I did.  I was a big fan of the first movie, and Viva Rock Vegas took that joy and obliterated it.   :'(   I'm curious to see if I like the movie any better now, as I haven't seen the first movie in many years.

Starship Troopers is next, and thats followed by Viva Rock Vegas. I know how to make fun of Starship Troopers (since I watched it twice right before someone put it on the voting block), Starship Troopers is actually a smart movie and I will thoroughly dissect it.

We need a Tie Breaker if the vote doesn't change by 6PM PST

I will leave it up to Google Fight and the loser will automatically move to the next round with the third highest voted option.

So VOTE people, find someone who hasn't voted, isn't participating and get them to vote for the movie you want to win.

Starship Troopers
Streaming Link: Hulu | Crackle
Quote from: Netflix
Starship Troopers

Made: 1997
Rated: R
Length: 130 minutes

In this sci-fi adventure based on a novel by Robert A. Heinlein and directed by Paul Verhoeven, fire-spitting, brain-sucking bugs attack Earth, and the city of Buenos Aires is wiped off the map. Coming to the rescue are Johnny Rico (Casper Van Dien), Dizzy (Dina Meyer), Carmen (Denise Richards) and Ace (Jake Busey), courageous soldiers who travel to the distant Klendathu system for the ultimate showdown.

Lights are dimmed, and the previews are over, so everyone have at it.

It's not often you can sum up a guy's love life [with women] in a single screencap.

Neil, Neil, Neil... where did your mother and I go wrong?



Hey do you guys mind if we stop at Starbucks? Like omg, k, last week I was there, tryyyying to buy a double latte venti with sprinkles and cinnamon-but no whipped cream (because of all the calories right?) when the guy behind the counter goes on his lunch break and he REFUUUSES to serve me! I was like, that's totalllly bs, hello? I am a paying customer, you have to serve me, that's your JOB. And then I get a call from Cathy who's been waiting for me at Target for like 15 minutes wondering where I am and then the manager walks up and then I'm like, perfect, now I can get my coffee and leave but nooo he refuses to talk to me while I'm on the phone! Can you belieeeeve these people?

I always thought Casper Van Dean would have a bigger career. What did he have? Starship Troopers, The Omega Code, and a supporting role in Sleepy Hollow?

Johnny Rico is a High School Student, just about to Graduate

he has a girlfriend that he wants to be with

she resembles the great late Michael Jackson, or does he resemble her?

Johnny is good at sports

but has low grades

he wants to join the Military

mainly because his girlfriend wants to join

but his parents don't approve

but he's going to join anyway, because its his choice

the other reason he wants to join is because
he gets to fly in ships

shoot bugs

and enjoy co-ed showers, censored for your eyes!



despite being perfect for the job he has some set backs
his girlfriend dumps him as soon as he joins..they are in different branches anyhow


he gets a man killed, and as a result he gets his ass whipped like Kunta Kente.


but despite this he finds purpose

the bugs kill his parents and many people he knows, and destroy his hometown


now this sounds like the plotline for some fascist military recruitment movie? :P







some critics panned this movie as nothing more then a mindless summer blockbuster
about shooting bugs

but it is actually quite an intelligent satire, about facism and militarism. The acting is masterfully hammy and cliché. The movie doesnt act like its a 1997 movie about the future, it acts like a 2357 movie aimed to propagandize a generation into a contemporary fascist state.
The movie is made by Paul Verhoeven who geniusly lampooned corporations in Robocop. The movie is designed entirely to mimic a propaganda film of the 1940s, it might as well be about this guy. Squint your Eyes.



unfortunately the sequels are all B movies

If it's so intelligent and masterfully acted, why did I want to kill myself when I realized there was an hour left? Why are they still using machine guns in 2357 when they know they're ineffective? Why don't they drop a nuke from an airplane instead of trying to fight their way through hoards?

I'm bored of MFT if nobody's gonna participate.

Chill out.  I'm probably going to be joining the fray within a day or so (though don't expect mountains of images and pithy little internet jokes.  That's not my thing), as I just need to acquire the movie.  I haven't seen Starship Troopers in ages, so that could be fun.  I actually have kind of fond memories of that CG animated series that came after it, though they're soured by the fact that the show was canceled before it ever got a conclusion.

Casper Van Dien hasn't gone far because he's not a great actor, he was probably picked because he was such a ham bastard who is more good looking than talented. Some **** is so hammy it must be satirical, like the end scene when they pull out the huge Vagina Brain and Dougie Houser gives his big speech about how it wasn't all their big technology that got the Brain it was a drill sergeant who did the move that was a turning point in the war. Its the type of movie made by the Nazis to get the average German soldier to join the party. However, American WWII propaganda was just as bad.





http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ldrhzw-ZKbA
not an actual propaganda video

the nuking the planet thing I thought about too...you see thats the best way to do it, but the Federation is raising dumb people and sending them to war so they can combat overpopulation. Why not use tanks, and air raids? Why are they fighting WWI style? Also, nuking the planet makes in uninhabitable. They might be wanting to colonize it.

I really want to know what it takes to get Broodwars, The Unagi, Halbred, Easycure, Stratos and anyone else that was interested in participating to participate. Seriously, let me know.

I'm gonna suggest that one of them have to start off the next movie (Labyrinth) before Zap, The Perm or myself get into it.

Now I'm about to load up Starship Bloopers and see what I can make out of this movie.

I don't think I ever actually realized that Doogie Howser was in this movie.(from the pics above)

I also never noticed how bad the CG was for that missing arm from the teacher.


I would do pics again, but this laptop is on it's last week(s) and streaming video from Hulu is choppy to say the least. Rewinding also leads to commercials breaks so that makes getting the perfect pic also a little hard.

But Rico's girl could pilot my ship anytime. and I mean anytime.
that goes for the other jealous chick too.

edit: Here is a direct link to the movie from crackle.com(the place that Hulu is streaming from)

I know it's been mentioned but are we really supposed to believe that thy are High School students? Is that what they are supposed to be? because Rico looks to be pushing 30 (mid to late 20's easy) and the jealous chick looks to be slightly older than that.

after a quick IMDB search...
(Both of them were actually born 3 days apart back in Dec. of 1968.... This movie was made in 1997. that makes them both almost 30 when this came out.)

Wow, I just realized that every time I've watched this movie, it's been when it aired on TV (I think).

That first shot of the schools dance reminded me a little bit of Rain in Las Vegas.
Has anyone been there before? I think it's in the Palms Hotel.

& LOL at the "Mobile Infantry made me the man I am today" scene.
That's when he realized that he should have studied a little harder when he was in school.

edit: 1:35am

It's always funny to go back and watch a movie and now recognize an actor who was a nobody back then.

The "Are you a psychic?" guy is Detective Lasseter "Lassie" from the show Psych.

edit: 1:58am

DAAYUUUUM

Break up over pre-recorded message infront of the whole room & ended it with the "lets be friends" line. That is cold.
You'd think that in whatever year they are in right now, they would have some real-time video conferencing in a way that was more private than that. Considering that everyone today has a personal cell phone that for the most part is technically capable of doing that today, I would expect it from the people of the future as a standard.


edit: 2:15am

"Luck had nothing to do with it.... we have a helluva fight team!"

More like you have a new recruit that changed your flight path (unauthorized) and put you directly in harms way even damaging your ship and losing personnel in the process. Is she gonna get rewarded for her efforts?
