YMMV: Starchaser: The Legend of Orin

  • Colbert Bump: It gained recognition when The Nostalgia Critic reviewed it in 2012. Before then, it didn't even have a Wikipedia page.
  • Cult Classic: Still a very obscure film, despite the aforementioned Colbert Bump.
  • Guilty Pleasure: The rape... er... re-programming scene can be viewed as this.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight
    • Despite the film's clear attempts to capitalize on the success of that other space opera classic, there is a scene in which the main hero cuts through a metal door with his Laser Sword and another where the Dark Lord falls down a large pit after being sliced horizontally in half with it. Coincidence?
    • Also, the blade being invisible on the hilt of the sword brings a certain famous sword to mind.
  • Memetic Molester: Dagg, largely due to the re-programming scene.
  • One-Scene Wonder: The Man-Droids are one of the few original elements in the film. They're placed in a fitting enviornment that gives a genuinely spooky atmosphere. They appear in only one scene, barely mentioned in the next, and never again.
  • So Bad, It's Good: To a degree. Itís genuinely fun at times, especially if you're into Black Humor, but the film is mostly known as a huge Star Wars rip-off.
  • Unfortunate Implications: Dagg turns Silica from bitchy to flirty by probing the "personality circuits" in her ass without her consent. Rape Is Love anyone?
    • It's not every movie that can combine Mind Rape and literal rape in one scene.
    • Oddly, she seems to be more concerned with him opening up her ass unit than, you know, rewriting her personality.
  • The Untwist: What? Zygon isn't a god after all?
