A kickass preacher is infected with a power, and for some reason there's a vampire.

Maybe it has potential, but it's scatterbrained and kept sliding into slow moody boringness.

A highly-virulent weaponized virus breaks containment and wreaks havoc.

It starts strong then goes downhill into some odd religious stuff. Generally terrible later on. Worth watching if you're into this genre.

A comedy where wannabe-terrorists are too stupid to terrorize properly.

A terrible movie which I couldn't finish. British humor is already kind of crappy half the time, but this is incredibly weak.

A man travels forward in time to discover the future of Christianity.

An adorably heavy-handed piece of Christian propaganda.

Projects > Time management >

You are chained to things that make you unproductive. Unproductive not only in terms of your responsibilities but also your desires. They are a strain not only on your time but also on your peace of mind.

Unplugging targets a wide number of associated things, freeing up time and considerations to be put toward things which are specifically-desired. Instead of effort being put toward problems, passion is put toward desires.

This action is meant to take the whole day, and be regularly repeated. It is meant to be a defined branch of time management and a fundamental philosophy.

The right way to go about all of this would be to print this off. Better yet, write it all out by hand; make it yours.

Two priests, exiled to an island in the middle of nowhere in Ireland, try to make due.

A mid-1990s British comedy with a laugh track. If you aren't positive you can handle that, then pass. It has only a few moments, but is otherwise crap.

Ancient Relic - (2002 movie) image

Entertainment > Movies >

Archaeologists discover an ancient body with impossible technologies, giving evidence of a time-traveling journalist.

Quite a good movie! With a three hour run time, it was an easy binge and one that strings together seamlessly. A great story, and while it has some storytelling moments, it has unforgiving realism for its characters.

It has only a couple of awkward "like it's totes real, yo" moments because of some characters, but thankfully it's well-balanced and is overall absent of religion aside from the major plot point.
