I actually like the sequel. It's practically both a remake and a parody of the original at the same time and is ridiculous in the best way.

First titties I ever saw. By accident. Mom took me to grandma's house, parked me in front of the TV. Free HBO preview. Swamp Thing. I think the second was Clash Of the Titans.

Escape From New York Opening Credits (With Original Theme & Prologue)

One of my all-time favorite themes.

"The rules are simple. Once you go in, you don't come out..."

Greatest movie ever made.

I was 12 years old when it was released and made my older sister take me to go see it on opening night (it was rated R, I believe, so you had to get an adult to go with you).

Escape, the Thing, and Big Trouble in Little China represent the Holy Triumvirate of concentrated awesomeness, for which I regard John Carpenter as the greatest director of all time.

Good Christ, I miss movies like this...

No, Swamp Thing has come forward in recent weeks and made a public apology for his actions and behavior in the past.  They were wrong and if anyone was offended by them, he was truly sorry.  He has worked to evolve into a Thing that is worthy to interact with Today's Swamp.

You need to make it a Holy "Quadvirate" and add "They Live."

The Prince of Darkness and In The Mouth of Madness have their charms as well.

Escape from NY
Escape from LA
Escape from Planet of the Apes

They were just mailing it in at that point with cheap explosions and flipping Jeeps.

You and I are completely in agreement on this.  If there were to be a Fark Film Festival, one day would have to be devoted to those movies.

I repaired security systems in East St. Louis where much of this was filmed in the 90s. The burned out dilapidated buildings were very real. The last time I was there, Bill Clinton was giving a speech in front of the newly constructed Walgreens and strip mall which he was taking credit for as part of his "first black president" schtick. Interesting place to say the least.

He did pretty good in rehearsals, but when he put on the eye-patch, the lack of depth perception made it difficult to pull off in the one take they wanted.

Did you use Obama's time machine for that filming of a movie in the 90s that was released in the early 80s?

I didn't say I was there for the filming. Just that I was there and it looked just as burned out and dilapidated as the film shows.

Less confusing would be "I repaired security systems in East St Louis in the '90s, where much of this was filmed" or "In the '90s, I repaired security systems in East St Louis, where much of this was filmed."

I realize that and I suppose that if I had Obama's time machine that sentence would be the one thing I'd go back and change.

"The president of what?"
"That's not funny, Plisken."

"Tell him..."
"Tell me what? What did you do to me, asshole?"

"When I get back, I'm gonna kill you."
"The Gullfire is waiting."

Those two actors were gold when they faced each other.

For sure.  And it's a bummer he wasn't alive long enough to be interviewed for the documentary.

if you want to see some wonderful Adrienne Barbeau footage track down a copy of Roger Corman's adaptation of Bram Stoker's Burial Of The Rats. AB is in charge of a bunch of beautiful women who dance about. and there's a movie in there too. good stuff.
