MadballChibcha Indeed, an amazing movie. It has some really memorable scenes in it, most of them already mentioned. Glad you placed this classic here!!

SunnyD That's right, I remember the food scene now. Where Thorn doesn't even know how to use proper eating utensils because the entire world has gone for soooo long without actual food. It really gave some weight to the movie.

rizzo Edward G. Robinsonís death scene and Heston chewing scenery are the two things that separate this flick from your standard B movie sci fi flicks.

alittlebirdytoldmeso The scene that always stuck out for me was the when Thorn brings back the real food to Sol. I think it really showcases how much the focus was on acting back in the day as opposed to cued music and camera tricks. Heston has been ridiculed many times for overacting, but I really see it more as passion - especially in this movie.

Purple Man I loved this product's appearance on Futurama - "now with 30% more girls!"

Terrible-D I was lucky enough to see this film late one friday night, when I was in elementary school. I didn't quite grasp all the concepts, but the end did leave an impression on me. Plus, I was one of very few people I knew that *got* the afforementioned Phil Hartman, SNL skit.

Nick The Soylent Green trailer does a great job of giving away the ending.

BakaGaijin Heston's over the top acting is what draws me to his films (such as with Shatner). I knew the ending to this way before I saw it, thanks to Phil Hartman's wonderful rendition on SNL.

SunnyD It took me awhile to track down a DVD copy of this fantastic film, but when I did but damn it was worth it. The best part, as Col. Flagg has said, was the euthanasia seen when you're shown what the world used to actually be like, with flowers, wildlife, large green fields of forests and waterfalls, and it's such a stark contrast to what the world in the film, or hell the world today, is like. Especially considering that the director had the cameramen shoot all of the scenes in the film in dark or drab colors and the short film at the end is such a huge shock of various bright and cheery colors.

Colonel Flagg One of my all-time favorite Heston movies, I really enjoyed the interplay between him and EGR, who also portrayed Heston's foil in the Ten Commandments. Without going into too much detail, the moment for me comes during Sol's euthanasia, where Thorn is brought to tears saying "I never knew it was this beautiful." Powerful imagery.

Those on this site too young to remember this movie owe it to themselves to find it and watch it.
