Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ. The most violent and yet the most beautiful. We watch it every Good Friday.

Trapped in an inescapable family setting, I was recently coerced into watching Hacksaw Ridge. The movie is war-porn from start to finish. I kept my eyes closed most of the time. When considering the torture-porn in Passion of the Christ, it seems to me that Mel Gibson is f*cked up and that the fetish for violence among his fans is an indication that they need psychoanalysis.

Guilty as charged.  :hehe

I didn't like Hacksaw nor The Passion, but I've enjoyed other movies he's directed like Braveheart and Apocalypto.

Yesterday I finished Theodora Goss' collection Snow White Learns Witchcraft. It contains both poems and short stories. I really liked the short stories. There were interesting takes on fairy tales and folklore, and they featured interesting heroines. I'm not that much of a fan of poetry, but I did find some of the poems intriguing as well. Well worth picking up.

I liked Bumblebee.  grint

I did, too. I think they were very faithful to the character that is Bumblebee. Crazy, a little immature and ready to fight.

I've recently seen two movies.

IMO, Bumblebee deserves 1.5 stars out of 5.

IMO, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald deserves 4 stars out of 5.

Masha - You should like this part in the article:

"We’ll continue to look to books to find new voices, especially as we’re expanding into the African continent. There’s a lot of great literature there. We’re really actively looking to tap into some stories there that perhaps didn’t have the right platform to be told on a global scale before.”
