hey guys, good day?
i popped into jessops earlier. a convo with my gf's dad yesterday about camera gear capable of very long exposure shots proved that old technology triumphs over new- ive borrowed a praktica BMS, lens for it, and went and bought a film and cable release today. hoping to take a shot tonight, for about 2 hours, and the same tomorow.

A 2 hour exposure?? I hope you live a long, long, way from any street lights!!!! :eek: :wacko:

But yes, in theory film is much better for long exposures than digital. :nice:

nope... if i could, id be at my dads- middle of nowhere, no light pollution, perfect.
ive set it for an hour currently, can take quite a few pics so hopefully some will be good.
whilst i was out setting it up, i saw a shooting star- pretty cool!

If you are lucky the light pollution will cause an eerie glow. If you are unlucky your pic will look like it was taken during the day (if the day was orange)! :thinking:

For what it's worth, Google Sky Maps is one of the coolest apps I have downloaded on my new Android phone. Basically you hold the phone up to the sky, and the names of all the stars and constellations, that the phone is pointing at, are overlaid on the screen!! :eek: Very clever stuff! :banana:

The answer to those questions are as follows:

Problem - The President's Neck is Missing Starring Troy MacClure.
Answer - Buried under mountainous trapezius muscles.

Problem - Crouching Willy, Hidden Gonads.
Answer - If they're steroid-monkeys, it's the overabundance of their drug of choice that's turning their grapes into raisins. Steroids don't actually do much to bringing down Wang Tower. The reason a lot of them lift at all is to compensate for the sad fact that their gift was a small one to begin with. ZING!

I have a solution to all the PS3 problems, do what I'm thinking about doing, just sell the bloody thing! It's a waste of time.
You go online for some Black ops action just to be kicked from games and sometimes not even get in a game for up to 30 mins. Then you have the constant freezing and all the other BS with that game. So you place GTA in and constantly get people attacking you with a heli even if your over the other side of the map away from everyone.

I bought my PS3 for 1 game and that was GTA. I completed the game and have to admit, nearly all the games I've had i have had more fun with them online. So if i can't get online whats the point in having it.
I wouldn't go out and buy a sports car just to have it sat on the drive to look good.

Also, has anyone else noticed the distinct lack of quality games recently? Most are kids games.

That's a question only you can answer. :blink:

I bought mine for Final Fantasy XIII and subsequent games. :lol: I was also hoping that it would play ALL my PS games, but that was a dream shattered by Sony's BS "people aren't interested in backwards compatibility," and by the time I could afford one that feature was stripped. My first console was an Atari 2600, so having a new machine play the old games I "invested in" years before that I still loved was a dream come true, like in the way the PS2 was with PS1 software. Can't win 'em all. I wonder what the PS4 will do for that. It might be PS1, PS2, and PS3 BC…provided you REPURCHASE EVERYTHING in DOWNLOAD FORM on PSN. (PSN = Pilfer Steal Network, BTW.) Or Sony'll flip their Bics at us again, using that old line, "no one's interested in those old games anymore." I know for a fact the PS4 won't have an optical drive at all - it'll be a Cloud Gaming unit. Just a rudimentary solid state memory of some kind probably for individual user settings. Everything else will be stored on some HD in Timbuktu. I'll pass, thank you, and just continue to run my PS2 and PS3 until their wheels fall off. By then reliable PS1/2/3 emulation might be available and I could just run them on my my computer. Who knows?

Also, has anyone else noticed the distinct lack of quality games recently? Most are kids games.
Not sure about the glut of kids' games, If you're talking about Telletubbies prancing about, sticking their head-prongs into each other and devil sun babies hovering in the sky, then I haven't seen that. But the issue with quality is all part of the age we live in. Too many software devs are under the gun from their publisher to get something out the door at a specific deadlne, so they release the danged thing in beta form, and with SOME luck the developer will still be in business long enough to release a patch that will fix most of the problems the beta testers…er,I mean…the people that bought the game…are having.

Often, though, the dev goes broke or they lay off the dev team that created the stupid game so there's no support to fix a game that promised so much yet delivered so little. This was a problem isolated to only PCs for a long, long time, but now that video game consoles are hard drive-equipped and internet-enabled, they've been hit with the same halfassery. It used to be that the game was finished, complete, and bug-free before it hit the shelves because they didn't get another chance to make it right. Not anymore.

BTW, this whole PSN fracas has put me in some bad graces with my webspace host. Since I killed my CC, my host has sent me a "There's a problem with your account" email about three hours ago. Thankfully they have a 2-week grace period, provided you take the appropriate actions to contact them (which I did). I feel they're a little expensive (about $27 per quarter) but they give pretty good service, so I shouldn't complain.

cool! i have an app called starwalk on my ipad- it basicaly is as if your sat in the center of a sphere, and you can tilt the screen to look up, down left, right etc, and it will show planets, stars, constellations, galaxies, constellations, and will zero into where you are so that it gives you what you can see- plus a database full of other stuff you can't.

