Battlefield Earth: A Saga of the Year 3000 (2000) (part 4 of 10)
Would any of you be surprised if I told you we leave the bar with yet another center wipe? Nah, didn’t think so.
The screen’s trousers are ripped down the middle to reveal an abandoned zoo, with some wobbly-looking Psychlos stationed out front. It turns out the Psychlos are keeping humans here. Because they’re just “man-animals”, get it?
Inside the zoo, a scruffy-looking Psychlo seems to be shooting green cookie dough out of a hose. I knew it! Those bastards are trying to win the Pillsbury Bake-Off!
[Editor’s Note: On the commentary, it’s revealed that the goopy stuff is actually a mixture of peas, potatoes and spring greens. Mmm… baby food. —Jet]
[Editor’s Note: Actually, it looks more like what would happen if someone decided to stuff a frog in a blender. Kermit puree, anyone? —Ed]
But before we get to see the delicious results of this, the camera swoops upward in a vain attempt to make any of this look cool. There are even random inserts of people in cages to sweeten the deal, and evidently, in the future, prisons will hold both men and women. I have absolutely no problem with that.
