Re: A thread for Science

Amidst the media storm about Tesla being on the verge of kicking the bucket, it's interesting to read articles from a year ago that show that non-automobile related markets are seriously preparing for self driving cars to become a real, widespread thing, if not the norm in personal transportation. A...

Re: Why is Heath Ledger's Joker considered to be so good?

I think that the appeal behind Ledger's Joker, apart from the talent of the actor himself of course, would be based on the character's sick humor, definitely a notch higher in quality when compared to the other Jokers, and the fact that he's supported by a solid movie with scenes directed with talen...

Re: What are you working on?

My friends and I have been working for what must be 6 years now on a short to mid-length movie centered around the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. PC game series, but by now we're mostly referring to it as a joke since we never got around to do anything serious about it... The fact that some of us moved thousands of...

Re: Christopher Nolan For Making A Bond Movie?

It's true that a Bond movie set in the decade between the independence of India and the Suez crisis, when the UK still could think of staying a world class superpower and an empire, would be fascinating ; plus there would be LOTS of antagonists to choose from, the good old Soviets (a plot around Sta...

Re: Dunkirk General Information/Discussion

I'd be actually quite surprised if the CoD WW2 map did NOT take inspiration from the Dunkirk movie ; the first game was pretty much a game adaptation of the main WW2 movies of its era (mostly Saving Private Ryan and Stalingrad), and cinematographic influences remained very present through the series...

Re: Am I the only one who thought Ra's was the best villain?

And that's exactly why I prefer Ra's to the Joker.

A villain that acts out his plans based on his beliefs and logic, in order to make the world a better place, will always "beat" a villain that does what he does because "its for the lulz xD". Feels way too teenage for me.
