Awful film concerns android teachers at a violence-plagued high school.  Class of 1999 pretty much sums up everything that was wrong with genre filmmaking in the late 1980s–far-fetched storylines, egregious over-acting, awful costume designs, labored wisecracks…the list is nearly endless.  I happened to catch this at a dollar theater when it came out in 1990, and I felt ripped off then.  Even the usually-reliable Pam Grier didn’t help matters any.  I was able to pretty much eradicate it from my memory until I watched it again today.  I did notice this time around that there was a Nine Inch Nails song on the soundtrack (“Head Like a Hole”).  I must have discovered Pretty Hate Machine sometime after I saw this movie.  Watch it if you must, but I’m not recommending it.
