4.0 out of 5 stars Not as bad as feared
I must confess that the first review I read of the recently released blu ray had me spooked.
My pre-order had arrived and was as yet unviewed. Haven't watched the whole movie yet but here are my first impressions of the transfer. The picture quality wasn't the disaster I expected. True there is a degree of grain which is only to be expected on a movie more than 50...

3.0 out of 5 stars "...One day we must meet in the flesh, ahem"
The 1960s produced some of the most important works of science-fiction in cinematic history - features which have influenced generations, pushed boundaries of technique and storytelling. La Jetee, 2001: A Space Odyssey and Planet of the Apes stimulate the cerebrum and represent a master class in allegorical exploration of what it is to be human - but only Barbarella saw...

5.0 out of 5 stars Sadly no Extra features, 8 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very excited to get this camp sci fi classic on high definition blue ray. Sets and props look amazing and Paco Rabanne's costumes fabulous as ever. Very sad that there are no extras whatsoever on this release (apart from a trailer).

For peolpe of a certain age this has to be one of the real cult classics, I first saw this film when it was originally released in the cinema and watching again on dvd brings back so many memories. Happy times and Jane Fonda is gorgeous.

Russem.

3.0 out of 5 stars Barbarella, Queen of the Galazy...., 18 Jan 2011

Very much a film of its time methinks! Love versus hate, and love conquers all. Our heroine, the lovely Barbarella, all sweet and innocent and full of love, is sent off to find a missing scientist, Duran Duran, and prevent the construction and use of a new weapon of mass destruction. We follow our heroine on her fantastic adventure to find Duran Duran. Strange tales indeed ensue. Once she finds him it turns out he is in fact a mad scientist, mad bent on conquering the universe. He takes her prisoner and tries to kill her using his orgasmatron weapon against her, but Barbarella is so full of love she breaks the machine which bursts into flames, at which time the mad scientist breaks down and sets free the Magmous, which looks really gooey! And that's about it really.

As films go, its all over the place. Redeeming features are Jane Fonda and well, Jane Fonda! Duran Duran is apparently the inspiration behind the naming of the band Duran Duran. Its an almost interesting quirky film from the sixties which I would recommend to anyone interested in quirky sixties scifi.

Funny old SF film. Extraordinary Jane Fonda's charme. Dialogs very easy to understand for no mother tongue like me. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Barbarella Still Has It, 15 May 2010

This review is from: Barbarella [DVD] [1968] (DVD)
Probably not for those who expect tight script, gritty action and believable acting. However, don't discount this classic sci-fi as 60's sexploitation. It does have a story - if strange - and the plot does progress from introduction to conclusion albeit with a few detours. The special effects are best described as 'quaint', and the eponymous Barbarella is wonderfully overplayed by the young and very sexy Jane Fonda.
Barbarella is one of those films which fall very clearly into one of two categories...you either love it or you loathe it.
Which, is up to you.

Camp, over the top, tongue in cheek, naive, but with a hint of the dark side. Jane Fonda is great, excellent soundtrack' stunning visuals for the date and brill supporting cast.
