Erin and Paul review two films about the exciting world of futuristic law enforcement. First: MINORITY REPORT, Steven Spielberg's 2002 Philip K. Dick adaptation, set in a world where a tank full of clairvoyant genetic anomalies allow the police to arrest people for murder before their crimes even happen; then, DEMOLITION MAN, the 1993 sci-fi action satire starring Wesley Snipes as a hyperviolent 20th-century criminal running amok in a wimped-out, politically correct future, and Sylvester Stallone as the cryogenically unfrozen supercop assigned to take him down. Three mysterious "precogs," or three mysterious seashells: which will prevail?
Plus: our quick takes on EVEN COWGIRLS GET THE BLUES, ALTMAN, PREDESTINATION, and BIRD PEOPLE.
