Atonement Official Trailer #1 – Brenda Blethyn Movie (2007) HD

Here is how The IMDb describes this movie:

When Briony Tallis (Saoirse Ronan), thirteen-years-old and an aspiring writer, sees her older sister Cecilia (Keira Knightley) and Robbie Turner (James McAvoy) at the fountain in front of the family estate, she misinterprets what is happening, thus setting into motion a series of misunderstandings and a childish pique that will have lasting repercussions for all of them.

Robbie is the son of a family servant, toward whom the family has always been kind.

They paid for his time at Cambridge, and now he plans on going to medical school.

After the fountain incident, Briony reads a letter intended for Cecilia and concludes that Robbie is a deviant.

When her cousin Lola (Juno Temple) is raped, she tells the police that it was Robbie she saw committing the deed. — Garykmcd


My Brother GC’s Surprise Attack | Two Women Turning People Into Supervillains? | An Old Murder And A Secret Underground Facility

Dream 1

I had this dream shortly after falling asleep.

This dream took place at night or early in the morning when it was still dark, and I was inside a bedroom with my brother GC.

My brother GC was possibly sitting on his bed as I talked to him from across the room, and during our conversation a chokehold was mentioned and I probably told my brother GC that I would show him how to do that chokehold (probably a rear naked choke) later.

At some point when I was walking away to maybe use the bathroom, my brother GC grabbed me from behind, and he pulled me backward on his bed trying to put me in a rear naked choke with hooks.

This caught me by surprise completely, fortunately his technique and the position that I fell in helped give me time to recover and defend before he could get it locked in properly, and then I broke out of it with brute strength.

I told my brother GC why it failed and that he almost got me, and I told him that he should have waited for me to show him the rear naked chokehold first instead of trying to try it on me in a surprise attack without practicing it first.

But I woke up.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that my former male semi-neighbor T, who used to briefly semi-live at The Semi-Abandoned house, was in the dream.

I was somewhere probably during the day when I met T, I was surprised to see him, and I did not want to see him or have anything to do with him but he happened to be in the area unfortunately.

Unfortunately T started to talk to me, but that is all that I can remember of this dream other than me not wanting to see or talk to T and I hoped that he would leave soon and that I would not see him again.

Dream 3

This dream took place outside during the day, and there were two women who either they and / or someone they knew seemed to have the power to turn / mind control / brainwash / whatever people into villains and / or supervillains who would have red eyes.

My brother GC, a Deadpool-like man and / or a Chester Conklin-like man, James McAvoy as one of this superhero characters (probably Charles Xavier), maybe several other people, and I happened to be approached by these two women who then started trying to turn / mind control our group into villains / supervillains one at a time.

One of the people on our group who they managed to turn / mind control into a supervillain was James McAvoy / Charles Xavier, and they used him to try to mind control the Deadpool-like / Chester Conklin-like man.

During the mind control attempt I remember some red ice and / or watermelon-like stuff in a solid flat square or rectangle formation slowly moving from the Deadpool-like / Chester Conklin-like man’s head, but he managed to resist the mind control attempt so it probably went back inside his head.

The Deadpool-like / Chester Conklin-like man seemed to resist the mind control due to his personality, he was talking and joking around a lot, and that seemed to help him resist the mind control.

The mind controlled / supervillain James McAvoy / Charles Xavier was surprised by this, he could not believe that someone like him could resist his powers, but I woke up.

Dream 4

This dream took place during the day at a somewhat fictional larger and nicer version of The BP Library, and I was there working.

At some point I walked over to a slightly fictional version of The Teen Section where I saw a female teenager with dark-color skin, and two women with dark-color skin and very short hair with one of them reminding me of my female cousin AE.

I greeted them and the woman who reminded me of my cousin AE started talking to me, during our conversation I noticed how nice the view was outside through the fictional large glass windows / walls in this area, and I noticed some fictional areas outside.

Outside the window there was a fictional small canyon like area that went under where the street that crosses by the library and The BP School Board should be, that area was raised with maybe a small bridge to cross over to the street that The BP School Board is, and the canyon-like area went below it and looked like it had been carved out so the two large sides were dirt mostly.

