Has anyone else noticed that DVD credits often take longer to play than they should,
that is, they don't progress 1 second of stated time for each second of actual time?
What’s a DVD?

Survivors of Earth's second Ice Age live out their days on a luxury train that ploughs through snow and ice. The train's poorest residents, who live in the squalid caboose, plan to improve their lot by taking over the engine room.
I always wonder what it was like when a move like this is pitched.

I've watched some movies recently.

After "THE NATIONAL CENTER FOR JEWISH FILM presents," we cold-open on a man in a Na Nach yarmulke saying
"Here's how you bring light into the world - you get up in the morning and you scream 'GOOOOOOOOD!' "
(You realize later, if you're paying attention, that this was edited together. What he actually said
to scream was "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH! DIE YETZER HARA!," followed by saying "Na nach...")

That's the Kickstarter-funded Punk Jews from about 10 years ago, which Lakewood's public library got last year on DVD despite
it being up on YouTube. The film's segments were also uploaded individually, so you can watch these two and skip the rest:



(Note: This next one is about child molestation.)



The "documentary" Nazi Doctors is just an extended interview and some random shots of the ocean. Someone has uploaded it to
YouTube with German subtitles, where it has ~440 views. It's kinda on the meh side, but Robert Jay Lifton is an interesting guy.



A film that doesn't deserve naming included perhaps the most computer-people-infuriating bit of nonsense in film history -
a hacker "digging a wormhole in the deep web," giving him control of - what else? - all the USA's missile systems.

I watched several decades-old classics for the first time. One played fast and
loose with causality - if A causes B, which causes C, C can't be the cause of A.

I think The Insomniac (later called 24 Seven for reasons unknown to me)
is one of the worst movies I've seen. I'll sell it to you (on DVD) for $2.50.

As of this writing, I'm a little more than a third of the way through 1968's Yellow Submarine. It's strange.
