FYI, here's "Stay Tuned"(1992) in its entirety
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6eTAYOlDJU

Interesting that Peter Hyams is the Cinemetographer - he directed "2010"(the "2001" sequel that centered around alien contact). He also directed "Sudden Death" with Jean-Claude Van Damme(which centered around a terrorist heist at the Stanley Cup finals - in recent years, we've been hearing alot of rumors how the NWO wants to nuke a sporting event).

Correction, that should be Peter Hyams is the movie's DIRECTOR.

Edit: Even though it was way back in 1992...WOW...saw it again, for a "family film", it had PLENTY of Luciferian subliminals in it!

Yes, this was one of my favorites way back in the early 90's. It was very little seen(bombed at the box office if memory serves), but nonetheless, this is the first time I've noticed all the luciferian et al subliminals(I must have watched this at least a few times prior, the last being in 2007).

Great film. A re-telling of King Lear, I believe. Kurosawa was a master.

Mob boss Johnny Rocco (Edward G. Robinson) and an entourage of thugs hold a group of innocent people hostage in a Florida hotel in the great 1948 John Huston film "Key Largo." The main theme of the film is the arrogance of evil, and how it flourishes in the absence of those courageous enough to fight it.  Excellent performances from Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Claire Trevor, Lionel Barrymore Sr, et al.

Edward G. Robinson gives one of the greatest villain performances of all time, in my humble opinion. In this scene he explains how he basically owns the mayor of a big city - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ACTkVM6t_bo&feature=related

Just watched the movie "Network" (1976).

This scene was amazing, and the quote below, probably the most accurate description of the New World Order that I've ever seen...



JENSEN
Valhalla, Mr. Beale, please sit down --

JENSEN suddenly wheels to his audience of one and roars out:

JENSEN
You have meddled with the primal forces of nature, Mr. Beale, and I won't have it, is that clear?!  You think you have merely stopped a business deal -- that is not the case!  The Arabs have taken billions of dollars out of this country, and now they must put it back.  

It is ebb and flow, tidal gravity, it is ecological balance!  You are an old man who thinks in terms of nations and peoples.
There are no nations! There are no peoples!  There are no Russians.  
There are no Arabs! There are no third worlds!  There is no West!
 
There is only one holistic system of systems, one vast and immane, interwoven, interacting, multi-variate, multi-national dominion of dollars!


petro-dollars, electro-dollars, multi-dollars!, Reichmarks, rubles, rin, pounds and shekels!  

It is the international system of currency that determines the totality of life on this planet!
That is the natural order of things today!  That is the atomic, subatomic and galactic structure of things today![/b][/color]  

And you have meddled with the primal forces of nature, and you will atone!  Am I getting through to you, Mr. Beale?

You get up on your little twenty-one inch screen, and howl about America and democracy.  There is no America.  There is no democracy. There is only IBM and ITT and A T and T and Dupont, Dow, Union Carbide and Exxon.  Those are the nations of the world today.  What do you think the Russians talk about in their councils of state -- Karl Marx?
   
They pull out their linear programming charts, statistical decision theories and minimax solutions and compute the price-cost probabilities of their transactions and investments just like we do.  We no longer live in a world of nations and ideologies, Mr. Beale.  The world is a college of corporations, inexorably deter- mined by the immutable by-laws of business.  The world is a business, Mr. Beale!  It has been since man crawled out of the slime, and our children, Mr. Beale, will live to see that perfect world in which there is no war and famine, oppression and brutality -- one vast and ecumenical holding company, for whom all men will work to serve a common profit, in which all men will hold a share of stock, all necessities provided, all anxieties tranquilized, all boredom amused.  
And I have chosen you to preach this evangel, Mr. Beale.



That's an amazing admission of the ultimate goal for the NWO 'corporate' state. No countries, no nationalities, no individuals - only corporations in control. The CEO is god. (And in "Network", like Moses, Beall get's his gospel directly from the "God", to go forth and spread).)

