Starship Troopers Might Be A Movie Everyone Needs To See Before They Die



You know how everyone watches certain movies throughout school. I believe they're classified as "must-sees" or "necessary" films. Movies like, "Glory", "To Kill a Mockingbird", and "Schindler's List" fit the bill pretty good, but I think we should add one more movie to the mix...

Starship Troopers. Yup. That movie about giant bugs terrorizing a fake planet with Neil Patrick Harris in a supporting scientist role. Hear me out here. I know this movie doesn't have the social impact of the previous movies I listed, but this movie is just straight up awesome. Just a ton of unexplained shit about how the Earth moved to Costa Rica and then Costa Rica was essentially blown up by bugs. Earth is pissed and wages war on the bugs. There's the plot. Nothing more, nothing less.

Let me tell ya, the film is needlessly gory. Ineffective soldiers are getting chopped in half at a pretty vicious clip and a couple decapitations are tossed in as well. That may create a couple issues with the whole "watch in school" thing, plus the exposure of boobs may cause an additional snafu or two. Sidenote: those were easily some of the first boobs most of us have ever seen--transcendent indeed. Taught everyone about class systems, futuristic weaponry, and the ability to defeat and enslave a bug race. Basically all the tools you need post-graduation.

I feel like this movie was like career quicksand, with Neil Patrick Harris being the only survivor.
