Starship troopers 3, buy? rent? or Downl... er you know?

I would buy it if it was worth seeing, I would like to support Jolene Blalock, but if it's a steaming pile of horse manure maybe i should watch it some other way.

What do you think

I'd choose "other way".

And save for Casper's almost nude scene, even that is a waste of bandwidth.

Buy ? Dear god no...

I would hesitate adding it to my collection even if they were giving it to me for free.

It was an awful movie, not really worse than ST2 but that's not saying much.

Re: Starship troopers 3, buy? rent? or Downl... er you know?

It really depends on how big a Troopers fan you are. I bought it at too high a price, and I thought it was okay.

The FX were so-so, regarding the bugs-I actually thought the creature effects in ST2 were better-even though ST3 has a much bigger budget, or appears to be that way.

It was great to see Van Dien again, and ST3 had more of a feature film feel. That being said, I think they were ham-handed in how they tried to inject religion into the film, and the characterization/acting were so-so. To my recollection, there was no Jolene Blalock nudity either. Bummer.

I would go with rent it. But if you are a real ST3 fan and got to have it, wait to it goes on sale or buy one of the trilogy packs if you don't own the other two movies.

It was OK, I was mildly surprised, but i think you may have buyer's remorse if you pay more than $6.00 for it.

It was shite, but then what would one expect? The "Marauders" were a total wast of creative energy, they didn't really do anything despite all the build-up.

Listen to the man/woman. It was awful. I can't even decide what was the worst part of it. There was so freaking much to choose from.

I have to say I was pretty pleased with it. The end was a rushed and the mauraders should have had more time to play. But other than that, it was a worthy sequel for the most part..

I'll hesitantly agree that the bugs looked better in Pt. II, but I think they saved on FX by keeping the story focused to one location rather than lots of other set pieces like they have in Pt. III.. So with the money the saved on location, they were able to pump more into the CGI..

I bought it so I could have the set.. Not regretting it..
