This one is a bit long, and yes, he's selling a book. But it is still interesting. I'm curious if there is an in-depth review.

The Hacking of the American Mind with Dr. Robert Lustig

Is part of our collective problem confusing pleasure and happiness? Is it related to the decrease in US life expectancy? Is it contributing to the opioid crisis? And who knew what and when?

Blade of the Immortal.

The soundtrack on the trailer is unfortunate however the film looks promising.

From director Takeshi Miike

Nice. Unfortunately, my guess is that it will have (or has had) zero impact.

One cannot fix "stupid". As my wonderful sister says about her hopeless first child. Her second, raised very much the same, is brilliant and everyone loves!

The Shawshank Redemption. If you enjoy reading, it is a Stephen King short story (Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption), which is of course better than the movie. And the movie is about as close as you can get to a book.

Punisher on Netflix trailer. Looks like a lot of drama but the trailer makes a compelling case.

Did you watch season 2 of Dare Devil? The Punisher was quite good in that, I'm looking forward to this new one.

Stopped watching DD after a few episodes. Seemed like a soap/drama masquerading as action series.

Hell I call season 2 of Dare Devil "Punisher season 1"!

I'm not complaining, no matter how that sounds. Just seemed to be WAY more about Punisher than anything much about Dare Devil. (IMO)

I agree, and that was a good thing.
