  1. I can't believe anyone thought for a second that Amanda actually was new to the forum.

    Me neither.

    Still, for what it's worth, I was serious with this thread (unlike the 'Ive been raped' thread that I was about to post on Off Topic). Curb Your Enthusiasm HAS got shit production values. But apparently that's intentional.

    Anyway...Buffy, eh. Good fucking show, that.

  2. I've just watched 3 episodes of this show over the past 2 days on More4 at night, and it's great. My question is, has it been filmed with a camcorder? Why is the lighting and camerawork so bad? And so low-resolution? And not in widescreen?

    And the acting is appalling too - mainly Larry David.

    Apart from that, it's fantastic. Some really funny situations and scenes, reminds me of Fawlty Towers a bit. The bit with David Schwimmer's dad (and the car crash) made me laugh so much.

    Anyone else a fan? It's this great show...with the worst production values ever.

  3. Haha, yeah. They're INSANE. :)

    Everyone knows Buffy is a cheesy teen show about a girl who kills monsters. Why would anyone even watch it, I mean really what's the point? We can all judge it based on the adverts. Buffy meets monster, Buffy kills monster, the end.

    Speaking of, Citizen Kane, eh? People say it's got good writing, direction, acting and is generally good. What do they know - it's in black and white for fucks sake! I don't NEED to watch it, I already know it's lame american crap.

  4. As a general rule, wonky noses do not cause nausea. Unless they're swaying side to side and have that sea-sickness effect. Since a considerable amount of the movie was spent aboard a boat, that's a fair possibility.

    [...yeah, I'm not being serious. :P]

  5. I have hope for the inevitable Extended Edition that Jimmy will be fleshed a little bit more and hopefully, in more original ways.

    He doesn't need to be fleshed out, he needs something to do. I get the feeling his character was built up for a big moment, but then that big moment was cut out at the last minute for time reasons.

    Unless the absurd machine gun scene was his big payoff, in which case :P.

  6. When you say it had 'mature' storylines, what do you mean exactly?

    Did the robots start contemplating the futility of life as a machine? Did they start complaining about the lack of company pension schemes? Did they get Robot STDs? Did Reboot even have robots in it?

  7. The kids in Jurassic Park were way more developed and as annoying as they were in some scenes, they had a true purpose for being there. When they were in danger, there was some tension (even though you knew they wouldn't actually die) but with Bell, I didn't care if he lived or died as he was just a cookie cutter character.

    Yes, everyone read that, because he's right. :)

  8. The youngsters would have been able to relate to King Kong himeself more than Roger the Cabin Boy (or whatever he was called).

    And it would have been far more realistic to have Adrien Brody mention the Heart of Darkness stuff rather than the little boy who never went to school and was taken in for child slave labour.

    And Peter Jackson had full creative control over the script and movie, didn't he? The studio wouldn't have forced him to put in the character. I doubt he was in the original movie so I really can't figure out why Peter Jackson wrote him in anyway.

    And the kids in Jurassic Park were great! Look at their faces when Dr Grant gets electrocuted! The scene in the kitchen! The bit where Timmy follows Dr Grant around the car trying to talk to him! The T-REX SCENE!! They had loads of major scenes. Jamie Bell just stood around talking about some book he was reading at the time.

  9. The little subplot between the vice captain bloke and Billy Elliot was cringe-inducingly bad and completely without point. Cut that out of the DVD version as well.

    Knowing Peter Jackson, the DVD will have an extended cut of the film with Even More Pointless Billy Elliot Scenes.

  10. I've never seen an episode, but I've seen the cheesy opening sequence. I hate those opening sequences where the characters are standing looking at the camera whilst the camera swerves around them one by one (eg Smallville), it always looks terrible.

  11. There is, probably, a good film in there. There WAS too much action, too many chases that ended in near disaster and then, just when all looked last, a last minute rescue! Phew. Hmmmmmm.

    I think all you really need to do is remove ALL the Jamie Bell stuff (10 minutes worth?) remove the ice-skating scene completely, and cut 15 minutes more of the ship stuff (eg the scene they were filmed on the ships deck with the dodgy greenscren), and it'd be perfect.

    Maybe there'll be an option on the Extended DVD to watch an Unextended And Bit Extra Taken Off version of the movie.

  12. Yeah, my ex storyboarded it, and stuff.. it was meant to be better, with vehicles morphing into the next, etc... Guess they didn't want to spend a ton. It was initially going to be a bike trying to jump a canyon, failing but then going into a hot air balloon. There's something for you fact fans.

    That's really interesting, especially the original concept and how it's completely changed from that.

    And it I think it works great as it is, without CGI transformations. I think they might have 'cheapened' it a bit.

    And I love the ending "I couldn't have put it better myself.". :ph34r:

    Give your ex a pat on the back!
