Specifically it is the HTML source of the the trial page for the MathCode library, presumably the intention was to capture the code of the actual library rather than the HTML source. See more »

Most underrated good movie I can think of
7 December 2012 | by shamontielvaughnSee all my reviews

With a cast like Zoe Saldana, Idris Elba and Columbus Short, I can't understand why this movie isn't still being talked about. I happened to be looking for movies Idris Elba was in when I saw it and had never heard of it before last year. Since then I have watched this movie so many times I lost count. Zoe Saldana did an excellent job in her fighting scenes (no extras; she put in work). Columbus Short is already athletic so I expected him to bring the action. I knew Idris Elba for dramatic films but it wasn't until "Luther" that I started seeing him in action flicks, and after that I realized he is a very strong and athletic character, too. The reason I keep talking about action is because so much of this film is full of energetic combative scenes. But my favorite part of the film is none of that. I am always tickled to watch the entire elevator scene with Chris Evans. Cracks me up no matter how many times I see it.

This movie should've gotten more awards and attention.
