The Discovery
The Discovery (2017)
4 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A really interesting concept which makes you reflect about life and its challenges and overcoming them - or in this case, choosing not to. Performances good all around, and there's a bit of a detective story underlying other happenings on the screen that kept me intrigued. Don't get some of the bad reviews, but critics these days seem to need special effects and what not to be satisfied. How does "The Force Awakens" get a 92% rating and this a 43%, when the former was a lot of poorly directed story rehash? Crap critics.

Based on what I just saw (this contains spoilers, so don't continue if you don't want to know) I don't see why this film is called "Suntan", or why "comedy" is used as one of its descriptions. Based on the behavior of the main character, Kostis, and the story, "Heatstroke" would've been more apt, although still not right. Also, while there might have been some amusing bits, the film is firmly in the "drama" category, and ultimately a complete tragedy. That all said, the performances were excellent and the story pulled me in, although it isn't a film for everyone. It's a cautionary tale, especially for middle-aged men and flirtatious women, and the fate of its main characters stayed with this viewer long after the credits rolled.

I wasn't expecting much and had initial troubles with seeing Yelchin and Mariche as a couple, but the story, performances, Mariche's magically captivating appearance, and direction slowly pulled me in and had me completely by the end. This is not a "romcom", but a "romdram" in in my mind, and am glad it is.

Sad that even alleged film experts - the critics - can't see the greatness of this film.

Dear White People

Unbelievably over-rated. Sadly and surprisingly I'll have to side with the cons that say it's received such a high rating from liberal reviewers because it addresses racism, and to give it a bad review would mean that they are racist.
