The Economics of The LEGO Movie. 

I know what movie I’m watching with the kids tonight…

Oh yea, LEGOnomics! 

So many moies have come out and are coming out lately that are heavily libertarian/anti-government/questioning authority that I’m starting to wonder if it’s still fair to broadly label hollywood as a statist propaganda arm. 

Like I’ve mentioned before that in my 15 year experience working within the industry, most of the blue collar workers in Hollywood are very centrist and lean libertarian. It was only a matter of time that those feelings started to manifest themselves on to the big screen. 

…Or maybe I’m just giving them too much credit. 

Gal Gadot is really good looking, but Wonder Woman needs more muscle on her. 

Aubrey Plaza tho. 

Watching the Watchmen. Dr. Manhattan is a fantastic character. It pains me but I can completely relate to his growing apathetic view of humanity.

Man there were some cool shots in this movie.

No lie, Contact was one of my favorite movies. 

It had all kinds of geek science, aliens, libertarians and it even taught me about government secrecy and over spending (they fucking built two of them! TWO!). 

if you haven’t seen contact, do it tonight, nerds!

You keep what you kill.

Super stoked for the sequel.

It’s actually the third movie that’s coming out this year.  Pitch Black, Chronicles of Reddick and the new Reddick in 2013.

Earth: More mysterious, unfathomable and beautiful than any Sci-Fi movie, ever. 

I still don’t understand how some people deny climate change.

Actress Bebe Neuwirth (Cheers) narrates this eye-opening documentary that joins the ranks of films like Food, Inc. and King Corn as a call to arms for changing the sorry state of industrial food production in the U.S. Filmmaker Robert Bates chronicles the rise of the local food movement, interviewing farmers and chefs committed to producing fresh, healthy, and seasonal food grown close to home, including Alice Waters, Peter Hoffman, and Greg Higgins.


This documentary is amazing visually, and it focuses on farmers in Portland, Oregon and co-ops in NYC.  It’s really invigorating and inspiring.  Food is such an important part of our lives, and yet we spend less per capita than any other country in the world.  We also spend more per capita on healthcare than any other country in the world.  Pay your farmer or pay your doctor.
It’s available on Netflix for those of you interested.

Watching this now.

"Sirius" trailer.

Well, that was heavy… I’m sure all you “illuminati” people are going to love this. 


Finally, the second meeting with the Oracle. This is where Matrix Reloaded finally gets back on track. 

This series was all about the philosophy and kung fu. No need to make it a typical action flick. 

Watching Matrix Reloaded and I’m slowly remembering how shitty this script was for most of the movie. 

Like, why is there an orgy in the middle of the film for no reason? 

The entire Matrix trilogy had shitty CGI work. It was great for the time, but not for 2013. 

Wish they would remaster this series.
