So since we’re all fans of Starship Troopers, I’ve always wanted to know. How did you see the original movie? Yes we’ve all seen the crappy sequels (except for Invasion that was great!) . The original film came out in November of 1997. Now that year before the film came out I went to the movies with my dad to see some other film.
The trailer for Starrship Troopers came on and I had to see it. I’ve been into history, more specifically military history since I was 4. So having soldiers in space was a cool new concept that I hadn’t thought of. I had seen Star Wars but that always to me seemed more like a tail of knights in space. Anywho I begged my dad to let me see it. Then when the film did come out both of my parents took me. I want to say I saw it after the opening probably before Christmas. The sexual scene as well as shower was not seen as they covered my eyes with a baseball cap.
Then when the film came out on VHS we bought it…..and it was
Spanish. So we then returned the movie and got the proper VHS. Up until I was
14 it was my favorite film (it’s currently my favorite sci fi film of the 1990’s
since I have many favorite movies). Once when I was watching it again I decided
to actually read the credits and then saw it was based on some novel. The
summer of 2003 just before entering highschool I bought the book and read it. Ever
since I’ve been a reader of sci fi.The books I now read for sci fi go up to 1050 pages (my Honor Harrington novels)
Currently I own all three dvd’s and Invasion on dvd. I haven’t
heard anything new on Starship Troopers the remake. That’s how I got into it. I
can’t remember if any of us has actually shared how we got into Starship
Troopers. How and When did you see it? I assume Mitchell and Trooperzx saw it in highschool.
