"Robocop" trailer (1987)

First off, Robocop is one of my favorite movies of all-time. Years before Pineapple Express, this was a film i would re-watch over and over again.  A timeless masterpiece, indeed.

What inspired this post, however, was a recent encounter in the breakroom with a young man wearing a raggedy white worn-out version of this shirt.

Naturally, I complimented him on the shirt. He responded (in a thick New York accent) "You know, is funny. When we wuz kids, I used to look up to cops. Nowadays, I don't really like cops too much, yanahmean? But when you wuz a younger, he used to be a hero. Ya know?" Damn.

It was an endearing moment.
