    I enjoy Robocop, but I feel it's a tad overrated.

    Hellllllll naaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh. Dude Robocop, apart from being superbly entertaining, was an extremely prescient film about many things surrounding and affecting the political climate of our modern world. Its deeper rooted themes get dismissed because they're embedded in the cartoonyness of its violence, but the script for this film is nothing short of brilliant.
    What was it John Lennon said? Bigger than Jesus.

    I don't doubt that. It's probably been too long since I've seen it.
