Having seen the brilliance which was the Lego Movie, this is easily my most anticipated film of the next n years. I think if I go to the cinema twice in the next 18 months, one will be this and the other will be the star wars spin off.

Not until 2017.

There's another trailer if you're interested but it's not as good.


It was probably the most intense film I've ever seen. I really liked all the little bits in that film, using the flame lego block for flames when they could've just done shitty CGI fire as movies like this tend to. I see they've made water actual water in this trailer when it was blue blocks in the original, don't know if that's a full scale design change or just a partial one.

Do so.

I'm quite interested in watching promotional videos of manufacturing companies, mainly for education/general interest, but I occasionally stumble across gems which are somehow just hilariously bad.

Please share anything you have which falls into any of these categories, either interesting or comical.

This is one of my favourites, mainly due to the exciting script and expert narration.

Yet another adaptation that made me wonder why it was so thoroughly mediocre. Granted it wasn't has horrible as Max Payne, which came out around the same time and really was unwatchable shite. Both of them seem like they should be easy given the source material, though - one's Aladdin and the other's a gritty detective noir, it's not like this is unexplored territory for Hollywood. I wasn't expecting that much, but they failed anyway, and that's just slightly pathetic, somehow.

I have a soft spot for the first Mortal Kombat, it wasn't that great as kung fu movies go but I've watched plenty worse.

All good points. It's a bit like the Hitchhiker's Guide movie, in that both films would likewise be doomed to failure, but I'd still be curious to see what Abrams would do with either, with a decent budget.

>If you look at Half Life and it's storyline out of context, it's total schlock. Military base gets invaded by aliens, unassuming everyman turned action badass saves the day, while a mysterious and intriguing interloper looks on... It's far from groundbreaking originality, right? It's just a big soup of 90s sci-fi and pop-conspiracy tropes.

What made half life special was it's storytelling, and not being afraid to slow right the fuck down for the odd puzzle.

Storytelling isn't groundbreaking in film, and you don't have the interactive quality to do puzzles.

What else is it that you think makes it 'special'?

What has me confused about all of this is what the hell Sony thinks it is doing. It wasn't even a year ago that they did Fantastic Four and well...remember this:


The film bombed and so will Ghostbusters. Next one to bomb is looking like a reboot and sequel of Girl with a Dragon Tattoo without Daniel Craig and allegedly without Rooney Mara either (if another spiderman movie doesn't get released first: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/spider-man-spinoff-venom-revived-872844).

Does Sony not like money or is this just a cynical game of keeping the rights to franchises while at the same time changing around parts to address the criticism they got for rebooting Spiderman franchise so soon?

To be fair, the Fantastic Four reboot being shit was due to trying too hard. The writer/director wanted to do a body-horror relatively serious sci-fi movie based on Fantastic Four, making a big deal about the weirdness of going into space and coming back elastic or invisible or capable of bursting into flames or being made of rock. Sony wanted to do a more marketable family movie with the familiar elements of the Fantastic Four, with the jumpsuits and saving New York from Doctor Doom with their wacky powers.

The result was a cast that wasn't close enough to classic FF due to being too young or having slightly different backgrounds, but the action was done in such a way that was too comic book movie-ish to be a gritty sci-fi horror, and the writing was too dry and SFish for a successful comic book blockbuster, but the comic's "Mr Fantastic and The Invisible Woman fight Viktor Von Doom" plot meant it couldn't be taken seriously as a proper work of SF.

Ghostbusters reboot looks bad because of how lazy it is. Cast popular female comic actors whose characters appear to be analogues of the original Ghostbusters crew, and just stick to the established formula the originals had.

This is pretty good ironing board TV (the TV you stick on while doing the ironing). Basically it's a fruity, grossly unscientific version of Which? magazine with a funky pop backing.

The 'inside tips' from the florists and whatnot are cool though. For example, I now know how to use a nail brush, a pair of rights and some cheap nail varnish to make old shoes look good.


Healy's pretty cute flouncing around too.

They've really got just how annoying, bumbling and naive Pierre should be down to a tee, which is something I quite like. That 10hr Soviet film version of it featuring Sergei Bondarchuk as Pierre and directing etc. honestly made him come across as a monumental ham.

They've gotten the understated charm and humour of Denisov spot on too.

This is what I have been fearing. You can find the theme on youtube but this might be one of those tracks I'm never going to have.

I've not read the book but I'm loving it so far. That Dolokhov is an absolute scoundrel and the cast have all done a great job in my mind which is helped by having so many experienced actors on hand.

The whole thing was excellent. It's been years since I read it, but from what I remember, everyone seems to have done their research in terms of characters, very accurate portrayals all around.

I was hoping they'd stretch it out longer, to be honest, but I don't suppose the Beeb could justify a 20 odd episode stretch.

Also, I'm fully in love with Lily James. Christ alive.

War and Peace was great. There was a turkey episode (can't remember if it was 3 or 4) that was just Russians flouncing around being spoilt twats, but most of them were very good.

The ending definitely tailed off disappointingly, though. I presume the serialised novel did also, when Tolstoy decided he'd got enough roubles per word.

I just can't stand that woman's face and voice.

A lad here once posted a video on how cans for fizzy drinks were made. Since then I have been trying to find good videos on how things are made.

While watching these videos, I realised why I liked them so much. Aside from learning how to make things, they are very therapeutic. So much so that I tested my blood pressure and heart rate many times over. These videos lower my blood pressure and heart rate without fail. I know it sounds stupid and weird, and I don't understand fully why this happens at all.

While on this journey to find things I like, my tastes became more refined. I really enjoy videos showing the whole process (speeding up on tedious areas), with close to zero talking person in the shot, etc.

Have one I watched today;


And if you have good ones like the one above, please share.

Who is your role model from television and film?

I've read how boring women will adopt their social expectations on the tv soaps they watch and it certainly explains how anime fans are the way they are. Seeing as how people spend so much time watching television these days its logical to assume that our social expectations are largely provided in this way which seems to me to be harmful as you either have as the main character:

1. The awkward nerdy guy
2. The indie movie social outcast

I'm wondering if there are certain shows that are good for you personality wise -like a guy who works hard and performs well in social situations. Think about it.

Any of you lads watching this? I was cautiously optimistic after watching the pilot, but after watching episodes 2 through 4, it just keeps getting better and better. The atmosphere and the world building are fantastic, the characters are interesting and the cast that's playing them is pretty good, and the story so far has got me hooked.

It's great to finally see some legitimately good sci-fi after all these years.

Well it is a short video of Sam Keen (an American philosopher lad who keeps talking about boring things like religion, who we are and understanding our emtions) discussing how we portray enemies, how we portray ourselves, and the steps we take to reach a final decision that killing millions of people is okay because they are rats, etc.
