    ohhh

    oh I also watched Hugo a few weeks back with my family

    it was a very good movie, fairytale almost

    reminded me of the sort of books I would read as a kid

    it also had Gnossienne in it and it's one of my favs so that's a bonus

    he is a really good actor!

    who knew!

    Predator 2 suffers really badly from its setting.

    I like the predator, and the Danny Glover bits. But the far flung future of 1997 with no petrol ruled by Rastafarian drug lords seemed a bit silly.

    That reminds me. Do you know what would be a great crossover?

    Predator Vs. Demolition Man.

    Right now, you're all jealous I thought of it first.

    What I find fucking crazy about starship troopers. Is that the movie is a satire. And a great one at that.

    The book is 100% not satire.

    The writer is positive that this is the right way to live.

    I actually enjoyed Predator 2 a lot more than the original

    the urban setting clicked with me more

    yeah the whole 1997 dystopia thing didn't age well and it was pretty silly to begin with

    but it's more interesting

    yeah but it also seems like he actually has some talent now

    not that I am, at all, downplaying Scorsese's directing skills

    but I think the dude is actually considerably skilled in his craft and that did now show at all in his past projects

    I almost agree with you.

    Predator 2 is almost a great movie.

    I wish so hard that they would remake it.

    it is actually my dad that sold me on demolition man.

    He normally hates movies like that but he sat me down and told me i had to watch it.

    It was weird.

    I watched Hugo ages ago.

    And when I left the theater, I was all, best picture, don't argue with me, I can't see how anything this year will be better.

    Then I saw the artist.

    Two minutes in I changed my mind.

    I did not see The Atrist, though I get a feeling it's probably for the best. I get that it's very very good, I just dont think I would like it much myself.

    Also yeah, the Starship Troopers book seemed to take itself and the idiology in it very seriously

    heinlein's other work is basically the exact opposite of that

    stranger in a strange land, for instance, argues for a society that is essentially without government

    To me, it felt quite accessible across genres.

    I liked it for a bunch of reasons.

    I like talking about media.

    I didn't really know this growing up as none of my friends really read. And my parents didn't take me to the movies or the video store very often so I didn't really cultivate a liking to them til far later in life, when people did engage me in discussion. I would talk about them quite happily.

    I saw it and appreciated the hell out of it. It's a fantastic movie, but it wasn't really my idea of a great old time.

    Real Question.

    Was I the only one, who, when I first saw the trailer for war horse was waiting for some jokes in the trailer because they were convinced it was not a Steven Speilberg film, but a guy parodying him?

    the thought did not occur to me but I could totally see how it might

    I mostly just thought "looks like another Oscar grab"

    When I was a kid, the scene in Robocop 2 where the evil kid takes him apart disturbed me.

    Robocop is up there with starship troopers.

    I do not care for starship troopers

    mainly because it was shot on filmstock that bothers me

    what?

    I don't get it like, what's so bothersome about a film being on the medium you put films on

    different filmstock gives a film different visual qualities

    it's generally very, very subtle

    typically it's just a matter of fidelity - compare any modern film with a sitcom and you'll see what I'm talking about right away

    also, british television is visually distinct from american television for this reason, because they use a different filmstock as their standard

    starship troopers was filmed on a "cooler" filmstock than is typical for hollywood films

    so everything is just a tad blueshifted

    and this irritates me

    it's entirely subjective, obviously, and I'm not saying it's a bad film

    I just don't care for it

    (I have no idea how digital recording deals with this, but it's probably something they can just set on the camera before they start recording, or maybe they do it in post, I don't know)

    edit: oh and "filmstock" refers to the physical film that a move is recorded on, if that wasn't clear

    I can't speak for Depressperado, but I found it confusing, because at first glance your statement parses as:

    [mainly because it was shot on filmstock] that bothers me

    rather than

    mainly because it was shot on [filmstock that bothers me]

    I'm sure you were dying to know that.

    When demolition man was first out on tv or video, don't remember, we were going to watch it and I guess me and my brothers were acting up a bit. So my dad punches me in the arm, which make my nose bleed for some reason, and then we enjoy a fantastic movie.

    all things being equal, an original has more artistic merit

    right yes, but unless it is a remake it is still an original story

    based on existing Intellectual Property

    and?

    it makes it distinct from original IP and less artistically meritorious.
