It's always interesting to look back at a science fiction movie to see how accurate it was in a predictive sense. Although we haven't yet hit the year 2019, I can safely that The Running Man is right on track. It's set in a totalitarian police state where criminals have the option to participate in a deadly gameshow. Maybe it's me, but with the combination of a huge national deficit, the growing reliance on prison outsourcing, the national obsession with reality T.V. and game shows, the increasingly dubious morality of reality T.V. (whether exploiting children or drug addicts), and the public's pining for an American Gladiators reboot (okay, that's just me), I suspect we'll have something akin to the Running Man game show before too long.
There are other dated details in the movie, none more so than having former wrestler Professor Tanaka slicing a gong with a hockey stick while wearing a cod piece. This may seem like an insane piece of absurdism, but in 1987, this was a perfectly respectable display of Asian machismo. I can't explain why; if you were alive and cognizant in 1987, you'll know what I mean.
The most steely eyed of you may have noticed that one of the dancers is Megan Gallivan, who played Kiki in the immortal Teen Witch. She looks adorable here with her hair pulled up like that. I know that thing probably has an actual name, but since I don't know what that is, I'm going with "samurai scrunchie".
Anyways, here are some GIFs of the dancers. Enjoy.
