So we are fucking up the earth pretty good and that means, not activism or government and corporate responsibility, but more Hollywood movies about post-fucked up earth. With global warming and unhinged weather, it's probably easier to ignore it by going to the movies.
Tom Cruise kicked things off this summer with Oblivion which looked gorgeous with sexy spaceships and a crumbling New York City. Doesn't look like a good marijuana movie, but then again, none of Cruises' films make the stoner grade.
Coming out this Friday is the Will Smith & Son sci-fi called After Earth. From what I can figure out from the trailer, they end up crashed landed on a fucked up earth a thousand years after us humans have escaped for better digs. And whatever has been left behind to evolve is dangerous. There is the movie, but watch out for the twisty ending as this is an M. Night Shyamalan movie. I would skip seeing these two films and go right to A Boy and His Dog. A telekinetic dog and his human friend, a youngDon Johnson, scampering around the wasteland just trying to survive. Get a little stoned and maybe rent Road Warrior for a good double feature. So be a little rugged, roll a joint and enjoy.
Thanks toSeth Combs for reminded me that Don Johnson can be cool even if it ain't the 80s in Miami.
