Pete's Log: Log Entry 375

Entry #375, Tue, July 25, 2000, 10:36 EST (Movies)
(posted when I was 22 years old.)
some more notes on "fantastic planet": the video we watched was both dubbed and subtitled. but the subtitles must have been translated by someone other than the person who translated the dubbed lines, since frequently they were quite different. same general idea, but different expressions, and sometimes even different names...

found some interesting comments about the movie on imdb:

A very interesting political parable, apparently intended as an allegory on Czechislovakia's struggle against the Russians. But like any good allegory, it works as a statement on any struggle to topple a giant.


As an interesting final note, the theme of knowledge overcoming power, and particularly the use of a "knowledge machine" suspiciously appeared later in L. Ron Hubbard's "Battlefield Earth", giving us one less reason to retain any respect for the man.
