Soylent Green DVD
Theatrical Release Date:   04/19/1973
This is the year 2022. Overcrowding, pollution, and resource depletion have reduced society's leaders to finding food for the teeming masses. The answer is Soylent Green - an artificial nourishment whose actual ingredients are not known by the public. Thorn is the tough homicide detective who stumbles onto the secret so terrifying no one would dare believe him.

Spoiler alert....








 

At least in the movie people were eating something that had a nutritional value. In the real world we are faced with high frutose corn syrup, trans fat, e coli in meats, etc. They are killing us in plain sight.

This would make a great remake about the year 2013. Replace "soylent green" with "ground beef" & "people" with "horse meat" and I think you've got a box office winner.


I watched this on Prime a few nights ago....It hasn't aged well. When this movie came out, the ending was considered a mind-blowing shock that had viewers talking for weeks....now it is almost funny.

The acting is horrible and the writing is commical.

Don't forget to snack on this while watching the movie....

Yum

I'm sure it'll be available at Aldi, and if there's a good enough deal on it I'm stocking the freezer.

Ha. I took my wife to be to see this movie 40 years ago on our first date. Must have made an impression because we are still married.

I can't agree with you.

It's typical of the budget and effects constrained sci-fi films of the era, particularly the ones with Heston in the lead.  Heston has a slightly over-dramatic style, not uncommon for live stage theater actors of his generation.  That works in movies that are epic (Ben Hur comes to mind), but doesn't work quite as well in roles of smaller stature (a grimey beat cop in an overcrowded future world).  Edward G. Robinson was terrific in his supporting role (his last performance).  Script was ok. 

The movie works as a sorta-campy classic.  Certainly worth four bucks for anyone to add to a decent Sci Fi collection on DVD.



 

directed by richard fleischer, one of the best in history.

  Your film review ability is on par with your spelling.  This is classic, doomsday, future of the past 70's sci-fi.

We are fed like pigs at the trough, with food engineered with flavoring compounds derived from aborted fetus' kidneys so that we will savor the comforting flavors that with we are corrupted.

"With your head down in the pig bin,
Saying "Keep on digging."
Pig stain on your fat chin.
What do you hope to find.
When you're down in the pig mine."

from Pink Floyd - Animals - Pigs

boo on you ! You must be people
