Re: 10th Annual Historical Challenge, 24 May - 5 July 2019 List Thread

Title in BLACK = from my own personal DVD / Blu Ray collection
Title in BLUE = Seen on TV during regular programming.
Title in GREEN = Seen in movie theater during current theatrical run.

May 31
1. Knightfall, S2
(2019) Time period: 14th Century, A.D. Episode: God's Executioner

June 1
2. Agora
(2009) Time period: Alexandria, 4th Century, A.D. The story of Hypatia, a greek philosopher, mathematician and astronomer who must face opposition from the new Christian religion.

June 9
3. Rocketman
(2019) Time period: late 60's to early 80's. As more than 40 years have passed since the events of this biopic I felt I could include it here. The life of pop star Elton John told in a quasi-musical.

June 20
4. Air Strike
(2018) Time period: WWII. Chinese production about the Japanese air raids on China during WWII. Bruce Willis headlines a Chinese cast of actors who are all so hammy as to defy belief. Willis himself phones in his performance as a hardened flight commander presiding over young pilots who are eager to prove their worth. Lots of melodrama and the type of comedy you find only in Asian movies. Some halfway decent CGI air battles kind of save the movie.

June 24
5. Pawn Sacrifice
(2014) Time period: 1950's-1972. Based on perhaps the most famous chess match in history between the volatile American Bobby Fischer and the Russian Boris Spassky. Chess fanatics decry the inaccuracies that in truth can only be spotted if you're a chess expert. The most glaring is portraying Fischer's as erratic and paranoid, which he was, but this behavior came later in his life. As a movie it's a fascinating look into this cryptic sport which is the ultimate mind game.

Re: 10th Annual Historical Challenge, 24 May - 5 July 2019 List Thread

May 23:
01. I'm Going to Break Your Heart (Canada) (2019) ☼ - Theatre

Jun 02: 3rd Annual Okotoks Film Festival
04. Are You Volleyball?! (Iran) (14 min) (2017) ☼ - Theatre
Soldiers and refugees spend a day playing volleyball over the fence meant to keep the refugees out of their own country.
05. Irsendwer (aka Someone) (Germany) (14 min) (2017) ☼ - Theatre
Heartbreaking true account of how a Russian soldier sexually assaults a young woman who refuses to identify him afterwards as they subdue the German army at the end of the second world war.
06. I Am Rare (Alberta, Canada) (10 min) (2018) ☼ - Theatre
Story of an family in Edmonton as they dealt with the discovery of their child's extremely rare decease and a health care professional's almost deadly mistake during his care.

June 05:
08. Real Boy (2016) ☼ - Kanopy
Documentary covering the transition period of a young transgender man as he deals with opposition from his own family.

June 06:
09. Saul fia (aka Son of Saul) (Hungary) (2015) ☼ - Library BD
Just when you think every aspect of the holocaust has been covered in the movies, along comes the Hungarian film Son of Saul to show otherwise. Yes, we know that 6,000,000 Jewish people were put to death in the concentration camps, but how did that take place? Well for one thing, the German soldiers didn't do it themselves. No, they forced other prisoners to carry out the actions. Heartbreaking and intense, this film tastefully depicts this aspect of these atrocities as seen through one of these men as he desperately tries to give one of the victims a proper burial.

June 07:
10. Rocketman (2019) ☼ - Theatre
Elton John's biopic.

June 09:
11. For the Bible Tells Me So (2007) ☼ - Kanopy
What does the bible really say about homosexuality and how are Christians reconciling that in their own lives when they are confronted with LGBTQ members in their own families?

A woman lives 60 years as "Larry" before deciding to come out as who she really was, Lisa. Losing the support of her family, church and job, she seeks for acceptance in the only thing she has left, her cycling community built around the LifeCycle: Ride For Aids charity ride across California.

June 11:
13. All Is True (UK) (2018) ☼ - Theatre
Shakespeare returns home after writing his last play and watching his London theatre burn to the ground only to finally face the bigger issues affecting his family.

June 13:
14. Meeting Gorbachev (UK/Germany/US) (2018) ☼ - Theatre
Gorbachev is interviewed by Werner Herzog about his life and the end of the cold war and archival footage of events beyond the iron curtain are shown. Gives a really good glimpse of what was going on on the other side during and after the wall came down.

June 15:
15. Hitchcock/Truffaut (2015) ☼ - owned on iTunes, watched on Surface in flight
Documentary about the influence of the 1960's book of the same name written by French New Wave film maker covering a number of interviews he had with Hitch about film making, on the film making of its fans such as Scorsese, Anderson and Finch.

June 17:
16. Cry-Baby (1990) ☼ - owned on iTunes, watched on Surface in flight
Funny musical spoof about the rivalry between the "Drapes" and the "Squares" in the 50s as the singing, misunderstood greaser Johnny Depp steals the girlfriend of a school letter-man which results in most of the town having to pick sides. Think Grease but with (at the time) lesser known actors and even sillier humour. I liked it more than I thought I would.

June 19:
17. Recorder: The Marion Stokes Project (2019) ☼ - Theatre

June 24:
18. Tolkien (2019) ☼ - Theatre
