Format: DVD
Starship Troopers is a strong action movie, a near-classic sci-fi movie, and an absolutely hilarious critique of war movies and war propaganda.

On the surface, Starship Troopers appears to be an ultra-simplistic sci-fi war movie in which heavily-armed space soldiers battle giant monsters. Delve a little deeper, though, and notice that so many of the scenes in this movie are recreations of old WW2 and Viet-Nam era propaganda taken to the extreme. Just as war propaganda (on both sides, mind you) always seeks to dehumanze the enemy, depicting them as savages or barbarians or simply "godless," here, the enemy actually isn't human. It is the ultimate "other," a monster, an animal, a BUG.

The training scenes are riddled with the clichees of war movie training scenes. But the overuse of clichees are not, here, the signs of bad screewriting, but an attempt to hilight and ridicule these tropes while forcing us to admit that, really, we kind of enjoy them.

Anyway, if you haven't seen Starship Troopers or have but think it silly or stupid, watch it (again) and pick out all those scenes that make light of classic war movies and old (and not so old)-fashioned war propaganda.

It's a fun, bloody, thrilling, and hilariously clever film.

I ordered, and initially couldn't get it to run. A loading bar came up and everything seemed to stop after that. In the back of my Blu Ray player is a USB port. Apparently this title needs addional memory to initiate the loading program (for whatever reason). I plugged in a USB stick I happen to have lying around, and all is fine

Apparently this is a problem with Sony titles and Blu Ray

Other devices such as PlayStation may already have this addtional memeory, so might be okay

I would believe that the filmmakers reacted to Robert A. Heinlein's sometimes almost jingoistic take on the militartistic preservation of "liberty" in creating this campy send-up of ultrapatriotism of days gone by (even though it is set in the future). But they forgot, or did not care, about the great service RAH did for the genre -- especially for the YA set in the 1950s and 1960s and did a greatly disrespectful disservice to the author's memory by using his title. I hope his family was compensated. I liked this film. It's fun. But the movie's makers could have done just as well without using Heinlein's name and booktitle -- considering that the movie and book do not much resemble each other.

It's a movie from Robocop director Paul verhoven, so it is good. Basically this movie is a social comentairy about wars.

Cheese whiz classic. Lots of underlying societal themes and messages amongst the bad acting and silly action scenes. Love it!

This disc doesn't work at all except a pink loading bar at the beginning. I tried to plug in an USB disk to my blu-ray player like someone said above. But it still doesn't work. Nothing at all on the screen. I can say it is definitely this disc's problem coz my blu-ray player played over 100 discs and this situation never happens.

In defense of our world, school kids from Argentina join the military upon graduation. Military service is required for full citizenship. During their term they learn their new environment and grow together or apart as they battle big bugs from outer space.

Yep it is another bug movie. And the bugs are big. Too bad for the people that read the book. There is no way to justify this movie to you.

However this is a great parity on military types with the grunts being boxy shaped faces and bodies to match, the elite having pointy accouterments. And the gung-ho getting their brains sucked out. This looks like a pilot for a TV series. Male associate soldiers from the book were replaced with female soldiers who improved the shower scenes.

If you just have to take the 'Fascist Utopia' thing seriously then watch a serious movie where there is still a Paul sucked into the same situation by his teacher and others in "All Quiet on the Western Front" (1930).

Early on, in my formative years, I was introduced to horror films by my mom. Our local late-night horror-fest was Creature Features, hosted by the immortal Bob Wilkins. Through this forum, I was exposed to the great Universal horror films of the 30's, the silly Japanese rubber-suit monster movies, and my favorites, the atomic-age big bug films of the 1950's.
Fast-forward to winter, 1997. I'm sitting in a theater watching Starship Troopers, and it feels like I've stepped into a time machine. This is possibly the best of all the big bug movies, and it's not afraid to show its roots. Sometime in the future, Earth is under attack by huge bugs from another planet. We follow the lives of a few of Earth's best and brightest, as they join the army and head off in different directions. What really struck me about this film is that they actually took the time to develop a three-dimensional world for the characters to inhabit. That's what makes the difference to me. Yes, the young actors are mostly pretty eye candy, and their performances, while not Oscar-caliber, are light years beyond their forebears of the 50's. The world of their future is seemingly fascistic (service in the military guarantees citizenship and other perks, such as the right to vote and the right to have children. Hmm - a future in which people's active participation in their country allows them greater freedoms, provided they take personal responsibility for themselves and their future? I've heard worse notions...). We follow the idealistic youths through basic training, all the way to several epic battles on other worlds and we see their progress as soldiers and as humans along the way. It's this kind of attention to detail and character development that sets this film apart from many others.
