It was Julie's turn to pick this time and she set her sites squarely on director Charles Band! We watched two great movies from him, starting off with 1984's Trancers, starring Tim Thomerson and Helen Hunt. Borrowing heavily from a variety of sources, this is an ambitious and largely successful story that combines time travel, mind control, humor and even a little romance. This is good, entertaining stuff. We follow that up with 1990's Crash and Burn, which wants you to believe it's a story about a giant robot, but is actually a post apocalyptic tale about corporations taking over after financial and environmental disasters ruin the world. It's another successful combination of elements that delivers in a variety of ways. We also ramble, a lot!
