Has anyone seen Turbo Kid? Found it on Netflix the other day, and absolutely loved it. Intentionally meant to look sound and feel like an 80's action/sci fi movie. Great stuff.

It caught my eye the other day because the cover is strikingly familiar to TRON. I'll give it a watch though.

Watched it last weekend... best viewed with a group, and possibly some :beer: .

I liken it more to mixing the bad Mega Man 1 NES cover with biker gangs and really awful movies like Total Recall or Over The Top.
The synth based soundtrack is wonderful.


No really, when a movie released in 2015 is talking about a futuristic wasteland of 1997, you know what you're in for.

Wow, I'd never thought I'd hear anybody say Total Recall was an awful movie! At least not on any website where most everyone shares nostalgia for the 80's!
