Saw "Broken City" last night didn't like it too much; based on crime and politics in NY which I'm not really into but wanted to check it out since Russell Crowe and Mark Wahlberg are in it. I also lost focus because of Chandler's situation/free agency.

8/10. damn thing gave me a lump in my throat towards the end.

swartz reach had such a tentacled impact on not just technology, but humanity. MIT caved into political pressure and the feds made an example out of him, even as he was an integral part of voicing opposition of SOPA that was eventually defeated in 2012.

you don't need to be into computers/internet to enjoy this documentary. it involves things that can affect us all. it can potentially allow third world countries, many bright and aspiring individuals, to study journalistic and medical reviews for free. publishers are making millions in the meantime. access to knowledge shouldn't be subjugated. it shouldn't be only accessible to the privileged or the wealthy.

you have real hackers in anonymous and lulzsec actually looking to cause harm, gain credit card numbers, steal identities, make revenue, etc all during that time...and they went after swartz who went after the institutions and infrastructure.

Coffee Town 8/10

Good light comedy. Some cliché moments. At times easy to guess what's next. But it succeeded at what it meant to be - light hearted and funny. This was one of the funniest movies I've seen in a while. Special nod to background characters. Had a great time watching this one.

Amazing Spiderman 2 - 4/10

Pure crap from beginning to end. Probably my least favorite Spiderman movie (comparable to Spiderman 3). Worst movie I have seen in a theater at least since Pacific Rim.

The other Woman 1/10

Horrible movie. Had to stop 20 minutes in and I just skipped to the last scene which was cringe worthy.

I don't know how I missed City of God for so long but finally caught in Netflix the other day. Terrific.







Speaking of Netflix, if any of you guys missed Short Term 12, it's on Netflix right now, easily one of the best (if not the best) movies of last year. Stellar.

The 13% on RT is unwarranted

It's not the greatest movie, Keano Reeves is awful, but this movie does have its moments imo

It's got good visuals too.

I absolutely agree with lamar about short term 12. Brie Larson is amazing and the whole film just works. I've been listening to the score for weeks and it still has an affect as a stand alone.

Love her in this. The kid from Newsroom is perfect too. Not to be missed.

i will back the brilliance of short term 12. sounded pretentious and hipster-ish when i first saw the trailer/description, so i waited a week or so until i was bored.

pure raw human emotion. at times, it felt like you were almost watching a first take documentary. i watched a couple interviews after and kaitlyn dever deserves a lot of credit as well. she's nothing like the role she played.

i can't really say anything bad about the cast at all. nate egregiously ticked me off at one point but i guess he was just naive.

definitely felt like someone was cuttin' onions. the only thing i worry about is the replay value. i feel if you watch it a couple times, you've sort of had your fill.
