    My immediate impression is that the directing (whether entirely due to screenplay or cinematography?) is pretty bad. . . That or the Actors had the most basic introduction to their role, without any clue as to how to act.

    It's stunted and contrived performances with very little real (genuine to the character or story development) emotion as to what is expected during each camera position.

    What sets the individual characters apart barely register in their actions, and it's as if the movie was cropped down to about 1/2 of what the screen was intending to capture, and you are left guessing as to what happened before, or after the action is rolling (not that it isn't obvious, but it feels "closed off" from a narrative perspective when using visual communication, causing the audience to lose interest almost immediately because it gets boring or unengaging.)

    It's evident a lot of the Directing is formulaic (cut clothing which is often a tacky aspect to visual communication but makes no sense from the standpoint; such as don't they have resources in a slave-camp prison colony to get new equipment--perhaps they don't--and why do the guards have absolutely no clue what they are doing? Why are wires hanging out of equipment like it was pieced together by an idiot with no wrench or tools to disassemble things, and wouldn't that be the first thing to consider when operating industrial equipment with a security tolerance application (and the fact that electrical wires are dangling out and yet weather covering is enclosing the buttons and essential parts of the equipment?

    They could have at the least done better takes with the Actors, because at this point it seems it's not the Actors who are to blame if the Director was only aiming for contrived and forced visual narrative, without the ability to digest it from the audience's perspective; and some of this could be due to lacking some experience with film making, where they worked with what they had to finish it.

    Comparing the "openness" of a world to movies like Bladerunner (which may be unfair because that movie is on a different "ballgame,") you see something new and different from usual "reality," the story explains itself with proper attention to the premise of a film using its own finite logical accuracy that becomes more acceptable over time (such as Deckard being a replicant) without having to explain to the audience what underlies the foundation of the movies' reality. At least with Bladerunner, you are introduced to the basic premise of everything without wondering where the F-CK the story is actually heading towards.

    The set design isn't bad but falls short of the most basic premise (guy walks into an escape pod and without showing the door being shut, is alerted to low-oxygen; not long after this scene he has a mask hanging down from his face and is talking to a woman with what looks like a dive suit for the planet's atmosphere? Perhaps the oxygen is just the tanks reserves on the ship, which has been abandoned, but it doesn't indicate it was the tanks reserves) and is more illogical than need be. An example of this is at 22:55 the main actor (name?) is using a rifle reflex sight (not a magnified scope) with reticle and then the clip jumps to a magnified image of an object off into the distance using that rifle. . . That is not magnified (or it shows no zoom capability as it should if trying to engage the audience) and it doesn't seem as if the guy actually knows how to use the gun by how he is holding it. . . as to why he has his gun out in the first place seems the most absurd, because neither prior to this scene do you see any enemy engagement, and you don't see any reference from the characters that he is aiming his gun to check out what's off in the distance (such as important in the Actor performance to communicate in the visual narrative.)

    Perhaps I was too distracted critiquing this that I paid little attention to the plot development (but I don't think I did. . . It's basically a prisoner of war that is freed by inept prison guards incapable of managing prisoners they knew were dangerous, who then magically transport themselves into a ship, and then crash land on an alien planet, *and I have to watch more of the film to find out*) I understand the personality of the directing style is intended to get as much of the "subject" into the image as possible without drifting off or allowing the scene to develop a pace for each action development, which doesn't give much lenience to creative story development or contribution from the talent on the set.

    It should be pointed out the budget was very small (at $180,000) vs films like 'The Arrival' starring Charlie Sheen at a budget of $25 million (only making $14 million at the box office,) this film did pretty well and gave me more interest in the story development, though they still fall of shortcomings that were under their control.

    I should note at this point I have only watched 25 minutes (and perhaps revise this if my opinion changes) and will continue to watch it and post accordingly, though from what I can tell it's a film that isn't divulging anything immediately and much of what I critiqued probably has to do with budget constraints for filming. . . It wasn't like they could just take their time and draw everything together using experienced talent (which isn't bad and is surprising at times given what they had access to,) though it really is down to things that could have been better with what they had access to.






    It is available on Gog.com though I tend to find games like this to be better when viewed as a playthrough. . .

    It seems pretty evident this guy is a BS artist. . . Look at when he blinks his eyes and then looks away from the camera when telling his story. His non-verbal cues indicate lack of credibility, and I suspect Prince William's little chat in private was to tell him to shut the F up because he wasn't doing anyone any favors by carrying on. It's not that I don't consider the possibility of the Royal family having some intention of doing away with Diana (plenty of anecdotal stories seem to indicate that perhaps the family isn't so innocent, but trying to separate fact from fiction is fairly difficult to make in most of these because tabloids and genuine news seems a bit too keen to try and latch onto attention-seeking articles. Needless to say this guy has taken advantage of "news" well after the genuine story would have been prescient, and his delay in disclosing "evidence" such as alleged Diana notebooks disclosing complicity in a murder case--and without a hint of PTSD brought on by how close he alleges to be--is of a very doubtful nature. . . Out of all the time he claims to be close to the royal family it seems very unusual that he lacks any genuine credibility with all of the footage and photos that are streaming through this steaming. . . nevermind.

    If your initial impressions were that he might be a bit fruity, you are not mistaken. He divorced his wife and married a dude, and now is apparently a travel blogger.

