Brilliant movie. One of my top five favorites of all time.

They spent half the budget on the suit. Worth every penny.

There's too many fantastic scenes in that movie to pick only one.

You choose this then you can't choose the guy from That 70's Show getting a roboshank through the gullet.

I also love that the ITV edit is about an hour long including ad breaks. I've never seen anything so cut in my life. Except those youtube clips of porn movies with the sex removed.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

Yep, that indicative of the usual quality of the films.

The ED-209 boardroom scene is the best scene of the movie. Come on people, it's not even up for debate.

I love this movie. It's one of my all time favorites. So ridiculous. So awesome.

My sig is 1 pixel too big.

I thought this thread was gonna be about the upcoming reboot with Joel Kinnaman in the title role. He is awesome in The Killing, so I'm curious.

The original Robocop was loaded with not-very-stuble social commentary. I wonder if the new one will maintain that element.

It needs to be the unedited version though, which is hilarious.

Peter Weller is a history professor now, which is also awesome.

The car's blue. The "white" is the sun reflecting off the hood. It's still a blue car.

The remake is going to suck squirrel nuts - RoboCop is holy ground, particularly if you completely ignore the sequels (as I do). It should not be trampled upon.
