As I wrote before, I appreciated the effort to get Philly mostly right in the movie Creed. Shooting on location – any location, really – is really expensive and it’s always a big mystery to me when they shell out the money to do so but don’t bother to actually make use of a location. If you’re going to do it, make the site a character, not just a backdrop. Creed did that pretty well.

Bernie Sanders will be appearing fresh off his big speech today detailing his plans for regulating the Banksters so they pose less of a threat to our ‘Real’ economy of goods and services.
“Bold, brash and wholly false”: Hillary Clinton is misleading people about Bernie Sanders’ Wall Street reform, again

Running against a candidate with a hardline commitment to reducing the rich-and-powerful’s grip on prosperity and plenty has forced Clinton to attempt to distinguish herself by producing a lengthy, exhaustive set of specific policy proposals that “sure sound good,” but do not, in fact, go “beyond what currently exists.”
As Forbes reports, Clinton’s “proposals range from the arcane… to the silly,” as if “her heart isn’t up to the task progressives have set before her.”
And former U.S. Secretary of Labor and political economist Robert Reich notes that “Hillary Clinton’s proposals would only invite more dilution and finagle. The only way to contain the Street’s excesses is… [by] busting up the biggest banks.”
In reality, Clinton does not have a “tough” plan for reigning in Wall Street, but “a laundry list of marginally better-than-nothing reforms that are likely to vanish into an abyss of rule-writing and regulatory dithering.”
