Captain America: Civil War

IMHO, the best marvel movie other than possibly Iron Man 1.  There are several good reviews, so I won't go into it again. ;D

Very creepy low-budget indie horror flick.  Recommended if you like that kind of thing.

The editing in that flick was very cool.  When the genius takes the pills.. those scenes reminded me of Roberto Benigni in Johnny Stecchino.  Every time he mentioned his gangster rival he did this sequence where he slapped his legs and wiped his shoes.  It just seems to have the same rhythm to it.  Pi is one of the coolest.  :Thmbsup:

Movies I've seen lately - 1 Giant Leap: What About Me?
« Reply #656 on: May 22, 2016, 12:58:36 PM »
1 Giant Leap: What About Me?
I was talking with an ex-convict a while back, a Maori guy whom I occasionally met when we'd make a regular stop-off for a brief picnic at a park on our return from the "farmers' market" every Sunday. I would often be tucking into bananas and other fruit that we had bought, and would share with him. We'd usually discuss nothing in particular. One time though he mentioned this film and its music, and he said it was inspirational and that it had made him see life in a different way, and so I made a note of it. I got around to searching it up on the web tonight and found it and watched it online. It was a kind of documentary and probably a bit "once over lightly", but nevertheless I thought it well worth my watching, in retrospect. It reminded me of some philosophies - things I had already known, but had forgotten to think about lately - and it showed me some new aspects about these things, through the medium of music and video. Shades of the Deep Forest music and Paul Simon's work (Graceland) with S. African musicians. It was cleverly made, but maybe somewhat cynically commercial.

Director: Jamie Catto & Duncan Bridgeman | Producer: Jamie Catto & Duncan Bridgeman
Genre: Documentary | Produced In: 2008 | Story Teller's Country: United Kingdom
Tags:  Global, Health, Relationships, Spiritual Awareness

Synopsis: Through music and film, "1 Giant Leap" explores the universal complexities of human nature. Jamie Catto (Faithless co-founder) and Duncan Bridgeman set out on their journey recording musical jewels and words of wisdom with the cream of the world’s thinkers, writers and entertainers along the way. The duo traveled to the farthest corners of the planet, to ensure immense cultural diversity in this time capsule of humanity at its most inspirational.

I enjoyed this a lot -
coming of age in the eighties helped; having lived a year in Dublin in the mid-eighties helped; liking the music helped.
But none of the above necessary I'd say ;-)

I always liked the coming of age genre.  Old English flicks with Rita Tushingham, Asian flicks such as All About Lilly Chow Chow, Drew Barrymoore's Far From Home, etc..

Life is the same old same old, but it is new to those just old enough to experience its joys and frustrations for the first time.  :)

I was surprised (nicely) by Zootopia, and even though the Secret Life of Pets was coming, I figured that Zootopia had it beat.  I was wrong.

Zootopia is a story about anthropomorphic animals in a city environment.  The Secret Life of Pets is about animals.  The latter is just funnier and more engaging, IMO.

Both are good and recommended, however.

(Nevermind.  For some reason I posted here instead of the books thread.  Must be a caffeine deficiency.  :)   )

Was that meant for this thread?

I had a rather unique experience the other night, when I happened to find what I thought to be a perfectly 'normal' youtube copy of '13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi'; here. As the movie progressed, I discovered it had been mirror-reversed, which was fine with me. Then it dawned on me that everyone sounded hyper. The effect was so pronounced and yet at the same time so subtle, that it took me perhaps half the movie, maybe more, listening to everyone talk like caffeine addicts, to finally realize the film's playback had been sped up just a little bit. The men did not quite sound like they had inhaled helium, but the effect was eerily suggestive of it. The weird thing about it is, the speed-up is just enough so you notice it on a subliminal level, yet still close enough to normal speed as to fool your brain into accepting it as 'natural'.
"This is the best bad idea we have, sir. By far." (cf. 'Argo'.)

@Deozaan For some reason I can't get rid of multiple quotes if I quote your post.  So I will just answer:

Yes. I modified the post on July 22 to reflect as much.  Unfortunately there's no "delete post" button to just remove it.

Anyway, the book The Dark Fields has been renamed to "Limitless" to boost book sales.  Evidently the movie got better box office than expected.  So now I can just use "Limitless" and I'm covered for either thread.  :)
