Rabbit hole #10 - Lost in translation?
It’s been a while since we’ve taken you down our rabbit hole discussions and we've missed you guys!This week we're focusing on international films, their American remakes and how we feel about them. Do you see subtitles as a 'one-inch tall barrier'? Do you really have an unbiased opinion when you watch a remake if you already know the plot? Is it the language or is it the cultural differences that make it all so "foreign"…Cue very dramatic music...For all our rabbit hole sources, head to our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/GroundhogDames

Rabbit hole #9 - The Truman Show Delusion
We’re extremely excited about this mind-bending episode. What makes a 'reality' alternate? It doesn't necessarily need to be in the 'Sci Fi' genre, so is it more about a tone, feeling or vibe? We've homed in on The Truman Show Delusion, informally known as Truman Syndrome, a type of delusion in which the person believes their life is staged & scripted. Films like Bliss, The Congress, The Matrix, The Truman Show, Coherence and many more have acted as gateways for us to experience the world of alternate realities. With the Information Age giving us possibilities as well as problems; is ignorance bliss? Which pill would you take, Red or Blue?Disclaimer... Without getting too philosophical, our common understanding is that we are all in our separate realities with individual perceptions of our one shared physical reality. We’re not physicists so these are just our views on it. We’ve based our discussions on films where characters live in the same reality as us but are thrown into an alternate separate reality. Changing what is considered real for the character and their world. See you down there Neo 💊 🐇 🕳 For all our rabbit hole sources, head to our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/GroundhogDames
