Soylent Green

When discussing his reaction to the film version of his book Make Room! Make Room!, author Harry Harrison described it as such: “murder and chase sequences [and] the ‘furniture’ girls are not what the film is about – and are completely irrelevant” and mentioned being only fifty percent satisfied with the final product.

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.

Hollywood has a long history of treating authors shabbily and using the bare bones of their work to scavenge for parts. Enter Soylent Green in which the author’s thoughts about the work prove to be true – the least interesting parts are the Hollywood add-ons that bog the paranoia down into something more conventional.   Aggressive sexual politics (be prepared to see why the women’s liberation movement was and remains an absolute necessity), dumb-downed det” read more

RS: 50 Best Sci-Fi Movies of the 1970s (51 movies items)

"Forget the shrieking, infamous, now-iconic climax for a second. Richard Fleischer’s 1973 film is actually less a sci-fi melodrama than it is a moody noir – more Blade Runner than Planet of the Apes. It takes place in a very lived-in, ragged New York City, where population growth and climate change have turned the city into a wasteland where people are forced to live like animals. (To be fair, when it comes to NYC, that’s always been the case.) Charlton Heston – back then, still the kind "

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"
