Dark Star ()

directed by
featuring Brian Narelle, Andreijah Pahich, Carl Duniholm, Dan O'Bannon

The directorial debut of horrormeister John Carpenter comes in the way of Dark Star a parody of Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece, 2001--A Space Odyssey. The story follows four hippyish techno-nerds in their mission through deep space to destroy planets and ward off boredom and loneliness as they attempt to hold on to what little they can remember of Earth. When their weapons system malfunctions, they are forced to deal with a "smart" bomb trapped in the launching mechanism, and the acting captain must debate phenomenology with the device in order to dissuade it from destroying them all. The film also features an imaginative and amusing struggle between one crew member and an inflatable alien he attempts to keep as a pet, a long reflection on the virtues of surfing, a series of personality struggles, and a cryogenically-frozen captain whose brain is preserved on computer for the purpose of consultation. ~ Jeremy Beday, Rovi Hide synopsis

John Carpenter's First Effort

by mehaul on Feb 25, 2010

TITLE: Dark Star GENRE: SciFi - far future terran CAST: Brian, Dre, Cal and Dan PLOT: In a take-off of Douglas Adams' beginning of "Hitchhikers Guide to The Galaxy", Earth space command has crews out blowing planets out of the way in case they might... blow up! Our descendents don't seem to be very bright judging by to this crew. A good case against drug culture. This is John Carpenter's College project!.!.! RETURN ON INVESTMENT: 3 of 10; redeeming values are ... well they used what sets they had well. This is.. ah .. a .. lot of the dialoge. A painted giant beach ball/tomato runs loose through the ship with a mind of it's own. Chuckle. DVD BONUS: It comes in a snap case?
