Would you go see this film?

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off recut as an “indie” coming of age tale.

Personally I don’t think I would.  If the film was recut in the same style as the trailer it would just be depressing as hell instead of one of the funnest/funniest movies ever.

Speaking of media; last night I listened to a new show (or at least part of it) on NPR called “Too Much Information”.  It was the firs time the show has been on the local station and it SUCKED.  The first 20 minutes was a sketch about how the CIA was using social media to control events in Egypt and Wisconsin, done in a faux “This American Life” style.  You know soft voices pregnant pauses filled with a little background music and expository narration by someone who sounds like Ira Glass.  I could live with that.  “This American Life” is fairly successful and imitation is expected.  It was just so poorly done and the material was so poorly chosen that it was painful.  Stay away from this one.