All I can say is that I never liked any of the Play Station systems after the first, I've always been xbox! and I don't do online because I don't have High Speed net service where I live. I'm so far out of the network I can't even get satelite high speed.

Ragnarok
05-01-2011, 11:50 AM
I was never an Xbox fan because the titles I was interested in playing were Sony exclusives (FF, Gran Turismo, Metal Gear, etc.). Plus the PS2 played all my old PS1 games, so for me it wasn't practical to switch horses mid-race. However, with this current lineup of systems and in the case of the most recent FF game, it was cross-platform but the XB360 version was on three DVDs and in 576p low-res, whereas the PS3 version was on one disc (BluRay) and 1080p HD. If I had a traditional CRT telebizzin then that'd be less of an issue, but I got an LCD HDTV for a few reasons, one of which being high-resolution video and gaming. It's no so much brand loyalty as it is "I go where the games I play will be."

Sort of a side-note and one that will only matter to me :lol:, at the moment only the first iteration of FF13 is cross-platform: subsequent FF13 games which are Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Final Fantasy Versus XIII, are going to be PS3 exclusives, so I really don't have an interest in buying another system and having to "feed" that one too. :chug:

Crysis 2







@ Rag, I'm a big FF fan (since VII), but was very disapointed with the last one. As far as RPG's go, I have enjoyed the Fallout series much more in recent years. New Vegas was awesome, but FO3 and Oblivion were great too.
They are kind of 'RPG/Shooters', but good for me as I enjoy both genres!!

Ragnarok
05-01-2011, 12:19 PM
I know that a lot of people didn't gel with the latest FF, and I sympathize. Gameplay-wise it felt a little too much like 12, which more or less played itself and I hated it with a passion. (I'll still probably play though 12, though. :lol:…I mean :nono:…wait, :lol:) Story-wise, I was really digging 13 (with the exception of that Bieber-esque douche funnel named Hope, and Vanille making [dare I say it] orgasm-sounds everywhere she went), but I ran into a saturation point (I do with most RPGs) and put it down. Unfortunately, I haven't touched it in so long I may have to start over just to remember what the heck I was doing. :p

I was really looking forward to the new Deus Ex game, but it's an FPS, and I get flustered and dizzy playing those. It really disappoints me because the graphics, music and story looked/sounded absolutely killer. :(

That's one of the reasons I've stayed with Xbox because of the Halo, and after my first xbox I really like the feel of the controller over the PS controllers.

going back at the astronomy tonight- big time. got the dslr and the praktica both on tripods, and ive set up a tent with lots of warm clothes in the garden. going to stay out all night- probs sleeping with the alarm going off every now and then to alert me to check/take more photos- so i can get some decent stuff.
theres cloud tonight, but i can make out plenty of stars and there was still some light up. after 12 it should be fine, provided theres not much cloud. if there is, ill pack it all up and enjoy a nice cosy night in the tent :lol:

ive just had a look with the dslr- one of the pics i took, the light pollution seems to be giving an eerie orange glow. well chuffed! you can make out stars and all sorts. the only problem is, im not sure what star is polaris- i figure by pointing the camera north, at different angles upwards im bound to catch it.

i really hope some of the pictures from the praktica come out half as good as the olympus. im getting the orange glow, but crystal clear stars- just had a plane go over too, whilst its not picking the stars movement, the plane looks awesome.
ill deffo upload these.

ALRIGHT, you TWENTY-TWELVERS! Here's sommat fo' youse to chew on…
Mayan Calendar May Be Off by 50 Years or More ( http://www.latino.foxnews.com/latino/lifestyle/2011/05/03/mayan-calendar-off-wrong-50-years)

Some key info:
Get your calendars out, because there may be a correction to make as a growing list of skeptics – including the Minneapolis professor who re-arranged the zodiac – say the end of Mayan calendar may be off.
Way off.
If you buy into the doomsday deadline, the Mayan calendar comes to an end in just 600 days. But some experts now believe that a miscalculation that occurred while converting the Mayan calendar to our own could be between 50 to 100 years off.
So far, it seems nothing – not even the planets – are lining up as predicted.

Just about every recent disaster has seemed apocalyptic – from earthquakes and tsunamis to record tornados – but some still aren’t taking the bait.

“It’s so absurd,” said Parke Kunkel.

