    What TV Show(s) are you watching right now?

    The currently airing show that I'm watching right now is Westworld. I'm also watching Game of Thrones and Dark Matter, though neither is currently airing. I just found out that both Westworld and Game of Thrones share the same musical composer, Ramin Djawadi. Here's his opening theme for...

    V for Vendetta [2006, Film Review]

    I see that this film was mentioned back in 2006 when it came out, and some comments where made in this thread. However, the OP in the thread hadn't even yet seen the film, but was simply thinking of seeing it. After 10 years of the film being out, I believe it has become iconic. Below I explain...

    A bridge between Mods and Non Mods: Ambassadors

    After a long discussion with flacaltenn, one of the mods here, I've decided to go public with an idea. He said (and I quote): "We're always around with the fire extinguishers and the Hazmat suits if it doesn't go well." So there's that :-). My idea is create a new forum for atleast a few non...

    "X-Men: Days of Future Past", 2014 [Film Review]

    I recently started thinking of this film I saw a while ago, in large part because of a video clip from the film which I had seen recently. The reason I decided to review it here has to do with its theme. I'm sure many would agree that the U.S. (and, by extension, the rest of the world) may be...

    "The Lady", 2011 [Film Review]

    The Lady is a biopic of the life of Suu Kyi, whose father was democratically elected to head the country of Burma, before he was killed in a military coup. Suu Kyi fled Burma and married in England, but returned to Burma when her mother was dying. I really loved this movie because it...

    The Illusionist (Film, 2006)

    It seems that the films I'm interested in right now are following a very specific pattern- namely, of a male and a female who want to be together, but face formidable obstacles and significant perils in accomplishing this. It only just occurred to me that the Illusionist is strikingly similar in...

    Pentagon shipping massive amount of arms to Iraq and Afghanistan

    Found an interesting article on the Center for Public Integrity, winner of the Pulitzer Prize, would like to know what others think of its findings. Here's an excerpt... **The Pentagon has spent billions of dollars since 2001 funneling roughly more than a million assault rifles, pistols...

    CDZ Would Hillary Clinton make a good President?

    I started a thread here discussing Donald Trump, and while I'm happy with it, I can't help but feel that having a thread discussing Donald Trump without having another thread discussing Hillary Clinton is like planning a debate but only inviting one of the debating teams to the actual debate. I...

    CDZ Why do you like/dislike Donald Trump

    A bit ago, I made a thread here that referenced an article on Donald Trump, but the parameters of the debate I envisioned weren't as clear as I think they should have been. So I decided to make this thread, which I think makes it a lot clearer. I encourage people to quote excerpts of articles...

    One more reason not to vote for Trump...

    After looking at the article linked to at the bottom of this post, I just pin it as one more reason not to vote for Trump. Other civilized comments on the article are welcome. Here's an excerpt of said article: **Sheena Monnin saw beauty pageants as [a] way to fulfill her potential – she never...

    CDZ The "War on Terror"

    Although Obama announced back in 2013 that the United States is no longer pursuing a "War on Terror", a term coined by the Bush Jr. Administration after the events of 9/11, I believe many would agree that this war continues despite the current President no longer calling it by this name. I...

    100 Years/100 Shots

    Found this video online from Jacob T. Swinney It tries to capture the best films in the last 100 years, hardly an easy task. I've seen a good many of these films, and agree that a good many should be in it. What do others think? Just in case you strongly object to some film or other not being...

    Film Review: Frequencies

    I recently saw the film "Frequencies", which can be seen on Netflix Canada and possibly in other Netflix jurisdictions. Like many people, I tend to look up film reviews on google before I see them. I'm happy with the one I read before seeing it: Frequencies Makes Smart Sci-Fi From What Thrums in...

    CDZ Is the U.S. involved in too many wars?

    A poll was done a few years ago by The Hill on the subject of this thread, and I decided to do a simpler one here. For anyone who'd like to go further than the poll, I'd like them to explain why they chose one answer over the others. For my part, I definitely believe the U.S. is involved in too...

    CDZ Sex Education

    In the not too distant past, I created a thread titled Intergenerationality that actually dealt with 2 issues, Sex Education and Intergenerationality. After rewatching a video clip from John Oliver's Last Week Tonight, I've decided to simply focus on one of these issues, Sex Education. Here is...

    Edge of Tomorrow (Film)

    I've reviewed a time travel movie, I've reviewed a Tom Cruise movie, so next up I clearly need to do a Time Travel movie with Tom Cruise in it :-). As mentioned previously, I love time travel movies, so it shouldn't be a surprise that I like Edge of Tomorrow, but I also thought it was pretty...

    Synchronicity

    For a long time I've loved that word created by Karl Jung, and now I've just finished watching a movie of the same name that I believe lives up to the word. Here's Wikipedia's introduction to the film: **Synchronicity is a 2015 American science fiction film directed, written, and edited by Jacob...

    I've seen all of Game of Thrones, waiting for the next Season. IMDb description of the series: **While a civil war brews between several noble families in Westeros, the children of the former rulers of the land attempt to rise up to power. Meanwhile a forgotten race, bent on destruction, plans...

    Funny Youtube Clips...

    I'm not sure if this is the right sub forum for this, or if there even is one here, but I thought I'd find out. I just finished watching a youtube clip with Jennifer Lawrence in it, but she's not the one making the hillarious comment. So this is my contribution, if anyone else has any, by all...

    Thrive Documentary

    I was told about this documentary a while back. For some time, I didn't watch it, but when I finally did, it deeply moved me. Directed by bank heir Foster Gamble (Proctor and Gamble), I found him to have a keen insight into the workings of the monetary system, and the main focus of this...

    CDZ Intergenerationality

    Alright, trying this subject again, hopefully it works this time. Wikipedia defines intergenerationality as "interaction between members of different generations". There is a lot of controversy over what types of interactions between these generations should take place and how. Most people...

    Illusion vs. Reality: The Rampant Voter Fraud Myth

    I'm just this guy, you know...

    I've never been a fan of doing these introduction thingies. Which is probably why I'm only doing one now, over a month and 400 posts after I actually started out here :-p. Anyone who's spent much time in the conspiracy section of this forum knows that I'm not exactly trusting of official...

    Theories on how to efficiently run an economy

    Before I begin, I'd like to say that while I've posted in many online forums over the years, I've never started a thread of this nature anywhere. It was something that definitely interested me, but not to the extent that I thought I should start a thread about it. That has now changed. I began...

    Anywhere else here like Anime?

    I found one other person in this board that likes them, thought I'd see if anyone else does. For those who aren't aware, Animes are: "a style of Japanese film and television animation, typically aimed at adults as well as children." Some are really only for adults, while others are for the...

    The Redacted 28/29 pages finally revealed on Friday...

    I found an article on the subject of them that I thought was pretty good. I don't believe Saudi Arabia plays nearly as big a role in 9/11 as the author does, but I definitely think she makes some good points. Below is the introduction to the article, would like to know what others think of it...

    9/11: The Pentaplane Flyover Theory

    There has already been a fair amount of discussion regarding what happened at the Pentagon in this forum, much of which I have participated in, in other threads. That being said, I think the other threads on the subject start off in a tone that clearly implies those behind the threads haven't...

    9/11: What really happened on that day?

    There have been threads in this forum that address the general issue of what happened on 9/11. That being said, I have found that a lot of them are not neutral in their title- their titles imply that they are either for or against an official narrative. I started a thread with the same title as...
