Soylent Green Movie - Check this out.

Hey everyone got a really good 70's syfy movie here for you called Soylent Green. Thought it was interesting that the director Richard (Dick) Fleischer included a lot of stuff like inflation and even a police state with no rights to protect yourself from search and seizure, green house gaess and even to related his idea of GMO's of people being fed to one another though government hand out (food). Check it out. Buy it I'm sorry i cant find / post the full movie clip of it but here's some few clips from youtube check them out. Hope this makes front post like 12 Angry Men.

Both great classic movies. Enjoy!

I believe I first watched Soylent Green when I was 10 or so

I believe I first watched Soylent Green when I was 10 or so, maybe 11 (early 80's).

"Soleil vert" (literally: "Green sun") was the French version:

http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soleil_vert_(film)

(it was probably one of my father's pick, some evening)

I also remember it kind of traumatized me for several weeks (or was it months?) after the viewing.

Well, "traumatized" is probably exaggerated, but it made me ask myself many unpleasant questions about what the world of adults around me could potentially pretend to be, you bet.

Retrospectively, I'm glad I watched it because it certainly contributed to make me very defiant of all sorts of ideas that promote the "management" of people and their needs as impersonal, blind folded collectives (staying fuzzy because I don't want to spoil the plot here).

(And further study a few years later after I watched it, in human history rather than consuming only fiction, confirmed all my fears.)

It's a pretty good fiction movie.

The message/warning it conveys is also pretty harsh, but still good to know by many, I suppose.

Anyway, Soylent Green was one of those things that made me lose my innocence with this world way before I lose the other one with women... "j/k" ;p

Definitely.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

Loved the movie

I saw this when if first came out. Loved the movie then and love it now. Unfortunately it isn't on Netflix but you can still order a DVD of it online. This movie from 1973 was guessing what it would be like today and was right on most things. The thing they got wrong is that food isn't scarce - yet. Food like strawberries were only for the rich. For the rest of humanity there was soylent green. As Charlton Heston said in the movie, "Soylent Green is people!" It's a cult classic!

Earth Abides

Some of you might find this book interesting...

A disease of unparalleled destructive force has sprung up almost simultaneously in every corner of the globe, all but destroying the human race. One survivor, strangely immune to the effects of the epidemic, ventures forward to experience a world without man. What he ultimately discovers will prove far more astonishing than anything he'd either dreaded or hoped for.

I am going to put it on my list. In return, you should check out A Canticle for Leibowitz:

It is a good one.

To Serve Man

We receive several warnings about the dangers posed to us in our society from the film and entertainment industry. The climax of this movie, where Charlton Heston screams those famous words reminds me of the famous twilight zone episode, To Serve Man, where the hero tries to inform the victims of their fate, and screams, "its a cookbook!". Of course you can't forget about the Matrix "...I've watched them liquefy the dead and feed them to the living..."

James Corbett on Solent Green, Caution Spoilers

This month on Film, Literature and the New World Order we talk to James Evan Pilato of MediaMonarchy.com about Soylent Green, the 1973 sci-fi movie based on the 1966 novel Make Room! Make Room! by Harry Harrison. We discuss the differences between the book and the movie, the eminent personage who wrote the introduction to the book, and how the story has been used to predictively program some of the favourite memes of the eugenics propagandists

Interesting phrasing

In the post, dethcorebree used this phrasing: "people being fed to one another though government hand out"

I have seen this movie, fairly recently (last three years or so), and it struck me fairly hard; the scenes where the "dump trucks" that gathered the protesting humans seemed eerily similar to what's going on with the "free speech zones" etc.

When I saw the above though, it made me realize that the movie is an allegory and a warning. We are already being fed to one another through government handouts -- my earnings are "taxed" at around 50% and given to who knows who.

That means half of what I'm doing is being fed to others.

Makes one angry. Anger motivates change.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

Predictive Programming

This is a 1973 movie taking place in NYC in 2022, population 40 million. Predictive programming is widely used to get you used to an idea so that when it actually happens, you will accept it because it seems "vaguely familiar". I learned about this from listening to Alan Watt, who is no longer broadcasting on RBN (as of Oct. 10, 2013), but who has over 1000 hours of talks on his site, (below my post). You can download Soylent Green free at: http://thepiratebay.se/search/soylent%20green/0/99/200 Cheers!

That lady talking at 3:38 in the video.. Thats got to be T'Pau from the Star Trek:TOS episode Amok in Time..

She was a high ranking official overseeing Spock's marriage ceremony.

Celia Lovsky

Your right! Celia Lovsky played T'Pau.
She was also married to Peter Lorre.

Scary dialog:

I'll always remember the dialog between Heston's character (a cop)trying to justify his job and telling his room-mate... "if you're not a cop, you're nobody". I'm paraphrasing of course.

God forgives always. Man forgives sometimes. But Nature never forgives.
