Death Race Discussion

The Olympics ended on the weekend, and Hollywood released this re-imagining of the 1975 Corman cult film about the future of sports entertainment. Did anyone see it? Is it worth seeing?

And how good would it have to be to exceed expectations?

    Yes and hell yes. I really enjoyed it, lots of action, cars shooting at each other with lots of armor. Cars flying through the air burning. I mean, what is there to not like?

    I thought it was a great movie.

    Didn’t they? I mean the first one was just all out and was a dark comedy. The new one was based in a prison. I haven’t seen it but the change looked jarring from the commercials.

      I haven’t seen the new one so I don’t know if this applies. That said, if nothing else, I imagine they found it a bad time to have a topic in the movie be assassinating the president.

      (Do I need to put spoiler tags around something from a 33 year old movie? ;-) Better safe than sorry.)
