Her 30s were not kind to her.

Directed by a woman. There's your first problem.
Women are capable of directing great films, but only by accident, like Ravenous or American Psycho. In both films, the female director tried to present her own agenda and make a statement (anti-misogyny, pro-vegetarianism), but failed miserably. Like Verhoeven tried to make some anti-fascism statement with Starship Troopers, but ended up making one of the most pro-military Hollywood movie ever. I love it how such messengers of ideology fuck up and end up instead creating something immensely amazing and entertaining contrary to their original vision.

The funny thing about Verhoeven is that he never read the story. He only read a chapter or so and thought it was shit. He needed someone on staff to explain what the story is about. So he wanted to fulfill his own fantasies and instead it blew up in his face.

The Starship Troopers movie wasn't even meant to be a Starship Troopers movie. It started out as a completely unrelated script and someone involved in the production read the script and said 'That sounds like Starship Troopers'. So they bought the rights to the book and cribbed superficial elements.

Imagine spending a billion US dollars to be a loser. Could've watched animu and be one for free.

So another I, Robot and Catwoman. Thankfully a lot better than other movies of this "franchise".

Van Damme was offered the lead in Delta Force 2 and American Ninja 3 but chose Cyborg. Just imagine that alternate timeline.

Van Damme just keeping it real.

I'm more annoyed that we were going to get a Cyborg 3 with Angelina Jolie but producers didn't think she was as hot as the nobody they replaced her with. Probably wouldn't have been a Hackers, and Liz Hurley would have been Lara Croft in a real movie.
