    Via Netflix, Primer, an indie movie about an "accidental" time machine being built and its unintended consequences for two of the engineers involved in its construction, due to such factors as causality and paradoxes. On the whole, I found it to be rather muddled and confusing; I'll take the H.G. Wells treatment of the same topic any day of the week.

    On Netflix, Soylent Green, with Charlton Heston, Joseph Cotten and Edward G. Robinson. Pretty damn depressing, especially since some of the problems foreseen back in 1973--such as global warming and the growing gulf between rich and poor--are already here.

    Made an impression on me when I saw it a few years back. Did you notice some parallels with BLADE RUNNER?

    Absolutely, Teddy. The overcrowding, scarcity of most goods that we as working or middle-class consumers would take for granted, and the overall dark tones in which both movies were filmed really hammer home what dystopias these societies have become, and--by extension--what we might yet become if we are not more careful with our wonderful planet. I think both Philip K. Dick and Harry Harrison {the author of the novel Make Room, Make Room, which became the film Soylent Green} had very similar fears and visions of this type of nightmarish future for humanity.
    Great connection, Teddy, and thank you for coming up with it, as I had never linked the two prior to your observations about both movies. You actually got me thinking about something besides my current medical condition and upcoming biopsy procedure on August 6th.

    On Netflix, Silent Running, with Bruce Dern, Ron Rifkin, Cliff Potts and--last but not least--Huey and Dewie, my personal favorites.

    Yeah, Teddy, the funny thing is, I had quite forgotten how much I really like Bruce Dern's acting ability; he's low-key, yet at the same time focussed and intense. He's one of those guys who fly right under the radar until you see him. Next up will be the Laughing Policeman-- with another of my all-time faves-- Walter Matthau.

    On Netflix, Tron: Legacy, with Jeff Bridges, Olivia Wilde and Bruce Boxleitner, Overall, a pretty good sequel to the first Tron movie. It had--at least for me--some logical flaws, but great special effects and Olivia Wilde is quite easy on the eyes!

    Rained this afternoon so watched Adams Family Values. Bit like a home movie, but more amusing

    On Netflix: Stranded, about a group of astronauts who crash land on Mars; I would have been better off leaving this one "stranded" back at the Netflix warehouse.
