Re: “Spotlight a stinging inquest into the Catholic church's sex abuse scandals — and an elegy for print media resources

"Spotlight" shows how difficult it is to get the truth out of an organized crime syndicate. A team of Boston journalists worked tirelessly to find out that the Catholic church knowingly was running a massive organized childrape crime syndicate in Boston and around the world back in a time when the Catholic had a powerful influence. It also shows how Catholic followers tried to help the church get away with it.

Make no mistake, this is a movie about organized crime, featuring the Catholic church, the largest organized childrape crime syndicate in the history of the US, and in BRUTAL defiance of Jesus in Matt 18:6-14, where Jesus said childrape was unforgivable.

This movie shows how the Catholic church exhibited the same "code of silence" that the mafia has, without the honor, as they were protecting at least 249 "confessed" pedo-priests in Boston.

The pedo-priests in the Catholic church raped over 1,000 children in Boston alone, thanks to at least 249 pedophile priests, hidden and protected by hundreds of other priests, including Cardinal Law. (Only 90 were known at the time of the movie, but credits at the end show 249, and the number is now at least 271).

The Catholic church admitted 4,329 substantiated, accused pedophile priests in the US in their own John Jay report of 2004, and of course they lied. The number is well over 6,900.

And the Catholic church hid & protected 100% of their known pedo-priests, worldwide (Matt 18:6-14). Cowardly, rampant, unforgivable evil, in brutal defiance of Jesus.

Re: “The hit documentary Blackfish has a message as dubious as its methods

Your assertions about Keiko's rescue rehab and release effort are outright false and not sure where you got your information. The most unlikely candidate for release back to the wild, actually thrived for over 5 years in his home waters, gaining over 3000 lbs during his rehabilitation, mixing it up with wild orcas with evidence of mating behavior, swimming across the North Atlantic, and finally passing as not only the oldest male captive orca at the time of his death … but most importantly…. as the only captive orca to ever be successfully rehabilitated and released back to the 'wild' . There is an Award Winning Documentary titled:Keiko The Untold Story of the Star of Free Willy that sets the record straight. Watch it and learn the truth. Here are the links:

Re: “Danny Boyle directs Steve Jobs like a conductor — and the score isn't sweet

The poor box-office returns indicate Americans are very, very tired of Steve Jobs, and they're especially tired of movies about him.

Re: “Vin Diesel rolls 12-sided die, comes up with The Last Witch Hunter

Actor Vin Diesel the acting is very good, the story is an interesting one, and during part of its action-packed moments and some twists. Regarding the special effects are successful, and pictures and landscapes are very well done, not to mention the soundtrack, which is well thought out. Relations between the characters develops gradually, not the kind of film syrupy and full of emotion, but definitely not get bored. In any case, it is one of the best fantasy sites - SF lately, Vin Diesel very well get into character (an extra point to note is Vin Diesel). I expected to occur this film, since watching the first trailer, and I can say it is one of the few films that after watching the trailer site, and waiting premiers, I was disappointed, but on the contrary, I really was surprised. . From what I understand, it follows at least two parts. Worth seeing, and even recommend to the cinema watching.

Re: “In the dizzying The Walk, Robert Zemeckis uses 3-D to cast a spell of airy innocence — and a statement of artistic principle

I didn't see it in IMAX or 3-D. Even in normal dimensions at Malco's Smyrna Cinema, it left me breathless (and dizzy). I pity anyone who tries to watch this on a tablet or phone.

Film critic/historian Mark Harris tweeted some reasons people have given him for why they haven't seen THE WALK:

1. Afraid of heights.

2. Don't want to look at or think about the WTC again.

3. Already seen MAN ON WIRE documentary.

4. What's THE WALK?

And there's the fact that Joseph Gordon-Levitt, while a well-liked actor, is not much of a box-office draw.

Re: “In the dizzying The Walk, Robert Zemeckis uses 3-D to cast a spell of airy innocence — and a statement of artistic principle

I saw it almost alone at its last IMAX show, and if I'd missed it I would have kicked myself: it's the rare 3-D movie that needs every inch of its canvas, including the illusory depth of field the process provides. It's what all of Zemeckis' CGI experiments were leading toward, but magically deft (as is I WANNA HOLD YOUR HAND, a wonderful movie that it resembles in a lot of ways).

Re: “In the dizzying The Walk, Robert Zemeckis uses 3-D to cast a spell of airy innocence — and a statement of artistic principle

Too bad THE WALK has become a major box-office flop, the lowest-grossing Zemeckis film since his debut, I WANNA HOLD YOUR HAND (1978).

THE WALK is an excellent film. Try to see it on a big theater screen, if it's still playing locally. (I was the only person in the "audience" when I saw it yesterday.)

Re: “Moral certainty is the first casualty of gripping drug thriller Sicario

This is a terrific movie, and one of the few genuinely frightening films I've seen in years. It's downbeat and depicts a world without hope, but it's gripping all the way.

"Indeed, Sicario is daringly realistic about Kate's abilities — refusing to pretend, for example, that she's capable of overcoming a stronger, well-trained man in unexpected hand-to-hand combat."

We don't see that kind of realism much anymore, in the rush to depict female characters as butt-kicking action heroes. I accepted it. It made Kate more human and relatable. She may be an FBI agent, but she isn't Buffy the Vampire Slayer, or Elektra or the Black Widow. That is, she's not a superhero.

Re: “In the dizzying The Walk, Robert Zemeckis uses 3-D to cast a spell of airy innocence — and a statement of artistic principle

The Walk film envelops you in acrobat Philippe Petit's extraordinary adventure, although you know from the start how it will end. For more than four decades, spectacular "ride" by Petit, played here by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, was presented as "the most dangerous artistic act" of the century. And rightly so! At 400 meters tall, without any restraint, Petit faces void and the audience share the feeling, aided by 3D look excellent movie if the first two thirds of his The Walk you want to have a remote control to make it on Petit speak slower and slower, walk offers a great contrast, silence, concentration, elegant queens on display in one of the most beautiful and efficient sequences ever seen in cinema. A magic moment that freezes time, more than a moment that proves captivating 3D technology can be used not only to increase the fare at the cinema, The compulsory seen on the big screen in the best possible conditions.
