    I've finished it. Not bad, but not as good as the more recent version. In addition to the fictional sub-plot, there was scattered made up dialogue and characters, all unnecessary as far as I can tell. 7/10

    Finished watching Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, a follow-up to Batman the Animated Series, and the first film in the DCAU (aka the DC Animated Universe). I liked it, but not as much as many other Batman fans.

    The most distinctive thing about it is that it presented a different spin of how Bruce Wayne evolved into becoming Batman.

    7.5/10

    Battle for the planet of the apes was a sad end to the "apes" this movie does the same . Both movies suffer from :
    1. Bad scripts. Both are messed up.
    Instead of a man vs dino film we get killer locust generic experiments and dino black markets
    2. So so acting. There were times I wanted a t Rex to eat everybody
    3. So so effects and a sense we done this before. Yes Dino's run amok. No they are not hunted or did I see a military response to the dinos. It would have been awesome to see a seal team vs a t Rex but alas..
    It's testament that my son Ian was more interested in his date then the movie and the twins thought it was meh. Only Chris thought it was "cool "
    A sad end
    4.5/10

    For his birthday Chris wanted to see top gun. 1st I don't like Tom cruise that being said this movie is amazing from start to finish. The air combat is spot on. I was impressed at the non stop action! Ian was was shouting "yeah cool badass!" Chris enjoyed it and asked "why could not maverick take on a flying dinosaur in Jurassic park?"
    And last I forgave cruise for his umm faith..at least for the duration of the movie.

    With Rikki and the twins absent I took the rest of the family to see light-year.
    Ian called Anna. With a stean warning on hanky panky we picked her up
    Light year was a muttled mess. With a 10 min speech on diversity and lesbian love. While I support GLBT issues it did not belong here. The movie is woke.
    A mess it don't let you know anyone unless it's important to the woke agenda. Midway Thu the movie I gave up trying to watch it. Ian dozed off Chris wanted to go over to the next theater and watch Dr strange
    We went to Dave and busters to slog off the nasty taste the movie left . Now to beat Ian's GF in wack a mole..

    Exactly! Watching light-year was like watching a woke agenda! It's like making my 14 year old go to a class on gender identity . Something the school did. The poor kid talked to me ,Rikki and Kate (who is a lesbian) before telling me "I'm a man and no one will tell me otherwise." But Disney here would have him doubt his biology and ram it's woke agenda into his psych.
    I wish I had gotten my money back
    But Dave and busters made up for it

    I felt I owed my kids a good Pixar movie. The Incredibles was an iconic movie. A masterpiece. And to see it again was amazing. We invited Anna Ian's GF who loves the movie . And who really doesn't like it? The movie is laugh a minute with superhero action a plenty. This is Pixar as it should be!
    NO CAPES!
    10/10
    As side note we went back to Dave and busters where I was "owned" again!

    Ariel Phenomenon
    Ariel Phenomenon (2022) - IMDb
    A look at the Ariel school UFO event. I'd read a couple of the mainstream descriptions but interviews of the children by Harvard psychiatrist Mack were interesting.
    They were done just after the event, he did not lead but allowed them to describe what they thought and saw.
    One child described how an alien moved:
    'Like the astronauts on the moon, although they were used to heavier gravity'.
    And the sound of the craft:
    'like a bee buzzing or electrical humming'.
    And the appearance of the craft:
    'Water poured on a surface, not like shiny metal'

    It's on Disney+, which is part of my Hulu package. I've begun watching. It'll take me a while, as usual. So far, very good special effects. I'm up to Doctor Strange's first encounter with Wanda.

    I'm also watching the dubbed version of Ip Man, which is on Tubi. Gorgeous, historic setting. (Will also take me a while.)

