I don't see the point of remaking Robocop.

I'm so far removed from the original Robocop that I thought that the trailer was pretty decent

DD is a movie people love to hate. The counter-hipster criticism of the hipster flick is a head scratcher.

its a flawed, simple movie that is enjoyable but not remarkable. Not worthy of praise nor disdain. It is the "garden state" of its genre.

On it's own, I think it's a decent movie -- its diehard fans kind of give it a worse rap than it deserves from their ridiculous overpraising.

I think Garden State is a decent movie. This is pretty spot on.

I'd get behind a Weird Science remake starring Kate Upton.

I hear two things in every garden state conversation I've ever had...

Natalie Portman is hot
the soundtrack is awesome.

both of these are true, but both of those are the films selling points for a lot of ardent fans...dialogue and Prot progression are afterthoughts in peoples love for the movie.
