Starship Troopers: One of the Most Misunderstood Movies Ever

There’s a theme emerging here where films are reexamined and dissected for the better.  Sucker Punch got a similar 2nd chance at life with this video essay:

I had to stand up for the Burton/Depp Alice in Wonderland.  I know that Josh Olson stood against the tide with Speed Racer (which I haven’t seen, so he might be full of it!).

I always liked Starship Troopers for what it was, not considering it some kind of master work, but I did get the dark satirical view lording over it.  It seemed in direct conflict with the underlying source material, as if Verhoeven was mocking the book (could be, haven’t read it).
