The MovieFilm Podcast: Remembering RoboCop!

Posted: Updated:
This week's MovieFilm adventure kicks off with us talking up our latest entertainment exploits, including The Lego Movie, The Monuments Men, Philomena, a documentary about iconic movie poster artist Drew Struzan, and the break-neck thrill-ride that is Downton Abbey.

Hollywood Headlines follow and there's much to discuss, what with recently leaked designs featuring the titular heroes of the upcoming Michael Bay produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, the decidedly unusual casting choice of Jessie Eisenberg as Lex Luther for the upcoming Batman vs. Superman flick, and a moment is taken to reflect on the untimely passing of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Then, inspired by the soon-to-be-released reboot, the MovieFilm trio look back on a Movie That Matters: the original 1987 RoboCop. It was the bombastically violent action film '80s sleepover movies were made of, and we share our thoughts on what it was like to watch it as kids, and again as adults.
