Escape from New York

Escape from New York ★★★★★

Wow. This is a perfect case for what the big screen can do compared to home video, even on the biggest TV. The scope is way bigger than I'd felt, the violence is still brief but more visceral, and the whole section from when Snake gets to New York to Cabbie saving him from the crazies feels like a full-on horror movie. No one genre defines what a masterwork this truly is.
