 Zeiram isn't the best film to ever be made, let's just get that out of the way. What it is a wild, cheesy, fun, B-movie romp.

RoboCop (1987) Film Review | 100 Day Film Challenge – Day 56

HOLY CRAP, I'VE BEEN DEPRIVED! I absolutely adored RoboCop. I think I'm officially a Paul Verhoeven fan girl now.

*Note: I watched the Final Cut of the film* Yes, I've just now seen Ridley Scott's epic in its entirety. I had seen bits and pieces of the (heavily edited) film on TV and hated what I saw of it.
