  1. This is the first R rated film I ever saw in a theater back when I was 14. I wouldn’t call it one of my all time favorite films, but it does hold kind of a special place in my heart.

  2. If you truly enjoyed it you would really love the TV show Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles. I actually find it better than the films. Sadly, it was never completed. Be forewarned that it’s early CGI, so the visuals didn’t age very well. 🙁

  3. I hate this movie so much

  4. I’ve never seen this movie. I never even HEARD of this movie until I started coming to this website. So you’re not doing this because the new one recently came out? I also haven’t seen Braveheart.

  5. One of my favourite sci-fi flicks. It came out in that golden age when they were still using a blend of models and miniatures, as well as cgi. The effects hold up surprisingly well as a result.

  6. I think the reason why the bullets/guns got a lot more effective at killing the bugs was a twofold gain from time passing between that first fight that went horribad for the humans, and the later battles, one was that the soldiers were the ones who Survived the early clusterhumps, aka the ones who figured out Where to shoot the bugs to bring one down, like that instructional video we see in a “want to know more” segment. The second being technological progress, using bullets and such adapted to kill bugs rather than human targets which was probably the default used in the early parts of the war cause.. “yeah those always worked fine before when we was shooting other humans, right?”

    At least that is my headcanon for explaining that part ^^

    • That’s basically what happened in the original V. The alien Visitors were highly resistant to ordinary human firearms, until some mercenaries figured out that Teflon-coated rounds were much more effective.
