During the Civil War, the average height was about 5-7 and the weight average weight of a soldier was about 140.
Some historians believe that from averages of when Jesus was alive that He was approximately 4-foot-9 to 5-fo...

Anyone seen one or more of these? What are your thoughts? I see they get pretty high ratings on IMDb, the first and last receiving 8.1 and Sunset garnering an 8.0.
They are pretty spread out, so it looks like it covers quite a lot of territory: Sunrise (1995), Sunset (2004) and Midnight (2013)....

What’s your thoughts about this series?
I just caught up with the series, going through all of the episodes, and when you watch them all rather quickly, it’s sort of laughable at times.
Some of it is not very believable. That said, the finale to Season 3 was one of the best episodes of just a...

Anyone seen this movie yet? It looks totally different from Primer, it is a "romantic thriller science fiction film", but it still sounds like something worth checking out. Apparently no dialog for the final third of the movie.

Basically, a man shuffles through a dream meeting various people and discussing the meanings and purposes of the universe. It gets pretty high ra...
