Weekend Matinee: R.O.T.O.R.

It's hard to describe a movie like R.O.T.O.R. Not the plot mind you, but what it's like to watch it.

R.O.T.O.R. is a Robocop/Terminator ripoff from the mid eighties, that golden era when you could get anything distributed as long as there was something on the tape. It follows a police scientist (with the most badass name ever, Michael ColdSteel) who gets framed for murder by the department's newest robot enforcer.

As a conisuier of bad 80s genre movies, I own this and try to convince everyone I know to watch it. Once you fall into it's rhythm, the movie is utterly fantastic with it's over-the-top ridiculousness, however that's the problem. It's not like one of those typical bad 80s genre flicks that just hits the ground running, this one likes to takes its time. And then some!

So here's the clip for this week. Like the movie, this one is a slow burn, but if you let it develop you'll understand the forgotten masterpiece it truly is.