Kunkel, an astronomy professor in Minneapolis, said the stars and planets just aren’t lining up according to the Mayan myth, which states the Earth and Sun will align with the black hole at the center of the Milky Way.
Okay, here's where I have a problem with this "Mayan Prophecy." Black Holes weren't identified until the 20th century. Is the current translation (which was made by whom, by the way?) suggesting that the Mayans knew what a black hole was and there may be one at the center of our galaxy? We're dealing with anachronisms of serious proportions.
Though December 21, 2012, has essentially become the new Y2K, for the astronomer, it’s just another day at the office.
“The only significance for me is, I’m going to have a bonfire in the driveway because it’s the winter solstice,” said Kunkel.

Another Mayan prophesy claims a rogue planet or moon will suddenly crash into the Earth, but that space invader should theoretically be visible in the southern hemisphere by now.

Kunkel said he believes the reason the apocalypse theory has caught on is because it’s a great way to sell books and movies.
Regarding the boldface in this segment, the greatest likelihood is a meteor or comet rather than rogue planets or moons.

After all of the big earthquakes, "Fingers of God" tornadoes, and other serious storms and events, I'm certainly willing to agree with the idea that "it's not the end of the world, but you can see it from here." Big events like this have always happened, and far, far worse have been and will be. The singular difference is it how that will affect a modern civilization. But the Apocalypse is far more than just natural disasters - we still have freakishly horrific man-made disasters in the form of Armageddon, one-world tyrannies, world-wide economic collapse, induced famines, genocide in every country, and other Babylonian-minded catastrophes to deal with before that. And when all of those things are in full swing, then maybe a big comet landing in the Himalayas would be a refreshing change. :nice: <-- I guess.

Bit of frost bite there, Rag?

The only thing I am expectantly waiting upon in december next year is amusement watching the panic merchants running around like ... er, they did in 1999.

I remember on the 21st of Dec, 1999 there was a black out in my town. It was a hot day, and I bet everyone had their aircon cranked. The local paper reported it as "Is this an early warning of the millennium bug?" - Front page headline.

Back to the root of this. The Mayan calendar shows this current cycle ending, not the world. Like seasons, they had cycles of fire and cycles of water. That's all, it's like "It's the last day of spring, WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE".

As for it being the last entry equating in doom, shouldn't that mean the world ends on Dec 31 every year? Why trust their calendar over ours?

The world didn't end in 1993, 1999 and it won't end in 2012, well, by anything to do with Mayans. After all, they could not foretell the end of their world, right?

Rag my rebuttle...

Yes It is becoming evident that the translation of the Mayan calendar was wrong. The black hole, which was known by the Mayan astronomers, not by name or course, alignment with the sun and earth is on a 2600 year cycle. Now the earth has gone through at least five catastrophic periods where all life ceased to exist. It is believed that this happens on these 2600 year cycles also. This is what is supposed to cause the 2012 situation, It has been found that the last time the earth's polarity switched.

So no it probably won't happen next year and when it does it aint going to matter anyway to me because I'll be worm food!

Im in agreeance with the people running around all crazy like Y2K. Well, in my small town on Dec 31st 1999 most people were too drunk to care, but either way, I plan on being out of town during the "2012" prophecy date. People individually can be intelligent, people as a whole are mindless, dangerous, panicky creatures......and I want nothing to do with them during another dooms-day theory. I foresee looting and riots, so I shall sit in the sticks with my trusty radio and CB until the madness subsides.

You might be interested in a book by Isaac Asimov, called Nightfall. It explores a similar concept, except the planet isn't Earth, and it orbits six suns. These suns never set in conjunction - there's always at least one or more in the sky at all times. A scientist discovers these historical phases on the planet in soil strata, and it's then found that civilizations have been collapsing in measurable intervals. Pretty soon it's postulated that these civilizations collapse in conjunction with all the suns setting at once, and they're at the verge of the next one. What causes the collapses is world-wide mass hysteria. These people never know a time of real darkness. It's an awesome book. One can use the analogy of sunlight to technology in any and all forms. Imagine if the world's internet was turned off, or entire countries' power grids were taken down. Something very similar to the book would happen in real life.

I preferred the novel over the short story (I read both in high school). AVOID THE MOVIE. Roger Corman was the producer and there's maybe three western actors in it, including autoerotic-asphyxiation legend Hung Fu…I mean David Carradine. The rest are Bollywood washouts that would work for $20/week.

Sorry to flog a locked horse, but i just read this:

Pakistan alerted the US to suspicions about Osama bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad as far back as 2009, the country's Foreign Secretary has revealed.

Salman Bashir said American concerns over whether it could trust Pakistan's security and intelligence services were "misplaced" and insisted it had extended "every co-operation" to the US and played a "pivotal role" in the fight against terror.

Islamabad is smarting over Washington's decision not to inform it in advance of the audacious special forces raid which led to the killing of the al Qaida leader in a city which is home to Pakistan's elite officer training college.

