I think when you say "oh, God, Paul Verhoeven
" and when I say "oh, God
, Paul Verhoeven", we're not quite thinking the same thing.
If this were just Robocop
and Total Recall
Verhoeven, that would be great. But it's also Showgirls
, Hollow Man
, and Starship Troopers
Verhoeven. I could give him a pass on Showgirls
(since I'm sure it was at least fun for him to make) and even Hollow Man
, but I can't forgive him for turning a great Heinlein novel into a barely-recognizable parody of itself.
