Just what exactly IS soylent green anyways? I've heard it mentioned in the simpsons, or futurama or something, but i dont know what it is...
Soylent Green is people!
Soylent Green is .... soy beans!!!
Good with french fries
"You've got to tell everybody!" What a film. It's been a few years since I last saw it ...
(peripheral spoiler reference):
... and changed my diet. Ocean plankton indeed ... I know better!
I've just had the thought, that its the logical successor to the pod people in the original INVASION of the BODY SNATCHERS.
Anyway, its almost the last film on my sci-fi want list, having got FAHRENHEIT 451 recently ...
This film practically epitomizes '70s cult sci-fi', in my book!
And we get The Omega Man on the same day! Gah-hmmm!
Soylent Green is a good Hollywood Sci-fi B-movie, but a very bad adaptation of Harry Harrison's "Make Room! Make Room!"
I found this extraordinarily moving as a child - here's hoping it still stands up.
once you know the 'shock' ending, does the film still have any appeal?
i like Chuck Heston, and i like 70's era movies, but i'm hesitating on it since i already know the ending.
does it offer anything else of interest?
I knew the ending when I first saw it all those years ago, and was still engrossed and moved to tears. It's a great, sorely underappreciated film.
What continues to draw me to the film is its superb use of music, especially Grieg's 'Sunrise' from Pier Gynt seguing into Beethoven's first movement from his 'Pastoral' suite. It's a brilliant segue - I have actually copped this great segue myself for a MiniDisc collage of great Classical music.
The use of Panavision is quite good and the film is lively and thought-provoking.
Eddie Robinson's last performance is superb.
I'll be pre-ordering this, for sure.
just read an interview with Richard Fleisher and learned that he was the director for this one, Dr Doolittle and 20000 Leagues.
Fantastic read as well
Does anyone remember that SNL skit from the early 90s with Phil Hartman as Charlton Heston where there were a bunch of Soylent products? Pretty funny stuff. I think John Goodman was the host of that episode.
...my favorite breakfast cereal?
available for a limited time only! Not available in all states nor anyone under the age of 18 years
In the book, Soylent green is soy and lentils. Thus the name.
I remember, though I don't think we should admit we watch SNL in public...
Does anyone remember the parody that South Park did which had a Turkey farm slaughter it's birds using the same pastoral lightshow "calming" technique?
