Craggus Comfort Movies: The Ice Pirates (1984) Review

Something of the odd one out in this stroll down movie memory lane, “The Ice Pirates” is a favourite cheesy movie that I came across much later in life than the age of 10 or 11 which excuses many of my other Craggus Comfort Movie choices. I don’t think this got a cinema release here…

A few years back, having brought the “Harry Potter” series to a successful conclusion, Director David Yates boldly declared he would be making a new “Doctor Who” movie, with a new actor in the role and a new continuity, separate from the long-running TV series.
