One of the great pleasures of following genre cinema is the long, enduring onscreen conversation that’s taken place between movie directors from the East and the West, a creative push and pull which has resulted in some of the most boundary-pushing, inventive and important films ever made. When Akira Kurosawa wrote The Hidden Fortress, an airy homage to the John Ford Westerns he loved so much, he can’t have predicted its rollicking adventuring would be re-interpreted and sent into space by George Lucas to form the basis of the most successful film franchise in history in Star Wars: A New Hope. Similarly, when Ringo Lam took the tropes of 70’s Eurocrime and American gangster movies of the 30s and 40s, and upped the machismo and »
Released at a time before there was a new superhero film hitting screens every five minutes, Paul Verhoeven’s RoboCop was bold, bloody, and downright spectacular. The same can be said of the new documentary RoboDoc: The Creation of RoboCop, which… Continue Reading →

Amongst the strewn body parts and an abundance of blood squibs is a production that very few would describe as merry. RoboDoc is the ultimate dedication to the 1987 classic and its less revered sequels.
It is clear this is a passion project that is made by fans, for fans, with interviews from more or less everyone in the cast and crew.
There is, of course, the noticeable absence of Peter Weller but with archived material it appears this has had very little impact on the project with the trailer leaving us in a sheer state of excitement.

July of 2017 marks the 30th anniversary of the release of Robocop as the film was launched on July 17, 1987. This cyberpunk action film was a huge success when it was released and it prompted a franchise that included a remake, two serials, a television series, and a wide range of Robocop related merchandise. When the film was first released, it received fantastic critical acclaim. It was particularly praised for the diversity of the issues covered in the film. These included corruption, privatization, media influence, greed, gentrification, capitalism, human nature, identity, authoritarianism, and dystopia. Paul Verhoeven directed the original

This year marks the 30th anniversary of one of the greatest movies ever made, Paul Verhoeven’s RoboCop. Even to this day, we’ve yet to see anything like it, and the concept to use crude robot technology in the future gives it a wicked post-apocalyptic aesthetic. It’s a goddamn masterpiece that also possesses one of the […] »

RoboDoc looks to be an exhaustive lookback at the making of RoboCop. Here's the trailer...
30 years after its original release, the promised documentary looking into the making of RoboCop is nearly complete. Boasting interviews with over 90 of the original cast and crew, including director Paul Verhoeven, we’re promised a feature-length retrospective of the film.
An extended trailer for the documentary has been released, which throws in an awful lot of behind the scenes footage, as well as quite detailed input from people behind the scenes. The film will also look at the extended franchise too.
The only key figure who doesn’t seem to appear in RoboDoc is Peter Weller, and instead, archive interviews with him have been weaved into the material.
Here’s the trailer for RoboDoc…
RoboDoc is set for release later this year. »

The epic sized documentary and oral history of Paul Verhoeven's 'Porno-Violent American Jesus' picture, 1987's Robocop gets an equally epic sized 5 minute trailer. This project was a KickStarter funded effort from a couple years ago by Dead Mouse Productions and has continually grown in scope over its development process. It appears that the creative team behind it have wrestled all the interviews and multimedia to the ground enough to cut the first trailer, which of course clocks in over five minutes! Shoot-from-hell anecdotes, political satire, and other topics abound, and I am confident the documentary feature will be touring the festival circuit in short order upon its completion. This retrospective covers the making of RoboCop and its sequels as well as the cultural...

In 1987, director Paul Verhoeven blew away audiences with an ultraviolent sci-fi film called “RoboCop,” which shows a cop in a dystopian Detroit who is killed and then brought back to life as a robot policemen. Beneath the ridiculous gore was a smart script that sharply satirized corporate America and the glorification of brute force to uphold public order. In honor of the film’s 30th anniversary, here’s some trivia you might not have known courtesy of TheWrap and IMDb. According to an article on The Dissolve, screenwriter Edward Neumeier first came up with the idea for RoboCop while working on. »

Monday marks the official thirtieth anniversary of the 1987 classic, and Alamo Drafthouse is using RoboCop's birthday to unveil some good news. Director Paul Verhoeven’s film is returning to theaters for a one-night event that will feature RoboCop himself, actor Peter Weller.

The classic, ultra violent action film turns 30 years old on July 17th. With the 30th anniversary of RoboCop fast approaching, THR caught up with actor Kevin Page to talk about one of the film’s most brutal scenes. Page, 26-years-old at the time, played the unlucky character Mr. Kinney, an executive who is gruesomely gunned down […] »

It was a visit to the cafeteria over lunch where the special effects crew on RoboCop found what they needed to make one of the most violent deaths in the 1987 sci-fi classic as gruesome as director Paul Verhoeven imagined.
The estimated 200 blood squibs (small one-way charges) strapped onto then-26-year-old Kevin Page to make it appear his character, Omni Consumer Products (Ocp) junior executive Mr. Kinney, was being decimated by the tremendous firepower of the enormous robot police officer Ed-209 weren't enough for the director with eccentric taste.
The inventive solution? The lunch special: Spaghetti squash.

When you hear the name Paul Verhoeven you can’t help but think of Showgirls. Then of course he has other, beloved (some would say classic) movies like Basic Instinct, RoboCop, and Total Recall. Elle is quite a jump from these movies, but the question that will be asked is, is it a Basic Instinct or a Showgirls? The answer is something very, very, different.
When Michèle Leblanc (Isabelle Huppert) is attacked in her own home, she surprisingly carries on like nothing has happened. The head of a successful video game company, she treats her life and relationships as ruthlessly as she does her business deals. When her attacker continues to goad her though it isn’t long before her obsession with him, »

Review by Stephen Tronicek
People watching Okja will probably find themselves confused and angry. The same could be said about those walking out of Transformers: The Last Knight. The difference is Okja actually wants you to be confused and angry and you shouldn’t take it any other way. What Bong Joon Ho and his group of actors and screenwriters have created is a lopsided film that itself justifies its own lopsidedness, throwing its audience into waters of at one moment discomfort and the another hilarity. Okja, much like the animal at its center is a big, brash, thing of beauty, that can’t help but be loved.
Okja concerns itself with Mija (An Seo Hyun), a young girl who has grown up raising one of supposedly 26 Superpigs, Okja, for the corporation Mirando. However, the ten year period is up now and Mirando wants to harvest, ready to supply the »
