Sci Fi I Was Never Interested In
Looks like they’re doing a TV version of the Snowpiercer, a movie based on a French graphic novel.
Supposedly it will “fix” some of the problems with the movie because it didn’t have enough time.
insofar as I’m concerned, there are two problems with the movie that made me never want to go see it.
The first is, obvious from the trailers, a heavy handed class warfare message.
The second, though, is the premise.
You’ve got a goddamned perpetual motion engine – unlimited power – and instead of using it to power generators and provide heat you fucking waste all of it on a train on a global track?
No goddamned imagination, no matter how stylish the setting.
