For the 206th episode of the Lambcast we took a look at the latest remake to come out of Hollywood, Jose Padilha’s reboot of Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 sci-fi cult classic Robocop. Does it hold up to the original? Is Joel Kinnaman a decent Alex Murphy? Are Michael Keaton and Kevin Costner the same person? And, most importantly, will you buy it for a dollar? You’ll just have to listen to find out.
Host Jay Cluitt was joined by Lindsay Street, Matthew Stewart, Matt Oakes and Bubbawheat to discuss the film and its various problems, as well as why exactly Abbie Cornish has a career. Also on tap were the Rants and Raves of the week, along with a round of Last Lamb Standing.
The show can be found, of course, via iTunes – just do a search for “LAMBcast.” Also, I always post a link to the show on the LAMBcast’s Facebook page, and there’s a player there if you’d like to listen online. The direct RSS feed is: http://lambcast.podomatic.com/entry/2014-02-19T13_21_56-08_00
