It's Not Lucas' Star Wars But A Solid Student Film

  • Excerpt: Before approaching this film, it's content or the technical aspects of the Blu-ray transfer, one must remember it started as an undergrad student 16mm short done by John Carpenter while he was at the USC film school.

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: If there was no Dark Star. Alien wouldn't ever exist. Very lo budget movie but entertaining. Has a documentary longer than the movie.

  • Excerpt: This was a blind buy for me also so I'm glad I got to see it for the first time on this blu-ray. Dark Star is infact a comedy. It doesn't come across as such very obviously since this is an ultra low budget college movie so naturally a lot of the film has cheesy aspects so as the previous reviewer...

A Comical, Sci-fi independent Student Film

  • Excerpt: Dark Star was a blind buy for me, I had heard of it yet never watched it in it's entirety. I am a fan of early John Carpenter work as well as sci-fi films like Alien, 2001: a Space Odyssey as well as other more independent style sci-fi works. Firstly, Dark Star is not meant to be taken seriously.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Sci-fi Hysteria!

11 December 2010
  • 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...
