  • Summary: A dirt cheap sci-fi film from the 70's. For being considered a comedy, there's almost no jokes here. In fact, there's not much of anything going on. This is a short subject movie that's been padded with many dull and uninteresting scenes to stretch it to feature length. You could say that it is technically competent considering it's microscopic budget, but it has no story to offer.

  • Summary: Cheap and rather slapdash debut by John Carpenter. It reeks of post modern humour in the vein of Douglas Adams and there are some very funny moments, but it's also dull and amateurish for extended periods.

"Classic slapstick/sci-fi tropes with ontological aftertaste."

  • Summary: Though set in deepest “space” – and most probably viewed from an armchair in your living room – the archetypes are as real as the machine you play your DVD's on… If not more real.

  • Conclusion: I have an old VHS tape of this that is surprising still watchable, but now I have a blue ray player. This is an iconic Sci Fi comedy. I have watched it many times over the years and still enjoy it. Notice how the end sequence (last 10 mins I think) is actually taken from a short story by Ray Bradbury , I can't remember which book it's from but I think it's one from 'The Illustrated Man' . A Wonderful film, you won't be disappointed .

Sci-fi Hysteria!

  • Conclusion: This is unquestionably THE most hilarious black comedy. Notwithstanding the fact that it's a sci-fi, I'd put it up there with Dr Strangelove for its very odd yet very meaningful message, The fact that both have a massive bomb in a major role is actually not entirely relevant, but the message to mankind is clear in both films, If you enjoyed the quirkiness of Silent Running, you'll enjoy this movie, but in a different way.

  • Summary: Oder: Hippies im Weltraum Das ist kein Alien! Die Dark Star ist seit 20 Jahren im All unterwegs. Mit ihr vier Astronauten, ein Bordcomputer mit verführerisch weiblicher Stimme und Smartbombs, die ihrem Namen eigentlich alle Ehre machen. Der Auftrag heisst: das Universum von unstabilen Planeten säubern, die eine Kolonialisierung des Alls gefährden könnten. Dazu werden diese schlicht und einfach, *bumm*, weggesprengt.
