I enjoyed Starship Troopers film
Even swapped my DVD for free from Flipper to RSDL, even copied to video tape while it was being swapped.
A really enjoyable and well made film, nothing like the original story, but good enough to stand on its own feet.
If you hate it, I don't mind, I just like the cheesiness of it, and the overblown ridiculousness. Yes I did notice a very authortarian rule. But the use of not very well known actors and actresses stopped it becoming a vehicle for actor X.
BTW a tape copy was actually pretty good, much much better than any retail tape, worst thing was surround sound was downgraded to Prologic from 5.1.
Actually that tape was one of my best recordings ever. Showed how much better the loser in the video tape war was than the winner.
