The animated figures, Groot and Rocket Raccoon, are the fun characters here.
    It's one of those movies that I will watch every single time it comes on cable. A visual feast. Explosion of colors. Great cameos - Michael Rooker stealing every scene he is in as Yondu. And Benecio del Toro as whatever it was he was!

    Unbreakable is arguably his best movie after the Sixth Sense.

    I liked Sixth Sense a lot. I hated hated hated Signs, but that's because I have an irrational fear of realistic (oxymoron) aliens. When it made its first appearance and walked on the sidewalk after appearing out of the bushes, I jumped and let out the most girly shriek. I don't think I've seen anything else of his except The Visit, which wasn't really that scary. Not a big fan of his.

    This was actually Guardians 2, but I did watch Guardians 1 on cable this past weekend. Guardians 2 is way more fun.

    manchester by the sea (2016) casey affleck, lucas hedges, kyle chandler, michelle williams

    saw it on amazon prime. it's fantastic. but for some reason, lucas hedges was jesse eisenberg to me. he does resemble him but not so much i should keep thinking it's actually him. i love lucas now as i love jesse. the acting and chemistry between lucas and casey was amazing.

    michelle was great too.

    the central park five (2012) This is a documentary about the 1989 case of five black and latino teenagers who were convicted of raping a white woman in central park. after having spent between 6 and 13 years each in prison, a serial rapist confessed to the crime.

    at that time, there were about 6 murders a day in new york, but the press jumped on this case, many believe, because the victim was a white investment banker and the suspects were not white.

    during the same time period, another woman was raped and thrown off a roof in a poor neighborhood and hardly got any press at all. she was not white.

    donald trump took out a page in the newspaper calling for the death penalty for these suspects.

    this was a campaign by the cops and the prosecution against 5 poor teenagers who didn't understand what was being done to them and whose parents couldn't afford lawyers. the boys trusted the cops and let the cops railroad them into false confessions by browbeating them for 13 hours with no sleep, convincing the teenagers if they just confess they'd be let off the hook.

    it is outrageous how much these cops and the prosecution knew when they did this to them, like the dna found on the victim didn't belong to any one of them.

    there's a lot more to this story that is mind-blowing.

    I love both the Sixth Sense and Signs. The alien scene you refer to is great, thanks to the fantastic acting of Joaquin Phoenix. At the time when the scene was shot, they didn't know yet what the alien would look like or what the scene was going to show at all. So Joaquin just had to imagine something shocking and they put the clip and alien in later.

    I watched Sully over the weekend. I don't know why but I was uncontrollably crying through parts of this. I only marginally paid attention to this when it really happened, but it's simply amazing. Tom Hanks played Sully as very dignified and calm (and I can't think of anybody in that situation).

    mommie dead and dearest (2017) an hbo documentary that blew my mind. it's about a mother that is stark raving mad and keeps her child in a wheelchair for her whole life but the child can walk. the mom is collecting all kinds of disability for disabilities the child does not have.

    there was one video where the child was on stage in a pretty dress as other girls danced but she was laying down because either her mother convinced her she can't walk or she was told not to walk, but i cried because she looked so sad not to be able to get up and dance like everyone else.

    when she grows up her mother still keeps her on a short, taut leash. her and a new boyfriend plot to kill the mother.

    this is a crazy story with a batshit crazy mother, but the daughter, aside from probably being so confused and stunted developmentally, was very articulate and sweet in custody and said it felt so good to be honest. it breaks my heart she had to endure such a bizarre and confined existence under her mother's thumb her whole life.

    ^Is that the same story as the article that was posted around here? I know that's a vague question, but I think there was a thread about that story somewhere?
