    Re: MIT student arrested with fake bomb

    There is a section of society that lives in some dream world.
    Only the guilty are arrested. By some "miracle" there is never a mistake.
    And crime is non existant....because there is some "magic formula" that law enforcement should have to stop crime beforehand.

    It was a movie with Tom Cruise.
    Precogs are just part of the storyline...they dont exist.

    Its a formula: The harder society presses law enforcement to prevent crime? The harder were pressed
    so far as privacy etc etc.

    Minority Report, directed by Speilburg, based on a short story by Philip K. ••••. •••• also wrote the stories that inspired Total Recall ("We Can Remember it for You Wholesale"), Screamers, Paycheck, A Scanner Darkly, and of course Blade Runner ("Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?"), which BTW is coming out this year in a final re-mastered version featuring three versions, including the impossible-to-find Ford-voiceover/unicorn-dream version (I held a VHS copy of this once) and a new "definitive" version re-cut by Ridley Scott. Questioning the nature of humanity, reality, and identity is typical in his works. He could also be said to have predated author William Gibson in developing the Cyberpunk genre.

    Werd... that flick is still decades ahead of it's time. Often imitated.. never equaled. I'll definitely be buying final re-mastered version and adding it to my collection.

    It will depend on what is available.. probably HD DVD.
