    Last I heard....Aronofsky(Requiem For A Dream, The Wrestler, The Fountain) is set to take over the ol' cyborg cop. Usually most remakes suck, but this guy has made some great films....so I'll definitely give it a chance.

    After Robocrap 3....Miller can stay away!

    There's a teaser poster online I think, but nothing hugely exciting...
    Innocent victims of merciless crimes, fall prey to some madman's impulsive designs.

    Step after step we try controlling our fate. When we finally start living, it's become too late.

    yeah, i saw the teaser poster. i wonder what he'll look like. the costume was already extremly badass i think, what more will they do? i also thought the batman 89 keaton suit was hot and is still also one of my favs. hows the joker say it? they dont make em like they used to? haha although of course admittidly the dark knight suit is awesome.

    I believe what you're looking for is "where does he get those wonderful toys?" or "Where's the Batman? He's at home, washing his tights!".

    And yeah, the Dark Knight suit was WAY better than the Batman Begins. The Begins suit looked too much like rubber and made him look kinda fat...

    Looks like a Robocop remake might not be in the near future after all.

    Aronofsky wants it his way. The studio wants a 3D spectacle event film. Do not pass go. Do not collect 200 dollars.

    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    I know this quote is ancient, but I still wanted to comment on it since the post itself has been resurrected.

    Don't blame Frank Miller for Robocop 3. The studio hacked and slashed his script to the point that it was unrecognizable. They did such a bad hatchet job on it that Miller refused to allow any of his material to be used by Hollywood again. The only thing that changed his mind was Robert Rodriguez shooting a proof of concept adaptation and showing it to him to get the rights to make Sin City.

    Let's not forget 300. That movie still cracks me up.

    I have mixed feelings on 300. It entertained me, but it felt completely different from the Frank Miller graphic novel.

    I'm not defending Frank Miller on some of his stuff. To this day, I still have no idea what the hell he did to The Spirit. Five minutes into that movie I was begging Sam Jackson to shoot the guy in the face. In the comics he had the Elongated Man doing male enhancement commercials (yes, yes, I get the joke, it just wasn't that funny) and Batman killing people while Catwoman ran an escort service. He's made his share of crap. Robocop 3 just doesn't happen to be one of those things.

    I love 300... Great action flick IMHO!
