    Well there is a scene that's kind of like that, but it's also the stupidest moment in the whole film.
    ED-209 and the other robots are programmed to instantly attack anyone holding a weapon.

    Some dumbass kid gets the dumbass idea to attack one of the EDs with a kitchen knife and then dies like a dumbass.

    So...I know I'm probably lttp but I hear they're trying to remake Short Circuit.

    That's it, Hollywood, just piss over my entire childhood.

    The clip they showed on the Daily Show interview last week made it look really bad.

    Well if you want to get technical about it...
    He doesn't actually attack any of them, but he clearly was hoping to accomplish something with that knife, and he knows the area is filled with killer machines specifically programmed to attack anyone with a weapon.

    In hindsight he would have been better off wailing on one of them bare-handed.

    That is just lazy and pathetic. That's what pisses me off about all of these remakes/reboots/re-fuckyous.

    Fisher Stevens has an Oscar now. So they'd sell it like RDJ in Tropic Thunder.

    You see. I didn't even remember the weird racist undercurrent because I haven't watched in a long time. Now I'm reminded of that.

    Just like with Back to the Future.

    And he'll be mo-capped by Andy Serkis, because anyone can be in that ping pong ball suit, but somehow Hollywood is deluded into thinking differently.

    It would be interesting to see J5 as more humanoid given the state of robotics and unmanned vehicles 30 years on.

    It feels like you're ragging on Andy Serkis but I'm not sure why

    I just don't buy into the gravitas and mystique of Mr. "No, madame. I am Gollum" Serkis. Mainly because it further diminishes the lack of credit the animators and other production people don't get for "his" performances.

    Dawn ... is literally a case where a trained ape could've done his job.

    See, again, that sounds a little unfair because it's not an attitude he personally exudes and I don't even think that's anyone's actual perception of him

    Exactly.

    Every time I see someone say their childhood is being violated I want them to suffer to gain some goddamn perspective.

    Dude...dude...

    Get a sense of humor.

    Geez, I'm not going to lose sleep over a remake. But I still bitch about it on the internet because that's the cool thing to do.

    Y'know I am like 90% sure I have seen an interview with Serkis where he spent half of it thanking and giving credit to the animators
