Movie Reviews

All three are guilty pleasures.

"I know I will shock those who read this, and it may insult Heinlein enthusiasts, but I loved all three Starship Troopers films; there I said. Why you may ask? Well I remember when I was younger and I saw the trailer for the first big budget spectacle back in 1997. I was too young to understand the whole point of the movie, but things were blowing up, bugs were being killed; it was essentially an adrenaline rush throughout the entire movie. So, obviously I bought the VHS tape when it came out, and seven years later a sequel came out. A sequel considered so bad that some SST fans are trying to get a petition going to rename the movie. Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation was a low budget (seven million dollars) direct to video release directed by Phil Tippet I believe. The film used recycled footage from the first one and became more of a horror film than an action extravaganza. The film had to have made some money because here we are at No. 3 Starship Troopers 3: Marauder. Shockingly I loved this one just as much as the first! With a budget of only twenty million dollars and with the return of Casper Van Dien as Johny Rico from the first film, I can honestly call this my guilty pleasure trilogy, something to watch when I am either bored or basically just for kicks. Like my dad who is more of a Trekkie (sorry if I miss spelled that) I have become a Troopy or whatever corny nickname they want to coin people who loved the SST movies (I am sure some movie buffs just call us morons for short). Anyway, all three DVDs are loaded with special features on the making of and of course director and actor commentary. (Sadly however some special features on the two-disc special edition of the first film are not on the one in this trilogy). As far as transfers go, the picture and sound quality were good on my A30 HD DVD player. If you hated the sequels, then just stick with the first movie. However if you want to give the third film a chance and want it all in a cool looking box set. then this is for you. In my opinion these films are not nearly as bad as anything you'd see as a Sci-Fi original movie, I loved these films, and I know I am in the minority on that, but then again to each his own I believe the saying is."

"Starship Troopers is a sci-fi/Comedy Classic

Plot- army attacks bugs, bug's fight back, and get smarter

Acting- Casper Van Dien is awesome in this flick

Gore- lots of snapped and ripped bodies, blood splatter, melted bodies, brain eating, severed limbs, impalements, decapitations and a whole bunch more, definatly the goriest killer bug film i have ever watched next to the Fly 1 and 2!

Bottom Line 5 out of 5

Rated R for graphic sci-fi violence, and gore, and for some langauge, and nudity/ Time 129min/ 1997/ Color

Starship Trooper 2 Hero of the Federation is a Sci-fi piece of crap

Plot- no fun, not funny, but kind of freaky

Acting- decent

Gore- a head chopped off with a meat cleaver, a head blown off with a shotgun, disturbing scenes, impalements and more

Bottom Line 1 out of 5

Rated R for violence, sexual content, and brief language/ Time 92min/ 2004/ Color

Starship Troopers 3 Maraduer is a lot better than part 2

Plot- the return of Johnny Rico (Casper Van Dien)

Acting- hello i said casper van dien

Gore- impalements is all that i remember

Bottom Line- 3 out of 5

Rated R for violence, language, and some nudity/ Time 105min/ 2008/ Color
