On this week’s episode, I’m carrying on with It’s All Connected Part 3! If you want to see where I went after the first and second episodes, you’re in luck! This latest batch finishes up my Mike Flanagan run, digs into the wild world of Stephen King adaptations and takes a few tangents in all the best ways!
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.
