Family relocates to Kenya to escape Nazis. Wife hates "living away from civilized society". Soon after, husband is interned, wife stops clinging to the preservation of the life she knew in Germany, and begins to farm, grows to see Africa as her home. The daughter likewise goes through a cultural conflict, having now grown up in Africa, when sent away to a Catholic and British boarding school. Throughout, the father/husband feels deprived of his usefulness to his family as his law education is of no use in very rural Africa.

The Discovery of Heaven
An hour and a half in, I suddenly remember that one of those guys is an angel pretending to be a human and have to restart the whole thing.

Oh wait no, it's their KID. Fry and Wise are superb, but idk about this plot of the angels on earth trying to regain ownership of the 10 commandment stones. It feels very un-integrated and unnecessary. This movie should have just been only about their fraternal cosmic twin bromance.

Planet of the Apes
This movie is continually and unfunnily making self-referential jokes, making tongue-in-cheek references to the titles of random other popular science fiction stories, and otherwise pretending that it's already in our good favour and not making any effort. It only serves to amplify and illuminate how bad it is.

And shame on any movie that employs Paul Giamatti.

I gave it 2.5 stars, but I want to watch it again cause I'm about 100 years older and kind of grok Philip K Dick now. ! saw this when ! was like, 13 or 14.

Nope.. still not that great, but now it reminds me of The Skin I Live In (2011).

Mreh. Romeo and Juliet between troublemaking rich white girl and academically-inclined son of poor Mexican immigrants. Nunez is good. It's main selling point is the near-constant loose breast shots that are featured in every Kirsten Dunst movie.

Srs nonsense. Very avant garde, in the sense that you could honestly say to someone, "hey, want to see a film that makes absolutely no sense", and have them not be even slightly let down by the calibre of absolute.

Some weird stuff happens, and deliberate attempts are made to imitate (so as to be mistaken for) a film made in the 1960s. But this is way too drawn out, and content sense is way too low, to make me not annoyed. It's almost arrogant to use up that much time and not say anything except an esoteric homage to Dadism and pure cinema. Film equipment should be kept away from people libel to make these sorts of things.

Dear Avant Gardists
Sometimes, symbols, in keeping with their definition, represent things.

The Egyptian Atlantis myth via Plato from the Discovery Channel.

Okay... I thought the name Atlantis was a modern media invention, and has nothing to do with it's geographical placement, AND specifically that it wasn't in the Atlantic at all. Or are they just choosing to pretend not to know that part of the myth's development.

They're just picking an choosing historical facts to make up their own fictitious narrative. Shame on you.

Also, boring.
