    It is based on the same source martial that the 1st one was a short story call We Can Remember it for You Wholesale. So its not based off of the 1st movie. I kind of throw into the same vein as say any other movies based of a short story IE if say one was to make a new movie based off of Asimov's robot series I wouldn't call it an I-Robot reboot but that is just me.
    also here is the short story for you bit hard to read probably a better copy out their.

    I am withholding judgement until I see some pictures of the new ED-209.

    Secondary:
    Robocop and Starship Troopers are supposed to be satire? I thought one was an exploration of how awesome it would be to fight alien bugs with Michael Ironside as your tough but caring Sgt. and Denise Richards as your girlfriend, and the other was Dirty Harry meets the Six Million Dollar Man. And I love them both for it.

    Actually it was the so-so body. Not the hair.

    You didn't see it did you? There is a reason why I call it it a reboot not a re-imagining.

    True enough and your not wrong.
    Still though I personally still have a hard time calling it a reboot.
    I think it has more to do with it being based off a single source that doesn't have a really deep cannon of material. Things like BSG, Spiderman, Batman, et all have a lot of source material so you need a reboot to make them accessible.
