Re: Dune film
A Starship Troopers remake is overdue - just do the first couple of chapters and leave out the moralising.
A very small squad of very heavily armoured mariness on the bounce laying waste to a planet after being dropped from a ship. The bugs (ie Russians) are fairly numerous and but less aggressive. The book mentions them being roughly equal to a human in combat, but there are many more of them. Only the soldier bugs fight, so learn to tell them apart from the workers.
The book has at least one other alien race - the skinnies.
When is Old Man's War coming out?