CIA director Leon Panetta has said the Pakistani authorities were not told in advance because of fears that the information would be leaked, allowing bin Laden the opportunity to flee.

The row blew up as the White House released further details of bin Laden's death, revealing that the terrorist mastermind was unarmed when he was shot dead by US Navy Seal commandos, and did not attempt to shelter behind his wife as initially believed.

Mr Panetta also revealed that the US is considering releasing photos of bin Laden's body and its burial at sea, to counter suspicions in the Arab world and internet conspiracy theories that he might still be alive.

Meanwhile, bin Laden's daughter has claimed that her father was captured alive and then shot dead by US special forces in the first few minutes of their 40-minute operation at his compound, according to reports.

The Arabic news network Al-Arabiya quoted "senior Pakistani security officials" as saying that the 12-year-old said her father was shot dead in front of his family before being dragged to a US military helicopter. The body of bin Laden's son was also reportedly taken away by helicopter.

Al-Arabiya also quoted security sources as saying that bin Laden family members - including six children, one of Osama's wives and a Yemeni woman who may be their personal doctor - had been transported to hospital in Rawalpindi, near the capital Islamabad.

White House spokesman Jay Carney has insisted the US commandos were prepared to take bin Laden alive, but said he was "resisting" when he was shot dead.

Sorry for bringing it up, but it always make me laugh when people defend such monsters! Next they will be saying hunting him down was against his human rights and his family is suing for the years on the run?

I'm sorry again, but what about the many many innocent unarmed dead due to him? Makes me sick! Don't investigate, finish the job and kill everyone he was affiliated with too.

When I was younger I used to help at my Mom's work. She was a social worker for adults with Down Syndrome or other problems. Anyway it was around the time the McKenzie brother got popular. This one guy that she worked with was obsessed and called everybody hozer. I can remember very vividyl one day going with my mom to see him and i was wearing some kind of baseball cap and as soon as I walked in the door he was "hey, hey, your hats a hozer" I just about peed myself laughing!

I do everything around the house to earn my keep. We are getting a fence installed around most of the backyard but there is a corner of it that's outside the fence. The previous owners used it as a dumping ground for yard waste and stuff. And since the city where I live is called "the sandstone center of the world" there are plenty of bits of sandstone to build some obstacles.

It's a monumental struggle, but I am. For lunch I had one o' my wrap dealies:
A flour tortilla scorched over a burner on the stove. I like whole wheat ones better because they have more flavor and aren't as chewy so they don't need to be scorched as heavily as the white flour ones, but I'm back to white ones 'cause I need a change. :lol:
A bit of Light Ranch salad dressing. I get Hidden Valley because its consistency really is just like their regular Ranch. Store brands are more like a creamy vinaigrette, which is fine for some things but not this.
A healthy sprinkling of "Zesty" seasonings (black and red pepper, garlic, onion, dehydrated tomato, orange peel, etc.). I get a store brand because it's ground coarser than Mrs. Dash, which is more like a dust.
A very thin slice of medium or sharp cheddar. Gotta be thin - thick slices make the "feel" of the wrap too hard or gummy, and I dun like that.
Some deli-cut lunchmeat of some kind. I also like to have some lettuce, but the lettuce we get up here is TEH SUXXORZ! It's half rotten most of the time.

