A “Close Reading” of Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey” | West Coast Odysseus Preamble* A few weeks ago and for the first time I watched Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 movie 2001: A Space Odyssey in segments on Youtube. It made such a powerful impression on me that I immediately bought the DVD. I also found the Wikipedia webpage on the movie; I skipped the plot summary, but wanted to read about the reception of the movie, and was pleased to see that it was considered the best movie of all time by one critical journal, and usually places in the “top ten” lists of others. I have not yet watched the special features on my disk, nor have I done any research at all on the movie apart from what I mentioned above. The reason I mention this is because it is possible that my review of this somewhat difficult movie may be tainted by incorrect interpretation, though I’m fairly confident about what follows. The beginning of 2001: A Space Odyssey is a lengthy one, with scary organ music playing for about three minutes; the entire screen is dark during this time. The Dawn of Man Dr.

Pay it forward Pay it forward is an expression for describing the beneficiary of a good deed repaying it to others instead of to the original benefactor. The concept is old, but the phrase may have been coined by Lily Hardy Hammond in her 1916 book In the Garden of Delight. "Pay it forward" is implemented in contract law of loans in the concept of third party beneficiaries. Specifically, the creditor offers the debtor the option of paying the debt forward by lending it to a third person instead of paying it back to the original creditor. History Pay it forward was used as a key plot element in the denouement of a New Comedy play by Menander, Dyskolos (a title which can be translated as "The Grouch"). The concept was rediscovered and described by Benjamin Franklin, in a letter to Benjamin Webb dated April 25, 1784: I do not pretend to give such a deed; I only lend it to you. In 1916, Lily Hardy Hammond wrote, "You don't pay love back; you pay it forward Robert Heinlein's contribution
Starship Troopers (film) Starship Troopers is a 1997 American military science fiction action film directed by Paul Verhoeven and written by Edward Neumeier, originally from an unrelated script called Bug Hunt at Outpost Nine, but eventually licensing the name Starship Troopers, from a science fiction novel by Robert A. Heinlein. It is the only theatrically released film in the Starship Troopers franchise. The film had a budget estimated around $105 million and grossed over $121 million worldwide. Starship Troopers was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects at the 70th Academy Awards in 1998. In 2012, Slant Magazine ranked the film #20 on its list of the 100 Best Films of the 1990s. At Mobile Infantry training, brutal Career Sergeant Zim leads the recruits.

Starship Troopers polarized audiences and critics alike.

The All-TIME 100 Movies feature—compiled by Richard Schickel and me, and handsomely packaged by Josh Macht, Mark Coatney and all the smart folks at TIME.com—attracted a record-busting 7.8 million page views in its first week, including 3.5 million on May 23rd, its opening daym, in time for Father’s Day. The idea was to assemble 100 estimable films since TIME began, with the March 3, 1923 issue. Not so simple, in fact, for we faced a couple of complications. Why do the list?

Top 50 Dystopian Movies of All Time Massive dehumanization, totalitarian government, rampant disease, post-apocalyptic terrains, cyber-genetic technologies, societal chaos and widespread urban violence are some of the common themes in dystopian films which bravely examine the ominous shadow cast by future. A dystopia is a fictional society that is the antithesis or complete opposite of a utopia, an ideal world with a perfect social, political and technological infrastructure. A world without chaos, strife or hunger. A world where the individual potential and freedom is celebrated and brought to the forefront. In contrast, the dystopian world is undesirable with poverty and unequal domination by specific individuals over others. Dystopian films often construct a fictional universe and set it in a background which features scenarios such as dehumanizing technological advancements, man-made disasters or class-based revolutions.
