Watched Food Inc. on Netflix instant last night. Not as shocking as I expected, but an enjoyable watch, for sure. Definitely surprised me when they were in a meat packing plant 10 miles from my house.

7.5/10

yeah, wasn't too shocking. especially, compared to the Fast Food Nation book (not the film, which sucked) that most of it is based on. it gets way more into the shitty ethics of specific companies which the film didn't really do (except for monsanto). that book should be a must read for everyone.

as much as i can appreciate the efford that those people put into such books and movies, the main point is proven in a short percentage of the runtime/ pages.

Not as bad as I expected - But still very average. CGI looked not quite right, Dialogue was really fast in the 1st half. Underwater battle scene was almost a complete rip off of the Death Star attack in Star Wars. 90% predictable - especially the final scene - 5/10

Why watch a movie you think is going to be bad?

hahaha

Speaking of Coen Bros. movies, did anyone see A Serious Man? I thought it was excellent

Also finally saw Hurt Locker which was also very good.

I'm a masochist.

Sometimes I'm not in the mood for a high concentration drama, serious film, so I put on some trash and relax.

Bit like watching reality TV when I have The Wire, Breaking Bad, Generation Kill, etc still sitting there unwatched.

I prefer quality trash tv like Jersey Shore. One of the funniest things on tv right now. I'm going to miss The Situation.

until they finish the movie, this is the funniest show that will NEVER make network tv.
