futuristic movies suck

escape from new york:

The year is 1998. Due to huge crime rates, the United States turns its once great city of New York into a maximum security prison where hardcore criminals are put for life. All the bridges leading into the city are mined, a large wall is built along the shoreline and a large police force army is based there to stop or kill any attempted escapees. En route to a conference, the President, on board Air Force One, is forced to eject in a pod when a female terrorist takes over the controls and crashes the plane into a building. A new prisoner, ex-soldier Snake Plissken is offered his freedom if he goes in, frees the President and finds a tape with important information for the conference. Snake agrees but to ensure his co-operation he is injected with a small but powerful explosive that will only be destroyed if his mission is successful. Snake must set out into the decaying city, filled with immoral criminals, and he must succeed - for his own life


the omega man

It is the year 1977, two years since biological warfare between the People's Republic of China and the Soviet Union wiped out the entire world population. This is revealed through flashback newsreel footage. Also in flashback, we learn that Neville, at the time a military scientist, had in the midst of the military and social upheaval which resulted from the spread of the deadly disease, injected himself with an experimental vaccine. The vaccine, for reasons that were not explained, had rendered Neville immune to the plague. In Los Angeles, several hundred somewhat resistant albinos calling themselves "The Family" have survived the plague. (The storyline does not fully explain how the Family has been affected by the plague, but the impression given is that the members are suffering from, among other things, what appear to be symptoms similar to extreme radiation poisoning. In Matheson's book, the Family members are actually vampires). The disease has turned them into violent, light-sensitive albino mutants, the plague having affected their minds with such symptoms as psychosis and "delusions of grandeur". Although resistant to the plague, these wretched creatures are slowly dying off, apparently due to the plague mutating.

soylent green


Set in the year 2022, Soylent Green depicts a dystopia, a Malthusian catastrophe that occurs because humanity has failed to pursue sustainable development and has not halted uncontrolled population growth. The film portrays New York City's population as 40,000,000, with more than half of it unemployed. Air and water pollution have produced a year-round heatwave and a thin, yellow, daytime smog. Food and fuel are scarce resources because of animal and plant decimation and soil poisoning, housing is dilapidated and overcrowded, and widespread government-sponsored euthanasia is encouraged to control and reduce overpopulation

And I wouldn't have to work tomorrow. That'd be kick ass.

I would not be down with eating people, though. Soylent Green is gross.
