This past Halloween I didn't even buy candy. Nobody knocked on my the door. This wasn't the case in past years.

I'm not too sure exactly how Halloween relates to the Celts, but I'm pretty sure the idea of dressing up and collecting candy did not start with them. I'm not even sure if it was the Americans who started it. From what I'm seeing Halloween is worldwide with the exception of totalitarian regimes such as North Korea. A few years ago I was in Colombia on the night of Oct 31st and there where children in the street going door to door collecting candy.

Commercialized? Absolutely!! Anything to make a dollar. Money is the one true god.

Today, a new movie, titled Maze Runner, and released in 2014 is available on the forum.
Maybe some of you have already watched this movie. I guess the users of the forum will appreciate this one.
It's probably the best movie of the trilogy.


Storyline:
Thomas is deposited in a community of boys after his memory is erased, soon learning they're all trapped in a maze that will require him to join forces with fellow "runners" for a shot at escape.

In English with Arabic subtitles

Tonight, a strange movie, titled “The mothman prophecies” and released in 2002 is available on the forum.

Storyline: A reporter is drawn to a small West Virginia town to investigate a series of strange events, including psychic visions and the appearance of bizarre entities.
This movie was inspired by the real life events that took place in Point pleasant in 1966 and 1967, a 13-month period during which paranormal activity was brought to a level that infected the entire town. Then, a New York-based journalist named John Keel came to the city to investigate the phenomenon. What he discovered was a place where unexplainable things occurred with staggering regularity.

Like Lisa Simpson once said in one of their episodes, Christmas is a time when people buy people gifts they don't need with money they don't have. Only the merchants make money.

Ever wonder why it's celebrated on December 25th? Missionaries were trying to impose their religion on Druids and others who lived in the far north. For them winter solstice was very important because it's the day the sun slowly returns after so much darkness. They came up with this outrageous lie that Jesus Christ was born on the winter solstice. The date came to be December 25th only because it's 3-4 days after the real solstice (Dec 21st) that the return of the sun becomes apparent in the Northern Hemisphere. In reality nowhere in the Christian Bible is there any mention of Jesus' date of birth, assuming he even existed at all.

Naturally I don't celebrate it. Went to work as usual.

I didn't watch this movie but it obtained solid reviews. Note that it might not be suitable for every user of the forum since it was rated R for strong violence, language and some drug content.

Today, a new movie titled "girl followed" and released in 2017 is available on the forum.


This is an above average TV movie and the story is quite good and quite engaging though, in some parts, highly contrived with characters acting illogically to move the plot along. If the acting is sub-par throughout, this movie might be entertaining enough for humbert or Vasudev.


Storyline: A resentful 14-year-old girl is drawn into a seemingly innocent friendship with an older man, but the relationship turns sinister.

Tonight, a new movie, titled "zero fucks given" is available on the forum.

This movie is in English, however there are a few passages in French. It shouldn't be a problem for humbert or shadow.97.


Storyline: A young flight attendant loses her job at a low-cost airline.

Tonight, a new movie titled Eiffel and released in 2021 is available on the forum.


Storyline: The government is asking Eiffel to design something spectacular for for the proposed 1889 Exposition Universelle, a world's fair to celebrate the centennial of the French Revolution. But Eiffel simply wanted to design the subway.
The proposed tower had been a subject of controversy, drawing criticism from those who did not believe it was feasible and those who objected on artistic grounds. Prior to the Eiffel Tower's construction, no structure had ever been constructed to a height of 300 m, or even 200 m for that matter, and many people believed it was impossible.
If Eiffel initially showed little enthusiasm, he did approve further study and the tower was finally built. It remained the world tallest building from 1889 until 1930.

In French with English subtitles (note that you need to download the movie to have subtitles, they are not hardcoded).
