Livin' In The 80s: BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA

John Carpenter’s filmography is the very definition of “better late than never.” THE THING, PRINCE OF DARKNESS, IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS… all films that met with box office failure and critic/audience dismissal on release, only to gain appreciation decades later, recognized as bona fide classics by later audiences. 1,030 more words

"Hey weren't you dead?"

Recently I watched both Escape from LA (1981) and Escape from NY (1996) starring Kurt Russel and directed by John Carpenter. These Sci-Fi post apocalyptic action films both depict the world in turmoil after major catastrophic events such as WW3 and the aftermath of biological weapon launched by the still existing Soviet Union as well as a the crime rates of the US rising by 400%. 776 more words
