End of term project?,
This review is from: Star Wreck [DVD] (DVD)
Leaving aside the fact that this movie is in Finnish with subtitles; not noticed until actually in dvd player. It felt like watching the end of course exam entry from a bunch of media students. About as funny as toothache and lacking a script or acting ability. If you want a parody of Sci fi watch Spaceballs.

Sorry Mrs. Alison M. Bird but i found this movie VERY funny. I have had toothache and that's NOT funny. I think that you have a very poor sence of humour. You liked Spaceballs ,for me , that proves it..

Mr. REEF O. HADDAD says:
It is a film with no budget, there is no doubt about that. It's a fan-made parody. On the other hand, the fact that the special effects took the team several years to render is proof enough that the level of special effects is unparalleled in the world of no-budget film making (no big-budget render farms or the computing power of today).
Once again, how can the fact that a film is in Finnish possibly be a bad thing? It's bordering on racism. A lot of people reviewing this film seem offended by the idea of this being a foreign film.
You're correct about the acting, which is of little consequence in a sci-fi spoof, but still a valid point.
The film certainly wouldn't be lacking a script or there would be no film. Humour on the other hand is subjective and you're entitled to your opinion. However, there are very few sci-fi spoofs with the level of dark humour that Star Wreck possesses. Most star trek spoofs are simply content with the same old jokes relating to idiosyncratic elements of star trek while Star Wreck takes the humour in a new direction by implying that the star trek ideals could be interpreted as being imperialistic.

Actually it would be 'nationalism' presuming the writer, like the Finnish producers of the DVD, are caucasion.

Are you suggesting that racism is only based on colour? Is that itself not a racist way of thinking?
