Anyone care? I don't understand how this kinda crappy movie elevated to cult status and why they are making a new version.

I can't really answer that first part, but the second part is logical. I mean, they're remaking everything these days. Apparently everybody ran out of ideas and they're just going with cheap shots.

The Total Recall remake comes out soon, and now I hear about RoboCop. Are they remaking all of Paul Paul Verhoeven's movies? What's next? Basic Instinct? Starship Troopers? Ugh.

Yeah, but in my mind, Robocop ranks up there with a Weekend at Bernie's"

Just a movie that, when it came out, was ok. Not worthy of a revival.

In its day RoboCop was a groundbreaking film. The melting guy was some seriously over-the-top gruesome shit for a Hollywood movie in 1987. I like it to this day. The ED-209 robot was some crazy shit.

That being said, it really seems like this remake is a cash grab. RoboCop was not just a movie, it was a movie, two sequels, an animated kid's cartoon which was really a 30-minute commercial for RoboCop toys.

This will keep happening as we age: every generation's tv shows and movies will be remade, one at a time, over and over, every ten to twenty years.

I wonder if, now that he croaked, someone will make an Andy Griffith movie. Maybe Ron Howard will consult. Jay Baruchel will play Don Knotts. It will fail.

I wouldn't say no to a Starship Troopers remake. That movie was great. Absolutely ridiculous, but great craic anyhow.

The best thing about a Starship Troopers remake would be that Denise Richards most likely won't be in it. So I say go!
