that movie !
It's actually a really well-written, fun film that knows exactly what it's doing.
but it's still got some SHOCKINGLY schmalzy Americana bits in it...
You gotta love the bit where kids are stamping on cockroaches and their mums are laughing with delight. Never fails.
Some part are intentionally disturbing.
I so hope I'll be able to see the new Verhoeven movie before it gets off the screens...
Best Verhoeven film for ages. It's like 'Allo, 'Allo with lashings of violence and sex.
surpassed only by the sequels.
(yeah yeah, but he's connected by association to Denise, innhe...)
they really should've been better armed and armoured.
true. This bit is the best though, when they're in the crappy little plastic-looking fort!
Man, I remember getting into see this film at the cinema when I was 14 and it was classified 18. BEST NIGHT EVER!
when i was about 10
A good starting point, i think :D
you turned out the way you did :D
from that point onwards, it all went downhill
The bugs got him.
And there is one giant mother funkin rawkin nasty bug... who just killed the second love interest.
take that as a no.
film about a hundred times. I can recite it if you want.
"Come on you apes, you wanna live forever?"
"I've only got one rule - everyone fights, no one quits. You don't do your job, I'll shoot you"
"Frankly I find the idea of a bug that think ofen-sive"
What's a medic going to do? He's had his head blown off!
even if the book has quasi-fascistic overtones, it's still better than the film.
you can remove the word 'has' and replace is with 'is' and lose the word 'quasi' and 'overtones'.
still a good book. what does that say about me I wonder? slightly worrying. oh well.
you think we should BEFRIEND the bugs? give them gifts of parlay?
screw that. STOMP STOMP STOMP
I'm from Buenos Aires, and I say
KILL EM ALL!
one of the best satirical films EVER. along with josie and the pussycats. NO LIE.
that is all.
it's not like they're denise richards, is it?
and I stand by my statement
she is pretty horrible.
but.. swimming pool, neve campbell etc. YUNNO.
where she's in that white top and I gets all wet.
I try to be a sensitive soul, but damn it, being a man conspires against me.
leave her be.
if she took off her top and there was 2 Denise Richards hanging down
version of scuzzlebutt from south park!
