So the premise of the movie seems a little weak to me, mainly because if you had a whole video store wiped out, would one of the first movies you recreate be Robocop? I mean wouldn’t you want to remake a movie that had a chance of being rented by someone other than Peter Weller? If I had to remake a movie I’d probably go with The Elephant Man. Does that movie have a shot at getting rented? No, and probably Robocop 2 gets rented before The Elephant Man, but, you know, any excuse to glue Corn Flakes to your face and wear an onion sack over your head.
As for the casting as long as Jack Black isn’t Jack Black, I am OK with him. To me, though, he is a slightly less hair, but just as annoying Robin Williams. He is one of those guys that got by on the “he’s fat and acting wild he must be funny,” ticket, but for me and anyone with any kind of appreciation for humor, he’s not funny. Actually they should have just cast Sylvester Stallone in this movie since he is already remaking every movie he ever did. Oh snap! Did I just do that? Yeah. Yeah I just did.