    Carrying on from previous discussions about modern westerns, I watched this little effort last night and can say that it wasn't too bad at all for a B-picture [aka, cheapie!] ... as I said, it was obviously low-budget despite the fact that it had several middle-old-age superstars that are only slightly 'over-the-hill for the big movie roles that they so often turned down yesterday'... ie Richard Dreyfuss and Gabriel Byrne ... It is a moderately paced movie that tried , and almost succeeded to emulate the Spaghetti-Leone-style westerns from the 1960's [but without the essential mouth twisting dubbing and the searing Morricone soundtrack.
    It benefitted from also having a bit of a genre crossover with the classic 'whodunit-movies' [a' la 1968's 5 Card Stud].
    Not a classic by any standards, but good enough to quench a couple of hours of boredom anyway. ... The only real qualm that I could envisage a classic western fan having is that there was a meagre attempt to appease the new overlords of public cognisance by means of having the two oldest 'closet-gay-cowboys' on celluloid as a peripheral-side-story... but that didn't really spoil it for me anyway. ... As I said, I would recommend it to fellow western fans and would advise to watch it with no great expectations and think that you might agree that it is worthy of a 8/10 on a otherwise spiritless gogglebox time.



    Cheers.

    Hi NSG, hope you're well matey. :Thumbsup: ... I Watched this documentary last week , i'd been looking forward to it since it was announced that it was to be made. I liked it well enough to give it a solid 7-8/10 , and if that seems a little stingy then it's because that the Ruwa Incident is one that i've been familiar [and impressed with] for years and would rank it as being the equal to the Westall case that preceded it by 28 years for a genuine authentic case of the ETH. ... so the reason for the score being no higher was that I learned nothing new. ... but had I been new to the case then, it would have probably blown my mind and received a 11/10 rating. lol

    Cheers Buddy.

    Agree, the editing was a bit all over but for me the actual words used by the children gave a lot of information.

    From the subtitle file:

    358
    00:19:06,730 --> 00:19:10,358
    We saw two of them, one was
    standing in front of the ship

    359
    00:19:10,358 --> 00:19:12,945
    and then the other one had,
    um, long hair.

    360
    00:19:13,445 --> 00:19:15,322
    But the one was standing
    in front

    361
    00:19:15,322 --> 00:19:17,115
    didn’t have any hair at all.

    362
    00:19:17,115 --> 00:19:19,200
    Show me with your hands
    how big the eyes were.

    363
    00:19:19,242 --> 00:19:21,495
    They were shaped
    like something like that.

    364
    00:19:21,495 --> 00:19:25,082
    Big head and big black eyes

    365
    00:19:25,082 --> 00:19:27,167
    and was dressed
    in a black body suit.

    366
    00:19:27,167 --> 00:19:30,003
    What did you think it was?
    I don’t know.

    367
    00:19:30,003 --> 00:19:32,297
    I just thought it was
    some type of alien

    368
    00:19:32,297 --> 00:19:34,048
    from a different planet.

    ----------------------------

    650
    00:35:14,947 --> 00:35:18,575
    And you said that, uh,
    you saw two, um,

    651
    00:35:19,243 --> 00:35:20,995
    what would you call them?
    Um...

    652
    00:35:21,037 --> 00:35:22,872
    Aliens.
    Aliens, you call them.

    653
    00:35:24,332 --> 00:35:29,170
    And, and where the aliens
    in relation to the to the craft?

    654
    00:35:29,170 --> 00:35:30,838
    I saw one over here.

    655
    00:35:30,838 --> 00:35:36,010
    And I saw one, one of these
    men by, by the spaceship.

    656
    00:35:36,010 --> 00:35:38,930
    It looks like it was guarding
    by the big spaceship.

    657
    00:35:39,513 --> 00:35:43,935
    And there was another one
    running, running in the grass.

    658
    00:35:43,935 --> 00:35:47,188
    And how did he run compared to
    the, say, a way a kid would run?

    659
    00:35:47,188 --> 00:35:50,190
    He ran normally like us
    but bouncy

    660
    00:35:50,190 --> 00:35:52,067
    as if a human
    would run on the moon.

    661
    00:35:52,943 --> 00:35:56,030
    As there were less gravity
    and it seemed light. Is that...?

    662
    00:35:56,072 --> 00:36:00,075
    Yes. But not, not as much
    as a human on the moon.

    663
    00:36:00,075 --> 00:36:03,537
    Not that extreme.
    When he ran his distance,

    664
    00:36:03,537 --> 00:36:05,790
    he stopped and he looked
    at us at for a while

    -----------------------------------

    1127
    01:00:30,712 --> 01:00:35,298
    No. And did, how did
    those thoughts come to you?

