Christine

Not the movie about a car but rather about Christine Chubbuck. She was an newscaster who killed herself on live TV in 1974.
OK movie but I can not figure out why the need to change the station's call letters and dial position in the movie and one can find out online ??? Oh the TV station where this taken place has since changed their call letters.

Joyeux Noel

(French, German, and English, with English subtitles throughout.)

I've been on a WWI kick lately, watching documentaries and reading books. This movie is based on a true story. On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in 1914, French, Scottish, and German enemy soldiers laid down their arms and called a cease-fire, mingling and exchanging food and souvenirs. They swapped prisoners and came together to bury their dead (which had been strewn in the No Man's Land between their trenches), sing carols, and even play football. The movie (I assume) takes some fictional liberties but it's a great story. Sad, too, of course, to see the potential of human goodness juxtaposed against the reality of human barbarism.

I thoroughly enjoyed this film and would recommend it to all.

This trailer highlights a lot of the scenes, but it's so disjointed that I don't know that it really captures the spirit and energy of the movie.

American pastoral. A perfect family with sad ending. Some crabs in between unexplained fail to score.

M. Night Shyamalan's "Split", I give 5/10.
Very good 1st half.
Very average 2nd half.
He's lost the art of the twist.
The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable were great films.
