The main thing I noticed about the first film is when they first land on the planet, and one guy dies, and then they're all like "Run awaaaaaay!". :-\

That is because everyone in the first movie is a retard.

The even more silly thing is that they have nuke rocket launchers but no tanks whatsoever.

I always wondered why they sent in ground pounders instead of just nuking the bejesus out of the planet from orbit, are they hoping to recover whatever resources could be found on that (if memory serves) desert world?  If they're one and only objective is to kill the bugs, why don't they just nuke the whole planet?

Once again, because everyone in the first movie is a retard.

When making the film they decided that they should throw the following things out the window:
The book (and the tactics and ideas it offers)
Tactics
Strategy
Common sense

There are so many problems with the movie it isn't even funny. Besides the ones already mentioned, there is also the fact that the fleet, despite the fact that they know they can't avoid the plasma attacks from the bugs, decide to gather in one large group, basically making escape impossible.

Why? What was wrong with the first film, provided you take it as it was, a film that had its tongue planted firmly in its cheek?

By the way, people who compare it to the book automatically lose all rights to comment.

They should have named it "stupid people, breasts, bugs, and guns... would you like to know more?"

Of course, if you judge the movie on its merits  then it is a fun action flick with a lot of tongue in cheek humor, provided you turn of your brain before you watch it.


By the way, people who compare it to the book automatically lose all rights to comment.

Why? Is it that unreasonable that people expected a somewhat faithful version of the book? Imagine reading the book, loving it and then hearing that there is a movie. Of course you get excited, but then you actually see the movie and discover the only real thing they have in common is sci fi and bugs.

Actually, if you judge the movie on its merits, it doesn't exist.

There was nothing good about Starship Troopers when I saw it. Maybe it was a different film when you were watching it?
Not a winner anymore.

Some action and boobs goes a long way.

But yes otherwise it sucks.

The first one wasn't half bad, it did have some of the things that the book had, like the government ruthlessly exploiting the patriotism of their young population and the use of propaganda.
The second one seemed like it had three directors fiercely competing against each other, one wanted to do an action flick, one a soft-core porn movie and the last one wanted to do a really bad knock-off of invasion of the body snatchers. After much feuding they then realized that they'd actually been told to make a movie that at least had some semblance to the first so they bolted on a completely obvious message at the end.
What have you got against intellectual midgets? They're quite smart little guys as far as i can tell.
