So more money is about to get thrown in a pile to be burnt:
'Terra Nova' co-creator to write "50 Shades of Grey" script
A new short film that I made with my brother and our friend Merne.
Now, I specifically waited until after my birthday to post it here because I don't want any gift reviews. We sort of made this movie up as we shot and cut it, and while I think there are some really interesting/cool ideas beneath it, I don't think they really came through. I think most people will see this as little more than a camera test, but I want to know what (if anything) you get out of it. You know, if you care enough to spend nine and a half minutes watching it in the first place.
I felt this was a look at the daily life of SoulDischarge.
What were your tools for the job? During production and post (FCP/AVID/Premiere). I take it a friend scored it?
Your friend has a great name by the way, he's taken the III to a new level.

Shot on a 5D Mark II, edited (including what little sound editing took place) in FCP 5. I'm pretty satisfied with how the image quality came out considering how little planning/resources went into it, so I would imagine I'll be using them again on my next, hopefully better-conceived project.
Default lens for the 5D? or do you have a tasty selection? I ask as some shots seemed a bit richer in color than others, or did you color correct a little?
Cocteau's The Blood of a Poet is maybe the most befuddling film I've ever watch for school. No idea.
just watched the Alex Cross trailer/commercial for the first time...
I actually like a lot of the Besson written/produced movies, even if they are dumb/trashy. The Transporter series, Crimson Rivers, Wasabi, and District B13 are all a blast.
PTA is on the Daily Show tonight to discuss The Master !

I watched Basic Instinct for the first time tonight. i had never imagined that it was such a paul verhoeven film, in every sense. I guess i didn't know what it was beyond the infamous moment. This is such a trashy, schlocky, sleazy, ridiculous bit of fun nonsense. i laughed out loud several times and loved every single fucking bit of it. I was kind of flabbergasted at the absolutely outrageous amount of extremely graphic, gratuitous sex and nudity in it (and both Tripplehorn and Stone look AMAZING in this), but the dialogue is insanely stupid and funny, the car chases come out of nowhere, the murders are as violent and bloody as possible, Jerry Goldsmith's score is so out of place...just so much good stuff. it's kind of like a film noir movie, and kind of a movie about '80s excess (even though it came out in 1993), but the plot gets so unnecessarily convoluted and full of dumb tangents and revelations, that ultimately it's about Michael Douglas grimacing and acting like a psychopath and Sharon Stone being naked and/or extremely clever and/or bitchy. And I'm okay with that. Somehow Verhoeven is able to make terrible movie that completely transcend what a bad movie is and end up being immensely enjoyable, because I honestly can't wait to watch this again. The ending is especially incredible.
Saw the two Hostel movies again last night for the first time since Hostel II came out in theater. I still prefer the first one, lol.
I really fucking hate it that you decided to join this thread.
I just watched Prometheus last night, funny enough. Was alright. Flawed and the characters are pretty impossible to care about - what a massive fucking waste of Charlize Theron and Idris Elba - but still, I enjoyed it. Didn't hold up to much thought, but it tipped along at a decent pace and had a strong look. I think mebbe I've gotten less demanding in my old age.
The look of Prometheus, the story behind it, and Michael Fassbender's performance make that movie for me. I love it.

It seems that anyone who actually likes Prometheus should probably avoid every piece of writing on it and every single part of the DVD/BD release except for the movie itself. Ridley appears hell-bent on destroying anything interesting about it via the press.
That is discouraging.
