I really did enjoy this short film. I was thinking about this post this week. I love dystopias, I could never ever watch a utopian film, I’d probably put a foot in my TV it would be so unreal to me. I did find it jarring and a little shocking that I had originally disliked this movie, maybe the reality of the director’s vision didn’t sit well with me. However, after much time has passed, it feels like an old friend.
I recommend that everyone watch this video, you can rent it on YouTube for 2.99, and it is available on Amazon.com for a 7 day rental for only 1.99. (way to go Amazon with those prices)
Here’s the trailer below.
Here is the trailer for the one starring Sean Astin
Below you can read my initial thoughts, enjoy.
2081 is a sort film directed and written by Chandler Tuttle. It is based on the sort story “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut. It stars James Cosmo, Julie Hagerty, and Armie Hammer.
Although it was a very interesting 25 minutes I didn’t really enjoy it. I thought that the film was much too brief and didn’t fully expand on the situation that is occurring within the movie. I much more enjoyed the Showtime Movie that starred Sean Astin (the dude from the Rudy movie). In comparison with that movie, I felt that the director’s treatment of the story was much too brief. However, “Harrison Bergeron” with Sean Astin focused way too much on the intellectual aspect rather than all aspects of what the Handicapper General’s job of creating equality was. In 2081 he was able to show the entirety of the way that creating equality would be achieved.
All in all I give the movie NNN
I plan to watch Harry Brown, Yogi Bear, and the New Tron
The movie that I’m looking forward to for this coming year is Thor; The hammer of the Gods and all that good stuff. Enjoy this video.
