The King link is very tenuous.

Great movie, great book when taken separately.

The Long Walk was mentioned earlier, brilliant premise, owed a lot by The Hunger Games (which also owes Battle Royale).

My mate's mental wife would actually describe me in the same vein as the 'Butcher of Bakersfield.' :rolleyes:

She is just a low forehead. ;)

Written by Steven King, under an alias, starring Arnie in easily his best role ever.

I would say The Running Man is the greatest movie of all time
It's probably the greatest movie of all time if you're 12. While Ok for an action/sci fi film it is cheesey, over-acted, and pointless. A person with intelligence would say it's far from being the greatest movie of all time. In fact I'd say it's far from being great.

You're one of the cops. That locked up all of my friends. Burned all my songs. You turned the country into a jail.

I'm not stopping you enjoying what you like and if you like this movie then good for you. I think it's an OK movie for sure. But to say it's the greatest movie of all time is just plain dumb. Freedom of expression is a two way street. If you deny me the right of my opinion then aren't you just as guilty of turning the country into a jail. Grow up.

This reminds me of the time mantis stumbled into an Arnie thread to have a go and the only repsonses she got were Predator quotes

"You're one ugly mother******!"

Good times, OP isn't far off.

Nothing worth losing your head over though, hey?

Expression is one thing, but your opinion is literally wrong.

Am I wrong to think that "The Running Man' isn't the greatest movie ever? I don't think so, in fact I'm so right it isn't funny. I dare you to start a poll and just see for yourself. But then again why let facts get in the way of a good troll eh? I have never read such garbage as I have read in this thread. But then again coming from someone like you I'm not surprised.

Well yeah of course if you use your brain you're correct. That's the best part about this movie: If you think about it, it sucks. So don't think about it.

Stop being analytical for a second and enjoy this trashy awesome movie that is also the best movie ever made. And it is a fact that your opinion is wrong because, it just is, and I don't need to provide facts or logic because its the truth, and the truth shall set you free. And you can't handle the truth.

I am sure the results of the poll would be negative, but popular opinion seldom recognises true genius.
I'm not saying the movie is bad Caesar, in fact I thinks it's OK. I just laugh my ass off at people saying it's the greatest movie ever in the history of cinema. That's just plain dumb.
