08.09.08DVD For some reason it surprises me whenever anyone in the world hasn't seen Robocop. It doesn't surprise me to hear it mentioned during G4's E3 coverage like 8 times from geek fanboys who are now project leads of kickass games... so the confluence of both of these events led me to revisit this.

Surprise! It was awesome!

It's weird and F'd up but i somehow have memories of seeing this in the theater. I would've been what, 9? 8? That's pretty crazy. Maybe because it's been so long since I've sat down and watched it, it never really dawned on me how similar this was to Startship Troopers. The newscasters and television programming and consumer-dystopian future angles are all... not directly connected but definitely from the same brain. Ahh how I would cherish a Verhoeven retrospective at the alamo... but I guess they don't do retrospectives anymore (dig!).

Anyway, this was awesome. I have most of the movie burned into my brain. Thank you for your cooperation, have a nice day.
