Confession. I haven’t seen Galaxy Quest. I mean, I’m sure I’ve technically seen the whole thing in bits and pieces on cable (and my best friend’s dad in high school was a huge Star Trek nerd so he had the laserdisc of this on repeat at their house), but I’ve never actually sat down to watch the entire thing. I think this has a lot to do with the fact that it came out in 1999, a year in which I was an insufferable faux snob, only deigning to watch stuff like Magnolia, Fight Club and Being John Malkovich. I just didn’t have the time for a goofy movie with Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman and Sam Rockwell. Turns out I was likely wrong, and I continue to pay the price.
Time has been kind to Galaxy Quest in terms of cultural response, and from what I gather this is exactly the kind of movie I’d be into these days. So I’ll watch it at some point soon I’m sure. Nudging that progress along are those comments from the producers, writer, director and stars. Hit the jump for their comments and their take on the prospect of a Galaxy Quest sequel.
