Escape from New York is my go-to clunky sic-fi fix.
Yeah, it's pretty bog-standard story and production-wise - there are a load of faux-computer graphics that looked great and futuristic enough in the 80s (and still hold up today with the world they help to build) but compared to my at-the-time standard sic-fi safe-haven Star Wars, it was all pretty cobbled together and kind of cheap.
But as a kid it was this one voice over that set the whole thing apart and gave it such a cold and unfeeling edge that made the thing so hostile and alien:
"The next scheduled departure to the prison is in two hours.
You now have the option to terminate and be cremated on the premises.
If you elect this option, notify the duty sergeant in your processing area."
Life is no longer sacred. You can save yourself and us some time and money by just switching yours off.
As a 12 year old that line was so creepy and so unthinkable and it still works for me.
