Spoiler:
pepper definitely was. but it's a moot point, because apparently, they don't need pilots anyway.

But they are trying to converge at different lengths to focus on whatever object is popping out, that could be closer than the screen or further away.

This is the biggest problem with 3D.... it actually isn't 3D! The image is still being projected onto a flat surface a fixed distance from your eyes, so your focal length never changes.

Walter Murch had a great rant about this, I think it was a letter to Roger Ebert a couple years ago. (You actually may have been the one to share it here, ps33) If the first (and I believe only) person to ever win Oscars for editing both sound and picture says 3D is junk, then I'm inclined to agree with that.

completely agree, watched it not too long ago for the first time, really liked it.

Thirded.... probably my favorite live action Disney movie after the first POTC.

The guy that created the giant squid was brought out of retirement to make the mechanical shark(s) in "Jaws".


Nice one, never knew that.

WWZ was cool. Pretty intense. I never read the book so I'm not sure why those people took such offense with the movie, but I would like to know

Because it was nothing like the book. I would have been fine with the movie had they called it something else. The movie wasn't bad as a standard zombie flick, but to call it World War Z is an insult to the book.

I have the book, but haven't read it yet, without spoiling too much if the movie already didn't, what's the big difference between them?

The book is told by multiple people through multiple points of view from around the world.

Gravity sounds and looks like it's a great premise, but I don't think I'd be able to sit through Sandra Bullock yelling for 2 hours.

correct me if i'm wrong on this, but i believe the book is sort of a story told through a compilation of various accounts of the zombie apocalypse. like no central POV, and the story is more the sum of the collective experience.

Kind of.

The story is written by a journalist who has traveled around collecting the stories from World War Z. The book is then written as if an interview has taken place with these people as they tell their story of survival and what the aftermath of the apocalypse has left them feeling.

The book is fantastic for a mini-series or television series, but a movie could never do the book justice because of how it was written.

Saw Enough Said. Got really awkward for a bit, but overall watchable. A life after divorce movie and I'd say about taking ownership of your own **** instead of focusing on the other person's ****.

The only thing that they really had in common was the name of the main character and the title. The style of zombies, the cause, the resolution... all different.

If you watch the movie you need to IGNORE the concept of physics and what the human body is physically capable of doing. Not quite as bad as I Am Legend, but heading down that path.

I read a synopsis of the movie and the orbital maneuvers supposedly undertaken. I'm looking forward to using science to ruin everyone's enjoyment of the film.

I'd sit through Sandra Bullock yelling directly at me for 2 hours.

I've always had a crush on Sandra Bullock.

Due to her fashion and class Bullock is one of the hottest "big name" actress out there right now. I am not saying that she is #1, but she is well ahead of the curve.

I really want to see that. I forgot about it until the commercials just recently started to run again, presumably because its now for rent.