I have some variation of this for lunch every day unless the leftovers from the night before are "mettle more attractive." It's something that I kinda came up with on my own and I prefer it over a traditional sandwich.
Type away Rag, we all care what you think! I jus not anser coz ov da big words i cant weed sumtimz:nice:
Naw, my complaints with the prequel trilogies are pretty much the same as any one else's
Pathetic actors playing Anakin Skywalker. Even though it would have required filming Episodes 2 and 3 later than they were, Garrett Hedlund, the actor that played Sam Flynn in Tron: Legacy, would have been 100X the Anakin that Hayden Christiansen was. Why? His voice for one - it's more believable to have Hedlund's slightly raspy baritone than Hayden's Canadianified Ritchie Cunningham tenor transition to James Earl Jones' basso profundo. In fact, Hayden's inflections were borderline effeminate. Hedlund also has a darker brooding expression to his face. In contrast, Hayden looked like a typical babyface punk that would have starred in a Saved by the Bell knockoff. Now backing up to Episode 1, casting Jake Lloyd, that annoying little dork from Jingle All the Way, was a crime against all of Star Wars fandom. His acting abilities are more suited to a Life cereal commercial, not the innocent, larval stage of cinema's greatest tragic villain. They should have cast older, like 12 years old instead of 9 or 10 - even if they had to find a male equivalent of Dakota Fanning. <shudder> I think the pool of available *good* child actors would have been far better.
Natalie Portman as a piece of wood to which hair and makeup in freakish architectural form have been applied. The then-unknown Keira Knightley's part as the Queen's body double had far more cinematic impact and importance in my book. My most reviled scene with her? The one where the best she could do was a deadpan "To be angry is to be human" after Anakin's little episode of genocide. I realize that actors just say what they're told to say (I give serious blame to Lucas on this one too) but, holy crap! The delivery was a travesty.
Okay, now let's cram NaPo and Hayden in the same complaint: their romance in Episode 2. That was so unbelievable and so uninterestingly constructed. I didn't "feel the love" at all. I think that their relationship in Episode 3 was more palpable, particularly in that scene after Anakin has turned heel and slaughtered everyone in the Jedi temple. It has this long, dark drone of low strings as the film cuts back and forth between Anakin and Padme in this interesting and unsettling reflective contrast. I quite liked that scene, actually. But at this point, they've been married a while and Luke and Leia are on the way. It's the courtship that was the steaming pile of Bantha hokum.
Wasting Liam Neeson's talents. I think he was asleep most of the time. There were times where Qui-Gon was the archetypical Jedi Master: reverent, temperate and reserved. But there were other times where was it obvious to me that Liam wanted to be doing something else. I also felt a little cheated when he wasn't featured in spirit-form in Episode 3. Yoda had to tell Obi-Wan about Qui-Gon's discovery of trans-Force-communication (I don't know what they call it :lol:) rather than actually show it with Qui-Gon saying "Hey! Check this out!" They could have done it, but I'm sure there was some kind of scheduling issues or other excuse.
Jar-Jar Binks. Why was he there at FREAKING all? Did the focus groups think there had to be some kind of mentally-impaired, arguably-racist-stereotype, anthropomorphic Hadrosaur-meets-Elmo in the movie, or did Lucas come up with that floppy-eared abomination all on his own? Boss Nass was actually half-way interesting, but that's as far as I'll go with anything resembling a compliment in regard to Gungans.
Count Dooku. Really? They get one of the more infamous actors to every playe Dracula, and they call his character Count Dooku? :rolleyes: <groan> It's a flipping insult. His Sith name was far more awesome.
Pod-racing. :nono: The amazing chariot race from Ben-Hur (one of my mostest favoritest movies) mixed with NASCAR, and then take out about fifty IQ points. I don't know how some of the most dynamic speed sequences put on film could still be so dumb, like the fingers-on-chalkboard binary-headed announcer calling the race, and that freaking Lloyd kid, whose sub-Disney Channel acting was so painfully loathsome that I…I just…GYAHH!!! :rant: The best part was with the two Tusken rednecks doing their demonstration of "guns-n'-beer-don't-mix."
The Trade Federation guys (Nute Gunray, Rune Haako, etc.) all had these goofy pseudo-Italian accents. What was that about? "Someday you'll return the favor."
Anakin's stepdad, Cliegg "One-Leg" Lars. "Oh, yeah, your mom was taken by Tusken Raiders for some reason we haven't come up with yet, and we kinda decided it was too much work to go looking for her. So, uh, yeah, she's probably dead. Like some Tang?" After that I can kinda understand why Vader gave Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru the Kentucky Fried Chicken treatment in Episode 4. That look Anakin gave everyone when he returned with his mother's body kinda foreshadowed that event (which does not count as things I didn't like - this scene actually worked). By the way, are there Scandinavians in space? "Lars," "Nute," "Rune"…"Jensen"?
The C-Span caliber political "intrigue." <angry yawn doused with incoherent profanity> I completely understand that there's a serious political aspect to the whole overthrow of the Republic - it's KEY to the importance the rebellion thing in the original trilogy. But - wow! - it was so blasted danged boring. (Warning: If nothing else before already has, I know this next one is going to tick some people off… :()
Finally, above all, I think the whole Star Wars saga itself is a story that is far greater than Lucas' ability to tell it. The original trilogy was an accidental epic, and the prequels really showed how insufficent Lucas' storytelling talent is. Notice that the movies were better when Lucas wasn't behind the camera.

I could go on and on, but I think it would just be too repetitious and I'm sure I've already enraged RockEd Out with my riotous blasphemy. :angel: What I should do is outline the things I liked (now there's a novel idea!). :lol:

