M.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. Ranking the List 50. In the nation of Libria, there is always peace among men. 49. 48. 47. 46. 45.

What Humans Are Really Doing to Our Planet, in 19 Jaw-Dropping Images Last week, Pope Francis and church officials encouraged everyone to consume less and think more about our impact on the environment. It's a timely warning because the next six months will be critical to our future. Ahead of a series of major events later this year, The Foundation for Deep Ecology and the Population Media Center released a collection that illustrates the devastating effects of out-of-control growth and waste, and it's breathtaking. "This is an issue that people care about, and oftentimes it's just not discussed by mainstream media," Missie Thurston, director of marketing and communications at the Population Media Center, told Mic. It's difficult to always know the impacts of our daily choices, like the real effect of buying a bottled water or an extra TV or laptop. Electronic waste, from around the world, is shipped to Accra, Ghana, where locals break apart the electronics for minerals or burn them.

Eye for Film : Hotel Splendide Movie Review (2000) "British" and "film" are not always the greatest combination of words on the planet. In fact lately the rash of films trying to emulate the Englishness of Four Weddings And A Funeral, the gruesomeness of Shallow Grave or the plucky northerner spirit of the hugely successful The Full Monty (see There's Only One Jimmy Grimble or Billy Elliot for more examples) seem to have seriously put back the British film industry. In this state of mind I toddled along to Hotel Splendide, concerned it would fall somewhere between Fawlty Towers and Guesthouse Paradiso or, God forbid, worse.

Supercut: Cinema's Greatest Mirror Pep Talks Early this morning, I was awoken by three consecutive wall thumps coming from my crawl space, which, as you all know, is the signal from our video editor, Oliver Noble, that he’s completed a new supercut. After I let him out, we watched it, and it was pretty good, so I rewarded him with a few minutes with his gimp mask unzipped and gave him some bactine for his welts. This is actually our second crowd-sourced supercut, where Oliver provided the topic and you the FilmDrunk reader gave scene suggestions. The result is Cinema’s Greatest Mirror Pep Talk.

What Went Wrong With 'True Detective' Season 2? Ben Caspere, the murdered man at the heart of True Detective's second season, got his eyes burned out with acid. To many viewers who stayed with the series to the end, he got off easy. With its eighth and final episode in the ground (along with three quarters of its core cast), TD 2.0 has emerged as the year's most passionately disliked show. Some of that reaction can surely be dismissed as bandwagoneering – everybody enjoys a good dogpile now and then ­– but much of it was earned the hard way.
