That was 1999. I was in high school. So I'm guess you're not old!

Colombiana

6.5/10

Could have been much better, great potential but fell short with the writing and character development. Still, Zoe Saldana is hot so that part was great.

La Quattro Volte. It uses untrained actors and zero dialogue to offer a glimpse of life in a small rural town in a mountainous part of Italy. There are a bunch of goats, and not much else, but it's remarkably poignant all the same. The shots are framed and composed wonderfully. And there is a great display of human interactions with the environment that offers a lot to meditate on along the way. It's the complete opposite of an action flick, but if you can spare 80 minutes and are in the mood for something different, I highly recommend it.

Muppets Movie. I love Jason Segel (and the Muppets), so it was a good time.

Vertigo - 8.5/10

While I gave it this score it's still my favourite of the Hitchcock films. I've seen a number of times but it was my wife's first time to watch it.

Also watched Inland Empire (David Lynch's last film I believe).

Like most of Lynch's work, I need to re-watch it a few times. However my initial review will be 8/10

was reading an article this morning that had some info on The Hobbit and i thought i'd pass it along
i seriously can't wait for these 2 films...

Quote:
Warner Bros. pretty much saved the best for last as Peter Jackson came on the screen to present some 3D footage from his anticipated The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, but first, he gave a brief history of film frame rates in order to explain why he decided to film the movies at twice the normal speed.

Jackson was at CinemaCon last year pushing higher frame rates. Back when sound was introduced, the standard film frame rate was increased to 24 frames per second, although it was never made higher essentially to save money on film. With digital, there's no reason to stick to 24 frames, because you have unlimited time when recording footage to a hard drive and Jackson claims that the 3D is much easier on the eyes without the strobing or flicker from the lower frame rate. His decision to screen ten minutes was because that's how long it takes for the eyes to adjust, and the 48 FPS was noticeable right away, especially if you'd previously seen the trailer on a big screen or even a laptop, but we'll talk more about that after discussing the actual footage.

It opened with lots of sweeping shots of the mountains and landscapes of Middle Earth set to Howard Shore's distinctive score leading into an introduction by the older Bilbo, played by Ian Holm, telling the story of his journey to Frodo, and we see a brief glimpse of Elijah Wood as his "Lord of the Rings" character. This then leads into the opening from the trailer of Gandalf approaching Bilbo to go on a journey with the dwarves. We watched a good section of when Bilbo encounters trolls around the campfire early in his journey and they're trying to decide how to eat him, and as one of the trolls lift Bilbo up, Thorin leaps forward and the rest of the dwarves come forward to save him.

There's also a significant scene where Gandalf is presenting "the Immortal Blade" to a council made up of Christopher Lee's Saruman, Cate Blanchett's Galadriel, and Hugo Weaving's Elrond as they discuss the sword's origins and how Gandalf was able to get it from the crypt of the Witch King where he was buried in a tomb covered with spells preventing it from being opened.



We then see Gandalf going through that same tomb, peering around a corner when a bird flies out and startles him, and standing behind him is a dwarf - one we couldn't identify or remember, thought it was a kindly older dwarf rather than a warrior like Thorin. The birds flying around land on his head as if his hair was a nest and he puts his cap over them. With his staff, Gandalf lights up the way ahead which is a steep stairwell leading straight down.

The scenes of the group walking across the green fields and icy mountains of Middle Earth (i.e. New Zealand) were definitely reminiscent of "Fellowship of the Rings" and we even saw a little bit of Gandalf on his steed and a scene where the dwarves first encounter Orlando Bloom's Legolas.

The highlight though was an extended conversation between Bilbo and Smeagol/Gollum where Bilbo is trying to get directions from the strange creature who seems to be more interested in playing a game of riddles. Andy Serkis' ability to switch Smeagol's schizophrenic personalities still seems to be intact, and from what we saw, Martin Freeman seems absolutely perfect as Bilbo and we think audiences will like him as much as they did the Hobbits in the "Lord of the Rings" movies

So what about the 48 frames per second? That's the thing. It's kind of hard to tell with the unfinished footage missing FX and important aspects of the scenes. Everything looks crystal clear but it also looks a little too perfect and lifelike and because of that clarity, the fact that we're looking at sets and actors in costumes and make-up seems much more obvious. One of the nice things about film is that it adds a glossy look that smooths out the rough spots in sets, costumes and make-up.

I'd probably compare the look a bit to the old "Doctor Who" television shows in terms of it looking a lot like it was shot on television cameras, which may be hard to adjust to for those used to a certain way of watching films for 80 odd years. This may be a non-issue though because who knows how many theater owners will want to spend the money switching over and if movie fans will really care about seeing the movie at the higher frame rate just because that's the way Jackson wanted to shoot it. Personally, I'm a little concerned that too many people were put off by the look of the footage and how different it looks, even though to be fair, it's unfinished footage.

I'm a Toronto chick. I'm not a shallow fuck.

It's a big city, you're looking in the wrong places. I hope your opening line isn't "Outside of t.o, my record is spotless. never have I been rejected what I want. Hell, I seduced girls in a language before I was fluent in it.", because that would be an issue.

Well, many lines are bullshit so it would qualify.

I've said that to pzabby multiple times in threads. His pessimistic view on Toronto and women is just too high.