The music. Duh. :lol: I thought that "The Duel of the Fates" and "Battle of the Heroes" are two of John Williams' best work, period.
Darth Maul. Although I think there was a huge opportunity lost to flesh out his character a bit, he was danged cool. He was scary in a totally different way than Vader. He wasn't humanity-lost, he was humanity-demonic. The double-ended saber gimmick was pretty rad, too.
Ewan MacGregor as Obi-Wan was actually pretty good casting. He's a bit overbearing as Anakin's master in Episode 2, but overall I think it worked quite well.
The light saber fights. As goofy as the Yoda vs. Dooku fight was, the others were flipping epic! It makes the fights in the original trilogies look downright catatonic. :blink: Lucas gave some reasons to justify the less active sword fights in the "later" episodes, which I guess I'll accept. One, Vader is mostly machine and doesn't move too quickly, and two, Luke was trained by a nearly-1000-year-old Jedi frog in retirement. So there you go.
The fact Lucas didn't pull any punches when Anakin is beaten by Obi-Wan and left to die on the shore of that river of lava. (Pretty merciless of Obi-Wan if you ask me. Why didn't he just put him out of his misery?) We see the horrific, destroyed state Anakin is in and it's understandable why the "Vader suit" is necessary. It earned its PG-13 rating on that scene all by itself.
The one bit of good acting from Hayden Christiansen: where he finds his mother in the Tusken camp. When she's dying, I think his response looks pretty convincing, and when she does die, his reaction to kill anything and everything was very easy to accept. (However, NaPo's response when he tells her what he did in that camp IS NOT!) I think that if I was in the same situation with his abilities I would have been tempted to do the same thing. Probably most people that saw it did. So to that end I credit Lucas for making certain aspects of Anakin's turning to the Dark Side easy for the audience to identify with.


As a whole, there's nothing like Star Wars, and also in total I enjoyed them, but the room for improvement was so vast in the prequel trilogies that I wonder if it would have been better had they never been made, or at the very least made by someone else. :blink:

just to pick on count duckoo did anyone in the edited film release actually say "Darth Tyranus" at any point? all I got was Jango Fett "I was hired by a man called Tyranus..." - Darth Sidious calls him "My apprentice"...

Overall, the prequels (like too many newer films) suffered from excessive CGI. Anything is possible, so let's load the film up with all the cool stuff we wished we could have done in 1977. And string the effects together with some story.

The original three had a butt-load of effects, but they were expensive and difficult, so they were used sparingly, and the films concentrated on the story.

Well since we are dissecting the Star Wars Saga, Rag first of all, I agree with your comments 100%, I like Lucas's vision but he has no idea how to put the story together. He should've hired P.J. to flesh the prequels out for him. The Og Trilogy was all based on Lucas' ideas but the story was fleshed by others, until he demanded the Ewoks. The Ewoks, I can fully appreciate, a little corny, but not as bad as Gungans. Jar Jar was supposed to be the character that the little kids liked and ended up being the one they hated. Lucas should've had Anakin take him out in EP3.

As far as almost all of the actors go, other than Liam, which could've done wonders for the EP1 was left hog tied to ridiculous lines and story boards, I did like Ewan McGregor and the fact that his unlce was Wedge Antilles in the Og tril was pretty cool. Darth Maul could've added more to the story also but they killed him off and gave him little screen time (Lucas was trying to capitalize on Boba Fett cultish following with Maul, No back story, short screen time, cool unique design).
Here are the three things I hated the most of the prequels
1. Jake Loyd- the whole scene where he accidentally flies a Naboo fighter and accidentally takes out the control ship and still makes it out alive (C'MON!)
2. The whole thing with the droids, like Anakin or Obi Wan would've forgotten them, the droids get their memory erased but that doesn't explain Vadr or Kenobi not remembering them.
3. Jar Jar Binks, any and all scenes he was in!

There is actually an absolute totally lost my respect for the prequels scene or idea, Mitoclorians- in Ep4 Kenobi says to Luke the Force is an energy field is flows through us and all around us.....then in ep1 its some kind of measurable organism in the blood that gives the power of force WTF?????

The three best things from the prequels
1. The Mustafar scenes, the entire ending was great, except for the line " I have the higher ground"

2. Qui Gon Gin, excellent character, should've been so much farther developed

3. THe Clone Troopers, I thought the Uniforms and the transition to storm tropper uniforms was well played, and the Clones could actually hit something with their blasters!

That's my review of the Prequels, I won't go into the Og Trilogy because bad mouthing them is Sacrilege!

Peter Jackson and Star Wars? That's heresy like I've never seen before. :rolling: Ya dang right, though - he would have not only made Anakin's fall believable and heartfelt, you would have cried at the end of it all.

3. Jar Jar Binks, any and all scenes he was in!

The only thing I can figure is Obi-Wan simply said he didn't remember owning any droids - nobody asked if he knew them. It's sort of an economy of responsibility, like the "Vader killed your father" line to get ol' Luke fired up to take on Vader only for Luke to feel betrayed later on by Obi-Wan in Ep.6. Obi-Wan was technically right, but it wasn't a complete explanation. I agree though. Kind of a noticeable inconsistency.

