    Personally I think Starship Troopers may be one of the greatest subversive head**** movies ever. And yes...I read the original book. If you want to read a book that takes the original concept even farther read ARMOR by John Steakley. That book far exceeds the source material, like I think the(starship troopers) movie did. Sorry, as good as the Starship Troopers book was, it was a miniscule thing just waiting to be outdone.

    I kind of agree with that. The original has NOT aged well and seems a little silly at this point. The cast on this one is pretty nice. I think Colin Farrell has gotten better as he's aged, and Cranston, Nighy and Bokeem Woodbine. Nice eyecandy with Biel and whatshername. Could be good.

    Yea the only problem is that Jessica Biel is not good.

    They should remake every Schwarzenegger film except Conan, Predator and the first Terminator.

    It would be better with someone who isn't Schwarzenegger in it.

    40 years from now people will look back at those movies and wonder what the hell was wrong with us.

    I have to agree here...part of the reason why Total Recall(2012) already has instant credibility is because the main character isn't a steroid infused giant with an Austrian accent. Always thought that was kind of weird in the Terminator movies that robots creating robots would install a confusing accent into this unbelievable acheivement. If you watch any Schwarzenegger flick it's a problem. Except for maybe Red Heat. He was a star, an amazing one, who managed to be HUGE box office in spite of the logic flaws created in ANY movie just because of his existence. And yeah, what the hell were they thinking with Running Man? Would they really put a guy in the game who basically negated the natural strengths of the chasers? C'mon Adgy...Ahnold does not scream 'every man' like the lead in a movie should.
