Rewatching Dark Star

While his output has slowed down in recent years, John Carpenter is definitely one of the more interesting movie directors of the past decades.

Matthew Vaughn directed and co-scripted the movie with Jane Goldman and they did an outstanding job translating this really funny yet seriously violent comic […]
