Starship Troopers - "They Sucked his Brains Out!"

It's official, I am a Paul Verhoeven nuthugger. I don't know what it is, maybe it's the amount of extreme violence in his movies or the fact that he has directed two of my all-time favorite action films ever, Robocop and Total Recall. This guy was the first nominee ever to actually show up at the Razzie Awards, when he personally accepted his Worst Director "award" for Showgirls. Now that's class.
Paul also directed the CGI movie death extravaganza Starship Troopers. In this scene, Zander(Patrick Muldoon) gives his last words to the brain bug before it stabs him in the head and sucks his brains out.

Michael Ironside is also in this movie, in fact he gets his legs ripped off and in the film Total Recall(also directed by Verhoeven) both his arms get severed.

Anybody else notice the Millenium Falcon on the backside of the starship, Rodger Youngs' bridge? Look for it the next time you watch Starship Troopers.

I am surprised that he got worst director even if these were some bad movies. I would call them goodbad. They were entertaining with the cheesy one liners and gore. What more can you ask for in a goodbad movie. I am fan of his also. Great site man and thanks for stopping by at DMR.
