Question: Between the original 1987 version of Robocop and the 2014 reboot of Robocop, which is better? And why is it the original 1987 version? We’re diving into the universe of OCP’s most controversial crime fighting machine. We look at how such a goofy concept of a half-robot, half-human, all-crime fighter could have so much wit and black comedy in the middle of the Reagan era. We’ll also tear into it’s reboot, which had significantly better effects, higher budget, a cast of brilliant actors, and became a neutered, bland, tiresome cash grab. Because that’s what we do. | 0:00 - Intros | 4:32 - Get Shorty (Series, Epix 2017) | 8:50 - Terminal (2018) | 12:00 - Team America: World Police (2004) | 18:33 - Ninja III: The Domination | 21:55 - Homecoming (Amazon) | 25:00 - Robocop | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | Sleaze Boys - Robocop | Kool & the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | Antonio Sanchez - Breezy - Get Shorty (Original Television Soundtrack) | Alexina - Silent Killer - Theme from the motion picture Terminal | America Fuck Yeah - Team America World Police | The End of an Act - Team America World Police | Freedom Isn’t Free - Team America World Police | Derka Derk (Terrorist Theme) - Team America World Police | Sally Zapulla - Love Bites - Ninja III: The Domination | Janelle Monáe - Goldfinger | Janelle Monáe - Tightrope | Mentos Jingle / Outkast - So Fresh and So Clean / Devo - Fresh | Basil Poledouris - Drive Montage - RoboCop | Basil Poledouris - Anvil of Crom - Conan the Barbarian | Basil Poledouris - End Credits - RoboCop
