    ★½

    Unbelievably disappointing. Like many, I had the highest of hopes, as its glorious trailer made it out to be The Lord of the Rings meets Guillermo Del Toro, but I couldn’t have been more painfully wrong if I had tried. I don’t know much about the story it’s adapted from so I can’t comment on how accurate this version is historically or what they changed, all I’m looking at is how it works as a narrative film.

    ★★★½

    The goofiest of the unofficial Paul Verhoeven goofy sci-fi epic trilogy, and it’s definitely the Return of the Jedi of the bunch (the purposefully tacky love triangle is the film’s Ewoks section).

    ★★★★½

    After Total Recall blew my socks off (didn’t think you’d hear that term would you), I was determined to tackle RoboCop and Starship Troopers eventually. The life of a film nerd entails endless amount of random watchlists, whether that be lists of directors, actors, genre, etc. to get through. A film like RoboCop is a total delight during runs of more “serious” cinema, an unabashed action sci-fi epic that embraces the camp and doesn’t half-ass any aspect of this ridiculous yet…