Amazing that this was out there in 1976; it's a long plan.

The documentary below will show you how that worked out for the people of Turkmenistan...

Shadow of the Holy Book

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7TElc8n7hU

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKu7eb_-NL4


The people of Turkmenistan are Muslims.
Muslims follow the Koran as their guide to a lifestyle in accordance with the wishes of Allah.
How can you pull a nation of people devoted to following their God away from their Holy Book?

You give them a new Holy Book.

It's called the Ruhnama.
Watch as the NWO removes the Koran and replaces it with the Ruhnama, a giant book of utter bullsh*t.
Watch a nation of devoutly religious people turn away from God and towards the NWO.
Watch a nation under Foreign Corporate rule.

Imagine turning away from God and worshiping corporations.
Think it can't happen? Watch this video.

All you need is to have the right 'ingredients'.
It starts with a complete shutdown of free speech.
Remove any 'truth' from media. There is 100% censorship.
In a tattle-tale society where privacy does not exist.

Yep, it's called Network.

Network is a 1976 American satirical film released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer about a fictional television network, Union Broadcasting System (UBS), and its struggle with poor ratings. The film was written by Paddy Chayefsky and directed by Sidney Lumet. It stars Faye Dunaway, William Holden, Peter Finch and Robert Duvall and features Wesley Addy, Ned Beatty, and Beatrice Straight.

I just watched the Nicholas Cage 'Ghost Rider' film, the story about Johnny Blaze, a boy who sold his soul to the devil so he could cure his dads cancer. Unfortunately his dad dies after getting better, but Johnny is given supernatural stunt powers, until the day the devil comes to collect, by forcing Ghost Rider to hunt down four elemental demons and the Son of the devil, BlackHeart, who acquires the deed to thousands of demon souls. He becomes Legion, but is defeated once Ghost Rider reflects the suffering of the demons into Blackheart. Johnny Blaze gets the girl, and is offered his soul back, but declines and instead chooses to 'own the curse' and 'use it against the devil'. Moral of the story? Sell your soul, you'll get to do some cool stunts and be able to light yourself on fire without dying. He abandons his true love at the end of the movie, but its ok, because this was who he was 'always meant to be'.

Not sure if the Bourne Trilogy has been discussed here.

I watched the 3-movie series on DVD a while back, and I was very impressed.

Story about an assassin who wakes up with amnesia and sets out to unravel the mystery of who he is.

I know without a doubt this is the best 3-movie series I've ever seen, dramatically.  The sequels do not disappoint.

But on a deeper level, it exposes the world of brainwashing, and it shows the CIA in all its ugly corruption.

I watched the regular DVD set (great transfers and sound, by the way), and then I looked at the "extra scenes."  In one of the movies the CIA chief running the operation orders a "snatch and grab" in Waterloo Station (I think that's where it was).  He also orders a "sneak and peek" of a reporter's apartment, but that action is not shown in the body of the movie.  It's in the extras, though, the CIA entering a private residence and snooping through computer records and all that.

I liked the way the 3rd movie turned out.  Hell of a commentary on our spook agencies, good series.

Just wanted to mention it while I was on this part of the forum.

Was watching the 4th Terminator installment on tv the other night, and noticed something for the first time - maybe it's nothing, but in each of the 4 installments, it's not like they're(yet) fighting against the evil machines in the 'apocalyse war', but prior to this happening, the "good forces" are trying to protect John Conner from the "bad forces", ever since he was in his mother's womb. Ultimately, John Conner is being touted in the movie(ONLY in these fictional movies, that is), to be the 'savior of the world'.

Pt being that if anything, it's movies like these that are conditioning the masses to accept the OWG Antichrist described in Rev 13. No, I'm not saying the Antichrist will be John Conner, LOL, but the plot in each of these 4 movies are the SAME, pretty much, to PROTECT and PRESERVE John 'the savior of the world' Conner(ie-remember at the end of the 1991 2nd installment, the "good" terminator melted himself pretty much killing off the inevitable evil in the future, which should have prevented any more sequels).

