Run a similar ad, portraying Politician A as a saint-like super-genius and possibly the second coming of Christ, and Politician B as a child molester, Satanist, and crack dealer, ending with "Vote for Politician B!" It's not rocket science. Just because the world is stupid doesn't mean you can't make fun of it.
The movie itself looks like it'll be good, but I still don't like the black suit. The other one looks ok though, but what's up with that exposed hand? Did they not finish the costume in time? If his hand was undamaged in that explosion why not throw a gauntlet on it? That's a more obvious weak spot than Gohma's eye.

Went and saw it today and I have to admit, it was pretty good.
For a remake it actually stays very true to the original source material, yes, there are some differences (Lewis has gone from being a white woman to a black man), but it takes the story and gives if a polish.

So I decided that in lieu of much needed sleep, I would go see this movie today. I enjoyed it very much for what it was. I still prefer the original, but this one paid homage to it very well, even if it came up short in a few areas. The fight at the end against the ED-209s was pretty cool. It did kinda slow down in the 30-40 minutes prior to that. And yeah, the ED-209s were nowhere near as intimidating as the original. Perhaps that's why they needed to use about 5 of them.
