EftRoU 135: in time vs logan’s run…

So we had some technical difficulties the last couple of weeks. First we had a computer go bad and then we had an application crash on us. So this episode is out late. Thanks for being kind to us and coming back to listening in. For your listening pleasure we discuss the retro DVD Logan’s Run and the feature flick In Time.

Retro DV-Debrief :

Logan's Run

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM)

We thought it would be good to compare the retro DVD Logan’s Run to this week’s feature flick. Logan’s Run is takes place in 2274 and every on can only live until the age of 30. Once you hit the ripe old age of 30 you terminated in a quasi-religious ceremony known as Carousel. There are some that avoid the ceremony and choose to run. Michael York, Jenny Agutter and Richard Jordan star in this movie. Let us know if you think this movie stands the test of time or let us know if you ever liked by leaving us a comment below.

Feature Flick:

 

In Time

New Regency Picture

As we mentioned before we wanted to compare our retro DVD to this week’s Feature Flick, which is In Time. In a future people have been genetically engineered to not age past 25. AS soon as you reach the age of 25 you only get a year to live longer. Justin Timberlake plays Will Salas a man who has been gifted more years than he could ever earn and is now living a life he never had. We get to see how Salas lives his life with time to spend in an adventure he has never been on. Other fine performances in this film include Cillian Murphy, Amanda Seyfried, Johnny Galecki, Olivia Wilde and Matt Bomer. Let us know what you think of this film by leaving a comment below.

We hope we have our technical issues figured out so come back later this week to hear another great episode from Entertainment for the Rest of Us.
