To the Stars by Hard Ways

Dubbed in English and released on video as Humanoid Woman, this 1981 sci-fi feature from the Soviet Union was eagerly snapped up by Mystery Science Theater 3000, and even in this 2001 restoration its kitschy adventure invites more chuckles than chin stroking. In the 23rd century, cosmonauts encounter a deserted spaceship filled with weird fetuses and a bug-eyed, va-va-voom android (Yelena Metyolkina) they cart back to earth. Eventually visitors from her home planet arrive, and the earthlings set out to save the distant world from ecocollapse and a bulb-headed midget who bottles and sells fresh air. Capitalist swine! Richard Viktorov directed. In Russian with subtitles. 121 min.
