Looking forward to more but don't know where to start.
I finished the time machine a few days ago. Before starship troopers was 20000 leagues under the sea. Kicking around getting atlas shrugged.
I can't bring myself to forgive Verhoeven for what he did to Starship Troopers
, in putting it on the screen.
I am inclined to think that his CGI version - "Roughnecks: The Starship Trooper Chronicles" may be an attempt at apologia: it's an expansion on the story, still with some changes, but closer (philosophically) to the novel. That's why I can't quite
forgive him - instead of just condemning him outright.
The sole redeeming point of Verhoven's movie was Dina Meyer topless, I think.
