Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Superman - Man of Steel

Very mild spoilers:

The good

-To me, this movie was Superman, Superman II, Smallville, and Star Trek II The Wrath of Kahn all rolled into one.
-The actors are very good
-The story is fresh
-For the most part, the CG is very good. Almost makes you wish the prequels came a decade later

The bad

-Snyder uses digital stunt doubles - a lot. I hate that. It doesn't blend in particularly well.
-Not necessarily MOS' fault but we see yet another big city destroyed and a huge alien ship crash into skyscrapers. After Transformers 3 and The Avengers, among others, it's a bit tired.

For me, MOS was very good. Going in, because of the hype on twitter, I was expecting a masterpiece. Definitely worth seeing with an audience in a theater.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII

Just read this article that Latino Review is reporting that Harrison Ford is "in" for Episode 7:

Cool!  I don't see how they can avoid getting Luke/Han/Leia into E7 at least, so great to here progress on getting the original actors.  Of course, I'm not sure the "Latino Review" is where I'd expect to find breaking news on Harrison Ford or Star Wars...

El Mayimbe is pretty spot on in everything he posts. Latino Review is pretty good at confirming stories before posting. They are well respected.

Star Wars Universe / Re: Star Wars Movie Spin-Offs?
« on: February 5, 2013, 12:19 PM »
I am not against stand alone movies. I am quite for them actually. But if the recent arc on the CW showed us anything, there is a TON of excitement in SW where we don't know the endgame for the characters involved. Other than Palpatine, we didn't know what was to become of Maul, Savage, Vizla, etc. It was downright exciting. No matter how creative or well written the story is for a Yoda movie, we know he is going to live. I guess that is probably true in most movies though.

Any significance to the Mando soldier with the horns on his helmet?

Filoni has mentioned in different interviews that they have been producing season six for some time now. Whether it airs is another story but they are being made at the very least.

My only complaints are that the force powers slid into superhero territory. Elevating and choking seemed go be pushing it.

My only other complaint is that this storyline could have taken up well over six episodes. Great stuff but rushed.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Rumor: No more 3D Prequel Releases?
« on: January 28, 2013, 08:40 PM »
That is very interesting. I initially thought that maybe the profits from the 3D re-releases were supposed to fund the sequel trilogy. At one movie a year, that doesn't seem likely though. The Blu-Ray box sets were wildly successful though.

Quote
Variety is reporting that Star Wars has sold more than one million units in only a week on the markiet, shattering records for the high-definition format, and further cementing Blu-ray's dominance as the home video format of choice.

Despite an average list price of $79.99, the nine disc set generated more than $84 million in worldwide sales. U.S. sales accounted for $38 million of that total, with 515,000 units sold in North America.

That was September of 2011. Expecting families to shell out 3D ticket prices for TPM just four months later is a tough sell. Still, TPM3D opened to 22m and grossed 44m domestically. It earned 102m worldwide. I'm just not sure what a realistic number would have been to be deemed successful.

Interesting that SW.com said postponed instead of canceled.

I'm curious why many of the media outlets claim that TPM 3D underperformed. How much was it supposed to make? It was a 1999 film that was just released on Blu Ray a few months prior that many people already owned on DVD and VHS. Was it supposed it gross 100 million domestically?

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: The Apple iPhone Thread
« on: January 29, 2012, 01:47 PM »
Sorry to bump such an old thread. I figured it was better than creating a new one.

Anyone here have the iPhone 4s? This is only my second iPhone and I had a question.

I backed up my iPhone 4 to iTunes. I purchased the new iPhone 4S and synched it to my last backup. Did I just essentially just turn my 4S into a 4? I noticed the overall layout and look of the 4S was slightly different than my 4. It had more default apps and things of that nature. After I synched to my last back up, my 4S looks exactly like my 4 did.

Star Wars Universe / Re: 'Star Wars' in 3-D?

It appears The Lion King in 3D has raised the bar for re-releases in 3D. I am really curious to see what happens next February.

P90X can be very challenging if you are not used to that kind of training. There is another program from the same company that I highly recommend. It is called Power 90 and it was the predecessor to P90X. You can find it at a decent price on ebay and craigslist.

Great thread speedermike,

If you don't mind, I'd like to crash your thread and keep up with your progress and share my own progress. I think posting here would help motivate me to avoid skipping workouts or indulging too much on bad foods.
