SXSW – Austin, Texas – March 12, 2012 – Al Gore, Sean Parker, and World Premiere of 21 Jump Street (2012) starring Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, and Dave Franco at Paramount Theater

Former Vice-President and Nobel Peace Prize recipient Al Gore had a sit down with tech innovator Sean Parker of Napster and Facebook fame among other tech/online ventures. Al Gore believes that “Democracy has been hacked,” and he also called for an “Occupy Democracy” movement.  You can read more about it here at an article from the Washington Post.   Then I attended the World Premiere of 21 Jump Street.  IT WAS AMAZING!  There is a huge twist that yo’re going to love. It was directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, with screenplay by Michael Bacall.  I’m not going to go into a review here other than say that it was entertaining from top to bottom and had really great rhythm throughout the entire film.  The entire cast had memorable lines and impeccable delivery including Rob Riggle, Ice Cube, Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, and Dave Franco.  I will say that I’ve a newfound respect for Jonah Hill, who during the Q&A was extremely witty and funny.  It is a MUST SEE FILM! Oh and on a random note, last night I watched the film “Iron Sky,” and in the seat next to me was Doug Benson… check out his IMDB here.
