    This movie was great. I'm short on specifics, because I watched it a few months ago. But this is my favorite crime/action movie of recent years.

    Not Netflix, but The Perfect Human Diet is free on Amazon if you have Prime. If you're even remotely interested in the reason people eat paleo, think the diet is stupid*, or are interested in trying but aren't sure it's a good idea, this is a great watch.

    *I still watch vegetarian documentaries because apparently I like raising my blood pressure.

    Theirs is the Glory. This is a British movie from 1946 about the Arnhem portion of Operation Market-Garden (of A Bridge Too Far fame).

    The unique part about this is that there are no actors or sets. It's a reenactment of Market-Garden using actual footage, or soldiers who took part in the battle on the actual sites where it happened.

    I highly recommend it if you're into military history.

    ETA: the German equipment is also authentic, too. If there's another WW2 movie out there that uses real Panther tanks, I'm not aware of it.

    I've been watching Air Disasters on Netflix Instant lately and I've been impressed with its devotion to showing the deductive reasoning process aviation incident investigators use, rather than just making a sensationalist show exploiting plane crashes.

    I just finished the "Gimli Glider" episode, and I defy anybody to watch that and tell me the pilot, Bob Pearson, doesn't have balls the size of Death Stars.

    If you have the ability to read subtitles, please watch The Hunt. It stars the guy who played the villain in Casino Royale.

    I watched it. It’s just...good? The graphics are not good but you can get over it after a while.
    I love this book so much, and I feel like every attempt to make a movie is an overcompensation. “See, it’s not just about bunnies! It’s DARK!” But this one went too far into angry territory, and didn’t have to. The book really isn’t that dark...

    I just finished watching it with Jungle Julia.
    Meh. We probably would have liked it more if we'd read the book.
    I remember going to the library in middle school, and pulling this off the shelf because it carried a lot of points in our school reading program.
    My teacher took one look at my choice and said "Bandit, you are going to hate that book," so I put it back.

    I thought somebody had posted this here already, but I guess not Triple Frontier was pretty good. The cast was outstanding and overall, it's well made. There were a few things in the writing that didn't seem quite right. But, it's an enjoyable watch.

    There’s a new anthology series called “Love, Death, and Robots.” It’s a collection of shorts that are like Black Mirror for the Adult Swim crowd. The first one was good. The second one was goofy.

    Just finished watching it... it wasn't bad, but I was kind of expecting better... especially for a movie that was that long. I'd give it about a 7 or so. Not upset that I watched it, but am not going to watch it again. One weird thing for me was the audio engineering... I don't think it was my setup, but the vocal tracks were really hard to follow in a bunch of places. Was watching it on a proper 5.1 so it shouldn't have been a "centre channel missing" thing, and most other movies don't have that issue. Oh well.

    Yeah, I'm into that next. I love that kind of stuff (still have every Heavy Metal mag ever published) and it looks like it could be interesting.

    @Rush-O-Matic - the first short has boobs in it. I await your 10/10 review.

    There's also some bush in one of the middle episodes, too. I was pleasantly surprised by that.

    My only complaint is that all of the episodes are really short (about 10 minutes each; one episode about sentient yogurt - yes, you read that right - was only five minutes long.).

    On the plus side, you can watch all of them in one sitting.

    The Dirt

    Motley Crüe movie based on the book by Nikki Sixx (I think?). Anyway, I loved it. It’s not winning an Oscar, but I was pretty entertained even if the second half drifted into Lifetime movie territory. Acting was pretty on point and MGK did a great job as Tommy Lee and Ramsay Bolton as Mick Mars. Surprised that it’s getting 44% on RT, but looking at the reviews, it seems like it’s reviewed through the lens of toxic masculinity or whatever. It was pretty fun.

    8.5 / 10
