I just love this movie however i feel it's relevant to this website. Before Internet, before technology took off this movie grabbed the minds of those who knew there wasn't quite something right with the planet in which we live. The story behind it is interesting as well.

I just wanna know if anyone here has watched this, and if they think everything here on planet earth is 'normal' , or/and if everyone else who questions this reality is the classic 'crazy' that disinformers like to label people with who disagree with them.

I just thought this would be a fun and informative analysis nothing more nothing less. But considering millions think about it, why not talk about it, people are curious and humanity needs to wake up.

Please on a side note: No dic*ks or potty mouths allowed, only curious intelligent people need apply.




Roddy Piper years later and his take on this movie among other things going on, on planet earth.

The Matrix is also about waking up from the world that has been pulled over our eyes to make us conform, in order to turn us into…

we'll you get the point.

Both are movies compared to the real world, both are modern story telling using Plato's, Anology of the Caves from the Republic of Plato as their basis.

Another spin off… in the beginning the man is asleep, in the end he exits the cave and wakes up…

Yes great analogy. Plato's Cave, excellent, yes, and from the Great Greek Philosopher himself. I am glad you metioned Plato, along with I pet goat ii. Thankyou.


“Dictatorship naturally arises out of democracy, and the most aggravated form of tyranny and slavery out of the most extreme liberty.” – Plato


One can only assume it has to end at some point. I believe it will.

I remember seeing that film years ago. Made me think about a few thing in normal life. I really should watch it again sometime.

Strong scene.

never seen the full movie , but this fragment i have seen quite a few times already.

The message is strong though , the person has the ability too see the world as it really is by using the sunglasses.

And the Sunglasses would be iconic as it is a tool to help you see.

Almost like the message is if one would change his view of the world he would get a different perception of things.

And see what it really is.

Love this movie, I wish they would do a remake, maybe they don't want to because it was a true story!

Yes absolutely. I think it's high time everyone started to change their perception about what this place really is, apart from the one they're all spoon fed through the media. Time and time again, i see people posting and it's like half of their opinions on everything from the Moon Landing to GMO'S repeatedly resembles digitally regurgitated responses.

And you have to wonder if any of those people know how to 'think on their own' anymore, do they know how to 'Imagine' or 'Dream' anymore. The world has become very sad, and very politically correct.

You're probably correct there, i think the fact that this movie even made it out there during a time when the internet didn't yet exist, and there was more control over content, is nothing short of miraculous. It would be interesting to see a remake but, i have to say nothing will ever compare to the original, much like the planet of the apes, the remakes just aren't the same quality.

I just want to mention something here i should've earlier.

I am not a fan of Alex Jones nor do i watch his programming ... However, that said, i posted that particular video because i do like Roddy Piper and i do feel he is an honest old school ordinary kind of guy who genuinely wants to know the truth like everyone else who is interested. Sometimes there is truth even in places we don't expect. So take the good and toss out the bad and remember it's all good in the end.

Excellent Vids, Thankyou for posting this. I'm watching now. I do enjoy these wake up video's if you will. I find it amazing how few people seem to know how to 'critical think' anymore. From what i remember reading a while back, John Carpenter had a hell of a time getting this movie made and out there.

And all this time people like You and I and the other Posters here just thought it was all Common Sense and Natural Intuition, imagine that eh?


The God's of Eden was mentioned in the Video you posted, i have that book, excellent book i have been wanting to re-read it lately.

I want everyone to watch these, they're incredibly profound!

I must post the second and third video's to go with the one you did.

The guy who made these is absolutely Brilliant, he conveys everything precisely the way it is, the way those who are awake would say it but many times don't know how!

One of my favorite movies growing up. This movie is what got me interested in conspiracies and not taking things at face value. Follow the money and trust no one.
