'Robocop': Remake

image

#TaniaOnTheScene - “Robocop" is a movie about a very smart, technically proficient crew that, when a good man has been seriously injured, takes the living organism apart and puts it back together with synthetic pieces. It feels like the movie was made the same way.

The filmmakers started with the original, 1987 slick sci-fi actioner starring Peter Weller and directed by Paul Verhoeven. They disassembled it, eliminating some of the wilder political satire, and making the violence mostly bloodless. Then they added better effects, a stronger supporting cast, and a different ending.

It’s not as alive anymore – but it works. The cynical touches are still here, only updated (the cyber cop is now an outgrowth of a drones program, and the film’s news breaks are delivered by a mad Bill O’Reilly clone played by Samuel L. Jackson).

RIP Shirley Temple Black

image

#TaniOnTheScene - Shirley Temple Black, who as the most popular child movie star of all time lifted a filmgoing nation’s spirits during the Depression and then grew up to be a diplomat, has died. She was 85.

Black died late Monday at her home in Woodside, Calif., according to publicist Cheryl J. Kagan. No cause was given.

From 1935 through 1938, the curly-haired moppet billed as Shirley Temple was the top box-office draw in the nation. She saved what became 20th Century Fox studios from bankruptcy and made more than 40 movies before she turned 12.

Shia LaBeouf Lands Lead Role in ‘Nymphomaniac’ by Sexting

#TaniaOnTheScene - LaBeouf is showing us a side we haven’t seen before. The actor went to great lengths to land a starring role in the upcoming drama “Nympomaniac.” The 27 year old actor says he sent a sexually explicit picture to the director of the film. Shia successfully landed the role of Jerome, which follows the sexcapades of a self-proclaimed nympho. The film has several graphic love scenes and will most likely be released without a rating. It’s set to hit theaters in two installments: March 21st and April 3rd. Other stars of the film include Uma Thurman and Christian Slater.
