CHARLTON HESTON WAS AHEAD OF HIS TIME IN SOYLENT GREEN
We cannot let the death of our namesake, Charlton Heston, slip by without a mention, because he made one of our all time FAVORITE movies. Politics aside, we have to love Charlton for his classic science fiction movie “Soylent Green.” It gave us a big scare because it depicted life in the future as hideously overpopulated, disastrously polluted, and fresh food was just a memory. Death seemed like a pleasant option. Seeing everyone standing in line for water rations, sweating profusely day and night in the yellow atmosphere, made us worry about the environment before it became fashionable. If you missed this film, rent it right away. Presumably, Al Gore already has.
