Here's someone who doesn't get enough credit.



Javier Botet, a guy born in Ciudad Real (in spain), was at age 5 diagnosed with the condition Marfan syndrome, which  is "a genetic disorder of the connective tissue. The degree to which people are affected varies. People with Marfan tend to be tall, and thin, with long arms, legs, fingers, and toes. They also typically have flexible joints and scoliosis"




But instead of living with the fact he had this condiction in a negative way, he used it to become a film star of sorts.

He played the main creature in the movie mama, the monster in Rec, the crocked man in the conjuring 2, a ghoul in crimson leak, and recently slenderman.






He pretty much took his condition, and made full use of it for horror, making a career from some of the recent horror movies out there.

Guy deserves recognition, as much as they do for andy serkis

Now the argument could be made its just fans hyping up and over reacting to something someone did, like making the remark that she should try smiling and how people blew up at this.

However the main actress playing her, Brie Larson, took offense to that too and posted a load of creepy smiling faces for pre existing marvel movies, making a mountain out of a mole hill since the characters in those movies actually do smile.

Also, this was ms marvel from the 90s.



and this was same character, as captain marvel recently.



and even though the latter came from sjw marvel, the character could still smile, which made sense, because the character is suppose to be a powerhouse, so having a cocky grin made sense.

instead, the movie trailers so far shown a wooden faced actress, and the magazines are playing up 'STRNGETH OF WAMAN!', something they surprisingly didn't need to do for wonder woman.

De hel van Tanger.
Translated: The hell of Tangier.

Another belgian film. I've been seeing a lot of those it occurs to me.
Two busdrivers for tourist-trips are made to transport half a bus of moroccans from antwerp to Tangier, Morocco. What they don't know is that it is a set-up. Their boss, allong for The trip, has 355 kilograms of drugs, i forget which kind, hidden on The bus on the way back.
The three of them wind up in jail, in horendous conditions. What follows is years of The protagonist in declining health without any care amongst crooked abusive guards, torture, corrupt lawyers and judges and impassive bureaucrats. The belgian government also fails to act and it takes 2 years and three months before The lead is eventually, and without any given reason, released.

Based on a true story. And it Happened less than 25 years ago. The man The lead portrayed never fully recovered and died in 2007. For this movie, The lead had to lose 35 kilograms and then regain it bit by bit as they shot The movie backwards.
Now that's dedication in an actor.

Real good film. I praise and recommend it fullheartedly.

Yes, in the approximately 10 seconds we see her face in the trailer, she's not smiling.  And?

I'm pretty sure they did that for Wonder Woman, too.  Ether way, who gives a crap about what these people say?

I mean, the movie hasn't come out yet and you're already gearing up to hate it and treat it as SJW propaganda...like you do with a lot of movies now.  Don't you get tired of these tempests in a teacup?  Don't other people get tired of these petty political spats, too?  Remember when we could watch a superhero movie, and not politicize the hell out of it?  Wouldn't that be nice for a change?

"Won't You Be My Neighbor? 9/10

Nostalgic yet timely documentary about Fred Rogers. His focus on love, kindness, and sincerity was countercultural then but seems even more radical today. Very moving and well done.
