02.19.15Netflix Ugh. This is a movie about how cellphones and the Internet are ruining the world and how parents just don't understand their children. I guess Jason Reitman is 75 all of a sudden? This movie seems so old and curmudgeonly to me... I feel like it's maybe trying to be this generation's Fast Times at Ridgemont High or something but Reitman's distaste for humor and joy taint the whole movie in lame melancholia. I don't need to see another movie about depressed people making poor choices even if there are a bunch of floating screens showing me how they write out texts and facebook posts. I feel like it checks more boxes on the indie trope list than the Skeleton Twins did. There was a moment when I was like "Well this must be almost over" and I checked the time and I had 45 minutes left. That's half the movie. And you know what makes things worse? I fundamentally agree with a lot of what this movie has to say and it's STILL unbearable.
