Google update

As of this morning at 6:00 Eastern time, all of the sites have been cleared except the Top 20 movie nude scene lists and (for mysterious reasons) Charlie's site. In both of those cases, Google's webmaster tools page says,

"Status of the latest badware review for this site: A review for this site has finished. The site was found clean. The badware warnings from web search are being removed. Please note that it can take some time for this change to propagate."

Is this the end of the problem? I don't know. The results of their bot scans were so completely insane (including non-existent pages, long-disappeared pages, and directories with no code at all - just .jpgs) that I'm not convinced they have fixed the problem. I suspect that the warnings may continue to re-appear for a while. We'll keep an eye on it.

  • * White asterisk: expanded format.

  • * Blue asterisk: not mine.

  • No asterisk: it probably sucks.

Scoop's notes:

Sigh. This is some lame sci fi.

Even the best science fiction stories are often thinly-disguised morality plays about the logical extension of what we know about such topics as overpopulation, pollution, space travel, and the underside of human nature. It usually turns out to be bullshit, of course. When the future actually arrives, it is easy to see that the future world they imagined in the past was not about the future at all but about their own time. A good percentage of the time people predict pretty much the opposite of what really happens. Science fiction writers of the past, for example, once imagined a future world filled with ever more gigantic, noisy, and polluting machines. The real development of machines made them ever tinier, quieter, and more efficient.

The tendency of futurologists to be consistently incorrect is explained by a sociological (and mathematical) phenomenon called regression, which is to say that once anything gets too far from where most people want it, it gets pulled back by a centrist tendency. Take Central Manhattan, for example. If you wrote a science-fiction story in 1980 after studying the development of Times Square from 1955-1980, how would you imagine Times Square to look in 2005? The answer is basically that you would get it as wrong as possible. The fact that the area got ever more sleazy and dangerous in that first 25 year period was not a trend that could be extrapolated into the following quarter of a century. Eventually, the area got too far from what average people consider acceptable, and various social forces forced it to regress toward the mean, toward "normality." In fact, it is pretty much the same now as it was back in 1955, except it has been updated with the technology of 2005. It's all commercial and touristy and white-bread, and there are times when you almost wish the place still had the old porn theaters, street hustlers, junkies, 'tutes, and rip-off joints. Almost.

Daybreak has that same kind of problem. It was written in the early days of the AIDS scare, and it envisions our time to be sharply polarized into the plague-free ruling classes and the diseased, who are forcibly removed from society and quarantined. Rebels fight against the marginalization of the victims. The AIDS victims are treated like Jews in areas under Nazi control. For example, the heavy-handed script made the Nazi parallel by combining the yellow star and the concentration camp tattoos into one stigma - a giant P tattooed to the chests of plague victims.

Of course, none of that happened. The United States did not become more sharply divided regarding AIDS. If anything, the exact opposite happened. Medicine did its share, tolerance did its share, education did its share, prominent heterosexuals like Magic Johnson started to turn up HIV+, and we gradually became better at treating the disease, preventing it, and dealing with its stigma. HIV+ people now walk among us, live long lives after they are diagnosed, and are not universally turned into social pariahs. This film got pretty much everything as wrong as possible.

In many cases, we forgive sci-fi films their wrong-headedness if they give our imagination some exercise. I suppose the future may turn out to be nothing like the way it is pictured in Blade Runner, yet that film employs art and action and invention and a touch of poetry to bring us into its alternate world. Daybreak, in contrast, has nothing to offer in the realm of imagination. This cheap made-for-cable movie presents a future world that looks and sounds exactly like the one we live in - or lived in, way back in 1993. People wear the same 1993 clothes, and drive the same 1993 cars, and live in 1993 apartments, and use 1993 appliances. The only difference between Daybreak's world and the real world is that AIDS is far more virulent.

The damned script can't even keep its POV consistent and thoroughly developed. The rebels believe that the government is wrong to quarantine the victims, and is lying about the disease, yet we see people ravaged by the disease, and we see that the rebels fear contracting it. We know it must be contagious (the rebels admit this), and we can see its effects.  So if the government ministers are lying, what are they lying about, exactly? The script never really explores any of these questions.

So what does the film have to offer? Not much. Underneath its half-hearted sci-fi veneer is a routine kind of Romeo and Juliet love story between the rebel leader (pre-fame Cuba Gooding Jr.) and a "healthy" girl who had previously been hanging around with the modern equivalent of the Hitler Youth.

So Daybreak is sort of like West Side Story with a bad cough.
