I don’t mind remakes and them doing something different things. The points I wrote about not being in the original, like Murphy getting blown up rather than getting shot to death. I’m not saying this cos I want a shot for shot remake, it’s because those scenes were integral to the plot and the character’s development.
One of my favourite movies is 1982s The Thing a remake of 1951s The Thing from Another World a very different movie from the original. It’s the fact “this” remake just looks so uninspired and lazy and trying to be cool, compared with a movie that is so full of social satire and an inventive special effects and “is” cool because they were just trying to make a good movie.
And why does Robocop look like a cylon with a bad matte black paint job? It looks unfinished.
