Page Fletcher hasn't seen the RoboCop movies and no effort was made to mimic Peter Weller's RoboCop movements. Page Fletcher instead worked out a RoboCop movement system for himself that he felt was appropriate for where the character was, physically and emotionally.

my post on it from action movie poll:

robocop - what a fuckin movie. so much can be said about why it owns, but i think one underrated aspect is ronnie cox's performance as dick jones. he has so much fun with that part.

someone earlier in the thread was shittalking the production design on robocop, which is just so wrong! the production work on robocop is really intelligent and awesome. first of all, brutalist architecture in a sci-fi setting = always good. the ed209 is a great example of the thought they put into things - its deliberately absurd, evoking something built by corporate committee and made to look intimidating at the expense of practicality, with redundant hydraulics, feet that can't fit on stairs, a body modeled after the huey chopper. this is underlined the first time we meet the ed and it literally growls like a lion. and what could be more haunting than robocop without his helmet, peter weller's face lost in all that machinery - what an amazing image! weller's got some great line readings in this movie, especially "they fix everything"

also, killer ending:

i just rewatched it last year myself - its as impressive as ever. i was surprised by the pathos of scenes like shooting jars of baby food, or weller's linereading of 'they fix everything'

also great usage of ford tauruses. that was really striking to me even when i was a child, because i was so used to 80s movies where everyone drove blocky sedans, i didnt even know they had cars that looked like the taurus back then

they were going to make some crappy bad syd mead knockoff "future" cars but had no money, so went with the tauruses instead, which police cars of today better resemble. they were also going to make some cheesy holo-cube storage media for the dick jones "nyeah nyeah" message to bob norton, but also ran out of money, and used a CD instead, which blu-rays of today better resemble. sometimes cheaper is better!

as Ford learned when they tried to retire the name, there must always be a Ford Taurus anywya

Also some scenes it really looks like they took Robocop's helmet and just spray painted parts of it blue and purple.

I re-watched very recently and kept thinking, "man, these are the PERFECT cars for this movie."

you know who did have a crush on robocop was not lady bloodyskirt, but the tech who was all proud about saving his arm, then norton goes, lose the arm and she's really torn up about it, and later she gets drunk on new year's and plants a messy one on robo's visor.

Philip Nunez, Thursday, 12 April 2012 20:20 (six years ago) Permalink

Oh yeah! Robocop scoring with geek babe.

Also, Tauruses were actually cop cars, at least in my neck of the woods, during the 90s.

there’s actually a lot of interesting ideas in the remake

unfortunately none of them are intelligently explored

hi i’m darren and i’m a bouncer from bendigo (bizarro gazzara), Sunday, 26 November 2017 21:09 (ten months ago) Permalink

best ‘wtf are they thinking’ scene in the remake is when gary oldman, as the scientist who created robocop, decides to help the newly-robotic officer murphy deal with the horrific trauma of being blown up and encased in a shiny metal murder-carapace by, er, placing him in front of a mirror, opening up his chest cavity and showing him the only organic part of his new body - a nightmarish pair of vivid red pumping lungs

i am not a therapist but this seems... ill-advised

I watched the remake and thought it was totally decent but now I can't remember a damn thing about it except Michael Keaton and also the fact that its primary street antagonist was the anti-Clarence Boddicker in the worst possible sense. It's a flick made for brief goodwill store excitement and then a disgusted return to the shelf two seconds later.