    1128
    01:00:35,298 --> 01:00:39,803
    Did they come to you
    from the craft or from...

    1129
    01:00:40,430 --> 01:00:42,015
    From the man.
    The man.

    1130
    01:00:42,807 --> 01:00:46,060
    And the man, did the man say
    those things to you?

    1131
    01:00:46,935 --> 01:00:49,105
    How did he get that
    across to you?

    1132
    01:00:50,482 --> 01:00:52,567
    Well, he never said anything.

    1133
    01:00:52,567 --> 01:00:54,985
    It’s just that
    the face, his, the eyes.

    1134
    01:00:55,987 --> 01:00:57,655
    Fungai, what do you imagine

    1135
    01:00:57,655 --> 01:00:59,282
    is his reason for
    visiting earth?

    1136
    01:01:00,533 --> 01:01:02,618
    I think it’s about something
    that’s going to happen.

    1137
    01:01:02,660 --> 01:01:03,995
    Something that’s
    going to happen?

    1138
    01:01:03,995 --> 01:01:05,747
    Yes.
    Like what?

    1139
    01:01:05,747 --> 01:01:08,165
    Um, it’s pollution
    or something.

    1140
    01:01:08,165 --> 01:01:10,083
    Pollution?
    Yes.

    1141
    01:01:10,083 --> 01:01:13,838
    And how did he get that idea
    of pollution across to you?

    1142
    01:01:13,838 --> 01:01:16,798
    Um, the way he was staring.
    The way he was staring?

    1143
    01:01:16,798 --> 01:01:18,133
    Yes.

    1144
    01:01:18,133 --> 01:01:20,387
    Somehow there was a message
    about pollution

    1145
    01:01:20,387 --> 01:01:21,762
    from the way he was staring?

    1146
    01:01:21,762 --> 01:01:23,013
    Yes.

    1147
    01:01:23,013 --> 01:01:28,937
    I think they want, um,
    people to know

    1148
    01:01:28,937 --> 01:01:32,190
    that we’re actually making harm
    on this world

    1149
    01:01:32,190 --> 01:01:34,275
    and we mustn’t get
    too technologed.

    1150
    01:01:34,900 --> 01:01:36,860
    How did that get
    communicated to you?

    1151
    01:01:36,902 --> 01:01:38,112
    I don’t know.

    1152
    01:01:38,112 --> 01:01:39,322
    But somehow it did?

    1153
    01:01:39,363 --> 01:01:41,240
    Yeah. It came through my head.

    1154
    01:01:41,240 --> 01:01:42,492
    Through your head?

    1155
    01:01:42,533 --> 01:01:44,952
    Did it talk, like,
    through words or...?

    1156
    01:01:44,952 --> 01:01:46,370
    My conscience, I think.
    Your what?

    1157
    01:01:46,370 --> 01:01:47,788
    My conscience told me.

    1158
    01:01:47,788 --> 01:01:49,207
    It came to you through your,
    your conscience told you.

    1159
    01:01:49,207 --> 01:01:50,542
    Yeah.

    1160
    01:01:50,542 --> 01:01:52,585
    You mean while you were
    in contact with the being,

    1161
    01:01:52,585 --> 01:01:53,837
    you mean or what?

    1162
    01:01:53,837 --> 01:01:56,213
    While I was... While the being
    was looking at me.

    1163
    01:01:56,213 --> 01:01:57,757
    While it was looking at you.

    1164
    01:01:58,507 --> 01:02:00,843
    It was like this lake
    of calmness in his eyes.

    1165
    01:02:01,468 --> 01:02:03,053
    I was compelled to look at him.

    1166
    01:02:03,053 --> 01:02:06,515
    It wasn’t like I,
    I wanted to look away from him.

    1167
    01:02:07,267 --> 01:02:11,353
    Time became very still
    and very bizarre.

    1168
    01:02:12,105 --> 01:02:14,190
    In my mind, technology...

    1169
    01:02:14,232 --> 01:02:17,485
    {\an3}and, and not, not good feelings
    about technology either.

