    Default "Starship Troopers 3..."

    Well, here's a trailer for Starship Troopers 3: Marauder, which I guess will be direct-to-video like Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation. But Casper Van Dien of the first movie will be returning.

    The film will be directed by the writer of the first two films, Edward Neumeier.

    Despite being a direct-to-video release, I actually enjoyed Starship Troopers 2, and Starship Troopers 3 looks to be quite intriguing, too -- in a so-bad-it's-good kind of way, but that's what all the Starship Troopers films were aiming for.

    I'm personally a big fan of the original Starship Troopers. It's a far more intelligent movie than most people give it credit for. I felt it was highly clever, not to mention it had awesome effects and to this day, it has some of the most gorgeous model work ever, created by Sony Pictures Imageworks when they had their miniature shop Thunderstone.

    And it had Doogie Howser in a duster! Can't beat that (except by putting Doogie Howser on drugs and making him hump the car seat).

    Actually I liked Starship Troopers too. It was way cheesy but that kind of added to its charm. It had a self-aware cheesiness sort of like Evil Dead 2 had (although I much prefer ED2).

    The original Starship Troopers was fun, but I thought the sequel was kind of lame. I'll definitely be watching the third one though.

    Favorite thing about the original Starship Troopers was the "Education Segments" that always ended with Do you want to know more?. I can't remember if I saw the second one.

    I don't want it, I just need it, to breathe, to feel, to know I'm alive.

    The second one was directed by effects guru Phil Tippett.

    Wait, there was a Starship Troopers 2?

    And now 3? For the love of God, why?

    I'm assuming the original director has nothing to do with the sequels, a la Robocop?

    The only reason I ever gave the original a second glance was its tantalizing hints (to me at least) of Paul Verhoeven's deliberate creation of antifilms. (Robocop is another classic example.)

    It seemed really clear that Verhoeven wanted to highlight the elements of the original Heinlein story that were exactly what Heinlein took pains to vehemently protest the story was not--a quasi-fascist glorification of warfare as an ideal state of human existence.

    I could really give a shit what happened to the Brain Bug.

    Oh well.

    Huh. I didn't even know there was a 2. Doesn't matter, they wacked Dina Meyer (Redhead O' Much Hotness) in ST so the film all its sequels are on the Excrement List until proper restitution has been paid.

    Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation



    Would you like to know more?

    Starship Troopers 2 doesn't have any of the characters from the first film, but it was still entertaining and the effects were great despite the budget.
