Capitalizing the "c" in Robocop is idiotic. I am looking at the DVDs of ALL seven movies right now. The only time "cop" is capitalized is when all the letters are. Otherwise, they spell it "Robocop." —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.69.152.178 (talk) 00:57, 2 April 2011 (UTC)


Dick Jones[edit]

Dick Jones is NOT the Senior VP of OCP. He is the Senior President. He is referred to this in the film several times. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.7.158.84 (talk) 15:33, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Nope, the senior president is The Old Man, not Dick. --Officer Boscorelli (talk) 19:04, 22 April 2010 (UTC)
Dick Jones is the Senior President. "The Old Man" is either the CEO or the Chairman. --Harizotoh9 (talk) 01:00, 12 April 2012 (UTC)
I was going to suggest that Officer Boscorelli rewatch the movie, but seeing as he's banned, I don't think that's necessary. Thanks for the backup there Harizotoh9. — Preceding unsigned comment added by SChaos1701 (talkcontribs) 21:42, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

RobocopRoboCop (1987 film) and RoboCop (disambiguation) – See Robocop (2014), RoboCop (character), RoboCop (comics), Robocop (franchise), etc. --173.51.29.188 (talk) 05:28, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
There are plenty of results in Google Books that focus on this film. In terms of determining a primary topic, the other articles are mere extensions of this film, which transcends the rest in having "long-term significance... it has substantially greater enduring notability and educational value than any other topic associated with that term".

  • Oppose This is the primary topic by far, everything originates from this film. DWB (talk) / Comment on Dishonored's FA nom! 23:39, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose - As the franchise originated from this particular film, this article about it is the primary topic so the move is not necessary here. Lord Sjones23 (talk - contributions) 01:37, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Strong oppose. The primary topic in this case is either the initial film or the franchise as a whole, and the original work should generally get the spot until it is clearly shown to be superseded, as when the original is not particularly notable but later installments make the series notable. This is the opposite case, where the original remains by far the most important installment in the franchise, more important than all others combined. bd2412 T 02:59, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Oppose at least until the new film is out and we have an idea if it surpasses or equivalent to the original. (It doesn't sound like it is, but one never knows). Come 2-4 months from now and this 2014 film has clearly become the new version of Robocop, then we can talk disambig, but not now. --MASEM (t) 03:19, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

Year movie takes place:[edit]

Recent change(s) placed the movie as taking place in 2014. There is nothing in the movie itself to indicate that this is the year the movie takes place in. The book suggests it taking place in the 2040s oor 2050s and the TV series suggests sometime in the 1990s but as for the movie itself? Nothing in it tells us the year. Edited the opening to the plot summary to remove the reference to the movie taking place in 2014. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 73.48.3.149 (talk) 22:29, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