All I can figure is Lucas had to come up with a plot device so that they had some way of quantifiable measurement of "who had more Force than someone else." It was a bit silly and undermined the spiritual aspect of The Force. The only other way Lucas could have done it otherwise was expand on Qui-Gon's sensing there was something special about the kid. Just have the Jedi Counsel do the same and declare his salvific or damning potential. Interestingly enough, I think it would have worked better.

Mustafar was pretty wild. The newly-christened Vader's "cleanup detail" was a pretty heartless deal - I'm glad it was in there. Qui-Gon's shortcomings were mostly the fault of the Thea Bearded One. They must have moved all of their clone manufacturing to China by the time the original sequels came around. All that lead and melamine combined with not-even-better-than-slave labor quality…you get what you pay for.

hmm that vid is not available in my country....damn this unheard of backwater they call Great Britain :banghead:

I can see the transition to storm troopers - the idea much documented(in extended universe books and such) seems to be that the efficient clones were basically doomed to die young having accelerated growth and replaced by ordinary human beings, who were more independent but also more prone to mistakes despite their training, this means the clones had to be able to shoot a flea off a dogs back at 500 paces or there wouldnt be much point in storm troopers later on.

as for the battle of naboo dogfight with young anikin, can you imagine the looks on the faces of the pilots when they all land and get out to find some 10 year old slave boy come pod racer did what none of the career pilots could do?

better run for cover, a big rock is coming this way

http://uk.news.yahoo.com/giant-asteroid-set-to-narrowly-miss-earth.html


A giant asteroid will only just miss earth later this year, according to NASA.

The huge rock, dubbed YU55, will pass within 201,700 miles of our planet in November.

If it crashes into earth the impact would be equivalent to 65,000 atomic bombs, while the crater would be six miles wide and 2,000 ft deep.

The asteroid, which weighs 55 million tons and is 1,300ft wide, will be the largest ever object to get so close to our planet. It orbits the sun every 14 months.


It will be closer to us than the moon, which is on average 238,855 miles away and will be visible through a small telescope.

The best times to view it will be between 23:28 on 8 November and 07:13 on 9 November (UK time).

According to NASA spokesman Dave Yeomans, there is no chance YU55 will crash into earth… for the time being. He said in statement: “YU55 poses no threat of an Earth collision over, at the very least, the next 100 years.”

He added: “During its closest approach, its gravitational effect on the Earth will be so minuscule as to be immeasurable. It will not affect the tides or anything else.”

Nonetheless, it has been officially labeled a ‘potentially hazardous object’ by the space agency.

YU55 was discovered by Robert McMillan, head of the NASA-funded Spacewatch Program at the University of Arizona in 2005, but it’s not the only ‘near-earth object’ they are monitoring.

NASA are also keeping tabs on WN5, an asteroid that will pass the planet in 2028, and ‘99942 Apophis’, a celestial body measuring 1,200 ft which could zoom past us on April 13 2036.

They also believe an even bigger asteroid has a one-in-a-thousand chance of colliding with earth in 2182.

My little bro got me a copy of Slash's solo album. It's an interesting body of work. He was raving about one titled "Nothing to Say" featuring the singer from Avenged Sevenfold. I know I'm going to rankle a lot of feathers, but I hate that guy's voice - the rest of the song is really cool in spite of M. Shadows' scratchy whine. ("M. Shadows?" Really? OOOOH, HE'THS A THPOOKY MANTHS!) He "rests" too much on his adenoids when he sings, something similar to what white chocolate rapper Eminem does. Makes me want to club them both with a spiked baseball bat and then fertilize my lawn with what's left.

Other tracks on the CD are pretty cool, though. The ones with Kid Rock, Fergie (LOLWUT?!? - she needs to do more real rock singing instead of…everything else she's ever done) and Lemmy Killmeister were pretty good. The three with Duff McKagan & Dave Grohl, the only instrumental on the CD, Chris Cornell, and Ozzy were easily the best tracks on it, though. The final track which features Iggy Pop was an utter abomination.

He also got me Gn'R's Chinese Democracy, and I'm having a really hard time wading through it. I'm not particularly a Gn'R fan, but I do have a couple favorites from the "old days." This CD so far…I guess I just don't get it or something.

He was the only thing worth watching in Legend. The makeup for "Darkness" is still one of the most amazing things in cinema I've ever seen. Even his brief work in The Hunt for Red October was really cool. He was Tim Burton's second choice for The Joker in Burton's Batman. I think that would have made the movie actually watchable. :blink: I'm glad he didn't though - that way I don't have to feel bad about hating the movie. :lol:

However, I would argue that nothing could save The Rocky Horror Picture Show. There was nothing redeemable about that movie.

