Robocop is one of the greatest films of all time. If you're honest it's in the top 10 ever made.

Black Book is his best film. At least he is not a sellout like Hans Zimmer ! I used to love his scores ( Driving Miss Daisy was fantastic ), but he now is only doing scores for films such as Batman vs Superman. Come on !!!

Robocop is one of those few action films that I would describe as perfect - Predator, Robocop and Terminator are all perfect. I haven't seen it seen the 90s however.

Robocop is too violent for the adult version of me but I agree it is a very good movie. One of the best 80s cyber punk things. However like most of those things they sort of ride the fashions of the day and its hard to point out any of them that are revolutionarily brilliant or first at anything. It was a slow creep. What Robocop did had kinda been done by Terry Gilliam, Heavy Metal, Terminator, Max Headroom, Blade Runner, and many many other darkly humorously and smartly self aware 80s things. Even Back to the Future II has a bit of whatever Robocop has. There are a lot of good cyber punk scifi things like this from the 80s. What I like is that the budget has nothing to do with how good they are. You can buy it for a dollar.

Some people rag on Bubblegum Crisis because it rips of Bladerunner sooo blatently, but I never even thought about it because at the time "Blade Runner" had almost become a genre. It felt like fair game since nobody could remember who did it first.

but "who did it first" is less important than "doing it good".
