The good old days
5 August 2019 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Search Engines was based on an interesting concept of people having to do without their cell phone apps during the course of a Thanksgiving holiday. A bunch of disparate people are gathered for turkey day.

The concept was interesting, but I really couldn't get into the film because the people weren't exactly the most interesting characters I've ever watched. This was 90 minutes of pure talk of the good old days. But the plain fact we have become lazy with knowledge at our fingertiips.

Even at this old desktop computer of mine that is certainly true. Just if someone tackles the subject again do it with more interesting people.
