TGB Breakdown Ep 12: Verhoeven's Starship Troopers (Guest: Liam O'Donnell)
by Tim Buel
February 26, 2013
On this episode of The Golden Briefcase Breakdown, hosts Tim & Jeremy are joined by guest Liam O'Donnell of Hydraulx for a spoiler-filled discussion on Paul Verhoeven's 1997 science fiction action cult classic Starship Troopers, based on the Robert A. Heinlein novel, starring Casper Van Dien. The main purpose of Breakdown episodes is to to ponder, discuss and challenge the films that we feel often need more than just a simple review. We breakdown the film to discuss plots and theories in order to better understand the director's vision and hopefully challenge our listeners at home to re-evaluate the way they watch cinema.
Extra episodes of TGB Breakdown will be arriving about every month, and will appear here in addition to all of our regular weekly Golden Briefcase episodes. Beware - every episode of TGB Breakdown will contain SPOILERS for the film in discussion (this one about 1997's Starship Troopers). You've been WARNED!
