RoboCop (1987)

I had never seen this in its entirety until today. I know what you're thinking, "how can someone so awesome never have seen RoboCop" and my answer is simple...I was the oldest of three daughters. If my male cousins didn't watch it in front of me, I didn't know about it. I remember seeing parts of it as a kid and my mother would 1. make me leave the room 2. change the channel/turn it off 3. yell at me so I never caught it all. I sat down and with the aid of someone else's netflix (since I don't have it at home until I move) watched RoboCop...finally. I must say it was rather good. There was some typical guy stuff that I expected but the underlying plot was very human to me. So he dies, gets turned into a robot cop and still has emotion?? Good idea writers from the 80s. It worked for me!

I still haven't seen this. I try not to mention it as it makes for embarrassing moments. I guess I'll just find it somewhere or something.
