In the late '70s, Italian director Luigi Cozzi attempted to capitalize of the success of ''Franchise/StarWars'' by [[FollowTheLeader creating a space movie]] with B-movie faves Caroline Munro and Marjoe Gortner, plus Creator/ChristopherPlummer and even David Hasselhoff. The result? ''STARCRASH!''

Added DiffLines:

* EliteMooks: The Golems.


Added DiffLines:

* GreyAndBlackMorality: The Emperor's regime sees nothing wrong with sentencing people to a lifetime of slave labour in radioactive conditions with no protective clothing... but the film portrays them as the good guys because Zarth Arn is pretty-much literally a pantomime villain.


Added DiffLines:

* MsFanservice: Stella even manages to outdo the Amazons when it comes to inexplicable clothing choices.


Added DiffLines:

* ObiWanMoment: Fittingly for a StarWars rip-off, Akton gets one.
* ObviouslyEvil: Zarth Arn has a BeardOfEvil, an OminousOperaCape, dresses his {{Mooks}} in [[PaintItBlack black versions of the Emperor's troop uniforms]] and cannot go five minutes without [[EvilIsHammy monologuing dramatically]] or at least giving an EvilLaugh. Also he straight-up calls his weapon "The Doom Machine".


Added DiffLines:

* RammingAlwaysWorks: The titular "Starcrash" involves piloting a mobile city into an enemy ship.

* OrcusOnHisThrone: Zarth Arn's means of taking over the galaxy is a weapon so large it had to be hidden inside a planet. The weapon only seems to be able to attack things right next to the planet, which has no means of propulsion. Zarth Arn has nothing to do but walk around his spaceship talking about how he will rule the galaxy by sunrise.

''Starcrash'' is a [[SoBadItsGood hilariously bad]] movie, made better by the hilariously artificial-sounding translation. Many believe it to be even worse than that. It's a really, really, really badly done movie, so watch at your own peril.
