It's no Mant.

It's no Anaconda Vs Python.

It's no Aliens Vs Predator. (wait, that was a decent film)

The idea of Spielberg making movies doesn't excite me at all anymore.

I thought it said Robocopalypse, a Robocop sequel/remake. I was imagining a bunch of Robocops gone mad and the one true Robocop has to stop them. Which actually sounds good if done right. IMO

Well, it's the title of the book the movie is based on. Should they change the title?

Only if they change it to "Robocalypse," which I think rolls off the tongue better. :techman:

:cardie:

That's how I read it initially, and didn't realize my mistake until now!

Man, does this sound dumb. Did Munich destroy his appetite for any more serious movies, ever?

what happened to his Abraham Lincoln project? is that still being made or was it dumped?

Is Spielberg really going to direct this? Every year, there's always some announcement that he's going to direct a film and he never does. I believe it when I see it.

Well Ebert will be giving this a thumbs down, with his line of reasoning being "why did the director who made a movie about a nice robot boy make a movie about robot wars," which is what happened when Ebert tried to compare War of the Worlds to E.T.

Sounds like a potential Matrix prequel. I hope Keanu is not involved.

But I agree, the title sounds pretty silly.

Maybe if he was doing metalocalypse. Now I love to see his take on Murderface and Pickles...
