"robocop - brilliant
total recall - awesome
but starship troopers is fucking garbage."
Robocop - 1987
Total Recall - 1990
Starship Troopers - 1997
I'm not necessarily going to disagree with you, but do you think perhaps that the age you were when those movies came out coloured your opinion? I went back and watched Robocop recently, and sure it's great fun, and relatively clever satire, but I don't see how it's heads about Starship Troopers. All of these movies are fun (and gory) action movies, not particularly well acted, and feature some kind of pretty blatant social commentary.
Maybe the social commentary is just too damn obvious the older we get?
