Turks In Space

Turks do stuff in space, sort of, in this higher-budgeted kind-of sequel to Turkish Star Wars. In spite of CGI, better sets, and expensive-looking costumes, Turks In Space has a Sid & Marty Krofft air about it, and it's not nearly as terrible as Turkish Star Wars. Unfortunately, Sid & Marty Krofft's heyday was in the 1970s, and Turks in Space was filmed in 2006, if that puts things in perspective. It's really, really terrible. Borrowing a bit from Star Trek, a bit from Max Headroom, and finally whipping out the light sabers 10 minutes from the end of the film, Turks In Space bores. It's currently at #9 on IMDB's Bottom 100, but I've seen worse.

Somehow, Turkish Star Wars doesn't make the Bottom 100, and that's mystifying.
