    Our RoboCop Remake

    Our RoboCop Remake is a fan-made scene-by-scene remake/parody of the original Robocop, in which every scene is produced by a different team of filmmakers. Just browsing Reddit once in a while might make one familiar with the best-known of the bunch where RoboCop shoots an accumulation of literal dicks.

    It doesn't exactly feel like self-parody and it doesn't exactly feel like Tarantino jumped the shark, but The Hateful Eight most definitely does not feel as well crafted as any of his other films bar Death Proof. The bursts of gory violence are timed for big laughs, but the narrative lacks the usual mix of importance, freshness and cleverness. Awkward slow-motion, a puzzlingly pointless flashback and the use of a special narrator move the film past the edge to overindulgent…
