Looks retarded.
 
2013-09-05 07:57:23 PM
Looks fun.
 
2013-09-05 08:02:38 PM
It looks like it has potential.
 
2013-09-05 08:06:16 PM
I'd buy that for a $1.

/because I already saw this movie.

YOU HAVE 20 SECONDS TO DENOUNCE YOUR CHILDHOOD

/how about no
 
2013-09-05 08:25:51 PM
Seriously? Are you going to make it that edgy, Colombia?

At this point you might as well remake Patton, Hollywood.

/Make John Cena play Patton, too.

Huh. I like focusing on the struggle of man vs. the machine. We got some of that in the original, but it looks like they are willing to play up what this kind of transformation would actually mean to a person. Which at least means they were thinking about characters and not just explosions, which is promising. And then there's Samuel L Jackson being...well, I am just going to assume he is being himself at this point because it is always the same bit. That's usually mostly fun.
 
2013-09-05 08:31:03 PM
Well....looks like 2014 has a good start at sucking with movies...like 2013...


/Looks like it should be a Syfy Saturday night movie.

So instead of implication, subtlety and understatement, they're going to slap up in the face with it to the point of bathos.

I think Detective Holder will make a good Robocop.
 
2013-09-05 08:43:01 PM
it SUX
 
2013-09-05 08:51:06 PM
Yeah, a car bomb is such a huge improvement over the scene which made the first robocop. Lame.

Aside from some of the effects being rather dated, there is nothing at all wrong with the original movie. This reboot looks like watered-down generic uninteresting crap.
 
2013-09-05 09:02:23 PM
So ... I just watched that.

What is up with the one human hand? Why would they do that? It's vulnerable!

Because Jesus said, "if your hand offends you, cut it off and toss it away."
 
2013-09-05 09:03:42 PM
Not ready to say no, but no immediate impulse to say yes either.
 
2013-09-05 09:03:44 PM
Also, if no one says, "Biatches leave," I'll be sorely disappointed.

/Kurtwood Smith made that movie, man ...

This operation to rescue the 101st airborne at Bastogne is a mockery of a sham of two travesties of a mockery!

I've never gotten around to watching this. Does it stand the test of time and worth the effort?

djkutch: I've never gotten around to watching this. Does it stand the test of time and worth the effort?


Yeah, I'll always watch it if it's on one of the movie channels.  Don't watch it sober though.  The special effects are a bit lacking by today's standards (a lot of stop-motion).

Well it was better than I was expecting, which was the transformers done human-sized.

I've got it in my collection, and I still enjoy watching it now and then

The FX were kind of cheesy even back in 1987. But the movie is still awesome.

HawgWild: What is up with the one human hand? Why would they do that? It's vulnerable!


If I remember right there's a part during the transformation scene in the original where one of the scientist boasts that they were able to save the hand, but the OCP guy told them to amputate it.
 
2013-09-05 10:10:24 PM
Also, it looks decent.

I doubt that they're going to capture any of the fun cultural criticism of the original, but it will probably be better than Robocops 2 and 3.

I figure the special FX can't be worse than The Terminator. It's in the queue and will be scheduled with the next binge drinking. Thank you!

djkutch: I've never gotten around to watching this. Does it stand the test of time and worth the effort?


I think it's one of those movies that actually seems better with the test of time. It confused a lot of people in the 80s, especially the studio's marketing department.

I don't know if the social commentary was lost on the execs/marketers, or if they purposefully went for the lowest common denominator and decided to ride the coattails of The Terminator.

so much so that they even used the Terminator theme music in the 1987 theatrical trailer

which is kind of funny now seeing how the Robocop theme is pretty recognizable and iconic as well.

/I remember seeing that trailer in the theaters as a teen and recognizing the Terminator theme.

calbert: I don't know if the social commentary was lost on the execs/marketers, or if they purposefully went for the lowest common denominator and decided to ride the coattails of The Terminator.


Well it was the 80s in the peak of Arnie's career. Satire and social commentary weren't exactly what movie audiences were expecting.
 
2013-09-05 10:46:43 PM
Eh, it might not suck.

Sad state of affairs when that's the best thing one can think to say about a movie.
 
2013-09-05 10:55:13 PM
I *really* hope they tell a story. If they crammed the whole movie into the trailer I'm going to be pissed.

/I'm hopeful
//Pessimistic, but hopeful.
 
2013-09-05 10:56:36 PM
seems to me like the social element is outdated...a dead horse beaten by the matrix, terminator, lawn mower man, and others

I'll watch it when it comes to Netflix

I would watch it and love it

Test of time?  Kind of.

Worth the effort?  I guess that depends on your expectations.  For 1987 it was good.  For a movie by the same guy that made Showgirls, it's a masterpiece.

You think you're smart?  Think you can outsmart a bullet?
 
2013-09-05 11:18:19 PM
I liked the original, and even part 2 was good and 3 was decent, but this has a more human feel to it.  Dare I say it could rival or even surpass the original?
 
2013-09-05 11:23:43 PM
I'm not one of those Nerd Purists who hate reboots automatically because NERD RAGE!
I'll see it at a discount theater, but mainly I'll see it because I didn't know Michael Keaton was in it.

You'd better do what he says Mr. Kinney.
 
2013-09-06 01:29:49 AM
Seriously. Cut it out with the theme of the human condition in action movies. I don't give a flying fark about compassion, romance, and emotions. I want to see shiat explode, and I want to see witty one-liners.

It's a fun movie but the SFX are bad even by 1987 standards.
 
2013-09-06 02:37:01 AM
Robocop minus the black humor just seems way too generic. I'll take one acid-melted flesh guy exploding all over a car windshiled over a thousand CGI robot punches.
 
2013-09-06 02:37:50 AM
So he still has his memory in this version?
 
2013-09-06 02:39:18 AM
PG-13

About the only thing from the original Robocop that was memorable that could actually even be in a PG-13 movie is that 'I'd buy that for a dollar' guy.
 
2013-09-06 02:42:39 AM
Biggest surprise for me was how terrible the suit looked during the production stills and how much better it looked in the trailer. Showing it in silver they actually seemed to have done a good job updating it IMO.
 
2013-09-06 02:45:00 AM
The original Robocop was made in 1987 and took place "in the near future," probably meaning late nineties or early aughts.  This thing comes out in 2014 and it's probably also "in the near future."

What a big tease.  I'm starting to think we'll never have Robocops.  Looking forward to hoverboards in a couple of years though.
 
2013-09-06 02:58:11 AM
biatches, leave.
 
2013-09-06 02:59:37 AM
I notice people don't mention Robocop 2 and 3 because they were so shiat.

This one looks like it will fit in right beside them.

Sooooooo they basically rewrote the first movie, making it so not only does he look like he's just wearing a helmet of sorts, but his freaking wife was in on the whole thing and gave them authorization to turn him into a cyborg (AND have him involved with the kid)?

Yeah, I'll be watching the original trilogy the day it comes out and laughing that even R3 will likely be better than this...
 
2013-09-06 03:15:34 AM
So Batman, Gordon and Nick Fury decided they were done with these motherfarking crime in their motherfarking city and built the Goddamn Robocop to bring everyone to justice. EVERYOOONE!!!!
