New York Post

By Kyle Smith
RoboCop is topically up-to-the-moment but stylistically it’s retro. Far from using the story as an excuse to string together cheap thrills...

My son wanted to see this movie so I was along for the ride but I actually enjoyed the movie. It kept me engaged the whole time and had a lot of action as well as a few heart tugs. I loved it when...

A Philosophical Exercise on the Controversy of Drones vs Humans

By jffgrdnr
Robocop is not a brainless, senseless action film like most. It's a exercise of conscience; is it acceptable to allow robots to make decisions in place of humans? Should a man be kept a live when...

It was OK
