The future. 2019. A corrupt government. Martial law. Reality television. Truly, only Stephen King could write something so implausible.
This week’s episode of They Called This a Movie is another Twitter poll winner, and this time around, we’re welcoming Arnold Schwarzenegger to our pantheon of actors with the movie that places us in a 2019 that is only slightly more bleak than the one we just lived through: it’s The Running Man from 1987.
Crack a can of Cadre Cola as we discuss all the 80s cheese that this movie crams into its runtime. We discuss Richard Dawson’s MVP performance, the ridiculousness that is Dynamo, and the greatest end credits song of all time. We even take some time to pick our cast for the remake.
We are now part of Geek Vibes Nation, so be sure to check out their website and to look for us on their future podcast shows.
