Film 100 (WOO!!!!) in the “1001 Films to See Before You Die” Challenge is 1987’s “RoboCop”. Woo!! 100 films watched! Only 901 to go! And what better way to celebrate than watch a robotic police officer be a bad ass in Old Detroit! I sat through the film watching it and it just flew by. 98 minutes well spent! At no point was I bored with any part of the film. In short, I really enjoyed this. From getting to see RoboCop come to life and take it’s first steps to all the action scenes. Let’s just say that would defiantly recommend this than the 2014 remake! That one wasn’t very good and looked at things this one didn’t really look into too much! More specifically, RoboCop’s family. Yes, he had a wife and son but we don’t really care when watching this. They’re not really involved in the plot all that much. Quite frankly, I don’t even remember than. There was one scene from this film that I had scene on a countdown show on YouTube was the scene where Emil drives into a tank of toxic waste and becomes a horrible looking creature. I remembered that scene but had no idea that it was in this film. I thought it was in one of the sequels so it was nice to see it in full. When I was a kid, I use to think that the guy who played RoboCop, Peter Weller, was actually played by Arnold Schwarzenegger! I don’t know why. Maybe it was because Arnie had been a Terminator and I thought he would continue being a robot in other robot like films. Enough rambling, if you have seen this film, or any of the sequels, or the 2014 remake with Joel Kinnaman (best known for playing Stephen Holder in the Netflix TV Series “The Killing”) then let me know what you thought of it in the comments. Here is what I had to say while watching 1987’s “RoboCop”. Now it’s time for me to celebrate 100 films and Christmas at the same time!!!
