  • Excerpt: Everyone loves the internet. It allows us to buy cheap goods and quantify our friends, so how could we not? There's another side to cyberspace, though, that most people don't access or consider. Hackers, whether in it for personal monetary gain or for more worldly concerns of "hacktivism," bring up the deep security issues of the technology and randomized chat rooms, whether populated by predators or pervs, reveal the dangers of supposed anonymity.

Smiley’s People (DVD Review)

28 October 2011
  • Conclusion: This is a fitting conclusion to the series and once again Alec Guinness is fantastic in it.  This series has a different feel to it than the previous series but I liked the darker tone.  Make sure you watch Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy first before you watch this series since they dovetail nicely together.

Smiley's People

DVD Verdict
25 October 2011
  • Excerpt: The esteemed novelist John Le Carre was generally displeased with the earliest cinematic adaptations of his work. He disliked Richard Burton's performance in The Spy Who Came In From the Cold , had mixed feelings about Sidney Lumet's The Deadly Affair and flat-out despised The Looking-Glass War . However, the 1977 television production of Le Carre's Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy was an enormous success in the eyes of critics, the public and the author himself.

Smiley Face

Not Coming
2 March 2009
  • Excerpt: A stoner film usually amounts to little more than an 80-minute in-joke. The best ones can boast sublimely ridiculous dialogue or preposterous plots, but they usually aim for nothing higher than to entertain blitzed college students. Yet even an unambitious movie done extremely well can still be a gem. The little-seen Smiley Face , an unusual entry into the stoner genre, is a cloudy gem, but a gem nonetheless.
