In this episode that you’d almost certainly buy for a dollar, Brian and Nathan dive into one of the all time greats: Robocop. In Paul Verhoeven’s action masterpiece, audiences are offered a vision of a broken and bankrupted Detroit, a world on the brink of nuclear war, and a society exploited by soulless corporations. Luckily, nothing like our own world. Enter Robocop: a police officer gunned down in the line of duty then resurrected through the use of advanced cybernetic technology, a modern Christ metaphor who walks on water and cleans up the streets by shooting bad guys in the dick. Simultaneously a brilliant satire and a genuinely entertaining action movie in its own right, Robocop has left an indelible, bloody mark on cinema history. So join us as we explore this classic film, but just make sure to come quietly or there will be… trouble.
