RoboCop marathon bliss for Rincewind

Having a weekend for myself and what better way to celebrate than a RoboCop marathon,  had almost forgot how damn good the first movie was and how much I dislike the third one.

RoboCop’s first Directive, “Serve the Public Trust,” was inspired by a fortune cookie.

The special-effects were generated with an Commodore Amiga computer.

Ironically, 27 years later Detroit did actually file for bankruptcy.

Realizing that the film was running behind schedule and over budget, director Paul Verhoeven and producer Jon Davison purposely didn’t film one crucial scene: Officer Murphy’s death. When production wrapped, they went back to Los Angeles and ‘grimly’ informed the execs that Murphy’s death hadn’t been filmed. So the execs gave them more money and they filmed the scene in a warehouse in Los Angeles.
