Morning – First to Forget a Wrong

Morning is the time when we get ready for the day, unless we are on vacation. It’s a time a little boost of coffee, some music perhaps, and an infusion of vision for what lay ahead in the next 8 to 12 hours. I’m learning the health value of meditating in the morning. In addition to meditation, I am reading that shifting from task to task should be done gradually. Would you shift your car from 1st to 5th gear? Hardly. What about the reverse? I think not. The morning is a time when we “break fast.” We should be putting healthy things inside our bodies. We are organic vehicles.

Morning can be a time to forgive relatives and friends. Maybe we can make the relatives friends again. It’s up to us to forget bad memories. We can rake the garden for healing. It is not in our control to heal things but we can way lay the plains. Maybe being the first to forget a wrong that was done is a good idea in the morning … and the last to remember. A fight will only live as long as it is brought up. Maybe in the morning when we are calm and peaceful we can accept that it’s okay to let animosity and vengeance die. Some things go away with time but even if they stay we can stave them off for a while at least in the morning.

Self Actualized

Whether you are religious or not you have to live with the choices you make. Perceptions mean nothing. The self-actualized person looks in the mirror both in reality and through the soul and says “THAT is my stuff, I take full responsibility for it.” No blame can exist when you dare to live in absolute reality.

Test 3

This film plays on the note of us all trusting the places we fall asleep. What if you weren’t safe? How would you know it. The brand of psycho in this film knows all your comings and goings and he is a bit like Santa in that he knows when you are sleeping, he knows when you’re awake. Of course, this IS a horror film so there won’t be any presents brought by this guy. It’s a stalker film tried and true and quite scary at times when it’s not being creepy building suspense.

Sleep Tight (2011)
Mientras duermes (original title)
Not Rated | 1h 42min | Drama, Horror, Thriller | 14 October 2011 (Spain)

You wake day after day to the comfort and security of your home. But how safe is it really?
Director: Jaume Balagueró
Writer: Alberto Marini (screenplay)
Stars: Luis Tosar, Marta Etura, Alberto San Juan

I recall a sick twist like this in “The Gift” 2015. Since “Sleep Tight” is from 2011, I have to wonder somewhat if Edgerton did some borrowing there. “Mientras Duermes” is the original title and Spain style Spanish is spoken.

The deaths in this film are heinous. Especially the boyfriend of the main actress. As she suffers from the villain putting poison in her toothbrush and other toiletries, her boyfriend gets it worse … well until the final scene. 

This is a solid horror film from the “psychotic individual stalker” type. It’s creepy and scary but also fun and exciting if you like this genre. Remember, you need to be subtitles enabled to watch in English. If you speak Spanish, you’re good to go. 8/10

Discussion Questions: 

  1. You could compare Cesar to Norman Bates. What do you see alike and different about he and Bates?
  2. Do you see a way the boyfriend could have better handled it?
  3. Why do you think Cesar chose Clara?

Test 2

It’s great when you see a sequel with your favorite character doing more of what you loved the first time. Due to mediocre writing and an attempt to be flash over story, this film quickly veers away from the first film. All is not lost though, the visuals are indeed amazing and enjoyable.

Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018)
PG | 1h 52min | Animation, Adventure, Comedy | 21 November 2018 (USA)
Ralph Breaks the Internet Poster
Six years after the events of “Wreck-It Ralph,” Ralph and Vanellope, now friends, discover a wi-fi router in their arcade, leading them into a new adventure.
Directors: Phil Johnston, Rich Moore
Writers: Phil Johnston (screenplay by), Pamela Ribon (screenplay by) | 6 more credits »
Stars: John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Gal Gadot

One reason this film might have appeared out there and disjointed was because there are two directors. I really don’t see that much. It could be like having 2 kings or 2 cooks on one stove. Like they say, “too many cooks spoil the broth.”

The visuals in this film come at you non-stop. I had a feeling about the visuals like I did when I saw “Trolls” for the first time. It was all inventive technology with a human element. In other words, it wasn’t just like a strobe in your face. There are so many amazing visuals but probably my absolute favorite was at the end when all the little Ralphs form on monstrous one. That most have taken tons of code and animation science to pull off.

To close, this sequel is highly visual and very exciting. The story and it’s character dynamics are very flawed in my opinion. I really felt they though the visuals were enough and so they skimped on story. It is rather good though and I would recommend you take your kids to it. It is nowhere near the masterpiece of the original “Wreck it Ralph” and that was a let down. 6/10
