You're some sort of big, fat, smart-bug aren't you? We watched Starship Troopers (1997) with out friend Matthew Farris and we suddenly feel the need for a shower. This socio-political satire disguised as a shoot-em-up scifi movie is packed with hidden homo-tendencies... you just have to know where to look. The cast is so beautiful they all look like they were carved out of cream cheese. The combined hotness of Casper Van Dien, Denise Richards and Dina Meyer can power a small city for weeks. Not to mention the infamous co-ed shower scene brought to you by director Paul Verhoeven’s (Showgirls, Basic Instinct) egalitarian view on the future of warfare. A twink-ish Neil Patrick Harris as a psychic special forces general, shirtless corporal punishment and army barracks grab-ass round out the scenes that have stayed with us since we were baby gays watching this movie with our oblivious families. Maybe we missed out on the not-so-subtle satire then, but we totally watch for the plot now. Would you like to know more?
