When this week began, I had no intention of running a RoboCop-themed piece each and every day (collected for you at the bottom of this article). But nothing brings the people together like heart-warming-flesh-chunk-encased-in-cold-steel Alex Murphy. My love of the character has been documented here, but it’s been so much fun shooting the shit with fellow likeminded Murphiles this week.
So today, we’re closing out Spontaneous RoboCop Week in the best way possible: with RoboCop, the real RoboCop, saving film itself. The Oscars are all fun and Pee-wee until ED-209 comes around and messes with your shit. But like a white knight that knows when he’s needed, Alex Murphy answers the call. This video doesn’t have the supreme weirdness of fried chicken or noodle sales; what it does have is heart, and danger. Just look at ED-209 pumping endless rounds bullets into a terrified audience. Jack Nicholson is somewhere in that crowd! From a spritely Pee-wee Herman floating effortlessly through the air to a RoboCop who still hasn’t quite hacked his targeting system, the Academy Awards owes a debt of gratitude to our favorite protector.
And I owe a debt of gratitude to you, the Chewers, for coming along on this ride with me. RobertCop would approve:
Spontaneous RoboCop Week!
