Movie Movie Podcast #52: Keep the Train Mowing

So I call this one episode 53 right at the beginning, which is incorrect (obviously), and the call kind of go off the rails with a lot of technical difficulties. We talked about not even putting this one up, but there’s one good joke in it that’s worth the other painful time listening. Join Peter, Russ, Alex and myself as we talk about The Wind Rises, Robocop, The Monuments Men and The Lego Movie. Recorded on February 26th 2014.

This Should Wrap Up Our RoboCop Reboot Coverage

We’ve been bouncing back and forth with our interest in the reboot of ‘Robocop.’ A real strong cast has excited us. A director struggling to make the movie he wants has frightened us. Through it all we’ve kept saying- “Wait for the suit. The suit is whats most important.” Now we have the suit, and it’s shit.

Granted this is just a set pic, I still really hate the design. Maybe there will be things added digitally, but still, I think I’m done caring about this film.

Robocop just put itself back on my radar kinda

Just a few days ago Peter wrote about how Hugh Laurie dropped out as the villain in the Robocop reboot and how the foreign director Jose Padhila is having an awful time working within the studio system.  Well I’m sure this movie is going to be a trainwreck, but it’s going to be a trainwreck with Michael Keaton.   Michael Keaton is replacing Hugh Laurie in the soon-to-be-filmed Robocop film.

I like that.  Haven’t seen him as a villain since Extreme Measures, so theres 15 year olds who have no idea he can do bad just as well as he can be awesome and good.

We Should Stop Taking The Robocop Reboot Seriously

It was really only a matter of time. After a few months of incredible casting news that included Omar, Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, and the now off the film Hugh Laurie, the ‘Robocop’ news is turning sour. Who could have guessed it would be about the films foreign director having trouble dealing with Hollywood?

WE’RE SUPPOSED TO BE TAKING THE ROBOCOP REMAKE SERIOUSLY? Pt. 2

I guess the answer is yes.

Last week after Peter posted about the Robocop remake and the fact that Samuel L. Jackson signed on as a media mogul and Gary Oldman, as the man who puts the Robo in Joel Kinnaman’s Cop, it looks like they’ve gone ahead and cast the villain.  Hugh Laurie.  Doctor House.  I think this is a good piece of casting.  He’s been good in mostly everything he’s been in, including his Dr. Sherlock show, so I think he’s got the chops to pull this off.  Also, now that House is over, he can finally start acting in films as more than just a secondary or tertiary character.  Within the next two years I can almost bet that Hugh Laurie and Bryan Cranston will be snapping up every 50 year old man role in Hollywood after crushing it on tv for the better part of the last decade and I can’t think of two actors more deserving of some great roles.

While I still find this film utterly unnecessary, they’ve gotten my 14 bucks now.

Wait, Were We Suppose To Be Taking The Robocop Remake Seriously?

I don’t get it. I thought the Robocop remake was a huge pile of disappointment? A film that would be talked about forever, look like crap, get delayed, reshot, post 3D, conversion, and come out in January as a complete bust

But wait! Samuel L. Jackson cometh.
