    I would if I could. I think just like The Matrix, this was one of those films where they wrote in a lot of stuff that could later be discussed in college papers. Interested to see if The Out-of-Towners did the same thing. it is an interesting thought experiment though about writing reviews for movies. what else is there to review that goes to such great lengths with opinions?? the pen is an interesting tool!!

    for those of us millenials, 1985-1989 born, our teens were the millennium and we are halfway to 2049. wondering what is going to happen around the world up until then

    I surfed all the way through 10 Things I Hate About You (1999) completely for the first time, keeping in mind now that 10 Things was counterprogrammed against The Matrix's first OW, and boy I was not disappointed. I wish I had grown familiar with this one when I was beginning as a teenager. I took bong hits probably 5 times through the movie and realized 10 Things was an excellent movie to open against The Matrix. I must have had a Shakespeare/Love-like resentment before for 10 Things because it was stealing attention away from Matrix and I just downplayed the rom-com as a bland excuse to steer away from Sci-Fi revolutions. Anyways, The-Out-of-Towners opened as counterprogramming against 10 Things and The Matrix too, so I will be interested to see if this one dives as deep as the other 2 did.

    what would it be like to have to boss people around all your life? are you supposed to raise children to learn how to boss people around too? is this the way children are supposed to grow? what is the transition like from childhood to adulthood and what kind of thinking does one adopt in this transition? I think if a child 'resists' the bossing, then it is basically RIP from school, society, and curiosity. it seems like this is the way units of people are supposed to go.

    if you have a pet under supervision make sure to bang on the house/cage with your flashlight every time the animal is going to do something to remind it that it is being watched and it is not free because of you

    Wild Wild West (1999)

    Wow, what a mix this was. Wild Wild West reinvents the 1960s tv show. The setting is 1869 Post-Civil War, the United States is still at war with each other 4 years after the Civil War. President Ulysses Grant succeeds Andrew Johnson's 1865 post-Lincoln term. Further out in the West, Dr. Arliss Loveless and General McGrath meet up with the Eastern powers to fund and construct steam powered robotic tanks that can walk through any city right up to the White House. Their mission is to liberate the United States by dividing it amongst other countries including their alliances. The main character James West from the Union Army has been restructured from a white man to a black man. His origins assumed he was raised free of racial discrimination and now he navigates in a Post-Civil War landscape still at war, on assignment, and with super fast reflexes. He has yet to be introduced with the other main character U.S. Marshall and technological wizard Artemis Gordon. Situational comedy involving sexual innuendos and disposable characters with disposable violence bring them together. They end up on assignment to stop General McGrath's efforts to continue the war and discover he is operating under Dr. Loveless who is untouchable to everyone beneath him which suggests he has been disguised as the peoples God, their conscience, and orchestrator of their future. While investigating, Artemis Gordon rescues a caged Rita Escobar who is part of the kidnapped scientists under Loveless and McGrath and plays as an object for them throughout the movie. The scenes look very expensive, with the comedy and violence looking to 'dig in' and reflect those times during U.S. history. The women that made peace with war and themselves serve as Loveless's henchmen and seem to be ripped from Sucker Punch. The entire movie wastes its time with gags, executions, and introductions, leaving not much for the plot or the action to breathe. This is a movie you have to watch 2-3 times in a row and take note of to capture all of the flavors. 75/100

    parents are the victims and children are the terrorizers to be drilled into old people are cruel and want to see control and obedience as a test of maturity any fights that break out means the kids are on their way to rehabilitation camps while the old people try to stay happy and continue their psychotic right way of life is there anyone that sides with me on this? or should the kids go to prison camps until they are shaped to be more like them?

    if internet can assist with molding behavior within cultures, I don't think humans will ultimately go that pure w/ watered down living. we are addicted to too many things outside of ourselves. I think art would be harder to achieve under their guidelines, but I don't know what the New Puritans are
