The Prestige deserves a higher spot in the pantheon of Christopher Nolan movies

I rewatched The Prestige for the first time as an impressionable teenager and thought it was a really cool premise for a movie. I re-watched it again many years later to understand the nuances of the movie. The movie is so well written within its own theme. The pledge, the turn and the prestige. The breadcrumbs you see strewn throughout the movie to guide you to a climax you know is coming. I'd imagine a magician's trick is dear to him or her and revealing it ruins the mystique. But Nolan's direction with this movie makes know the final reveal a lot more satisfying. It allowed me to look for the change in dialogue, the misdirections and the visceral satisfaction that comes from oneupsmanship and what happens when it's taken too far.Are you looking closely? via /r/movies

Space Shuttle

Space Shuttle.
The Space Shuttle was a partially reusable low Earth orbital spacecraft system operated from April 12, 1981, to July 21, 2011, by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in the United States. Launched from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, five Space Shuttle orbiter vehicles flew on a total of 135 missions during 30 years. They conducted science experiments in orbit, helped build the International Space Station, and launched numerous satellites, interplanetary probes, and the Hubble Space Telescope. Four fully operational orbiters were initially built: Columbia, Challenger, Discovery (pictured), and Atlantis. Lost in mission accidents were Challenger in 1986 and Columbia in 2003, with a total of fourteen astronauts killed. A fifth operational orbiter, Endeavour, was built in 1991 to replace Challenger. The Space Shuttle was retired from service upon the conclusion of Atlantis's final flight.

Holy shit, Mandy.

I’ve been sleeping on this movie for 3 years.It’s like if Dario Argento and Terrence Malick had a baby and let Clive Barker raise it in the woods and fed it nothing but old DVD’s of Oldboy.Holy shit, Mandy.The colors, the imagery, the absolute dread, the tiger shirt, the eyes. Everyone’s eyes. Cheddar Goblin!And Nic Fucking Cage.I’d written him off years ago. My bad, Nic.It’s been a very long time since a movie pleasantly surprised me this much. Pleasant is probably not the right word for a movie such as this, but man, what a flick!I can’t stop thinking about it. via /r/movies

What's your opinion about The Last of the Mohicans?

I just saw the movie... And I have no words to speak. Music was magical, probably in my top 3 themes (2nd Braveheart, 1st Lord of the Rings/Hobbit ), plot was sooo good, acting was perfect and the end was... Omg I still have tears in my face. I had a long time to feel such a nice feeling, the excitement for the end. I wanna hear your opinion via /r/movies

‘ Excalibur’ at 40: A Different Breed of Blockbuster via /r/movies

What is an opinion you have that would get you automatically downvoted here?

I'll start. I think The Last Jedi is the best out of all the films of the sequel trilogy. I really liked how Rian Johnson tried to do something different than what is normally expected in a Star Wars film. I recall people complaining about The Force Awakens being unoriginal and copying A New Hope. I get why people hate it but let's give the movie credit for doing something different. The protagonist doesn't always have to win though the big bad was defeated, and I will admit that the cinematography is great. via /r/movies

The Boat Races 2015

The Boat Races 2015.
The 2015 Boat Races took place on 11 April. The Boat Race is an annual side-by-side rowing race between crews from the universities of Oxford and Cambridge along a 4.2-mile (6.8 km) tidal stretch of the River Thames. For the first time ever, the men's, women's and both reserve races were all held on the Tideway. In the men's reserve race, Cambridge's Goldie faced Oxford's Isis after the women's race, as a preliminary to the main men's race, while the women's reserve race, held the day before, saw Oxford's Osiris race against Cambridge's Blondie. Oxford's women won the first running of the Women's Boat Race on the Tideway, and the 70th overall, by ​6 1⁄2 lengths, to take the overall record in the event to 41–29 in Cambridge's favour. Oxford also won the men's reserve race, with Isis winning by 3 lengths. In the main men's race, umpired by Boris Rankov, Oxford (crew pictured) won by ​6 1⁄2 lengths, taking the overall record in the event to 81–79 in Cambridge's favour. The women's reserve race was won by Osiris by 15 lengths, making the overall record 21–20 to Cambridge.

Isopogon anethifolius

Isopogon anethifolius.
Isopogon anethifolius is a shrub in the family Proteaceae. The species is found only in coastal areas near Sydney in New South Wales, and to the immediate west. It occurs naturally in woodland, open forest and heathland on sandstone soils. An upright shrub, it can reach to 3 m (10 ft) in height, with terete leaves that are divided and narrow. The yellow flowers appear from September to December and are prominently displayed. They are followed by round grey cones, which give the plant its common name of drumsticks. The small hairy seeds are found in the old flower parts. I. anethifolius regenerates after bushfire by resprouting from its woody base, known as a lignotuber, as well as from seed. It was described by Richard Salisbury in 1796, and was first grown in the United Kingdom the same year. One of the easiest members of the genus Isopogon to cultivate, I. anethifolius grows readily in the garden if located in a sunny or partly shaded spot with sandy soil and good drainage.
