Newt's movie review

Wow, Heston sweats like a horse.

Soylent Green has a very Star Trek (TOS) feel to it, especially with its view of the future where there is rampant over-crowding, 70s decorating, and no regard for racial differences. I like that. I also thought Robinson's death scene was excellent. You really should see it once, but once will likely be plenty.
