…Starship Troopers II is even worse than the first one.

which is a shame, because Heinlein’s original Starship Troopers _book_ was freaking awesome. It was written in 1959, and was waaaaay ahead of its time wrt the technology etc… Gesture-based human/computer interfaces. HUDs. Positional tracking built into a helmet, ala the Alien ping rangefinder. Written at a time when “real” computers filled warehouses.
I don’t remember Heinlein penning a “Starship Troopers II” novel… Oh, but there are all of those pulp novels based on Troopers. That’s probably where the movies came from.
“Worse”? Clearly, you didn’t go into the first one thinking, “I want to see me Doogie Houser’s guest appearance in Beverly Hills 90210, in a space ship!”
Because if you had, you’d been set.
Whoa whoa whoa. There’s a second one?
Does it have naked boobs in it like the first!?
no one ever leaves me comments anymore.
…actually, plenty of people send me comments. I just don’t go in and verify the comments, then fix my blog to display them… 🙂
I didn’t like how the first film had starships with lightspeed drives and foot soldiers with what seemed 1970s technology. My understanding is the guy who did the special effects for the first movie directed the second movie. He should stick to making bugs crawl. Hmmm. Pretty sure there was a lot less boob-age. Don’t know for sure ’cause I couldn’t actually finish watching the second.
Heya Chuck. I checked out the IMDB and, as it stands, Paul Tippet did, in fact, do the visuals for the first film. I find his lack of boobs in his film disturbing, though.
In a race with the present to keep up with my past
