What are you watching?

I'm slowly going through some classic movies this weekend. One thing I didn't expect to learn is that Soylent Green, made in 1973, takes place in the year 2022.

I find it amusing that there is a protein drink called Solyent that's sold in stores now. I'm disappointed by the fact that each of the different flavors are color coded and not one of them is green.

We actually had Harry Harrison come speak with our college science fiction class back in the 70s. He wasn't impressed with what they did to his novel, and said he regretted giving out free advice during production.
 
So the Artemis Fowl movie has posted to Disney Plus. Being a huge fan of the books, I'm somewhat apprehensive to watch it. Has anyone else who has read the books, seen the movie yet? If so, what did you think?

Local cinema reopened this weekend and have been showing some classic movies. Today, I watched the Back to the Future movies and they still hold up after 30+ years.

One complaint is the train at the end of part 3. It does sort of come out of nowhere, but I understand why they included it. It would be too much of a downer ending to have Marty not be able to say goodbye to Doc.
