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.

    For years, one of my buddies and I would say goodbye by knocking thumbs-ups together while saying "crash & burn"
    Robot Jox gave me so many memories

    Emulators can move different due to being played on a curved tube screen. Or so I'm told.

    It's impossible not to think of Pacific Rim when you look at Robot Jox.

    I saw Robot Jox when I was a child and thought it was f***ing epic at the time. I wore the VHS out.

    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.

    It's sad they couldn't get into Cyber Tracker. Lots of hilarious technical errors but what makes it REALLY worth watching is the sequel, Cyber Tracker 2.

    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.

    OMG, I have been looking for ROTOR forever. I remember watching it as a kid and never saw the ending. and let me tell you, trying to find a movie about a robot cop end in finding nothing but robocop.

    Rotor blows up at the end because Back Problems lassoed him with det cord. The movie actually foreshadows it near the beginning when he lassos a stump with it and blows it up.

    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.

    There's actually two different versions of ROTOR that go by two different titles. There is ROTOR then there is the longer version called Blue Steel. The Blue Steel version makes it much clearer that it's supposed to be a satire/comedy. It's got a bunch of cringe inducing comedy scenes with back pain they cut out of rotor. Also robot cop breaks the 4th wall and says the movies plot is horrible and a terminator rip off at one point.
    So this was meant to be intentionally funny but someone took the film and cut out a lot of the comedy scenes in an attempt to pass it off as a serious film in the ROTOR version. The Blue Steel version is a bit more tonally consistent when it's obvious that the movie is supposed to be a spoof.
