(I'm doing this from mobile so I can't compose a poll here)

My personal answer is "Maybe"

#2 Posted by crithon (3230 posts) -

nope, Robocop is still important to me.

I might check it out. February seems like a really odd time to release it though, it could've easily competed with the other summer blockbusters this year even if it got worse reviews than it's been getting.

#5 Edited by Zevvion (1872 posts) -

No. Never cared for the original film either. Well, that's not true. I thought it was kinda neat. But as always when praise of something is so much bigger than I have for it, I tend to not care.

#6 Posted by phantomzxro (1577 posts) -

I may check it out but its more of friends may want to see it and i'll tag along. I know what i'm walking into so i'm not expecting much.

#7 Edited by Hailinel (24785 posts) -

Nope. Not giving it my money.

No, but I might buy the original on blu ray.

#9 Posted by CornBREDX (5279 posts) -

You mean one of the best action films of my child hood that I probably shouldn't have watched but did and now they're making a PG-13 version of it?

I thought about it, but no. I'll watch the original instead. It's still an awesome movie and holds up- even if a bit brutal (more so in the directors cut which extended the most brutal scenes).

The sequels are passable but I still like the second Robocop because its good cheese. The third one doesn't exist. It went to total garbage by then and really it seems no one knew what to do with it at some point but I don't have high hopes for a reboot.

I can't believe Detective Holder is the new Robocop. I might rent it.

#11 Edited by Oldirtybearon (4800 posts) -

I might see it as a curiosity. I fully expect it to be terrible which is a goddamn shame considering who directed it.

Who knows? Maybe it'll actually be really good and kick-start a gritty sci-fi satire revival. Yeah I know, stop laughing.

#12 Posted by GERALTITUDE (3320 posts) -

Detective Holder is the best part of the Killing. He has a moment in one episode where he actually slaps this evil woman in the face with a warrant. Gotta see it to believe it.

Will watch it one day.

#13 Edited by LiquidSaiyan3 (461 posts) -

I saw the new Robocop. I liked it. That is all.

#14 Edited by Brodehouse (9949 posts) -

It's the most damning indication that I've been wrong to be enthusiastic about... Life, art, western society.

Taking a satire about ignorant, violent, consumption-obsessed culture and then turning it into a stupid, violent consumer product... It's almost too perfect.

#15 Posted by Bane122 (789 posts) -

Probably not this week but hopefully next.

Robocop is one of my favorite movies of all time and, looking at this as something different and not a straight up remake, I think it looks fine.

It's not degrading the original if it sucks, after all.

#16 Posted by AMyggen (3046 posts) -

Fuck no. I will never support remakes of movies that were more or less perfect to begin with.

#17 Edited by geirr (2570 posts) -

Nah. I'll wait til it's on Netflix or something.

#18 Posted by Emperor_Norton (43 posts) -

Nope, there's already a fantastic Robocop remake available this very moment

#19 Posted by Wolfgame (742 posts) -

Don't think so, I don't go to the movies much anymore, I've tried to be more discerning about what I will sit through, I hate feeling like my time was robbed when the credits roll.

But it's kind of trampling on its legacy.

#21 Edited by crusader8463 (14422 posts) -

Nope.

#22 Edited by Doskias (307 posts) -

I have dedicated so much space in my brain to Robocop and everything to do with him that I feel like I'd be doing myself a disservice by not seeing it, no matter how terrible it may turn out to be.

If we get that crazy snow-storm we're expecting, I might see if my local theater stays open on Thursday and make my way out there.

#23 Posted by Baillie (4169 posts) -

Yeah, sure am.

#24 Edited by Vuud (1992 posts) -

I really can't get behind remakes like this. It just doesn't work because RoboCop is a product from a different era with a totally different culture.

Also I think satire is dead. And that was a big part of RoboCop.

#25 Posted by Bane122 (789 posts) -

@dudeglove: I disagree. If it turns out okay then it will stand on its own but if it's terrible then, if anything, the original will look even better by comparison.

Honestly, I'd be more bothered if it was sticking closer to the original's plot. This is how I'd prefer my movie remakes, take the base concept and do something new with it.

I loved that bit, I laughed out loud, he really redeemed himself in that episode.

Oh yeah duder I felt the same way, that episode flips a switch for the character. Kind of excited to see what Netflix does with the show when it comes back.

#28 Posted by TheRealMoot (379 posts) -

Will I watch it this week? F*CK NO!

Will I watch it ever? If it's life or death, maybe. Depends on the flavor of death i'm being offered at the time.

Robocop is my second favorite movie ever. I would not dare tarnish it's memory with this remake, which from everything I've seen and heard it's the worst thing ever conceived. Yes, I have watched Troll 2 and Birdemic and lived to tell the tale. This however, sounds worse.

#29 Edited by Apparatus_Unearth (3150 posts) -

I haven't seen the original so I'm gonna go with no.

#30 Edited by Shaunage (708 posts) -

I saw it and hated it from start to finish.

#31 Posted by MegaLombax (390 posts) -

Saw it last week and there was absolutely nothing special about it. Thought that the new Robocop was too...agile. I get that the point of a remake is to not compare it with the older version, but on its own, the new Robocop is an absolute mediocre movie.

#32 Edited by BawlZINmotion (714 posts) -

Nope. I haven't seen a movie in theatres since District 9. I can wait until it's available for home use.

His agility in the trailer really bothered me.

#34 Posted by Reisz (1497 posts) -

Of course I will! this movie won't make 1987's tour de force suddenly not exist.

#35 Posted by tourgen (4500 posts) -

Nope. Every indication is that it's a bland PG13 by-the-numbers shell of a movie cashing checks on the Robocop name. I would rather do anything else with my time than fall asleep watching this piece of shit.

I've always had this image of Robocop being this slow badass almost-indestructible death machine. Now he's just Ironman without the flying and repulsor beams.

Netflix Canada just added The Rock this week.

Fuck other movies.

#38 Posted by Tajasaurus (867 posts) -

I'll watch it eventually

I like Michael Keaton. I'm strangely optimistic.

#39 Posted by ManMadeGod (1561 posts) -

Was watching TV with my mom the other day. The commercial for this movie came on, and she says "o wow, I loved Robocop when it first came out........ Wait why is this PG13. Not seeing it".

So no, my mom is not seeing it

#40 Posted by Shaunage (708 posts) -

@tourgen: I literally did fall asleep in it.

Yep, that's a good one.

#42 Posted by GunstarRed (5182 posts) -

Nah, I might listen to the Robocop theme a bunch though.

#43 Edited by SharkEthic (1049 posts) -

Well, if we're being completely honest here, I can say with 99% certainty, that I will never, EVER see the new Robocop.

#44 Posted by tysonwritesel (90 posts) -

No, I didn't think it looked as interesting as say Spider-Man 2.

#45 Posted by AlexanderSheen (5007 posts) -

Hah, no.

#46 Posted by falserelic (5436 posts) -

I will watch it on the internet for free like I usually do.

What in the fuck is going on at the 40 minute mark!?

#48 Edited by Gatehouse (625 posts) -

I'm very tempted to. I would be going in with zero expectation, as the trailer looks utterly pants and I love the original film. But hey. I do have a thing for rubbish films and this is looks so tonally different from the original that it's barely the same thing.

#49 Posted by hwy_61 (922 posts) -

I'll catch it on a matinee, and I'll be sure to leave any memories of the original at the door.

#50 Posted by Nightriff (5082 posts) -

Nope, still haven't seen the first one
