"When We Rise" is the best I've seen in a long time. I saw it in a theater but ABC TV will broadcast it starting Monday at 9pm.

Also by Dustin Lance Black, I would recommend 8: The Mormon Proposition.

Gravity

Bad bad movie... If you took unknown actors that movie would be a half star.

True, it was not a great movie, but I enjoyed it anyway. Wasn't looking for anything profound in it.

Clooney and Bollacks chemistry pulled the movie off. That's why I said what I said about no name actors.

Yes, I enjoyed it. And I can speak German fairly well, so that was a fun part about it too.

I watched Hacksaw Ridge last weekend, very moving and powerful, also lots of gore. The overarching story about a man who refused to abandon his convictions in the face of peer pressure, authority pressure, and even the direct threat of being attacked by the enemy made a powerful point. The fact that it's also a true story was also thought provoking.

I saw The Handmaiden last night, and cannot say it was very good:

It kept my interest with some cool plot twists, but ultimately didn't feel like a great use of time.

Saw "Hidden Figures" and while this is a terrible movie title combined with terrible promotion, the movie itself was very very good. I never knew about the issues early NASA had to deal with in putting a man into orbit and then bringing him back. Lots of science and math made my inner nerd rejoice, and there was drama enough for my wife to enjoy it thoroughly as well. Bit of a harsh depiction of 1960s segregation and perhaps well deserved. However, this made for a startling contrast between racism then and whatever they're calling racism today. We don't got no freaking racism now if that's what it actually was.
Kevin Costner put in a great performance and so did Octavia Spencer and the rest of the cast. Good movie and very uplifting! Made me proud to be an American.

Day Watch and Night Watch a Russian two part movie about Good and Evil "The Others" and their millennia long truce.
The Day Watchers, police the Night Watchers.

After Shock - a movie about the aftermath of an Earth Quake in China in the 70's that separated a family for 3 decades.

Any movie where the Hero lives in the end, and not everybody dies. Any move where Good triumphs in the end.
Any movie that get through 120 minutes without showing the audience a dick going in someone's butt or the narrative that it will.
Any movie that makes me feel good about humanity, and is pro Traditional values.

Any movie that is not well grounded in Liberal filth.

It's getting harder and harder to meet that criteria though. My TV has been ripped off the wall and thrown in the shit can. I haven't been to a theater in over 10 years.
The only TV I watch is when I'm in bed and want to catch a little TV before I go to sleep. More often than not, I fall a sleep flipping though Netflix menu.
They are really fucking pissed that Trump won. They are shoving every movie ever made by every deviant liberal fuck they can find. Filth and garbage marathon viewing is all you'll find on Netflix these days. So it's getting harder and harder to find good movies.
I'm giving it only about 2 or 3 more months, then I'm terminating Netflix for good, and giving up on TV for good.

"Lion" was pretty good, about Indian boy who gets lost at age 5, adopted by Australians, and manages to find his home village and biological family at age 30 or so via Google maps. Kind of an ad for the Google in some ways. The complete absence of laptop product placement by Apple makes me think Google probably had a hand in funding the movie.

I studied image compression for a while, and learned that movies with lots of exploding orange fireballs are harder to compress, because there is simply more visual detail in the movie.

I totally agree with you here. Have not owned a TV or had cable service for at least 10 years and been very happy without it. It's kind of bizarre when I see commercials now. Maybe in an airport or a bar. I really don't miss them at all.

Sweet Bean had a huge dollop of sentimentality, but I rather like that kind of slow paced Japanese film. Beautifully filmed as well.

The movie is yet another anti-white polemic which fictionalizes situations to make racism seem worse than it was. If all white people are supposed to feel bad about some racists, are all black people supposed to feel bad about some extremely violent black people? If it's wrong to judge all blacks based on the actions of some, why is it right to judge all whites based on the actions of some?

Many blacks were opposed to the space program:

Well sure, if that's what the deal is. However I surely don't feel bad about white racists from 65 years ago. That was three generations back, and at least two removed from my own (for the adults then). I literally have had nothing to do with racism and feel that I am blameless in that regard. For Leftists to ask me to feel guilty about (someone else's) great grandparents keeping blacks segregated is just bizarre. I might as well feel guilty that my great great uncle killed his brother in a duel over a woman (actually happened!) It's just meaningless to me, and I think to most people.
This is just one reason why Leftists always lose.

I have a TV in my bedroom, there's one in the living room my wife mostly watches Novelas on. My kids have a TV in their rooms but they are hardly never home anymore.
I ditched the TV that was in my study/office/jamroom/mancave where I spend a good 80% of my waking time at home.
We ditched cable in all of the house, we have Netflix and Hulu, though I've gotten the green light from everyone in the house that nobody watches Netflix anymore and they only have one star propaganda crap. I still haven't brought myself to cut the service, I keep hopping Hastigs will see how SJW Executivism can kill a company. And go back to releasing quality Asain movies to supplement their own titles. These Propaganda movies and shoving Jihad John down our throats with the message it aint them it's Us, got old 3 years ago when they started pulling this shit. It's even older now.

I'll probably cut them this month. They do bring it up more often now, "When are you cutting Netflix?"

Of course, it's not the color that matters. What matters is that the scene changes so much. Video compression is mostly motion vectors and an explosion doesn't just move, it changes colors and brightness while moving. That makes repeating pixels from one frame to another less of an option.
