Millenials...


Have clearly taken over the board. They just dont understand this movie at all. The wierd music, the english slang, the themes, the violence, the fact that it was made in the 70s, etc and so forth, have clearly left them scratching their heads. They dont know what to make of it.

This was meant to appeal more to the Baby Boomers, Generation X'ers, though shallow for the most part, seemed to like this, but Millennial's had their brains programed so much for political correctness and a conservative sense of humor, so yes they won't "get it" as much.

"Millennial's had their brains programed so much for political correctness and a conservative sense of humor"

I have been noticing this more and more amongst the millenials I know.
I can only hope they have a massive hippie like movement where they as a group shake off the Orwellian shackles they have been raised in and free their minds because there are alot ofgood kids in their midst.

And interestingly enough, Alex is supposed to be a late X'er/Early Millennial with the time period this takes place. He has too much charm and personality to be one of them!

reply

Actually, it takes place in an alternate seventies. You can see a date on one of the newspapers, it dated 1971 or 1973 or spmething. I forgot which, but it's definitely the early 70s.

reply

Right, because in the novel this was the future, since it was written in the early 60s.

What I have noticed about millennials and Liberals In general really is they can't think metaphorically or creatively.

They take everything literally which is why they have problems with certain films or art in general.

And they hate being challenged because deep down they know their ideology doesn't make sense.

Yeah, genius. Reply to that 2-year old message written by someone who doesn't even have an account on this forum. You reply to it as hard as you can.

Derp.

You have given me a lot of insight into your mental state. I wish you all the best with your illness but I am going to set you to ignore now as you aren't a very good or interesting troll and I am bored with you.

Best of luck sweets.

I'm not the one replying to a 2-year old IMDB message written by someone who has no account here.

You should be thankful I gave you the information instead of trying to project your own ignorance on to me, darling :)

Don't you think that's a truth non-exclusive to Millennials? Anybody who becomes fanatical to any cause or ideology lacks a sense of humour about it, in my experience. SJWs have no sense of humour about most subjects, but have you seen an alt-right or MAGA type explode at the merest suggestion of a satire on Trump? Outside of the political sphere, I need hardly stroll too far to find protests against Kevin Smith's film Dogma. And I seem to recall several overreactions to cartoons about Mohammed...

I agree that Millennials have a bunch of hair triggers regarding a certain set of social issues, but so does every other dogmatist.

reply

Way to over-generalize and miss the mark.

reply

Really stupid comment.

reply

Yeah I agree this movie needs a tough mindset to appreciate, it isn't exactly for millenniums who likes light-hearted superhero flicks..

Generalizations are valid if they are generally accurate. They do not have to be uniformly accurate to have value.

I do think millenials have a (not in the political sense) conservative outlook and sense of art and culture. I can see how that would affect their view of a film like this even if some enjoy it very much.

reply

Thanks for your thoughtful reply! I was wondering what Millennial hipsters make of mid-20th-century counterculture. I mean, just wearing clothes from the period or decorating that way doesn't automatically guarantee every hipster is going to love the same genres of movies, tv and music. Kubrick is definitely informed by all decades - including the future - in his films.

Some of my friends people call hipsters love Pokemon Go and classic Kubrick and Jane Austen, it's great to see people of all ages enjoying the same things. I'm an old Boho goth. I just love anything that moves me.

I'm always confused by the term "hipster." I assume that word be used for generations who looked to embrace the former, but I see it often applied to people who grew up in the era they still love and wear.

I can't speak for all my peers, obviously, but I was born in 1999 and this is one of my favourite movies of all time. I like the book too, but the film is pure art and even though it may be frightening or violent, it has an important message, which is still relevant today.
I don't want to sound like 'the special snowflake' so I will just say that I remain optimistic and believe that there are more people in my generation that can appreciate this film, not all millenials are shallow and overly PC.

reply

Just say it. The millenia ls are a bunch of politically correct pussies

reply

Don't worry about them...

Their phones will tell them what to think about it.



Mustard goes on Hot Dogs. Mayo goes on Burgers. There will be no compromise on this.

reply

The reason Kubrick pulled the film from release wasn't that supposedly gangs formed, it was because he and his family received death treaths.

reply

I'm a millenial and Kubrick and Lynch are my absolute favourite directors However I know that most people in my age would dislike most of their movies
Even other film buffs I know in my age dont really appreciate movies like Clockwork orange , millenials tend to like more straightforward stories hence why MCU is bringing in a ton of Cash while I'll go watch Sicario all along in my local theatre
Also I hate when people say that not everyone like deep art films that needs analyzing cause they are not made for entertainmnet in the same way, ALL movies are made for entertaiment purpose
I'm entertained by a movie Like Clockwork orange because it is a great story told in a bold and very effective way and it Also gives you question to think about a long time after the en Credits start to roll

reply

I'd say you're stereotyping a bit. This movie was made before I was born, yet I'd say that I would "get it". Of course there's loads of ignorant idiots among Millenials, but there where equally many among the Gen Xers. Remember Gen Xers where the ones ushering in the absolute retardation of Cinema with the likes of Michael Bay, Roland Emmerich, Wayans Brothers and Adam Sandler.

Not being ignorant and actually educating yourself about cinema is not so much a question of age but intellect and interest.

reply

To add to that, the baby boomers had Porky's, Smokey and the Bandit, etc. Dumb movies have been around since the silent era.
