I love it *because* it's trash.
17 April 2002 | by Sarah-nekoSee all my reviews

I love this movie very much. It should be enjoyed with plenty of alcohol (spirits for preference) and a few witty friends who enjoy making up porno dialogue. It was my sister who pointed out that the lighting and the odd grainy/cloudy look of the film (video?) were exactly like what one sees in late-night soft-porn TV shows like 'The Click' and 'Red Shoe Diaries' (don't look at me, *she's* the one who likes them) and we just went off from there. It should be noted that 'Star Hunter' is complete and utter tripe. No- one in it can act except Roddy McDowell and the stoner guy. There is no sense of pace or suspense whatsoever; we are told at the very beginning (with Star Wars-style scrolling text - or, for Sailor Moon fans, 'From a far away place and time Earth's greatest adventure is about to begin') who the aliens are and what they're up to. The characters are perhaps zero point five dimensional. There is so much that is so cool in an incredibly BAAAAAD way. Like the alien dude with Vulcan ears and a Klingon forehead. And> the device for foiling the hunter using string and tinfoil. And Cooper's origami bird. Actually the origami bird was sort of nifty. A stupid movie which smart people can enjoy very much, if they're in the right mood.
