marcogennuso#BOTW#WE In the One State of the great Benefactor, there are no individuals. People are referred to as numbers, not names. Human passions and instincts have been subdued. Everything has been reduced to mathematics. Even nature has been defeated, banished behind the Green Wall. But one frontier remains: outer space. Number D-503, architect of the spaceship Integral, decides to record his thoughts in the final days before the launch into space. But a chance meeting with the beautiful 1-330 results in an unexpected discovery that threatens everything he believes about himself and the One State. The discovery - or rediscovery - of inner space…..the human soul.2d
The tragic story of the complex love/hate relationship between two farm laborers, George Milton and Lennie Small, who share big dreams but couldn't be any more opposite from each other.4d
afilmbymanuelhsanchez John did such a good job as Lennie. I remember when I first read this book in the 9th grade.
marcogennuso"We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita; Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty, and to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, ‘Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.’ I suppose we all thought that, one way or another." - J. Robert Oppenheimer, after the devastating realization that the atomic bomb he created could very well destroy the world.1w
Darrow is a Red, the lowest color group within the Society. He's also a Helldiver, one of a thousand men and women who live and work beneath the surface of Mars. Generations of Helldivers have spent their lives mining the elements that will allow the surface of the planet to one day be inhabitable. Until Darrow learns that it is all a lie; Mars IS habitable - and has been ruled for generations by the Golds, the upperclass color and rulers of the Society. The Golds regard Darrow and his fellow Reds as slaves to be exploited and worked to death. With the help of a mysterious rebel group, Darrow will stop at nothing to infiltrate the command school and take down his oppressors from the inside. @redrisingofficial@piercebrownofficial2w
marcogennuso@afilmbymanuelhsanchez I don't care much about the remake, by the time it comes out they'll most likely already be shooting The Raid 3. These originals are the only things that matter in the series lol.
afilmbymanuelhsanchez I'm going to start the original series before the remake comes out. Remakes are getting tired 😴 they remake movies that don't need a remake. They should remake movies that where bad and they should try to improve them instead of messing with something that's already good.
Tired of their servitude to man, a group of farm animals revolt and establish their own society, only to be betrayed into worse servitude by their leaders, the pigs, whose slogan becomes: "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others." This 1945 satire addresses the socialist/ communist philosophy of Stalin in the Soviet Union.2w
The world is in a state of war and Big Brother sees and controls everything. Winston Smith, a propaganda-writer for the Ministry of Truth, is keeping a journal he should not be keeping and falling in love with Julia, a woman he should not be seeing. Outwardly compliant, Winston dreams of rebellion against the oppressive Big Brother, risking everything to recover his lost sense of individuality and control of his own future.3w
