    very relatable film.

    also the guy who plays alex i've seen him in a TON of stuff but never really noticed he was the guy because how old he got.

    Ok....
    ^^ White House Official Response: "He did not hear the statements made on the video."

    Even if in some fantasyland that is true, that makes you unbelievably sloppy, and you are NOT fit to be President of the United States.

    BLM is not about black lives, and antifa is not about facism.
    I think the disconnect here is simply a product about what you see, the messaging; what kind of websites and news channels are you looking at daily? How diverse is the community you live in? Lots of people are dying all over this country, you're being told about certain events certain ways. Let's also not confuse who is rioting and who is protesting. Blatant racial injustice murders led to anger and unrest that has manifested all sorts of ways.

    You know not too far from me we've had two black men hanged from trees in the last month. Seriously. https://abcnews.go.com/US/lawyer-rob...ry?id=71526074

    So, you aren't talking about that. You probably aren't hearing about it either. And you aren't talking about Ahmed Arboury going jogging in his neighborhood and having three racists chase him down in a pickup and execute him in Georgia. And you aren't talking about the three officers in Wilmington recorded openly talking about "slaughtering n-----s". You can take your pick of the multitude of things we aren't talking about here when we're on this topic. It still boggles my mind that the Trump Thread quickly turns on a dime into an anti-BLM and a "systemic racism doesn't exist in the US" thread by some here. What a tragic defensive wonderland to be in. Sort of reminds me of Trump himself: quickly change the subject and/or deny reality when it's looking grim.

    What a weird movie. I watched it as a kid on TV - they must have edited out all of the orgy scenes, because I definitely don't remember anything about that. lol. But yeah that movie was definitely memorable and still pretty watchable today. I think it was filmed in Austin Texas?
    Yeah. Wireless keyboard at home misses letters often.

    Been many years since I've seen Logan's Run, but have watched Clockwork again a couple years ago. It's amazing watching some of these back, and thinking how awesome the "effects" were - at least it's less cheesy than CGI in it's infancy.

    Yeah, what a shame, so young. The other boy, 14 in critical condition..

    What were those young kids even doing out in CHOP at 3am?

    I guess these people are realizing what self policing looks like.

    I highly doubt there will be anything left of chop, besides the graffiti by the time I make it up there Wednesday night.

    The memory of CHOP's short life will not be a good one.

    and yeah, of course BLM is silent about all of this, because only black lives taken by white people matter to them.

    Maybe it's because I saw them when they debuted, but Robocop is rather silly - Lawnmower Man was better, but if you want good Dystopian classics, check out "1984", "Clockwork Orange" or "Loan's Run".

    Thanks for the suggestion, reading the synopsis it sounds like that author fifty years ago predicted Presidential leadership now. I normally love dystopian future books or movies, but the last months make it hit almost too close to home. I think the best protest sign I've seen in recent times was something like "Please wake me up from this episode of Black Mirror." And, yeah you laugh... but then you realize it's no joke.

    I see today's dire events and propaganda response and sometimes it makes me think of "1984" ie. "war is peace" / "ignorance is strength" etc. and I also think of "They Live" with the "consume" / "conform" / "obey" subtext all around us. It's terrible and unfortunate, but it makes perfect sense we have a person like Trump at the helm of the United States in times like these: a reality show con-man with no plan except to enrich & glorify himself.
