Seeing this movie again inspired me to start work on an article for general consumption titled "Battlefield Earth: A Tea Party Perspective."

Senator Dog has a lot of friends and a talent for holding grudges.

I would actually prefer to watch this movie any day over Drive Angry again. Everything in Battlefield Earth makes me think the camera work was done by a guy who used to be a voyeur and placed cameras in places you wouldn't think to look and always obscured his view.

That's why they call it a Dutch angle.

of course man-animals are useless for manual labor! Use a man for that! Use a man-animal for man-animalual labor.

also, is that Psychlo-Jason Mewes at 1:30?

Glad Forest Whitaker managed to bounce back from this role.

Interview with Forest Whitaker from February, 2000 (before the movie came out):
http://movies.ign.com/articles/034/034739p1.html

"It's very dark in some ways as a sci-fi movie," Whitaker says. "It's also really funny because in some ways we're so villainous that it becomes humorous - I mean, we're just so ridiculously evil that it's like a joke. If it was going to be compared to something, it would be sort of like 'Planet Of The Apes'."


Whitaker says that the 'Pulp Fiction' star compares 'Battlefield Earth' to, well, 'Pulp Fiction'. "John describes it as, like, 'Pulp Fiction' for the year 3000," Whitaker explains. "It's the way he sees the movie and I understand what he means. The aliens are extremely cool, you know, evil - we don't like people but we got our own style and we have no problem destroying other things, and those two characters in 'Pulp Fiction' have similar sensibilities."

Because the 2 main characters I guess are black and white? Beyond that, I think Whitaker is just bullshitting his way through this like the Star Wars prequel actors did in interviews only Whitaker is tied to the church that funded this so I'm sure his opinion of this movie is still high. Do you think Kirk Cameron has ever said anything he's done related to God has been terrible? If he has, please link me.

Oh, of course he's just talking the movie up to help the box office release, but that's why I posted the link and quote. It's beautiful and painful at the same time.

Rudy
i think Terl is a pretty cool psyclo. eh kills man-animals doesnt afraid of anything

memedumpster
This is the part of the movie where it's explained how the humans could somehow nuke their home planet.
oddeye
How did they conquer anything if radiation makes them explode?

hammsangwich
Duh, because radiation only exists in old buried nuclear warheads on future Earth. It's not like it's just flowing through space at all times!
