There’a a 90-minute version of this movie’s that three stars. I can picture it in my mind.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
So i’m rewatching Starship Troopers the other night, right?
And Rico makes it back to the starbase and in my mind I’m like “Oh shit! Here comes that moment where he’s getting the laser tattoo and somebody pours tequila on his arm”
When all of a sudden Denis Richard and her new BF show up and I’m like “oh yeah, they beat the shit out of each other first”
And out of goddamn NOWHERE Mazzy Star’s “Fade into You” starts…
If this film were a piece of furniture, it would be a grandfather clock - every piece of it is intentional, everything serves a purpose, everything is lovingly crafted, and a few times an hour it makes a loud fucking noise and something pops out at you for no goddamn reason.
Sparse jump scares aside, this is a modern classic.
