THiNC. Movie Spotlight #16

THiNC. Movie Spotlight #16… hohhum… just another Spotlight, with just another list of 5 more amazing movie recommendations. So boring. Meh. That’s all. Not much to see here at all.

COME ON! This is the quality content you should be dying for. And we are just giving it away like candy? Are you nuts? Look, that’s it. If you read this Spotlight, you are now required to donate $19.95 to THiNC. This fee will be filed under general pain and suffering, part and parcel with compensating management for the general ennui and malaise, while you receive such a high quality publication for “free.” See? Now, it’s not free. That’s what you made me do. Go on, click the link. Pay the fee. Don’t read any further, or our attack dogs will be at your door in minutes.

Persona – 2021 – Apparently all $19.95 of that fee you just paid will be going to Lisa. Why? Because all but one of these Spotlight recommendations comes from her. THANK YOU LISA. We are all in your debt. This troubling documentary focuses on the dangers of personality tests and how companies are using them to see where employees fit best. It goes into detail about the history of personality tests, and how companies are using the Myers Brigg personality test in job applications to determine if they want certain people to work for them. And as I’ve been applying for a metric butt ton of jobs each and every day, this film right here scares me to death. Watch it on HBO MAX.

Son – 2021 – Is this a mystery? A Thriller? Horror? Having escaped from a cult as a child, a mother must face her past when its sinister members break into her home and attempt to steal her eight-year-old son, David. Now the two are on the run pursued by a detective determined to save them both. Since his attempted kidnapping, something has changed in David and the boy has succumbed to a mysterious illness. Following her maternal instincts to save him, his mother commits unspeakable acts to keep him alive but is losing the battle. Soon, she has to decide how far she is willing to go to save her son. Watch Son on Prime.

Beartown – 2020 – Swedish Crime drama limited series (aka Björnstad). Based on the Fredrik Backman’s bestselling novel of the same name, Beartown explores the role a junior ice-hockey team has in a small community; the hope, the secrets that could tear the town apart, the courage it takes to go against the group and the consequences of how we raise our children. Watch on Prime via HBOMAX.

The Rover – 2014 – A decade after the collapse of the western world, Australia has become a lawless wasteland. As desperate outsiders pillage the country’s precious mineral resources. Eric, our hero, travels from town to town searching for signs of life. Then, one day, Eric falls prey to vicious thieves who steal his car. In the process of making their getaway, the thieves abandon Rey (Robert Pattinson), their wounded partner in crime. Meanwhile, Eric vows to reclaim his most-treasured possession by whatever means necessary, and forces Rey to help him track down the men who left him for dead. Rent it on Prime.

In Darkness – 2016 – With each spotlight, I try to bring one flashback movie from the THiNC. archives that might have been overlooked or missed in the shuffle. This week’s movie – In Darkness is hella-good. It’s a movie about a blind gal, well, and she… you know, can’t see stuff. Or something. Dude, just watch the movie. I can’t come up with some clever turn of phrase or, like, I don’t know, witticisms, and what not’s, ad infinitum. Look, I’m betting you didn’t even pay the $19.95. Why are you expecting wittiness then? Really? Exactly. Just click the link, watch the movie. And then, when you are done, come back and comment telling me I was right, that you should have watched the movie. Great. (Can’t believe you didn’t pay the $19.95. Unbelievable.)


Look, again… we don’t certify these movies like I do with my in depth walk-throughs. They don’t come with a money back guarantee. But you are grownups here. Right? Check them out – if you watch any of them, let us know here, and tell everyone reading what you thought of them. We’ll be better off for your guidance. And if you’d like to read more of our THiNC. Spotlight recommendations, you can do that right here.
