The jobs market is so bad in Mexico that thousands cross the border daily to get into the USA. The cartels would be better off setting up a dummy company and hiring IT guys to simply do the work, no questions asked.
Why go through all the extra trouble of kidnapping people and making them work? In the end, if they are smart, they'll figure a way to get out a message or screw you some other way. Much simpler and more secure to simply hire them.
Heck, they are IT guys. Get them a couple of hot women who don't mind getting naked and blow them, and those IT guys will do whatever you want. Much easier.
The film is going into production in 2016, which means that it won't see theaters until at least 2017 == THE YEAR THE ORIGINAL MOVIE TAKES PLACE IN.
That means this is no longer a sequel to a sci-fi movie, it's a straight up drama taking place in contemporary times.
And while Blade Runner got a lot right, Deckard makes a video-phone call from a phone booth because in 1980 no-one imagined a smart phone. Will they be using cell-phones in this sequel or will they keep to cannon?
And, having just seen the 2014 Robocop movie; I can honestly say that this upcoming film won't get anything right, as Robocop was a dull, i repeat dull action movie, missing everything that made the original one of the finest films of all time. There was no satire, no pathos, no snarky jabs at the media and American consumerism, and no humor. It was terrible. All it was, was a reminder of how utterly brilliant the original was.
My guess is that after this sequel comes out, we'll be trying to 'unsee it' and waxing poetic about how original and thought provoking the original was, and how flat, and full of fail this film is.
There's no button except "reply to this"
Is not the entire world.
Globally, it's the warmest year on record.
It would be nice if the NSA was using this technology to spy on the real terrorists; and by that I mean the people who actually do want to hurt you and steal from you -- CEOs and Large Banks.
I mean, there has not been a SINGLE prosecution in the great financial disaster of 2008, yet, I'll be there's plenty of cell phone conversations and text messages about breaking up bad mortgages into financial instruments of mass destruction, and reselling them as AAA+ rated securities.
Excuse me, but after 20 trillion dollars lost, and another 2 or so trillion given away to prop up a few banks who wanted to play along with the government (until such time that it became time to steal again); it seems to me that the NSA should be more concerned about these guys than a few rouge crazies who blow up the occasional civilian.
This was the unbelievable premise to a Korean film. It was almost as unbelievable as the last of humanity living on a train. But the fact that someone is now seriously talking about this incredibly stupid idea means that maybe I need to start building a very big train.
Can we all just agree that the NSA is the most nefarious hacking group, the most dangerous and out of control? That they make all the other so called "black hats" look like innocent little babies?
I think we all need to work together to get rid of this terrible, nasty, unpredictable hacker group -- for the sake of national and international security. They represent a clear and present danger to the future of this country.
"Who also know nothing about Unix/Linux"....
Who are the editors here, and have they ever even *used* a linux distribution????
With the proviso that he turn the usually butchered summaries into actual English sentences! We're not asking for much, just an actual summary that doesn't contain more than 30 errors.
That's what you get when your supplier is the lowest bidder, and zero checks and balances are in place, all in the name of profit.
Meanwhile, some MBA that set up the deal is relaxing on his Yacht. This is capitalism at work.
After all, they are expected to be flying for *another* 50 years....
Apparently; the FBI wants their cut of the insider trading and rampant fraud happening at most banks.
American *has* to have the biggest military on Earth.
We spend more on "defense" than the next 10 countries combined. We have spent more on a single fighter plane program (the F-35, which still doesn't work), than the entire defense programs of most other nations on the planet.
We just have our 'infrastructure" in a different way. Instead of building, we're looking to destroy. So when other countries make roads and dams, we make bombs.
Nigeria is laughing at us. I'm waiting for other nations to start sending us foreign aid.
Surely, next time I look up the definition of irony in the dictionary, it will contain the quote "Ted Cruz heading Science Committee" -- or perhaps that's an oxymoron, like "Military Intelligence" or "Jumbo Shrimp".
