Troopers 2 gave us the control bugs and that badass hero track that I will forever love!  :laugh:

I remember finding Starship Troopers 2 in the shops. I was naïve back then, and couldn't understand why I'd never heard of it.

Then I watched it, and complete understood why I'd never heard of it.

I especially laughed/cried at the "guns" that were just plastic blocks with flashbulbs in the end.

It's called "innovation" and doing "the most with what you've got".  :laugh: Yeah, objectively it's terrible. But I can't help but love all the Troopers films.

The ideas throughout are actually pretty good. It's the execution I can't abide :P

Sacrilege! I enjoy all the Trooper films, even the bad ones.  :P And none are on the unwatchable level of Requiem!

With a fraction of the budget, I couldn't believe how much I was enjoying Starship Troopers 3: Marauder. I was like yeah!! They recaptured the spirit of the first film!

Then, unfortunately, it was the last 20 minutes or so that suddenly drove me to drink.  :-\

Ya know if you change the brightness on AVPR and can actually see the thing Wolf ALMOST redeems some of the movie's worse scenes, like he's great, closest thing to an elder I think we will ever see on screen. Of course there is some really stupid stuff like the pregnant woman and predalien makeout scene, but overall I enjoy AVPR when I can see it.

Alien Ressurection makes me question why the Alien series ever continued after 3

I don't get the adoration for Wolf.

He looked great (especially compared to the previous film's Predators) but he was only "cool" because the script made every Alien he faced into a moron that completely forgot how to fight as soon as he grabbed them to strike a silly pose.

He also totally f**ked up his job of containing the Alien outbreak because he was too busy skinning cops in the woods for no reason. Come on, dude, are you there to cover this mess up or leave skinned cadavers hanging around for everyone to see?

Oh the writing is bad lol, nothing makes sense and the xenos are idiots, but the implication of wolf is kinda what I think we all like about him. He sits on a throne overlooking a yautja settlement, he owns like 10 different biomasks all filled with blooded markings. His own helmet has more runes carved into it than the pyramids of AVP, he's got a weapons rack of which he chooses his favorites of like 20. And perhaps most importantly something that only recently occurred to me, of all the people on yautja prime they could have called... they call wolf. Like the hype behind this guy, even his face tells a tale. I think that's why we all like him, he's very much hyped as the end all be all of predators

I think wolf sometimes gets a free pass because he looked and acted (physically if not logicially) more like the Predators of the original two films. The original AVP was just too drastic with its changes and the bulkier look never really worked.
