It's actually quite a bit more than that, but it adds to the over the top effect of the movie, etc. You can read up on the alterations at wikipedia.


Wiki:
To appease the requirements of the ratings board, Verhoeven strove to reduce blood and gore in the most violent scenes in the movie, including the malfunctioning of ED-209, Murphy's execution (where his entire right arm is severed by a shotgun blast and a final overhead shot of Lewis sobbing over Murphy on the blood-soaked floor), and the final battle with Clarence Boddicker (in which RoboCop stabs Boddicker in the neck with his neural spike and Boddicker's blood splatters onto RoboCop's chest).

So it's a minute of extra gore. I forgot about the OCP office guy getting shot up by ED209, that's about 45 seconds right there. Not huge, but I'd rather have it in than out.

I believe the unrated edition is the one that viewable through Netflix Instant Watch. I know it's not a ton of added content, but for some reason, the edited material seems to add so much to the movie as a whole.

I'd seen it before, and I'll see it again, but I think it's about time that we start lobbying for Black Dynamite to be listed as the greatest movie of all time.

The Social Network

Really great film. I like how it provokes feelings about this current age we are in. It made me miss having a facebook account and the days when I first signed up during college in 2005. It also made me glad that I don't have the account anymore.

MICMACS... this movie was a beast. Very off kilter, euro/french, but VERY good. Reminded me of live action Popeye meets Smoking Aces meets Oceans 11. I am now officially checking for every movie from director Jean-Pierre Jeunet. Visually pleasing... added Delicatessen and Amelie to my instant Q already.


Welcome to ten years ago! Seriously, though, outside of Alien: Resurrection, you can't go wrong. Delicatessen is a little weird, and City of Lost Children is weird but amazing visually.

Then, if you want girlfriend-friendly movies, both Amelie and A Very Long Engagement are fantastic, with more identifiable characters and love stories than clones and people eaters and stuff like that.

I'd recommend going in order, but don't let Delicatessen's weirdness ruin you for the rest. It's the definition of an "art film", while the later stuff is more crowd-pleasing.

The Other Guys - 5/10

I guess my friend and his wife liked it a lot because of the one liners, but... I really wasn't feeling it (it was this or Social Network). I guess I'm really not a Will Ferrell fan too...

That's about where I rated it. It kept my interest but wasn't the best. I agreed with a review or post (can't remember) that I read which stated if they made the movie with the Rock and Samuel L Jackson and continued their storyline that the movie would have been way better. Those scenes to me is what made the movie... the rest of the movie was pretty lousy.

I watched it as well and I completely agree.

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

City Island 5/5 - Great indie comedy about a dysfunctional family in the Bronx, Andy Garcia was great

Which Way Home 4/5 - Good documentary about the plight of South and Central American children trying to cross the US border

Both are instant streaming on Netflix

Rec 2 - While I don't regret watching it, I think the way the direction they took the story in compared to the first movie, was awful.

Summer Wars - Great.

The Game - I just can't shake the feeling like this movie jumped the shark at one point. It was really good...but dang, I really wanted to like this so much more.

Jackass 3 - The worst of the 3, but still pretty enjoyable, if you're into this sort of thing.

The one with Michael Douglas? I always liked that movie for some reason. Overall it's just kind of standard fare, but I'll give it a watch from time to time.

Teeth - Totally ridiculous, but had some hilarious scenes (the one with the doctor was amazing).

The Human Centipede - Way funnier than I expected, the doctor guy was hilarious, especially when talking about his dog.

Dogtooth - What the Fuck?

The Lost Boys - Totally awesome, love the Coreys. Can't believe it took me so long to watch this.

Up - Pixar has apparently developed a talent for making grown men tear up. Amazing movie. Coulda done without the dogs flying planes though.

Women in Trouble - Stupid, but Connie Britton in her underwear and Adrienne Palicki as a porn actress? My Friday Night Lights fantasies=fulfilled.

Cashback - Despite a wildly inaccurate summary on Netflix, it was alright.

Being John Malkovich - Completely WTF, but in a totally awesome way.

This was the first movie to put me on the verge of tears. Toy Story 3 was the first movie to make me full out cry. Pixar can be so evil.

Freakonomics 5/5 - Really enjoyed this movie, but I'm a little biased being an Econ major. The movie takes a few chapters out of the book (which is basically a book that provides an economic look at different things in life).

Dear Zachary - Yeah. I know. Call it "Amateurish" or whatever you want. This is not a documentary that is trying to throw a ton of information at you - it is more about the emotional struggles a family must endure in this given situation.

Now, I'm not an emotional guy, but about 2/3 of the way through, my stomach dropped and I started tearing up. Fuck everything about this story.

The less you know, the better. If you haven't seen this movie, go watch it. Now.

Mannn, I thought Inside was extremely over-rated. Haute Tension, ILS, even Irreversible (this can be debated, but I put it in there) are all great French horror films, but... Meh. I guess it is worth a watch, regardless.


Summer Wars - 8/10


I thought the animation was beyond beautiful. The scenes inside OZ were amazing, and the film had a pretty decent plot. I did think that they tried to add in too much family with too little development, but I understand what they were aiming for. Regardless, I've been trying to get back into anime a little, and this definitely helped.


Tucker and Dale vs. Evil - 8/10

Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine just sold the film. The premise was a fun take on your usual teenage/college kids in the woods horror-cliche, and, really, the three leads were perfect. You can tell the writing wasn't the main focal point, nor was the CG work, but more focusing on the relationship between Tucker and Dale. The jokes were a little hit-or-miss, but really, I cannot stop raving about how well the title characters were cast. I just hope that this continues to help get Tudyk and Labine a little more exposure, even if T&DvsE is more of an Indie Horror film. The rest of the supporting cast were extremely forgettable, but I don't mind, really.

Saw 3D (8) - 1/10

I don't even know what's going on at this point so all I see is over acting and gore porn which is disgusting (women + key = stopped watching half-way mark).
