Editorial Reviews

Nine men and women, employees of Interplanetary Corporation, live and work on Mars. Their days aren't particularly interesting, much less exciting, until they are assaulted by a murderous band of strangers and a seemingly unstoppable alien creature. Do these attacks have anything to do with the Martian fossil recently uncovered by one of the employees? Will the rapidly increasing body count adversely affect Interplanetary's stock price? And can anyone survive long enough to fill out the inevitable paperwork?

3.0 out of 5 stars Scifi Comedy March 16, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
First off, this is a comedy. Low budget (very simple sets), more along the lines of "Office" meets "Red Dwarf". There are a few good jokes in it. Think of a business office on mars, where everyone seems to be some kind of manager exec, and all they do is give orders, but none of them has any idea what's really going on. People are dying and the managers are only worried about the paperwork and the companies reputation.

There are a couple of quick shots of upper nudity on women, and some profanity. There are a few shots of (unrealistic) blood and gore. I don't want to give too much away story wise. I doubt you would watch this more than once, so rent it on a slow night. It is what it is.

4.0 out of 5 stars Middle managers on Mars April 9, 2012
Format:DVD
Reading others' comments about this film, I'm not sure everyone actually got the fact that Interplanetary is a sci-fi/horror comedy spoof laced with satire. On top of that, it's a very deliberate attempt to make a 1980s futuristic film, and that's why the video quality isn't pristine (it was shot on 16mm film) and the sets and special effects are somewhat primitive compared to today's digital standards. I suppose the fact that so many viewers criticize the video quality is actually a testament as to how effective writer/director Chance Shirley was at establishing his vision for the film. As for the acting, it is quite true that the cast members of Interplanetary aren't a heartbeat away from Broadway, but I think they're downright perfect for this film. They make it funnier than it already is - and it's pretty funny just on paper. We're basically talking about a space colony being run by middle managers having to deal with all kinds of situations that are nowhere to be found in the corporate manuals.

So yeah, Mars Base Two is run by a power-happy middle manager named Lisa (Melissa Bush), who reacts to any crisis by scheduling meetings, trying to contact the corporate office back on Earth for advice, and demanding impossible things from her employees. In other words, she's the type of ice queen who will lock down the entire base with a crew member outside trying to get back in. Up until now, things have been going just fine - largely because Mars Base Two serves almost no purpose. The only people who actually do anything are Wil (Chuck Hartsell) and his assistant, who go out on scouting missions trying to find an appropriate location for Mars Base Three.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun in the Martian Sun July 31, 2012
Format:DVD
Well, this isn't for everyone. But if you liked "Dark Star" then you will, in all likelihood, not hate this movie! It has some good acting, a plot that, unusual in modern films, isn't easy to predict and the occasional gratuitous space nudity! I also liked the score...

I'm giving it five stars because I just enjoyed it so much and have found myself watching it again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good gore soaked fun. July 15, 2011
Format:DVD
Interplanetary (2008)
Directed By: Chance Shirley

The Prologue
Anyone here ever heard of a sci-fi horror film named, Interplanetary?
Well, if you have yet to hear about it, now is a good of a time as any
to get really familiar with it. I can honestly say I had a massively
good time while watching it and I'm sure most of you will as well.
It's hard to make a space story blend in well with horror and comedy
but this movie gets it right for the most part. I was shocked by now
entertained I was but that just goes to show some of the better films
you can see are a lot of the times the ones you've never heard of
before.

The Movie
Nine men and women, employees of Interplanetary Corporation, live and
work on Mars. Their days aren't particularly interesting, much less
exciting. Until they are assaulted by a murderous band of strangers
and seemingly unstoppable alien creature. Do these attacks have
anything to do with the Martian fossil recently uncovered by one of
the employees? Will the rapidly increasing body count adversely affect
interplanetary's stock prices? And can anyone survive long enough to
fill out the inevitable paperwork?.. The tone of this plot summary
should be all you need to figure out the tone of this movie.

I wasn't sure of what I was getting myself into when I popped in
Interplanetary, but I was happy with what I got as the result. What
you have here is a movie that seems to have humor that's a little on
the dry side. It's funny and it doesn't just think it's funny, it's
literally funny.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some independent science April 30, 2011
Format:DVD
Once you get past the initial realization that this will be a very independent, probably low-budget film, you will still get caught in the proverbial gravitational pull of this little story. Yes, the acting is wooden, and aside from the annoying Lisa, none of the actors are particularly captivating. But the story is tight and reasonably paced, and the scenes never linger. Comparisons will range from Dark Star to the inevitable Alien franchise. The director/producer wisely chose tension over special effects. The special effects that you do see will either make you go `meh' or make you roll your eyes in disgust. There are some decent scenes of mayhem, however. One interesting element: there is no swearing! It was actually built into the storyline about these devices that censor the characters' respective dialogues. Thematically, an underlying cynicism pervades, but never directly undercuts the humor or the story itself. The message is simple: hold your goals and dreams dear, but keep that management and science even closer!

This one could easily become a cult classic. It's about a company called Interplanetary that runs what's supposed to be the only space base on Mars. Read more
