Hah... wow.  Nice.  By the time you were born, I'd already seen RoboCop like 120+ times.

Great film.  I like all of Paul Verhoven's stuff, though - RoboCop is brilliant satire.  Funny side story, the actor who played him, Peter Weller, is an adjunt professor at Syracuse University, in my town.  He's about town quite frequently; few years ago, I had a pint of Guinness with him, and we talked about RoboCop.  He's a serious actor, but he still loves to talk about that film.  Cool guy.

Something tells me he made more money as Robocop.

Yep.  But still, as an adjunct who comes in to teach a seminar course every once in a while, he gets paid a pretty princely sum.  SU has money coming out of it's ass; it's ridiculous.  Course they don't spend any of it on protecting the campus from the ever encroaching ghetto at it's borders.
