TRASHY SEMI-PROPHETIC "CHERRY 2000"

Cherry 2000 is a trashy "cult" trans-humanist B-movie, from 1988, that could have been a commercial and artistic hit with a better use of its budget and more backing from the kike-studio.

Strangely, it is supposed to have cost $10,000,000 to make, but I can't see that on the screen. Maybe a lot of cash was siphoned off as part of some sort of tax-fraud or money-laundering? Or it all went on cocaine? The movie was released straight-to-VHS, and earned an amazing $14,000.

Warning: Cherry 2000 really is trashy!

I only find it interesting in the same way as watching old news stories and thinking about the zeitgeist then, the common social attitudes and expectations, and then comparing them to how things have turned out over time.

The only funny scene is from 2:55 to 6:15. It's a real 80's "cult" classic scene. The same thing happens now when people jerk off in the bath with porn on their "smart" phones. Seriously. And I'm sure a few hospital emergency ward staff could tell you true stories about women and queers who found out the hard way that their so-called "toys" aren't actually waterproof.

There are some prophetic elements (more than in most sci-fi movies):

"In the year 2017, the United States has suffered a series of civil insurrections and economic downturns, fragmenting America into post-apocalyptic wastelands and limited civilized areas. One of the effects of the economic crisis is a decline in manufacturing both in quantity and quality, and heavy emphasis on recycling aging 20th Century mechanical equipment. At the same time, robotic technology has made tremendous developments and female androids (or "gynoids") are used as substitutes for wives. Society has become increasingly bureaucratic and hypersexualized, with the declining human sexual encounters requiring contracts drawn up by lawyers prior to sexual activity."

The "star" is very lacklustre. He was last seen as Kike "Scooter" Libby in some kike agit-prop movie about "The Plame Affair, and is best "known for his role as General Robert Brewster in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines." Poor guy. He must have had dreams of great stardom when he got cast in the leading role in Cherry 2000.

The only real "star" is Melanie Griffiths, who acts more fake than the gyndroid; and who, ironically, is now so physically artificial that she can't even make her "trademark" pouts and "sassy" facial expressions.



The soundtrack, by Basil Poledouris (Lonesome Dove, Conan the Barbarian, The Hunt for Red October, RoboCop, Spellbinder, etc.), is not bad. It became a real collector's item, since it was hard to find, since the movie was never theatrically released and was only rented in a few stores in La and NY.



Cherry 2000 is a Phillip K. Dick-style knock-off story. The scriptwriter worked on the Schwarzenegger version of Total Recall. (Sharon Stone: "You wouldn't hurt me. After all, we're married." KABLAMM! Ahhnuld: "Considdah zatt a divawss!)



Speaking of "great death scenes", as much as I despise Quinton Tarantino, this is a great scene with Bridget Fonda and Robert DeNiro:



The theatre audience cheered and clapped. Such scenes in isolation have a real black comedy appeal, but are disturbing when made into an "aesthetic of death", as is the case with The Kike or The Kike's Whore Tarantino's overall prawdoose.
