^Is it released, Semper? I've been waiting for it but haven't seen it anywhere.

Bit too far away and thanks a lot for looking. It's not on anywhere near me unfortunately. :(

If you're looking for (fairly) light relief, look no further. Boasting (probably) the most entertaining car chase in cinema history, it is 'extra ordinary.'

Really? I like car chases almost as much as I hate, hate, cars. You're telling me this is going to top French Connection and the Terminator (1986) scene in the parking lots with the side-cannons?

Ditto on the hate cars / love car chases sentiment, but those movies still can't beat Ronin:

Yes. By a margin. (And please do remember my wording, it was very precise.)

WOW. I'm very impressed. Hipsters be damned, this was visually exciting at a level I haven't experienced in quite a while. Loved it. Interesting contrast between this and The Lighthouse, both discussing the same subject among other things.

Often annoying but sometimes funny, I guess.

...

Did we do Parasite yet?

Pieczeinik on Parasite:
“It was a movie that was decided to be Best Film, Best Director, Best Screenplay, blah, blah, blah… It’s a good film. Not great. The point isn’t that. The point is that Parasite highlights what’s been going on in the Democratic Party for the last couple of months...

This is rather David Icke-ian, also plays into the "Satanic Agenda" type of mind programming, but I thought it is certainly worth a viewing. Does anyone tell or know truth anymore? Funny how they say this stuff started changing about 6000 years ago, which is about as old as early-Judaic, Zoroastrian, or Abrahamic religions were born. Fear your God. Anyone who can create something as ruthless as this society certainly had a screw loose. Programming through the use of fear, violence, and terror, best/worst control mechanisms ever!


This seems to be somewhat pirated by the way. Link may disappear after a while.

*warning* there's some of that Qanon, Trump is going to expose the deep state bullshit in here.

Yes. Me. Always. If you doubt that then you're evil incarnate.

Okay, I may be wrong now and then.

Nobody told me Jim Jarmusch made a Zombie flick! And it's good...
