There's something about this film that I just loved. It's a classic old school film that just hurtles through the plot quicker than anyone would dare to do in a modern film. Having the end somewhat ended by the tired old internet memes, I still enjoyed the film.

The way earth was depicted; a scorching hot hell hole with more unemployed and homeless than you could shake a stick at. I... read more

A tale of Earth in despair in 2022. Natural food like fruits, vegetables, and meat among others are now extinct. Earth is overpopulated and New York City has 40 million starving, poverty stricken people. The only way they survive is with water rations and eating a mysterious food called Soylent. A detective investigates the murder of the president of the Soylent company. The truth he uncovers is more disturbing than the Earth in turmoil when he learns the secret ingredient of Soylent Green.

Movies the giraffe watched in 2017: May (28 movies items)

"First viewing - May 16th I've been holding back on watching this one mainly because the ending has been spoiled & I kinda figured that mattered. Turns out knowing the ending kinda does ruin the film, or at least lessens the impact of the ending, which was disappointing. I thought the best reason to watch this movie was seeing the final performance from Edward G. Robinson, who plays the only character I really cared about. Everything else had its moments, but I failed to connect too much with Ch"

The future kind of sucks. (354 movies items)

"Reason for the future sucking: Over population. Just don't ask what the food, the people are eating is made of. Year it takes place: 2022"

25 From 73: My Favorite Films of 1973 (24 movies items)

"You know what goes really well with Solyent Green? Fava beans and a nice bottle of chianti. Charlton Heston, Chuck Connors and Edward G. Robinson (in his last film role) star in this solemn dystopian story that provides yet another chapter into the science fiction world's most famous and ultimate cookbook, "How To Serve Man"."
