With Facebook being all about making sense of data for advertising purpose you would expect they would come up with some smart algorithm that would figure out the actual context behind posts. I'd expect Facebook to know when people are happy, sad, angry, drunk, silly etc. when they post and use that information not only for targeted advertising but for the benefit of their users.

Since when was 1981 in the seventies?

Well yeah, it was shot early eighties, and it started screening in 1982 but there was *a lot* going on before they started shooting, so the whole idea for the movie developed in the seventies.

Anyway, you're right - I therefore correct my previous statement by replacing "seventies" with "early eighties".

It will be so easy to screw up this one. Some stories fit only in books. I guess they can base movie on Neuromancer, but that's the whole different set. Just like Blade Runner - great movie but different story focus from the original book. And that one was made in seventies. You know, before theaters were filled up by Fast And Furious 1 to 16. It's a fail - almost certainly.
