The Rufus Project Redeeming Features Cast: Starcrash (1978)

Kristian and Trevor take on the challenge of redeeming Starcrash from 1978.  Is it a fun adventure set in a galaxy far far away, or is it too close for comfort?

Should the Hoff even be a draw card?  Can the main characters talk without explaining everything?  When is it okay to change the future?  Does Christopher Plummer even care?  Can the robot’s dubbing be any worse?  Is this movie redeemable?

Listen on and find out!

Did we miss any redeeming features?  Do you think we were too generous or unfair?  Do you have a suggestion, or a challenge, for us to take on in the future?  Then get in touch with us by either leaving a comment on our homepageFacebook or Twitter, or email us at
