"I am Iron-Man!"

Description: Cyborg transformation movies (There are probably some anime titles that I forgot)

movie title related
average rating MPAA rating watch rent buy
Robocop (20th Anniversary Edition) (1987)
  One of my favorite movies of any kind. Ken Russell called it "The greatest science fiction film since Metropolis". [It's too bad that GC doesn't carry the OOP unrated Criterion disc :( ] Don't bother with the sequels.
Full Metal Yakuza (1997)
Not Rated
  Fun Takashi Miike V-cinema parody of/homage to the above film.
Tetsuo: The Iron Man (1989)
Not Rated
  Hyperkinetic low-budget cyborg horror movie, and the first feature film by Shinya Tsukamoto, who has since acted in a couple of Miike films.
Tetsuo II: Bodyhammer (1992)
  Not as good as its predecessor, but worth seeing for Tsukamoto fans.
Tokyo Fist (1995)
Not Rated
  The tranformation in this film is an internal one, but I feel that it's very thematically simlar to the Tetsuo films. Tsukamoto's real-life brother co-stars.
Videodrome (1982)
Not Rated
  "Long live the new flesh!" A probable influence on Tetsuo The Ironman. [A Criterion Videodrome disc is on the way!]
Crash (1996)
Not Rated
  Again, the transformation in this film more internal, but I feel like it covers similar territory
Taxi Driver (1976)
  An influence on some of the above films? (Tsukamoto and Cronenberg are fans)
Robotrix (2000)
Not Rated
  Silly rabbit, Robotrix are for kids! (Sorry, couldn't resist!) I've never actually seen this one. See also: The Super Inframan (available as an R3 import)
Casshan: Robot Hunter (1995)
Not Rated
  Placeholder for Casshern (2004)
Steel (1997)
  The inspiration for Bibleman's costume design? :) Unseen by me. (Incidentally, it was shot by the same DP as Videodrome and Robocop 2)
Inspector Gadget (1999)
  I just wanted to put this on the same list as Miike and Cronenberg movies. Also unseen by me (the same goes for the V-cinema "cheaquel" to this film)
Army of Darkness (Director's Cut) (1992)
Not Rated
  Not exactly a cyborg movie, but I like Ash's groovy robot hand.
