    The trailer for the next Hunger Games looks pretty good. I've read the books as well- don't usually like books written in the 1st person, but the series was pretty decent.

    BTW- I'm called Ender because my real name is Andrew and my Mom had read Ender's Game. I also recommend the books and the movie because of the incredible precision that OSC forecasts the technology of war- not to mention the internet and information tech.

    Not that these things are foolproof, but the early reviews (and the previews) seem to show that there are more details and the actors are given better material than in the first one. I am going to see it this weekend with my niece
    Genuine, willful, aggressive ignorance is the one sure way to tick me off. I wish I could say you were trolling. I know better, and it's just sad.

    Here's a brilliant piece of writing from A Man For All Seasons (1966) with plenty of contemporary relevance:

    That piece is ripped from Thomas Paine, who almost wrote that word for word. Well, 1966 was a different time I suppose.

    LOL, seriously, though, this one is underrated:

    That would be awesome. I love stealth activists!

    I saw the second film yesterday. I'm far too much a fan to be objective though.

    I will say that I like Peeta in the movie, but he annoyed me in the books.

    Lonely are the Brave

    Based on a novel by iconclast Edward Abbey

    Kirk Douglas stars as the man of integrity who has no use for authority but ends up in direct conflict with it. Also starring Walter Matthau, George Kennedy, Carrol O'Conner, and other greats.

    You will love this movie.

    The entire internet is the domain of paid shills and bots. If you don't know this by now....

    Israel, under control of the Crown and, ultimately, the Vatican, own the USA. If you don't know this by now....

    Talk to people about liberty. You won't find it on websites, you won't find it in politicians.

    But now you can't talk to people because of "social distancing"....brought to you by shills and politicians.

    I'd add The Master (PT Anderson movie with Philip Seymour Hofman and Joaquin Phoenix) to the "individualist/anti-collectivist" list.

    At least, that's what I got out of it. It's a trip.

    It's loosely based on Scientology, at least some of the techniques he uses.




    A good one meant for 3D-IMAX:



    It's not really a movie, the 'plot' is mostly given away in the trailer. It's a concert.

    Awesome thread! I don't have time to compile a list at the moment but as far as tv series are concerned my favorite of all time for anti-war is China Beach.

    I just got through watching the series again after taking the dvds out of the library. I personally liked it because it was about war as seen from a woman's perspective. Great writing, cinematography, soundtrack, the acting by Dana Delany, Marg Helgenberger.. Just so touching and funny at times as well. (And I think the best opening of a tv series EVER)

    Paranoia is having all of the facts.

    Oh, and this is in the news also:

    It’s A Wonderful Life Report Censored

    UPDATE: Our Infowars Nightly News free-speech protected analysis of the film It’s A Wonderful Life was taken down by YouTube after only 24 hours. Infowars follows a high standard of copyright recognition developed through many consultations with various lawyers. The censorship of our review is a gross misappropriation of copyright law, which allows companies outside of court to claim copyright infringement on something that clearly isn’t a violation. Our review was clearly a political analysis showing short clips of It’s A Wonderful Life and tying them into current bankster behavior operating through the Federal Reserve, the IMF and the World Bank.

    This is a great example of how CSIPA and SOPA would legalize this misappropriation of copyright enforcement that these companies are currently engaging in.

    Videos on Youtube are being taken down completely because of mere accusations that they violate copyrights, regardless if the copyright claim is completely unfounded and bogus.

    This was a pure political move meant to censor our powerful report exposing the truth on the fractional-reserve, fiat banking system. The full version of It’s A Wonderful Life has been available on YouTube since Feb. 2012 and has over 700,000 views, but YouTube has not taken it down. That’s because the real agenda is not copyright enforcement but rather it’s about censoring the truth and protecting the global cartels within the state-corporate nexus.

    We aired our review on the Dec. 24 edition of Alex Jones Show and on the Infowars Nightly News and it is clearly covered by fair use because it analyzes a cultural phenomenon and its historical roots. It’s a wonderful life – for the banksters that brought our country under so much tyranny that could never exist under a system of sound money.

    Because our film review is so effective, they took it down. But here it is again in full:



    Mr. Henry F. Potter, the president of the Building and Loan Association in the 1946 film It’s a Wonderful Life, has very striking similarities to the modern day banksters working through the Federal Reserve to sap the nation’s wealth.

    As we look back over the past hundred years, America has experienced the Great Depression, multiple recessions, stagflation and the loss of 99% of the dollarʼs purchasing power – none of it wouldʼve been possible without the Federal Reserve, creating bubbles and bursting them, enslaving us with debt and destroying our purchasing power and our ability to save through inflation.

    Yes, itʼs been a wonderful lie — for the banksters.

    And many Americans are left like George Bailey. Facing the collapse of their dreams and financial ruin.

    There are striking parallels in Frank Capraʼs Itʼs a Wonderful Life to lies and tricks of the modern banker elite. Human nature doesnʼt change and the greedy elite of 1913 and 2013 look much like Potter.

    Please spread the message and make this film go viral.

    The FAILURE of the United States Government to operate and maintain an
    Honest Money System , which frees the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, is the single largest contributing factor to the World's current Economic Crisis.

    Maytime (1937)

    I saw a really good old movie on Turner Classic Movies over the weekend.

    I was so old the moral of it was that maybe a young women might want to chose having a family over a career. At least that was a little of what it was about. Actually she could have chose either way.

    It had some great scenes of a May Festival and some great snow scenes.

    It starts out a young couple is having an argument. The man wants to get married and his wife at home. The women wants to go off to New York and have a try at becoming a singer. They argue and he leaves.

    A next door neighbors hears the argument and calls her over. She tells the young lady that though they've lived next door that she never really told her anything about her life.

    Then the movie shifts to her life as a young women.

    It goes on to tell of when she made it as a singer and sang before Napoleons Court. Some of the best singing I've ever heard happen in this scene. She has the most beautiful control and voice range. You just have to hear it.

    She meets someone but sticks with her life as a singer. Actually there is a lot more to it than that.

    Lots happens and some great May Festival scenes. I don't think they could do it anymore. It looked to much to be history happening more than a reenactment.

    Anyway near the end it gets back to the present time and talking to the young lady who now knows a little something about the women she's been neighbors with.

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0029222/

    Original Trailer and some other clips on the side. Really Good and gets you to the good parts really fast.

    Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy MAYTIME Czaritza clip


    Maytime






    Maytime is an important political movie at this time I'm thinking. Most young people don't realize that there are times in life for things if your going to do them. A persons May Time is a real heart breaker if you let it slip away.

    Thanks for sharing, guys! So many great films mentioned here (some of them I didn't watch, of course). I want to add Interstellar, The Nice Guys, The Irishman, Green Book, A Man Called Ove and Captain Fantastic. Most of them I found in the library of Cinema APK (I had enough time for that being on the quarantine ). Where do you look for the movies to watch?
