Escape from New York

Escape from New York ★★★★

Movies just used to be cooler than they are now. The worse CGI and film quality just made for more creative and interesting choices. 
Snake is obviously awesome and almost hilariously so. How does everyone know him? Why do they all think he’s dead? why do they all already have such a crazy opinion on this guy that we have almost no information about?
I really liked the movie, but the second half disappointed me (minus the ending).After snake is captured, brain becomes a central character and i don’t care about that guy. maybe that’s just me but thought it was a misstep. 

Really wish he’d killed the police commissioner at the end. Woulda bumped up the rating for me
