Symptom 63: This Film Will Give You Joy Joy Feelings

We kick off Sci-Fi Fondu, our exploration of cheesy science fiction with 1993's Demolition Man, the pun and cliche filled romp staring Sylvester Stallone, Wesley Snipes, Sandra Bullock and Captain Ben Maxwell from Star Trek The Next Generation. Ok, you know him better as the warden in The Shawshank Redemption.

This movie is often dismissed as another 90's action film with terrible comedy writing that panders to the lowest common denominator.  Yes, it is all of those things, as well as awesome. The strange thing is that as this film ages the message beneath it seems to grow more and more relevant.  But, this month is about cheesy science fiction and not the deeper meaning, so while there is a deep message about a stratified society controlled by extremists and the dangers of trading freedom for safety, rest assured we know the only question on your mind - how do the three seashells work? Well, we have an answer or three for that.
