Doomsday


That was a lot of fun! It turns out I like movies where the first third is a ripoff of Escape from New York, the middle third is a ripoff of Aliens, and the last third is a ripoff of The Road Warrior, especially if there are several other movies ripped off along the way. And it's got Malcolm MacDowell as a crazed ex-doctor who runs a medieval castle that still has the "Gift Shop" sign up. Hilarious!

Seriously, it's not a "good" movie by any stretch of the imagination, but I laughed out loud several times at either the directness of their "homages" or the (reasonably) unexpected things they did with them.
