Zillaman, I am just a bit underwhelmed at the look so far. I love the original, even as cheesy as it looks today. It just seems to me all the remakes go for a darker, grittier look, and lose a lot in translation. The original Robocop was a dark movie, but also had a lot of just simplem fun moments. It even had some really good touching moments, like when Robo went to his old house and had flashbacks about his life before.

Will they, the producers, do that kind of thing or just go for all-out action and forget any sense or heart? So far, most remakes have not been anywhere near their original counterpart and have been poorly done.

Total Recall anyone?? Bad bad remake.

I love how people make all these old movies out to be like they were these heartfelt and touching movies and instant classics and made perfectly.

What I find most interesting about all of us as whole, is that we forget that we all have different perceptions. Different likes and dislikes. As we grow up we find our taste change. Hell how many of have watched a movie form childhood only to realize it sucked. Right now I'm going to reserve judgement on this film. Wasn;t huge fan of the black (because it really did remind of Nolan's Batman crap, but the new silvery look is kinda cool. I will see this just like all the rest of the genre stuff we love and make decision from there.

MrJaw, I never believe ANY movie is perfect. The original Robocop had its flaws and I even mentioned is cheesy, but it was a film of its time, and that time was the UltraViolent 80's! Its "humor" worked simply because it was a product of that time. Its darkness was based in that time period. Some movies worked because of their TIME, almost as much as the movie itself.

Red Dawn, which was not a great movie, was a GOOD movie of the 80's because of the time it was made and the situation it was based on. The remake can't work simply because we don't have the same threat. Red in Red Dawn referred to the Soviets. Red in the remake means nothing, because the North Koreans are NOT a threat, at least not in the way it's being depicted in the remake.

I have problems with certain remakes becasue the films they remake are dependent on the time period they were made, in some ways, and is what worked so well then. Some remakes work because the story can be updated without too much loss.

Vermithrax, I brought up the exact same point about "red" and the Soviets in another article a little while back.  There's just no way this remake can evoke the same emotions that the original did back during the Cold War.

BTW, referring to Red Dawn

Your right Omega, the black armor looked like some Nolan batman/ironman gear, the new siler armor is better looking, the first step toward the old robo armor. Maybe they read the bad comments and changed it. And yes Vermithrax and VT, not many remakes are as good as there origanals, I think Red Dawn will be one of them.

Can't understand all this negativity for a few candid shots. I'd think everyone could at least hold judgment until they see a trailer with all the proper lighting and camera and any added CGI.

Nobody is complaining like this on the candid shots from Thor 2.
