Kurt Russell is back as the Badass he was in New york just this time theres new co-stars and a diferent city. This time steve Buscemi is Ernest Borgnine's shoes this time around instead of being the cab driver he's Hollywood ED the guy who knows the street. The same could be said about Peter... read more

Snake Plissken is one of the most badass characters ever created and it is not a surprise that, after all these years, the finally decided to make a sequel to his first adventure. It is probably the most charismatic character in Kurt Russel's career and, once again, he delivered a solid performance. The main issue is that, unfortunately, the plot is way too similar to the first installment. I mean... read more

"I shut down the third world, you win they lose. I shut down America, they win, you lose. The more things change, the more they stay the same."

Arriving fifteen years after the low-budget cult classic Escape from New York, 1996's Escape from L.A. is the very definition of fun, trashy entertainment. See, whereas the original 1981 movie was a bleak, gritty post-apocalyptic tale, this ... read more

The future kind of sucks. (354 movies items)

"Reason for the future sucking: Apparently, Los Angeles, is separated from America due to a mega, super earthquake, degenerates and criminals have taken over the city, and theme parks are now under water. Keep in mind, the year 2013 was not imagined to be the year, social networking was big, a super earth quake had not happened yet, and Disneyland was still one of the happiest places on Earth. Year it takes place: 2013"
