RoboCop

RoboCop

Somehow, I've never atcually watched RoboCop, although I'm sure it must have been on all the time when I was a kid. I've been going back and watching all the late 80s early 90s sci-fi action movies recently, and I never realized how much I love them. It's crazy that I didn't continue to watch them, because they were such a big part of my childhood. I think I just kind of forgot about them after they stopped showing regularly on HBO.

Anyway, this movie is awesome. There's some really great gore effects as well as some cool props. The suit is amazing, and I love the little gps thing that's just some lines engraved on a piece of plastic with a hole for one blinking light. The stop motion robot is a clever way of doing something like that without building an actual sized robot. And, the knees are such a cool design.

EDIT: ROBOCOP IS IN THE CRITERION COLLECTION!!?!?!?!
