Once in a lifetime, a movie comes along that predicts the future so accurately, it is both frightening and astounding.
This week's movie, Death Race 2000, is not one of those movies.
What it is, though, is a delightfully kooky romp across the country seen through the rheumy eye of Roger Comrna, as several professional racers with weird costumes and funny-looking cars race to get from New York to Los Angeles while murdering as many civilians as possible with their cars.
|Like Cannonball Run, but more murdery.|
Frankenstein has himself a new navigator for this year's race, a half-human/half-owl named Annie (Simone Griffeth) who, along with acting as navigator, nurse, cook, and sex toy, also happens to be the great granddaughter of Thomasina Paine (Harriet Medin), a woman who leads a rebel faction against the government in an attempt to put an end to the Death Race.
|I wasn't joking about the "half-owl" thing. Look at her legs.|
HOW IS SHE STILL ALIVE?!
|It must be his captivating smile.|
|See? We are not screwing around here.|
Larry loved this movie. That's it, really. He really, really loved it.
Derek picked the movie, so it's pretty clear that he's a fan. He believes this movie is a gateway movie to many worse ones.
So fire up the engine, pull on your latex body suit, and tune in to this week's episode!
