Starship Troopers

Scott Tobias for the A.V. Club:

The line between the world of Starship Troopers and Sarah Palin’s Twitter feed gets thinner every day.

In 1997, one of my favorite novels was transformed into quite the odd movie. Despite rewatching it with an alarming frequency, I still do not know what to think of Paul Verhoeven’s Starship Troopers. It is not the novel, but it does not try to be – Scott does a good job of exploring what it may have been attempting. The volumes that have been written on this movie would make for quite the interesting library, but Scott’s article is worth checking out.

But, as always, do not read the comments.
