Movies you've seen lately

Agree with Ren. The last dystopian flick I saw that really did it for me was Michael Radford's 1984.

When pickins is lean, ya takes what ya gets.

(Note: FWIW I thought Hunger Games was pretty lame and vastly over-hyped. Nothing new there either. The theme of a government sponsored death match has already been done several times too many in scifi. Haven't seen The Giver. But I read the book and thought it was a little too contrived and obvious about where it was going. Veteran scifi fans can figure the reveal out pretty quickly.)

I'm starting to find these movies rather tedious being, seemingly, rather teen oriented.

Divergent
The Maze Runner (first of what seems to be a series)
The Hunger Games
The Giver (which reminded me of a toned down PG13 version of the far better Equilibrium)
etc

I don't get it.  They *are* teen movies, aren't they?  Based on teen books?  No more adult oriented than If I Stay, or Fault of Our Stars, right?

BTW - Am I the only one here who wasn't impressed by Equilibrium?

Maybe not the only one.  But I'm not in that camp.  I loved it.

The plot holes were gaping.  But I enjoyed Christian Bale's intensity.  It was similar to Fahrenheit 451.  F451 was a flick of much higher quality though.  This was kind of like a high tech F451 the way the movie AI was a high tech Pinocchio.
