OK, so you've believed in these crackpot theories for a long time.  So what?

 

NSA spying was once considered a crackpot theory too.  As were rocks falling from the sky.  Along with a heliocentric solar system.

The point: we, the prisoners of our devices, are too busy sucking up the entertainment trivia beamed into our brains and attacking each other to start an effective resistance movement.

^ That's such a great movie and has arguably become more relevant than ever.

 

Fun fact: they re-used the PKE meter from Ghostbusters in this same movie.  Only this time around it wasn't used for catching ghosts, but people.

Not all. If every city in the world fell tomorrow Humanity would go on just fine. The city is where the eaters who are the primary victims of this new overconnected culture live. The producers by and large do not live in the city. Take away the city and a new dawn of prosperity and peace arrives.

I think a lot of people around here have seen this "documovie" but if you haven't and you like IT intrigue, you may like 'Zero Days".

Let's start with Westerns.

 

The Magnificent Seven, the original. So many tough guys for once in their lives​ doing the right thing.

 

The Wild Bunch, more tough guys deciding to go out on their own terms.

 

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, John Wayne does all the heroic things and doesn't get the girl.

 

Sci-Fi

 

Day The Earth Stood Still, the original. A lot of dated material but great soundtrack and the scene in the cab with the Army closing in, Klaatu turns to Helen, tells her he is worried about what Gort will do if he is killed. Helen, not understanding goes, "But Gort's just a robot, what can he do?" And in one of the most chilling lines ever, Klaatu says, "There's no limit to what Gort can do."

 

War

 

Patton, ​the legend, the man, awesome soundtrack, decent combat scenes, good drama.

 

Downfall, in all it's subtitled glory. There's a reason that one scene has been parodied so much, the original is so powerful.

 

The Great Escape, even though it was bastardized by writing Americans into what was an all-British story, it is one to watch over and over.

The other day, Aliens 3 came on TV (Hollywood Suite) and it was very different than the theater and/or DVD release.

It made much more sense, and i actually enjoyed watching it.

 

I wonder why the theater/dvd release was so poor, when this alternate version was so much superior?
