The Island Update

Anonymous comments that The Island, as much as it swipes from Logan's Run, actually swipes a lot more from a B-grade film called Parts: The Clonus Horror, featuring a nearly identical premise and plotline.

That film seems to have swiped from LR too, but The Island may have come a little too close for comfort. The producers of that movie -- apparently chiefly remembered now for being ripped on Mystery Science Theater 3000 -- are contemplating legal action against The Island, including a federal injunction against its further exhibition or distribution.

Eh, they'll get paid off a little bit.

Word to the wise: Guys, don't take "net points" in the movie. Gross points, gross points, gross points.

Loose shit: Yeah, I got net and gross points backwards. Eeesh.

I really did know the difference. Brainfart.
