Ho hum, another space movie where humans have to kill things that look like bugs. But why should any one watch? Nearly everyone is pretty and the way Neal Patrick Harris is cast must be seen to be believed. There's worse ways of spending 100 minutes.

A few hundred years from now Earth is on the brink of war with an alien race known as the Arachnids, or the "Bugs." Shortly after high school friends John D.

Pros: Fun, action adventure     Cons: GORE extraordinaire     I really had no great expectations for this movie. I knew the era that the novel emerged from. We're not talking deep, philosophical fiction here, we're talking pulp sci-fi from the heyday of pulp-sci-fi. Starship Troopers could have been a comic book, but Robert Heinlein turned it into a novel.      I was excited when I heard about Starship Troopers. I thought "this will …
