    Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars

    Paul Verhoeven's Starship Troopers was an incredibly important film to me in my teenage years, and it was one of the first UHD titles I picked up when I started collecting 4k discs five years ago. I had probably seen it several dozen times over the years at that point, and I'm pretty sure that I've watched it an additional five or six times since then.

I've seen Citizen Kane, Othello, and Macbeth, as well as pieces of F for Fake. I may have seen The Magnificent Ambersons, too, but I'm not certain about that-- and even if that is the case, then I've still only seen a fraction of his filmography.

    I had never even heard of Touch of Evil before Kino…
