35 years of Robocop

On Twitter I saw that Robocop is now 35 years old

I remember seeing the film in the cinema while in high school and enthusing about it to my friends.

Then, when it came out on video, I was unable to watch it again for years as it'd been reclassified as R-rated!

Unlike the R-rating shown in the US advert here, Australia's R is restricted to anyone under 18.

Anyway, I showed the film to my kids last year since they are all in high school.

It stands up well, despite the decades and development of various technologies -- including police robots.

The cynical idea that police service might be privatised now seems prescient in light of their role enforcing mining activities within Australia.
