The much-anticipated Robocop reboot starring Joel Kinnaman hits theaters today, and I'm sure lovers around the U.S. will be flocking to spend their romantic date nights watching eviscerations and explosions! Reviews haven't been terribly kind thus far, but I'm still curious to see how it stacks up against Paul Verhoeven's bitingly satirical original take. Anthony Kaufman's new Reel Science column will look at the science behind Robocop in a few weeks, so stay tuned.
Also worth checking out: IndieCade East, the country's premiere festival for independent video games will be at Museum of the Moving Image all weekend. I've been trying to get some regular coverage of video games going in this space, and am excited to see what great games emerge from the festival. Along with the games, expect talks, panels, and workshops celebrating independent games.
Happy Valentine's Day!
