Help Us Make An Awesome Car Movie Poster For The Jalop Film Fest

We've probably never met, but I want you to help me create something amazing. You may have seen some of my Jalopnik contributions over the years, such as the Speed Racer and Mad Max photoshoots. I'm an advertising photographer and filmmaker that loves photographing movie and TV cars in my free time. It's an obsession,… » 8/06/14 12:15pm 8/06/14 12:15pm

I Just Saw the Original RoboCop for the First Time and It's AMAZING

In advance of the big RoboCop reboot opening this week (starring Joel "You're My Ride, Linden" Kinnaman!), I thought it an opportune moment to take a look back at 1987's original robot-who-is-also-a-cop masterpiece that forever cemented the idea of a robot being a cop in the public consciousness.

The Robocop remake will shock you because it's so damn awesome

The Robocop remake, out in theaters today, is a pitch-perfect, badass update of a movie that is practically legendary. As if that weren't surprising enough, it also manages to revive that lost art of the 80s: the smart B-movie that stumbles a bit but still goes where blockbusters fear to tread. » 2/12/14 4:47pm 2/12/14 4:47pm

Giant RoboCop Statue Rises Just As Detroit Falls Into Financial Abyss

RoboCop rises just as the city of Detroit plummets further into a nightmarish financial abyss, just in time to protect a handful of residents from the fiscal shitstorm on the horizon. The future is here and it's in many ways as bad as what science fiction predicted. » 5/13/13 12:08pm 5/13/13 12:08pm

Meet Remake Robocop's Goofy New Motorcycle

Oh, Hollywood. You give us a great film that people come to love and adore, and then you wait a few decades and think you can do it better. Then you fail miserably. The Italian Job, Planet of the Apes, Death Race 2000 and The Day The Earth Stood Still are just some of my favorite films victimized by a horrendously… » 10/20/12 4:00pm 10/20/12 4:00pm
