Dark Star review

51U4YI6AcHL. SX385 Dark Star

In the mid twenty-first century, mankind has reached a point in its technological advances to enable colonization of the far reaches of the universe. DARK STAR is a futuristic scout ship traveling far in advance of colony ships. Armed with Exponential Thermosteller Bombs, it prowls the darkest reaches of space on a mission to seek out and destroy unstable planets ahead of the colonist. But there is one obstacle that its crew members did not count on — one of the ship’s thinking and talking bombs is lodged in the bay, threatening to destroy the entire ship and crew! DARK STAR was originally intended to be a 68 minute film. Jack Harris, the Hollywood producer, convinced the filmmakers to shoot 15 minutes of extra footage and he released the expanded version theatrically in 1975 through Bryanston Pictures.

Funny and irrelevant, it’s almost like 4 insane space truckers are sharing the cab of a space truck doing space trucker things, all while going slowly more and more insane.  The AI on the bomb isn’t the only thing that isn’t working right after a few years of living together.

Enjoyable for what it was, but don’t set your expections too high.  or at all.  set them pretty low is what I’m saying.
