Starship Troopers was basically a bug shoot-em-up
No. No, it wasn't.
Starship Troopers - the first one - was a satirical look at how a society based upon militaristic views always sets itself up as the "good guys", regardless of who actually starts the conflict, and always considers any and all actions to be warranted. I think it's a good film.
The later movies were just unadulterated shit. Even Jolene Blalock cannot be considered a saving grace...
