The sound track is pretty awesome too.i watched again Conan The Barbarian -
the real one.
the more i watch this film, the more new things i notice. Maybe it's because i first watched this as a child, and was just smitten by Conan's awesomeness, that i didn't pay attention to the detail. For example, i thought the first scene - the attack on the village - was just filler. I didnt see how it set up the riddle of steel, why would Thulsa want to attack them, and i didn't get that Conan's mother was being hypnotized.
still to this day an amazing film. 8.5/10
I enjoyed this movie. I made the mistake of starting it on a middle of the week night and realizing I still had an hour and a half left after I started dozing off. Still good in 2 parts, though.Nothing much on TV or the DVR Saturday night so I fired up the ROKU and checked out the Netflix offerings. Got hooked on "Cloud Atlas" for 3 hours. Wish I had known more about it before watching but it was a fun ride if you could stay with it.
I *really* liked Cloud Atlas a lot. So I watched it a 2nd time, and it was as good if not better than the 1st. I might watch it a 3rd time, which is saying a lot for a 3hr movie..Nothing much on TV or the DVR Saturday night so I fired up the ROKU and checked out the Netflix offerings.

Awesome, glad you liked it E. Colman is SOOOO much better. The interaction between the two of them is great.KT, I watched the first 2 seasons of Broadchuch.
They were very good. Olivia Colman is a much better actress than Anna Gunn.
I just need for Season three (the last season they are doing, I think) to come onto Netflix or Amazon.
Also watched Endeavour, which is pre-Inspector Morse, when he was just starting out as a Detective Constable.
There's 4 seasons, each with 4 episodes per season. First three were on Amazon and the 4th season was just on PBS, which I just missed.
Worth a try if you like these British detective series.
It's the 3rd season of Broadchurch that I just missed on out on PBS.
The 4th season of Endeavor was just recently on PBS that I put on DVR so I could watch after I was
caught up on the first 3 seasons from Amazon.
Hmmm, sounds like I'd be interested in this one. I think I'll add it to my YouTube "Watch Later" list. Kind of annoying how the official YouTube Movies version of it (in 1080p) is $12.99 when a bunch of other movies, like the newest Alien movie and Guardians of the Galaxy 2 are $4.99. I'd prefer to watch it in 1080p instead of 720p from the first link but I ain't paying $12.99 to watch the movie.i accidentally watched a film.
how, you say, does one accidentally watch a film?
well, i was watching some Forrest Gump videos on youtube, about him and Bubba in Vietnam, then i clicked on another video, and i didn't realize it was a full film until i was 20 minutes in.
Land of Mine / Under Sandet 2015 HD - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3841424/reference
Apparently, after WW2, a "small" number of german POW (about 2000 of them) were kept in Denmark to forcibly remove the defensive mines they previously laid when they were setting up "Fortress Europe", the fortification of just about every coastline under Nazi control.
Now, most of these POWs were conscripts, and many were taken from the Hitler Youth; in other words, they were kids.
The story is of a group of these kids, and the Danish instructor / warden who forces them to remove the mines, a *very* dangerous job.
The film is 30% great acting, 70% tension. It's not really a war film, it's more of an existentialist film, the kids don't fully understand why they are there, the instructor doesn't understand why he needs to tread them so harshly. The film *is* all in german, with english hardcoded subs, but i found it easy to watch. Very good production, and apparently it received great critical acclaim just about everywhere, with 21 awards to its name. I liked it, i wouldn't call it AMAZING, but it was a good film and well made. The tension can get a bit much over time, so if you are into these kind of films like "the man stuck in a car booth" or "the man stuck in a phone boot" or "the man stuck in a coffin underground" then dude, you gon' love this film. If you feel meditative, then also you gonna love this film.
If you wanted to see the "stop forrest stop" scene, maybe you're not going to like it as much.
7/10 - good film, but a bit too much.
Speaking of Olivia Colman, I just watched The Night Manger. It had Olivia Colman, Hugh Laurie and Tom Hiddleston in it. Its based on a John Le CarreAwesome, glad you liked it E. Colman is SOOOO much better. The interaction between the two of them is great.
I will check out Endeavour, thanks. We are in-between shows right now, so need something new to watch.
There is no way to say if he would get convicted by a jury with the evidence they had, but certainly possible. It is disturbing that he spent 5 and a half months in jail just so they could decide if there should be a jury trial with what little circumstantial evidence they had.Long Shot - Netflix Original - 10/10 - HOLY CRAP! Everyone should watched this. It is a 40 minute documentary about someone that was falsely accused of murder and the coincidences that prevented his conviction. It actually made me teary eyed and I can't say why because of spoilers. It's actually a legit thing to watch with someone on a date.
Actually, it was well edited to evoke emotion.

Yes I did....did you watch the credits?It was more concerning that they tried to frame him
Yes I did.
The detectives didn't try to frame him, they tried to get a confession through illegal interrogation tactics. For me, framing would be planting/manufacturing evidence that would be presented in court.
I still find it far more disturbing that he spent that much time in jail on very flimsy evidence and he would have been in jail far longer if it had gone to trial. This should not even have been brought before a judge in the first place with what little evidence they had.
