Dan Depeuter’s back to dip into THE DEVIL’S BUCKET LIST of classic nerd culture films at least one of us has miraculously never seen. This week we take a run at one of Jakob’s childhood favourites, the 1976 sci-fi spectacular: Logan’s Run.
1976 was an amazing year for special effects.
The overwhelming Box.
In other news, Mandi doesn’t believe “Ever been to sea, Billy?” originated with this commercial.
Charlie Chan: Racist or race-est?

Perhaps the definitive example of a nerd hurdle is one of those old Sci-Fi classics you know you should see but it just looks so crappy you avoid it for years. Such as the original 1968 version of Planet of the Apes, a movie so many have seen, heard and spoken evil about that you’ve avoided it. That is, until your friend Dan DePeuter (of the oft-mentioned DePeuter School of Overacting) comes to town and demands you see, hear and speak about it.
