    The apocalyptic After Hours of Los Angeles. This film really knocked me on my ass the first time I saw it. There is some corny interaction between the main character and his love interest, which bugged me the first time and bugged me again, but it is really outweighed by all the things I love about it. There is a great sense of urgency throughout, and it has that "endless night" vibe that I love, good build on the public panic, great scenes of that panic at its height, and a bunch of fun shots with that spinning clock at the diner. And O-Lan Jones!

    I have so many questions... Mostly, why does almost every tertiary character seem to have a much more interesting journey than our protagonist? Also, did they cut together, find it was only 60 minutes, and add 30 minutes of wandering?

    That said, I laughed harder than I have in a while. 9 stars.

    Don't fall in love kids, we're all just gonna die a gruesome death in some pointless nuclear war anyway.

    You Have 90 Minutes To Comply: The New Year Project

    Don't you love it when a romantic comedy all of a sudden turns into an end-of-the-world nuclear panic thriller?

    I clearly made the right decision not reading anything about Miracle Mile before I watched it. I can't even remember how much I read about it to include it in this project in the first place, but I'm just glad I forgot it, whatever it was. If you've not seen, don't…

    Occasional stumbles don't derail this incredibly bleak movie. By sticking with the protagonist throughout we share his experience of the escalating out of control confusion and sometimes bizarre interactions as people move in and out of his immediate sphere of experience. An effective low budget apocalyptic character-thriller.

    I've been on a few dates that ended in full-scale nuclear war as well.

    Not without a few plot holes, and a little bit of 80s cheesiness, it is an interesting story, nonetheless. Watchable.

    A low-key disaster movie soaked in believable paranoia, Miracle Mile reveals itself more as a West Coast After Hours than a shoddier Earthquake. So many high-concept ideas fall apart because they refuse to acknowledge actual humanity in the face of "movie" humanity, characters making decisions based on pre-conceived behaviors and plot mechanics. What makes Miracle Mile special is its askew POV on people in the face of crisis: who saves who? What would you take with you? What lengths would…

    There's a lot to like about this movie, but it's weighed down by a script that relies on characters making completely idiotic and arbitrary decisions to contrive drama and suspense. I really wish this was better, there's some amazing stuff in here.

    a wonderful mixture of all the good things like all-nighters, high concept sci-fi and Tangerine Dream.
