The Running Man, 1987

First Viewing, Signal Watch Party

A dystopian game show set in 2017 featuring people getting chased and killed by cartoon-like theme wrestlers is the highest rated show in 2017. Instead we had President Gameshow Host treating the presidency like his own tv show only with no prizes.

This film came out the same year as Predator and is not as good. Arnold Schwarzenegger says "I'll be back". Maria Conchita Alonzo exercises in a black lace teddy. Features two future governors, Arnie and Jesse Ventura. Predicted some deepfake face changes and misleading video editing. Maybe had two or three cute lines in it. 

Written by Stephen King without him taking responsibility for it.

Could have been better.
