A fun edit of Robocop 2 that turns it into a 15 minute 80's TV show with some clever cameos. While the narrative was a little wonky, I quite enjoyed the Robocop vs Supercop showdown. Overall, it was an interesting way to spend a quarter of an hour.
There are some jarring cuts here and audio levels fluctuate. Sound is much too crisp as well and i think the concept would have been better sold with mono audio and some degradation. That aside, the concept is a fun one and it's not badly realised on the whole. I enjoyed the integration of footage from various films and the use of Die Hard gave me a chuckle. Use of Suspiria soundtrack was a bit random.
- Interesting touch with having Anchorman News Intro on the TV (works good with “turn that shit off”)
- I noticed you also mixed in some scenes from other movies
- Cool opening credits sequence (although the voice over was amateurish but I guess cheesiness works with this edit!) and I can't fault leeroy, not everyone is ThrowgnCpr and hires a professional voice over actor!
- lol at the last actor credited (I won't spoil it for those who haven't seen the edit)
- at times it seemed like the audio transitions could have been smoothed out a bit
- lol at the coca-cola commercial, clever
- Overall this was a fun edit
This was fun, although I'm not really the target audience for these kind of 80s TV throwback projects. It was almost like a Robocop TV show filtered through the sensibilities of the A-team or something.
The good: I thought most of the inserts from other sources were handled really well - in fact the only one that fell flat for me was the Coke ad. And the retro TV look was great, in a cringing sort of way.
The not-so-good: The narrative was a bit scattered - I guess due to limitations of the available material. The audio editing was quite rough in a few places, and didn't always fit the tone of what was happening on screen. (Though this may well be deliberate, in which case it's fair enough).
All in all, not necessarily my thing - but still worth watching as it has some good ideas pulled off with flair.
