Sounds like good times. Next time someone leaves a tape of it by a dumpster, I'm on that ****.

Hilarious parody of thinly veiled propaganda war movies, while also a great war movie in its own right. Super entertaining. Instant favorite.
I can't believe you've never seen Starship Troopers. That's nerd 101.

I mean, I'd heard the name before, I'd just never gotten around to checking it out. Always meant to, but there are so many ****ing movies/books/games, you know?

Heinlein movies are fairly parallel to a King movie adaptation, but they really ran with the Troopers franchise. I'm looking forward to catching this one at some point when I have absolutely nothing else to do:



I should probably watch 2, 3, and 4 first though.

Not to mention the most under appreciated CGI kids show ever.

Aw, that was kinda adorable, in a weird sort of way. Pretty much just a bunch of estranged friends, each with their own brand of mid-life crisis, getting together for the funeral of a friend who slashed his wrists in the bathtub, and end up smoking pot, shooting the ****, and realizing just how ****ing boring life can become when you let your sense of fun and friendship slip away.

And lol @ Jeff Goldblum's character being the only one that doesn't get laid.

The dialogue is at least 50% terrible one-liners but everything else is far more solid then you'd expect from a kids show. Almost assuredly why you never heard of it as whoever the hell greenlit all the money and effort they clearly put into the show didn't have enough faith to give it a timeslot worth a damn. I had to wake up at like 5am on weekdays to watch it as a kid. The airing schedule made Firefly look sensible as well. A weird decision as if it had been given a reasonable timeslot or actual marketing it would almost certainly have taken the world by storm.
