In Venezuela, when a democratically-elected socialist starts ruining the fourth largest oil industry in the world, using socialism, effort is made to initiate a regime change.

It begins as a pro-communist propaganda piece on how socialism didn't do nothin' wrong and real communism has never been tried. It gets good later on, as there are legitimate concerns actually being shown.

Feel free to look at this and compare it to current (2017-2018) reactions to United States president Donald Trump, because it will make your head explode.

You can thank events featured around this time, and the fucktardedness that followed, for plunging 90% of the population into poverty.. and I'm not exaggerating. This is the wealth-generation of socialism.

After a disaster, a pleasure theme park re-opens with a new population of robots.

Although this one has held up well, it does show its age. It's still spectacularly well-made, and especially well-written.

Nothing could possibly go wrong in an amusement park populated by robots.

A good-ish movie, which must have been spectacular at the time because of its original themes and spectacular presentation. It holds up very well over the few centuries since its release.

Something about a boy in the 70s wandering around and a girl from earlier who also wandered around because reasons and things happen but they're not exciting so just give this a miss.

I don't know what the fuck these people were thinking, but this is beyond confusing and awful.

The Earth is ruined when aliens invade, and a maintenance skeleton crew monitors killer drones to protect resource-gathering efforts for survivors.

A fantastic movie from every angle. A very strong mood throughout. Highly recommended.

A standard broken-family Disney movie, but with magical thinking.

God damn this is a low-effort piece of shit.

A space-environmentalist works to cull the people who don't recycle, but polluters aim to stop him.

An adequate movie which for once has a sensible major plot arc.
