I'd Buy That For A Dollar: Rococop: A subversive classic.


1987 was an incredibly rich and varied year for film, from family favourites to brainless action to body horror, it was nothing if not diverse. Amongst the slew of releases there was an action flick that attempted to be something more than just another facsimile of everything else out there by mixing brutal ultra-violence with biting social commentary, that film was Robocop. 416 more words
