Hmmm, I just don't know about this. Trailer looks good but I hate the new look for Robocop, I'm sorry black just does not work. I guess I'll have to reserve judgement till it comes out but I honestly don't think I'll be going to see this in theaters.

From the way they have the trailer. I assume he will be in black the last part of the film... the "final showdown" at least. He probably gets jacked up somehow by the man antagonist and they have to repair him and make him better in cliche like fashion.

I like the trailer. It pays homage to the original Robocop design, but the all black look is a bit too ninja for me. lol. I do like that he is much more mobile.. hes not walking around like a tank.

"This film is not yet rated" but its already been stated to be PG-13 instead of R.

 

I'm still skipping this because of that & the generic black armor.

 

....

 

Hmm....

 

Now I want to see yellow spandex for no real reason beside it not being some generic black outfit.

I think back is the better colour for what he is,

Black is a colour associated with tactical squads / special divisions of law enforcement like SWAT.

 

 

 

H now seems more cyborg then robot, which i think will be peoples biggest gripe 

Alex died, and was re-animated as a cyborg, more machine then man, and learnt humanity again

 

this take seems to be more cyborg, that is essentially an augmented human, human feelings with a programmable body, 

 

 

Personally i don't think the film needed to be remade, but that doesn't mean it will suck,. it will be entertaining at least.

I look forward to it, 

Back when robocop was made in the 80's people could barly fathom the idea of touch screen, 3d imagining or even flat screens.

 

I am curious to the take of the future this film will have.

Personally I think he should be more mobile, stronger faster and smarter. Why does he need 3 inch layers of steel to be bullet proof when new compounds of metal can be 5mm thick and more resistant,

Less walking tank more walking arsenal.  :)

I'll go see it. 

 

Wish it wasn't PG-13 and was R, like Dredd which was fun even though it was like The Raid. 

 

Combat armor's black the silver one. Stealth is black. 

 

Big difference in plot is how he dies and how that affects the character and the movie's intent. In the original, Murphy is tortured, shot at, and eventually murdered with a bullet to the head. He was a cop all this while. Traumatic. As Robocop he suffers PTSD and that shows the human element and depth in his character. 

 

In the new movie, he's home chilling and his car explodes. Looks like the company did that to him on purpose to experiment on him, maybe he gets back to them when he finds out they did this to him and probably other cops who've been experimented on/ died in the process and he seeks revenge.

I'm guessing they needed to change his transformation to fit the new plot. If anything, I think thats good, because how they did the first Robocop was great, just like Pchan described. If they tried to recreate that traumatic experience and didn't accomplish it, the reboot would be a failure.

Very good point. Its more like hes a super soldier as opposed to being a robotic cop. The fact that he retains a human hand really emphasizes his humanity over machinery to me.

The whole problem with black though is its an over used color scheme. Even worse when it replaces the original color schemes that would've stood out more.

 

We can't have a Blue, Gray, &/or  Yellow outfit Batman.... Nope we can only get black outfit Batman.

We couldn't (originally) have the X-Men in Blue & Yellow or any of their original color schemed outfits. Just a bunch of Black Leather Suits.

And forbid that no one in The Matrix not remind us of The Trench Coat Mafia.

 

So having Robocop follow along with this doesn't sit well with me at all. Even if someone were to label this as practical the whole point of any of these (Super) Heroes isn't to really be practical in the first place.

 

If they were practical

Superman would wear all black as black absorbs heat from sunlight more easily.

Spider-Man fighting at night would have an all black outfit with a hard to see Spider Logo if there was a Spider Logo at all.

Tony Stark would have remotely controlled his new Iron-Man suits in every situations.

Thor would have never been cast out of Asgard because this time around he was too practical to get into trouble.

Any Super Hero (or Villain) wearing the colors of their country as their color scheme would be replaced by camouflage.

Kick Ass, Big Daddy, & Hit Girl would have easily been replace by SWAT Teams.

 

Even being "Practical" by using Military Forces in movies has caused movies to probably be less exciting then they could have been.

Godzilla 1998 (even though my favorite looking Godzilla) suffered from the use of Military Forces. They should've gone with a Mecha Godzilla 1998. That could have been a much better movie.

Cloverfield suffered from similar problems but with the added annoyance of a bunch of pricks from a party.

Michael Bay's Transformers.... Yeesh.... The Military Forces Had / Has the ability to destroy Decepticons without the need for Autobots to be there.

