Before we begin, this is a discussion on the novel Starship Troopers and not the movie by the same name. While the movie is a fantastic one, the book is decidedly different. When the movie came out in 1997, I had just gotten out of a 6 year stint in the Army and was attempting […]
Look, I freely admit it. I love Tom Cruise. His movies do something for me most of the time. Whether he is a secret agent or a regular guy, I like his movies. (Except for Rock of Ages. I did not like that one.) So of course I am going to see Edge of Tomorrow the […]

Catching up on some sci-fi movies I had missed first time around, I came across The Darkest Hour, a Russian-American alien invasion offering that was originally released Christmas of 2011.
