Searching (2018)

As long as we recognize Lucas is washed up and most TV sucks, we'll all get along fine.

Getting a lot of good press.

Looks like Taken except the dad knows how to surf Facebook.

John Cho and Debra Messing star in this technology driven drama.

Ever see that episode of Modern Family where the entire episode takes place from the perspective of the mom using Facetime and what not to talk to her family? It's honestly one of the better episodes of any sitcom. This is the movie version of that and while this is a drama, there are some jokes very lightly sprinkled in, including one that I wanted to clap for as it was so accurate. A lot of what takes place and the stuff you see are actually statements about our current society and its relationship with social media.

Some of you will dig the tech aspect. It's user level, but they what they show is accurate enough to work.

The entire movie doesn't work that way, of course, but a lot of it takes place on John's Mac or his daughter's Macbook.

This is a movie about family and the lengths we'll go for them. It's well made, and entertaining. If you have a family, and actually like them, you should dig this movie.
