    There's an HD version here:



    The best I can say? It doesn't look quite as bad as I was expecting, there are some hints of interesting concepts in there, i.e. having the illusion of freewill vs the original's programmed and discovering freewill.

    If you want some behind the scenes insight on the original:

    ETA: Oh yeah, and it would have been a little hard for me to watch it whilst I was under 10, seeing as I was 18 when it came out...

    Hmmm... I have a bad feeling about this. Was not impressed by that trailer. Only thing I liked was ED209 ;)

    Well, I did say hints, I just didn't say they immediately stomp all over them.

    Yeah, all Verhoven's SF movies stand up even now because they're beautifully shot, skillfully designed, and well written. When you get someone like that who has a clear vision and talent they imbibe their productions with such a distinct personality it makes them timeless.

    ED209 does look a little shaky now, but the stop-motion effect is very creepy in a way that CG rarely manages.

    The only good bit was the line "dead or alive, you're coming with me" with a bit of robotic alteration to the voice.

    Best ED209 moment from the original is Robocop just dealing with the one guarding OCP headquarters. Shades of Indy shooting that guy with the swords in Raiders.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    I also like Snake Plissken's "Bangkok Rules".

    The only shot I can think of that looks terrible right now is when Arnie is dressed as the fat woman when he's arriving on Mars and then takes off his head... I can't really remember many others. Maybe when their heads are about to pop as they're ejected from the facility at the end...

    I see he still has a human hand for those emotional moments. Wiping tears no doubt.

    Nice to see Keaton again.

    The Twist Gun was an absolute legend in our school. Not least because it shot footballs in the speccy version, so we all used to lob our caseys at each other.

    I wasn't horrified by the trailer. I don't like the black version, but I can see why they're doing it in the context of the film.

    Just a quick show of hands... who watched robocop before their 10th birthday?
    Someone had it on VHS and I refused to give it back. Great film, great movie poster. Someone mentioned the stop-motion, I'd imagine no-one nowadays would have the patience to do something that could be done in a few mins on a PC.

    Still, this re-make looks interesting enough, and Michael Keaton looks good in the Ronny Cox(?) role.

    That was a great scene. Really hammered home that they were cold-hearted bastards who saw Murphy as nothing more than a slab of meat.

    IIRC they were manufacturing it there. Or at least packaging it up.

    Possibly, my most quotable film, as a teen. Off the top of my head: "Guns, guns, guns!", "He's a cop killer!", "Dead or alive you're coming with me", "We killed you", "You have 20 seconds to comply", "Bitches leave" etc..

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    There used to be a guy at work that looked like Clarence Boddicker and we always used to say "can you fly Bobby" when he walked passed.

    My work is quite the hoot

    I love in the ED209 scene how everyone runs away from the dead guy because they know hes completely fucked.

    I remember back in the early 90's when I was about 12 staying up late to watch the UK Premier of the Robocop Directors Cut... which basically was just this scene in it's entirety added back in. Those were the days...

    Anyone who thinks Robocop was 'too violent' doesn't appreciate quality 80's gore in all it's glory and should be ashamed of them self.

    Just like pretty much every blockbuster made these days, nobody that ever went to the cinema in the last twenty years needs to see this because they've already seen it. That's also the major problem with Elysium, for example - it never does a single thing you don't expect and haven't been waiting for since it was clumsily signposted half an hour earlier. I doubt this will be any different.

    And if you ever saw Robocop in the first place, you definitely don't need to see this.

    Any Netflix library in the world for a couple of quid a month? Gimme!
