Relaxing Sand Castle And ocean waves, with wave sounds 31m 17s
I have enjoyed -and still do- looping the playback and find it to be a great stress reliever both to watch and to just listen and fall asleep to.

Tracks (2013 film) & book of same title by Robyn Davidson.
In 1977, Robyn Davidson treks solo from Alice Springs across 2,700 kilometres (1,700 miles) of Australian deserts to the Indian Ocean with her dog and four camels. National Geographic photographer Rick Smolan documents her journey. The more she seeks to avoid publicity, the more the curiosity seekers try to hunt her down in awestruck admiration.
Before starting, she looks up a camel rancher and does volunteer work as his 'go-fer' in order to learn the ropes. He cheats her, but a second rancher helps her with four camels, including a mother cow and her half-grown calf. When the poor baby collapses due to tender footsies from the hot Australian desert, the ever-resourceful Robyn compassionately fashions stockings for him and gets him back on his feet. "Protect your camels from rogue males," the rancher had warned her, and given her a carbine. Vivid in my memory is the sight of three rogue male camels approaching in the distance, hell-bent on killing her tame males and baby and raping her cow, as Robyn chambers the first slug into her carbine and prepares to do battle.

For music recommendations, I think the thread Recommend some music videos to me! would be a more appropriate place. :Thmbsup:

Excerpt with David Warner and Malcolm McDowell dialogue in Time after Time (1979) 3m 57s
The film presents a story in which British author H. G. Wells uses his time machine to pursue Jack the Ripper -played to perfection by David Warner- into the 20th century.
"
Spoiler
In this 'cut' (no pun intended), Jack the Ripper tells off utopian idealistic H. G. Wells, who says to Jack, 'We don't belong here (in the violence-surfeited future)", "On the contrary, Herbert...The world has caught up with me, and surpassed me.''

Just after seeing Ford v Ferarri
I prefer the name used here "Le Mans 66". Ford v Ferarri sounds banal to me... but it seems that was part of the problem with Ford at the time, they were considered boring. FWIW that's pretty much the way I think of Ford now, but you dont see a whole lot of their cars here, so I guess I shouldn't really judge.
Worth watching in the cinema for the racing. Well made -- I enjoyed it.

Saw Joker last weekend and... meh. The character was not well-developed, just his history of abuse was slowly revealed while he almost constantly smoked throughout the movie. I don't remember the Joker being a smoker in the illustrated books I have. The last 15-20 minutes is the relevant part of the story. Heath Ledger still owns that character for originality.

And Then There Were None (1945) - I consider this to be the best live action version of Agatha Christie's magnificent murder mystery. Endearing and intriguing all-star cast. Digitally colorized.

Two ways that I find such classics are either by looking up in Wikipedia what other films a favorite star has appeared in, or by checking what other films the YouTube user has also posted.

With Wikipedia, I often find in doing so, that I've fallen deeply in favor of the amalgamation of both the big screen charms of the fictional character, and the theatrical gifts of the real-life film star, rather than just the one or the other only.
