Exploring a mix of ideas, and waffling on a bunch. Maybe I'll come back and edit a bit every so often.
A man travels forward in time to discover the future of Christianity.
An adorably heavy-handed piece of Christian propaganda.
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.
This original concept was written quite differently: Unplugging--2007-05-27
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.
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.
Reading, writing, practicing an instrument, drawing, painting, home improvement, car tinkering, a language, etc. We all have some thing that brings us joy, or that we simply want to be able to do. You must discover your art. Think deeply on this matter.
Some Buddhists have a ban on certain foods because they excite the senses.
A woman in a wheelchair goes on vacation alongside various religious tourists.
I couldn't get to the half-way point without succumbing to boredom. This movie has a kind of absence of flavour that drones on like one unwavering tone. I don't know how the hell this movie got into my inbox, perhaps as a reality-questioning movie. Maybe it got into interesting things later, but I was unwilling to give it that chance.
It had no explosions or lasers.
TL;DR: Deconversion, expatriation, integration, direction.
A man attains mystical powers originally for selfish reasons, but they taint with a life fraught with danger and demons.
Not a bad show, but the lead character's personality isn't attracting, and there's the old celestial stick-up-the-ass personality in another. The lead female is hot. Hotty hot hot.
This was cancelled after one season. Back in the 90s this show would have done well, but I'm guessing this genre has alternately been well-poisoned or saturated. This show has too much it has to be better than to catch enough attention to survive. I think that it's magic-fantasy was competing with an extraordinarily-strong superhero-fantasy genre.

- More-or-less based on Constantine - (2005 movie)
.. which in turn is based on the DC comic book series Hellblazer.
