The Movie Club Podcast #10: Soylent Green and The Insider

The long-awaited tenth episode of The Movie Club Podcast is finally here! For those who don’t know, this is a monthly podcast we have been putting together with some of our friends from the fantastic movie websites Row Three and Twitch. Every month we pick two movies to dissect and discuss, one of which is voted on by listeners like you. Featured this month: Soylent Green and The Insider.

I’m excited to tell you that our good friend Reed Farrington joins us for the first time on this episode, as Soylent Green is one of his favourite movies (although he’ll deny it if you ask him.). Head over to MovieClubPodcast.com to grab the episode, post your own thoughts in the comments and then vote on the possible choices for a future episode. (You can also e-mail us suggestions too.)

The selections for Episode 11 have also been set and they will be: Fred Dekker’s Night of the Creeps and the 80’s anti-sequel Gremlins 2: The New Batch. You’ve got one month starting now, so get watching!

    Now everyone is talking about the American economy and eclections, nice to read something different. Eugene

  • So, Eugene, what are your thoughts on over-population, pollution, food shortages, and media brainwashing?

    I was just reading a Soylent Green article written by Harry Harrison, the author of the novel on which the movie was very loosely based. He claims he was swindled like many authors used to claim, but the makers of the movie did listen to some of his suggestions. For example, he influenced the producer to add that montage at the beginning and the year title in order to establish that the movie takes place in the near future to give the movie’s environmental message a sense of urgency.

    BTW, along with the cannibalistic soylent green crackers, other ideas in the film that are not in the book include the “furniture” and the suicide parlour.

  • do we just e-mail our suggestions to filmjunk@gmail.com or is there a different address?

  • Yep, you can e-mail them to us or any of the other participants.
