Turbo Kid

Turbo Kid ★★★★

This is my gnome stick!
-Apple

Don't even know where to start. While some movies go for that 80s feel, Turbo Kid feels like an honest to goodness post-apocalyptic film made in the 80s when BMXs, 8-bit video games and comic books were king.

I'm not just talking about the aesthetics either, everything from the story to the character archetypes are straight from the 80s. The not-really-cool kids turning out to be heroes, the older guy they look up to, the villain and his right hand man. The gore is just an added bonus.

Munro Chambers was great as The Kid, but I loved Laurence Leboeuf as Apple. Her character is the perfect balance of craziness and cuteness. Then to top it off you have friggin Michael Ironside as your big villain. It doesn't get more awesome then that.

This thing couldn't be more 80s if the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles showed up. The good ones, not the new ones...
