Although this film is one of the most intelligent and imaginative of its genre, with brilliant acting and a superb storyline, Columbia/Tristar has completely bungled the labeling and formatting of its multiple and differing releases of this great movie. Even Amazon.ca, the prime seller of the film for which this review is written, remains oblivious to the mislabeling of the DVD, despite my personal return of the product for a full refund, and my informing the company of the bogus, misleading nature of how the movie is described on Amazon.ca's own web-page. So I'll try one more time to explain to all potential customers, that this film is not the "Widescreen/Full Screen" version Amazon keeps insisting it is. It is not. What it is, in actuality, is the inferior Full Screen, pan & scan version that no real fan of any film ever wants by choice. The movie is virtually ruined with one-third of its image chopped-off of each side, and a five-star film is quickly reduced to a one-star rip-off of the original. That being said, the widescreen version of Starman is simply not available for any price from any seller that I could find. If you simply must have this otherwise outstanding gem, settle for the Full Screen version. A Blu-ray version is due soon, and that's the one to get, which is the one I'll be getting. Since almost all Blu-ray discs are widescreen, I needn't worry about a mislabeling problem. Don't bother writing Columbia, either; they're not interested in hearing how some great films are mishandled and virtually destroyed by marketeers who obviously know little or nothing about the film business.

I SAW THIS MOVIE YEARS AGO.AND TRIED TO LOCATE IT FOR PURCHASE FOR YEARS, AND FINALLY FOUND AN OLD BEAT UP COPY OF IT AT THE FLEA MARKET, AND GLADLY PAID THE ASKING PRICE, NO QUESTIONS..THERE IS NOT ONE SINGLE PART OF THIS MOVIE I DONT LOVE. THE STORY, IS BEAUTIFUL, THE MUSIC IS HAUNTINGLY BEAUTIFUL, AND THE ACTING IS CAPTIVATING. I WOULD PUT THIS IN MY "GEMS OF THE PAST" CATEGORY..IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A MOVIE THAT TRANSCENDS TIME, AND IS FILLED WITH ALL THE NECESSARY ELEMENTS THAT MAKE A MOVIE GREAT, THIS IS ONE, YOU CAN NOT GO WRONG WITH. I KNOW, I KNOW, YOU SEE IT IS MADE IN THE 80'S, AND YOU THINK, "OH, IT IS ONE OF THOSE 80'S POP CULTURE CHEESY MOVIES.." NO...THIS ONE COULD BE RE-RELEASED TODAY, AND STILL BRING IN A BUCK..GET THIS ONE YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT..IT HAS ACTION, ADVENTURE, LOVE AND SADNESS..EVERYTHING REQUIRED FOR AN EVENING OF ENTERTAINMENT..GUYS, GET THIS ONE FOR THAT DATE, AND SCORE BIG POINTS..TRUST ME..THIS ONE'S A KEEPER!!!!!!

I love the comparisons to the alien reactions to what we consider normal life experiences. The actors helped to make the experiences so real and believable.

Though made almost 20 years ago, this incredible movie never fails to move me every time I view it. John Carpenter has shown his multi talents and ability to create a masterpiece outside of his traditional genre and the stars Karen Allen and Jeff Bridges gave Oscar-deserving performances (at least the community had the smarts to nominate Bridges for Best Actor). A somewhat implausable theme of an alien visitor assuming the body of a deceased man allows Bridges to enchant his audience with his "becoming human". His teacher (Ms Allen) exemplifies the purity of the true human spirit in all of its kindness and truth. Starman is able to appreciate the purity of spirit and in the supporting cast we see our foibles mixed with what makes humankind so special in it's purest form. This is a love story that transcends all others and a masterpiece that might make you feel good about being a member of the human race...Bridges sums it up when comparing humans to other life forms he has observed in the universe with "what makes humans different is... that you are at your very best when things are at their worst" So true...so thought provoking! We owe Ms. Allen's Jenny Hayden character much thanks for showing us at our best and Mr. Bridges for showing us how to acknowledge the heart and grow to feel human love.

John Carpenter's STARMAN can be accused of stealing from everyone from Spielberg to every science fiction picture that came before, but there is a lot more to this film than most and its a surprise from John Carpenter. An alien comes to earth and somehow takes on the form of a widoed woman's (Karen Allen) late husband (Jeff Bridges). The military finds out about it, and as usual they go after him/it. The movie is part road picture, romance, and sci-fi. Everything about this movie would dictate predictability , but the main ingredient is that it has characters to really care about. Karen Allen's character is still in mourning for her late husband and the alien/husband Jeff Bridges is a shock to the system. Then comes the road picture where she relunctantly helps him for his rendezvous to be saved by his alien kin for he can only survive a short time in the human form. And in all road pictures of this sort, these people will fall in love. Again, the plot is somewhat predictable. It has conventional military characters especially the George Fox character played by the late great character actor Richard Jaeckel and the government scientist played by Charles Martin Smith. Through all the conventionalism, the movie works partly because of Jeff Bridges quirky performance way ahead of Dustin Hoffman's Rain Man or Tom Hanks' Forrest Gump, and the romantic angle of the two main leads. The movie generates more repeat viewings than Spielberg's E.T. because it doesn't have all those kids running around trying to be cute, it is less manipulative, and it is light on the sugercoating. A great piece of work from the guy who directed horror classics like Halloween and The Thing.
