Movie Review: Transcendence

 Transcendence (2014) Poster

Spoiler Alert

Activists w/ philosophical issues against advanced AI research decide to take matter into their own hands and start killing the researchers. One (Johnny Depp) barely survives but is failing. His wife manages to connect various areas of research and downloads Depp into a computer. When the terrorists attack to try and delete him, she uploads him to the net where he expands his capabilities exponentially, eventually setting up base in a small town where the locals become 'Transcended', healed of all ailments due to nano-tech and connected to Depp's mainframe. His wife begins having second thoughts and agrees to sacrifice herself in order to upload a virus which will result in the crash of every computer system on Earth. 

Acting and special effects were pretty good.  Story was engaging.  I found it ironic that the terrorists, in trying to save humanity, caused the deaths of hundreds of millions of people (not mentioned in movie) w/ the collapse of all communications, power, transportation, etc..  Had they not committed their attacks/murders, the two areas of research would not likely have been connected for many years and then in a sealed, self-contained environment, not uploaded to the net. Also, even w/ their attacks, they were sloppy and inefficient, which is why the wife was driven to save her dying husband. A guy managed to smuggle in a handgun w/ bullets coated w/ radio-actives and then only put one round in him?  Why not go w/ an explosive vest and take out a bunch more of the associated scientists as well?  Of course that wouldn't have made for a good movie though.

I enjoyed it. Definitely worth a watch but probably won't add it to the collection. 3.5/5 stars.

It's Election Season In Illinois, Shiny Distractions Aplenty

In order to pull attention away from the collapsing Illinois economy, the loss of thousands of workers from emigration and leaving the workforce (although that's marked down as a decreased unemployment rate), school systems in crisis, their constantly raising fees and taxes (see a pattern yet?), the dingbats in Cook County, supported by Gov. Quinn of course, have put forward a 'non-binding' referendum to ban 'Assault Weapons' on the upcoming ballot.

I'm sure my dead grandmother will vote early and often for this.

Just to show you how stupid the legislators in Cook County/Chicago are, this is part of the referendum "require universal background checks for firearm transfers".

Um, they've already done that.  They passed a UBC law for IL along w/ CCW last year. 

Of course the measure was supported 'unanimously' by the Chicago-crats on the board and the 'Republicans' INO's voted Obama, I mean 'Present'. 

There is a poll.

Why 'May Issue' Is Inherently Discriminatory

Because those that push for it discriminate.
Yesterday, after a three-year-long investigation, the federal government appointed a monitor to oversee the police department in city of Newark, New Jersey, after the U.S. Justice Department uncovered a “pattern and practice of unconstitutional policing” in recent years—including during the years that Chicago’s police superintendent Garry McCarthy served as that city’s top cop, from September, 2006 to May, 2011....
Among the Justice Department’s findings:
  • “Approximately 75% of reports of pedestrian stops by NPD officers failed to articulate sufficient legal basis for the stop, despite the NPD policy requiring such justification.”
  • “The NPD stops black individuals at a greater rate than it stops white individuals.”
  • “In more than twenty percent of the NPD force incidents reviewed, the force as reported appeared unreasonable and thus in violation of the Constitution.”
  • “The Internal Affairs Unit (“IA”) sustained only one civilian complaint of excessive force out of hundreds received from 2007 through 2012.”
And 'Streetlight' McCarthy has brought that same level of competence to the CPD which, along w/ Cook County and the state is facing hundreds of lawsuits for blocking CCW permits.

1st Amendment, 2nd Amendment, Chicago Hates Them All.

Sen. Durbin, the IL senior senator that is pushing for a bill that would make the gov't the arbiter of just who is an ' authorized journalist' and hence protected via the 1st Amendment can certainly be trusted to be non-partisan in such decisions.
QUINCY - U.S. Senator Dick Durbin is not happy with a radio ad ... that focuses on the wage gap between men and women working on his Senate staff. So unhappy in fact, that he is threatening legal action against a Quincy, Illinois radio station airing the spot.
And in the city proper, it's business as usual...

22 shot in Chicago over 12 hours
He was found in the front seat of a car, shot in the neck, back and shoulder in an alley..
someone opened fire from inside a passing dark vehicle.
someone in a passing white van opened fire
He was shot in an alley
two men approached and at least one started shooting
someone walked up and shot him
The man in the car got out and started shooting

iow, almost all gang/drug related.

A Harsh Awakening

Couple in NJ follow the traditional advice of gun control "Give them what they want and they won't hurt you" and end up being beaten/raped anyway before starting to fight back. 

They feel safer in Ohio, they said, adding that their experience drastically changed them and their views on a number of issues, including gun control. Before, both didn’t feel the need to own a gun. Now, they are proud gun owners and keep a handgun in the bedroom.
“I didn’t want a gun. I specifically didn’t want one,” Dittrich said. “I was very much opposed to hav[ing] one, and I guess I got the realization that the police really can’t protect you. They can respond, and they can protect you once they get there. But, you’re on your own.”
This is the reality of gun control.

CPD & BATFE EIEIO

Holder is sending 7 ATF agents to Chicago to "coordinate efforts with U.S. Attorney Zachary Fardon as well as federal, state and local law enforcement and community partnerships to reduce illegal gun trafficking and gun crime".


So the head (Holder) and agency (BAFTE) responsible for letting hundreds of firearms 'walk' (iow get smuggled) into Mexico resulting in countless Mexican and several American deaths are now going to 'reduce illegal gun trafficking' in Chicago?  What are they going to do?  Arm the gangs w/ even more guns so they can trace them? 

I'm sure I heard a cheer coming from Englewood.
