On this episode, the Retro Movie Geek crew is geeking out over Starship Troopers (1997) and

  • beautiful looking fascists
  • a little bit about the cast
  • the movie almost hitting the mark
  • satire, or lack thereof
  • and much, much more!


From the bridge of the Fleet Battle Station Ticonderoga, with its sweeping galactic views, to the desolate terrain of planet Klendathu, teeming with shrieking, fire-spitting, brain-sucking special effects creatures, acclaimed director Paul Verhoeven crafts a dazzling epic based on Robert A. Heinlein’s classic sci-fi adventure.

Casper Van Dien, Dina Meyer, Denise Richards, Jake Busey, Neil Patrick Harris, Patrick Muldoon, and Michael Ironside star as the courageous soldiers who travel to the distant and desolate Klendathu system for the ultimate showdown between the species.
