by Stephen Farber

StarGate is an instant camp classic. Who could have imagined a cross between The Ten Commandments and The Wizard of Oz, spruced up with laser guns and wookies? Jaye Davidson plays the wicked witch of outer space--an androgynous despot with long fingernails and evil eyes. The whole extravaganza is fast-paced and compulsively watchable, in a way that only a truly demented movie can be.
