Not to mention it was filmed within an hour of where I live.

Starship troopers is entertainment, and damn good entertainment at that, dont go looking for deep underlying morals and philosophy, watch it to see kick ass rifle/shotgun hybrids blowing bugs apart

I don't think Starship Troopers the book is filmable. It's a political science book with some sci fi thrown in. I think if Verhoeven simply called it "Alien Bug Hunt" or whatever, people would've seen it for what it was and enjoyed it more.

All this talk of Starship Troopers, and yet only one mention of Total Recall. But yes, Verhoeven, like Brian De Palma, have had many dry years of late.

Do you know what's a tragedy? Ewan McGregor and Danny Boyle haven't worked nor spoke to each other in years! They made such a great team!
