The Running Man dvd
« on: January 25, 2007, 01:56:20 pm »
just picked this up a week or so ago.. watched it, first time seeing it in years.. people forced to play a death-match game show in a not-so-nice future.. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Yaphet Kotto, Jim Brown, Jesse Ventura, Maria Conchita Alonso, Richard Dawson.. oh, and the guy who played Oddjob in Goldfinger..
some interesting extras.. a documentary about reality TV's (r)evolution, and another about civil liberties in post-9/11 society..

You'll never see this kind of casting in a mainstream action movie again...and not just because Dawson and Prof. Toru Tanaka (as Subzero--not Harold "Oddjob" Sakata, Hype'!) have passed. It's all young(ish) pretty boys (and girls) now--even when the script doesn't call for it.

(Nobody tell Jim Brown I said he wasn't pretty. :-X)
