Starship Troopers (1997)

We want you, to watch more Paul Verhoeven movies! So, I feel like this movie is a hidden gem. It’s like a war film not incredibly unlike Saving Private Ryan (just way less emotional scenes) mixed with some excellent Sci-Fi. Casper Van Dien does ok, he’s not my favorite character but he does a good job as the ex-football player now elite soldier. He’s incredibly lucky as both Denise Richards and Dina Meyer are fighting over him for his affections. Neil Patrick Harris is one of the coolest psychics ever… plus, this movie has a Busey in it, Jake of course, but still… a Busey. That’s a win folks. Verhoeven makes some very fun films, this doesn’t take itself too seriously and that’s why I like it. This was also up for an Oscar, but lost to some obscure movie called Titanic. Watch this if you love Science Fiction that doesn’t take itself too seriously, because I had a great time!

89/100
