The 5th Wave (2016)

Aliens invade Earth.  First they hit the world with an EMP, then floods, then a super-avian-flu and the attacks just continued wiping out much of the human race.

When the Army arrived at a camp of survivors, everyone thought they were saved, but it was just the precursor of the 4th wave, aliens on the ground.

Good movie, I’m looking forward to reading the books.

IMDB Score 5.2/10

Love on the Run (1979)

The fourth installment of The Adventures of Antoine Doniel is a bit of a disappointment.  Half of the movie is clips from the previous three movies and the plot of the new material is pretty boring.

IMDB Score 7.1/10
Amazon Score 4.3/5

 

The Rise of the Fourth Reich (2009)

This was a good book if a bit disjoint.

He covers the globalist movement that brought the Nazis to power and how they are still running the world. But he also rants about NutraSweet and psychiatric drugs.

This views on world politics, banking and multi-national corporations make the book.

Amazon Score 4.5/5

Stolen Kisses (1968)

A grown up Antoine Doinel (and actor Jean-Pierre Léaud) appears in his twenties as a man kicked out of the military and takes a number of jobs as he lives his life.

This is a sequel to The 400 Blows and is the second film in The Adventures of Antoine Doinel.

Another good film and slice of life.  This is in French and subtitled.

IMDB Score 7.8/10
Amazon Score 3.4/5

 

The 400 Blows (1959)

The story of a boy who has troubles at home and acts out along with his best friend.

This is from the Criterion Collection and is in The Adventures of Antoine Doinel, also in the Criterion Collection.

Not a Hollywood blockbuster, this is a good little slice-of-life movie about childhood in France.

IMDB Score 8.1/10
Amazon Score 5.0/5
