    Was the remake of Psycho as good as Hitchkok's orginal ? Have you noticed how many remakes of great classic movies are being made? I think the writing talent has left the movies. Or, the industry is running zscared and trying to bring the money making films. As for Starship Troopers,I read the book first so the film was a big letdown. Joe

    Notice how Robocop came out in 1987 and Detroit is still a crack-infested warzone.

    liberals have been in charge of Detroit for decades. It's all part of their plan.

    That’s a terrible indictment of the “ordinary person”, if so. Egad.

    To me, the most obvious reading of RoboCop and Starship Troopers are satires told via violent action movies, both aimed at American culture, with RoboCop picking up consumerism and rampant privatisation, for example, and Starship Troopers cranking patriotism up to 11—though Starship Troopers, in retrospect, seems more than anything a satire of the very novel it’s based on. Not an adaptation (as such, it would be a complete failure), but a satire.

    I always thought Starship Troopers would've been perfectly good if they didn't even end up going to Klendathu. The superpatriotism and military training were already pretty entertaining, and that's where they got most of their social commentary in. The Klendathu part's almost like another movie, making it seem like Full Metal Jacket in the future.

    I haven't seen the new Total Recall yet, but if these movies don't include the messiest squibs ever (in massive quantity) they'll never even come close to the cult status of Verhoven's originals. They just don't make films like that anymore. Verhoven set the watermark for over the top 90's action violence IMHO.

    No they just know that nostalgia is a powerful selling tool and that everyone wants to go back to their childhood same reason they keep making retro cars and the what not.

    A few remakes have been pretty damn good, Battle Star Galactica for one.
