I don't know for sure what format it was originally but "Kasparov: My Story" or something is really good. I watched it on youtube. It is about 7-8 hours long.
Thanks! I haven't seen that one!
Here is the link if you need it.
I'm still working on this one, as it seems that I can take only small doses of Kasparov. It is very interesting though! I've gotten through probably two hours of it. It's kind of the same as another long series that was recommended here, "Bleak House", which I've watched four episodes of, but the camera work makes me have to take a break from it. It could be another month before I get through these films
There's Something About Mary, and Meet the Parents; a couple of my favorite comedies.
The Last Waltz 1978
The last live performance of The Band, directed by Martin Scorcese. Many consider it one of the greatest rock documetaries. I couldn't find the full movie with iterviews, but I did find the full album of the performance.
I watched the original non-english version. It did have some quite disturbing scenes, but I liked Salander's character and Blomkvist's character.
Yeah, I think that's the best part of the movie/book, the dynamic between Salander and Blomkvist.
The original subtitled version doesn't have Finchers estethics in the cinematography, but other than that I found them pretty similar. Perhaps Rooney Mara's character Salander felt a bit more convincing at times, but that's def the hardest role to play in the movie.
The Humanitarian War (2012)
This film investigates the claims of Human Rights organizations and N.A.T.O., regarding Libya last year, and where the "evidence" was gathered by these organizations. One of the most telling parts of this excellent film, was when it was disclosed that all the evidence is hearsay, with much of it being provided by the Libyan Transitional Council, with their Ministers of Media, Education, and the Oil and Finance Minister! I highly recommend this film.
What theatrical releases of stand up comedians do you like? I think George Carlin was my favorite.
George Carlin and Bill Hicks are my favorites.
You know, on the Bill Maher's show, the woman who was arguing that "God", or whatever, gets her through the day, is very typical of what I have argued against: The god crutch. I hate it. It is as if she doesn't understand what a belief in gods are. The people who believe in god are not saying that they are having the same thoughts as someone who doesn't believe in gods, but they characterize their belief in a different way. Rather, these people who believe in gods, think entirely different from what people who don't believe in gods, think. She probably thinks she's communicating to them by "understanding" them. She's not. She doesn't understand them, and she's as delusional as someone who believes in gods
I've noticed that atheists present better arguments than believers. I have a friend who feels that embracing religion is a renounciation of rational thought. I think this is why they present better argumets. They have a world view rooted in the tradition of the Renaisace and reason.
Religious belief is based on belief in things that can't be proven and often don't make sense. It's hard to argue this type of belief in a rational way.
I guess i fall into the agnostic category. I don't know if there's a God, and I don't think the matter can be resolved.
That is very clear and succinct. In studying philosophy, I have to pay attention to some of the clever rationalists in scholastic thought, such as Aquinas and Augustine. And I also have a solitary place in my heart for Kierkegaard, who was a very poetic person whose realization of hopelessness crippled him, and made him believe in gods. Maxims, such as "I believe, because it is not rational", came from the works of these philosophers.
I feel for them, for sure. I understand what they see before their "leap of faith". But depression and despair is no excuse for neglecting an honest assessment of knowledge. It is a distraction and an obstacle to knowledge, whatever value one places upon it. In my opinion, of course
