Does Detroit Deserve RoboCop?

  1. Am not sure what all the hype is about this Robocop thing...

    Even though the movie takes place in Detroit, it was mostly filmed in Dallas, TX.

  2. The D could use some laffs. Listen, if they can stick a statue of a charging bull in NY, than Officer Robocop wouldn't hurt any feelings anymore than say...oh I don't know....a giant fist and forearm hanging from a tripod.

    After that: Chicago = The Blues Brothers!
    Flint = Grand Funk Railroad!!

Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
