Escape From New York (1981) - directed by John Carpenter and starring Kurt Russell, Lee Van Cleef, Adrienne Barbeau, Ernest Borgnine, Donald Pleasance, Tom Atkins, Harry Dean Stanton, Frank Doubleday, and the legend Isaac Hayes as The Duke…
Happy President’s Day. One of my favorite films of all time, hands down. In 1987, when the US President crashes into Manhatten, which is now a gigantic maximum security prison wasteland, a convicted bank robber, Snake Plissken, is sent in by the government to rescue him. Okay, the eye patch was a request by Kurt to Carpenter, and let him ride with it. Kurt has also gone on record and said this is his favorite character of all time. Funny enough, when this film was made, the wire-frame computer graphics were too advance for the time, so they were totally crafted practically. The computers voice was Jamie Lee Curtis, uncredited. Wow! All the matte paintings in the backgrounds were by James Cameron. Heck yes. Donald Pleasance was a recovered POW, so his scenes as a captured President were inspired by what was done to him. The burned out NYC wasn’t just the lower east side in the 80s - a lot of the burned out mess was filmed in St. Louis because of the massive 1976 fire that decimated buildings and left the town seedy. Even the St. Louis Union Station. In the big fight scene, Ox Baker wouldn’t settle down, so Kurt totally annihilated his groin to let him know he wasn’t fucking around. Plissken is based on Clint Eastwood, and the movie concept is based on Watergate! Kurt beat out Chuck Norris to play Plissken…thank the christ. At $7M, this was Carpenters first full union, 180 person feature film, and the guy slayed it - Im closing in. I can keep going, but all post, including all the rad miniatures, were done at Roger Corman’s spot in Santa Monica - Corman is a legend and a filmmaker I wish was around today…so many followed the masters lead…
This chump barely even sleeps.
All he does is watch Fox News like a parrot and repeats.
While he looks like a canary with a beak.
Why you think he banned transgenders from the military with a tweet?

"Update: After this story was published, Florida Agricultural Commissioner Adam Putnam postponed his proposed change in gun-licensing rules. “Now, barely 24 hours later, Florida legislators are set to vote at 1 p.m. on a provision that would weaken the state's background-check laws and allow people who file incomplete background-check forms to obtain concealed-carry permits anyway. The provision is simply one bill among a smattering of insane pro-gun laws filtering through the Florida Legislature — including bills that would let gun owners carry firearms into churches and schools. The bill's sponsor, Florida Sen. Kelli Stargel, told the Miami Herald/Tampa Bay Times Tallahassee Bureau earlier this month that Agricultural Commissioner Adam Putnam personally asked legislators to tuck the provision into the bill. There appears to be no rhyme or reason for the measure — no one has offered a full explanation as to how it would help public safety, other than arguing that "more guns make people safer." Instead, this appears to be a bald-faced attempt to drum up far-right support for Putnam's gubernatorial campaign. The commissioner and former U.S. congressman is running a hard-right, anti-immigrant, and almost nakedly pro-white campaign to take over for Gov. Rick Scott, who currently employs Putnam.” •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Not only does he do nothing to protect our country and its citizens within, but he falsifies and demonizes false enemies from foreign countries. Not only did he show no genuine compassion towards Cuban hurricane victims, not only does he show no compassion of the black community being unjustly harassed and murdered by law enforcement, thus taking a knee in protest while being condemned by Fuck up 45 for doing so, not only does he question and dismiss victims of assault, ridicule families of fallen soldiers, not only does he vilify the highest of our governments informant agencies, and flat out lie to his base, and therefore the world, and refute anything he feels diminishes his invalid, illegitimate presidency, he also lies to bolster himself In order to appear that he and his vile actions aren’t as fucktocious as they are, not only does he vilify the media, but through all those things he has openly and frequently condemned, he nonetheless continues to praise and protect spousal abusers, speak with nothing but the highest regard and admiration of Putin, who is one of our countries long time enemies, support the dismantling of our government and economic systems, strip citizens of their rights, and place inexperienced, inapt cabinet members to posts that many of them fight against and are actively destroying while using taxpayer money for luxury travel.
this most recent display of showing how little he gets a fuck about anything but himself was when just shortly after visiting the victims and survivors in the hospital for a photo op in which he smiled broadly and gleefully, while hugging no one, he and Melania shuffled off to Mar a Largo to attend a decadent Studio 54 themed disco party as some of the victims bled, and others were awaiting burial.
