[worst movie ever] 4th nomination - starship troopers

Imdb: Directed by Paul Verhoeven, Writing credits (WGA), Robert A. Heinlein (book), Edward Neumeier (screenplay) Plot Outline: Humans of a fascistic, militaristic future do battle with giant alien bugs in a fight for survival.

All right, we get the idea. Now, not long ago, dirty dingus wrote…Starship Troopers should be there for its wilful abuse of the novel. It’s another of those movies that cause you to stop watching before the end. In this case it also makes you feel like shooting the dire-ector.

Author: Freemheart from Chile gives her literate take on the movie: The acting it's good, the soundtrack it's one of the best works of Basil Poleoduris. After this you can read the book of Robert Heinlein founding how far goes Paul Verhoeven in every scene and every character creating. This is a little worrying – praise from Chile. Let’s look at the cast: Casper Van Dien playing Johnny Rico, Dina Meyer playing Dizzy Flores and Denise Richards playing Carmen Ibanez.

Stop! Stop! Denise Richards, another ‘actress’ who runs the full gamut of emotions from A to B. Denise Richards, of TWINE – you know – the one with the tummy tatts and the heaving bust, whose acting won her the coveted Movie Site: Worst Supporting Actress of 1999, in The World is Not Enough.

All right, it’s on the list, dirty dingus.

No, no, no, no, NO. The whole point of what Verhoeven was trying to achive was satire and coal black irony, so he deliberately cast loads of no-talent pretty boys and girls.

Ah, perhaps L'Ombre didn't see that. Haven't seen the movie myself.
