Catfish Review

“Catfish”

            Yaniv Schulman, a photographer who had one of his photo’s featured in a local news paper.  Abby, a young girl who contacts “Nev” to paint his pictures.  Everything seems to be so normal, little does Nev know, everything is not what it seems.
            “Catfish” was a movie released in 2010. Filmmakers Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost document a story involving Ariel's brother, Nev, a 24-year-old New York-based photographer, and Abby, from rural Michigan who contacts Nev via Facebook, asking for permission to make a painting from one of his photographs. 
            Yaniv “Nev” was a photographer who had his photo’s featured in a local news paper.  He begins receiving paintings from a young girl named Abby.  These paintings are good, very good. Abby is an up coming artist who is on the right track to make it, with the help of her mother.  Angela was Abby’s coach and mentor.  As well as her sister Megan.  Megan was 19 years old, just like Nev was.  Nev connected with Megan in many ways.  It seemed as if there was a love connection being established through this online relationship.  Just as Nev thought things were too good to be true, he uncovered lies.  Nev and his friends decided to take a road trip to Michigan and surprise the family.  What they uncovered would never have been expected.
            I thought the idea to this movie was really good.  This movie was very good at explaining what could happen through online relationships and communication through social networking sites.  I don’t think the movie would have been so good if it was not for Nev being the main character.  Nev seemed to lighten up the suspense when anything was on its way to being a large cliff hanger.
            I do recommend people to watch this movie.  Especially if anyone uses social networking sites.  It is a very suspenseful movie which will leave you wondering what will happen next.  This movie shows you the truth’s about FaceBook and all of the things you can do with it.

Cat Fish Day 3, Ending

This was a good movie. I liked this movie more than i thought i would.  I thought Nev handled the situation very well.  I would have never handled it like that.  Angela was weird, and she is NUTS. The movie was a good movie to watch in this class because it showed what could happen if you are talking to someone on the internet and you have no idea who they really are.

Catfish Day 2

This movie is WEIRD, that old lady is a freak.  I dont know why Nev stayed there as long as he did.  I would have been gone a long time ago.  It is way too creepy.  This movie freaks me out when you think about who you are really talking to online.  I am anxious to watch the ending, though i dont know if i really want to. who knows what else will be uncovered.

Catfish

My first reaction about this movie is that it is weird.  It is an interesting movie to watch but i dont know what to really think about it until i watch more.

Mobile Technology

Use Of Technology Paper

         
Mobile Technology has changed the world completely.  Back 50 years ago cell phones were almost non-existent.  Now they are everywhere.  Weather it is a cheap flip phone, a Blackberry, or an Android phone, most people have one.  These phones allow people to change their status on a social networking site, use their email, create spreadsheets, and communicate with all of their friends and colleagues.
Mobile technology has changed tremendously from 10 years ago.  Some people say that mobile technology is ruining society little by little, but I don’t agree with that.  I think mobile technology is making a change for the better.  More people are easily communicating through their phones and technology.  Mobile technology has although changed society in negative ways.  This has caused society to become more materialistic. 
People have become much more materialistic in the ways they communicate and use technology.  In todays society, it is less about the features and benefits of the product, but it is more about what the latest phone is.  People don’t always use their phones to their fullest potential.  People in todays society seem to neglect the true meaning of their lives by fulfilling the lives that Hollywood sets out for them.  This has been true in the clothes they were to the Mobile Technology they see, if they see that Paris Hilton got a new Blackberry, it suddenly becomes the latest phone that everyone wants. 
A lot has also changed in the sense that the government is able to listen in on all of your telephone calls made.  They can also see all of your documents.  This has taken away privacy for many people.

Blogging

I think blogging is over rated.  I dont like to blog, i dont enjoy reading every single thought that comes from someones head, it gets old.  I can agree that people got fired for blogging but only for certain reasons.  With the blog in the movie that Julie was doing i thought it was really repetitive and every other scene she was sitting at her computer talking to a virtual community of peole who she didnt know.  Blogging is not something i would ever do on my own personal time.  The people who got fired for blogging probably shouldnt have been blogging in the first place and there is a reason that they got fired. Blogging is taking over the world one tech savy nerd at a time : D
