Long time fan of the SciFi.
The other day I saw a flick that I had never seen before.
Dark Star. One of the most Bizarre thing I have ever seen.
I wanted to look away but just couldn't. Jaw agape.
It was by John Carpenter the Halloween, The Thing etc...
Basically a bunch of hippies flying around blowing up "unstable" planets with giant nukes.
And the sound track was this old 60's country rock stuff like the Flying Burrito brothers which was strangely incongruous and weirdly effective.
Apparently it's a bit of a cult movie.
Terrible special effects and stuff but it has a very odd trippy feel.
Very highly recommended. It's like the Dude in space sort of.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5FvCrfAuvEo