Past the right of where The BP School Board Computer Department should be I saw an underground sewer-like area that seemed to connect to another underground area that was below and in front of the street that crosses by part of the new courthouse areas that used to be The First Baptist Church, I am not sure if the female patron I was talking to mentioned this or if I saw something on the wall that mentioned this or if I just had a vision, either way I had a flashback or vision of a murder that happened in this underground area years ago back in maybe the 1950s or 1940s or something but I am not sure.

It was evening or night, there was an underground warehouse-like area there past the sewer on the right side, a thin male warehouse-like worker with light-color skin wearing his work uniform had murdered an attractive woman with light-color skin, and he disposed of the body in or near the underground sewer / underground warehouse area it seemed.

After the flashback or vision, I finished my conversation with the patron, and the next thing that I remember is going to investigate that area to see if I could find the remains of the woman’s body after all these years.

I can not remember if I found the spot or not, I just remember exploring the underground warehouse-like area until I found another hidden area that led to an underground facility, and while exploring it I saw a flashlight so I hid.

A security guard was patrolling, and then I found more security guards patrolling as I tried to sneak away.

At some point some new security guards, including a young woman with dark-color skin who was talking to her manager or boss, started to patrol in the area that I needed to escape to so I was forced to hid in a room.

Unfortunately the female security guard found me, but I managed to trick her into thinking that I was a new security guard.

She asked me where was my uniform, ID, et cetera and I came up with believable enough lies / excuses that she believed me.

She got her manager or boss, he asked me some questions and I lied to him too, and he believed me enough to get me an uniform and help me redo my paperwork (I lied and said that I guess someone lost my paperwork).

He got me signed up and everything, and eventually I became an official security guard at the secret underground facility.

My plan was to investigate the old murder and this facility, and expose them once I had enough evidence; and so I continued working at The BP Library during the day, and at the secret underground facility during the evening or night.

The areas that we guarded were probably only the second level so we did not get to see the active areas of the facility, and so we did not have any idea of what went on there or who else even worked there really it seemed.

While doing a security patrol and trying to investigate one evening or night, I caught at least one young woman and young man with dark-color skin sneaking around trying to investigate, and they told me that a family member of theirs had went missing and they found this facility and felt that it was probably connected with the disappearance.

I told them that I was also investigating this place and I asked them to join me and maybe become security guards here too temporarily, and so they did or I got them dressed in security guard uniforms as disguises.

While we were patrolling and investigating there was a security breech, a group of men with maybe light-color skin, and there was a bit of chaos and we got split up and I had to possibly fight or almost fight some intruders but I managed to talk them down.

They too were possibly trying to investigate this place, I told them that I was too, and I asked them to join me and the others.

But that is all that I can remember of this dream.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past

What is it?

The 2014 American superhero movie X-Men: Days Of Future Past.

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST.

The beloved characters from the original “X-Men” film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from the past, “X-Men: First Class,” in order to change a major historical event and fight in an epic battle that could save our future.

(c) Fox

What do I like about it and what would other people like about it?

I like some of the acting by Hugh Jackman and James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, and I like the action scenes with Quicksilver (Evan Peters); and I think that other people will like that as well.

Final Thoughts

I liked this movie better than many of the recent Marvel movies that have gotten too goofy and empty, I still did not like it as much as many of the critics, but I did like it somewhat more than I had expected; but I think that Quicksilver should have been shown more.

The end,

4-16-2012 | Dream Fragments | The Creators Or Creators?

The Best Science Fiction of the Year 9
(Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I barely remember some of my dream fragments from last night which all seemed to be connected, and a fictional science fiction TV show appeared in most of the dreams.

I had three dream fragments that were about three things, but I only remember that two of the things involved a presentation/or something like that would be used with the second thing to create a distraction/or something like that; but that is all that I can remember, and these three things appeared in some of my later dreams.

My other dream fragments involved me watching a fictional science fiction TV show on TV at a fictional apartment-like place near CC & City Hall in D, and this TV show followed a female and a male character I think who seemed to live in a somewhat futuristic place; and something was different about the World that I can not remember, I am not sure if it was aliens or what it was, but something was different.