Speaking of things irredeemable, I saw the latest Conan trailer. I'm still not liking "the new guy." I think people familiar with the artwork for the comics (which I saw as a kid - in fact, put a shirt on Conan from the comics and you get Nathan Explosion from Metalocalypse) might find him acceptable, but based on the "history" of the actual novels that I've studied (very little, admittedly) he still doesn't fit.

I am not so sure about this new Conan flick, the actor looks to Persian to me and not quite beefy enough. He does resemble some of the different comic book story arc from old but Conan is suppose to be a big dude!

Ragnarok
05-06-2011, 08:35 AM
The actor is Hawaiian, but yeah, he would be fine if the Cimmerians were analogous to Central Asian/Nothern Asian peoples…which they're not. :blink: This guy is big. He's 2 inches taller than Arnold was in his prime, but like I said a few weeks ago, Arnold WAS Conan. It'd be like anyone other than Lou Ferrigno playing the Hulk, or anyone other than John Wayne playing Rooster Cogburn. It can be done, but, man, they're going to have to do better than that. Physique-wise, this guy's very impressive, but again we're comparing him to Arnold, who had that "mythical musculature" that few actors ever had (I'll include Ferrigno in this group, too).

If Conan had never been made into a film (or TV show, for that matter - which had a good replacement for Arnold with Rolf Moller, but not a worthy story) this might be easier to swallow. To be honest, I don't know that I could come up with a "new guy" that would have been an appropriate alternative. What I'm about to say is going to sound bigoted no matter how I attempt to phrase it, and that is DEFINITELY not what I want, but…my biggest issue here is the guy's the wrong ethnicity. They need a fair-skinned Teutonic or Nordic actor for this part, or at least someone that looks like they could be some persuasion of Germanic, to stay true to the original literary character. An example of that was that they had a Czech actor play Buliwyf in The 13th Warrior (still the best Beowulf adaptation ever made) and he was perfect for that part. Too bad he's not 15 years younger. :blink: He'd make the perfect Viking Thor if they were to make a proper, LotR-style, non-Marvel/sci-fi Thor movie. Hell, even at his current age, he'd still make an awesome Thor.

I agree 100% he just doesn't have the right ethinicity for the part. Even if he is tall he just doesn't have the girth.

Have you watched Game of Thrones on HBO? He is in that and plays a Persian style Leader of a barbaric nomadic clan. He fits the part great. Its actually a really good show. You wouldn't appreciate the nudity in it, but the actual story line of the show is captivating, Sean Bean (Boromir) is also in it, along with LEna Heady ( 300).

I agree 100% he just doesn't have the right ethinicity for the part. Even if he is tall he just doesn't have the girth. That would fit with that musculature comment I made.

Have you watched Game of Thrones on HBO? He is in that and plays a Persian style Leader of a barbaric nomadic clan. He fits the part great. Its actually a really good show. You wouldn't appreciate the nudity in it, but the actual story line of the show is captivating, Sean Bean (Boromir) is also in it, along with LEna Heady ( 300).
Naw, I don't have cable, so I don't have to worry about it. I've seen articles on the show before it started airing and, yeah, the "nuderty" would keep me from watching it. Sean Bean is an awesome actor. I wish he'd get more parts as good guys. I understand he's not-a-bad-guy in this new series.

In other news i watched 'Little Fockers' < quickly checking i spelt that right lol

Well, since my respect level of the first was already zero, I don't think I have a reason to see the new one. http://hvx-rc.com/forumstuff/emo/emo-raspberry2.gif

If "like" is analogous to "pure, raw, unadulterated hatred," then, yes, I flipping loved it! :lol:

Rag, as far as Game of Thrones is concerned the nudity is on the line of Conan the Barbarian. Now of course its a 1 hour show and not every one has nudity in it. There is some swearing but not bad either. Bean actually is awesome in this, he is like the Kings Main body guard.

I have never been 100% sure if I liked or disliked the Focker's series.

well i had a genius moment today.

decided to take my wheelchair apart to clean and inspect it. got the seat back, bottom cusion, and rear wheels off it. wiped down everything and tightened loose bolts and fixed a loose seat back mount. went to put it all back together, and i got everything put back on except for one wheel. the damned thing would just not go on. i spent 30 minutes trying to put it back on. busted 3 knuckles, cursed many many times:firedevil:, only to find out the brake was on pushing the lever that hits the tire backwards causing the wheel to not go in the hole to lock:banghead::banghead::banghead:. unlocked the brake then the axle slid in the hole and locked:blink:. i felt so stupid. all i did was just laugh at my retardedness. remind me next time i do tis to unlock the brakes.:crazy:

also went to the doc today. he told me i have a severe urinary tract infection. almost to the point of hospitalization. the doc then gave me an antibiotic shot from hell. even when injected into the numbest spot on my thigh it burnt. it should be renamed satan's shot.
