starship troopers

Joel Polowin tells me that the novel of Starship Troopers is not very similar to the movie:

The original book was by Heinlein, yes, but the movie seems to have
very little in common with it except for a few names, and some
scenes and situations mangled almost beyond recognition. I recommend
the book. If the movie is anything like the script that's been
posted (see ), I will be staying far
away from it -- there's a big emphasis on violence and splatter, and
a sense of physics and military procedure that rank with the worst
of Star Trek's bloopers.