 

Maybe that's why we can't get a Gundam movie on the big screen. Someone is going to want it to be practical. RX-78-2 (If that's the Gundam they use) wouldn't be able to have its color scheme or its roll out color scheme. It would have to have either a camouflage color on earth or be black since that's basically the camouflage color of space. Then they would probably change it to a Mobile Armor since a Mobile Suit isn't as practical. By the time it was done making practical changes it would be like the Battleship movie.

 

No wonder I had the urge to defend Pacific Rim. Pacific Rim being impractical is what made it fun.

 

So once this Practical Robocop comes out I honestly & hopefully expect it to bomb. Because practicality is what ruins these (super hero like) movies.

Very good point, well said.

 

I never liked the black outfits in the X-Men movies. I wanted them to be their original color schemes, except made out of good materials that would be somewhat practical.

I wouldn't necessarily call it Somewhat Practical, but more along the lines that it would be impossible for most (if not all) real humans to pull off wearing tights with enough muscle mass to be on steroids & still be able to act.

 

The only characters that can pull off wearing tights IMO is probably Spider-Man, Superman, & anyone else who looked lean while wearing tights. Because those characters never needed massive muscles to define who they are in any shape or form.

 

If Marvel ever gets X-Men back I would only expect their outfits get the same quality of treatment like Captain America's outfit did in Avengers.

Yes. Thats more of what I was thinking too. Another costume upgrade over tights occurred in the old Power Rangers movie. They kept the general design and colors of the power rangers outfits, but instead of having a bunch of people running around in tights, they were upgraded to a kind of plastic storm trooperish armor. I'd have rather seen that or a captain america style outfit for the x-men instead of black leather.

 

Red hurts my eyes.

HOLY SHIT, it worked! ALL BLACK! Can that be done where I can pick the background colors or a theme? 

 

No. Its not an option with our current setup. The only theme that strips away all colors and fonts is the mobile theme.

A lot of people are bitching its going to be PG-13... seriously... things that were rated R in the 80s and 90s are PG-13 today and it doesn't really enhance the movie any more or less based on these two ratings. The original had nudity in it... the new one wont but all the violence will be intact and that's what everyone cares about. People can be so ignorant. R rated films are reserved for heavy sexual themes and horror flicks with excessive gore. What excessive gore is now is way more extreme than back then.

As long as the movie isn't "Extreme Violence" then just about any action movie with murder and killing can be a PG-13 movie now. Hell.. look at Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead.. those are on basic cable and both of these series would have been completely unacceptable on TV when I was a kid. If they were movies, they'd have been R rated and probably petitioned against for their excessive gore back in the day.

 

As far as I'm concerned R rated movies now a days either include sexually related nudity or excessive gore like Evil Dead and Saw. Kids watch The Walking Dead.. I've seen twitter pictures of kid's drawings of Daryl killing walkers. If children watch Walking Dead and then make crayola drawings of it, then the rating scales of tv shows and movies are all completely off anyway.

I don't know, something still bugs me about this RoboCop. Don't get me wrong I'm liking the action sequences in the trailers but I just don't like this RoboCop, the black just turns me off of this design and what they're doing with the character just bugs me.

 

Then again I didn't think I'd like the new Dredd movie but I ended up loving it so maybe I'll like this.

As long as there are more over the top scenes than what is being shown in the trailer, I'm good... If that's all the best scenes and the rest of the movie is meh, I'll be pissed. I hate when trailers do that.

After watching that trailer, his human hand seems like it would be his biggest weakness. Considering how heavy his body is and the acrobatic maneuvers he was doing, I don't see how his human hand could withstand the weight and impact of everything that was going on.

I had mixed feelings about the new Dredd movie. I finally watched it a couple months ago and all the slow motion scenes seemed almost unnecessary. Sure the drug was causing that affect and in some use of it made sense. Other than that, it was a good dark action movie. I never read any of the comics and I've seen the previous Dredd movie.. The Stallone version must have been way off from the comics compared to the new movie. Drastically different compared to Stallone's Dredd.

