Dark Star Review


Very Good
Largely a goof on 2001, John Carpenter's super-low-budget sci-fi pic gets a really slow start but becomes tons of fun for its last couple of acts. Borrowing from H.A.L.'s conflicted nature, Star Trek's world view, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and various sci-fi stories, it all comes down to convincing a talking bomb not to blow up while still attached to the ship -- a ship which had its captain killed and its toilet paper supply destroyed by a radiation leak. 20 years later, an apathetic crew faces off with the bomb determined to go off and a an alien (actually an inflatable ball) loose on the ship. Actually a student film Carpenter shot at USC, the often hilarious film is actually rated G.
