Heartless


This movie is so crappy, it'll be a cult classic within a few years, promise. It only got a 17% fresh rating, but this movie can really hold its own against Mad Max, Rollerball or Running Man. It's campy and absurd, but has a lot less hand-waving then typical in the genre. If you obsessively play Fallout and masturbate to Omega Man (Massacre) then this movie is for you. If you've never heard of The Quiet Earth, then stay far, far away.

Oh yeah, it has Ron Perlman. If you only know him as that big red ape, then you shouldn't watch MC. But if you have the special collectors edition of City of Lost Children, then grab this movie next time you see it on the shelf.

I'm weirded out that you know that I masturbate to Omega Man...

I whack to anything Charlton Heston. Even his tombstone. You seen the Road yet?
Massacre
Yes. Incredible movie. Setting was just like Point Lookout, minus mutant hillbillies.
Spoiler
Looks cool. i am gonna download it. biggrin.gif

It was great, though I thought the Father was a right idiot. He did everything fundamentally wrong in basic survival.
Going into a locked basement, traveling in the open on a stretch of road, allowing his son to dictate the things he did, etc.
Massacre
Exactly. It's not even basic survival, really, it's just common sense.

I liked the raiders, though. They even had a guy wearing a mask, a slight nod to the more over-the-top post-apocalyptic movies and other media. The only tie to movies like Mad Max, actually. I liked the realistic tone.

I never understood why in those movies everyone dressed in too much leather and hockey masks, like they were a psuedo-porn slasher rock video. You couldn't even argue that they found it that way, unless our ideas of fashion drastically change in the far future. Ladies, you may wear the caps of warheads on your breasts now if you like. I liked that in Fallout the super-mutants wore tires and used shopping carts as backpacks.

The raiders in the road were awesome. I'm sure with a good rifle I could take out 4 or 5 of them in a go, but I know in real life one stray bullet is all it takes to kill me. I'd hide when I was able, fight when I had the sun to my back and higher ground in my favor, but really, nobody every survives an insane all out slug fest. Which is what made MCs nice. Not to spoil, but pretty much nothing survives that movie.

haha i notice that too. and i blame that fashion to Matrix. they make it looks cool but after a few more movies and it starts to annoy me.

They wore football pads and hockey masks in the Matrix? Never mind that most of the noteworthy post-apocalyptic films (Mad Max, A Boy and His Dog) came out before The Matrix. I forget what country you're from, Spoiler, but I'm going to assume you're from somewhere that excuses your lack of American film knowledge.

Not being a dick, just trying to explain things to you in a dickish manner.

I was talking about the leathers only, not really about the football pads and hockey masks. I remember Mad Max, that's the one that makes Mel Gibson famous. but never heard of the other one.

So not a dick but dickish only? lol any way yea i am just about 2000 miles from America. We have talked about it before in some old posts. Bear with me for my english and flim knowledge.

The original post in not translatable to foreign english learners, but this movie appealed to me, and now that you've mentioned it, I probably will rent it.
