SPOILER ALERT!!!

a movie about a guy that goes to a cybercafe, logs in checks his private messages and bug reports for a website... well thats 40 minutes of a movie wasted.

the movie then shows him in a chatroom typing away having an arguement and he flips open his tor browser to hire a hitman. thats the 10 minute build up to the action part of the movie.

and the last 40 minutes of a 90 minute movie is him sitting at home and the cops knocking at his door, getting arrested,,,

... definetly not a die hard action movie.. and less of a storyline then that facebook movie...

id think they may make a documentary channel  episode about it one day, but not worthy of going to the cinema for

Silk Road The Movie? it will be a stinky one,What's so exciting about a guy sitting in a basement and surfing the web and in the end getting arrested? even with drugs and hitman's stuff it's still a go-to-sleep story and maybe don't-sell-drugs one. Either they add some exciting conspiracy/mafia like "modifications" to the real thing or it will be a big fail.

This would make such an epic plot for a movie. And yeah, of course they'll exaggerate things and change it a bit....

Come on guys have some imagination. Of course he meets with all the drug lords in person. Get's roughed up a couple of times. Goes to Colombia and spits in the face of one of the great Kingpin's there, makes fund of their computer illiteracy etcetera etcetera. I'm beginning to see why the script writers get paid so much. To me, these crappy plots which the general public seems to love, write themselves.

i hope they get the story straight and show how the FBI framed him for those hits that never happened.

Hollywood isn't about getting the story right its about entertainment.

Sad, but true.
For sure. Ticket sales are what it is all about.

That's bad ass! Who among us owns a movie theater? I know they are struggling, perhaps this could generate some sales?

I don't think anybody is going to watch a movie about some computer nerd who sets up a website, then gets arrested.
Yeah, that was my point. I just really don't understand how they could somehow stretch this story out into a 90 or 120 minute movie. I just don't see that happening, and the movie actually being interesting, all at once.

But attention for Bitcoin in a Hollywood movie Smiley

Yes, remember there is no such a thing as bad news, the only thing people will remember is the name. I think Henry Ford said that. Smiley

To paraphrase a quote gleaned from the above:

Quote
As with “The Fifth Estate,” the challenge of “Silk Road” is to inject visual interest in a story that’s essentially a guy looking at computer screen — a challenge that Lehane wrestles with uneven success.

They should probably wait for the guy to actually be found guilty?

Framed?...  Scammed him maybe but not Framed...  I for one, thankful he was scammed on those and I imagine the intended targets are very thankful...  Framed implies you don't even think the murders for hire jobs were real?

You guys realise that "adapted" means they will keep the drugs-over-the-internet bit and do whatever the fuck with the rest, right?

I'd die laughing if bitcoins aren't mentioned.

But the drugs over the internet bit is so 1995.

I will!

The thing is, they ought to include some of my adventures as to keep it interesting.  They can give several different perspectives.
