Robocop

Sticking it on literally now, Directors Cut. Best film ever made. Probably seen it about 150 times. Never gets old. Just gets better. Cracking a beer for this. Happy New Year (soon).

OCP is almost literally GameCube before GameCube.

Fucking banger.

ED-209 makes me cackle like an idiot and I’m usually a bit squeamish with the old hyperviolence.

SPOILERS, you’ve all seen this film so I’m just going to roll with it, apologies if that offends anyone. Nice gritty introduction to the characters at the very start, bit like an 80’s The Wire.

PAUSE.

I was working part time in a Tesco garage selling petrol in the very late 80’s and there was a new girl I was supposed to train, but I needed training myself, would have been 18. There was a high power boss, flash sports car, massive power mad yuppie type, he reminded me so much of Bob Morton (almost Husker Du there). She got nervous just serving him to his petrol purchase and put the transaction through twice, full tank. She asked, should we report it, I was like… nah.

it’s not but it’s absolutely top tier social commentary tbh
also the bit with the robot dog thing mincing up that office worker is another ridiculously funny Verhoeven moment

When I realised who he was when I watched Twin Peaks. Damn. That moment.

One of the greatest films of all time. It rules so fucking much.

Probably the best one-liner in film history as well.

Morton, the first film yuppie that actually seems kind of likeable? Does anyone remember that Demon Yuppies From Hell edition of Hellblazer (comic), think its the third comic.

It’s this, right?

Boddicker is in the van, what a crew.

Too many one liners in this. Not a bad thing, not a bad thing at all.

We need to return to an era where villains could look like this

Honestly didn’t know who Nancy Allen was before Robocop. What a cast.
