Movie Review: Death Race 2000

(Note: In an effort to do more content, anything vaguely interesting I see/hear/play/go to will now get a review. I know you’re excited.)

Death Race 2000 (1975) stars David Carradine and Sylvester Stallone. It was made on a $300,000 budget. The concept is that in the year 2000, there is a transcontinental race where points are awarded for the more pedestrians you kill.

It sounds bad because it is. It was terrible. From the indescribable
soundtrack, to the cheesy lines (“A lot of people think you’re cute, but I just think you’re a big baked potato.”), to the numerous continuity errors, to the traps straight out of a Road Runner cartoon, this movie is terrible.

It’s also the funniest movie I’ve seen in the past year. I almost pissed
myself with laughter. Big thumbs up for nothing more than its pure
cheesiness.
