2018 In Film / Re: They Shall Not Grow Old

A gripping, beautifully rendered thread of film. The "Doco" portion at the end gives us insight to why Jackson frames this the way he does -- on a near epistolary scale. A non-historian making a film for non historians, to paraphrase, and it's effective at that, but admittedly, the man owns WWI weapons and uniforms and has access to kiwi artillery for the field recordings -- 100+ hourz of Imperial War footage! Without having an interest or eye for this sort of film/documentary, it feels exceptionally realized.

Peter Jackson gets across the priority they put into colorization and any one on this board will have a blast probably listening to the specifics on frame rate and seeing how they've been gel'd out clip by clip beyond "remastered" and toward fully-realized first-hand.

I really don't care about attractive shiny teenagers having sex. It was enough seeing the giant posters every morning for a week in the subway station.

(I do like Call Me By Your Name, though.)

A big subplot of this show is Gillian Anderson wanting to have sex with him, so Iím sensing a theme.

Hibborandum, we're going to start editing out your spam links the links to your promotional imdb list that you put in every post. You can continue posting, though, if you have something else to contribute.

Sorry about that!

I absolutely love this show. It has its faults, but itís so good at what itís good at. And Emma Mackey was a find; that girl is going places.

Channeling his Sex Therapist mother, inexperienced teen Otis decides to set up a Sex Therapy clinic at school for the hopeless students of Moordale High. Get ready for love, laughs, lube, and the best time of their lives. Netflix.

A charming show, with likable characters--and an extremely candid (and fairly graphic) look at adolescent (well, human) sexuality and our struggles with it.