      Although its also on the PS4, I purchased Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana for the Switch recently because it's just been collecting dust. It was probably the better option anyways because the graphics look like something out of the N64/PS2 era with modern draw rates. Not a knock against it, as its quite charming... but the game looks like it belongs on the Switch rather than PS4. Everything about this game is so 1998. I've never played any of the Ys games before, but this one caught my eye for the old school hack and slash. It's very Dark Cloud-ish minus the world building. Sprinkle some old Zelda in there as well. The combat is relatively simple with 1 button main attack, and 4 special attacks that consist of holding R1 and pressing A B Y X. These use a SP meter that replenishes on kills. There are also dodge and block counters that give you a special speed combo ability. You have a party of 3, and characters that join where you can swap them out and swap between the three in combat. Each character has a assigned damage type (Slash, Precise, Bash). Having all 3 types helps weaken the right enemies susceptible to these plus you get a rare drop bonus... rather than the 1.1x bonus for having two of the same. Anyways, the story is campy but interesting, the dialogue is 90's cringeworthy, and its a lazy sprinkle of actual voice acting and text reading. The world is  large but a bunch of sectioned off instances that quickly load without a loading screen as you cross them. There are fast travel points but not in every sector, so it requires some old school memorizing where to go at times. As you get special gear, you'll find places that were inaccessible previously open up. I'm 20 hours in and I don't feel like I'm even half way through. So at $60, I feel like I'm getting my money's worth for a decent nostalgia kick. I bet this will be a free PS Plus game next year so when it comes up I highly recommend it without even finish it. I'll report back when I beat it with a proper review.

      Its been quite the stressful couple weeks. Lady had her surgery and is having a very slow recovery process. My bank required specific repairs to the garage to approve the mortgage and instead of paying a massive price to a contractor me and my friend spent 2 days this last weekend busting our asses in 90 degree days with 90% humidity and full sun working on the garage. Thats all done and accepted now.. Yay. Getting into the final stretch here with the house. Hopefully I'll be moving by the end of the month. I might actually have free time this weekend... finally. *knocks on wood*

      The first two eps of AoT season 3 are better than season 2 in its entirety.

      Originally I wasn't going to say anything until I actually finished watching the series (which should be Monday or Tuesday night) but you were right DX, The Ancient Magus' bride is spectacular and I say this after only watching 15 episodes.
      I have to say it's up there with Violet Evergarden for both visuals and story (and it's been awhile since I've seen a show that has completely drawn me in to the point that I sacrifice sleep just to watch another episode). I honestly didn't think the premise would suck me in this much but I'm glad it did (and both episodes with Nevin were extremely well done (I shed some manly tears they were so emotionally impacting)).
      I honestly have to say this is probably going down as one of my favorites shows from the last few years (which isn't really hard considering my problems with the last few seasons), only taking second to the masterpiece that was Violet Evergarden. I can't recommend this show enough for those who want a story driven show focused on character development and world building (I'm just sad I only have 8 episodes and 3 OVA's left, really hope this gets another season once the manga gets further along).

      This simuldub season is pretty meh compared to last. If it wasn't for the fact that MHA and out of all things; Black Clover was still running. I'd be hard pressed to keep up. Ep 1 of Overlord season 3 felt like a waste of time, but the second one made things pretty interesting. Angels of Death seems kind of bland so far. How not to Summon a Demon Lord is a typical fanservice trapped in a video game world show. Same goes for The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar. Lord of Vermilion feels like a better Tokyo Majin.. which isn't saying much. Hopefully it will be something better. Harukana Receive is bouncy bikini beach volley ball, but Haruka is a total best girl, so I'll shamelessly enjoy it. On the opposite end, I'll skip Free! because I'm not watching a bunch of dudes swim, and I'm already watching HR and Hanebado... an anime about freakin Badminton. With Dies Irae and AoT not staring until later in the month that leaves three unlikely contenders for a surprise best in season for me, that isn't Overlord or AoT which I already expect to be solid at worst.
      Magical Girl Raising Project is apparently a dark ass violent series with cute moe magic girls. A total clash of genres. The first two eps only have brief hints at it so far, its mostly just cutesy. But if it turns out like I think it has the potential too. It should be pretty interesting.
      Chio's School Road is a "school" anime thats about Chio's walk to school every day, instead of the actual school day. The absolute absurd happens apparently every time. The first three eps have been pretty hysterical so far. Its different, so I like it.
      Island is a pretty big mystery to me as to what its suppose to be about. It has my interest to see how it unfolds. It can honestly go either way. I guess I'll be reviewing these at the end of the season and we'll see how my opinions have changed since this status update.
