What are your biggest WTF movies?


What do I mean by WTF movies? I don’t mean shocking horror. I mean movies that just straight up confuse you. You can hate them or love them. But they confuse they hell out of you. The kinds of movies where people bring it up years after you saw it and your brain is immediately back to “wtf was up with that ending?”Southland Tales still does this for me. I’ve seen it twice and I still don’t know what’s meant to be going on. And I’m a little like it with Vanilla Sky (although I do get the gist of that).Just movies where, after viewing, you have to take a little time to process what you just saw and even after you still don’t fully get it via /r/movies https://ift.tt/3zClAzE

Siege of Calais (1346–1347)

Siege of Calais (1346–1347).
The Battle of Caen on 26 July 1346 was an assault on the French-held town by a force of archers and men-at-arms, part of an invading English army under King Edward III during the Hundred Years' War. This force, nominally commanded by the Earls of Warwick and Northampton, was eager for plunder, and attacked against orders, before the rest of their army was in position. Caen was garrisoned by 1,000–1,500 soldiers and a large number of armed townsmen, commanded by Grand Constable of France Raoul, the Count of Eu. The town was captured in the first assault; over 5,000 of the ordinary soldiers and townspeople were killed and a small number of nobles were taken prisoner. After sacking the town for five days, the army marched to the River Seine, and by 12 August they were 20 miles (32 kilometres) from Paris. After turning north they heavily defeated the French at the Battle of Crécy two weeks later, and commenced the successful siege of Calais the following week. (This article is part of a featured topic: Crécy campaign.)

Oryzomys dimidiatus

Oryzomys dimidiatus.
Oryzomys dimidiatus, also known as the Nicaraguan oryzomys, Thomas's rice rat, or the Nicaraguan rice rat, is a rodent in the genus Oryzomys of the family Cricetidae. It is known from only three specimens, all collected in southeastern Nicaragua (range pictured) since 1904. Placed in Nectomys upon its discovery, it was later classified in its own subgenus of Oryzomys and finally recognized as closely related to other species now placed in Oryzomys, including the marsh rice rat and Oryzomys couesi, which occurs in the same region. With a head and body length of 118 to 128 mm (4.6 to 5.0 in), O. dimidiatus is a medium-sized rice rat. The upperparts are gray-brown and the underparts are grayish, not buffy as in O. couesi. The tail is only slightly darker above than below. All three specimens were caught near water and the species may be semiaquatic, spending some time in the water. There is currently not enough data to make a proper assessment of its conservation status. (This article is part of a featured topic: Oryzomys.)

How can I get rich with no money or education?

 If college isn't your thing, you're not alone. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 31.6% of Americans who graduated from high school in 2014 had not enrolled in a college or university by spring of this year.

Although a college degree can lead to a higher-paying job that can offer financial security, higher education doesn't guarantee financial success. Read on to learn three ways that you can still make a big pile of cash without a college degree. 

1. Leverage compound interest
There's no better wealth-building strategy than investing early and leveraging many years of compounded annual returns.

Let's consider two people: Mark and Jim.

Mark didn't go to college, but he did start working right away at 18 and was savvy enough to put $2,000 annually into an investment over 47 years until he retired at age 65. That investment earned a hypothetical 8.5% per year and provided him with a $1.06 million investment portfolio at retirement.

Jim went to college, but because he was saddled with college debt it took him longer to start investing for his future. Finally, at age 26, Jim put $3,000 into the same investment Mark used, and then added $3,000 annually until he hit age 65. Although Jim invested 50% more per year than Mark, Jim's portfolio was worth just $814,790 upon retirement.

Why did Mark, who didn't get a college degree, end up with a bigger portfolio than Jim? Because of compound interest, or interest that is added to an investment that earns interest from then on. Since Mark started investing when he was younger than Jim, he earned years of additional interest that Jim didn't, and that interest over the decades resulted in nearly $200,000 in extra portfolio value.

The lesson to be learned from Mark and Jim is that when you begin investing can be more important than how much you invest.

2. Start a business
Many businesses are started by people who don't have a higher-education degree. This includes people who study trades to become electricians, heavy equipment operators, and plumbers -- high-paying jobs that offer plenty of potential for small business owners.

