Review: RiP – A Remix Manifesto @ Mayfair Theatre

I decided to go to the Mayfair Theatre (which I haven’t been to in ages) to check out RiP: A Remix Manifesto.
Its about the remix culture and copyright issues in today’s society.

I liked it but not really sure paying the $9 was worth it since you can go on the website and see the documentary for free.
Or probably shown on CBC’s Hot Docs or the Documentary channel.
(Its my opinion and don’t take it too seriously and take it as a grain of salt. So don’t rip my head off)

I liked that there was some parts of Girl Talk’s music featured.
Would be cool if people were dancing to the music while watching it.

Very informative and fun to watch it.
Makes you think about the ramifications when dealing with the big media corporations.
Kind of scary about it too.

Forgot who it was that showed for the Q&A but it wasn’t the director.

Favorite parts was clips of Radiohead of Nude and other In Rainbow tracks.
This Youtube clip which I finally get to hear what the original song sounded like before “Bittersweet Symphony”.
If you want to see it on the big screen than go ahead.
But for those strap for cash just check it out at the NFB’s website.

    The film exposed the faults and hypocrisy of the our copyrights system.
    The guy who did the Q & A was the cinematographer/camera-man.

    Go See This Movie.
