As someone who has been getting into video blogging (a.k.a. vlogging), I love finding out about people through video. The documentary gives great insight into other people’s lives, and an upcoming documentary looks to be very interesting. With executive producer Zach Galifianakis, the film takes a look at Joseph Garner’s challenge in living off of Craigslist for a full month.
Read the synopsis below:
In a time when America’s economy and sense of community were crumbling, one guy left everything behind–to see if he could survive solely on the support of the 21st century’s new town square: Craigslist. It was in this climate that 29-year-old Joseph Garner cut himself off from everyone he knew and everything he owned, to embark on a bold adventure. Armed with only a laptop, cell phone, toothbrush, and the clothes on his back–alongside the hope that community was not gone but just had shifted–Joseph began his journey. For 31 December days and nights, everything in his life would come from the Craigslist website. From transportation to food, from shelter to companionship, Joe would depend on the generosity of people who had never seen him and whose sole connection to him was a giant virtual swap meet. Would America help Joe? Could he survive with nothing, apart from the goodwill of others?

In an ideal world, each superhero to hit the big screen would get the same amount of time on screen, especially with a movie as huge as The Avengers. However, this is not an ideal world, so there are some differences Hypable pointed out in the screen time each Avenger got during the movie. Who do you think got the most?
Captain America: 37:42
Iron Man: 37:01
Black Widow: 33:35
Bruce Banner: 28:03
The tally, conducted by entertainment website, Vulture, shows quite a difference in time from Captain America to Hawkeye. Could there be inequality among The Avengers? And it leaves one question to ask: Would there be more equality in The Justice League?
Thanks, folks, I’ll be here all week.
I’m a HUGE fan of the first Monster’s Inc. (Yes, I cried at the end of it, deal with it!) so to hear that not just one, but FOUR new trailers of the upcoming sequel ‘Monsters University’ were released is great news! Actually, these four clips are apparently different cuts of the full teaser trailer, set to be shown before the movie, Brave, coming out this weekend. But I know it’s hard to wait that long, so start watching below!
You can watch the rest of the clips over on the Monster’s University Facebook page.
It used to be that when I thought of Pixar, I thought of this unstoppable movie-making machine that couldn’t be stopped. Movie after movie, Pixar just got better and better. While I still think highly of Pixar, the studio isn’t looking too good ratings-wise. Reviews for Pixar’s upcoming CG animated movie, Brave, have been trickling in, and on Rotten Tomatoes, the current score is 73%. This is a “Fresh” rating, but what happened to the days when Pixar had no movies that went below 90%?
My heart sunk when I saw Pixar get its first “Rotten” rating with Cars 2, and I know Rotten Tomatoes isn’t always an accurate indication of a movie’s quality (especially when not all reviews have come in), but I’m starting to feel this way about Brave. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still excited to see the movie, but the Disney fan in me is hoping the magic of Pixar doesn’t fade away.
What do you think of the Brave’s score so far?
Because Battleship just wasn’t enough…
Stay tuned for Connect Four: Dropped From the Sky.
