Earlier this year, MGM admirably tried to reboot their "RoboCop" franchise to middling results. It wasn't exactly terrible, but it missed the edge and black humor of Paul Verhoeven's original. And it says something that 27 years later — the film was released today in 1987 — Verhoeven's movie still stands tall and holds up remarkably well.

In fact, at one point, The Criterion Collection managed to get "RoboCop" into their lineup, first on laserdisc and then on DVD. It has long been out of print, but thankfully the commentary with Verhoeven, writer Ed Neumeier and producer Jon Davison has made it subsequent releases...or you can just listen below. After that check out the vintage "Siskel & Ebert" review of the movie, and spoiler alert, they really liked it.
