Even better than YouTube or Vimeo, if you have access to Netflix, The Island (Ostrov) is currently available there.  Beautiful cinematography and excellent acting;  In a remote and very poor monastery on the seacoast, a WWII coward and traitor redeems himself by living the life of a holy fool who resists the adulation of the crowds and torments the monks with his antics.  Russian language with subtitles.

I liked this movie very much.

And oc.net continues to wallow in garbage. Achronos really elevated this thread to something to actually check.

I'll put my movie recommendations against Achronos's any day. But I think we did share some in common.

I watched Hecules and Noah.  The latter sucked.

The Island (Ostrov) is currently available there.

We've got it on DVD (in Europe). Words fail to describe this film (i.e. truly great).

On the authority of our local archpriest, I can also recommend this TV movie, if you can find it in a language you can understand:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0273295/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

I would call it a reworking of Camus' The Fall.

The Grand Budapest Hotel, was that mentioned? An enjoyable flick.
Interesting author; a German who wrote of a possibly civilized Europe in the 20th Century, around Adolph's time and contrary to that whole schmere

The Act of Killing

Possibly the most important film I've seen in a year or two.

I posted a recommendation for this one a while back, maybe in the Documentaries thread.

Incredible film. Amazing that this was even allowed to be made. Easily the most disturbing and emotionally draining movie or doc that I've ever seen. But as you rightly said, extremely important.

War Horse is premiering tonight on TV. My son has been begging to see it from the first glimpse of the trailer he got. It's past his bedtime, so he won't be watching tonight, but it's being recorded and we'll all sit through it probably tomorrow.

The first half hour is boring but then it picks up, so don't be instantly discouraged when you watch it.

Saw Big Hero 6 the other day. Now, I want my own Baymax! I wouldn't be surprised if the Japanese haven't already built a robot that can do most of those things.

I'm not going to be posting as much on OC.Net as before. I might stop in once in a while though. But I've come to realize that real life is more important.

So I've never been a big fan of the Terminator series (except, kinda, slightly, a little bit, partly #2), but maybe I'll try to catch Terminator Genisys on Netflix if it ever ends up there.

The Terminator - Old Testament, Israel (Sarah Connor) is persecuted and harassed by evil people (Terminator) who are opposed by Judges and Prophets (Reece)
Terminator II - New Testament, A savior sacrifices himself for the future of mankind.
Terminator III - The Koran, I got nothing, but a lot of people liked it.
Terminator Salvation - The Book of Mormon, we're pretty much just dealing with fan fiction now.

The Godfather trilogy lies waiting for a marathon Saturday.

Watched the other day Tai Chi 0 and Tai Chi Hero, a Chinese steampunk kung fu action movie with an alternative origin for the Chen style of Tai Chi.

I also watched Keanu Reeves' Man of Tai Chi. And it's interesting to see how it is a Western movie with a Christian storyline despite the kung fu and Chinese content.
Many Energies, 3 Persons, 2 Natures, 1 God, 1 Church, 1 Baptism, and 1 Cup. The Son begotten only from the Father, the Spirit proceeding only from the Father, Each glorifying the Other. The Son sends the Spirit, the Spirit Reveals the Son, the Father is seen in the Son. The Spirit spoke through the Prophets and Fathers and does so even today.

In spite of Orthonorm AND his scary welfare symbol, we saw Interstellar.
For a PG 13 movie I was surprised at the language! I gather the rules changed and now every word is allowed at least once and some twice. To bad.
A bit long in parts and whole, paying homage to 2001: A Space Odyssey, and trying to be everything-to-everybody-from the liberal Hollywood set, it was enjoyable.
The music was to loud and overrode the dialogue, so strain and pay attention at times, if you see it. It probably won't show as well on the small screen, even a 60" one.
I can understand others saying "friends won't let friends see Interstellar" but we're old and don't care.

Orthonorm is usually a good judge of what not to watch. He's not as discriminating as I am, but he's better than most.

I rather liked the music. Been listening to the soundtrack few weeks now from Spotify. The movie itself was interesting and enjoyable. Not anything ground-breaking but definitely  something that people who like scifi, ecological and apocalyptic themes should probably see unless you are a movie hipster who only watches some silent films from the 1700s or something.
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.

5 Centimeters Per Second by Makoto Shinkai

www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5eMYyCYwVg

An anime about true love found and lost for banal reasons.

Women will cry and men will sweat from their eyes.

Quote
In his new animation, “Byosoku 5 Centimeters (Speed of 5 Centimeters per Second),” Makoto Shinkai makes his own vision of an animated paradise entirely from the materials of the every day: trains, birds, snowflakes, sky — and three teenagers with no magical powers whatsoever, only the common experiences of longing, love and loss.
(...)
In “Byosoku,” his imagination may not leap to Miyazaki’s strange and wonderful heights, but he is better (blasphemy!) at piercing the veil of the everyday to reveal a poignant, evanescent beauty most of us notice only in rare moments. Or maybe not so rare if you are, like Shinkai’s three heroes, a sensitive adolescent in love.

So this GBF movie sanctions, promotes and promulgates homosexuality?
I trust "educators" can find another movie that can display virtues other than the vice of lust misplaced.

Agree or disagree with it, it presents very real problems that LGBT students have in high school and their high school experiences and how they feel they they are treated, and this background knowlege can, and is, very helpful for teachers.

You are right; there is nothing to agree or disagree as it simply is what it is, a movie that is out here.
The fact that there is such a movie at my age is disheartening and has me glad that the end of sin for me is near.
We are simply and totally sexual creatures yet there is a vocal active minority, and their foolish minions, that are foisting The Great Lie upon our young people but such movies not only help, but makes that lie "OK".

The 'feelings' of our young people, especially Jr and Sr. high schoolers are so mercurial and dramatic AND THEN to normalize homosexuality is an abomination.  As a boomer from the '50's and '60s I do recall thinking we invented sex, which was really lust, and old folks were clueless....ah the hubris of youth! And now that lust has muddied the waters further and perverted it even more so! This is a legacy from hell.
Disheartening and sad, I tell you.

The Hobbit was bit of a disappointment. I mean, I was guessing that there would be a few of those "phew, that was close" moments but the whole movie was more like "that escalated quicly." Somebody please stop Peter Jackson from making any more movies. Maybe a holiday would cure him from seeing all things in three.

Ugh, I haven't seen it yet, but I was hoping beyond hope that the final would be substantially better than the first two.  I will of course go see it, but I was wishing it would redeem the trilogy.  :-\
God bless!

Exodus, just saw it....BORING with a dialogue built for a 4th grader.
The continuity is absent and the spin is dizzy enough to stop a whrlygig.
Although it was a lousy movie, worthy only for a small screen when one is tired of Law and Order, there is a dangerous part. The subtext tells the "revolutionaries" of today that the discomfort/disruption of the middle class is a way to change things at the top.
Also if I recall the Egyptian movie chariots didn't exist, nor the horse styrups, in 1300BC.
There were no military style excersises as portrayed back in that day.
Oh, and if God is a 12 year old boy then the one that thought that up is probably a pederast.
