The Prophecy[edit]

Why is there no mention of the Scott Peterson prophecy that appears on the screen in the cryo prison? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 199.209.144.16 (talk) 19:05, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

Probably because... you are an idiot. A random name on a screen isn't a "prophecy" let alone worth mentioning. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.197.144.134 (talk) 19:27, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

Post-cyberpunk[edit]

I removed Demolition Man from the category postcyberpunk.

I'm neither an expert in Stallone movies nor post-cyberpunk (cyberpunk is more my thing), but my understanding is that post-cyberpunk is basically cyberpunk... without the dystopia. However, Demolition Man is categorized as both post-cyberpunk and dystopian. From my understanding, this is impossible. Furthermore, I don't really see how it qualifies as cyberpunk, but if someone really wants to add cyberpunk, be my guest. I would really prefer that you give some kind of citation or defense for this, however. As far as I can recall, there were no cyberpunk themes in Demolition Man. The last time I saw it was probably 15 years ago, so maybe I'm just forgetful. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 00:20, 24 February 2013 (UTC)

Remove Obama's listing as cast member[edit]

Barack Obama as Doctor Raymond Cocteau - bad taste — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.111.220.38 (talk) 08:24, 26 February 2013 (UTC)

Please change "Phoenix encounters Dr. Cocteau during his escape, and though he tries to shoot him, finds himself unable to find." to "Phoenix encounters Dr. Cocteau during his escape, and though he tries to shoot him, finds himself unable to do so." because the wording is incorrect.

Done. Thanks for noticing the error. Dimadick (talk) 17:11, 11 September 2015 (UTC)

This movie was released back in the Summer of 1986... Not 1992...

The only proof I have is My memory- I am 51- I got married in September 1986- I saw the movie with my boy friend in the summer of 1986, I had a friend ( co-worker ) that reminded me of Sandra Bullock- and I told her about the movie. In 1992 my 2nd child was born.. There was No way I was going to the movies that year to see it....

Please look into this discrepancy.. I know the date has been wrong for a while.. Thank you, Diane Pinkus Pinkusmr@yahoo.com 72.68.11.166 (talk) 15:44, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

Sorry, Bullock was a college junior in 1986 and didn't begin her film career until the 1990s. Your memory is at fault. JesseRafe (talk) 16:03, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
