The Ice Pirates (1984)

The Ice Pirates Quote: “I hope no one minds but I have no intention of facing this sober.” – Zeno

When Big D and Roger came up with the idea for “”Shat The Movies,”” they knew they wanted to start with all the films that defined the ’80s and ’90s. Movies like “Big,” “Pretty Woman” and, of course, “The Ice Pirates.” It took six years, but finally Pirates’ ship has come in.

In this episode, Gene notes how “”The Ice Pirates”” really forgot it was set in space. Dick applauds the movie for being consistent in its crappiness, and Ash critiques Anjelica Huston’s swordfighting prowess. The Shat Crew also discusses castration via conveyor belt, the film’s dramatic undertones and Big D’s theory that “The Ice Pirates” inspired the Burning Man festival.

Cheers to Shat Fantasy Football champ Hot Sauce Steve for the gifted commission. You made one little Shat host’s dream come true.

The galaxy is ruled by an evil emperor (John Carradine) presiding over a trade oligarchy that controls all mining and sale of ice from asteroids and comets.
