We constantly get our hopes up for upcoming movies... and then they let us down. It's easy to get sucked into the hype cycle, as people talk up their projects — but sometimes, you can tell just from the way people talk about a film that it's probably not going to work. Here are eight key phrases that usually indicate…
This was a tough year for movies and television — we had the weakest box office summer in years, and TV ratings were anemic. Tons of huge, vaunted projects stumbled, and some underdogs thrived. Here are the top 10 lessons we hope the entertainment industry has learned this year.
Ever since Star Wars, the special effects industry has taken us to amazing new worlds and recharged our sense of wonder. It's also grossed us the frak out. Exploding heads, severed limbs, strange mutilations... Here are the 20 most disgusting special effects of all time. Warning: NSFW!
RoboCop's ED-209 stands proudly over a flaming wreckage in GTA IV. Hopefully GTA V will have (at least) the same level of modding support on PC—giving up all this crazy cool stuff would be a real shame. This one was made veteran modder JulioNIB; there's videos and screenies below, and you can download the mod here.
Hot Toys have, I'm going to assume, gone back in time to 1987, captured Peter Weller, brought him back to 2014, shrunk him down and put him in a box. That's the only explanation I can think of as to why this new toy looks so damn perfect.
Was this version of Robocop in the new movie? Why wasn't he featured in the ad campaign? It reminds me of cylons and the conquered heroes in Grant Morrison's Final Crisis. Check out the full gallery of Threezero's super-articulated, light-up Robocop EM-208 figure below:
Hogap Lee is a brilliant sculptor. Kotaku has profiled his work before (remember this Dead Space piece?). Lee's latest work is a RoboCop statue, fittingly called "Murphy." It is fantastic.
Funko seemingly announces a new batch of toys every day. This time it's the blind-boxed Science Fiction Mystery Minis, featuring characters from Robocop, Predator, and more:
NECA just announced its new toy line based on the 1993 video game Robocop vs. The Terminator:
This weekend, we'll all be watching giant robots turn into trucks and dinosaurs, and it'll be like fireworks for your brain. But robots can do more than just throw down — they can make us question the nature of existence. Here are 12 mindblowing indie movies about robots that you could watch instead of Transformers.
Shawn Thorsson, master props builder and costume maker, has outdone himself this time with a life-size, movie-quality replica of RoboCop's ED-209.
As part of the public service campaign, Robocop is doing his part to nab unsavoury perverts on Japanese trains. Your move, creep!
How much property damage could one cybernetic cop possibly do? Quite a lot, it turns out.
The Robocop remake, out in theaters today, is a pitch-perfect, badass update of a movie that is practically legendary. As if that weren't surprising enough, it also manages to revive that lost art of the 80s: the smart B-movie that stumbles a bit but still goes where blockbusters fear to tread.
Didn't we just go through this with Morgan Freeman? Look, this is even worse. If there is one black guy you do not want to confuse for another black guy, it is Samuel L. Jackson, because he will not let your ass off the hook.
I don't know what movie the CinemaSins guy watched to come up with seven minutes' worth of problems, but it couldn't have been the original Robocop — the movie is perfect.
Come quietly, or there will be beans. Well, there will be beans either way.
