Starship Troopers (ENGLISH)

Starship Troopers (Basil Poledouris). Paul Verhoeven's films of the 80s and 90s were characterized by its originality full of crudeness. Thus, his films like RoboCop, Total Recall and Starship Troopers are remembered by the originality of its staging, and impacted by the extreme violence that the director took pains to show. In the case of Starship Troopers, the fierce battles against the immense and almost invincible insects granted the film an aura of credibility that ended up leaving a good taste at the end of the film, despite the simple argument. In the music section, Basil Poledouris (who already signed the score for Verhoeven's RoboCop) composed a complete and colorful soundtrack.

The martial style that dominates the Fed-Net ads impregnate the atmosphere with a bellicose tone that tries to recruit all kinds of people with the promise to convert them into "citizens" and, thereby, achieve certain privileges and a higher social status respect to the standard civil status. Beyond this satire that the television commercials represent, Poledouris composed a work for a movie of entertainment, with all kind of themes, and with a main pivot point in the stunning assault by the Alliance to the alien planet Klandathu, full of giant insects (Klandathu Drop).

The original soundtrack was released in 1997 by Varèse Sarabande, and included a very lacking 36 minutes. But in 2016, Varèse re-edits the score with more footage, in a two-disc version and 103 minutes with just a few extra tracks, allowing finally to enjoy this great soundtrack.

Starship Troopers: Las Brigadas del Espacio (ESPAÑOL)

Starship Troopers: Las Brigadas del Espacio (Basil Poledouris). El cine de Paul Verhoeven de los 80 y 90 se caracterizó por su originalidad repleta de crudeza. Así, películas suyas como RoboCop, Desafío Total y Starship Troopers son recordadas por lo original de su puesta en escena, e impactaban por la extrema violencia que el director se esmeraba en enseñar. En el caso de Starship Troopers, las encarnizadas batallas frente a los inmensos y casi invencibles insectos otorgaban al film un halo de credibilidad que terminaba por dejar un buen sabor de boca al final de la película, a pesar de lo simple del argumento. En el apartado musical, Basil Poledouris (que ya firmó la partitura de RoboCop para Verhoeven) compuso una banda sonora completa y vistosa.

El estilo marcial que domina los anuncios de la Cadena Federal impregna la atmósfera de un tono belicista que intenta reclutar a todo tipo de personas con la promesa de convertirles en “ciudadanos” y conseguir con ello ciertos los privilegios y un estatus social más elevado respecto al estado civil estándar. Más allá de esta sátira que representan los anuncios televisivos, Poledouris compone una obra para película de entretenimiento, con todo tipo de temáticas, y con un punto de pivotamiento principal en el impresionante asalto al planeta alienígena Klandathu, repleto de insectos gigantes por parte de la Alianza (Klandathu Drop).

La banda sonora original fue editada en 1997 por Varèse Sarabande, e incluía unos escasísimos 36 minutos. Pero en 2016, Varèse reedita el score con mucho más metraje, en una versión de dos discos y 103 minutos con apenas pistas extras, lo que permite por fin disfrutar de esta gran banda sonora.
