Midnights: STARSHIP TROOPERS Drinking Game
Saturday, September 16 @ 11:55 pm
Drink along to the movie! Drink during gunfights, with a memorable quote, and more! Full guidelines will be provided at the event.
“One of the most merciless satires of its time.” – The A.V. Club
“Few recent films tap into the underlying forces shaping today’s world as piercingly as Verhoeven’s vision of a thoroughly Americanized global civilization that exploits media and youth culture to wage endless war against an appointed enemy.” – Slant Magazine
“Informed by Verhoeven’s memories of Nazi-occupied Holland, plus screenwriter Ed Neumier’s satirization of the 1959 source novel’s pro-fascist stance, Starship Troopers is the garish outlier among the self-serious war tales of the 1990s.” – The L Magazine
In the distant future, the Earth is at war with a race of giant alien insects. Little is known about the Bugs except that they are intent on the eradication of all human life. But there was a time before the war… A Mobile Infantry travels to distant alien planets to take the war to the Bugs. They are a ruthless enemy with only one mission: Survival of their species no matter what the cost.
Dir. Paul Verhoeven. 1997. 129 min.
Midnight Special! $5 beer + shot combos available during the screening.
