great cult status start
Dark Star film most of john carpenter's films are cult classics. this would be the first. consider this:this movie was actually a student film,made for approx.60.000 bucks,and was a major impact involving independent films. the dvd transfer is remarkably superb. especially for a film from 1974. considering that the filmmakers had little to work with, their creativity shines through brilliantly. this movie ,when viewed in the proper context, is quite enjoyable. weakness? well the acting is not all that great. but the directing and the way that the story is told will make you forget about that. this was also made with the help of dan o bannon, another student at u.s.c. with carpenter. of course he would go on to bigger things{as would carpenter} with doing the screenplay for alien and total recall!! in closing this is a parody/sci-fi/suspense/ movie. given the fact on how this movie was created and produced and how it became a cult classic i give it a thumbs up and recommend highly. watch the uncut version though. it will give you a better sense of what the story details.

Another dimension, it could be yours !
"Dark Star" seems like a space comedy, but especially if you watch it alone, you'll be carried out into another dimension. Look over the mediocre decoration, then you'll find it fascinating to be out there in deep space. This movie shows you all the difficulties long-term space travellers have to cope with. Hey, you never know....

Cheesy but fun !!!
This is a spanish language review: Recuerdo que cuando apenas era un niño mi padre em llevó a ver la película "Mi nombre es Trinity" con Bud Spencer y Terence Hill, antes de que diera inicio proyectaron el trailer de "Dark Star",a mis ocho años fué quizá la experiencia más impactante que había tenido en el cine. Nunca tuve la oportunidad de verla,ni siquiera en video. Peroj usto hace una semana recibí mi copia en dvd. ¿Valió la pena la espera?, por supuesto!!! Si bien esta película se encuentra sumamente avejentada, el humor y la malicia de los diálogos, la inocencia de los efectos visuales, y el aprovechamiento de escenarios (y recursos) muy limitados, la convierten en una pequeñajoya pra todos aquellos que nos declaramos seguidores de la obra de John Carpenter. Además, por un precio que raya en lo ridículo, ¿qué más podríamos pedir. Quizá que las compañías productoras recordaron que buena parte de los compradores de sus producciones son hispanoparlantes,por lo que los subtítulos en español sería bienvenidos.

In Space no one can hear you laugh!
Dark Star review .... But you will do an awfull lot of it with this one. I used to have this on VHS, lost it.... and I am so pleased to have it back in my collection in a much higher quality format. There is so much to admire about this movie... the talking bombs, the dead captain, the whacked out crew!!... and who can forget the beach Ball Alien!!... An absolute Must for Sci-Fi comedy fans!!
