By Grabthar's Hammer, The Fifth Reel invites you to join us at The Plaza on Expo weekend for our favourite con movie: GALAXY QUEST!
“Twenty years after their series was cancelled, the five stars of the classic '70s series "Galaxy Quest" are still in costume, making appearances at sci-fi conventions for legions of die-hard fans - but some of those fans are a little more far out than the actors could have ever imagined. A group of aliens who have mistaken intercepted television transmissions for "historical documents" arrive at a convention and whisk "Commander Peter Quincy Taggart" and his crew into space to help them in their all-too-real war against a deadly adversary. With no script, no director and no clue about real space travel, the actors have to turn in the performances of their lives to become the heroes the aliens believe them to be." - Rotten Tomatoes

"They're in the shadows. They're lurking in the swamps. They're hiding under your bed. THE DETRACTIONS, are waiting patiently tto melt your face and make you rock like the living dead with their insane Surf Punk style… Just watch out because they're right behind you!" -Attainable Records, 2015