When the counterfeit 'savior of the world' does emerge(Rev 13 prophecies unfolding), you can bet he will claim to have all the "solutions" to "everything". And who knows if the Rev 13 beast is waiting behind the curtains as we're discussing things here.

Rev 13:1  And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
Rev 13:2  And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
Rev 13:3  And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
Rev 13:4  And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
Rev 13:5  And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
Rev 13:6  And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
Rev 13:7  And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
Rev 13:8  And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
Rev 13:9  If any man have an ear, let him hear.
Rev 13:10  He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

Also, in alot of these witchcraft movies in recent years aimed at the youth and female audiences, the big red apple(ie-the "forbidden fruit" in the Garden of Eden) has been heavily advertised. I was at a job recruiting center yesterday, and went through a mall, and saw this movie poster...




Notice too the young girl is holding the apple in her right hand(ie-where the mark of the beast will be placed for those that decide to take it). The "Twilight" movies also advertises this big red apple as well.

There was a movie in recent weeks that was about a group of police officers going undercover to a high school to investigate major crimes(?drug ring?) called "21 Jump Street". It was also based on a tv show over 20 years.

FWIW, this is not the only movie that portrayed adult characters going undercover into a high school.

Undercover - 1987

A cop goes undercover in a South Carolina high school. With the help of a local narcotics officer, he investigates the drug ring responsible for another cop's death.

Well guess what - just saw this story on yahoo(which was on ABC news) where it talks about a junior 22 year old police officer going undercover as a high school student into a high school to guess what...investigate a DRUG RING SCANDAL.

Seriously...this so-called "War on Drugs" is getting way too "big brotherish". What's next? These guys going undercover into elementary schools?

Anybody seen Hunger Games

Set in a future where the Capitol selects a boy and girl from the twelve districts to fight to the death on live television, Katniss Everdeen volunteers to take her younger sister's place for the latest match.

The Hunger Games Movie Review – a Glimpse of Our Own Future if the Cancerous Growth of Government Is Not Checked

The Hunger Games is a wildly popular new movie set in a dystopian future where an all-powerful, high-tech centralized government rules over "districts" of impoverished populations barely surviving in third-world conditions. The film, based on the book of the same name by Suzanne Collins, is important to understand because it depicts the very future that the global elite are trying to create. In fact, much of what is shown in The Hunger Games has already begun (see below).

The film is set 74 years after a popular uprising that failed to overthrow a corrupt, centralized federal government. As punishment for the attempted uprising, the all-powerful government now requires each of 12 districts to "volunteer" a young girl and boy each year to participate in the Hunger Games – a bloodsport "breads and circuses" event that serves as the opiate of the masses to distract society from the fact that they are all slaves living under tyranny.

Spoiler alert: This article reveals plot elements that may spoil the movie for you if you haven't yet seen it.

Just found this interesting Three Stooges short called "You Nazty Spy" which starts out with three munitions factory executives from the fictional country Moronica discussing their appalling profits from the past year (5 million dollars in 1930's money).

"There's no money in peace! We must start a war!....But where do we find someone stupid enough to do what we tell him?"

And this was decades before Eisenhower's famous military industrial complex quote.

"What's a dictator?" "Why he's a man who makes speaches to the people promising them everything and giving them nothing. He takes everything!"

"The Terror Experiment" seems like it could have been written by someone who hangs out here.  It's widely available for rent.

The Lathe of Heaven is a 1979 film (released in 1980) based on the 1971 Science Fiction novel The Lathe of Heaven by Ursula K. Le Guin. It was produced in 1979 as part of New York City public television station WNET's Experimental TV Lab project, and directed by David Loxton and Fred Barzyk.[1] Le Guin, by her own account, was involved in the casting, script planning, re-writing, and filming of the production.[2]
 
The film stars Bruce Davison as protagonist George Orr, Kevin Conway as Dr. William Haber, and Margaret Avery as lawyer Heather LeLache.