    Was there a cover-up in bin Laden killing?


    - referring to https://www.latimes.com/california/s...rnia-night-sky

    This news article is calling it space debris and its fairly evident that the lights are appearing slowly and stationary in the atmosphere. Debris would look like an asteroid burning up in the atmosphere.

    So basically the three lights become 4-5-6 from right to left, and then disappear from left to right in a 10-minute duration. . . NOT FUCKING SPACE DEBRIS.

    The moronic idiots that downvote videos like this need to snuff themselves out, which would do society a favor.

    Also, the exact same thing showed up around Laguna Beach, on the same fucking day!


    This is making a reference to a documentary though I'll be watching Patient Seventeen because it is free.

    And

    I was looking up info (after thinking of making "MRE" packages for convenience) on Chamber Vac (large food vac designed to decompress the air around the bag) and came across this guy:

    His last meal was rabbit stew (and though he says it would be his preferred last meal he apparently died of natural causes.)


    He looks surprisingly similar to Michael Moore and even has a similar mannerism in his voice (not weight related I presume. . . and I don't think he's from Michigan.)

    Since he did this recipe only because he had the house to himself, I'm wondering if his wife (who often assisted with camera recording his show) was opposed to rabbit stew because it was a rabbit or because he was deep frying the shit out of it (thus why he died?) Judging from her taking over the show it doesn't appear the deep-southern style of cooking is going away (by this I imply the kinds of things popular with bacon/meat, butter, sugar, etc.)

    Either way it does look like something I would consider trying and believe things like frog legs, quail, rabbit, and goose just needs to be fried or seasoned in a different way to make it more paletable. A salt brine rinse is probably also advised in many such things, and I've often incorporated a curry seasoning of some kind (I've resorted to using my commercial grade coffee bean grinder into a spice grinder, and have a large jar made up.)

    But I don't really cook and would rather make an omelet, Shin Ramyun, bean burrito, air fried fish, or pizza. Bean soup or stews are about the only thing I cook in batches that I generally have to myself, and anything I bake and leave on the counter get's eaten by others indifferent of whether it was for them. I would be well into cooking a lot of things if a garden was plausible, and it's the main reason I don't just avoid eating meats altogther as I generally prefer to cook with vegetables (and I hate words like Vegan, or Vegetarian for some reason, as I don't think recipes need to constitute those terminologies if it's a sensible recipe, and generally believe you should still incorporate things like butter or broth, if not some meat of some kind if it makes sense to do so.

    Eating nothing but fried greasy foods, baked goods, and a predominance of meat in a dish, seems incredibly wasteful and inconsiderate to life on this planet.

    For the record I was planning on making gumbo (I have made it in the past and will likely do the authentic style with genuine roux.)





    Report Report 2

    The truck was her husbands who was off in the National Guard, and in the first scene she was carrying a backpack presumably with things she would use to kill her stepson. She seems to have started abusing her stepson (he had a pool of blood in the carpet of his room) and according to the video, appears to be limping during this time, but I'm also wondering if his stomach sickness he had was due to anxiety and stress or possible attempts to poison him (perhaps it was a "perfect storm" for a psychopathic woman on the fringe of emotional collapse/breakdown, such as relationship issues?)

    Did her own stepdad die from a car accident prior to Gannon being off from school (or was it a lie just like her claimed rape by a construction worker who didn't arrive on the day she claims her son was a runaway,) as was her excuse to stay home or is it made up? Was the truck reversed to obstruct the camera she knew was at this residence because the Volkswagen Tiguan with blood stains is apparently the vehicle used to carry out the murder (though the truck was used and didn't return him back, so either Gannon was left off to someone's house to put an end to him and then used her own vehicle to deliver his remains off somewhere?)

    On the second trip (which was not the last trip apparently, as it sounds like it was figured out the boy got out on the opposite side which is what I suspected) she seems to have left her cell phone after searching for info on "does my cell phone track me if it's turned off?"

    Why is it so unclear about her trips to Petco, and shouldn't camera footage of the boy be showing with her, and even still why is it the biological daughter she had show up at the house not cooperating with the Police when she was asked to get cleaning supplies? Shouldn't video show her leaving the residence in her own vehicle?

    4-hour radio program (on Covid? I haven't listened to it.)

    Dulce claims of an underground base (based on the lunatic Phil Schneider? They seem to make no reference to him but that seems to be where it came from, and yes the guy was a lunatic that chopped his fingers off, and his story is clearly BS.)


    Playlist (aside from what this video shows, as much as I like to think the content creator is credible, I see numerous indications he is either extremely gullible or is complicit as a BS artist. What I am basing this off are the things he posts as evidence of the paranormal, which strikes me as a con artist.)

    She looks like she's been crying. She's been bullied since the series released and it isn't fair.

    Fuck you Eric Goode. And you call yourself a philanthropist and conservationist. Shitting on this woman's life and organization. Dickhead.



    4.5 minutes in and Howard is about to cry talking about all of this. The best thing he said is that the show is about con artists, but the biggest con artists of them all were the directors Rebecca and Eric.

    Just look at what they've done.

    All strain hotspots are different from one another, and may have originated in a US military base?

    Though not mentioned, the bat lady Scientist in Wuhan that seems to have disappeared with any reference scrubbed from the lab website, who is believed to have allowed a natural strain to be released accidentally into the public, was a scapegoat?
