Re: Robocop (remastered) - 21/1/14

Ugh. Just noticed that the commentary added to this is the SAME commentary used for the R cut. That's going to annoy me like crazy cuz they mention that they're watching the R cut. really wished they could have gotten a new commentary at least.

Really wish they kept the R cut for the sake of completion and accompaniement to the commentary. I'd actually would love a commentary by Weller for this film. Even as a kid, I thought the guy playing Robo was amazing. The shit he had to do for it alone is fascinating.

I felt that the 2012 Q & A was very fascinating as far as a behind the scenes look with cast and crew, so at least it's a good alternative.

The UNRATED audio commentary is on the CC DVD.

It's a different group commentary, but like many of Criterion's it's spliced together from separate sessions. It's a good track from what I remember, though I haven't listened to it in years.

Is this the same commentary that was on the steelbook SE DVD version?

Re: Robocop (remastered) - 21/1/14

I just finished watching it, and aside from my comments about the audio synch issues during Murphy's death, this remastered Blu-ray is pretty fucking phenomenal. It's the best its ever looked and sounded.

Ugh. Went back to BB and the computer showed 1 copy in stock, but they couldn't find it.

They should be on an endcap with other MGM BDs.

Picked up mine at BB. At that price it's hard to beat.

Robo's spot was always empty but finally scored it today.

Holy shit is the picture amazing.

Re: Robocop (remastered) - 21/1/14

Holy shit. This looks so fucking good. Sucks that the Amazon copy doesn't have that movie cash for the remake. I'd like to see it for free. Just got to the ED-209 scene. uhm... Does the shots in that bit look rough or is it just me? The extended squib bit looks kind of rough to me. Not too much but I noticed it. I wonder if the other bits will be rough too?

It seemed to me like the trims that were re-inserted for the unrated cut came from a poor-quality source.

Re: Robocop (remastered) - 21/1/14

The DVD had the same issue. That's why I never liked their insertion so much as well. Still... Amazing picture. This is A+ work on the picture. Yeah. I just passed the part of Murphy going down. Poor source but they cleaned it up a lot better than the DVD.

Goddamn I love this movie.

Seriously MGM? Why no UV code? Sad that the physical media market is this dead, I got this stunning remaster for less than $8. Good for me, but bad for business on their end, I'm sure. Went to customer service at Best Buy, they told me they didn't have it, and then I found it on an endcap Not good stock info.

I would've liked a UV code for this. I like UV. I could live without it but it is neat to have whenever you're not home or something.

That looks fine. Then again, it would look sort of rough, because it was originally cut out and it was years before they reinserted. Technically, most of the extended gore scenes would look kind of rough, because they were inserted years later.

Re: Robocop (remastered) - 21/1/14

Picked this up at Walmart today for $7.88, can't wait to see the version of this I remember from years ago, not the cut 'R' version I have on DVD.
