"Freaks" is soooo disturbing. It is considered a "pre-code" film, so they could push the envelope a bit more, and man did they ever! The final scene with Cleopatra being turned into a chicken woman, is still one of the most unsettling things I've ever seen (and I've seen Britney Spears try to act!)
You are right. It was terrible, but now it turned into a cult/classic movie

Io vorrei potermi risvegliare da questo spaventoso incubo ma tu... Tu come stai?
I'm watching The Hobbit:The Desolation of Smaug, on HBO right now. It's a great addition to that series.
I watched both Hobbit movies around a year ago and was more or less mildly amused by them, particularly by the first one. But what I remember most about both was just how over the top the action scenes were. It seems like now that CGI is (supposedly) so realistic looking, the directors of big budget films show absolutely no restraint in their handling of them... to the point where you just can't suspend disbelief anymore.
Anyway, you might try going back and watching the first film in the original series and comparing it with the two new ones to see what I mean.

lasttrain929: Thank you eloneen, until yesterday I had never heard of these insects. They live a strange life. Not sure about Circada ice cream or pizza though, not for me.....

eloneen: Timeblue I hope you enjoy it! It was sunny and in the 90s here most of last week, with some rain. Today it's cloudy and barely making it into the 60s. Crazy NC weather! ::m1809::

orioles70: with warmer (HOT) weather, the cicadas have gotten noisy. A local news reporter used an app on her phone and said it registered in the mid 80s for dbs (hearing protection recommended). They're not quite that bad in my yard.

orioles70: I was driving to the dump today on a road called Beaver Dam Road when what should cross the road but a pair of beaver (mother and child). Guess they named that road well.
