    Was reminded of this show and might rewatch it in the future. Sort of a crime thriller comedy about reading people's microexpressions.

    I really liked that show too, I was disappointed it got cancelled so soon. It set me on a brief path of learning about body language, I got a couple easy to read books on the topic. Its kind of amazing how much we communicate subconsciously through our body.

    I liked this documentary on Netflix. It tells the story of a couple free divers and builds to a suspenseful story. I have a bit of a fascination with the topic.

    It really is amazing. I remember watching it back when I was interested in biofeedback. And biofeedback was an interesting topic because of free divers I'd seen on a discovery channel show or something similar. They were talking about moderating their heart beat to use less oxygen. Haven't seen the Netflix doc though, thanks for the recommendation.

    I binged on the Netflix miniseries, PainKiller. It's about Oxycontin and Purdue Pharma.

    5 stars

    Sobering.

  • Pretty Baby: The Brooke Shields Story.

    Although I guess it qualifies more as a documentary.

    Pretty disturbing stuff in some parts.

  • Bodies (time travel murder mystery ) on Netflix

    This is coming out in cinemas here on the 26th of December. So looking forward to a new Studio Ghibli movie by Hayao Miyazaki!

  • Hope this is an interesting documentary about the Mayan Shamanic tradition in USA

  • I recently watched a Virtual Reality (VR) documentary in a VR dedicated cinema. You get a headset and headphones. The movie is shot in 360 degrees and wherever you move your head that's the part of the scene you see. It was VERY interesting. The technology is apparently still not perfect, since it was still a bit grainy.

    I have my doubts about this technology. It will soon be so perfect that it will be difficult to distinguish between our reality and the VR one. I can already see people fleeing from their lives into this VR reality. Businesses will capitalize on this through the "Metaverse". Am I just old and sceptical of new technologies or being realistic?

  • You are being realistic. Augmented reality will come shortly after virtual, simulated AI realities ...

    Just finished the 5th season of the TV show Fargo. Its similar in tone to the Cohen brothers movie by the same name, small town people get caught up in large scale criminal violence with a handful of odd ballness thrown in. It might be my favorite of the 5 TV seasons, others have been good, so maybe its just recency?

    Anyway the 5th season had a theme around debt and played on it in deep and moving ways at times. The final scene was really moving, showing how kindness and hospitality can overcome pain and isolation. I'd love to go into it more but it'd be spoilery.

    Alien Code (The Men) it's on YouTube...

    Interesting mind trip look at living in the present moment...moment by moment...space time and dimension...Interdimensional beings.... Zenish

    Worth watching, both strange, horrific, thought provoking and ultimately illuminating. We enjoyed it. But I preferred the total fantasy that is the musical 'Wonka'.

    I recently watched and enjoyed "The Martian". There is always something fascinating about a struggle to survive against the odds. I felt that many years ago, as a child, while watching the "Robinson Crusoe" TV series. That feeling has never really left me.
    Of course, Ridley Scott rarely disappoints.

    I love the Martian, its one of my absolute favorites of more recent times, maybe of all time.

    The author of the book its based on posted each chapter online as he was writing to receive feedback on the practical science involved in the story. Most of it is pretty true to reality, though the initial storm is fictionalized. In truth the Mars atmosphere is so thin that wind storms can't generate enough force to do what it did in the movie.

    I'd also recommend the book by the same name. It goes into more detail and has additional challenges cut from the movie.

    I agree, The Martian was an excellent film.

    I watched "Pan's Labrynth" last night. Absolutely marvelous.

    ... well I enjoyed it [I have no excuses]

    Have been enjoying this in fifteen minute fragments from Netflix…

  • Interesting Vice video ...

    I'd always thought of The Netherlands as the Cannabis Capital of the world, but this was back in the 70s when visiting the legal cannabis cafes in Amsterdam...
    Thailand now seems to be the Cannabis Capital ....

    How times have change...

    Quite a few states in the US have legalised…

    MAESTRO. Stunningly good. Bradley Cooper demonstrates himself a true Master of his art. If you thought he was good in 'A Star is Born', this will astound you.
    The film was wholeheartedly endorsed by Bernstein's 3 adult children.
    A Must-see, available on Netflix
