[Dunno why this popped up in my RSS feed today, as it's an older review...]

I can understand society writing off the old folks as useless baggage, because we do that all-too-often anyway, but a child?

Zero Population Growth was a hot topic right around the '70s.

Also, the trailer for the upcoming Death Race with Jason Statham looked really disappointing-- there *may* be some satire, but probably not even as much as in The Running Man, and the drab color scheme was a letdown after the fun goofy cars on show here.

The older reviews (7 to 8 years or more) have very short, often single paragraph, plot sections, and are not written to the same standards as I am able to today.  I have been updating one of them per month.  This is the latest updated review.

Ah, that makes sense!

Trivial aside: Junior Bruce is played by "The Real" Don Steele, who was an LA radio personality through the 60s and into the 90s on KRTH 101.

I love this movie but I have to admit that the upcoming remake does look like a lot of fun.

    THE 70's! THE 70's!! I want that decade back so badly; great music like P-Funk and great movies that inspired so much hope and promises for the future, such as Roller Ball, A Boy and His Dog and Death Race 2000. It seems that modern life is just as crappy as they predicted in those movies, except we don't have moon bases or monorails leading to major shopping malls.

This is such a beautiful post.  I think we should take Chris's advice to task, and demand that films of the fantastic genres emulate the 1970's as much as humanly possible, or else we'll never be able to tell what's true cinema, and what's Xbox.

Your weird wide web HQ for the BEST Cult and Horror Movie coverage!
