I love movies. I love old movies. I love weird old movies with dumb premises that take place in the future. Rollerball had all the right things going for it. It was touted to me as Mad Max with roller skates.

This was the capstone of a pretty hilarious movie night. Barbarella was namedropped in our previous viewing choice, Bio-Dome, which reminded me that 1) it existed and 2) I hadn’t already seen it, although I probably should have. I had no idea what we were in for. The movie is ridiculous, candy colored, unsexily sexual, and pun-laden. The special effects are as brutal as the plot.
First on my list of 1980s time cop future robot dramas that I missed the first time around was Blade Runner. I was expecting it to be good, but had no idea it would be gorgeous.
