Project Moonbase Reviews
Rent the MST3K version.
The most strangest part of the film is the crews outfits, what the hell short, shorts and t-shirts with ugly caps??? how is that space worthy?. Special note of intrest, women in this film hold postions of power and are eqaul to men. 4/10
That's really about all there is to the story. The models are extremely and obviously cheap, the space uniforms (t-shirts, bicycle shorts and skullcaps) are ridiculous and so on.
I must admit though, that the split-screen effects on the SPACOM Space Station/Frisbee are not bad. Completely gratuitous, but not bad.
Also of interesting note is the progressive placement of women in positions of rank and power. Though that gets canceled out by some pretty blatant misogyny.
Overall, it's one for the B movie fans out there to look into.
However, that credit is negated by the intensely hostile attitude towards women. Colonel Briteis' authority is challenged at every turn. Her commanding officer threaten to spank her. Her subordinates purposely mispronounce her name as 'bright eyes'. It isn't until she begins acting all squishy and deferential towards men that they warm up to her and the film can conclude by having her married off to her previously hostile subordinate. Oh and he gets promoted ahead of her so the marriage can work. Nice.
