«THAT FUCKED UP MY EARS BRO!!!»
Paul Verhoeven's sci-fi satire hit theaters 20 years ago today. Paul Verhoeven spent his Hollywood years making florid, violent, sexy movies, all R-rated except for that one lap-dancing NC number. RoboCop , Total Recall , Basic Instinct , Showgirls , Starship Troopers , Hollow Man : These were steadily bigger-budgeted Hollywood products, with big-time movie stars and then later with the expensive digital effects that were already replacing movie stars. No subtweets intended; throwing self under the bus now. Sure, RoboCop needs to be watched just once as a completely sincere Christ story, with all the blood-bucket gore of an old-school Passion play. Galilee in the gutter:.
Maisie Williams. Age: 31. You will not be disappointed! I am greedy for sex, wild and unstoppable. My energy will drive you crazy. I will moan, squirm and make me want my body more and more. Dive with me in the sea of debauchery and lust. Be my bad boy and I will be your bad girl. I will squeeze you to the last drop, but even then I will hardly calm down. I will dress as you wish, I like stockings and heels.
The Shower Scene Is the Most Important Part of ‘Starship Troopers,’ And Not For The Obvious Reasons

What's really being discussed in the shower scene from "Starship Troopers? Welcome to That One Scene , a semi-regular series in which Marine veteran and pop culture omnivore James Clark waxes nostalgic about that one scene from a beloved movie. In the span of a two soapy minutes, the infamous shower scene from Starship Troopers gave us a glossy, vivid 90s-style depiction of men and women in an infantry unit living, training, eating, sleeping, and yes, bathing together. The moment is playful, flirty and yet transgressively light.
Rebecca Ferguson. Age: 26. Your fantasies will become reality with me and only with me! I am a sincere, direct and insanely liberated girl.
It might seem like a blatant excuse to get the cast naked, but Starship Troopers ' shower scene is subversive for a couple of reasons. Dutch auteur Paul Verhoeven's first American movie was RoboCop , which became an instant sci-fi classic. It offered all the action and special effects audiences in could ask for, but the film's creative satire, themes of humanity versus technology and Verhoeven making the title character an "American Jesus" are some of the reasons it's so fondly remembered. Verhoeven's s work wasn't shy when it came to explicit violence or sex, but films like Total Recall also explored rich themes too. It's packed with bloody action and CGI that has held up surprisingly well, but it was a box-office disappointment.
