To Orwell Today,
re: 1984 A BAD MOVIE
To Jackie Jura,
Pardon me, but if you are the one that created your website of orwelltoday.com then you are totally misinformed about the movie "1984". It is speaking the truth about what's going to happen in our future. Okay yes I understand that every movie is going to be different than how the original book was but the movie is still making its point to how our society will be in the near future if not sooner more scary.
I see government control taking place right in my very own eyes now but so many people become oblivous towards it. Why do you think that in January 2009 we all will be getting new "High Definition TVs and cable boxes?" That's because those are put out from the government with their coupons to offer to people who don't wanna pay the expensive price to convert to their so called new tv system. Once again there's another point proving how the government wants to watch you and control easier. These TVs were shown in the movie "1984" as called "Two-Way-Televisions."
Another scene from the movie points out that the worker at the cafe pours the people drinks and then pours chemicals from a smaller bottle into it afterwards....which we all know is to keep the people more stupid and willing to be told what to do as another form of control from Big Brother aka Governmental Communism.
Just like how we today have all the food sold in the stores with chemicals called preservatives but people wonder why we have all these cancers nowadays and diseases. The doctors know why it is but do not want to say because it's their way into getting more money from people when they get put on medications that aren't good for you anyway but keep you comming back for more. Which they want for more money. Why do you think that pain relievers are such a big mark-up today? Well it's obvious.
So anyhow I'm just pointing out a few reasons as to why this movie may have some very truthful evidence about what's really going to happen in the future.
And once again I totally disagree with everyone having a social security number, more and more control. What happened to the so-called freedom we're supposed to have? But that's another lie.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on the movie version of "1984". I guess it's not as bad as I thought if it puts across so clearly those important points you mention.
I hope, now that you've seen the movie, you'll read the book and write more about "1984" and help dispel the oblivion.
All the best,
To Orwell Today,
