Surviving Indie

Segments go on way too long, and there doesn't seem to be a focused theme or strong story connecting them. Also these indie movies seem to all move very slowly and be too self-indulgent to succeed as a general interest thing.* At least with ones like 'Indie Game: The Movie' and the Vice 'One Man Metal' ones there are some odd people, which makes it a little easier to stick with.


* relatively speaking; "indie" anything is niche, but these feel more like a niche of the niche

Have this itch to watch Wizard of Oz...

We've been playing with our Amazon Prime watchlist all weekend. We've already gone through Ender's Game, Battleship, The BFG and Gods of Egypt. After the young one is down for the night, I'll see about strong-arming the mister to watch Mad Max: Fury Road with me.

I was thinking about Revenge of the Nerds and how crazy it was (sexual assault, pornographic exploitation, exposing minors to sexual situations, etc.), and it got me to wondering what a Hollywood 'Nerd' movie would be like today. It'd probably be something like: starts with the gang waiting in line for the release of the newest iPhone, and they find out that Bing Bang Theory is going to be cancelled, so they rally the troops and get into all sorts of hijinx, till finally they overcome the evil corporate elites using data-centric arguments and tech-based gags.
