Best of the Worst: The Vindicator, Cyber Tracker, Robot Jox, and R.O.T.O.R.

  • Published on May 22, 2013
  • After numerous failed attempts with forgettable movies, the gang finally settles in for a robot double feature of Robot Jox and R.O.T.O.R. This episode was shot on a dark and stormy night, and much alcohol was consumed in order to properly come to terms with the madness that is R.O.T.O.R.

    So the weak protagonist lassos ropes around Rotors limbs and then he explodes, twice? Makes sense I guess.

    We laugh about making war illegal, but there actually is a thing IRL called the Kellogg-Briand Pact that does exactly that. It obviously didn't accomplish much, other than letting people add more crimes to the list at the Nuremburg Trials.

    ROTOR explodes at the end because they tied him up with det-cord. Which was established, checkov's gun style, at the beginning when Back Problems is removing a stump from a field on his ranch.

    The Vindicator is ok. CyberTracker should have been better with its director, Don Wilson and Richard Norton but soooo boring. Robot Jox is actually quite solid, and so is R.O.T.O.R.

    So I did some research on the "Robot Cop" in ROTOR, and he was a REAL robot cop the Addison, TX Police Department had from the early 80s onward. His whereabouts and uses are not well documented.

    7:10 You only have yourself to blame there dude, sounds hard to be a RLM super fan. :\ Sometimes I pity you for the movies you watch but this episode you're all just a bunch of whiny bitches here. ^_^ On Robot Jox being enjoyed, sometimes people will just suggest things you might like which isn't really a bad thing, at least you won't be "bored". 9_9 Btw, fuck you Jack and your thoughts on stop motion.

    The stop motion in ROTOR reminds me of my favorite Movie as a kid, "How to Make A Monster". Thinking back, it was such a low budget affair, that just made it funnier. It was meant to be a live action sci-fi horror/monster movie, but the everything`s so cheesy, I thought it was a comedy. Grade A Schlock.

    ROTOR is the greatest movie ever made. Notice how they stopped making good movies after ROTOR came out. That's because Hollywood knew that it was all downhill from there, so they stopped trying. ROTOR is perfection. Soon all movies will be ROTOR.
    But you glossed over the single best character in the movie. Karate Hostage.
    Bu allow me to explain the ending. Remember in the beginning of the movie Coldyron blew up a stump? He was using detcord, which is a real thing. That just isn't how it works.

    the first class of movie (class of 1999) is a really good movie, it did terminator 2 shit before terminator 2 was even made. and im wondering if in ROTOR, the buck tooth chef was the back problems guy and thats why they used the teeth, to disguise him. i mean they do look really similar, in hair color and in the face.
