Starship Troopers...

Mon May 16, 2011 4:23 am

First thing I noticed about the Roku was how much the UI reminded me of the "Federation" propaganda version of the Internet. Today, Starship Troopers 3 showed up on Netflix and guess what, the planet is called Roku San...

Wonder if this is a coincidence, or if Starship Troopers is a favorite of Anthony Wood?

Gotta go, I have some Roku bugs to kill!

Starship Troopers 1 is awesome. What do you expect from the Director of Total Recall & Robocop.

Starship Troopers 2 was HORRID! It's on Crackle. I rented it when it came out. There guns are just flashlights!

Starship Troopers 3 was alright. It tried. It really did on it's limited budget. It was alright for what it was.

The series I never got around too.

Good point. I'm seeing that a lot lately.
Whenever someone is firing a gun its always a bright white light in the shape of an X
With unlimit ammo.
Why do they always keep shooting up a room when its obvious there isn't anyone in the room ?
Its sad when the old cowboy and war movies of the 50's & 60's had more realistic guns.

If you loved Starship Troopers and don't mind animation, take a look at Roughnecks, which is based on Starship Troopers. Unfortunately, they didn't make it to streaming yet, but I found them a fun watch if you don't mind DVDs from Netflix.

Crap they were all streaming....The series.

First flick used blanks.

Sequel used flashlights.

Third went back to blanks. LOL!

Looks like Netflix has the First & Third flicks.

Crackle has the 2nd & Series.

If you want to watch em all.

Yeah, "Doogie Hoswer S.S." was a decent monster flick.

I keep hoping that someone will adapt Heinlein's book sometime, though. :)


Heh heh! You and me, both! Image

Had to LOL at this one. Robert Heinlein's book was so different the movie was basically apocrypha.

Roughnecks was pretty good though ... still waiting for a stream for that one :) Enjoyed the heck out of the old CGI effects.

F'in'-A, Bubba!

While I don't normally like Heinlein, the novel was a fascinating look at what it means to serve in the military, and a testament to honor, duty and esprit de core.

The movie was an ultra-violent, Fascist mockery.
