Dave I was going to say a few things you missed. Outside of coctau brainwashing sylvesters character to be more docile, and want to knit, etc... and the other with passwords connections, tactics, etc.... I think you got it all. I didn't think about it until just now, but sandra bullock has been in a lot of similar pictures about the follies of perfection, in such cases, The net(The security company ends up being the ultimate villain), love potion #9(Striving for permanent devotion, a person ends up almost becoming a slave), demolition man(the head of a "socialist paradise" is the ultimate villain), and even miss congeniality(The head of a pageant is a murderer). BTW I liked all of those shows! I thought ALL were either funny, or suspenseful. The NET was more suspenseful than funny, but still good. AND, as I said, ALL have a worthwhile message. There is a saying in business that is pretty true. Perfection is the enemy of good. OR, to put it another way, a bird in the hand(all the good you have) is worth two in the bush(striving for perfection), so it is better to protect what you have, and improve, than endlessly seek the perfect and never get anywhere.

You should watch "Idiocracy" as well as it also a pretty good satire on current social tendencies.

... Indeed ,it's a quirky movie, But,on the other hand,it's basically how the western world is going,or touch wood, political correctness, is simply a passing phase,and it will become very unfashionable,soon!.

Marc Colten (26 days ago)
This movie suffers from one of the major tropes I've seen in SciFi - the localization of the story. It's like The Time Machine where we go 800,000 years in the future but we never see what the world is like outside of a 5 mile radius of where the Time Traveler's house was. Are there Eloi and Morlocks on the European Continent, the Americas, Asia or Africa? I'm talking about the book, not the movie where they blamed it all on nuclear war and fallout. In Demolition Man they act as if the San Angeles mega-city is all of America. You don't like Cocteau's idiotic vision? What's happening in Portland, Miami, Santa Fe? They never say. Unless this one city is all that's left of the Earth - move. There must be other places where you can live like you want.

I quote this movie all of the time. Funny that back then the hint was that it would be conservatives who would be the puritans and push censorship and control. Now this is EXACTLY what the leftists are doing. And now dennis leary supports the leftists and just what he claimed to stand against in the movie. The real dennis leary would support the murder of the character he played in demolition man.

This movie is soo cool, but I'm afraid that its future becomes in our present, it would be a nonsense and... *Censorship Machine:* BEEEP! ... Xavier Matews you are fined One hundred credit for a violation of the verbal morality statute. But what the hell is this machine? you fine me for that amount just for saying "nonsense" censoring me and taking away my freedom of speech and thought ... This is something very bad, people should talk freely and share disparate opinions, with this in mind we would achieve a healthier society, with greater diversity of thought, greater intellectual wealth and always driving the search for the self-improvement of individuals and of all human civilization. *Censorship Machine:* BEEEEEEEEEEEEP! Xavier Mathews you are fined One thousand credit and will go to prison for be a evil fascist and for a violation of the SJW Totalitarian Law.

''In today's society''............A sentence uttered during all ages, by everyone all the time. Political correctness is just a newer fancier word for doing and saying what you are told. Which has been a concept that has been cheered and enforced throughout history for millennia. Only difference is that most people are literate now and the internet removed the power of documentation away from just a select few elite.

Another great movie because of the inception of truth in it. Without the knowledge of wit. Somehow truth imitates art. If that makes sense well its because we're living it now. Anyways it's about the story. Like Orwell Animal Farm. People don't read it because they don't understand it.

In 1994 I watched Demolition Man on VHS and enjoyed its cheesiness. Today I appreciate Demolition Man for being an allegory for political correctness run amok.

"Alone"? Dude. Sandra was fucking HOT in this film. She's worth the torture alone.
Scott Wheeler (1 month ago)
In 1993 when I was 13 it was all laughs with my uncle and cousin thinking the future would never get this weak, but now......this vision of the future is not so funny anymore thanks to the Patriot Act, surveillance state, etc. I'm really afraid of Minority Report becoming reality because then if you could be charged with "pre-crime" then freedom as we know it not just freedom of speech or beliefs would be in serious jeopardy.

