Summary:

Native New Yorker Rachel Chu accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young, to his best friend’s wedding in Singapore. Excited about visiting Asia for the first time but nervous about meeting Nick’s family, Rachel is unprepared to learn that Nick has neglected to mention a few key details about his life. It turns out that he is not only the scion of one of the country’s wealthiest families but also one of its most sought-after bachelors.

Ask me anything Thursday on Reddit at 12pm PST.

I’m going through the process of dealing with my first movie (Higher Power) being released to the world. It’s a weird feeling… I want to talk about how weird. Also I want to talk about how I cobbled together an indie sci-fi, with less than $500K. From recklessly writing a script that required a blockbuster-sized budget, to somehow digging myself out of that situation by completing 99% of the visual effects myself. What it felt like being locked in a dark room with one computer and three graphics cards… For almost four years. And how it feels to be out. Along with all kinds of other stuff we want to talk about because… fuck it. No rules. Wait, are there rules? I don’t know how the collective consciousness that is Reddit works!? Maybe you guys can show me the deal and I can teach you some things about indie moviemaking. Not that I know a ton, but I did figure out some stuff along the way. Let’s do this. - MCS

I watched "Tag". I liked it a lot. A couple of my friends recently told me their conspiracy theory that Hannibal Buress wasn't actually in "Tag". They sold me.

Here's the gist. They are completely convinced that the entire movie had been shot without Hannibal Buress. Their guess is that early studio reactions and test audience screenings were poor, because of lack of diversity and not enough humor - so they hired Hannibal Buress and shoehorned him into the movie after the fact using a mixture of greenscreen, standalone reaction shots, and a few reshoots featuring the entire cast.

In watching the movie, they couldn't help but notice that Hannibal often isn't in the mix with the rest of the cast or is off to the side in some shots almost like he's been digitally added. The movie frequently cuts away to him to give off-kilter one-liners seemingly tagged on after the fact. It almost seems like his character serves no real purpose to the plot as it mostly revolves around Jeremy Renner, Jake Johnson, Ed Helms and Jon Hamm.

Granted, Hannibal is probably the best part of the movie so if this mischief actually took place, it was worth it.

I've reached out to Hannibal for comment on Twitter and thus far have received no response.

TL;DR: Hannibal Buress isn't actually in "Tag"

For me it’s American Psycho. Oddly enough it’s my favourite movie. It’s one of those films where the plot holes were deliberately put there to throw off the audience and the writer of the novel it’s based on did it perfectly. At the end of the movie I’m just left there thinking. About what I just watched which most movies don’t really do to me anymore.

I thought it would be just another basic alien sci fi but it was so magical. Empathy is a powerful tool. Sharlto Copley is charming and such a joy to watch. He really chooses good movies. Always good to see South Africa too. It was an emotional rollercoaster. Neill Blomkamp does some really weird and interesting movies. Any other movies like it?
