this would be cool for prints


i dont get it

the images that make the film are compressed into a single line and smashed together to make a representation of the color palette that defines the film.

if that makes sense.



Aaaaaand they did Salo. As if seeing it once wasn't enough.

I think the big issue for that was that it created 8 discrete audio channels - five 'stage', stereo surround, low freq effects (LFE). While I personally much preferred having more channels behind the image for smoother panning, only something like 5% or 6% of the films that had SDDS soundtracks actually made use of all eight audio channels; most were straight up 5.1 mixes, as the vast majority of theaters that installed SDDS decoders didn't go to the additional (and substantial) expense of adding more speakers behind the screens and more power amps in the backline. Sony stopped making new encoders and decoders about ten years ago.

The overall audio quality wasn't that good (5:1 compression, low bit rate) with SDDS, but the expansion of the soundstage with the two extra screen channels was pretty impressive. The only two 8-channel SDDS mixes I ever experienced were "Star Wars Episode I" and "Black Hawk Down", both extremely good examples of film sound in general. And both films were top notch presentations in world-class theaters.

Don't know what they'll do to make it better, but anything could be better than JPIII.

I am interested to see which, if any, dinos they add.

I get what your saying and remember thinking the same thing, especially when Leo was all excited about entertaining him with the German speaking slave girl. I think the idea is just that Leo never would have accepted their visit if they weren't in the Mandingo business. Basically they needed the Mandingo angle to get their foot in the door.


Spoiler:
Yeah, that's what King pretty much explains to Django beforehand -- he knows about him and he knows he wouldn't entertain them if that were their sole goal. Plus I don't think they ever planned on spending a dime there.

And also, gotta say, even though I thought it was a good, but not great movie, the bag scene seriously had me in stitches. So damn funny.

Finally got around to watching Taken. Good, not great. About halfway through Iron Man. Enjoying it so far.

Iron Man was good. Just have to watch Thor and The Incredible Hulk now and I'll be caught up on all the "Avengers" movies...

I'm picking up my baby tonight
Though her daddy's making trouble
It will be alright
I'm working hard, I don't know why
I'm like a working class dog
And I just get by
Tonight I'm crawling out from in it
And though we're livin' on the brink
Second by second by minute by minute

Love Is Alright Tonight
We're gonna be alright
Love Is Alright

Couple horror flics that, while not elite, actually surprisingly held water. Hunger and, believe it or not, Hostel III. Both easily could have lost it, but actually had me until their ends.

The 1st movie can never be topped imo.

The mystery of entering into a new world, like in JP1, is lost in any subsequent movies. Ultimately I think it's one of the big reason's JP was so good.

Not to mention every dinosaur will be totally CGI, and will look totally fake, unlike the animatronic dinosaur sequences in the original.

What? The majority of dinos were CGI in the first.

Yeah, but they also mixed in the animatronics for some of the scenes.

Wasn't the T-Rex purely animatronics, or at least the majority of it?

Shots containing just the Rex's head were animatronics. Every other shot was CGI. CGI in general has gotten MUCH worse in the sake of "realism" IMO.

Just watched The Incredible Hulk. Like Captain America, thought it was good, not great.

One complaint about these Marvel movies however:
Spoiler:
It seems like in every movie, the hero is so strong that the only thing that can stand against them is the same technology... kind of starting to get old to me.
