Alien Outpost

In 2033, a documentary crew is sent to film the actions of the soldiers of Outpost 37 in this science fiction military film. Featuring interviews with the soldiers in an attempt to provide some characterization and a script that consists primarily of the words "Hey!" and "Let's go!", Alien Outpost tries to draw comparisons to our present day military actions through the metaphor of alien invasion, and it's reminiscent of Starship Troopers, which I also hated, but at least Starship Troopers had Neil Patrick Harris dressed up as a quasi-space nazi and sudsy co-ed space showers. However, I did like one moment where a soldier was sent out on the battlefield to pick up gooey, dismembered body parts, which caused me to unintentionally LOL. Unfortunately, Alien Outpost drags whenever something isn't blowing up.
