Hell is Officially frozen: Battlefield earth 2 somehow got a green light.

— Posted by John Campea

Whoa whoa, stop the horses….. Someone just lost their job.

I’m sure, any day now, whoever is in charge and has been taking a vacation so he can cheat on his wife, will return to find that the intern he left in his stead has been tricked by the devil into greenlighting “Battlefield Earth 2” into existence. Seriously, how the #@%$ does crap like this happen?

Folks, if you’ve never seen the first one, then you’re..well… you’re missing nothing except for perhaps the grandest barf circus to grace a cinema this side of the Baby Boomers. And now, we get to extend the trip of pain with “Battlefield Earth 2: The End Begins.” – Which, as you can probably guess, is a prequel.

Since L. Ron Hubbard, captain of the starship Enter-wacky, pretty much ended the war in the original, the second one is apparently a look into the “original” battle that happened 1000 years earlier – so a great battle it must be – if we weren’t told in the first movie that the war lasted 9 minutes. — So unless Battlefield Earth 2 is 10 minutes long, it’s sucking already.

I have no idea who’s supposed to actually be IN this, or who WOULD be in this, but count me out. So far, it’s being helmed by some guy I’ve never heard of which is probably just as well, since you won’t hear of him after the fact either.

    i think if you compare it with the book ( sorry but my english is not that goood) its not good. But thats with nearly every book you put into movie. the movie was good. and nobody could act better in an evil role than JT. I think the second part is goona be fantastic, lets see.

    what are ya’ll talking about? it was a great movie, and i enjoyed it alot. you should give the popular “john travolta” the chance he’s asking for. he has done many great films and if he says it will be good, i’ll watch it. the movie was good unless your standing next to it with your science book saying “no that cant happen!” thats why its science fiction! open your mind alittle. im glad they’re doing a second movie.

    Maybe up and coming actor “Sloof Lirpa” should be in it.

    He was slated to be in “Speed 3,” “Rancid Cat Food: The Movie,” and “The Sharks I’ve Jumped: The Ted McGinley story.” All three were to debut on UPN or PAX last year, but were unjustly shelved.
