Love is a cruel joke that makes us think we can find happiness, before snatching happiness from us and smashing it into ashes, like a burned out cigarette.

Hotel Rwanda (2005)
This movie paints a dismal, depressing picture of humanity's pitiless violence towards one another. But I refuse to give up. There is hope for humanity. I keep telling myself that.

Alien 3 (1992)
Ms. Sigourney obviously meant for this sequel to be her last participation in the Aliens franchise. It is a dark, distopic vision of horror on a difficult prison planet. Like early Australia without the kangaroos. The only hope is for quick deaths that serve some purpose.
