New Set Photos and Video from ROBOCOP Starring Joel Kinnaman. No.10 Big or Wallpaper Size Images, Video
I’m just going to go right out and say it, I’m not a fan at all of the new suit. It looks like everything other type of ‘futuristic body armor’ from every modern video game ever, except less cool. I know that movie studios need to do re-designs but this looks like someone tried to turn the Lamborghini Reventon into a suit, and it hasn’t worked.
I’m not going to be a dick - the film might be really good. But I hate the new suit.
(by the way, I think the Lambo Reventon looks absolutely gorgeous. But only as a car, not as a Robocop suit)
I haven’t seen the car you’re on about but totally agree with you about the suits lack of originality. Still kinda want to see this though.
It only comes in matt black, has lots of angles and stuff for aerodynamic efficiency and basically looks sexy and evil at the same time.
When you remake a movie with an iconic character you have a few options. Evil Dead left out Ash, wisely as nobody could top Bruce Campbell in the roll. Spielberg’s War of the Worlds dealt with the iconic tripods by going back to the source material and doing what couldn’t be done in the past. The dull Day the Earth Stood Still did what many remakes do and tries to update the iconic image to something recognizable but also new. There are likely better examples of all the above but the new RoboCop suit does something none of these films were dumb enough to do:
Retain the iconic image but downgrade it to something plainer, lacking the elements that make it recognizable without adding anything of merit whatsoever. Tron Legacy did it a bit, Total Recall did it a bit, but the new RoboCop suit is, barring any creative digital alterations or plot dependent purpose yet to be seen, the epitome of poor redesign.
The 283rd Regiment of Her Majesty’s Riflemen was legendary for obvious reasons.
Late in the 7th year of World War 1, the entire unit was captured by Germans and beheaded. But back in those days when men were men and gender roles were socially acceptable metaphors for physical strength, it took more than that to kill a fighting man. The unit survived by forcing food down their severed gullets and piping blood to their brains using retrofitted bilge pumps they stole from the German Navy.
The Regiment continued to fight, taking the Hills of Meinkopffiel, defeating the Cossacks at Verdun, capturing the 2nd Mini-Kaiser and more. When the war ended they were hailed as heroes and all the doctors in England pursued study of their case, learning incalculably important techniques that would later be used for kidney dialysis, head transplantation and more.
Their case also lead France to discontinue the use of the guillotine as decapitation was no longer the most certain method of execution.
“If a clock could count down to the moment you meet your soul mate, would you want to know?”
lol yes, so then i can shave.
Has anyone written a book about this yet? I think it’d be interesting!!!!!!
One minute, 37 seconds.
My legs are shaking. Holy cow, there is no way I can do this. None.
One minute, 29 secods.
I glance around at the faces surrounding the room. Of course my Meeting would take place in the gross, overcrowded cafeteria.
One minute, six seconds.
Somewhere within these four walls, someone has the exact same countdown on their wrist. They’re going through the exact same pressure as me.
Mom said I should be excited, not nervous. Yet I still find myself wiping my sweaty palms on my dress. I can’t believe she talked me into wearing a dress. I mean, shouldn’t my Soul Mate meet me as I normally am? All plain jeans, blah shirts, and wild brown curls?
Something deep within me tells me to stand up. I do, drawing the attention of my tablemates. They all know too. They smile encouragingly up at me. I chew my lip nervously.
That same feeling pulls me towards the center of the room. My stomach drops away from me as I take a step in that direction.
I continue in that direction. With each step the tempo of my heart picks up.
17. More rapid.
16. It’s racing.
Oh my god this is it. The moment my life changes forever.
My eyes search frantically around the cafeteria, searching for someone who looks as nervous as me. For someone who’s heading towards their future with no sense of direction like me.
The feeling directs me slightly to the left. I turn to accomodate.
5. My heart has given up entirely.
4. I stop walking.
3. Just waiting left.
2. Everything is about to change.
1. Deep breath.
0000 d 00 h 00 m 00 s
Someone bumps my shoulder. I twirl around and my gray eyes meet blue, blue ones.
“Hello there, love. It appears as though we’re Soul Mates then, eh?”
As my words fail me, the only thing I can think is “I’m so glad I shaved this morning.”
^^^ THIS IS AMAZING
Yeah, and a wrist band that tells you when witches are nearby,
And one that counts down to your first out of body experience,
And one that tells you the last time you saw a flying pig.
And that’s why we hack up whales.
Oh hey Kat, cool skirt you made there
Wait, what’s that pattern on it?
#JUST WHIP YOUR SKIRT OFF AND THROW IT AT THE DEMONS #HOW EMBARASSING FOR THEM #THEY WILL TRAPPED IN A FUCKING SKIRT WHILE YOU CAN STAND THERE AND LAUGH AT THEM IN YOUR PANTIES#FUCK YOU DEMONS YOU CAN SUCK MY DICK
