    OK, I am arriving in this thread late, but my point is simple.

    Starship Troopers the book was/is one of the best Sci-Fi novels ever written. All should read it, just for the experience.

    Starship Troopers the movie was sacrilege, an abomination, completely without merit. I hope the director never worked again, and burns in a special hell reserved for hollywood directors who insist on 'changing' everything and who believe that 'more is better.'

    Starship Troopers the game (by AH) was pretty good, and I had much fun playing it.

    NEED I SAY MORE????????????!!!

    I gave up on the Airbrush Digest - formerly known as Playboy, a long, long time ago. And if I really want large quantitites of silicone, I can find all I need at WalMart or Home Depot.

    If you've seen her in Playboy, she's not so perky anymore....

    Who's she? (that's a question meant to denote I likely don't care ).
    Never mind Redwolf's lengthy explanation - - she's Charlie Sheen's squeeze, and we all know Charlie!

    Or, let's just say that she's "cute and perky"...

    Some google-foo will help, but in general it's a moderately successful actress with commonly judges pleasing appearance. Enough to make a movie worth it regardless of story and effects and all that nonsense

    You remember kind of military, which the book argues in chapter two, this would produces? A service full of people who cannot be denied entry for any reason other than inability to understand the oath. Everyone forgets that bit. You must also consider what happens when the military controls the government? Which is a defacto state of affairs when only those with service are allowed to vote. And what about others who have made great contributions to their county? Industrialists, scientists, doctors... hasn't their service and sacrifice earned them the right to vote? Doesn't the hard working dedicated entrepreneur, who contributes hundreds of thousands in taxes, get a say in how his money is spent? Without him who would pay for the bloated military that cannot find work for all the unqualified, but constitutionally guaranteed membership. Also, membership in the military is cheapened when it is open to everyone regardless of ability, aptitude, dedication, disability, etc... Like the recruiting sergeant points out, membership in the military is stylish rather than purposeful or meaningful.
    Incorrect: the book made it clear that only those qualified could enter themilitary. Those that weren't were given other duties, such as testing dangerous equipment.

    I agree. She is the highlight of the movie ...that and Patrick Muldoon taking a brain sucker to the head.