For example, the average U.S. plumber earned $53,820 in 2013, and many earn much more than that. If someone earning that amount of money takes advantage of retirement plans available to business owners, such as the simplified employee pension, or SEP-IRA, plan, then they can salt away a large amount of money over a career.

For example, the average person can invest the lesser of either 25% of their compensation or $52,000 in a SEP-IRA in 2015. If that self-employed plumber sets aside 25% of a hypothetical $53,820 in annual earnings from age 26 to age 65, he or she would retire with a $3.65 million portfolio -- trouncing both Mark and Jim's savings.

3. Watching your wallet
Most Americans have a hard time staying debt free, but few things can have as big of a positive impact on your financials as curbing spending and avoiding debt.

The average American household as of this month has over $32,000 in student loan debt and owes $15,706 in credit card debt. That means that thousands of dollars are going to paying principal and interest that could otherwise be invested.

Although most Americans without a college degree avoid that hefty student loan burden, they can still benefit greatly by being able to set aside money that would otherwise have to be used to pay off any and all debts.

Additionally, small daily expenses can add up to big money over a lifetime, which suggests that scrutinizing every dollar in your monthly budget makes a lot of sense. Budget-friendly moves include buying a gently used car rather than a new car, cutting the cord to save on cable fees, and avoiding high-cost vices such as smoking.

If you're not convinced that small daily decisions can add up, consider this: According to a study by WalletHub, smoking a pack of day over five decades costs the average smoker more than $1 million. That's a game-changing amount of money.

Tying it together
Sure, a college degree can open doors that can lead to more money for retirement, but plenty of people can retire rich if they follow a few simple rules, such as starting investing when they're young, investing as much as possible as consistently as possible, and keeping spending in check. If you follow that advice you could end up with an envy-inspiring portfolio, regardless of whether or not you have a college diploma.

Of the ten movies in the "Fast & Furious" series, the only five that are "fresh" on Rotten Tomatoes are the five with Dwayne Johnson in them.


Based on this week's news that Hobbs is no longer going to be involved in the (main) series, I took a look back at how the series has been received over the years via Rotten Tomatoes. "Fresh" on RT is 60%, and the series goes:The Fast and the Furious (No Rock, 54%)2 Fast 2 Furious (No Rock, 36%)The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (No Rock, 38%)Fast & Furious (No Rock, 28%)Fast Five (Rock, 77%)Fast & Furious 6 (Rock, 71%)Furious 7 (Rock, 82%)The Fate of the Furious (Rock, 67%)Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (Rock, 67%)F9: The Fast Saga (No Rock, 59%)The average tomato score for the series as a whole is 58%, with an average rating of 5.7.The average tomato score for just the movies without The Rock is 43%, average rating 5.1.The average tomato score for just the movies with The Rock? 73% Fresh with an average rating of 6.3. That's very nearly certified fresh (75%).I know that nobody necessarily watches these movies for their critical acclaim, but I think it's a pretty stark correlation between a "good" Fast movie and a "not so good" Fast movie. via /r/movies https://ift.tt/3kN8coe

The 1975 (2019 song)

The 1975 (2019 song).
"The 1975" is a song by the band of the same name and the first track on Notes on a Conditional Form (2020), their fourth album. In the song, Greta Thunberg (pictured) calls for civil disobedience in response to climate change, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Each of their three previous albums began with a track titled "The 1975" that used the same lyrics, beginning "Go down / Soft sound", but the lead vocalist Matty Healy thought it was important to give a platform to Thunberg, the "voice of this generation". After the recording in Stockholm, they released the song earlier than intended—on 24 July 2019. Proceeds from the song were donated to the grassroots environmental movement Extinction Rebellion, at Thunberg's request. The band opened encores at their performances with the song, before the COVID-19 pandemic halted their touring. It was received positively by music critics, many of whom praised the album's transition from the end of "The 1975" into the punk rock song "People".

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003) is a very fun and creative movie and I'm tired of pretending its not.


