Ostensibly.

Depends on your taste/personality. Personally I would say no. You definitely need to see Infinity War to understand Endgame, but that's about it. The other movies are connected and tell what happened before, but that connection is only skin-deep and unless you tend to nerd out about little references here and there, it probably doesn't matter.

Neill Blomkamp is off Robocop Returns. Hmm, maybe he shouldn't have been making promises about a movie that didn't even have a completed script?! Just like "Alien 5"... https://twitter.com/NeillBlomkamp/status...8535439360
avatar
It seems like they are still going to make that Robocop though, just without Blomkamp.
avatar
Yes but his reason for leaving is rubbish. He told a producer "I have always wanted to do this, this is my dream project" https://hnentertainment.co/exclusive-ed-...rs-return/ I'll bet he was fired as a writer and it went downhill from there. Blomkamp has only made one good movie, and he already left (or was fied) from "Greenland" earlier this year too.
avatar
"Blomkamp has only made one good movie": Not sure if serious or trolling. Wink
avatar
Yeah only one, District 9, and it's nowhere near the quality of Paul Verhoeven's Robocop. Anyway he's off his "dream project" which clearly means MGM, the studio famously not known for creative interference, had no confidence in him!
avatar
District 9 was okayish. The rest was boring as hell.
avatar
MGM should be talking to Verhoeven right about now Smile

hi

Hey Moiisty

yo where can i find sporv edits?
avatar
I wouldn't have confidence in Blomkamp either, after District 9 they were all half-disastrous (with Chappie being nail in the coffin). After Chappie he was fired from the Alien series and his involvement with big productions have gone dry, making double the cost of production is just not cutting it from a business point of view. Plus, not counting District 9, they are all dumb (not in a fun way) movies, but here I'm taking personal opinion
avatar
@Moisty Blutopia mostly from what I know
avatar
@CSchmidlapp Verhoeven won't ever work in Hollywood again, and especially not for a sequel to a film he already made. Plus he's already making a new movie. @Evit I don't think Blomkamp was "fired" from Alien, he just never developed his film beyond a concept. Ridley Scott said no script had been presented. But yeah I wouldn't have any confidence in Blomkamp either.
avatar
@Valeyard. I bet there going to try. Has he gone on record saying he would never work in Hollywood again? Or has he been blacklisted for some reason?
avatar
He's not blacklisted, he just doesn't want to make formulaic stuff and be stripped of his creativity by Hollywood who (in his words) thinks the audience is dumb. He only went to Hollywood in the first place because he couldn't get movies made in Holland anymore, now he can he's very happy making films in West Europe. He did go on record saying that if he had made Elle in the US (as he had originally planned to do) that the entire third act would have had to be completely different. There's no way he would want to direct a Robocop sequel, he's 81 and still working, he has better/original projects to work on.
avatar
I forget he is 81!
avatar
Yeah he doesn't exactly have time left to waste on projects he doesn't want. I'll bet Robocop Returns will be worse than Robocop 2014. Anyway, Kershner's film was a perfectly acceptable sequel IMHO
avatar
Anyone knows if the old VC1 encode of Blade Runner is in sync with the 4K Atmos disc? Because I would like to watch the 4K but with the 2007 mix in addition to the Atmos mix.
