Our RoboCop Remake

Our RoboCop Remake is a crowd-sourced film project based on the 1987 Paul Verhoeven classic. We are a group of filmmakers and RoboCop fans who have split the original film into 60 pieces and have remade the movie ourselves. Not necessarily a shot-for-shot remake, but a scene-for-scene retelling.

For more info and the full list of filmmakers, visit OurRoboCopRemake.com

Based on and including footage from the Orion Pictures Release: RoboCop (1987), directed by Paul Verhoeven and written by Ed Neumeier and Michael Miner. Scenes are written/directed/adapted by the individual filmmakers.

  1. Lol @ the robocop remake. Pretty funny, other than some questionable and well just plain weird bits, had me laughing a lot..

  2. I’ve seen robocop, it was surprisingly good ! Hope there is a sequel. It was more realist

    • I read the plot on Wikipedia and it sounded like the crap that the trailers betrayed it to be. Plus I’ve seen negative comments about it and mostly “the original is still a lot better”.

      I’ll see for myself when Sky Movies Premiere airs it next year and judge for myself, there’s no way I’ll pay to see it in cinemas.

      • Take this however you like, but I have seen the new RoboCop and I would say, in my humble opinion, it is almost as good as the recent Dredd movie. That’s just my take on it, I have never been able to sit through any of the original RoboCop films so this new one was relatively fresh to me. Michael Keaton and Gary Oldman were great, and the lead actor was very convincing. Thoroughly enjoyed the film.

        • I dunno, Dredd looked great in the trailers and proved to be so when I saw it.

          Robocop’s remake looked terrible in the trailers and though I’m not one to use other people’s advice or reviews as a way of judging movies, so far, the reboot has had mediocre to bad reviews and the general consensus seems to be “the original is still the best”. The plot for the reboot as read on Wiki also made me facepalm a few times at how dumb it sounded.

          Like I said though, I’ll wait until it’s on TV because Oblivion looked average but I saw that last night on TV and it was really good.

  3. Those math vids seem to be on the level of an elementary school level or middle school. When you get to a certain level or a certain appreciation for math, learning math IS the fun and not at all stressful. There are so much more cooler concepts in math than this nonsense. They should get an actual math person to give some of the cooler ones. For example…

    Pi is an irrational number; it doesn’t end and keeps going on and on. Additionally, it never repeats into a pattern! What does that imply? Think of all the social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, bank account numbers, any finite sequence of numbers in the world. There’s a lot yeah? They’re all in pi. Why? Since pi never repeats in a pattern and goes on for infinity, it is able to cycle through all possible finite string of numbers. All of them will be in pi or any irrational number for that matter.

    • Actually, Danica McKellar is a math person. Her Erdos number is like 3 or 4 or something.

      • That is one of the dumbest concept I’ve read, a gauge on prestige based on publications related to Erdos. And just skimming what that crap is about tells me she is nowhere near a 3 or 4 given that Einstein and Nobel Prize winners are 2 and 3′s, respectively.

        Sorry, the videos she presents seem mostly to be regurgitative math, stuff you spit back out (memorizing stuff like pi, formulas, and such). That kind of math only lasts about the first or second year for math students. After that, math changes completely and becomes mostly proof based, even the upper applied/numerical classes. I would know this being a math major. Her videos seem to indicate she hasn’t learned anything beyond that of, at most, a high school senior.

        • To be honest, you admit to being a maths major but her video is just introducing how most of the world uses mathematics and seems to be made for the many people who don’t understand the subject, like myself for instance (which is weird because I had to explain the concept of wormholes and the science of consciousness on Facebook last week to a guy who didn’t seem to have any clue whatsoever and kept making ridiculous statements and questions while responding to a question I asked on Dr Michio Kaku’s official page but still, maths is difficult for me to grasp).

          Seems like you’re giving that woman a hard time for no reason other than to show off a perceived superiority complex because you majored in it yourself.

          • No, I was pointing out there are much more interesting math concepts than the ones she’s presenting which seem to be on an elementary level; those interesting concepts are also well within the grasp/reach of any average audience. Of course I want more people to get into math. Seems like you’re projecting some superiority complex onto me when I did no such thing. I want more people to be interested in math and think she could easily present better material rather than regurtitative math. She could simply ask university mathematicians as well; they’re more than willing to offer any interesting material for her show.

  4. Beer-Boxtimus Prime looks better then the Movie version of himself

    • Wobbily-Pop Power. Oh those crazy Canucks. Assembled remarkably well.

  5. I would be shocked if her Erdos number was higher than 4. %90 of all active mathemeticians have an Erdos number of 8 or less (since you are right in pointing out that Erdos numbers are the equivalent of 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon).

    Danica’s math vids are not only on the level of grade school math; they are in fact made for grade schoolers. I haven’t read her books, but I have heard interviews with her where she explains her mission is to get kids (especially young girls) inyo math. Hence the puppets.

    • Gotcha, still there could be more interesting concepts presented.
