Demolition Man

Last night, I read about Wesley Snipes on the net. And, unfortunately, it is not about his new movie. It is not even about any movie in general. As it happens, Mr. Snipes was charged with tax fraud and conspiracy. But he was later acquitted of those charges. But he was still found guilty of three misdemeanor charges of failing to file tax returns. And he could face up to three years in prison. One year for each charge. You can read the news on CNN’s website.

I really wish him well during this time. This is not going to be easy for him. But it will especially be hard for his wife and children. I have to admit that I liked his movie. I remember seeing him in Demolition Man, playing the antagonist to Sylvester Stallone. They were both put in suspended animation. And are later awakened in future Los Angeles where the people are peace loving. The funny thing is, when they were put into suspended animation, they were subject to an experiment that literally ‘writes’ new abilities into their brains. Where Snipes gets the deadly and cool abilities like Martial Arts, Sly gets more passive abilities such as knitting. I still remember the action is quite good.

But despite the action, the scene I remember most is where Sandra Bullock’s character takes Sly’s to her place. You have to see it for yourself. It was very funny! The only problem is where to find this movie since it was released around 15 years ago. The only place I could find it is on Amazon.com. I hope you have better luck than me, and are able to find it on a rental near where you live. Good luck!
