  • The Unbelievers 2013

    ★★★ Watched 05 Oct, 2014

    This isn't a documentary as much as a fan service video in movie length. Dawkins and Krauss are celebrating themselves, their views and science as a whole, and while it's a bit slow at times, I enjoyed most of it.
    It's not a film to convince people who have different views. Both scientists come across as condescending and especially Dawkins clearly enjoys correcting the people he has discussions with.

    However, considering the vast amount of films celebrating religion in one way or another, I still found it refreshing to watch this.

  • Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior 1981

    The focus is not on the monsters/special effects, they're simply the backdrop of a wonderful movie about friendship. I thought I knew what to expect, but it was much better. Amazing actors all around, too!

    If you haven't seen it: There are 5 people on the cast list. Yes, 5. Those are all the people who appear on screen during the whole movie.

Especially Ellen Page, I mean, she was 18 (looking like 14) when the movie was made and she's simply incredible in it.…
