Sequestration, sometimes called the sequester, is a process that automatically cuts the federal budget across most departments and agencies.
Congress included the threat of sequestration in the Budget Control Act of 2011 as a way to encourage compromise on deficit reduction efforts.
Congress couldn’t agree on a budget by the deadline set in the Budget Control Act, so mandatory budget cuts were scheduled to go into effect on January 2, 2013. (more…)

“Snitch” is the epitome of a “star vehicle”. In this case the star is Dwayne Johnson. There is no reason to see “Snitch” other than Dwayne Johnson. I’ve seen some movies lately that offer zero reasons to see them, so it’s fair to say that Dwayne Johnson is better than nothing. Still, this movie was made entirely as an excuse to put Johnson’s face on a vaguely thrilling poster and get his fans into a theater to see something, anything, starring their champion.
If I could describe the mood of the film in one word, it would be “worried”. Johnson’s character John Matthews worries about his son Jason (Rafi Gavron), who has been arrested on a drug charge that carries a ten-year prison sentence. The rest of the family worries about Jason too. John worries as he meets with a crusty prosecutor (Susan Sarandon) who won’t lift a finger for Jason unless she gets some leads on some bigger criminals. So John goes undercover for the DEA to catch drug dealers, which means he has to worry about being discovered as a snitch. He learns that a dangerous cartel knows where he lives. Now he has to worry about the rest of his family. He enlists the help of a friend named Daniel (Jon Bernthal) to get him a meeting with a drug lord (Michael K. Williams) and we get some scenes of Daniel worrying about his and his family’s safety. When it begins to look like John is in danger, the other characters worry about him. Jason is worried himself, of course, but he’s taking too many prison beatings in the present to worry much about the future. Naturally it’s the bad guys who don’t do a whole lot of worrying. (more…)
