Man, it’s depressing to think about but, for every year that has passed since I first saw this as a Movie of the Week back in the 1970’s, Soylent Green (1973) seems less and less like speculative science fiction and more like a self-fulfilling prophecy. The North Pole is a lake, GMO’s are propagating, and the decimation of the pollinating bee is the first link in a possible catastrophic collapse of the food chain. We’ve already achieved Idiocracy status, people. Next stop, Cheese and Crackers — only their ain’t gonna be any cheese. Still worth a look whether you know the ultimate twist or not due to the fantastic supporting efforts of Edward G. Robinson; from his crotchety cussing to his magnificent, Kevorkian send-off. Watch and be prepared to be really, really depressed after.

Soylent Green (1973) Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) / P: Walter Seltzer. Russell Thacher / D: Richard Fleischer / W: Stanley R. Greenberg, Harry Harrison (novel) / C: Richard H. Kline / E: Samuel E.

The opening shot of Shane Black’s The Nice Guys (2016) reminded me that the Hollywood sign was in such disrepair it was torn down and replaced in 1978.
