{Rebroadcast} Starship Troopers (1997)

EvanEvanHost

**With some renewed interest in Starship Troopers after some very awful X (formerly Twitter) threads, I wanted to rebroadcast this episode which gets into the heart of the matter: This movie is satire.**

Starship Troopers is one of, if not the greatest, the best spoof military films of all time. Paul Verhoeven is the GOAT when it comes to satire, especially military and police related. The mastermind behind Robocop brought the novel to life in a much better way. Verhoeven used the imagery of fascism, the third reich, the United States to show what ongoing militarism looks like if we keep going in that direction.
