on line movies through library

Today William and I tested out "Hoopla" which is the way that the Regina Public Library is allowing its patrons to access online media such as ebooks, audio books, music, and movies,  While it took ten minutes of monkeying around to register and get the right plug in downloaded, it appears that from now on it will be easy. The list of movies is large and somewhat random. We watched "Silent Running". I'd not listed it as a dystopia before, but listening to the discussion about earth within it, there is certainly grounds for dystopic association. Earth is now entirely crime free, weather free (all at 75 degrees somehow), unemployment free, and starvation free (everyone eats the same processed foot pellets). Uniformity leaves no room for someone with different ideas, and thus the story.
