Famous names: Kevin Costner, David Brin

Crunchy goodness: 2


Copycat: This much-maligned flick is based on a much-loved novel by David Brin

Elevator pitch: This movie is like Road Warrior, except with a postal carrier instead of a motorcycle and a fascist dictator instead of a gang of asswipes.

Most painfully dated moment: That anybody thought Kevin Costner could direct a movie is such an entertainingly 1997 idea that you've gotta love this movie on that basis alone.