    1170
    01:02:17,485 --> 01:02:20,362
    {\an3}It was like technology
    was a bad, dirty word.

    1171
    01:02:21,030 --> 01:02:24,367
    I think that he was saying
    to me, beware of the technology.

    1172
    01:02:24,367 --> 01:02:25,785
    Don’t go into it too heavy

    1173
    01:02:25,785 --> 01:02:28,162
    {\an3}because it’s, it’s not going
    to be good for you.

    1174
    01:02:29,038 --> 01:02:31,457
    {\an3}It was only when I was
    looking at him and his face

    1175
    01:02:31,498 --> 01:02:34,168
    {\an3}and his eyes that I got that.

    1176
    01:02:34,168 --> 01:02:35,587
    As soon as I looked
    away from him,

    1177
    01:02:35,587 --> 01:02:37,588
    that’s when all of reality and,

    1178
    01:02:37,588 --> 01:02:40,340
    and everything
    that was happening came back to.

    1179
    01:02:40,340 --> 01:02:44,095
    And that’s when I realized
    that something really strange

    1180
    01:02:44,137 --> 01:02:46,055
    is happening here.

    1181
    01:02:46,055 --> 01:02:47,682
    It's fascinating.

    1182
    01:02:48,307 --> 01:02:53,187
    This was imagery coming through
    from them communication,

    1183
    01:02:53,228 --> 01:02:55,898
    but it’s done through,
    right in your brain.

    1184
    01:02:58,358 --> 01:03:00,820
    You, you were saying
    that you thought that they maybe

    1185
    01:03:00,820 --> 01:03:03,907
    were trying to tell us something
    like, uh, about the future.

    1186
    01:03:03,907 --> 01:03:07,285
    Can you say more of what your
    thought is? What was it like?

    1187
    01:03:07,285 --> 01:03:11,330
    It was like on the world,
    all the trees will just go down

    1188
    01:03:11,330 --> 01:03:12,915
    and,

    1189
    01:03:13,540 --> 01:03:16,252
    and there were will be no air
    and people will be dying.

    1190
    01:03:16,835 --> 01:03:22,383
    I think that in space there’s
    no love and down here there is.

    1191
    01:03:22,425 --> 01:03:23,843
    There is love?
    Yes.

    1192
    01:03:23,843 --> 01:03:24,843
    Mm hmm.

    1193
    01:03:27,638 --> 01:03:29,807
    Is there anything
    we can do with that love,

    1194
    01:03:29,807 --> 01:03:31,642
    as far as taking care
    of the earth?

    1195
    01:03:31,642 --> 01:03:35,353
    You talked about the,
    that they, their message,

    1196
    01:03:35,353 --> 01:03:37,190
    that we don’t take
    care of the earth.

    1197
    01:03:38,148 --> 01:03:40,067
    No.
    Why not?

    1198
    01:03:40,735 --> 01:03:42,195
    Several of them talked
    about, uh,

    1199
    01:03:42,237 --> 01:03:44,988
    a message being transmitted
    through the eyes,

    1200
    01:03:44,988 --> 01:03:47,617
    that the beings were trying
    to tell us something.

    1201
    01:03:47,617 --> 01:03:50,537
    What gave that
    a certain edge of sincerity

    1202
    01:03:50,537 --> 01:03:52,622
    was they weren’t offering
    solutions,

    1203
    01:03:52,622 --> 01:03:54,165
    like we’ve got to become
    environmentally conscious

    1204
    01:03:54,165 --> 01:03:55,583
    and, you know,
    do something about the earth.

    1205
    01:03:55,583 --> 01:03:57,000
    So I’d say, "Well, what
    are we supposed to do?"

    1206
    01:03:57,000 --> 01:03:58,460
    And they would say, "Well, no.

    1207
    01:03:58,460 --> 01:04:01,088
    That’s not what they were doing,
    what they were conveying.

    1208
    01:04:01,088 --> 01:04:04,342
    They, they were simply telling
    us that this is what’s going on

    1209
    01:04:04,342 --> 01:04:06,177
    and they felt very upset
    about it."

    1210
    01:04:06,177 --> 01:04:08,930
    But it wasn’t like a,
    you know, ecological,
