#2,258: The Barkley Marathons

Demolition - ★★½☆☆
I was expecting Nightcrawler II, but that's not this. This character has feelings somewhere. Man, Nightcrawler was good, huh? You guys remember Nightcrawler?

My Big Fat Greek Wedding - ★★☆☆☆
I thought this was a perfectly satisfactory movie, a well made indie, and I can imagine why it was a success, but it wasn't really for me.

Eye in the Sky - ★★★☆☆
This movie is like a visual depiction of an argument, with both sides ever heightening their 'oh yeah? well what if--' examples.
- Oh yeah? Well drones can't see inside!
- Oh yeah? Well what if you looked inside with a separate set of neat little drones?
- Oh yeah? Well what if you just can't ever know it's safe because innocent people could get in the way after launch?
- Oh yeah?

The Barkley Marathons: The Race That Eats Its Young - ★★★★½
As I doc I found this enjoyable because it does a good job of teaching me a lot about a thing I'd never heard of but find interesting. That's the ideal documentary.

As a movie, I found this really refreshing because normally when I watch a movie, I never stop believing that there's some small percent chance that maybe one day I could be some kind of a spy, or an ace detective, or Spider-Man, or whatever, but there's no part of me that thinks that I could ever complete this race. I'm always trying to learn a few things that I can use just in case I get stuck in the past, but there's no part of me in which it even occurs to me that maybe I might try to do this.
