I had problems with the crash. First of all, transitioning from inverted to upright would have to be done much higher than it was in the movie. That airplane would lose a tremendous amount of altitude in the transition. Second, it only slid about 2 or 3 plane lengths on the ground. Way too short.

Cheers,


That was pretty good.

I have a commercial pilot's license, fixed wing and rotorcraft, with an instrument rating. Those details are not due to overthinking, but are obvious and could just as easily have been done correctly.

ah lol. obvious to you maybe. im not a film-maker so i cant say one way or another if it would have been easier. i would assume they had a consultant for the scene and that it was done with some intention. either way, i have learned long ago to try and not to watch movies that are about my profession. there will always be something in there that irks me.

read bits of the chicago tribune review of the hobbit over someone's shoulder on the bus.

Sounded like it was not a stellar review (2.5stars out of 4 I think) but I did not see all of it. I did see him talking about 48fps and hating it...but I think he was hating it for the preconditioned reason that it looked "wrong" and not like a "movie". He suggested seeing it in 24fps (but there was no indication that he actually saw it a second time in 24p so that doesn't say anything about the fake motion blur they added to that version.


Reminded me of the alt text of this XKCD:

We're also stuck with blurry, juddery, slow-panning 24 fps movies forever because (thanks to 60fps home video) people associate high framerates with camcorders and cheap sitcoms, and thus think good framerates look "fake"
I had forgotten that 30fps (29.97) tv was actually 60fps interlaced content which is why it was so noticable and had that "soap opera" effect

This has gotten so much worse its incredible. Watch an old movie, difference is noticeable.

Watched The Dancer Upstairs, directed by John Malkovich and had a very good performance by Javier Bardem. I had no idea what the movie was about or even the name of it while watching it, which made it that much more enjoyable.

I recommend it.

I like the move it self...i went on like a 3 year quest to watch this movie...I saw a snippet of it when it came out forgot what it was a few years latter then made like it like a month long search to find it.


Saw the hobbit in 3d which im very against but it was the only way to see it in the 48fps. It looked fast forwarded at times and the voicing was out of sync...movie itself was good but 48fps was dumb...2d all day every day>3d crap
