Escape from New York

Sundays always call for a treat. This one I feasted on John Carpenter's 1981 hit Escape from New York. Things I had forgotten since I last saw it about 10 years ago:

- It starts with terrorists hijacking Airforce One and crashing it into a Manhattan skyscraper
- Isaac Hayes is The Duke
- It has fantastic green wireframe 3D graphics - which were not created with computers, but with models, reflective tape and blacklight
- It had an epic poster, that clearly inspired a little scene in the recent Cloverfield
- The president survives the plane crash in a big orange protective egg

Here's the trailer, including 3D plane crash:

And here's Robert Johnson & Punchdrunks playing the theme in Stockholm 2002:
