Well, being curious to see it is not the same as demanding it be released, and even if it were, the PG theatrical version would still be the final product. I'm just thinking in terms of an extra feature on some future release, but since they already did a special edition, I'm not holding my breath.

Depends on the context.

There are a few films I can think of though that would have been PG-13 or close to it if not for the language. Patriot Games is film where if they modified the language a bit would have been PG-13. A lot of the brutal violence is implied, rather than shown. A PG-13 rating also would make more sense for that series (Jack Ryan), seeing as The Hunt For Red October was PG and the following film Clear and Present Danger is PG-13 and is arguably more violent than Patriot Games.

Aliens is another borderline PG-13 if not for language.

The only reason Planes, Trains and Automobiles is R is for Steve Martins F-bomb laden rant at the rental counter. However in that instance it's creative and shows just how far his nice-guy character has been pushed over the edge.

Maybe's it's because I'm an old guy but I no longer believe movies are automatically improved by actors swearing. This movie doesn't need more sex and bad language.

Even at my age, it's nice to be able to watch a movie with my mother once in a while. GALAXY QUEST is a good PG movie and that's just fine.

Agreed.

Well, it depends on the theme of the movie for me. I'm okay with strong language in movies like Se7en, etc.

Is there definitely a reissue? It doesn't appear on Amazon.com, and the pre-order link on Blu-ray.com is broken.

It would be nice if Warner did new art for their releases. I would actually rebuy the disc for less terrible-looking artwork.

I was watching The Avengers today and for some reason, this flick popped into my head. Glad to see it's on Blu, I'll get it soon.

Amazon lists a 25th Anniversary edition, which is obviously incorrect, lol. But, one is $25 and one is $13. Any difference between these?

I wouldn't be surprised if someone was trying to pass off the 25th Anniversary of Spaceballs as Galaxy Quest.

Prices are different now, one lists a "newer version": it's one of the titles Warner is now re-distributing for Paramount. Same discs (contents), different UPC.

Yeah, it looks like somehow the Paramount edition was labeled the "25th Anniversary Edition" and the new Warner edition is the cheaper one.

BTW, I recommend checking out the Thermian audio track if you haven't already.

Make sure you're not eating or drinking anything; I almost had to take my wife to the hospital.

Just watched this again after Alan Rickman's passing (with a snifter of Jack Daniel's Honey, mmmm) and, oh, what a lovely looking Blu-ray. I know Torsten Kaiser tore it a new one here (while extolling the virtues of timed positive material in the same interview, so it's not quite as easy as just slapping an IP onto disc then), but even though I saw the movie theatrically I couldn't begin to tell you what it looked like so I've gotta take this Blu on its own merits, and to me it looks great for what it is.

Okay, it's clearly NOT some super-sharp scan off the neg that everyone be craving nowadays, but it's very unusual for a Paramount catalogue title because there's no sharpening or untoward noise reduction on it and it looks so natural, for want of a better description. There are a few dupes and some live action VFX shots which are less than stellar but apart from that it's got a lovely un-****ed with look and the blacks are good and deep. The occasional flecks of dirt just add to the charm.

The movie itself is pure gold, it's satirical but it's also pure wish-fulfilment, it's even quite touching at times, that's such a fine line to tread but it pulls it off so well. And throughout all of that it remains funny as HELL, they're all great but Sam Rockwell in particular absolutely smashes it as the red shirt who makes it through to become a regular. The space-bound VFX is superb (ILM FTW) and I love the music too, the practical work for the crustacean-like baddies is also magnificent. It was even shot anamorphic (unusual, given the amount of Super 35 stuff that was made at the time) so it's also got that proper 'Panavision' appearance to it. It's the best Trek movie never made.

Such a fun film. I still get the biggest laugh from the deleted scenes, the one where Rickman's character is shown his quarters, and the toilet they made for him based on their analysis of his anatomy. That cracks me up just thinking about it.

My favourite's the original ending with Sarris, when Sam Rockwell sees him waking up and tries to get the gun to work, the way he says "help me" so impassively while he's thrown across the room absolutely destroys me every time. Rockwell is this movie's secret weapon.

This film might just be the most watched movie in my life. I never tire of it.

On another note (and don't mean to distract), Alan Rickman rocked in The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy too, just using his voice to play Marvin. Cracks me up.

I do love this movie. Alan Rickman's line in front of the electronics store ("By Grabthar's hammer... what a savings.") has me on the floor every time. It takes a truly fabulous actor to convey so much bemusement, humiliation, resignation, and pathos in those six words. Very sad that's he's gone

And the deleted scenes are funny, but they also show how well-edited the film is. They let go of a lot of stuff that there was really nothing wrong with, but which would probably have slowed the pace down too much.

And the cast is so perfect, that nobody really steals the movie. The chemistry is terrific.

"Hi guys, they're telling me that the engines can't take it, and the ship's coming apart and all that. Just FYI."

"Hey, don't open that! It's an alien planet! Is there air??!! You don't know!"
