too much head stabbing

   The movies are AS FOLLOWS:

  1. Ferris Bueller's Day Off (86)
  2. Lion (16)
  3. Logan (17)
  4. Sense and Sensibilty (08)
  5. Sunshine (07)
   Ferris Bueller, always funny. Lion, always crying. Logan, always anxious. Sense and Sensibility, always proper. Sunshine, always concentrating on something else to free myself from Space Fear. 

   If you haven't seen Lion, I recommend that you do. It is beautiful and sad and Sunny Pawar is the most adorable child on the planet. I am not kidding when I say that I basically started crying a few minutes in and didn't stop until the end of the movie. If you're in an emotionally fragile state, maybe wait for a bit to watch this one. But do watch it! It's good. 

   LOGAN IS NOT A FUN ROMP THROUGH THE WOODS. BEWARE. I heard it described as feeling like a two-hour long anxiety attack and guess what: that's right on the money. It was good and I enjoyed it AND I felt exhausted at the end! I don't know if I'll ever watch it again. To me it felt like a logical progression from the rest of the X-Men movies; to Josh it felt like a re-hash of old ideas with nothing new besides more violence and f-bombs. And there is a lot of violence. Some of it seemed exploitative to me, or maybe the movie was just trying to get across the senselessness of it? I am not sure. I'm also not sure if this movie did what it was meant to do. All in all, I say it is very of the times. Could have done with ~75% less head-stabbing. 

   Sense and Sensibility the mini-series is a masterpiece, here I stand I can do no other. Down with Lucy Steele. 

   I am not good at watching scary movies even when I want to watch them and my experience with Sunshine was no exception. It was stressful! I spent a good deal of time either looking at my phone or intently embroidering. But it was also good? And I didn't get Space Nightmares, so that's also good? Some scientists/astronauts have to go shoot a bomb into the sun to re-start it. Things go wrong! The calls are coming from inside the house! Space! 



  1. That is like a lot less stabbing to wish for from Logan. (I haven't seen but have heard good things, but also have heard about the stabbingness so...)

    1. I said 75% less would be good, Josh said "more like 90%". It all depends on your head stabbing tolerance. I think that the head stabbing fits with Logan/Wolverine as a character; he's an old man in this movie who doesn't care about anything anymore. He doesn't have the time or energy to do anything less efficient that stabbin a head. He is less merciful and more brutal, and his life has made him that way. Still: I could have done with fewer stabs to various heads.
