These are the movies that stand the test of time and on top with a defiant and bloodied sword in the air. 


Robocop: The revenge story of a cop turned VCR against all of Detroit.

It’s a film that if you wrote the plot points on paper, it doesn’t seem to work. Murdered cop in the future gets turned into a crime fighting cyborg and seeks revenge on those that wronged him. If you never have seen it, it sounds fucking stupid. The director also though so when he chunked it in the fucking trash. Peter Weller said it was the worst moment in his life since the suit made him sweat “bucketloads” and took 10 hours to get into. They almost pulled the plug on the film until they brought in a professional mime to strip the suit and get him to move like a cop turned toaster. In the end they pulled it off. Not only did they manage to make one of the most dystopian corporate satires come to life, but they created one of, if not THE, most violent action movies ever filmed in its time.

Falling Down

Falling Down:  How pissed have you been when you missed McDonald’s breakfast?

Movies where people lose their shit are guilty pleasures of mine. There are several films where there are amazing freak outs, but Falling Down devotes an entire movie to Michael Douglas rolling around in it. It is the story of a man out of his time getting pushed out by an apathetic society and lashes out at everything in the most irresponsible way possible while trying to get to his daughter’s birthday. Its fucking great.

Transformers the Movie

Transformers the Movie:  How a cartoon designed to sell toys became one of the first steps toward adulthood.

For a young kid, the movie opens like a shotgun to the face, with the ultimate Transformer’s antagonist, Unicron, consuming an entire planet for fuel. We are shown the scale of the upcoming threat as the movie sets the tone five minutes in. The Decepticons intercept an Autobot shuttle to Earth murdering all inside. Ironhide, Brawn, Prowl, and Ratch are now corpses decorating the inside of the ship all while NGR’s Instruments of Destructions blares through the speakers. For fans of the show, all jaws were dropped. This was supposed to be a stupid show about transforming trucks made to sell toys to gullible kids. Now, the stakes were raised. The violence and action was cranked to 11 with a power metal soundtrack while children across America had their minds blown. Advertising needs to take notice. This is how you sell stupid toys to impressionable kids.
