Black Sunday ★★★★

It's only fitting to watch a film about a terrorist group who wants to detonate a Goodyear blimp carrying a payload of C4 and nails over the Super Bowl on Super Bowl Sunday.

Black Sunday takes a little bit to get going, but when it kicks into gear it doesn't let up. Peak 70s disaster porn, Bruce Dern swinging for the fences, special effects that have aged poorly, a cameo by Jimmy Carter, an ending that was ripped off for the end of The Dark Knight Rises, and a hard cut to credits that rivals the best of Argento "well the killers dead, films over!"

This is the good stuff.
