Live Blogging Dennis Hopper’s Space Truckers (1996)

Inspired by the Dennis Hopper list I already mentioned for Topless Robot, I just had to watch all of Space Truckers. It’s definitely ridiculous and (I’m hoping) tongue-in-cheek, but worth a look, especially if you’re drinking with your buddies.

*30 seconds in and the effects are already more convincing than Spirit.

*Pretty good killer robot attack scene.

*”You astonish me.” [Heh, I have NO idea what this refers to.]

*Ooh, double cross.

*It really is a space truck, looks like a Transformer.

*Zero grav mustarad and hot dog, that’s goofy but a great way to apply condiments.

*Hauling Square Pigs.

*The space truck chair looks like an amusement park ride.

*Magnetic floor, extra arms, they really had fun with this. He looks like Doc Ock.

*Yup, those are square-ass pigs, probably have space pig flu.

*”That’s not how you throw a punch in zero gravity, this is the recommended technique.”

*Stephen Dorf and Debbi Mazar (Empire Records!!!!)

*Even with all these space effects, they can’t make it look like George Wendt is punching Hopper

*Space bar brawl!

*Bathroom lady robot secret passage – crazy.

*Anti grav lingerie!

*His computer sounds like annie potts

*”It’s black rock!” – Lost tie-in!!!

*Zero g strip “tease” – looks ridiculous.

*Boarded by pirates.

*”Is he talking about my dick?”

*”Is this your dick?” “No.” “That one’s mine.” – weird.

*Woah, this guy’s a crazy cyborg with a cyborg butt, he looks kind of like Metallo.

*Haha, pull cord penis like lawn mower.

*Everyone on the crew is gonna bone Debbi? Ew.

*They’re spending a LOT of time being captured.

*The killer robot is a dick! and he looks kinda like ROM.

*How are there 30 minutes left? I’m already sleepy-drunk.

*The robot activation scene actually looks pretty cool.

*His plan is to actually crash the truck full of killer robots onto planet Earth hoping the reentry will fry them? Not a great plan Dennis.

*Oh okay, he could parachute to safety, no worries.

*And the president of the world is…an old guy? It seemed like they were making a big deal of him, but I don’t recognize the guy.
