Starship Troopers

Well I guess it’s time for the internal Starship Troopers review.

I want to say a few things, and mostly to reply to some of the reviews that I have heard. Now we know that the effects are amazing. All of them. I was so very pleased with the space ship stuff. The whole thing looked great. I have seen it about three times and every time I want to scrutinize our work I am too wrapped up in the movie.

No I want to talk about the live action stuff. The biggest comment that I have heard is how bad the acting was. I thought it was going to be a hell of a lot worse. But to my surprise I felt kinda bad when some of those people were getting ripped into shreds. So I say good job. I’ve heard the acting was bad and they were too hansome and blah, blah, blah. Now maybe I am crazy. And we all know that I’m not that smart. But Wasn’t that a science fiction movie? I mean, all these poeple complaining about the acting, where have they been for the last thirty years. When was the last time you went to a Science fiction movie and were mad about the acting? I mean. where in Independence Day did any one say ” Boy that guy from taxi really, made me cry, with his scruffy face,” Or “when he flew that plane into the ship and won the day for the human race I couldn’t look at my girlfriend cause I had tears in my eyes.” Infact What brand name actor has delivered a great performance in the last ten years? Did Stallone give out an award winning performance in Judge Dredd. Or how much did the actors get paid for the new Batman movie? ” Wow when mister freeze was sad cause his wife was all frozen.’ and I couldn’t believe the turmoil between Batman and Robin when they were fighting over the red headed vine girl.” I never heard any bad reviews on those great acting jobs. I think I would be a little more upset if I paid George Kloony twenty million and my batman just looked down and wobbled his head when he spoke. Ok Blade Runner good acting. Alien. good acting. The fith Element…..uh..what the fuck was that. So what is the deal. I need to know who out there has been so swayed by these fantastic roles that they all of a sudden got upset that Jonny Rico’s character wasn’t as good as the mad docter in Back To the Future. Has any actor taken an acadamy award in any science fiction film ever?

Maybe we should make a film about two people who really like each other and then they go across the country in search of themseleves but they cry alot cause they want to tell each other but then they are afraid to, so they grow spiritualy very much and that also makes them cry and in the end, they save a dying dog who is also crying and maybe then Siskle and chubby Ebert would cry too and like that movie very much.
