The RoboCop remake trailer came out today (9/4/2013 just incase you're reading this in the future) and through out it's casting, production , and updates I have been keeping a relatively close eye on it because like every American man born in the 80's and lived through the 90's I thought of Robocop as a Hero. Well, at least RoboCop 1& 2, 3 can go fuck it self. But I hold it pretty close to the heart right along with Ghostbusters, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Transformers and Bill Murray all heroes to me.
So I wasn't 100% behind the idea of a Robocop remake. Yes, the original isn't perfect. Granted it was the 80's they were trying some shit out. Just playing around with some green screen, squib packs, exploding hands, Kurtwood Smith's giant forehead just stealing the show and whatever this was. It's funny I looked all over the youtube and the google and couldn't find actual footage of when the boss man got shot out the window. This will have to do, but yeah this was crazy . Look at those arms, so life like so real, so 80's. And that's what made it such a beloved movie. It's so out of hand crazy that it is cemented in our hearts an untouchable film. But money is easy to make then original ideas, so Robocop is getting an update.
After watching the trailer. I am kinda digging it. They stuffed it with Actors I want to see work together and really it looks like a Pacific Rim style action movie. Just enough clever dialogue to get me past the bullshit logic and just the right amount of action to take over the movie. So really what this three paragraph lead up is heading to is a top list.
Welcome to the Top 5 Remakes in my opinion that were better then the originals aka The shot heard around the world . After this some of us are going to war. So lets go to war.

3. Mr. Blandings builds His Dream House / The Money Pit - I bet you just threw on the breaks. You were clipping along laugh and having a great time with the Scarface and the whole Muppets jokes that I had going on. But then I just put it out there and you are all like " What is this?" I'll tell you. TOM MOTHER FUCKING HANKS , bitch... Yeah and Alexander Godunov is the smooth bad guy in this burrito of 80's goodness. Basic over view Man ( Carey Grant/Tom Hanks) and fiance ( Myrna Loy/Shelly Long) build/find their dream house where they will build their future (pun intended) but some crazy shit happens and they get all mad at each other because its pretty crazy and then some other guy comes sniffing around. Hilarity ensues . Fun is had by all.

1. Omega Man / I am Legend - For those of you who don't know this movie has been remade twice. The first one is called The Last man on earth and it is based off a book called you guessed it I am Legend. Pretty much one man survived a global pandemic where everyone except him has become a Vampire Zombie. Or a Zombie Vampire or a Vampy or a Zombire or an Albino. No body really knows, just a bunch of people who are harmed by the sun and tried to eat people. But the Will Smith lead update is quite possibly the best all around remake of all the Remakes. Totally blows the Honeymooners and Total Recall out of the water. Wasn't Will Smith nominated for an Oscar for this movie. It had to be for the scene where his dog dies. That broke me. Hold on, I'm remembering.... Ok I am back. Also I am Legend is the unofficial official start of the DC Universe. Not the Shitty Kevin Spacey or the Batman trilogy, no the one with Amy Adams in it and that is the only one that counts.
So there it is. Let me know what you think . Hit me up on the Facebook Page or on Twitter. Since its football season I will be more active on Sundays and mondays. I kill it during the games.
