Don't Sleep (2017)
The irony of the title is that it took me 6 tries to complete because it kept knocking me out. There's pretty boy enthusiasm in front of the camera but behind, they couldn't scare a bird. 11-Dec-2018
Uglier than Chucky and Annabelle and coalesced with contemporary American horror bites. The absurdity compels hilarity. 10-Dec-2018
Michael Jackson: Rich and Acquitted (2016)
A revisit of a triumph turned acrid. His legacy was as King of Horrors and to be represented mostly by white women. Was that Heather Longboobs playing MJ? 05-Dec-2018
God Told Me To (1976)
The commotion was executed to impress Hitchcock, obsessed beliefs create boundaries and we got to be impressed seeing a policeman do his job. 02-Dec-2018
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (2018-)
I kept waiting for something magical to happen then I realized I'm too old to wait and that I could find it faster elsewhere. 29-Nov-2018
Ross Lynch embraces likability again, Kiernan Shipka is Carrie White fascination and the darkness of the witchery overcasts the proceedings. Where's the fun? 16-Nov-2018
Selling Jets (2015-)
The art of the slippery salesman is lauded. The entitled humbly pretend it's a necessity as they validate that they are the biggest pillagers of the environment. 28-Nov-2018
It's high on a drug that doesn't exist. Nothing/everything makes sense. I stick with it because I want to see the child saved and because messy daddy keeps it angry and moving riotously. 27-Nov-2018
Mathilda May is other world perfection. The story is complete, the make-up impresses and the Brits exalt conspiracy authority. By end, the filmmakers are overcompensating and padding the screen with extras when all we want to see is daddy tackling the destructive seduction of the ideal woman he created. 23-Nov-2018

Ornithologist, The (2016)
I can admire nature and ogle the choice of men but the film required an explanation. 19-Nov-2018
Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars (2014 -)
They are us. 16-Nov-2018
Is the show exploitative? Yes. Are the doctors quacky? I think so. No one seems to be getting any durable tangible assist. There are always a few celebrities that make it conclusively clear that this is a gig and a paycheck. The show was undefined until clutter tempest Tara Reid showed up. Her ambivalence and stubbornness was suspect until the show's retribution exasperated her mental fragility and awoke her acumen. Survivors have a way of upsurging any challenge and Tara has established that entertaining is her ammunition and the show is willing to detonate to bring us another season. 03-Aug-2016
Shocking video of two churches pushing ex-gay therapy may help end the practice
While more US states prepare to ban so-called ex-gay conversion therapy, the harmful practice of trying to change someone’s sexual orientation remains legal through the UK. And a recent TV report has captured disturbing footage of two UK churches claiming that God can “fix” gay people.
An ITV investigative report revealed that Journey UK and World Mission Agency – Winners Chapel International (WMA-WCI) both advocate the idea that one can pray the gay away.
A man from Journey UK spoke to an undercover ITV reporter about how certain activities can help lessen one’s feelings of same-sex attraction. A pastor from WMA-WCI told the reporter that gay people are under Satan’s control and compared positive media depictions of gay people to Nazi propaganda.
The WMA-WCI pastor also said a 20-minute prayer over the reporter, even speaking in tongues, presumably attempting to “heal” him.
Education Dept. Proposes Enhanced Protection For Students Accused Of Sexual Assault
Education Secretary Betsy DeVos announced sweeping rules on how colleges handle cases of sexual assault and harassment that she says will fix a "failed" and "shameful" system that has been unfair to accused students. In what the administration is calling a "historic process," the proposed rules aim to significantly enhance legal protections for the accused and reflect a sentiment expressed by President Trump that men are unfairly being presumed guilty. More than a year in the making, the rules replace Obama-era policies on how to implement Title IX, the law barring gender discrimination in schools that get federal funding.
The new rules are drawing both applause and anger.
Among the most significant changes is that schools can make it harder to prove allegations by raising the level of proof needed. Instead of requiring only a "preponderance of the evidence," as the Obama administration had directed, schools could demand "clear and convincing evidence." And many schools may well be forced to raise the bar, since the regulations also require that the standard for students be the same as that used for faculty and staff.
