Featured Release: Barbarella – Queen of the Galaxy
It appears that this week is going to be a light week, as I imagine the movie and video game companies figure nobody will be home to buy them. While I’m a huge fan of Rocko’s Modern Life, I figure I’ll devote this week’s feature to a sci-fi classic – Barbarella.
The 1968 film, based on a ‘60s French comic book heroine, is a cult favorite – an example of the ‘60s sexploitation genre. Starring Jane Fonda and Marcel Marceau, Barbarella features the “titular” character leaving the sex-starved environs of Earth for the sexually-liberated expanses of the universe.
Honestly, I watched this movie in college at a cult movie night and totally don’t get it. Then again, I don’t live in the ‘60s nor partake in psychedelic narcotics, so definitely not my bag. But, you can definitely appreciate it for it’s sci-fi campiness. So definitely worth a watch.
Barbarella – Queen of the Galaxy is coming out on Blu-ray today!
