theHobMob crew was fortunate to be invited to the premiere screening of "Time to Choose" at Landmark Theatres last evening. Charles Ferguson (the legendary documentary director of "Inside Job" and "No End in Sight") teams up again with the very talented producer Audrey Marrs.

Whether climate change is caused by humans or an age-old year precession cycle is NOT the question here--it is undeniable that humans are accelerating the creation of an unsustainable environment and polluted ecosystems.
The documentary instead chooses to address the issue of fossil fuels in agriculture. It exposes the characters and role of state players in propagation of coal pits, fossil fuels, and industrialized/monoculture agriculture characterized by soy farming in Brazil and palm oil plantations in Indonesian and Malaysian cartels.

The technology to fix all of this exists. The question is whether it will be implemented fast enough and in a scale large enough. Big money cartels and big oil companies aren't going to give up. State actors won't help in time. We have to choose...and our only hope lies in a grassroots effort. Let's take the first step together. [^]

Robin Wright Rightly Demands and Gets Equal Pay for 'House of Cards'

Robin Wright is now being paid the same amount as Kevin Spacey, her costar on Netflix's House of Cards. But it took her asking for it and the actress negotiated her salary in a way that would make her House of Cards' character, Claire Underwood, proud.

Let's go ...

"I was like, 'I want to be paid the same as Kevin," Wright said. Wright's character, Claire Underwood, is married to Spacey's U.S. President Frank Underwood. The couple are equally cunning as they are conniving in their political and personal pursuits on the show.

"It was a perfect paradigm. There are very few films or TV shows where the male, the patriarch, and the matriarch are equal. And they are in House of Cards," Wright said."

Amitabh Bachchan's daughter Shweta Nanda wrote the following about her father Amitabh in "Vogue" magazine and I found it too impressive to not quote here:
"Since I am writing for a generation that won’t read the fine print, here are the reasons that make my father, Amitabh Bachchan, cool.
Because it’s cool to stand the test of time.
Because when they told him he wasn’t good enough he redefined good enough.
Because he was a science major who took a desk job and quit it all to act.
Because, well… there’s that baritone.
Because no one does angry like he does.
Because when he couldn’t dance to their tune, he ensured they learnt to dance to his.
Because you can dress him in anything and he carries it off.
Because all his notes are hand-written.
Because he took it in the solar plexus, literally, and lived to tell the tale.
Because during the Gulf War, his name was enough to grant stranded Indians passage through Egypt (he still has their letters of thanks).
Because he reinvented himself at 60 and the gamble paid off.
Because he helped eradicate polio in India.
Because he is a thorough professional; his punctuality is the stuff of legend.
Because he throws the best movie nights—complete with cosy blankets and gigantic bowls of popcorn—ever (invitees are family only).
Because he has an office-supplies addiction (his pen collection is mind-boggling).
Because no one smells as heavenly as he does (there is a secret formula for this, a mixology of colognes).
Because all his suits are bespoke (his arms are too long for him to wear off the rack).
Because on his 70th birthday, he danced till six in the morning, without stopping once.
Because his charity is always under the radar.
Because when Louboutin sends him shoes, he addresses them “To God”.
Because there isn’t a stereotype he hasn’t broken.
Because he is the first Bachchan in the world (it was his father’s nom de plume, and when he was born he was the first person to take it as his surname).
Because he is full of child-like wonderment even though he’s seen it and done it all.
And finally, because the queue starts from where he stands."

This Guy Just Changed The Way We See Star Wars. Mind Blown.

Now, taken out of context, if you were watching a Star Wars movie and saw a character casually execute this maneuver, you'd probably assume it was a Jedi. In the context of Jar Jar, though, we don't... because elsewhere he so thoroughly convinces us that he's nothing more than a harmless dunce with his inane dialogue and cowardly-lion act.

Is this crazy, or genius? Evan Calves, what do you think? I can't wait to see The Force Awakens!!!!!

Emma Zahren-Newman As a side note, it kind of left a dark hole on my soul to put this post in the "disney movie" subinterest. Oh well, no better way to deal with the facts than to face them...
