    Kidnapped for Christ, documentary about a place in the Dominican Republic where American kids are sent to be straightened out by cruel bible-thumpers.

    Glad I'm not under 18 and subject to being sent to such a place on somebody's whim.

    About some nuns who are sent to start a mission in the Himalayas, and the problems between them.

    10 Cloverfield Lane Thought this was mis-titled until the end.

    My Cousin Rachel, adaptation of Daphne Du Maurier novel. Good gothic romance mystery with Richard Burton(his Hollywood debut) and Olivia de Havilland. Apparently they didn't get along during filming.

    Slight spoiler on the movie quality.

    ''the third one is always the worst'' In this case, I couldn't agree more.

    It was okay I guess. Ewan Mcgregor was awesome though. Plus, now I know why Obi-Wan's love interest in The Clone Wars was named Satine. Clever writing from the creators.

    Wolf Creek 2 went overboard on effects, the original was scary though.

    I don't know why I watched the entire film but I saw The D Train on Showtime two nights ago. Easily the worst Jack Black film ever.

    I started to watch Manglehorn with Al Pacino in the lead today. So bad I shut it down after 30 minutes.

    So pseudo-intellectual Woody is better than the pseudo-intellectual behind him?

    The director comes forward to scold the man for not understanding his oblique work. How different from, say, STEM, authors there try to make their meanings as clear as possible, and if the meaning is misunderstood, they don't scold, but try to fix their books so that it can be understood by more people.

    Why such a difference between STEM and the humanities? Because one has substance and the other is all smoke and shadows.

    If these artsy movies really do tell the 'meaning of life', why all the obscurantism? I think it's a way to seem deep, a way to impress their dates, perhaps?

    Spectre - some critics didn't like it much but I thought it was more classic old school Bond which I enjoyed.

    Deadpool - I'll need to watch this again uninterrupted.

    The Keeping Room (2015). With the Civil War as a backdrop the film tells the story of what happens when Augusta(Brit Marling),her younger sister and a female slave holding out at a farmhouse 'meet' two soldiers.

    Nell (1994) - Jodie Foster, Liam Neeson.

    Interesting movie about a girl brought up in the mountains by her mother. She has never interacted with anyone else. A doctor discovers her when her mother dies.

    The Suspect (1944) - Interesting short (80 min) movie with Charles Laughton.

    edit : after watching this movie one can finally understand how pretty young women can fall for people of Poobian dimensions ;)
