I rewatched the sequel, Escape from Los Angeles a few months ago after it showed up on my DVR thanks to Tivo's "suggestion" feature.
...it was not good. I had honestly forgotten how absolutely horrid it was. The original is a timeless classic though.
I just watched both of them a month or two back,and yeah the second is still quite shit...the basketball scene is still good though,the surfing scene...hmm,not so good
The first still holds up decently enough,and yeah it also had Adrienne Barbeau
The problem for me is not the story for this remake,its all down to who will fill Snake's boots instead of Kurt Russell,right now i can not think of anyone who i would like to see as Snake,except Kurt Russell,and i guess he is too old
