Expedition X:  Thailand's UFO Cult (E03)  41 minutes   https://www.imdb.com/title/tt15377596/?ref_=ttep_ep3    

The Khao Kala Cult

It was started by a former Thai military officer (a sergeant major in the army) who has died. His daughter runs it. Same idea as a North Korean dynasty I suppose.

As a die-hard disbeliever, once I'd stopped laughing after the first ten minutes, I began to realise just how gullible these people must be, desperately looking for something to believe in. They all want to talk to aliens through meditation.

“People learnt how to communicate with the aliens” (quote from the leader‘s daughter) Why did I keep thinking about David Icke?

I see the temple is at Khao Kala, Phayuha Khiri District, Nakhon Sawan if you’re gullible and want to go.

Just recently released (June) and available online is Edge of the World, an adventure film based on the history of our part of the world. It's about the first white rajah of Sarawak, James Brooke. The events influenced Conrad's Lord Jim, Kipling's The Man Who Would Be King, and Monsarrat's The White Rajah. Shot in Malaysia. Official website with trailers here: http://www.samuelgoldwynfilms.com/edge-of-the-world/

A couple of quirky indie films

Little Miss Sunshine (2006). Esp. Toni Colette who was great in the Aussie 1996 movie Cosi

The Fundamentals of Caring (2016) with Paul Rudd  

Bot sure if they are truly indie films but not big budget nor too superficial  

If you like opera Cosi is a must and the inmates lead by Barry Otto Re brilliant

Saw "Old" last night. New movie from M. Night Shyamalan.

Entertaining, but he never managed to top "the sixth sense".

Haven't watched it yet, but I do think M Night had done his best work already.

I thought Servant was confusing nonsense.

Nell Tiger Free as Leanne, was blisteringly hot though...

Edit: I see M. Night was only the Executive Producer.

The Night was very good with him as Director.

Just finished "Cry Macho" with Clint Eastwood.

I was slightly disappointed.  Two of the main characters were cast with actors of so-so ability, one being former country singer Dwight Yoakam, who was fairly wooden in his role.

Clint's 90...and looks it.  Probably the last movie he'll make and while it wasn't outstanding, it was okay watching.
