5.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't Anyone Talk Face to Face? April 24, 2013
Format:DVD
Doesn't it seem like everyone is wired these days? Doesn't anyone talk face-to-face anymore? This recent trend has permeated everything we do; if you don't believe me, take a look: LOL; BFF; OMG; W8; BTW; BYOB (kidding...); FYI; ETA; ASAP; RSVP (well, okay... not EVERYTHING is recent)....

With this in mind, brace yourself for an exciting film that addresses our digital world, with grief counseling chat rooms, cyber bullying, on-line sex, and identity theft, plus general e-mails, texting, GPS units and Facebook. It is NOT boring; there isn't a wasted scene, an unnecessary line or a plot hole left unfilled. Kudos to director Henry Alex Rubin ("Murderball" - a terrific documentary) and scriptwriter Andrew Stern ("Return to Me" - one of my favorites), for a movie about moral dilemmas and ethical quicksand that keep us engaged and involved every step of the way.

We see:
* Jason Bateman ("Identity Thief") is a successful attorney named Rich, whose adolescent son is very troubled. Dad puts it down to normal teenage angst. Bateman just gets better and better; he is extremely effective in this one!
* Hope Davis ("Real Steel") is Lydia, the mother of that same boy; she is more alarmed by their son's behavior than her husband. This actress never makes a misstep; how does she do it?
* Jonah Bobo ("Crazy, Stupid, Love") is Ben, their awkward teenage son who is the target of cyber bullying. Our hearts go out to this kid as we share his misery.
* Haley Ramm (Lots of TV) is Abby, the loyal but embarrassed sister of the dorky misfit. This young lady has developed into a terrific actress.

Format:DVD
"Disconnect" may be one of the most thought-provoking films to come down the pike in recent years that paints an accurate and frightening image of what life looks like now, due to our dependence on the internet, and where it might lead if people don't realize the damage that is being done. The internet is a powerful, useful tool, but the daily abuse of it is almost beyond the scope of comprehending. "Disconnect" gives us an idea about how widespread and frequent that abuse is.

There is a certain amount of irony that our world has become so much closer in the way we communicate. We can literally converse with almost anyone on the planet. I grew up during a time when pen-pal letters from school was about as "close" as I ever got to talking to someone from another country. However, the closer we have become with our communication, the larger the chasm in our connections with others.

"Disconnect" focuses on three main story-lines. The first involves, Ben Boyd, a young high school boy who is basically a loner and an outsider. It's clear that he has few, if any, friends, and he spends much of his time writing and composing music. Even his family seems to barely acknowledge him, especially his father, a successful lawyer who is always busy and even finds his son to be a bit odd as well. Two kids at his school decide to play a "prank" on him by setting up an online profile, and masquerading as a girl who is interested in Ben and his music, thus taking advantage of his vulnerable state of wanting to connect with someone. I don't think a film has ever given us a clearer or scarier depiction of the kind of damage people can do through manipulating others, especially online where you have no idea who you are talking to.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Better to be Connected than Disconnected September 7, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
You really need to take a long shower after watching this one. Disconnect contains two basic messages...the Internet is certainly not your friend and you better start "connecting" with friends and family or plan on losing them. Exploitation of young adults for on-line sex sites, cyber-bullying and identity theft are the Trinity of what is essential peril of our Internet usage. Good acting and a tension filled narrative really drove this movie to a good place. Most of the characters in this you just wanted to haul off and hurt. Disconnect reminded me a lot of my reaction after seeing the 2002 movie Thirteen...dazed and scared in my ignorance of not knowing the sick reality in this big bad world of ours.

4.0 out of 5 stars "RIVETING, DRAMATIC, ENTERTAINING!" April 21, 2013
Format:DVD
'Disconnect' is a dynamic drama that tells different stories of people's lives, and how they are all struggling in today's world of high technology, and social media. The riveting stories become more dramatic as we follow ordinary people, and witness dangerous situations. An ex-police officer has a tough time raising a mischievous son, a lawyer cannot find any time to communicate with his own family as his cell phone takes up most of his time for work. A couple is placed in a danger zone, when personal secrets are exposed online. As the stories unfold, the movie becomes more-and-more interesting. Acting performance of Jason Bateman is excellent, along with the rest of the cast. Three dramatic stories of how today's social media affects different individuals and their lives, becomes thought-provoking as the reality hits home for all of us. It makes you think about cell phones, the internet, identity theft, and much more on modern technology. This movie reveals the pros-and-cons of modern technology, and social media. More important, it shows how lives can be affected in dangerous situations, because of the type of world we now live in. Intriguing, thrilling, and entertaining. Recommended for all those who enjoy drama, and thrillers!
