Favorite 1980s Urban Dystopia?

So, got done watching the best one! Which one, you ask?

Mad Max? - NO! Being chased by big dudes in chaps in the burning sun? No, thanks!

Escape from New York? - NO! Same as above, only in a dank underground? And when the big dudes catch me, when they're done doing the obvious, then they kill me and eat me? No thanks!

Starship Troopers? - Oh, HELL NO! Same as above, only with a Fascist police state and bugs the size of Buicks? WTF is wrong with you?

No, I just watched my favorite urban dystopia. (Sigh) In it, I will...

Drive a pristine, 1940s era behemoth of a car. Fire engine red, please!

My favorite weapons will be a turn of the century, lever action carbine, and a sledge hammer!

I will speak in quips worthy of 7th grade male bluster and bravado!

My enemies will be a biker gang who really don't do much worse than smoke cigarettes and break some windows!

In my copious spare time, I'll make love to a soaking-wet, 19 year old Diane Lane, before doing the right thing and sending her back to her wealthy, "safe" boyfriend! Aren't I nice?!

Yup, that'd be it for me. The Elysian Fields. Shangri La. Valhalla. All rolled into one.

If you look him up on IMDB, the guy's actually worked pretty steadily. It's just been in straight to video stuff you've never heard of.

They always hire bums like me for jobs like this.
