The Learning: What Did You?
« on: January 12, 2018, 06:27:36 PM »
I learned that future dystopian movies need no set-up.

That when you live in an apocalyptic environment with frigid temperatures that shirts aren't needed and apparently women will still wear tank-tops outside.

That it's 9:22.

This movie may, or may not, have taken place on a space ship.

Who needs backstory?

I learned that you can basically start setting up the actual plot of the movie over one hour into it (by exposition dump from a glowing CGI energy being).

I learned that aliens recruiting soldiers for their war can improve upon humanity by making them do mock killing drills, strapping them to a whirling machine, and having them drink their... fluids.

I learned that hot chicks constantly sneak into an ultra secure military facility located on the North Pole to have illegal orgies.

I learned that aliens infiltrating humanity quickly acquire a total devotion to historic earth politicians, while simultaneously developing a hatred of specific earth accents.

I learned that a movie can set up a combat-training environment more dangerous than a malfunctioning holodeck early in its runtime only to never make use of it again.

I learned that watching Red Letter Media "Best of the Worst" episodes makes you recognize a David DeCoteau movie even if you've actually never seen one before.

Man, I hope we get a run of David DeCoteau movies.

I learned that a meteor striking the Earth, causing global catastrophe and climate change, does this with lava... somehow.

Sniffing someone's underwear from their gym bag will help you find a picture in a can.

I learned that some bad movies can still surprise me with  a twist that will ncrease the stupidity of the already stupid plot exponentially.

That I was surprisingly entertained by this movie.

I learned that IMDB has this rated as TV-14. This was a TV movie? What station?

I survived the San Diego Comic Con 2010 Hall H stabbing.

I learned that it's possible to make a scene in a military installation that is gayer than the Top Gun volleyball scene.

I learned that shirts are either a reward or a punishment.

I learned that after an apocalyptic meteor strike, which makes most of the Earth into an arctic wasteland, mankind will relocate to the actual Arctic for some reason.

I learned that these were incredibly wussy aliens.  They needed a cataclysmic meteor, 30 years, and a squad of trained guardians before they could make their attack.
I'm not particularly religious, and I don't really like Muppets, but I do love word play.

I learned that in the end, none of what the our hero A.C. Slater did mattered because the entire portal just blew up on its own anyway.

I learned this is the least secure military base in history. People keep breaking in, breaking out, breaking out and then breaking back in.

So the Sargent can bend a gun with his bare hands and no one thinks this is suspicious?

Almost sounds like something I read where a spy agency infiltrated a law enforcement agency, only to eventually learn the law enforcement agency was so easy to infiltrate, that nearly every member of it was a spy for someone else.

BTW, just realized I started reading this at... 9:22. Maybe the movie was wiser in a subtle way than anyone guessed.

I never did learn what the Greek for "I was killed by an IT failure" was.

I learned that they figure out a way to apparently abolish aging. Everyone in this movie looks about 17.
