Before there was Alien, there was Dark Star. It’s a difficult movie to explain. It’s sort of a comedy scifi movie with very bad special effects. Like, piss poor. But the overall effect of the movie is quite good. It ends with the memorable scene of an astronaut surfing his way into a planet’s atmosphere.
Anyway, it seems like just the type of movie that you could use as a stepping off point for a new, big budget Hollywood movie. It would be a lot of fun.
