Sooooooo... I had two weeks worth of plans, maybe three, for our Friday viewings. But someone pulled their catalog off of Amazon Prime as near as I can tell. So, no Pump Up the Volume or Short Circuit for us. I'm in a bit of a panic, so I'm reaching for a personal favorite since it was pointed out it was on here by Jenifer.

It's a post-apocalyptic future of 1997, and America is perpetually at war. New York has been turned into one big penal colony, and Air Force 1 just went down nearby. The President's escape pod has fallen into the middle of NYC, containing the President and a recording which will bring an end to conflict.
The Feds happen to have just laid their hands on one of the toughest criminals to ever walk on American soil: Kurt Russell with an eyepatch.
Now, Kurt Russell with an eyepatch needs to enter NYC, retrieve the package, and make it back out before the bomb in his neck explodes. And he's gonna need Harry Dean Stanton and Adrienne Barbeau (which I think we can all say).
