RE: what movie did you last watch?
The Giver (2014) is a really good depiction of what a STS society might look like. Everything is tightly regulated, there is no 'wastage', emotions are controlled via medication, and everyone has a carefully defined role that suits their personality and temperament. Some people, for eg, are more studious, and others are more physically active, and vocations are allocated at a coming of age ceremony.

It's a regularised society, with compartmentalisaton of understanding, with only a few people at the top with an inkling of the possibilities beyond that tightly defined STS society. Any discussion of alternatives is seen as aberrant, and the person needs to be re-aligned.

Our own planet is of mixed polarity, but you can easily recognise some of the STS traits in various government policies etc.

What happens when someone 'awakens' in the Giver? I guess you'll have to watch to find out. But STS is not a fixed choice. There are both 4d and 5d neggies that make the flip to positive, before the inevitable flip at mid 6d. Neggies are not defined by what they do others, but rather what they do to themselves; which is control and contain their emotions and feelings. Love is just too powerful a drug in their world, and is feared above all else.

I can see the appeal of a STS society. It is highly efficient in its own way, its citizens are all taken care of, everything is planned and nothing left to chance. But it is also stagnant in repeating an image of perfection and forcing everyone born into that society to subscribe to that static ideal of efficiency. It's very hard to wake up when you've been brainwashed from birth essentially.

more watching: The film Divergent also plays off the same themes essentially.

They're milking Star Wars for all it's worth. In my lifetime I can imagine them going to ep 12.

There is an anthro somewhere who needs me and I need them.

Equilibrium is similar. A 1984ish tale about a medicated society where emotion is illness & art is illegal.

47 Ronin (2013)

OH MY GOD WOW SUCH A GREAT MOVIE

& neat that i happened to watch it so close to dec 14th - the text at the end states that every dec 14th, thousands gather to the graves of the ronin to honor what they did. the movie is inspired by their story

The Skeleton Twins (2014).

Not the best feel-good movie, but shows how two adults struggle to navigate the catalyst in their lives. The two lead performances are utterly immersive.

Bolt on Blu-Ray, upscaled to 4k. I plan on getting the Bolt 3D blu-ray for our 3D tv. Though we're using the TV's speakers rather than my stereo system which is in parts.

It's a Samsung 55" curved 4k 3D tv. We got it on monthly payments, no interest. We have a Samsung blu-ray that upscales to 4k.

sweet. I'm undecided about my desktop pc. I have a 42" screen hooked up to it as a second monitor to watch videos on, but otherwise, I pretty much live off my chromebook these days.

Just ordered Bolt and Lion King in 3D. Looking forward to watching them. Will have a new sound bar coming in for better than TV sound.

Rainbow  RE: what movie did you last watch?
the pope's toilet. i don't recommend it. 1st based-on-truth movie that i haven't liked in a while. it's depressing

Reality can "write" a better tragedy than any writer could ever dream up - i think

Lucy is a good film. I managed to sit through it (usually a problem due to concentration).
Scarlett is pretty too.
I will always have a soft spot for Mr. Besson - he makes movies fun and does not seem to take himself too seriously.
If you enjoyed The Fifth Element or Inception then it may be for you.

A movie called Frequencies (OXV: The Manual). It's on Netflix..I enjoyed it. "In an alternate reality where "frequencies" determine one's level of success in life, low-end Zak falls for Marie, who's much farther up the scale."  Official Trailer
