Came for this, the finest line in living memory.

This was an MST3k or Rifftrax episode? Can't remember which one.

Absolutely awful. I feel so bad that an actor of Julia's caliber had to appear in this piece of shit.

Also, I think "Street Fighter" being his last movie was more of an insult to his career than this.

Julia was a big believer in public television and had appeared in several WNET productions before this, as well as pledge drives. This was the last of WNET's attempts at TV movie adaptions of sci-fi lit, the first two being one of some of Vonnegut's short stories and the other being the well received 1980 tele-film based on Le Guin's The Lathe of Heaven.
This one however, was not so well received. At all.

He was dying of cancer and knew that he only had enough life for one last movie. As I understand it, his performing in Street Fighter was a final gift to his grandchildren, who loved the videogame. Every day the director had to ensure Julia was on his drugs and that Jean Claude Van Damme was off his drugs.

Here's an article that goes into a bit more detail about the many problems with Street Fighter's production, including Raul Julia's health and Van Damme's drug problems:

I have seen the PBS Lathe of Heaven, and it's quite good. It's available on youtube. Those from the Northwest might delight in the attempts at making 1980 Portland look like a science fiction landscape.

Oh, I'm wrong! It was shot in Dallas. What the hell. Heesh.

This movie was a huge step backwards for anteaters. Anyone who enjoyed this movie or the MST3K episode it was in should check their privilege.

You would think the unedited version of the movie would be more coherent than the MST3k one, but it really isn't.

I know that building. They have a Quizno's.

Get 'em toasty sandwiches while you can; Quiznos filed for bankrupcy about a week ago.

I watched this movie on LSD in college. I'm pretty sure it wasn't the MST3k one :(

So it's not just my imagination that all of the non-airport Quiznos have disappeared?
