Summary
  • 2001: a space odyssey: A science fiction film which moves from the pre-historic birth of intelligence toward the emergence of man as pure thought somewhere in the future
  • Soylent green: It's New York, in the 21st century, teeming with 40 million citizens, most of whom are out of work. Environmental erosion is almost complete and voluntary death is encouraged by government-sponsored clinics. For their food, the people have grown to rely almost totally on a greenish, wafer-like substance called soylent. As Detective Thorn investigates the murder of a magnate in the dictatorial Soylent Company, he comes face to face with the hideous truth about the secret ingredient of "Soylent Green."
  • Forbidden planet: The far-off star Altair-IV, occupied by two lone inhabitants and Robby the Robot, is visited by a search party from Earth
  • The time machine: In 1899, a young scientist invents a time machine that takes him into the future of the 20th century and beyond
