Are We Failing At Empathy?

Screenwriting is an art of fakery. Put a few words of convincing jargon into the mouth of a cop or a corporate lawyer or a starship commander and the audience will believe you are an expert in criminal justice or antitrust law or the rebel alliance on the planet Xenon. Having written a screenplay about historical events in the Middle East doesn't make me an expert on the region. But spending all day every day at a desk trying to project myself into the m ...

You might only know The New Yorker for its often-bizarrely captioned cartoons, which once famously flummoxed Seinfeld’s Elaine Benes and served, for many years, as Roger Ebert’s white whale. But the Condé Nast-published news magazine has also been home, for nearly a century, to celebrated pieces of longform journalism, humor, and opinion writing, including work from people like Tina Fey, Woody Allen, Calvin Trillin, Malcolm Gladwel ...

The critics who judge film are wildly left. That’s obvious from their glowing reviews for any leftist film with even the mildest touch of art; it’s glaringly obvious from their reviews of Dinesh D’Souza’s latest documentary, America. Here are just some of the reviews – and note that these pans are based entirely on the politics of the film: Rafter Guzman, Newsday: “You could bother debating D’Souza on history and semantics and rudimentary logic, but chances are you’d end up fe ...

The Benefits of Being the Worst Movie Ever Made

Source: Miller-McCune

Movies made for the purpose of entertaining audiences went mainstream in the early 1900s. More than a century later, IMDB has more than 250,000 titles in its database and, even then, it’s safe to assume that some have been left out. No one person can watch them all. The average person can’t even watch all the good ones—the Criterion Collection, commonly thought of as the gold standard for foreign and classic films, has re-released over 700 movi ...

Source: The Atlantic

The audiences who crowd theaters in the summertime know they can expect one thing from any given “event” movie: a showdown. As in, badass hero faces badass villain in a fight to the death. As in, impressive stunt choreography, wire works, or judicious photo-realistic CGI. As in, good guy dishes out punishment, bad guy returns same, and (spoiler alert) at the last possible second, perhaps with the help of a just in-reach weapon, good guy vanquishs his rival.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
