My Favorite Film Extraterrestrials, Species Number 4: The Bugs from ‘Starship Troopers.’

Coming in at number four on my list of favorite extraterrestrial species on film are the bugs from Starship Troopers. All of them.

Because, if I’m being honest, whenever I watch this movie, I always root for the bugs. They weren’t the bad guys, after all. And I’m always disappointed when the humans win.

Also, I think this movie might contain the most attractive fighting force ever assembled on film. Many of them die horribly. The director, Paul Verhoeven, saw some nasty shit during World War II, when he was just a child. Hence the graphic violence in his films. Though I’m not sure that explains Showgirls.
