        There were a lot of stupid parts, but in general it was a GREAT movie!

        The major reason i dind't like hte movie was te sheer stupidity of the army commanders. If some alien species straps a rocket to an asteroid and fires it at earth, why don't we do the same? no, we gotta get people slaughtered by landng them on the surface! But the nuclear grenades WERE cool....

          Also, we use ranged weapons as melee. The bug is there with a reach of over 10 feet and the humans go to a wacking distance of the bug and they fire! I mean come on...I liked the effects but a lot of it was really corny. IMO, there wasn't really any life in that planet except for the bugs. NUKE THEM!

                Maybe they supposdelly couldn't really do much with nuking cos the Aliens lived underground... That's why they fired those portable nukes IN their holes or after going inside themselves... Good enough reason for a movie I suppose

                  Yeah, I mean, they had to make it exciting for a large audience. In the book, if you remember, each soldier was assigned to cover something like 50 square kilometers *by himself*. The power armor was totally that advanced. That would make a realistic but boring movie for the most part.

                  Granted, the book wasn't really about killing aliens either but was just using the bug conflict to make a political point. Political points don't always make for good action movies so they had to change things a little.

                  I like the book and the movie...just for different reasons. (Dizzy made a *much* better girl than guy IMHO, rowr) And I really wish they had kept the power armor in the movie.

                  Death from Above, and all that.

                    Show some repect for the awesome stupid corniness of Starship Troopers you heretics!

                    Oh btw dont go see "ST2:Hero of the Federation" (or how it was called). Its stupid and corny too, but its a very lame boring stupid corniness.

                        Most definately. Aliens is muuuuuch better. In fact, I think I'll go watch it again tonight just to prep myself for the release tomorrow!

                              This mod reminds me a thousand times more of Aliens than ST. Which is fine because Aliens kicked ass. =)
