03.29.14DVD Molly had never seen this so I thought that should be fixed. Great movie, still love the shit out of it. So bizarre and so well edited. Lord Humongous... man. What a movie.
09.03.07Netflix Now this is more like it! I don't think I'd ever seen the prologue to this before (where it shows footage from the first film in a pretty vague recap of history leading up to the movie) otherwise I wouldn't have been quite so confused about the state of the trilogy as a kid... but I'd definitely seen most of the movie many times before... and all the images and characters came flooding back to me. The little whirlybird doohicky with the skinny pilot, the feral kid with the razor sharp boomerang, the mullet dude, the mohawk football pad dude, the hockey mask Lord Humungus dude... why are all the bad guys so S&M'd up in this movie? Who cares, it's awesome!

Watching them back to back also confirmed a long-standing hunch of mine - that Wez the mohawked football pads badguy in this movie is also Bennet the chainmail vest-wearing big bad guy in Commando. I figure that's why he was cast... because otherwise I don't believe he's a physical match to Arnie at all. He needs to added baggage of being the head-butting Road Warrior psychopath to fill out his skinny arms and flabby midsection in Commando...

I really can't say enough good things about this movie. I bet it's the first post-apocalyptic movie I ever saw and I loved it so much that it spread out to the whole genre and I still feel it today. Other movies I really love like Blood of Heroes or Hardware I never would have watched if I didn't already love The Road Warrior. Great movie.
