Movie Reviews: The Rachel Divide + Time Trap

The Rachel Divide (2018)

A bizarre documentary about a bizarre faker who loves playing the victim. She's contentious and lies and wants to fulful the destiny she's laid out for herself: living as a black woman despite being white.

Rachel Dolezal is infamous and she does not care about loyalty, respect, trust or accountability. She lives her life in thrall to her lies. She writes a book and ignores how trust has been very badly damaged. She blames her parents and sticks to her lies. Her parents adopted other children. She has a suspension of moral judgement. Are any of her bitter accusations about her parents true?

The parents are hated. One of her sons is actually her adopted brother whom she somehow got custody of. She postures. She will not apologise. She's been publically shamed and is only 37?!? She keeps claiming to be the victim of 'hate crimes'. There are more accusations and she was outed after a PI uncovered her lies. She made abuse accusations and lost credibility causing the collapse of a trial.

She cannot made constructive decisions. Her parents revel in her outing. She has an ex husband who is the father of her son. She badmouths him and she's covered in fake tan. She has a new baby and the father is not involved. There is no moral deliberation and she paints her self serving actions as motivated by duty and virtue.

Rachel tries to lie on the baby's birthcert. She constantly makes bad judgement calls and has a capacity for deceit. She fakes her hair and she has a father figure. She's snotty. Her book was rejected by multiple publishing houses and she keeps lying and provokes debate and she won't stop lying.

Her acting out has a negative effect on her brother and his college plans. Her sons resent her choices and she Twitter trolls and claims more hate crimes. Things are emotionally damaging and people don't like her. Her book flops and she's unacceptable and upseting and she still claims to be the victim. At the end she puts on a black woman's wig and changes her name – she's an awful old idiot. This was okay.

Time Trap (2017)

A guy goes into a cave and irritating people yap. It is inherently difficult to care. An annoying kid tags along as the irritants look for the guy who went into the cave. There is talk of hippies and the fountain of youth. The cave looks like styrofoam. This was dull idleness and where is all the light in the cave coming from? There is no isolation and regret in this pointless film. The irritants finally notice that time passes differently in the cave.

This was pathetically fallacious and I've no idea what is going on in this unhappy story. This is a disppointment. There is no unease or terror and this was not deeply weird. There no murmuring tension. There is a pressing emergency and no growing sense of claustrophobia. People are morons.

The blighted cave has ominious secrets and there is a lack of grieving as bad things happen and the gang learn just how much time has passed on the outside. This has nothing new in the plot, tropes or stock type. There is bad VFX, a space man and absurd twists and exposition. There is no terrifying uncertainties and savages lurk in the cave (sigh). There is bad acting who were the people at the end? Who is in the ship? Was this a failed pilot? Why did TPTB forget about the air difference? WTF was this? It had an actual cavemen v astronaut fight.

Best Lines:

“You didn't get shot by any hunters? Awesome.”

“Is it imperative that he come?”

“House phone.”

“You haven't seen 'The Goonies'?!?”

“Climb freehand.”

“Went down the wrong hole.”

“Too much herbal fun in the 60s.”

“The wrath that is my mother.”

“Magic water healing story.”

“No one knows we're here.”

“No idea how to get back, no way to get back and no one's looking for me.”

“Everything we've known is gone.”

“Psycho Flintstones.”

“Space guy.”

“Grab the lightsaber thing!”

“Something's really really wrong here.”
