    Leap Of Faith: William Friedkin On The Exorcist: 9/10

    Excellent. Not a lot I did not know about the film but I always like hearing about movies especially from the director's point of view.

    I have still never seen the Exorcist. It is on my list of movies to watch.

    The Dawn Wall

    Guess I was under a rock at the time this took place. It was a pretty big story at the time but I didn't remember it. Anyway 2 men climbed whats labeled as an impossible wall to climb; 3000 feet straight up in Yosemite. Took 19 days because 1 of them was superior/more experienced than the other and the 1 dude really struggled on one of the sections and had to play catch-up.

    I gotta say that the feat is astonishing. The doc has some lulls as they obviously took a lot of rest along the way. But it is intense, at times exhilarating, and the backstory is fascinating. The main guy started climbing at 5 or 6 years old because his dad was a climber also. He goes pro. Along the way he met a girl who became his climbing partner. They got taken hostage at gunpoint when they were climbing a mountain in Asia. That story itself needs to be heard so I won't ruin more of it. It's crazy. They eventually married and stayed together for about a decade before they split. Oh yeah somewhere in there he loses half of an index finger which makes all of his unbelievable feats even more unimaginable.

    The guy he climbs the wall with was a guy he had never met who messaged him if he wanted a partner after he had posted that he was gonna attempt the climb. It was pretty cool seeing them develop camaraderie and to see them form such a bond. Dude waited like 6 days in a tent on the side of a mountain up 2000 feet for that other guy to finally conquer that one section. The abuse their bodies incur is pretty serious and to watch them persevere was inspiring

    I definitely recommend this as most fans of docs should really get engaged in it and find it well worth the while.

    No that's not a documentary. It is amazingly great though.

    Finders Keepers 9/10

    What a crazy story. Guy bids on an abandoned storage unit and finds a human foot in a grill. The guy whos foot it is finds out and wants it back and they go on judge Mathis to see who is the rightful owner. They are just a couple of rednecks.

    I have a firestick, but they do have it on Amazon prime for rent for $3.99, and $5.99 to buy. It is definitely worth it.

    It is. It is pretty interesting seeing what he was going thru in his final days and how he pretty much felt his acting career was over because he had trouble remember his lines.

    anyone watch Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel?

    I would say probably 6.5/10 - 7/10 It got to points where it just seemed to drone and I kind of zoned out but, it was decent.

    Just watched.

    Pretty meh. Hated the voicing of all the text and social media posts. Thought it was such a weird documentary. 4 hours of basically web sleuths only for all of them, in the last 30 minutes be like ‘well the lid was actually open... now it’s just a tragedy’... very click bait type documentary.

    I think the whole reason they went like that is to show how easy it is to jump to conclusions before waiting for all the details.

    I do agree the voice over for the text stuff was not needed but, it is what it is.
