New robocop in the works...... :noplease:

They are going to humanize Murphy by allowing us to see his eyes through the visor.
That is pretty much what the entire third act of the movie was for.....

RoboCop is going to be a lot more human," explains Kinnaman, who shot to stardom in TV's The Killing. The first movie is one of my favourite movies. I love it. Of course, Verhoeven has that very special tone, and it's not going to have that tone.

"It's a re-imagination of it," he continues. "There's a lot of stuff from the original. There are some details and throwbacks, but this version is a much better acting piece for Alex Murphy and especially when he is RoboCop. It's much more challenging."

He also dropped a few tidbits about RoboCop's suit, which will also be changing for the new film. "It's not going to be jaw acting," he explained. "They're still working on the suit and how it's going to look, but the visor is going to be see-through. You're going to see his eyes."

All of which might give purists some cause for alarm, although Kinnaman's comments about the film's potential certificate might help to allay some fears.

It was pure 80s action/camp, a genre that doesn't translate well to modern film making. Part of the appeal was the cheesy special effects and over the top acting. Why do we need to remake stuff like this? Just go make a modern action/camp movie with awesome special effects and over the top acting! For example...

:agreed:

The only time I go to the movies now is if it's some cartoony-kind of movie that my kids want to see.

I never saw Robocop when it came out but I'd much rather rent that rather than see what some current director/producer thinks is the "more up to date" version.

Also just saw the thread about "Total Recall". Cripes - can't you leave the movies of my childhood alone? Come up with some damn new ideas, not just taking existing movies and tweaking them.

You're not getting my damn money.

:metal:

That movie is the epitome of win. I was VERY afraid that it would be shit, but I was totally blown away by the awesomeness. Stallone oncentrated exactly on whats necessary. No bullshit, just action.
