After watching Robotrix it’s not shock to me that this film was released in 1991, if anything could be described as the remnants of the creativity of movies like Robocop and The Terminator. There is no hiding the fact that the movie is softcore porn and could lovingly hug the word sexploitation, because this is a perfect example of it though surprisingly an example that actually works.
Robotrix is somewhat crazy in nature, and some would say that is a description of the acting, or lack of it.

Twenty years ago tonight, Fox debuted a strange little show called "The X-Files." Its stars were virtually unknown — Gillian Anderson was only 24 when the pilot was filmed, and if you recognized David Duchovny at all, it was either as the cross-dressing FBI agent from "Twin Peaks" season 2 or as the man who read letters at the start of every episode of "Red Shoe Diaries" — and the format was an odd mash-up of science-fiction and police procedural, as FBI partners Mulder (the believer) and Scully (the skeptic) traveled the country investigating reports of paranormal activity.

Controversy magnet Lars Von Trier has unveiled the first official look at his upcoming film "Nymphomaniac" on the film's website. The photo, a "porn-inspired tableau" to use some of THR's flowery language, features the film's game cast in a bunch of almost-compromising positions, none of which would be out of place on an episode of "Red Shoe Diaries."
For instance, in the lower left of the "Nymphomaniac" photo, there's a shirtless Shia Labeouf acting as handy man while a young woman straddles his body; an overflowing bottle of champagne sits bubbling over to the couple's left. In the middle, Willem Dafoe is shown with a coffee stain on his pants; a young woman kneels before him to clean it off. Stars Charlotte Gainsbourg and Uma Thurman, meanwhile, both appear with their legs spread in different places within the frame. (As previously noted, the film will only feature simulated sex and »
