Episode #402 – The Net

Due to the ongoing refusal of the AMPTP to negotiate in good faith with the WGA or with our union brothers and sisters in SAG/AFTRA, we’ve decided to hit pause on discussing more current releases, since (in our own bizarro way) it could promote that work. Instead, we’re using this opportunity to go back in time and discuss some silly releases from the past, starting out with some films 90’s kids will remember. This week, we’re discussing 1995’s Sandra Bullock techno-thriller The Net, a movie about the horrors of the internet that seemed prescient and terrifying at the time, and now just seems kind of goofy, considering that the horrors of the internet were way different than those it imagines.
