More Movies Please!


May 29, 2020

Climb out of the deep freeze because it’s time for another B-movie bonus episode! This time around, Steven and Sean are hunting down the baddest mo-fo with bleached blond hair of all time in the Marco Brambilla film, Demolition Man.

What a tour de force ‘90s action film! Could there be a more perfect movie for trying times or any time? We think not! I mean, c’mon, we’ve got an ultra-violent bad guy and the police officer who’s sworn to track down and stop him both waking up in a non-violent future after being frozen for killing people in the past. A future that’s also completely filled with Taco Bells!

If that doesn’t make you want to turn this one on and watch all of it right this second, we don’t know what will.

We think this is a B-movie at its finest. It’s got strangely compelling characters that you want to root for and against, it’s got more explosions than a fireworks display gone terribly wrong, and it’s got seashells to clean yourself after using the bathroom.

(As a quick aside, what the heck were those all about? Steven has his theories, but they’re still a possibly horrifying mystery.)

We don’t want to totally give away our final verdict about this film here in the show notes, but we do want to say how thrilled we were to see a mid-‘90s movie that still holds up on the sound design and cinematography fronts. This may be one of the more ridiculous (in the best way) films we’ve seen, but that doesn’t mean the production wasn’t excellent. In fact, it was top notch!

To close this out, as always, be well.
