Watched Patriot's Day and Lights Out.  The shaky cam plagues Patriot's Day but it was a fairly decent film about the Boston bombing.  Marky Mark delivers a serviceable performance. Not great but good.  3.5 stars.

Lights Out was a gripping horror film that kept me in suspense throughout.  It also doesn't overstay its welcome clocking in at only about 75 minutes.  Produced by James Wan, it definitely seems to bear his signature.  I enjoyed all of the actor's performances but I didn't buy Teresa Palmer as a person who would put up sexy evil pictures of witches and Baphomet throughout her apartment.  That didn't ring true.  She just didn't have that Goth vibe going on.  That's the only criticism that I have of the film. A superior horror film. 4 stars.
This movie is like a very grim Grimm fairy tale. Beautiful and chilling with Hansel and Gretel on the run from the evil ogre.  Robert Mitchum is menacing even when he plays a good guy. Very scary in this.
And Lillian Gish is beautiful Tough Love as Rachel Cooper: You know, when you're little, you have more endurance than God is ever to grant you again. Children are man at his strongest. They abide.

Outstanding, unique, beautifully photographed.  TigerLily recommended

Grimm Fairy tale indeed!  Very apt description. Charles Laughton directed it too.  Damn shame he only directed this film.  I love it when Mitchum plays the villain.  Here he is scary and superb.  If you like his turn in this, then you might like Cape Fear and 5 Card Stud.  Though I'm sure you've seen Cape Fear, TL.  Peter Graves also makes an appearance as Mitchum's cellmate playing the father of the children.

Beyond the darkness had a solid week I think. The Georgia  Ghost investigator was really good. Glad it's been better, it had been pretty lackluster lately. Glad it's trending upward.

Savannah is a great town to investigate ghosts.  Hell, you can even get drunk while you are investigating.  lol.  At least at the Moon River Brewery anyway though Savannah is an open-carry town so you can walk the streets with your preferred beverage of choice.  I'm ashamed to say that I stayed dry when I was up there last but that was mainly due to the fact that most places were packed with tourists getting ready for St. Patty's plus the people I was up there with don't really drink.

Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) says the Russians hired a thousand "bloggers" to post things (undefined) and influence the election.  That seems to be his chief complaint.

How many of you Bellgabbers were influenced in your voting by our own "Canadian" poster 136 or 142? Do you believe that 1000-Russians posting on the Internet really influenced to election?

From the Panama papers, Podesta's emails and financial disclosures it appears at this point that the Russians probably phished Podesta because he and his brother were deeply in business with them. All the Hillary related stuff was simply a bonus they exploited.

You're still hanging onto the hope that the Russians didn't have anything to do with the election in any way then? Bless you. You'd better tell the Senate, the CIA, the FBI, the NSA and numerous other interested parties. I'd include the house intel committee but the Rep chairman is in hock to Trump and has cancelled all meetings indefinitely. Oddly no Trumpers on here have expressed any objection whatsoever to that behaviour. Or the fact he revealed there was a FISA  investigation, which in itself is a felony.  I'm sure they'd have given Obama the same benefit of the doubt.

Still pulling in thousands of downloads every month, thanks for asking, Least Likeable Member of Podcast Not Included. What was that, the third or fourth show you killed with your complete lack of charisma?

For a guy who claims to be successful you sure seem hung up on someone supposedly below you , on the other hand the woman known as Heather never once bashes you or Bellgab with her live mic .

Of course, the sick, lame and lazy should be treated the same as those who work for a living and contribute to society.  Why should there be any incentive to work. Let's just put everyone on a stipend and take care of all their needs to include cell phones and their drug of choice.

Sometimes I think there is something to be said for Social Darwinism on the basis of one's worth to society.    It would improve the gene pool across and within races.

Are you including children and those with pre-existing conditions among the "sick, lame and lazy?"

Herbert Spencer and others who advocated Social Darwinism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries would have refused assistance to these people and allowed them to suffer and perish.
