Escape from New York

Escape from New York ★★★★

Carpenter. He is one of my all time favorite directors. The guy has made a few movies that I love, including the Thing which is my all time favorite horror film. I still remember seeing this on tv as a kid too. I know its a bit dated and cheesy, but I don't care. This movie is amazing from beginning to end. You've got some really cool characters, a great style, and what I feel is an amazing production. Kick ass music too.

I can't help but feel that Kurt Russell should take over Lee van Cleef's role in a remake. I know its probably blasphemy to think about a remake, and I have no idea who would be good as Snake, but I feel like it would be cool to see Russell in that role. Especially if the remake were competently made with modern effects. Who am I kidding, it would likely suck, but one could hope. I'm more than happy with the original anyway.
