Added DiffLines:

* FridgeBrilliance: The placement of Alex in the front seat of the Gunstar, with Grig's pilot seat in the back, seems odd, but it makes sense given the Gunstar is a weapons platform, and it gives the Starfighter the maximum field of view to fire. This also parallels the design of the AH-64 Apache attack helicopter, which went into service around the same time as the movie.

** Centauri peeling off his "face" and polishing his eyeballs, then turning to show Alex a black reptilian face with glowing eyes.

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: While the effects were ObviousCGI even at the time (the CGI effects were done with the equivalent of a smartphone's processor), the Death Blossom and Star Car sequences still hold up.

** Even if the CG ships are very primitive by today's standards, they arguably paved the way for a whole new way to look at ships moving in space, a tradition carried on by their {{SpiritualSuccessor}}s in ''Series/Babylon5''.

* UncannyValley: An accidental case. Further scenes with Beta required reshoots, and Lance Guest had to wear an obvious wig, which just emphasizes that he's playing a robot pretending to be human.



* VindicatedByCable: {{Creator/HBO}} was the best thing to happen to the film.

** When Xur broadcasts the execution of the spy he's captured to the Star League.

to:

** The Xandoxan's severed arm reaching up, raygun clutched in its hand, to fire at Alex (the bolt that "killed" Centauri). Burning off it's ''arm'' with a raygun won't stop it, ''what the hell will?!''

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: ...for the time, anyway. As it says on the main page, the CGI effects were done with the equivalent of a smartphone's processor, and they look outdated, but the Death Blossom sequence still holds up.
** As does the Star Car, which is almost indistinguishable from the real life-size model.

Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: Grig says he prefers to think of death as going to another dimension. One wonders if the team behind the infamously Bowdlerized first English dub of ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' took inspiration from this.
