Re: ROBOCOP remake finds its director and star

I agree with the detractors. What made Robocop so good is the idea of a human being literally being trapped in a machine. These days many people would love the idea of their minds and souls in their Iphone. It just isn't the same.
It also doesn't help that "iPhone" design language is the go-to default for hack design, which is especially sad considering that Mac's product design is lifted wholesale from 1960's Braun electronics.

Robocop lampooned 80's product design aesthetics, not ripped them off. There's a huge difference between the two; effort and hair-pulling.
