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 big ass afrrican lady pussey that one lap-dancing NC number. RoboCopTotal RecallBasic InstinctShowgirlsStarship TroopersHollow 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 Starship troopers black girl nude story, starship troopers black girl nude all the blood-bucket gore of an old-school Passion play. Galilee in the gutter:. Total Recall lives in memory as the progenitor of late-millennium dream theory — he never left that brain chair, man!

But like all fan-theory dream explanations, that feels too limiting, too inhuman. Basic Instinct could be reviled by a hundred ideologies, not least because Sharon Stone seems to willfully personify a hundred paranoid nightmares mediocre men have about powerful women.

One of the more good-humoredly fascistic scenes in Starship Troopers is the coed shower scene. From the director of Showgirls and Basic Instinctit vibed transgressive. The rumor was that Verhoven had been naked behind the camera while his cast was naked up front, a fact confirmed by Verhoeven himself in a interview with Empire.

The shower scene arrives early in the movie, after apparent lead character Johnny Rico Caspar Van Dien has joined up with the Mobile Infantry, the sci-fi army that fires cool future weapons and does awesome space stuff. All that military drapery makes you doubt that anything was peaceful, though. You start to wonder: Are Johnny and his friends growing up in some long-established totalitarian uber-regime?

This is the stuff of dark-future terror, but part of the fun of Starship Troopers is how Verhoeven keeps recoding our perspective. The upper-level government spooks wear uniforms that recall the SS, but the different branches of the military have no-bull gender equity Space Captain Brenda Strong!!! Actually, the most immediately despicable soldier is Jake Busey, a white dude so white-dude-ly that he was in Shasta McNasty.

Team chatterbox Kitten Matt Levin walks into the group shower, clearly the sarcastic one. He goes around the horn, asking his squadmates what led them to sign up. A farmboy wanted off the farm. A dude smart enough to get into Harvard needs scholarship money. You need a license to have babies? Running for political office requires some starship troopers black girl nude in the armed forces?

Both films reflect the ever-lingering influence of Top Gunwhich mixed the vaguest Cold War propaganda with the most sanitized starship troopers black girl nude of the MTV style and helped to redefine patriotism as a swagger-y performance of action hero coolness. The enemy MIGs in Top Gun are precisely as nefarious and vague as the bugs in Starship Troopers, and both pairs of uniformed good guys receive their missions like dutiful, unquestioning gamers anxious for the next level to begin.

Got it, cue the music. An insect race from across the galaxy with no apparent spacefaring ability fired a meteor through a wormhole at Buenos Aires? Sure thing, boss, that sounds plausible. Weirdly, though, nothing in the Starship Troopers coed shower scene is half as sexy as the volleyball scene from Top Gun.

In that same great Empire interview, Verhoeven said that the weird nonchalance of the scene was part of the subtext. It is sublimated because they are fascists. But so weirdly, the coed shower scene is the most human moment starship troopers black girl nude Starship Troopers.

Someone wants to go to Harvard, someone wants to make a difference in politics, somebody wants to crank out dem babies, and somebody just hates farming. The best joke in Starship Troopers is that the hero is kind of a dumbo.

Jobs, higher education, parenthood: That all fades away. The film assumes a familiar propagandistic tactic where anyone with yearnings beyond the heroic-governmental-militaristic dies hard and bloody. Johnny has no dreams, so he is an ideal citizen. All that matters is he can kill bugs good. Save FB Tweet ellipsis More. Image zoom. Everett Collection. Starship Troopers.
