reminiscing about dark star

i was just skimming through empire online’s 50 greatest independent films list when i came across #27: dark star. i remember watching this vividly with tyler king for inspiration when we were making a movie of our own, starring lego men that had a tendency to get blown up. also, the evil villain in our film was played by a vic 20.

anyway, i had no idea this was a john carpenter (of halloween) film, and it would honestly be hard to know – this might’ve been the poorest quality movie i’ve ever seen. what stands out most in my mind was the fact that all of the credits were at the beginning, and that the character’s space suit was made of a muffin tin.

and now i want to watch it again.
