Well…April 2022 does have some elements of the movie

In memory of what was Charlton Heston’s final movie in his Dystopian Trilogy I’ve gone with Soylent Green as the theme. Planet of the Apes was way too far in the future and I’m confident The Omega Man happens closer to the time … Continue reading
