ALIENS V ROBOCOP: The Battle for the Best Movie Ever Made – a four-part essay/argument with Kit Power. (January 2021)

Essay one – The Opening Statement – at Ginger Nuts of Horror

Despite all the guns, gore and military ‘grunts’, ALIENS is really about a mother who has lost her child and a child who is in dire need of one. It shows just how far a woman will go to protect her ward. And if you go ahead and flip that on its head, you realise that the Alien Queen has exactly the same prerogative. It’s an epic showdown between two formidable matriarchs. Survival of the fittest.”

Essay two – The Case Against – at Ink Heist 

Satire uses humour, irony and exaggeration to ridicule and expose with the intent to shame individuals or corporations into bettering themselves. This is exactly where ROBOCOP fails. By melding man with machine in an attempt to create a more efficient method of law enforcement, it suggests that this is the very solution that these aforementioned companies need.

Essay three – The Corporation’s Legal Teams Get Involved – at Divination Hollow Reviews 

You state that my use of the name of “ED-209” is in flagrant violation of OCP patents and copyright. I ask that you prove to me exactly where I have used this name inappropriately or incorrectly. Need I remind you that OCP created a giant, artificially-(semi)intelligent robotic machine-gun which malfunctioned in a crowded boardroom and gunned down one of their employees, and they called it a “peacekeeping machine”. A little naïve, I feel.

Essay four – The Final Battle – at Sci-fi & Scary 

“It mirrors the time-honoured human tradition of knowingly sacrificing a group of people if it appears to serve the greater good. ALIENS shows us that while war might seem unavoidable, it comes with an incalculable price. The number of weapons you have and troops you command mean nothing; the real tally of conflict is human lives.”
