my logan runneth over

Sunday, October 28, 2007

I was pleasantly surprised by my (rather neglected) Netflix queue when Logan's Run (1976) arrived a few days ago. I would guess I was about nine (c.1981) when I last saw this movie and I could barely recall any of it when I added it to my queue, other than the fact that it was science-fictiony and involved some guy named Logan... who was running... probably away from something... or something along those lines. And it was probably going to be a good nostalgia trip.

So I popped the DVD in and... Wow. Right off the bat, the special effects were terribly dated. The acting was so-bad-it's-good, even hilarious at times. And the plot line was thin and confusing. It had so much in common with my favorite movie, Tron (1982), that I couldn't help but love it. Plus, it had something Tron utterly lacked. T&A—Jessica (Jenny Agutter) is not at all hard on the eyes.

Okay, so I write terrible reviews, but how about that title, eh?
