For my money, Galaxy Quest represents the best single performance of Tim Allen's career. His casting is spot on as the narcissistic and swaggering "Commander" of the NSEA Protector in this pitch-perfect send-up of the Star Trek TV series and films. I know it's meant primarily as a satire, but Galaxy Quest serves equally well as an loving tribute to the genre. The cast is universally excellent with Alan Rickman as the heavily made-up alien serving with the otherwise human crew, Sigourney Weaver as the useless eye-candy on the bridge, Tony Shalhoub as the just-barely offensive racial stereotype, and Sam Rockwell as the anonymous random crewmember (i.e., "red shirt") who is convinced at every turn of his immenent horrific death. For a blu-ray the picture is quite serviceable, but not demo quality. The same can be said of the TrueHD 5.1 audio. Of special note is a blu-ray exclusive special feature called the "Galactopedia". If you've seen the "Library Computer" feature on any of the Star Trek blu-rays, they you will especially appreciate this hilarious trivia supplement that is appropriately patterned after it. It's jam-packed with genuinely funny "facts", as if the fictional "Galaxy Quest" had been a real TV show. Overall this movie has aged very well, it looks and sounds good, is still very funny today, and is a bargain at under $10.

If you have seen any of the Star Trek episodes, this is a parody that will have you crying with laughter. Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, and Allan Rickman are natural comedians and you can tell that they had such fun doing this film. I have had this film for years, but seeing it in Blu-ray is unbelievable. It is one of my favorites!
