Death Race 2000 (1975)

Heh,

So sad to say, with me being 42 and all, that I just watched Death Race 2000 for the first time. That was pretty hilarious; and I can totally see why it's a cult classic. Saw that it was being pulled from the NetFlix list tonight, and it had been on the list for quite a while, so just had to watch it.

It's amazing that Judge Dredd started 2 years after Death Race, and I wonder if there was some influence on 2000AD from it. I was reading on the 2000ad.org website that Judge Dredd himself was inspired by two things; Clint Eastwood as Dirty Harry and the Poster for Death Race 2000.

Pretty cool.
