Things I’m Checking Out:

Robocop, even after all these years, has carved out a place in sci-fi as a classic. If you haven’t seen Robocop 2, it’s good to watch once, and it’s the last time Peter Weller plays the part.  As far as 3 goes, think, Back to the Future III without Christopher Lloyd and Michael J. Fox…yeah that bad.  Having said all that, if you can get a good price on the trilogy, do it.Trust me, at some point in your life a reference to the Prime Directives will be made and you will owe me one.

Long before he was trying to figure out “What Women Want”, or flying off the handle at police officers, he defined what it meant to be hardcore and enforce the law. You’ve probably heard the references to this film for years and may not have even known it–take a moment and see what started it all.

OK, no it’s high-tech nor does it have the latest special effects. Beauty and the Beast is a timeless classic. Come on, even Dexter Morgan has this in his library

So what are you watching this week?
