    Season 4 of The League hit Netflix today, just in time for football season.

    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.
