Starship Troopers: One of the Most Misunderstood Movies Ever

It amazes me how many people completely miss the point of this movie, as it's hardly subtle, and should've been even expected coming after RoboCop and Total Recall in Paul Verhoeven's oeuvre. It's probably my favourite of his because it's so relentlessly grim and boiling with anger below the surface sheen. Perhaps it presupposes too much knowingness on the part of its audience -- but that's really more the viewers' deficiency, not Verhoeven's. #link
