Our final Nerdverse event of the semester, or at least the last one at uni on a saturday, and we’re going to kick it off with an Emergency General Meeting, or EGM, before watching Starship Troopers, Demolition Man and V for Vendetta.
– The EGM will start promptly at 3, or as soon as we meet quorum after 3, and only paid members count and can vote, so please show up on time/early to help us get started asap. The primary purpose of the EGM is to replace our esteemed Master of Coin, Nina, who is leaving us for a semester in America, but if you have any other motions then you can raise them either at the EGM or to someone on the committee beforehand.
– Starship Troopers is an action film set in a parody fascist future where a group of high school students join the military in a fight against some sort of alien threat that supposedly threatens life on Earth
– Demolition Man stars Sylvester Stallone as a cop frozen in 1996 and brought forward to the far off future of 2032 where violence is a thing of the past, and put to the task to stop fellow 90’s kid Wesley Snipes from his murderous rampage. Will we also finally work out how to use the three seashells?
– Following world war, London is a police state occupied by a fascist government, and a vigilante known only as V (Hugo Weaving) uses terrorist tactics to fight the oppressors of the world in which he now lives. When V saves a young woman named Evey (Natalie Portman) from the secret police, he discovers an ally in his fight against England’s oppressors. This film also started that whole thing with the guy fawkes masks that was popular in the early 2010’s, for stuff like anonymous
