Starship Troopers, A classic book. I dislike the Verhoeven filmI think Starship Troopers turned a pretty weak book into an entertaining, if silly, film.
I used to think that Francis Ford Coppola's version of Dracula was very bad: it felt both over the top and weirdly stilted at points. But these days I think that that's its charm, and it does feel like a Victorian melodrama. Although what Keanu Reeves was doing in it, I don't know.
It was an interesting book for its time though I think some people with a certain mindset take it too seriously. The movie was about what I would expect Hollywood to make of it.Starship Troopers, A classic book. I dislike the Verhoeven film
Didn't he also wrote Doorway to Summer? A time travel story with some interesting ideas, but wow the main character's relationship with his love interest is rather off putting.Stranger in a Strange Land showed that Heinlein was more complicated than most Starship Troopers' fans seem to think
The book is a favourite military SF that took some intrersting ideas, did something real with them despite it being a juvie book. The film is so stupid, a disgrace to even use the word satire with dumb Hollywood film like that. People overrate a silly movie because they dont like the book it seems sometimes. Written a by navy man, it isnt anti-miliary, clear anti-war like some other quality,serious Military SF novels.I don't have an answer on that one. But in my case the book is a favorite.
