Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
In my rush to post yesterday’s Ghostbusters pic before checking out of my NYC hotel for what I thought was a plane that was supposed to take me home (cancelled, so I got another day in the Big Apple) I neglected to give credit to Brian Michaels for passing that pic along. So, before we start today I wanted to give credit where credit is due for yesterday’s sweet image.
Today we have a rather sweet image of a man and his machine. Paul Verhoeven steps in to lend a hand as Peter Weller’s Murphy (aka RoboCop) needs a little tender loving care.
When I ran that Conan picture earlier this week I talked about the awesome Schwarzenegger/Milius commentary on that DVD. I guess badass commentaries are on my mind because the Paul Verhoeven RoboCop commentary is amazing, too. It’s in that commentary that we learn of Verhoeven thinking of RoboCop as a Christ figure (of course he does have a biblical basis… we all know that after Jesus rose from the grave he stabbed Judas in the neck with his metal spike-finger). That crazy Dutchman is a blast to listen to, so if you haven’t given that commentary a spin, make it so!

Tomorrow’s behind the scenes pic celebrates me being snowed in in NYC with a look at a Christmas classic.
