In episode 7 of Watching Robocop, I'm delighted to be joined by Lee Russell, of They Must Be Destroyed On Sight! podcasting fame (co-host Daniel Harper was our guest on Episode 2, and our first bonus episode on T2). Lee is a whip smart, fun, and engaged movie critic, and brings all that expertise to bare in a brilliant conversation. In particular, listen out for:
- An exciting new theory about Boddiker’s gang
- The Clint Eastwood connection
- What ED-209 was modelled on
- Futuristic coffee cups
- What’s wrong with modern action scenes
- Dan Aykroyd for mayor!
- Stephen King digression
- The ghost in the machine
And much, much more. Enjoy - this one's a corker!
Why Robocop is the greatest movie ever made.
Lee's podcast can be found here. And go check it out, because it's brilliant.
