DARK STAR - Blu-ray review

7 March 2014
  • Summary: Finally, after something like four decades, we get a frame-by-frame digital restoration of the film, presented in Blu-ray high definition. That's saying a lot for a cult film made on a shoestring.

  • Conclusion: Despite an extremely low budget, Dark Star is pretty funny and intelligent, with production values that, while cheap, still impress. The Blu-ray shows off the film to good advantage, and there are extras galore. Highly Recommended.

Dark Star

Rock! Shock! Pop!
5 April 2012
  • Summary: Dark Star remains a milestone in low budget filmmaking, a micro budgeted epic that would go on to have far more influence than it probably should have. An occasionally brilliant send up of sci-fi movies it stands as a testament to how creativity, imagination and talent can overcome budgetary restraints any day of the week, a relentlessly entertaining and very funny film well worth revisiting.

  • Conclusion: Although the movie is positively Das Bootian in its pacing, hats off nonetheless to young whippersnapper John Carpenter, whose studenty tale of space tedium, aliens and molasses-black humour remains approximately a thousand times better than the director's last 15 years of utter crapola.

Dark Star

26 March 2009
  • Excerpt: En kvartett skäggiga astronauter letar efter instabila planeter att spränga. Egentligen ska de också söka efter intelligent liv, men den biten verkar inte intressera dem nämnvärt. I en kupol på taket sitter Talby mest hela dagarna och tittar på stjärnorna. Doolittle saknar sin surfbräda. Boiler skjuter prick med lasergeväret för att fördriva tiden. Pinback känner sig utanför och anförtror sig åt videodagboken med några års mellanrum.
