See? Not only is he equipped to go on tour with 2 Live Crew, but he can also kick ass in the 21st century! It’s magic!
This weekend, for the first time ever, I watched the 1990s action flick Demolition Man. For the last year or so, whenever anyone brought it up and I said I hadn’t seen it, I was met with dropped jaws and expressions of bewilderment, so when we were out on Saturday and Boy and I saw it on sale at HMV for $4, we figured it was a sign that I should break a fiver and get some ass-kicking education from Wesley Snipes and Slyvester Stallone.
And I have to say, it was kind of fun. I mean sure, it was kind of surreal at the beginning of the movie to see them referring to 1996 as the future (the movie came out in ’93) and to see them refer to Arnold Schwarzenegger as president (he didn’t get started in politics until almost a decade later), but it had a lot of fun little things about it.
I mean who can’t appreciate a movie that contains ridiculously ugly futuristic fashion, a villain who spouts horribly dated/hacky dialogue (he uses the word “Correctamundo” and threatens people with the use of the phrase “Simon Says”), a snappy syntho theme by Sting* and Rob Schneider making poop jokes**?
Anyway, if you haven’t seen it and feel the need for some good laughs/decent action, go out and rent or buy this baby like I did. There is no way you will be disappointed.
*I bet in the wake of his serious lute playing, “Desert Rose” phase, Sting wishes that all of humanity would forget about this song, but no such luck, buddy!
** Is it just me, or does that 3 seashell thing sound kind of painful?
