If you haven't seen many movies it might seem fresh to you. To me it was just running through the paces.

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power
3 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

With conservative media being about 25% of the landscape, the rating of this is no surprise. Additionally, the in-congruently low audience score is evidence of dim cans that have never seen the film bashing it because they don't agree with its politics.

While I will give it props for having it's own vibe, impressive editing and some exciting sequences, the dialogue was lacking, the soundtrack forgettable and its comic book story and shallow characters undermined the whole enterprise. Waaaaaaaaaaaaay over-rated!

The Discovery
The Discovery (2017)
5 months 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.
