Not the first R rated film to have toys based on it though. 😉
LOL, ahh the 80s… .they had toys based on aliens, terminator, robocop… HAHA
I can’t remember which was the actual first… but one of Aliens, Robocop and Predator was the first R rated film I ever saw. I turned 10 in 1986… so those movies came at a perfect time for me.
I actually think it’s true that they simply don’t make action movies like they used to… that era was simply full of amazing action films that IMO have been rarely (if ever) topped since.
Aliens, Robocop, Predator, Conan the Barbarian, Die Hard, Total Recall… .even lesser stuff like Commando and Rambo 2 were great in a campy while still being serious kind of way that you don’t see much these days.
As I continue to watch Robocop I’m kind of amazed how awesome it is… like it actually might be one of the best films ever made. I mean how many other films do what they set out to do so damn well?
