Scanners

I don’t think I had ever actually seen this movie, other than that now famous head exploding scene (at least in GIF form). All in all, it’s not bad — I won’t say I loved it, and it dragged on a bit at times, and the acting is iffy (and McGoohan was apparently mostly drunk on set), but there’s still enough to like here, especially the psychic battle near the end, and the end itself. I’m glad I finally took the time to watch it.
