If you like movies with all talking in it, this is one for you. It's about a guy spending a day at a cabin with colleagues from a college. He tells them he's been alive for 14,000 years and they ask him questions to see if he can prove it. I think this movie would be in my top 50 of all time. Very well done.

 
At one point he reveals that he was Jesus, and that he was just trying to teach people what he had learned personally from Buddha, the woman at the cabin who is a Christian just about flips out
Added to my queue.

Amazon Prime didn't have Fermat's Square... but, I read all of the brain-teasers, and I got all but the "conception" one (too much actual math LOL).

Rewatched The 13th Warrior. How that turned into a sleeper is beyond me. One of the great medieval action movies. Probably because it wasn't a cast of American actors.

don't tell teegre that, he recommends it! It sounds like a type of movie I'll enjoy.

That's a shame, man.

1. Sometimes movies just don't "agree" with everyone. At least you gave it a go.

2. Twenty-eight minutes is right before all the good stuff started happening. (Upon a second viewing, those banal first thirty minutes are a LOT more entertaining: there are subtle clues, which aren't noticed the first time.)

I took the toddler to see The LEGO Movie.

It was a little over her head, but perfect for ages seven & up... including adults. Anyone who has ever played with LEGOs will get a few extra laughs.

It was a solid B until the last fifteen minutes, where the plotline switched around a little (the very last line of the movie is genius), and thus, earned a solid A.

I use to love legos! My mom said that when I grew up I could have one room filled with legos, one filled with g.i. joes, and one filled with wrestling toys. I would never have to put any of them away and I could stay up all night and eat as many cookies as I want. I love it!

Who's the genius that made the movie 'Nebraska' ? No seriously, it's a good movie. The star, Bruce Dern, knocked it out of the park...

i was VERY generous giving it 28 minutes. even before i stopped watching i jumped ahead a few times to see if ANYTHING was actually happening. nope. just more boring dialog.
which brings me to another point. the actors. i thought they were pretty bland. they seemed to me like they were just reading their lines. lacking emotion and chemistry. i just didn't think they were selling their characters to the audience...

It's funny that different people can see the same movie and have such opposite reactions to it. Everybody has such different tastes, and with seeing a movie, a person's mood and frame of mind while watching make a big difference. So does a person's level of expectations of a movie before watching it.

Personally I like movies with a lot of talking, but can understand people getting sick of a movie that is all talk, but they exist!
