The Running Man, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger ????

Save for some harsh language and brief nudity, this film is not too bad to watch, if you don’t mind violence. Arnold is at his best in this film with the classic line “I’ll be back”. The movie is a futuristic scene of Arnold, though innocent, being held by the State, and then put on a game show to play to the death. In the end, Arnold wins, though the movie never goes beyond winning a game show to destroying an evil empire. Such sophistication is not to be expected. A good film, that keeps you on the edge of your seat for the film. The only bad aspect is the terrible acting by Maria Alonso, the hispanic girl in the film. She doesn’t contribute to the film at all and should have been differently written into the script.

Rosemary’s Baby, starring Mia Farrow ????

This film does not have suspense or anxiety similar to other “horror” films. The stars come from the superb acting of Mia Farrow. Otherwise, the plot is a little stale. The story was most fitting to the 1980’s when Hal Lindsey’s books like “Late Great Planet Earth” was popular, and everybody was expecting an incarnate form of the antichrist. Perhaps that will yet happen, but certainly not in the manner portrayed in this movie. The amount of witchcraft talk is kept to a minimum, and witches are sold as warm, friendly people. The baby is never shown at the end of the film. This unfortunately breeds a tolerance for Satanic activity as acceptable, save for the occasional murders and ill-effects that happen in the course of the film. Not highly recommended, and directed by Roman Polanski, who should be setting behind bars, if not worse.
