Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Why, again, do I need HD? I watch a movie to be entertained. I don't watch a movie so I can see every last drop of sweat as it appears on the pores of the actor.

    Planet Earth

    Few shows have the production quality and budget of Planet Earth.

    Heh. What I meant was Planet Earth itself is enough of a reason to go HD. :)


    Though I do agree with Expendable to an extent. When I watch HD movies I am more wowed by the scenery in a HD movie. Seeing actor's scars, pimples, wrinkles and other blemishes is not a plus for me when it comes to HD.

    Heh, yeah.

    HD is nice, and generally, I enjoy it when I watch it, but I don't see it as a necessity. I think one of the issues of the HD market is the assumption that just because something is new, people will want it.

    HD doesn't mean you see pores. Not only can makeup do damned near everything, but so can some after editing.

    2.35:1 is the future
    Well, I've been hopeing at least.



    Man if I ever see black bars on my flat/wide (16:9) HDTV because it becomes not wide enough, I'm going to cry :).

    Have you tried watching any films made in the last 10 years?


    Yes...

    As far as I know all the DVD's I have are 16:9, unless I didn't even notice...which would be funny :).
    Most movies are shot in 2.35 and then scaled down. Which means, a 2.35 screen with the right projector and lense, correcdts this scaling by magnifying everything in the right proportion.
