XXY 2007,  Unrated)
XXY
Warning:
Cissexism
Binarism
Rape
Transphobia
Transphobic violence
Invalidation of gender because of phsyiology. The parents believe that a girl with a penis couldn't penetrate a man and still be a girl. He isn't a girl anyway, but if he was, having sex with a man or a woman with whatever body she had wouldn't change her fucking gender identity by some default. What do you think a trans person is going to have sex using? someone else's body?? Using his penis doesn't make him not a girl.
Homophobia
Misgendering
Dehumanization of intersex individuals
Pathologization of being intersex

Intersex =/= transsexual. Also wtf is "after" being trans. It doesn't stop, you fuckasses.

Parents think they can pick the sex of their FAAB (Female-assigned-at-birth) intersex but male-identidying SON.
58
The Man from Earth 2007,  Unrated)
The Man from Earth
Watch this.

"We've extended our lifespan in world that's not fit to live in."
"I am what I am becoming."

Sweet story idea. Keep Billingsly and Todd and get rid of ALL of the other secondary characters. This probably could have gotten all of my attention just as a monologue, but the addition of the other characters and the forced drama was just so tedious and interruptive. BUT. The story is so good, that you won't even care.
59
Last Day of the Dinosaurs 2010,  Unrated)
Last Day of the Dinosaurs
Transition between Trex and asteroids was soothe and sweet. Props to whoever did that. (I wrote this about 2 minutes in, and was the last thought I could concretely put together)


....O_O
I can't even go back to review this like a normal film. This is the best thing ever. EVER.
MY EYES
AND BRAIN
ARE DROOLING

Excellently massive pile of information, and a really detailed breakdown of the post-collision events, which are largely reduced to "they died", This goes into
-the stages of extinction events,
-what killed who. (heat, radiation, acid rain, physical impact, starvation, asphyxiation, reduced breeding populations)
-who survived and why
-how the impact's effects reached around the planet

Just massive scale and breadth.
