View Full Version : WI certain movies not made
January 19th, 2004, 12:33 PM
How would hist been affected had certain movies not been made ? This thread is similar to the ALTERNATEHISTORY.COM contribution re certain books not being written.
No BIRTH OF A NATION- would there have been a resurgence of the KKK during WWI ?
No APOCALYPSE NOW- lesser portrayal of VW as insane hell fought by drug addicts ?
No GLORY- no awareness among wider society of role of blacks in ACW ?
No BLACKHAWK DOWN- lack of public awareness of US military intervention in Somalia + lesser appreciation of US special operations missions necessary in response to Sept 11th ?
Anybody else got any contributions ?

Saving Private Ryan: directors of war movies don't have urge to start movie with massive, bloody fight scene
The Matrix: Directors don't have urge to stick "flying" scenes into every movie and comercials. And I have different screen saver. ;)

No Gone With the wind-Less reinforcement of the false belief that the white south was a victim in the Civil War
No Roots-- even less awareness on the part of whites about the history of African-Americans in the US
No Alien- SciFi/Horror never develops a really brutal dark side on screen
No Star Trek II the Wrath of Khan-No Star Treks 3-10, The Next Generation,DS9,Voyager and Enterprise which would really suck ass.

Scream: Slasher movies don't get their revival in late 1990s. Not necessary a bad thing. Altough Neve Campbell doesn't get her chance. Which would be a bad thing.

Did "Birth of a Nation" really lead to a resurgence of KKK activity all on it's own? I always thought it was a symptom, not the cause...
No "Jurassic Park"... CGI used more for mechanical things (as in T2) instead of creating living things?

no reefer madness movie is a good POD for making it so that we never see any attempt of a drug war.
