Can it be, my long lost search is truly over? Could I possibly have finally found an actual working copy of "Kaze Tachinu"(THE WIND RISES) to watch in Japanese? Looks as if we may have.......a winner.

One movie down through this 4-parter and, well that was a rough ride. I don't even know if I want to go on, but...guess I will. RoboCop himself might be the worst part of all. They couldn't even get the footstep sounds right! Instead of that cool thudding beat from the original films it's this lazy *CLANK*-*CLANK*-*CLANK* noise like scrap metal dropping on pavement. The costume seems to be something they got at a low-rent Halloween store. The actor looks frumpy wearing the suit and he's pretty short. He walks around with clenched fists as if he's trying to take a Robo shit but is constipated, the movements are just really bad. This guy makes Robert John Burke look like Peter Weller.

"You're BONED baby!" My God this is horrible.
YoshioKun13 updated his STATUS: 2 months ago

15 minutes in and you clearly can tell this is some real low-budget crap. So the main plot revolves around OCP installing a new AI super computer to run everything in Delta City. Yeah cause, trusting your entire life to a sentient machine always turns out well. Just ask Cyberdyne. Makes me wonder if they could have just made ROBOCOP vs. TERMINATOR out of this though I'm sure they didn't own the rights to use the latter. Even with exceedingly cheap production values I surmise it would've at least been better than.....whatever this is.

One last of bit of business to cover before I see the 2014 movie. I suppose it was inevitable, so finally I'm hitting up the ROBOCOP: PRIME DIRECTIVES made-for TV mini-series from 2001. Two of these are called "Meltdown" and "Crash & Burn". Uh-oh... Being that this was a Canadian production, depending on how it turns out I may be taking it up with my fellow MFCers Derek and Pat Hatfreet.

YoshioKun13 updated his STATUS: 2 months ago

As if 3 wasn't bad enough, I'll now be diving into what I can only assume is some truly awful ROBOCOP territory... No I don't mean the new remake, although that's coming soon enough. Talking rather about the made-for-TV PRIME DIRECTIVES 4-Part mini-series of films! Never seen 'em.

It feels half-hearted to me.

YoshioKun13 updated his STATUS: 2 months ago

The ROBOCOP series represents a grand missed opportunity I feel. After debuting with that genre-defining 1987 classic, instead of being saddled by one weak sequel after another we probably should have had a monumentally epic trilogy. One which might have gone down in the annals of legendary sci-fi cinema, alongside the likes of OT STAR WARS and ALIEN perhaps. At the heart of that masterful first effort are 3 key components - Paul Verhoeven, Peter Weller and Basil Poledouris. Only had they retained the services of this core group throughout each movie, including the original writers, I suspect that's exactly what we would have gotten.

I agree, it is very hard to mantain a core group, unless the trilogy is planned in advance...and its true, it would have been nice to have a trilogy like Star Wars,etc.

ROBOCOP 3 is somewhat of an interesting failure. I may get flogged mercilessly for saying this but, I don't think it's quite the rancid POS it's been made out to be. Ain't good though. I believe there was the framework for a good story here. OCP versus the citizens of Detroit and the cops rallying to their cause, that's a solid idea. It's just handled oh so, so...BADly. With an R-rating and competent writing this stuff could've worked, the confining restraints of PG-13 are all too evident. Corny humor, blatant pandering to kids, obvious toyetic sensibilities at play. RoboCop is basically an action figure. With that in mind I do like his gun arm & jet pack, silly but they look cool. The climactic battle to close out this movie, and the trilogy, should have been grandiose, epic, a spectacular finish. Instead, we end on a whimper and a groan. Embarrassing.

I'm going to watch it today after seeing the second one because I just need to.

YoshioKun13 at 10:03 AM Feb 15

Have you seen it before HTX?

I agree with Anakin, it's a mess but has moments of decent entertainment. There are seedlings of good ideas that unfortunately never fully blossom. And Nancy Allen looks like she wanted to get the fuck out of dodge...

HTX0811
HTX0811 at 10:55 AM Feb 16

I haven't but I just saw it yesterday and it's certainly entertaining. There are good ideas in it with Detroit being so broken down that there's now a resistance group and the whole thing with Detroit being taken over by some group from OCP to be sent to a camp but it just seems like there's too much going on or it's just not executed properly. I also liked Bradley Whitford in it and it seemed like he was going to take over the Miguel Ferrer role from the first movie but then he's gone too early. The same came be said about Nancy Allen but yeah, she doesn't look like she was thrilled to be there. lol That said, it's not the worst movie ever but the story could be improved on.

Alright Robo versus a Japanese ninja Terminator this should be fucking awesome... Oh.........nevermind.

Would have been cool.

Need to pick up Frank Miller's Robocop. It's the script in graphic novel form.

Basically combining both Robocop 2 and 3.

Some things work, some things don't.

The NPP guys also did a show covering it:

Sounds kinda iffy. Seems like we got a better ROBOCOP 2 film out of it than what his version would have given us.

YoshioKun13 updated his STATUS: 2 months ago

Wow I totally forgot there was this horrible trippy MAX HEADROOM morphing sequence.

razgriz21 at 05:48 PM Feb 14

Another reason why this movie failed.

YoshioKun13 updated his STATUS: 2 months ago

I think I've figured out the formula for this original ROBOCOP trilogy. The prettier Nancy Allen looks, the worser these movies get...

YoshioKun13 updated his STATUS: 2 months ago

Boy they really upped the humor for this one. And by that I don't mean cool dark comedy or clever satire but like light sitcom-y schtick. Only bolstered by the number of comedy people actually in this cast whom I didn't even know were in this or just don't remember. 2 guys from SEINFELD, Stephen Root, Rip Torn, Jeff Garlin, Bradley Whitford(!), Jill Hennessy... It's a veritable who's-who of 90's NBC has-beens.

Tonight, revisiting the infamously maligned three-quel. Like ROBOCOP 2 I haven't watched this movie in a long-ass time, but unlike that one I decided to skip it in theaters. Even at age 11, I just knew going from R to PG-13......can't be a good sign.
