Writer Ratings:

Watch this if you liked: "Unfriended" & "Open Windows"

The Good, the Bad and the Social Media Ills:

• Never has a movie so cleverly illustrated the dangers of giving out too much information via social media.

• There were some before this, but "Searching" makes you dwell on this even more and consider all the information that's being shared out there and if it's really that smart of a move.

• Mostly comic actor John Cho shows us that he is more than capable in taking on dramatic roles, and playing a widowed father who goes on a search for his missing daughter makes him very relatable as a person.

• Evenly paced, slick and smart in the progression of its story, "Searching" should be watched by all who depend on social media on a day to day basis just so that it can serve as a wake up call to those who think there's no harm in oversharing.
