An examination of many things including ethics & developmental psychology. Well done by Cliff Roberts as well as Claire Bloom from The Illustrated Man by Bradbury & original Clash Of The Titans.

Flowers for Algernon (2000)
Birdsforme 4 points yesterday. (Contains Spoilers)

This film was very well made for a tv film. The points made were that there are worse things than lack of intelligence; a higher intelligence does not create emotional maturity; for scientific advancement ethics are often put aside; and its really not very smart to be a bully. Albino mice were created in the 1920s and are all descendants of lab mice.
Many touching scenes in this film along with some tear jerking moments. Well worth the watch.

This is one of the films my mom insisted I watch when she thought I was old enough to get the messages within. There are worse ways to parent a child.

Thanks for the write up. Would never have seen this, otherwise. The fact that Ravi Shankar did most of the music makes this an undiscovered gem.

Doctor Who (2023)
SoakedWeasel 3 points 1 hour ago.

This is unrecognizable as Dr Who, apparently the Doctor is now a coward in every episode.
What is it with the unbearable musical numbers in every episode? I cannot watch any more, it’s just too painful. Musical numbers are not new and radical, they have been around for an awfully long time. They are just so jarring, out of place and just bad.

For the first time in my life, I am not excited to watch Dr Who. I feel like I have lost a friend and a part of my identity. Congratulations BBC / Disney, you have lost a lifelong mega fan.

Humane (2024)
Hans Zarkov 2 points 12 hours ago.

My suspension of disbelief does about as well as the old Tacoma Narrows suspension bridge did when the idea of controlled euthanasia of a large segment of the population is the major plot point - but only because of the “controlled” part. The reality is the wars that would be fought over the dwindling resources and/or the massacre of ecological refugees fleeing to places where it’s not as badly devastated is our version of population reduction. Or if it’s internal within a country, more like Soylent Green than The Road Warrior.

It’s more of a nitpick than showstopper for me though - some of my favorite SF stories are the ones where the authors come up with unique post-apocalyptic societies (not including “young adult” orientated stories where a single teenager changes the entire world order by being plucky and self-confident).

Wasn’t there a big kerfuffle in 1940 about a bunch of Brits wanting to surrender?

Not a surrender as such, but a negotiated peace settlement. If Halifax had succeeded Chamberlain instead of Churchill, things very likely would have gone in that direction.

The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare (2024)
grasshopper rex 1 points 19 hours ago*.

I have little doubt that there were Nazi sympathizers throughout the war that would have eagerly surrendered to Germany, but given that the British Union of Fascists and National Socialists was proscribed by the British government following the outbreak of war and disbanded soon after, it seems unlikely that there would be many willing to voice those opinions publicly.

Euringer 2 points 18 hours ago.

That is definitely a piece to the puzzle that is often ignored in basic modern history, but sometimes given a large presence in modern media, like how in America we had a few million card carrying fascists opposed to war with Germany on obvious grounds - doesn’t necessarily mean our government agreed with those people.

Oh God, really? I genuinely thought there was another episode, it’s just a place holder until June 13. We have all held our breaths to see Penelope finally get some (love) and this is where they pause? What a vicious way to keep everyone tethered to the show. Damnnnnn…

It is rated R for sexual content, frontal nudity, so I wouldn’t let kids watch this one. This movie reminds me of Clan of the Cave Bear although the plot is different. I’m not impressed with it. I wouldn’t watch it again and I don’t know what to say about watching it all the way through except once you see it, it’s kinda hard not to stop seeing it. However, it’s original and definitely different.

Aah fair enough, and it’s not semantics as it would have absolutely mattered if the people in the movie were telling him to surrender outright as opposed to a negociated peace treaty.

Aside from being a great director, what I like about Guy Richie’s classics are the interesting and complicated characters. Instead, this movie is yet another cartoonish WWII good vs evil story with one dimensional characters.

Just a week after it was reported that Hiroyuki Sanada would return for another Shōgun season, FX and Hulu announced they are developing two new seasons of the acclaimed drama.
In an announcement on Thursday, FX revealed that it would be teaming up with the estate of author James Clavell — who wrote the original Shōgun novel in 1975 — to extend the story into two additional seasons. Shogun Seasons 2 and 3 are both currently in development, and a writers room is being assembled. Woohoo!

Was really enjoying them film for the ‘Inglorious Bastards Vibe’ right up until the scene where apparently all senior military commanders and civil servants were telling church hill to surrender to Hitler ‘because he has more troops and bombs’. My grandfather was a fighter + bomber pilot, who also taught a lot those young pilots who died in the Battle of Britain when an monstrously huge Luftwaffe got bitch slapped by much much smaller RAF. Artistic licence is one thing but that’s an utter insult. No Brit during WWII would EVER say to surrender especially the high brass.

Book is such a pointless ancillary character now that’s just shoehorned into every episode. No reason to be in it until suddenly ‘O there just happens to be a familial kind of relationship with one of the people they’re chasing’. ‘Oh this place just happens to have an artefact from their world’. His only function is to be the Capts love interest so we can have those lovely long story detracting conversations about feelings and tense pauses. The show seems solely focused on them as the only people who ever undertake away missions. At least all other series mixed it up more with who was the episodes main charcaters.

ct451 1 points 20 hours ago.

I think by this point the writers know the series is cancelled so they grab whatever character is easiest and go. They tried a bit of character development with some of the crew but there’s no point really.

Piglet 1 points 19 hours ago.

Starts next month! My how far Kevin Costner has come! In the movie The Big Chill, only his hands made it on screen. He was a bit green in the movie No Way Out, but many people took note of this fine-looking male actor. He soon learned and even in the 90’s his acting was still a bit green, and I sometimes think it’s because he really didn’t want to be in the movie, so his acting was so good.

Hans Zarkov 1 points 13 hours ago.

I’ve been reading Tarot cards - the deck created by Alastair Crowley, as it happens - for over 30 years now and no one’s ever warned me about “the sacred rule of Tarot”, and the worst evil I’ve ever summoned was something that made my date pass out from drinking too much just before we slept together, once. Mildly annoying, but hardly unspeakable. ;) hehe

That said, I’m looking forward to a non-cam version. There haven’t been enough escapist “creature feature” type horror movies that don’t try and teach a very heavy-handed lesson. Abigail sort of fits the bill, but I’d rather have another Night at Willy’s (or whatever it was called, the Nick Cage vs. animatronic weasel movie), Alien, or Chucky movie, or maybe that great GEICO “when you’re in a horror movie you make stupid decisions” commercial made into a movie. That’d be fun. :)
