Maybe for me its more of the lack of an expansive cannon material that makes it seem so not rebooted to just a different telling of the story much like all the Robin Hood or Knights of the Round table movies.
Seriously, the "source material" felt like the original movie not the story. It was like watching the same movie with a crappy leading man and a better looking love interest.
They're going to **** it up. The social commentary, black humour, satire will be non-existent. But I'll still watch it.
I probably should've posted this already. Sorry.
Maybe it's analogous to an issue of Marvel comics I picked up where they tried to do a parody of some of the wilder stuff from the Fantastic Four's early days, which included the editor's note: "Sorry, dear readers. It's impossible to write parody Ben Grimm dialogue that doesn't sound exactly like the real thing."
I thought more people realised Starship Troopers was satire? I knew it was immediately and really enjoyed that film.
