I really do need to see it."Rich if you havent seen Showgirls, you must, tonight. It's a soap opera on amphetamines, and is very, very funny in a very, very wrong way."
But there are pretty blatant displays of humour aren't there? For example the kids stamping on the bugs here"Without a blatant display of humor, it is impossible to create a parody of extremism or fundamentalism that someone won't mistake for the real thing."
But to what extent is that?"personally I think the closest Starship Troopers comes to actual satire is to the same extent Scream was a satire of horror"
Agreed. At least I think I do. As others have said about other things, it's a long time since I've seen it.basic instinct is now weirdly sort of underrated.
total recall is great, but it basically just becomes a standard action shoot em up in the ending. all the subtext vanishes. it does have some of the all time best arnie lines though. and his female co-star is super hot.
