The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One
2 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Every once and awhile one is lucky enough to run into that rarest of film birds: a 'B' film that thinks it's an 'A' film. This sci-fi isn't here for you, it exists wonderfully on it's own and everyone involved, onscreen or not, is playing for keeps. I was awestruck at first. This is the little guy on a football or basketball team able to play with the big boys. Amazing. Recommended.

The Mountain Between Us
3 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A survival romance,(which is not a genre one actually seeks out, but rather one that seems to find you) without any surprises other than that the leads (who are suited to, and better than the thin material) are in it.. Nonetheless, you are rooting for them by the end. Watch for the uncredited dog, who very nearly steals the film entirely.

Everything Beautiful Is Far Away
3 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

There are sci_fi elements in the story, and indeed it appears set in a sci-fi framework but, au contraire, this is a really just about a disconnected young man who finds his significant other and so is disconnected from disconnection, no more, no less. It ascribes to that proverbial bit of thinking that "if only I could find a mate, all my problems would be solved." If only the relationship explored could've shown what he got in exchange for giving up his singular video game, other than the woman choosing him too. Slow going for a bit set in a desert. The actors are competent, only lacking material with which to work.

Up the River
Up the River (1930)
3 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

John Ford paints a picture of America like Norman Rockwell painted, uhhh, pictures: a reflection, a fantasy, people wanted to believe was true (despite evidence to the contrary). So prisons are like summer camps, prisoners simply regular guys who lacked the right chance, yadda, yadda, yadda. Hokum, P.T.Barnum style hokum, sure, and delivered with a smile, but entertaining hokum, yeah? Yeah. Plus, Spencer Tracy as the cocksure, conman type, Mr.Fix-It, and Bogie (yeah, THAT Bogie) as The Kid. Not bad.

In a gentler future than the one's proposed by Skynet artificial intelligence has it's metaphorical hands full just trying to figure us out, much less be our friend. A quiet,sedate, adult offering with meaty chunks to chew over and meditate on, this is best perhaps enjoyed on a rainy day. Resonant and smart. Intuitive.
