BARBARELLA (1968) July 3, 2012 Paramont

BD:July 3, 2012
List Price: $19.99

Barbarella is marked by the same audacity and originality, fantasy, humor, beauty and horror, cruelty and eroticism that make comic books such a favorite. The setting is the planet Lythion in the year 40,000, when Barbarella (Jane Fonda) makes a forced landing while traveling through space. She acts like a female James Bond, vanquishing evil in the forms of robots and monsters. She also rewards, in an uninhibited manner, the handsome men who assist her in the adventure. Whether she is wrestling with Black Guards, the evil Queen, or the Angel Pygar, she just can't seem to avoid losing at least a part of her skin-tight space suit!

Good deal: Barbarella on Blu-Ray for $10

I believe Best Buy is matching prices. This is a good thing for everyone.  I stopped buying things from Amazon because sometime their packaging description turned out to be different than what they ship.  This happened to me twice, the last time it was for the BATTLE ROYALE "Book" packaging - instead they sent me a standard Bluray case.  Sometime they ship blurays without "slip" covers, so basically if you're looking for a particular packaging - I wouldn't order it sight unseen.

Anyway, I picked up Barbarella Blu-Ray for $10, with a nice fold-out slip cover.  Granted, some people don't like the slip covers - but personally, I like it.  This special/limited slip cover is semi-glossy and has indents/popup.  Opening the fold, reveals more artwork.  For $10, it's cheaper than tracking down the original DVD release.

As for the movie, it's a pretty silly movie. What can you expect from a film based on a French adult comic book? Lots of nudity, including Jane Fonda, and surprisingly rated only PG, not PG-13 or R.

And man, who wouldn't want to fonda Jane?
