Nacho Libre (Idiosyncratic Collector's Edition) by Paramount Pictures
Product Description
Jack Black is at his comic best as Ignacio, a disrespected cook at a Mexican monastery that can barely afford to feed the orphans who live there. Inspired by a local wrestling hero, he decides to moonlight as the not-so-famous Luchador "Nacho Libre" to earn money for the monastery -- not to mention the admiration of beautiful nun Sister Encarnacion.

This Jack Black vehicle seems, on the surface, like a perfect fit for the actor: an opportunity to showcase Black's unique style with the extreme facial gestures and exuberant physicality that have become his forte. Black plays Ignacio, a lowly cook in a monastery in central Mexico who feeds orphans by day, and wrestles in the town square at night. Ignacio teams up with Esqueleto (Hector Jimenez), a street urchin who tormented him, to form a tag-team duo that goes up against the strangest wrestlers Mexico has to offer. Besides doing it for money to feed the orphans, Ignacio is also fighting to win the forbidden affections of Sister Encarnacion (Ana de la Reguera) with predictable difficulty. While the movie has likeable characters and the plot is enjoyable enough, it can’t overcome its plodding pace and formulaic structure enough to keep the movie interesting throughout. Jack Black is a very strong comedic actor, and the wrestling scenes offer plenty of chances for slapstick, physical comedy, but watching him run around in red briefs and blue tights amounts to half the laughs in the movie, and there’s just not enough here for him to really work with. When he plays a more well-formed character, as in School of Rock and High Fidelity, his strengths really show. But in Nacho Libre he’s saddled with a caricature. Weighed down by too much low-brow humor and a script that goes nowhere, Nacho Libre just can’t make full enough use of Black’s talents to overcome the obstacles. --Daniel Vancini

After eight years with Facebook's News Feed, there's no such thing as 'TMI' - Washington Post

When Facebook introduced its News Feed in 2006, users quite literally revolted against it. Petitions to nix the feature racked up tens of thousands of signatures. Early users — mostly college students, at that point, since Facebook hadn’t yet opened up to the general public — left the social network in droves. Columnists at every major college paper in the country wrote eulogies to a site that, they assumed, could not outlive the outrage. News Feed was, at one point, dubbed “this generation’s Vietnam. “I lost three friends to the great Facebook massacre of ’06,” Carlos Maycotte wrote in the Cornell Daily Sun. In the eight years since, Facebook’s News Feed — that LED-lit window through which we glimpse news, memes and snatches of other people’s lives — has not exactly gotten less controversial. But the nature of that controversy has fundamentally changed. Where early college users raged against sharing, and seeing, too much information — of being subsumed, in effect, by the social media noise — our anxieties today frequently involve getting too little of it. Facebook’s latest changes to the News... Whether we see too much content or too little, everything we see in Facebook’s News Feed is determined by an algorithm — an invented mathematical formula that guesses what you want to see based on who posted it, where it came from, and a string of... Our conception of “sharing,” both in the sense of sending content and receiving it, was fundamentally narrower. We were accustomed to putting photos on our Myspace profiles, for instance, or perhaps sharing tidbits from our lives on Livejournal or Xanga. When News Feed upended that — essentially guaranteeing that every online post was less a conversation, and more a shout from the Internet rooftops — users rioted. They hated this idea not only that their information, so dutifully and naively logged into Facebook all these months, could suddenly belong to a wider public. But more than that, they hated the idea that they’d soon be bombarded with other people’s trivia. Users were “overwhelmed,” claimed early reviews. Source: www.washingtonpost.com
