    Sounds good to me. We'll call him "HT", for short.

    Lil B sampled the theme song from the gameboy version of robocop for that song.

    Ive talked about the ending of the first film before, so all I'll say is that I feel the "son" line is meant to be diminishing and a sign of power, as opposed to acceptance, and that the old man is not as benevolent has he appears in the open.

    The Mayor was more or less absent in the comic, but I preferred how in the film he was a lot more of a foil for what the city itself was actually going through.

    I really feel that it's taken on a life of its own whereas R1 had Verhoeven deliberately doing these things. I'd even go so far to say that Verhoeven and R1 extend into R2 just by default and even over-shawdowing anything Kershner intended. I could certainly be wrong about that and anything else, though.

    Boy, Mayor Kuzak! Man, most of the funny stuff comes from just his quotes! ("You senile old bastard!") Just the fact that he's willing to cut a deal with Hob and Angie to get the city out of debt...that in itself is a pretty good piece of satire. I think enough is said about it as well.

    There's a mean sense of humor to the movie that's a bit unique as well. From start to end is like one joke that's meant to be funny...but almost mean to be very harsh and spiteful about the things it's presenting. The tone is different than the first, as the first kinda pokes fun at how things are whereas R2 really is sarcastically nasty about them. Cooperate control, uncontrolled crime and drugs, mistreating workers (OCP vs. DPD)....it's not just making satire, it's really being nasty about saying "hey, this stuff is bad!" One on hand, I think this movie speaks much more than it's intended, too.

    Again, as I said, it's going to be hard for me to separate my nostalgia from R2 and my affinity for it. I really like a lot of the places R2 goes because some are very unexpected places. OCP WAS successful in making RoboCop their controlled product, with the crazy directives. I like this approach versus what Miller was trying to do with directives controlling society and all of that because it's kinda fresh. How many movies and stories have we had about society being oppressive and all of that? I think it's much more unique to go in the direction R2 goes.

    I also like that R2 didn't pit Murphy and Faxx at odds so much. Cain/RoboCop 2 ended up being much more of a metaphor of "crime" anyways and made for a logical adversary. I don't think that the whole drugs/drug lord angle was the best, but I think it worked well enough.

    I still think that statement at the end of R1 from the Old Man is about as blatant of OCP owning RoboCop as it could get ("Nice shooting, son. What's your name?"). The Old Man knew exactly who RoboCop was. He had a full briefing from Robert Morton, and he's the president of the company. It's the moment he's the proudest of being the president of OCP in that this...thing they've made is the most successful thing they've made. The next step is to control their product, create more products (the "bigger and better" mentality, of which OCP is a large part of in capitalist society, and usher forward to Delta City - the dream in which OCP would control a whole city.
