I am Jack's utter disappointment that you did not mention the movie's kickass score. Basil Poledouris did the score. He also did the score for RoboCop and Conan the Barbarian.

For Critical stinker: Did you notice that Robert Downey Jr's Doctor Dolittle is a flop and he's nominated for a razzie award? We don't talk about it, Critical Drinker likes better to denigrate women.

Well reviewed, I think you nailed it in saying that this basically IS a propaganda film from that fictional universe. I've seen some, I think misguided defenses for the Feds in this movie. While there is an argument to be made that this was an unfaithful corruption of Heinlein's original novel, the film itself is clearly portraying a dystopian, authoritarian regime in parody form.

When I first heard that movies/ games are starting to preach about race, sexuality, and gender I was confused. I mean I thought these things were already solved for decades in the USA and European countries. Maybe it’s a problem in third world countries or less developed countries, but I don’t care really I just want to play games and watch movies in peace, not care things that won’t affect me. I am also an Asian Male and have had no one look down on me since I was born because of my race.

I consider it a scifi horror masterpiece. "Annihilation was one of those movies that conned people into thinking it was smart." I never got the feeling of it ever trying to convey that it was smart. The main theme of this movie was visual aesthetic and the also gore horror. Also the prism analogy of matter dissolving was just beautiful to me like how light can slowly disperse in a prism so can we since matter is a wave as well with similar properties to light. Search up 'de brogile' matter wave. Also I cringe when people expect movies to be realistic like how they aren't wearing any protective suit etc. what part of science FICTION do you not get.

I saw this when it came out and we thought it was a hoot. We were really surprised to find that some people did not recognize it as satire. The male and female lead are clearly extremely good looking, like the people in propaganda films (or advertisements) and the news stories are very obviously spoofs of real-world patriotic news, such as the news surrounding the First Gulf War and the Balkans. (Not entirely a coincidence that Wag the Dog was a movie from the same year.) Plus it is Paul Verhoeven, and if you've seen Robocop or Total Recall you know they guy likes to make mindless action films that are not at all mindless if you are paying attention.

The hilarious part is that the Heinlein book is most certainly not satire and is actually an incredibly effective, powerful and convincing indictment of Democracy. Of course the film is completely uncharitable towards the books themes of autocratic fascism and the undeniable failures of democracy. If you haven't read it I would strongly recommend it even if you just read the cliffsnotes for the classroom scenes and the conversations with Rico's commander. Funfact in the book Rico is actually Phillipino and in fact the entire military is highly multiethnic though it is almost exclusively Caucasoid and Asiatic. They also explain the reasoning for the prolific corporal punishment in a space travel Era civilization. Long story short we will never make it to space with a civilization as soft as what we are seeing in this fucked up, late stage democracy where violent groups are allowed to run rampant and society is constantly drained trying to come up with softer and softer ways to "discipline" them. Basically just read the book. Really gets the old noggin joggin.

Fun shit like RoboCop, Total Recall, and Starship Troopers is definitely where Paul belongs, I watched Elle and it was kind of a slog. You could tell there were plot points and bits of acting where he wanted to go with his usual all-out approach but at the same time direct something "serious"? I dunno it felt weird.

It was overrated bcuz they're black. People loved it bcuz they're black. It had errything to do with their skincolor and nothing else. They see skin color and gender above all else. And while they do that, anybody who disliked the movie was automatically called a racist. You are not allowed to criticize them bcuz of their skin color. You have to love them or else.. Talk about sup---acy (I can't say the word or my comment gets removed) The Woke creatures have a tendency of accusing other people of the things the Woke do/are. So when you don't *Burn Loot or Murder* in the name of segregation or Marxism, or disagree/disapprove of those actions and ideologies, you're automatically labeled, defamed, or censored/banned. Automatically wrong. And they are allowed to get away with it all. I miss the days of not even knowing what racism was. I watched movies growing up, and seeing an asian or a black didn't even cross my mind. I just saw people doing things. Now I'm the most hated human breed in America simply bcuz of my skin color. They hate me bcuz of my gender, skincolor, and beliefs. They call me supr---cist and racist and other horrible things. Just bcuz of my skin color. Those are the creatures in power. Control over our entertainment. They direct movies. They are why we need Natural Selection back The movie isn't bad. I liked it. It's just overrated and used to push agendas and call erryone white a racist. I was looking forward to a sequel but Chadwick Boseman died of Cancer. Shame Rest in RIP

The only difference between a civilian and a citizen of the Federation is a civilian can't vote or hold public office until they've completed some kind of Federal service, not necessarily military although that's probably the most obvious method. Other than them everyone has the same rights. Neither of Rico's parents are citizens, yet they're very rich and live in a big house.

I can only think that something nefarious is in the works when these new "writers" use an old property and change existing characters, instead of using their creations in their own new stories and milieus. As goofy as Rey and Kylo are, they could be used as characters in many other genres or worlds.

Didn't they actually turn a famous character of the world black in the serial? ...just becuase. Imagine they turn Black Panther white, letting him be played by Vin Diesel. Some would probably like it cuz Vin Diesel is badass, but the Social-Justice-Baboons and all the Simps in the world would probably call for war.

There are plenty of bad movies that I can't sit through. The Chronicles of Riddick isn't one of them. While I don't think anyone disputes it's flaws, that doesn't mean it lacks entertainment value. I can't tell you where the line is, but it's there. Sometimes movies can be bad, but fun to watch.

How to write dr who: Doctor going somewhere Troubles happen Doctor is in trouble and seems to be out of solution, ppl's life is at stake All hopes seems lost Doctor figure out the solution/knew it all along Doctor starts to take control of the situation Doctor is now with his/her commanding presence, banish the villain/got the hero moment (either with speech, intimidation, charisma, hard choice, sacrifice) Doctor is Victorious (at some point with great cost, including his/her life) Why cant they got this right?

Over all franchises have been failures and TV shows can't be trusted... Star Trek, 5 years?! I suggest, if anyone is looking for more of the same, then try rip-offs and wannabe's...look to the old school B films...look to the Gr80s (60s, 70s + d2v 90s as well)! Sure, "Battle beyond the stars" is no "Empire strikes back" but it feels more STAR WARS canon than today's Disney slop! csshows.info/up/video/ktSvyYm_iHqmu20.html

I was so excited for "Prometheus" then the scientist absolutely fell in love with an aggressive alien snake. Then one of the dudes came back to the ship all zombie looking killing people and for 45 seconds others were trying to "calm him down". So, I went and saw "Alien: Convenant" thinking the filmmakers saw their mistakes and course corrected. But then Bill Crudup didn't shoot the alien egg thing, he was staring at it for 30 seconds, and didn't shoot it. I yelled "SHOOT IT!" In the theatre and I got applause. Then, the Ripley replacement saves the day, fine, but she's crying the whole time. Sorry Angie but you're never going to get an Oscar for this.

After years of slandering and humiliating fans with this whole "gatekeeping" nonsense or with false accusations of racism and prejudice, I can safely say, out of everyone I knew who loved SW and were hardcore fans fighting to be the first to see a new movie or buy a new toy, there are exactly ZERO who still care, zero who ar willing to show it to their kids, and every single one is done with it SW. GL to Disney and Darth KK(k) making passionate fans out of all the twatter hate mob, they were never in the lines to purchase mechandise, or the ones to care about lore.
