just re-screened cult classic soylent green. despite its cheesy surface, i think the plot actually works – especially in light of other post-apocalypse films. charlton’s semi-corrupt cop act (quickly cashing in on a freshly dead guy’s stocked refrigerator and stacked girlfriend – all while on the beat) is pretty good, and seeing him go ga-ga over being able to take a hot shower and crank the a/c up in the stiff’s apartment gets the forseen greenhouse effect point across. speaking of 70s future shock, remember those goofy ecology flags you’d always get in a box of honeycombs or alphabits? lastly, gotta love those stylish chairman mao leisure suits the playuhs sport in SG.
