Newly-developed military nano-technology is stolen by terrorists in a plot to take over the world, and only a super-elite team chosen from the international best can stop them.
This movie is another example of both an astonishingly wide gap between its original audience and current audience, and a needless unimagination in original movie universe-building authorship.
- Properly titled G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra
- Based on the G.I. Joe toy / cartoon franchise.
- In association with Hasbro.
Continues with G.I. Joe - Retaliation - (2013 movie).
I'll take proper notes when I re-watch this.
A documentary following soldiers fighting the aliens left over from an invasion.
I rather liked this! People talk about this being low budget, but until it's pointed out I doubt someone would really notice.
aka Alien Outpost
A dude goes places and does things, looking for some stuff I think. There are explosions and is smoking.
Noted here just for one of those "oh, I've seen that" references.
I don't recall particularly liking or disliking it.
During the Invasion of Normandy
During World War II, a lucky Soviet soldier is fictionalized into a hero, but he truly earns that distinction only to find himself up against the German's very best.
With a good pace and atmosphere, this movie is riveting.
Based on Enemy at the Gates: The Battle for Stalingrad (1973 book), by William Craig

A mercenary group is sent to an island for training exercises, only to learn that it was being used to train military robots.
Although pretty stiff because of the lead character, this is a decent enough movie. Worth watching for science fiction fans, but not for military movie fans.
Released 2016-05-16 in the UK
The war with the bugs rages on, with humanity starting to lose, but something about god and wining and things.
This started off as a great or at lease decent tv-movie, but its "wrap up" took enough of a nosedive to spoil it. It has a much higher budget and is generally better than part two, but.. that ending, man. That ending. This is still worth a once-watch for fans of the original.
- Properly titled Starship Troopers 3: Marauder
Soldiers flee an unwinnable battle, but find themselves trapped in a bunker surrounded by an enemy desperate to get in.
Recommended for fans of the original who can tolerate less character development, story and budget. It's definitely not bad.
- Properly titled Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation
- Followed by TODO
The sequel to Starship Troopers - (1997 movie)
Aliens are sending spores to colonize Earth, but when humans send a retaliatory force to their homeworld they learn the bugs are a far more dangerous foe than anticipated.
It's a largely flawless movie. Amazing fun for what it is, which is the sort of military movie where only one soldier runs out of ammo once in the entire movie.
- Followed by Starship Troopers 2 - Hero of the Federation (2004)
See also Roughnecks - Starship Troopers Chronicles - (1999 series)[doesn't exist], the animated series which is based on the book and this movie.
Baton Rouge, Louisiana is ground zero for a zombification-virus.
While not great, it could have done a whole lot worse. Navy Seals vs. Zombies is probably worth a watch for zombie and military fans, if there's nothing better around.
I didn't get through it. It had nothing interesting to offer me.
