By Grabthar's Review looks (favorably) on the new-fangled Blu-Ray release of Galaxy Quest, one of the greatest science fiction (and comedy) movies of all time.

It's very funny, and after watching so many big budget "comedies" lately that maybe have one laugh every half hour this truly means something. And it's funny that comes from character and not simply lame sit-com situations.

It's touching. It really has a great heart, which you rarely see in movies.

The visual effects are top knotch. Land of the Lost cost more than twice GQ's budget, but had a limp cartoony quality to it (if they didn't want it realistic, why didn't they just use a TV budget for LoL's effect?). ILM does some amazing work here.

It's a rousing adventure. One you want to go on with these great characters.

Seriously, if you haven't watched this movie yet, what the heck are you waiting for?
