View Full Version : Troy's review of CLASS OF 1999
02-27-2005, 02:25 PM
Lovely review of this neglected drive-in classic, although I'm a bit surprised Troy didn't mention that the director, Mark L. Lester, had previously helmed CLASS OF 1984, especially since you take the trouble to point out that "the idea of examining school violence in its most extreme form seems a logical extension of 80s "social dramas" like My Bodyguard." Also, in addition to one part each of ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, WESTWORLD, and THE BLACKBOARD JUNGLE, I'd throw in one part TERMINATOR, since the look of the androids are a direct steal from that.

I have the unrated version on VHS and have seen the R rated version many times. I am hard pressed,too tell what exactly was added in the unrated version? Does anyone know?
They are both labeled 99 minutes on VHS. So I pressume,the cuts are very small and hardly noticeable.
Oh and Class of 1984 is getting a release from AnchorBay soon I have heard. I can not wait:D

There's a damn good reason I didn't mention that film - I haven't seen it. :)
