Re: ITT: Social Media

Social media reached the point where the signal-to-noise ratio just isn't acceptable to anybody who values their time. I'd kinda expect a resurgence in forums, but thoughtful discourse requires an attention span - where the lack of which I mostly blame the internet in general, not social media. Edi...

ITT: Social Media

Anybody else find it... odd that the social media-verse has come to a screeching halt? As in, there was myspace, friendster, then Facebook, twitter, instagram........ and did every intelligent site designer throw in the towel and give up? I've been looking for somewhere to leave Facebook for, to esc...

Re: The Hell With This Podcast #68 - "The Ice Pirates" (1984)

Ha ha ha, you guys kept circling around it but never landed on it, it is a parody of the bad sci fi moves of the time. I get that it doesn't hold up these days with movies like Deadpool and such, but come on, this was absurdly stupid/funny in 1984 when I was eleven. At the time, all of these actors...

Re: The Hell With This Podcast #68 - "The Ice Pirates" (1984)

You each summed it beautifully in two separate sentence fragments put together: "You can do anything you want in the view of the lens and...this is what they chose to film" - "like, how cheesy and tacky it is." That's it. That's all there is to it. Anything more than that is overinterpretation, try...

You're welcome.
hahaha *slowly backs away*

We - or at least *I* - had fun with it. Mark and I were missing the nostalgia aspect of it, so it was hard for us to wrap our tiny brains around.

Shall we write out our "wants"? As in, not necessarily what we want out of the film fest, but actually what jobs we prefer? Just to get an idea of how this is going to play out...

2k Film Fest #...6? Or 7? I don't remember

Thanks to Lance, we actually finished another film fest with AT LEAST one final finished short film. I don't think there's been a festival we've done without at least one completion. I could be wrong. Lank and Lance have saved us in recent years. Maybe Lanqce will save us next, wherever THEY are. So...

Shame they didn't do a follow up to Tinker Trailor Soldier Spy.
Would it have spelled-out the first movie?

Also - that article hints that Richard Madden is being rumored as the next Bond. Hoping they avoid that.

Re: Bond 25

Having any spy flick nowadays that didn't involve a rogue agent, good guy or bad guy, would be refreshing. Between Bond, Mission Impossible, and The Bourne trilogy, those plots have been more than played out. Indeed. Looking forward to someone injecting something new to the genre - that will probab...

Re: The "I just watched a movie" thread

Collected thoughts were: Enjoyable, with some incredible moments (the second half), but ultimately flawed (the first half & setup). The book was better, more convoluted and played out with a lot unreliable narration, which didn't play as well in the film, which was more face-value. Still, the last m...

Re: TEAM 3 - Faldor / Lance / Owen W. / (Fig)

What I always say is that if you get into a festival that's good enough to require a DCP, it's a good problem to have. This. Also, you can make a DCP on your own computer - you just can't watch it. lol... Funny thing is I saw someone selling a DCP cinema projector recently for not a bad price. But ...
