Logan’s Run (1976)
Crystals embedded in their palms gradually turn red over time, alerting citizens of a postapocalyptic society that they must attend “Carousel,” where they will be “reborn.” Riiiight. Thirty is the maximum acceptable age in this world, and legends of a sanctuary exists for those wishing to escape Carousel. The movie tells the story of a Sandman (one charged with stopping people from escaping, or “runners” ) who attempts escape. It stars Michael York, features a cameo by Farrah Fawcett, and has a pretty bad-ass robot scene. One of my favorite flicks. Check it out!
We’re going away. Pack your shit, folks. We’re going away. And we won’t leave much of a trace, either. Maybe a little Styrofoam … The planet’ll be here and we’ll be long gone. Just another failed mutation. Just another closed-end biological mistake. An evolutionary cul-de-sac. The planet’ll shake us off like a bad case of fleas!—George Carlin
