Paul Verhoeven's '80s sci-fis tiptoed between kitsch and corrosive with such brass that people are still debating which bits are meant as satire and which bits aren't.

Thank-you! I rest my case.

The blood and cheese was exactly what made that movie so fun. Remaking it without is like remaking American Pie without the skin and apple pie!! That's more ammo for ya Crazay.

So true dude. Part of the charm was the cheese factor. Just unacceptable if you ask me.

Movie is near perfect, no remake necessary...

Ruining it before it even gets started.
