This week we are going to take a hard left turn after last week's Back To The Future trilogy chat. That was a ton of fun and full of nostalgia, but this week we are going to go into the gritty side of film. From the master himself, John Carpenter, this week we discuss Escape From New York!

Your's truly has been hosting The JoBlo Sunday Night Movie Chat for two years now. I can honestly say, it's one of the highlights of my week. It doesn't matter what movie we are talking about, so long as the discussing is fun and sometimes enlightening. I've learned a lot about many different movies over the past couple years!

All you need to do is head to OUR CHATROOM at 7pm EST and make sure to log in with your MFC username and password. You are encouraged to bring up comments or questions about the movie at hand, or feel free to just hang out and and see what everyone else is chatting about. The regulars are extremely friendly people that will definitely make you feel welcome. And believe me, they are very, very cool schmoes.

And please remember this. Be respectful of others and their opinions during the chat. It's great to have multiple opinions of movies in the chat. I love that. What I don't love is for people to be insulted or badmouthed about their opinions. It's meant to be fun. Directly insulting someone and/or trolling people will get you kicked from the chat.

Escape From New York! is one of those movies that is just plain cool. From Snake Plissken, my all time favorite anti-hero, to the eerie setting of New York City as a prison, there is a lot to love. The cast is full of some of the all time greats. The script is tight. The action is never dull. What more could you want! The fact that John Carpenter's birthday was this week makes it all the more perfect.

Join us this Sunday night at 7pm EST and get ready for some fun ass kicking from one of Hollywood's best badasses. All you have to do is click the picture of Snake showing why he's the man below!

Extra Tidbit: Happy (belated)birthday to the master of horror, John Carpenter.

If they make another, they could easily use Russell. Have him a little grayer, but still kicking ass with the eyepatch. Of course, give him - Russell - a strong script to work with. Something to send off the character in a good way.

I may join this chat this coming Sunday...;)

Great film! I wish they would make another one, but if they do I doubt Russell will be involved. I don't count Escape from LA as even being a sequel. it was pretty terrible!

Great film, and some ingenious practical special effects too. Carpenter kicked ass back then.

What are the odds. I actually just watched this last night on Blu Ray.The Blu Ray is awful by the way. Good quality, but damn some special features would be nice for this amazing film.