Odd that it would be based on Brave New World. In Huxley's "Brave New World" the people were pacified by a world of distraction and pleasure. But, really, the whole point of Demolition Man was to amplify the 80's movie trope of the action hero cop just trying to get his job done while the stupid chief sides with the bean counters and pearl clutchers. 1993 was also a time when the main beefs with political correctness were mostly about animals rights, smoking, and people you get upset when you make a joke that actually offended them.

Sandra Bullick's character's name, Huxley, was of course from the author of Brave New World Aldous Huxley. I believe it was even Lenina Huxley, and one of the characters in Brave New World was named Lenina.

1993's "Demolition Man" accurately predicted the over-sensitive, hyper-political correctness we see now in 2018 which started since 2016.

Paul Steven (3 months ago)
Yes, yes, yes, I do see that there is a real dilemma here. In that, while it has been government policy to regard policy as a responsibility of Ministers and administration as a responsibility of Officials, the questions of administrative policy can cause confusion between the policy of administration and the administration of policy, especially when responsibility for the administration of the policy of administration conflicts, or overlaps with, responsibility for the policy of the administration of policy.
TheWyrdSmythe (3 months ago)
For such a silly, but totally goofy fun, movie it had surprising depth, texture, and imagination. And, like the film Idiocrcy, was way on point about society! But that’s kinda the _point_ of the best SF...

We need to find a balance BETWEEN idiocracy where society relies on corporate conditioning and mob rule, and demolition man where society relies on big government and happy thoughts, not one or the other.

I find it entertaining to think that, as a concept for the movie, every other day you can't drink coffee, then a new scientific paper comes out and you can drink it one or two days afterwards, meanwhile the scientists are just swigging tons of the stuff under the guise of studying it when in reality they love coffee and they haven't been able to get nearly as much done as they use to. I feel like that would fit in with the movie with just the general absurdity.

I've seen this movie before but your description of it prompted me to remember the story of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden. God said "don't eat the fruit of knowledge of good and evil or you will surly die." So what did the humans do? Of course they ate the fruit. I am not a Christian but I know the creation story in the Bible and I'd imagine that the film makers did too. I don't believe it is human nature to rebel necessarily, but I think that it is human nature to explore possibilities and expand our horizons. Also, you cannot learn without making mistakes and so in order to grow we must first fail. If this were not the case then Adam and Eve would've never ate the fruit and lived perfectly unaware and unambitious forever maybe but that sort of plateaued stagnation does not appeal to me at all.

literally just watched the movie, beeing a kid of the 90s I have to say it was a bit cheesy but kinda fit the time I guess? I enjoyed the hell out of it especially all the Huxley references, having read Brave New World just a couple of months ago :D also good series man, really relevant now, I saw 'equilibrium' mentioned further down, that one's a must for topics like this. I'll try and think of more, take care!

0:35 False. We find out later from Phoenix that they were already dead. 1:02 Cuck-tow is more like it. 2:47 HK G11 prototype. In the movie, it's a stand-in for some sort of energy weapon. 3:29 28mm double-barrel flare gun.

I love this movie, filled with so many one-liners and it's fun to see the police get their asses kicked by Simon. That electronic swear jar. Pfft. Spartan: "Thanks a lot you shit-brained, fuck-faced, ball breaking, duck fucking pain in the ass." Machine: John Spartan, you are fined five credits for repeated violations of the verbal morality statute. Spartan: (grabs stack of tickets) "So much for the seashells. See you in a few minutes."

If there were only one reason to like this film it would be Bullock saying, "You really licked his ass!" That quote still brings out the 12 year old in me! Edgar Friendly reminds me of the protagonist in Ayn Rand's "Anthem" named "Equality 7-2521" but called himself "Prometheus." There is a point where he wonders why humanity would sacrifice their freedom! I personally wonder that every day.

All the premises of this stupid movie would be OK if they were 300 years, not 30 in the future. As it stands, it's completely idotic. I know it's a sort of parody, but the time frame is so stupid that it completely destroys the illusion for me.
