Mad_Radhu: I thought that government was just in San Angeles, and they never really said what was going on in the rest of the US. For all we know, Vegas could be a year-round Burning Man.


Yeah, because when they meant "only one franchise remained" (the Taco Bell thing) they were referring to just San Angeles...

Mugato: WippitGuud: Mugato: Is there any positive future depicted in literature or film? Even in the preachy, optimistic future of Star Trek, there was a World War 3 in the 1990s.

Demolition Man.

Sex is against the law unless it's permitted by the state. So is salt and any other unhealthy food, non educational toys, swearing,  shiat, the future in Demolition Man is the worst dystopian future. Of course you could just move to Europe and do what you wanted. Wonder why Dennis Leary didn't just do that.


BEEP you have been fined one credit for violation of the verbal morality statutes.

FeedTheCollapse: skinink: FeedTheCollapse: is the list "10 Best Worst-case-scenario Post Apocalyptic Movies?" it's rather confusingly titled and compiled; especially since some fairly bad shiat is included. (I can only guess that "Equilibrium" is awesome if you didn't bother reading Fahrenheit 451 or Brave New World and really liked subpar Matrix knock-offs)

What does one have to do with the other? Someone can like 451 and Equilibrium at the same time. I hate when people make choices exclusive. "If you like this, then you can't possibly like this!" Each one has it's strengths and weaknesses.

It doesn't have to be an either/or thing, but to me, I found Equilibrium to be offensively unoriginal (which was made even worse by it not even being a good knock-off). Even if something like The Matrix was unoriginal in a broad sense, it felt like Equilibrium didn't even try to hide the fact that it was lifting plotlines and references from very well-known works.


A BIG "THIS."

Save for the "gunkata" (which I didn't recognize from anywhere else), there wasn't one single frame of originality in "Equilibrium." Every notion, every plot point, every concept, every shot was blatantly, shamefully ripped off from another source.

Having said that, I own the DVD (didn't pay for it) because it's a "so bad it's good" movie. Unintentionally hilarious (the puppy scene), and a lot of fun for throwing popcorn at the screen.

But make no mistake, that movie is garbage.

/cracks me up, the people who can't tell the difference between "best/worst scenarios" and "best/worst movies."

Subby and TFA have a weird definition of the word "apocalypse".

And that list makes me wonder how long it will be before we get a Kurt Wimmer movie starring Will Smith and Christian Bale.

I guess it depends on how you feel about being milked for your sperm 24/7.

Disagree. I prefer toilet paper.

I missed that app, but checked it out in Wikipedia, and found this nugget:

Microsoft Comic Chat installed a custom font, Microsoft Comic Sans, that users could use in other applications and documents.

Now we know who to blame.