This movie got a lot of criticism when it came out. It bombed with the critics, is notorious as being so bad it made Connery retire, and being unfaithful to the source material. But after rewatching it, I was surprised by how many positive aspects it had, how some creative decisions were great, and how the story is very enjoyable.In regards to the Original Comic, which I love, I have this to say: It was IMPOSSIBLE to adapt that comic faithfully to a movie in 2003. MAYBE, you could make a very cool HBO Max tv show about it today, but if you were going to make it into a 2 hour movie, there's just no way.The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Vol. I is a long analysis of sexual repression, chauvinism and hypocrisy in Victorian England hidden behind the concept of "Victorian Justice League". Its a collection of highly dislikeable individuals who are flawed, broken or evil being brought together to serve as pawns in an evil government scheme. In this comic Alan Quartermain is a broken heroin addict, the invisible man is living in a boarding school raping teenagers, Mr. Hyde is a Gorilla monster eating prostitutes in Paris, and they all get together to fight Fu Manchu in a magically floating dragon-headed airship over London.You can't blame any studio in the world for trying to have a different approach. The idea of a super hero team consisting of Victorian literary figures is FANTASTIC, and you don't need the extra social criticism to make a good story with it.NOW, IN REGARDS TO THE MOVIE: The costumes, sets and props of this movie are off the charts. The Nautilus, and Captain Nemo's Car are an awesome design that is totally original. Everybody looks dope as hell in their costumes too. The Invisible Man, for example, just looks very unique, replacing the famous bandages for white powder. Dorian Gray's immortality is another example, the sand effects are very cool, giving the idea that in reality that guy is pretty much just a dusty corpse being kept magically beautiful and young on the outside. The futuristic (but not by a lot) weapons of the bad guys are all very cool. Mr. Hyde's CGI is still top notch for 2003 levels and I appreciate the use of practical effects. It doesn't hold up like Davy Jone's pinnacle of CGI, but its not obvious in any way.Every character is interesting. Alan Quartermain is basically the embodiment of British Imperialism in one single man, and he is utterly tired of it. He's tired of killing, but he's a killing machine, and so he has to go on one final mission to try and redeem himself. Mina Murray looks fantastic and I love that she's a powerful vampire who prefers not to use her abilities but absolutely can if necessary. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde have their own little story arc which I thought was great, Nemo is cool and stoic (he doesn't have to be anything else), Skinner, the invisible man is a likeable rogue who likes to joke but will get the job done (and you understand his real motivations because all he wants is a cure, he is a deeply cursed man who just wants to be normal again). AND THE ADDITION of Dorian Gray was brilliant. The beautiful, narcisistic, sociopathic immortal who used to have an affair with Mina (a different kind of immortal) was a very smart one. I like that he's a traitor, because it reminds the audience that many of these characters are villains. They are more Suicide Squad then Justice League, of course they will have their own agendas. And then there's Tom Saywer. I'm conflicted about him, not gonna go into that one.The story (which Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows totally ripped off) is that an evil guy known as the Phantom (itself a pulp French criminal character) is trying to start a World War by framing different European powers for attacks. He then will sell advanced weapons for both sides. The Phantom turns out to be Professor Moriarty all along. I really like this story. Particularly the fact that the entire reason the League has been brought together is so he may still samples of their powers to turn into weapons. I think its even better than the comic version where Moriarty just needs them to destroy his competition. This is a movie where they drive a Car through Venice to stop it from sinking.I. Love. How. Creative. It. Gets.In regards to the Connery thingI really don't believe Connery retired because the movie was bad. I think he retired for 2 reasons: He was getting old, and after the movie got bad reviews he felt he didn't understand the industry anymore. People have said this before, but after passing on the role of Gandalf and realizing the success LOTR had, he trying to get into the band wagon, only to see it flop critically. He didn't get this world of super heroes, X-men and wizard franchises and so he retired.I have heard people say that the 90s and the early 2000 had a high bar in quality, and that a lot of what was "bad" back then is pretty good now. I don't know if that is true, but I do know that The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen does not deserve the criticism it gets. It is fun, original and highly enjoyable.That is all, thank you for reading. via /r/movies https://ift.tt/2WjNKBv
