"1942" was bad, but it's "Apocalypse Now" compared to "Battleship".

I feel bad doubting "Lone Survivor" because Peter Berg seems like a decent, thoughtful guy - patriotic as well as self-effacing (i.e. he's openly admitted responsibility for "Battleship" sucking, plus he was chill enough to mock himself in "Californication"). Unfortunately, he's a very hit-or-miss filmmaker, and his military thrillers tend to represent his biggest misses, which is disappointing given that he obviously takes the subject matter seriously and tries hard to do justice to the sacrifice of our servicemen.

The Agent Carter series got picked up.

If this should ever get made somewhere down the road, I hope it's a GTA-style sandbox game.

Last I heard it was cancelled.

The Payday series is very similar, unless you specifically want to be able to play as a screaming Vincent Hanna.

Well this ought to be interesting:

I borrowed the first film for my dad. He said he couldn't get through it, it was too brutal.

Sounds like my kind of movie.

A slew of new clips and promo images from the new Robocop. I still have no idea what the SMG might be. I also see a Beretta Rx4 Storm in one of the shots. The Auto 9 also makes an appearance in the poster on the bottom of the second page, although it might just be a cameo.

The fleshy hand on Rebootcop still bothers me, unless they are saying it just looks like skin, otherwise, a shotgun blast can take it right off.

Yeah, I'm not pleased about that either, but I'm gonna go in assuming that it's going to be a pivotal plot point that we aren't yet aware of. One of the clips hints that Murphy's wife might have a bigger role this time than the minor one she played in the original and maybe that has something to do with it?

Still, I wish this was a sequel-reboot in the style of the recent Evil Dead flick rather than a remake, though.

It'd weird to think about, but the makeup in the original was better. In the original, it looked like Murphy's face was grafted to the machine. Here it just looks like a guy in a suit.
