Finally something to post that didn't fit in the other two blogs.

I was invited out to see a play, and it is a comedy about a dystopian future. I then realised how much I like dystopian future stories and decided to lookup a few
I realised not only have I seen a vast majority of these films, I have liked every single one I have seen... I even liked Waterworld...I am sorry that I was the only one Mr Costner.
I don't know why I like these films. Is it the sci-fi element, is it the world in ruin, is it that I want to see how not to fix things?

I don't know, it is very odd. I like the idea of a utopia as much as the next person, I will talk at length about utopian ideals like freedom of information and expression, that I believe everyone is intelligent in some way and that Gene Roddenberry and his utopian picture is glorious :)
So why do I watch anything dystopian that comes my way, as one of my mates used to say "team of therapists, round the clock, Morgan". Hmm, maybe I am just being subconsciously contrary?
Oh well now to collect then watch all the movies on that list I haven't seen, does anyone know where you can get "The World, the Flesh and the Devil" on DVD?

Peace out all.

Hello. The film is on amazon.com, but perhaps it's only available as region 1 NTSC. It also appears to be available for streaming. The film is also listed at worldcat.org, and maybe it would be at a library near you - or you could ask that they get it in. Maybe there's a region 4 dvd out there, but you'd have to search more or maybe call the libraries listed on worldcat.org which have it and ask where they got the dvd from.

Yeah I know it is on amazon, it was more a point on the age of this film and how many I have actually seen :)
