Escape From New York

The world’s greatest leader is a hostage in the most dangerous place on Earth. Now only the deadliest man alive can save him. John Carpenter’s pulse-pounding action smasher is the pinnacle of big screen badassery, a timeless cult classic of defiant anti-hero cool that helped usher in a flawless decade of film perfection for the genre auteur. And Kurt Russell’s Snake Plissken is cinema’s supreme symbol of renegade radness, an eye-patched outlaw equally adept at cracking skulls and cracking wise. There’s no doubt about it, Escape From New York is the ultimate post-apocalyptic jolt, a breakneck thrill ride that’s equal parts style, energy and attitude made by a team firing on all cylinders. It’s got a blazing soundtrack from Carpenter & Alan Howarth, stunning scope cinematography by Dean Cundey and the manliest supporting cast ever assembled: Lee Van Cleef, Ernest Borgnine, Donald Pleasence, Isaac Hayes, Harry Dean Stanton & Tom frickin’ Atkins!

Big Trouble in Little China

At the perfect intersection of ancient Chinese mysticism, rampaging maniacs and big rig trucking lays the best actor / director combo of the ‘80s having the most foot-flyin’, laser-blastin’ fun of their illustrious careers. Director John Carpenter distills years of Hong Kong cinema, wizard battles and chop-socky while re-teaming with former Disney star Kurt Russell to unleash the ultimate ass-kicking in a search for a girl with green eyes through the mysterious underworld of Chinatown. Featuring rapid-fire, eminently quotable dialogue, a pre-Sex and the City Kim Cattrall and the legendary James Hong as the villainous Lo Pan, Big Trouble in Little China is maximum-concentration cinematic TNT! And remember, it’s all in the reflexes.
