Seeing that you seem to be quite into movies, are you also into books?
I've been trying to force myself to read more. It's not going well. I need to increase my reading comprehension to learn to take in information in a more effective way.

I picked up 'Before the coffee gets cold' yesterday and started reading.
After 14 pages. Including white pages, I had to recap multiple times to make sure I wasnt missing important details.
I also keep zoning out and having to re-read pages due to that. It does get tiring. But I need it.
In a previous message, shadow.97 told us he was reading books.
I'm going to suggest two books: Madame Bovary and Bel Ami.

Mme bovary, available here: https://www.gutenberg.org/files/2413/2413-h/2413-h.htm

Here is a famous passage:
Then there came forward on the platform a little old woman with timid bearing, who seemed to shrink within her poor clothes. On her feet she wore heavy wooden clogs, and from her hips hung a large blue apron. Her pale face framed in a borderless cap was more wrinkled than a withered russet apple. And from the sleeves of her red jacket looked out two large hands with knotty joints, the dust of barns, the potash of washing the grease of wools had so encrusted, roughened, hardened these that they seemed dirty, although they had been rinsed in clear water; and by dint of long service they remained half open, as if to bear humble witness for themselves of so much suffering endured. Something of monastic rigidity dignified her face. Nothing of sadness or of emotion weakened that pale look. In her constant living with animals she had caught their dumbness and their calm. It was the first time that she found herself in the midst of so large a company, and inwardly scared by the flags, the drums, the gentlemen in frock-coats, and the order of the councillor, she stood motionless, not knowing whether to advance or run away, nor why the crowd was pushing her and the jury were smiling at her.
Thus stood before these radiant bourgeois this half-century of servitude.




Bel Ami, available here: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/3733/3733-h/3733-h.htm

Tonight a new movie is available on the forum. This movie is titled Held and was released in 2021.

Held is a smart genre flick that is unashamed of its roots and embraces its limitations with gusto. Kinetic in execution and tangibly retro in its mindset, it packs a savage Hitchcockian twist that lands with style and conviction.

Tonight, another good movie titled The island and released in 2005 is available on the forum.
Vasudev and usman may not have watched this movie yet. This movie is fairly cheesy at times, but the action is stellar and the score is fantastic.


A man living in a futuristic sterile colony begins to question his circumscribed existence when his friend is chosen to go to the Island, the last uncontaminated place on earth.
