It is not a joke. We once again have new domain. Solarmovie.is it is this time.
Were we "hacked"? No. Why then you may ask? Lets just say we have our reasons.
And don't worry. Solarmovie.so is still our domain. But Solarmovie.is is better and you should go there (here? :) if you don't get automatically redirected.
Sorry for inconvenience.
Ok, as we all know Solarmovie is now officially blocked in the UK, By ISP's BT, EE, O2, Sky, TalkTalk and Virgin Media so to combat this you will now have to use a proxy or a VPN to access the site, the best solution will be a VPN as it will still let you login to your account, for anyone that is confused about VPN's and how to set them up, I have made a quick video on how to do this, it's only a couple of minutes short and should be of help to everyone looking to get around the blocks and be able still view your favorite sites.
OR, if this method is too complicated, you can download an already pre-configerd VPN. Just check the Links below, which offer a wide range of VPN's to choose from.

And of course we nailed some nasty bugs.
Just finished the 2nd Season premier, and I've got questions concerning Marty's condition. In the finale of the 1st season, it shows that his parents and sister may have been returned by revealing a birthmark on his neck (I think). Why haven't they explored into this? The new ep shows him questioning where he's been for the past week and that he himself may have returned.
Wow, ya only a 5 month off season. Pretty ****** cool in my book. This is one of my fav shows and I'm really glad it's back and with a longer season too, at 13 eps. I really like Kurtwood Smith, he's a high caliber actor. Watching this show makes me wish it were possible, to see passed loved ones again. I hope it doesn't come at some "price"... Just finished, and I'm left with questions. But great ep. 9/10
Loving the show. Immortality has always been one of my favorite plot devices. I'm not to fond of the cop-woman; didn't like her in Do No Harm so maybe it's just a little transference. Meh, who knows. Hopefully she'll grow on me but for now, she's BUGGING ME SO BAD.
Anyways, lol, another great episode. I can't wait to see what they've got planned for this "mystery caller".
I really like this show and have watched it since season 1. The coaches seem like they want to help the contestants, the banter between Adam and Blake can be entertaining and unlike other shows like American Idol.
There are no bad auditions and the artists are judged on their voice rather than appearance.
This season Pharrel and Gwen seem like they'll be good coaches.
@Misabel13@BrightonMatt@meeksbam@miffersss OMG! tonight@9pm is the night. the reveal at the end of the previous episode was a shocker for all of us.i'm so excited to see are we going to get a fixer tonight or they have more twists for us.stay tuned guys.you don't won't to miss this.
@miffersss they came back with bang.that was Awesome season premiere.for some reason i had goosebumps but that reveal at the end was the biggest moment in the premiere episode.my jaw was dropped.even with his condition he is STILL a Genius.every minute of premiere was enjoyable.
A lo-fi contemporary gay relationship between two young guys in Chicago. Tough call. There are a couple of great moments but the story gets bogged down by a murder sub plot and the continual need by gay story writers to capitalize on angst and depression and drug use. This could have been and uplifting brilliant character study. Again.
@Sklug i actually haven't watched it yet. i'm still going to. don't get me wrong i'm sure it's a dam good movie, but at the same time; i do NOT stand for American imperialism and propaganda campaigns. Osama was trained by the c.i.a. :p
it isnt everyday that someone makes an overtly anti religious movie for an american audience.
this one i have mixed feelings about.
it reminded of cloud atlas meets stoker meets sucker punch. the story consists of several fragmented story archs linearly progressing towards each other, but never actually touching. it isnt until the end that some of these concurrent realities converge.
this is one of those movies that is so overt in it's message that i wonder if there are actually messages within the message. for instance, the story of the vigilante is obviously an anti religious distopia. the story of the man looking for his son presents a religious parent figure (father) searching for his son who has mental delusions. both are portrayed in a negative light. the story of the artist opens with the girl and her mother having a therapy session with a religiously affiliated counselor, who is mocked by the daughter in her comment "amen". clearly we as the audience is suppose to derive a negative reaction towards religion. but it doesnt stop there. the ending where the delusions collide with reality and the story of the king that left all clearly paint fantasy as something negative. religion, it seems is fantasy as well and hence is also painted negatively as something to be avoided.
Now here is where it gets weird. the masked man is the most delusional one of all. the artist too is also living in a self induced dystopia. both are miserable people with nothing to live for (the artist even frequents suicide). So the negative undertones regarding religion seem to be negated with the portrayal of the non religious folks - i.e. the most miserable characters in the movie. In fact, the most grounded character in the movies are the ones living a religious fantasy. the father searching for his son, the janitor, and even the young man's mother that shows him the pictures of julia all seem much happier and together than the characters without religion in their lives. in fact, when the young man discovers his friend julia is a fantasy, he doesnt care. he wants to keep his fantasy, but she wont let him.
so what am i to make of this. on one hand religion is painted as a self inflicted delusion and a destroyer of societies. it is portrayed as something for the weak, the helpless and the hopeless. this isnt something to be proud of. the atheists, or at least the non religious people are portrayed as miserable as well, while the religious as people are portrayed as grounded and happy, though they are falling prey to delusions.
I think this movie attempted something very subtle that most people missed. i think this movie attempted to justify delusion. i think that the message of this movie was "delusions arent healthy, but can make us happy".
i believe this movie to be an attempt to rectify criticism of religion with criticism of the lack of religion. i as an atheist have been told thousands of times about what im missing, about how great it is to have god, and how depressing it must be to be an atheist. having atheist friends i have also seen how many of them have fallen into alternative delusions from religion. things like attempting to create socialistic utopias or "getting off oil". But the irony is, they are oftentimes happier than i am. my religious family members too are oftentimes happier than iam because of their delusions (sorry if that's offensive religious readers).
I will end with this. i believe this movie is addressing the rift between the new atheist movement that is convinced that religion is the root of all evil (a delusion) and the religious movements that are convinced religion is the answer to everything (lets put god back into school, that'll fix our economic problems!).
This is my formal disagreement with those like dawkins and hitches. i believe (and i think the movie agrees with me) that the new atheism is attacking the symptom of the problem, and missing the root entirely. religion isn't the issue, our ability to fool ourselves is the problem, or is it? the movie leaves us with that question. are delusions that make us happy justifiable? is self deceit a part of the human condition?
i dont know...
