Our Science-Fiction-Social-Commentary exploration continues with the inescapable 80's action entry, the Running Man, loosely based on the book by Richard Bachman aka Stephen King. We discuss the world building and execution of both formats, along with the 1980s world that spawned both, and the super stark, startling reflections of our own world today. You may know this movie, but you may not know the story, or the powerful meaning behind it, and we share a fascinating talk about all the hidden and overt elements, in another deep episode!
