27 April 2013


Birthday
William Moseley b. 1987

No, this hasn't magically become a blog about boy bands. Young Mr. Moseley is one of the actors who was in the Narnia series of films and many happy returns of the day.

Films released
Death Race 2000 released 1975 

Prediction: 2000: Frankenstein and “Machine Gun” Joe Viterbo are the co-favorites to win 20th running of the Annual Transcontinental Death Race.

Predictor: Death Race 2000, released 27 April 1975

Reality: Oh, this is a charmer. Screenwriter Robert Thom is responsible – if that is the correct word – for some of the oddest films made in the sixties and seventies, including this one, Wild in the Streets, The Phantom of Hollywood and The Legend of Lylah Clare. A fascist state has taken over America and has this annual cross-country race with points for traffic fatalities is run each year to keep the public entertained. And yes, it stars a post Kung Fu David Carradine and a pre Rocky Sylvester Stallone.

If the title doesn't convince you the story is told in the future, it has several touches that were popular in mid-century futurism, including food in pill form, monorails and of course, gladiator games.

It's kind of like The Hunger Games without the cute kids or the pretensions of seriousness. Don't get me wrong, the movie is plenty pretentious, but the pretensions are serious at all.

Looking one day ahead... INTO THE FUTURE!



Tomorrow, we look once again at the exciting future of 2013 in Los Angeles, as seen from 1988.



Join us then... IN THE FUTURE!
