Starship Troopers CGI


Tonight was spent watching Starship Troopers, with the lovely Denise Richards, Casper Van Dien, Dina Meyer and a bunch of others (who cares hey?). Why I hear you scream, well I got bored of the program that was on about Hiroshima…

Just to clear that opening sentence up a bit, Denise Richards plays one of the main parts in the film, I didn’t mean that I was watching it with her. That would have been ace, but unlikely, unless she is reading this and would like to sort something out?

One thing which interested me was a comment from someone I was watching it with, they said that the CGI was terrible and having not seen the film before assumed that it had been carried on the strength of its CGI in the past rather than the story. I actually think the CGI is pretty impressive, the Spaceships are damn cool, and the Insects are pretty advanced. Especially the landscape scenes where there are thousands of Insects attacking all with separate motion patterns.

More importantly, back to Denise Richards, I looked up her IMDB earlier, and apparently has a film out late last year called ‘Deep In The Valley’. Now on hearing this you assume Welsh Porno, which doesn’t appear to be too far off the mark. Denise plays someone called Autumn Bliss, pornstar much? Off to Blockbusters I think…


Melbourne Day 2 – Watchmen


Similar start, breakfast then work…

In the evening I decided that Watchmen at the Melbourne Imax was a good idea, and I was right. It was a great idea! Shame there is no Imax experience footage for the film but the awesome screen made it worth it. I wont start posting spoilers for those that haven’t seen it don’t worry.

No dinner again… getting even weirder!


Helena Bonham Carter


Simply put Helena Bonham Carter seems to get a very strange range of roles. In the very late Nineties she played Marla Singer in Fight Club, a suicidal messed up character who has no value to her life.

Since then she has hooked up with Tim Burton and worked on nearly all of his newer productions (usually along with Johnny Depp). Corpse Bride:

Sweeney Todd:

Not forgetting Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Alice in Wonderland which is currently filming.

There is a definite link here with the dark films and then Tim Burton’s dark style to everything he does. What is strange to me is her casting in kids films / programs, like Wallace and Gromit Curse of the Were-Rabbit:

Lots of Harry Potter action too… all in all we love you!
