are those geico commercials where the dude is on the motorcycle, covered in money filmed at a higher frame rate? something's funky about how those commercials look

Not familiar with it but very possibly. This is why soap operas look the way they do on your tv. They are actually filmed at higher rates than normal programming.

Wow, that's actually kind of amazing. The higher frame rate gives it an almost 3D look without causing the shift in focal point that '3D' necessitates.

That was at 60fps instead of 48, so 2.5 times as many frames instead of just twice as many. But it is a good indication of what a higher frame right will look like. I doubt anyone has their PC monitor and video card set to 48hz. 60hz is the default for most tvs and pc monitors.

That is also exactly what the 120hz and 240hz tvs attempt to do when you enable settings like Auto Motion Plus or Tru Motion on them.

Since my tv does not have a 24p mode, I've screwed around using an htpc program called Smooth Video Project to convert 24fps to 60fps on the fly.

I have an awesome girlfriend. The other night, we watched Gymkata & The Story of Ricky, and she loved both. you have no idea how important it is to me that my significant other enjoys the movie Gymkata.

she liked Troll 2, too. but Gymkata is a different kind of bad. Troll 2 gets you confused about technical aspects like writing and acting. Gymkata gets you confused about things like, "if this country is in western asia, why does the king look like walter matthau, and his daughter is asian, and his top advisor is australian?" "why do you need a ninja to hold a flag showing the race boundaries?" things like that. it's much easier to dismiss a movie like Gymkata

'The Sessions' was good. I wasn't blown away or anything, but I was actively engaged the whole time watching. John Hawkes was really solid in it. Helen Hunt's boston accent (or lack thereof) got kind of distracting at times, which is too bad, since she was good aside from that. For some reason IMDb only lists it as a "Drama" which is strange as there are quite a few funny moments in it, and I never felt it get too too heavy, at least not enough to merit a pure drama genre.

So reading up on Gymkata, what are the features that make it more impressive than regular karate. I can't seem to grasp what elements of gymnastics that would enhance karate. All I can think of is a faster, more agile karate.

It's at Squirell Hill, Waterworks, and the Waterfront at the moment. Just came out a couple weeks ago I believe. I highly doubt it'll expand out to more theatres though.

You Have to imagine a world where parallel bars and pommel horses randomly exist in town squares, and where ninjas and lunatics wait one at a time to attack you

Gymkata sounds like my kind of bad movie (see: Double Dragon). Will definitely have to check this one down the road whenever I get the time.

Are there really pommel horse like structures in the town square? I will concede that a gymnast would definitely have some sort of an advantage if the battle were staged in a playground come to think of it.

Yeah, there is literally a scene where he fights off a mob of cannibalistic lunatics by doing a pommel horse routine in the middle of a town square.

my absolute favorite part is towards the middle of the movie, he is being chased by some guys, and there is a bar just above the street. so he jumps up and starts swinging, and kicks a guy in the face. then he keeps swinging and kicks another guy in the face. then a random dude on a bicycle comes around, and he kicks HIM in the face too.
