Paul Verhoeven

Paul Verhoeven tends to invest formula (be it sci-fi in nature, or modeled on Hitchcockian suspense) with a mad, pulp energy, as though he felt like anything short of a cackling, sensationalist dive into pop trash—perfectly tuned for the horny boy—would cheat the masses.   127 more words

Part Action. Part Drama. All Awesome. Robocop.

Sadly, we recently lost actor Miguel Ferrer to cancer aged 61. He had a prolific acting career and featured in over 120 movies, TV shows and even lent his voice talent to animated projects and video games. 1,456 more words

Elle (2016)

In all honesty, I’m probably the last person that should be writing this review. Paul Verhoeven’s latest is the exact kind of fearless, subversive button pusher that I typically enjoy from the director’s back catalog of all-time greats. 769 more words

Starship Troopers

Almost 20 years later, Starship Troopers has only gotten more incisive. Paul Verhoeven and Ed Neumeier (co-writer of Verhoeven’s Robocop) construct an elaborate pisstake around Robert Heinlein’s militarist sci-fi novel, framing an otherwise standard issue war narrative about humanity against a varied collective of giant space bugs with the most fascistic embellishments. 229 more words

Paul Verhoeven, Elle, 2016

Çok güzel başlangıç, güzel back story, sonra neden konulduğunu anlamadığım ilişkiler, mesela oğlunun eşinin ve yeni doğan siyah çocuk (çok kötü bir şaka), kadının en yakın arkadaşı ve eşiyle olan hiçbir şey söylemeyen ilişkisi… Bu detaylar ve detayların kör göze parmak sahneleriyle, anladık deli kız arkadaş oğlu anneden çalmak ister ve dindar insanlar karanlıktır!, film bitmek bilmedi. 174 more words
