Fahrenheit 451 : HBO & More

About two years ago, a letter arrived from a solemn young Vassar lady telling me how much she enjoyed reading my experiment in space mythology, The Martian Chronicles. But, she added, wouldn’t it be a good idea, this late in time, to rewrite the book inserting more women’s characters and roles? – Forward, Fahrenheit 451

HBO “Modern” Remake

[ see reference article and link(s) below ]

Fahrenheit 451 book is loaded, chock-full loaded with Scriptures from the Holy Bible. But HBO burned that out of the movie.

The HBO perversion movie has zero scriptures, and the outlawed book is “The Communist Manifesto” – which isn’t outlawed anywhere. Good marketing for the Chinese coin wouldn’t you say?

The HBO Fahrenheit 451 move is a sham and hypocritical mass propaganda that has everything dumbed down and stupid.

A wise man’s heart guides his mouth, and his lips promote instruction. (Proverbs 16:23)

  • Directed by Ramin Bahrani, “Fahrenheit 451” also stars Sofia Boutella, Laura Harrier and Lilly Singh. The movie is set to debut on HBO in May – HuffPost
HBO “Modern Interpretation”

HBO is producing a political propaganda remake of Fahrenheit 451 with  “Black Panther scene-stealer Michael B. Jordan”.

They, HBO claim it is a “modern reinterpretation.”

If this were so then HBO would burn-up the politically correct snowflakes and lawless revenge sweeping the nation.

However, we can bet our bottom dollar such is not the case.

Before you let yourself be deluded into lawlessness you might want to read the book Fahrenheit 451 as it is chock full of scripture.

Yes, Scripture from the Good Book, the Bible. Keeping in mind that there is nothing Christian or Jesus-like in the movie Black Panther or HBO’s production of Fahrenheit 451.

There is a new audio version out with Tim Robbins reading Fahrenheit 451 however, probably intentional, the Forward was left out of the reading. It is ironic that the very message of Fahrenheit 451 is the exact issue HBO is engaging in – the silencing of others by claiming to be offended.

The message of Fahrenheit 451 is not government censorship but society censorship. Whereby society enjoyed its escapism and silencing of all reasonable thought process. Like unto the unique prosecutors of today who fill the halls of justice with the enflaming lies, twists, and turns of legalities. Where sensuality, spelled H-B-O replaces thinking and thus the burning of the opposition.

Here is part of the forward from the book.

In the fall of 1978, a Missouri high school English teacher and his students discovered that student copies of Fahrenheit 451 differed from the teacher’s personal copy—certain words or phrases deemed controversial or offensive had been eliminated from the special edition printed for school-age readers more than a decade earlier. This class may not have been the first group of readers to notice the differences, but they were the first to write to Ray Bradbury, who was unaware of the changes. A restored edition soon followed in 1979, completely reset and concluding with Bradbury’s final word on the sanctity of texts.

About two years ago, a letter arrived from a solemn young Vassar lady telling me how much she enjoyed reading my experiment in space mythology, The Martian Chronicles. But, she added, wouldn’t it be a good idea, this late in time, to rewrite the book inserting more women’s characters and roles? A few years before that I got a certain amount of mail concerning the same Martian book complaining that the blacks in the book were Uncle Toms, and why didn’t I “do them over”? – Bradbury, Ray. Fahrenheit 451:  Simon & Schuster.

While I reserve the right to be wrong, HBO might get it correct, I suggest you first read the book, or listen to the old version of the audiobook if you can find it,[*] or at least watch the blue-ray version of the movie from 1996. While there are no scriptures in that movie either, it at least is a thinker movie rather than an up-and-coming-sensualized-HBO-propaganda modern twisting.

Based on HBO’s pornography productions this “modern” version is not worth your attention.

“Even the most fanatic firemen would have a hard time burning all the copies of a best seller like “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.” After J. K. Rowling spoke out against Donald Trump on Twitter, people tweeted that they were planning to burn their Harry Potter books. So we followed suit. Famously banned books had to go: “The Autobiography of Malcolm X,” “Lolita,” “Leaves of Grass” and “The Communist Manifesto.” While we were shooting the film, “To Kill a Mockingbird,” a frequent target of censorship, was once again banned in some schools, so into the flames it went. For some authors, having a book burned in the film was a badge of honor. Werner Herzog and Hamid Dabashi generously donated their work to be burned alongside the best and the worst of literature. If we save “Wise Blood” then we must preserve “Mein Kampf” as well.

Watching the books burn was an otherworldly experience. The hiss of incinerating pages sounded like the final gasps of hundreds of dying souls. The more we burned, the more hypnotic it became — a mesmerizing spectacle of pages curling and embers dancing into the void.

Bradbury believed that we wanted the world to become this way. That we asked for the firemen to burn books. That we wanted entertainment to replace reading and thinking. That we voted for political and economic systems to keep us happy rather than thoughtfully informed. He would say that we chose to give up our privacy and freedom to tech companies. That we decided to entrust our cultural heritage and knowledge to digital archives. The greatest army of firemen will be irrelevant in the digital world. They will be as powerless as spitting babies next to whoever controls a consolidated internet. How could they stop one person, hiding in his parents’ basement with a laptop, from hacking into thousands of years of humanity’s collective history, literature and culture, and then rewriting all of it … or just hitting delete?

And who would notice?” ⟦Why ‘Fahrenheit 451’ Is the Book for Our Social Media Age – The New York Times⟧

“Ramin Bahrani is a writer, director and Guggenheim fellowship recipient whose films include “Chop Shop” and “99 Homes.” His adaptation of “Fahrenheit 451” will air on HBO on May 19.”

(huffingtonpost.com)—The first trailer for HBO’s upcoming film adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s groundbreaking novel “Fahrenheit 451” is here, and it certainly looks more exciting than high school English class.

This time around, “Black Panther” scene-stealer Michael B. Jordan stars as the increasingly disillusioned Guy Montag, who lives in a dystopian future where books are outlawed and he is tasked with finding and burning them.

“A little knowledge is a dangerous thing,” his superior, Captain Beatty (Michael Shannon), says in the clip. “News, facts, memoirs, internet of old ― burn it.”

In the trailer, Jordan informs a classroom of children that the written word will one day be erased for good, as he sets fire to just about everything around him. We also get a peek at the futuristic “Blade Runner”-like cityscape, and people in a club wearing virtual-reality headsets.

Because the book came out in 1953, spoiler alerts are a little past due, so expect Jordan’s character to begin to question his role in the oppressive society and to fight back against the government-mandated censorship.
