Thoughts on the Robocop remake
By now, everybody should know about the Robocop remake, right?
Well, just want to write down my thoughts on it quickly…
While I don`t doubt that Padhilla can make a good action movie, I cringe at the fact that someone thought it a good idea to remake/reboot Robocop. Instead of coming up with something new, Hollywood is drowning in remakes and reboots.
I don`t need to write much about that, it`s evident for everybody.
In case of Judge Dredd, it was a good idea, cuz the Stallone version was a watered down desaster.
Can`t wait to see it.
But Robocop? A cornerstone of Sci-Fi? A masterpiece like that needs no remake or reboot.
What an insult..as if Robocop 3 wasn`t enough. While I certainly will watch the new Robocop(not in the theatre), I `m sure I won`t be able to shake the dislike of something so unnecessary.
There were a lot of cheap knock off DTVs, at least they didn`t call themselves Robocop. Knock offs of populat films are to be expected and some of them are fun. Variations of a basic idea. I get that. But to insult a classic like Robocop should remain untouched..move on, try to show me something else. I know it`s tough, after 100 years of cinema, to come up with original material, but please..leave a few icons alone. I´m curious to see how it does at the box office.
Will teens of today embrace a new Robocop? How many of the older generation will pay to see a new Robo?
Hope it tanks, bad.
Let`s hope nobody will try this with the Terminator.
