Well, having watched Jurassic Park III last night, I'd rate it as better than Jurassic Park II but not as good as the original Jurassic Park (once you'd got over the longuers of the first half hour or so).

Starship Troopers 2 - um - er - do I HAVE to actually give points?

Well - if i do - then it's a 1/10

If I'm allowed - then 0/10

At least I have a nice new shiny coaster (a red one too)

I've heard negative opinions of it, but....Is it really that bad?!

I nearly bought it, as I love the first one. Glad I didn't, now.

It didn't even have the same cast, did it? Different director too I think, rather than Verhoeven.

If only they had made a sequel properly.

It does have a couple of interesting ideas.

Different cast (set 5yrs after the end of the first film) and a different director too (the director is the special effects bloke that did the first film tho - so the bugs look the same)

Definately - I think the only sequel I really liked more than the first one was aliens.

Yes - in fact I think I'll put in on now and imagine I never saw the other one at all :D

The sequel???

If only they'd made the damn first one properly!!

"Let's send a bunch of troops down to a hostile planet with no air support or armour or heavy weapons backup..."

"Oh look, someone's just done a flash manoeuvre with a space ship that could have damaged the ship and the station, phew, we're so glad she got away with it that we're not going to rip her a new a$$hole..."

"Hey, we're highly trained soldiers walking down a narrow valley with no scouts out, nobody on the high ground and, oh, look, falling rocks, let's not worry about them..."

etc etc etc :banghead:

"Dude, where's my car?" was as stupid as they come, but bloody brilliant, I thought. It is one of those movies that you would love for its abstract originality, or hate for being so dumb.

I was going to say a bit about the sequel, but anyone know what the deal with that is? Details are very sketchy. All say it is coming out in 2004, one even said US date is in July. But not many sites mention it, and IMDB isn't even carrying it (even though it carries movies in production for the next 3 years). Hmmm/. If anyone is interested, it is called: "Seriously Dude, Where's My Car?"

Out of Time - On DVD. Denzil Washington who's a pretty good bet for a film being good, and the guy who plays the alien doctor in Startrek:Enterprise plays the Medical Examiner in it. He plays a good part, v.funny at times. 8/10

Hmmm, Iâ₠™m guessing that you didnâ₠¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t exactly enjoy Starship Troopers then? :p:

We watched †˜From Hellâ₠¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ on Sky last night †“ not bad, with a few interesting ideas on the Jack the Ripper story, and Johnny Depp doing his now famous stoned Englishman act. I think it was worth a 7 / 10

The Core (DVD)

Maybe a 7 out of 10.


Silly, but enjoyable, disaster movie. Kind of like Armageddon, but inside the Earth instead of in outer space.
