Blu-ray Reviews: Robocop 2 and Robocop 3 Collector’s Editions

6 April 2017 2:32 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Let me get this out of the way up front: I think Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 sci-fi action classic, RoboCop, is a perfect film. With its mix of brilliant social satire, comic book action, dystopian sci-fi, and insane violence—a brilliant blend of ’80s aesthetics, Ed Neumeier and Michael Miner’s sharp script, a perfect cast, and Paul Verhoeven’s particular brand of genius/madness. It is the kind of movie that cannot really be reproduced… though two sequels and a 2014 remake certainly gave it a shot. That each came up short in different ways comes as no surprise. It only offers proof of the original movie’s magical alchemy.

Though they are disappointing in comparison to RoboCop, both of its initial sequels—1990’s RoboCop 2, directed by Irvin Kershner, and the Fred Dekker-helmed RoboCop 3 from 1993—attempt to replicate different aspects of the original and are not without some amount of charm, »

Blu-ray Review – RoboCop 3: Collector’s Edition (1993)

25 March 2017 2:20 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

RoboCop 3: Collector’s Edition, 1993.

Directed by Fred Dekker.

Starring Robert John Burke, Nancy Allen, Rip Torn, John Castle, Jill Hennessy, C.C.H. Pounder, Mako Iwamatsu, Robert DoQui, and Bruce Locke.

Synopsis:

Shout! Factory has released a Collector’s Edition of RoboCop 2, so it’s not a surprise that they did the same for the third installment, which ended the series with a whimper, rather than a bang. Fans, though, will appreciate the nice audio-visual presentation, as well as the included bonus features.

Sometimes a movie, no matter how successful it is, doesn’t really need a sequel. Or the filmmakers may end up exploring all their premise has to offer after two installments. Of course, such considerations bear just about zero weight in Hollywood, where every studio needs as many franchises as it can handle. And sometimes those movie franchise ends up like the fast food franchises that sell the same bland stuff to everyone. »

RoboCop 2

11 March 2017 5:15 PM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

It’s ugly, it’s violent, it’s graphic novelist Frank Miller’s nasty vision through and through. Scream Factory’s Collector’s Edition brings out the amazing backstory of the production of this stop-motion- intensive first sequel to RoboCop. Druglord Caine is a menace, but we’re just as appalled by the film’s vivid depiction of a greater terror: Predatory Privatization.

RoboCop: how its Pov shots make the film a classic

7 March 2017 8:35 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Mar 9, 2017

In RoboCop, we see death and resurrection through Murphy's eyes. Here's how its Pov sequences create such a timeless movie...

"Well, he signed a release form when he joined the force. He's legally dead. We can do pretty much what we want to him."

Articles probably ought to begin with a punchy, attention-grabbing argument, so here's one: RoboCop's an underrated film. As financially successful as it was, as oft-quoted it is by its legion fans,  and despite all the sequels, the TV spin-off and the 2014 reboot, the brilliance of its filmmaking is still easily overlooked. Why? Because RoboCop's writing, direction, acting and design all slip together so seamlessly that singling out exactly why the film works so well.
