@OogieBoogie: "bah humbug" -- Wikipedia :: "A humbug is a person or object that behaves in a deceptive or dishonest way, often as a hoax or in jest." .. The Catholic Encyclopedia: "Christmas was not among the earliest festivals of the Church." .. "Constantine the Great… Constantine can rightfully claim the title of Great, for he turned the history of the world into a new course and made Christianity…the religion of the State." .. "Mithraism A pagan religion consisting mainly of the cult of the ancient Indo-Iranian Sun-god Mithra. ... The 25 December was observed as his birthday, the natalis invicti, the rebirth of the winter-sun, unconquered by the rigours of the season." .. "Cards and presents. Pagan customs centering round the January calends gravitated to Christmas.." Alas poor Scrooge. He was right! ... right up until he had his wits scared out of him by spectres of the night. Eek

It was really just more of the same old people with some newer players added in. It did look entertaining though.

@SilverWook: "Passions are running thermonuclear right now over TLJ." -- Ooo-oo-oo! Entertainment! Smile You should suggest an OT unmoderated area for unfettered entertainment. I would do it myself, but I'm "FanRes - Do Or Die!" Wink
avatar
i think i have to regrab all the star wars fanres I used to have anyway, not sure if I still have them
avatar
lmao, this sounds funny, sorry, I've never spent any time over there but from reading this it sounds like you have the whole disney hating thing going on over there
avatar
And that's all I have to say about that.
avatar
Passions are running thermonuclear right now over TLJ. I imagine other SW forums are having the same issues. Our unique roster of recently banned repeat offenders have gotten very savvy at using VPN to sockpuppet recently, which isnt making my job any easier. Things will eventually calm down in a few weeks, at least until the Han Solo trailer drops.
avatar
bah humbug to all and to all bah humbug =p
avatar
Merry Xmas to everyone! Ok
avatar
They never needed me to survive anyways. I'm sure SW would heartily agree with that, lol. It's all good. I wish them all a Happy Holidays regardless. Life is too short to let such foolishness get in the way of happier times.
avatar
That was my problem really. I wasn't missing much long before I was banned. I just didn't know it until after the fact.
avatar
Yeah right. I forgot you've been banned. Well, as you basically said. You're not missing much.
avatar
Out of childish curiosity I went to look. What a mess. It makes me even more thankful I was banned for dubious reasons.
avatar
Can't blame you for that Smile
avatar
I don't go to OT for anything anymore so I guess I'm behind the 8 ball on this one.
avatar
So we can't say "The Last Jedi" anymore?
avatar
When I see people on OT with usernames like "Disney Ruined Star Wars" I know I don't have anything to do with this place anymore. It's just fans fighting over for stupid arguments... Sad.
avatar
@FrankT I was responding to Valeyard and Roobee in regards to Frink getting banned on OT.
avatar
???
avatar
I don't know all the details, as it's all in a spoiler thread (and I haven't seen TLJ yet), but I'd argue that usage of that particular word is best avoided.
avatar
I'm glad it's not me .... LOL

^ ^ We titans live by The Code Of Bronze (the metal, not that other guy) :: An eye for an eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, burn for burn, wound for wound, stripe for stripe, life for life ... (I don't think it stops just there but all this typing is wearing me out). Now, where did I put my sword?
avatar
"He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named" is a member here, too... so, if he wants to tell something meanwhile, he's welcome - even if I'm pretty sure he will not, as his last visit was more than four months ago...
avatar
He lives in my city, so that's about all I can share about that incident. Needless to say that's one person I don't drink with. Smile
avatar
The worst example I know of someone overreacting to being offended was an American I know personally who got offended at something another guy said at a pub so he: 1. started a fight, 2. won the fight, 3. continued beating the guy senseless breaking his jaw fracturing his skull and other really nasty injuries, 4. the other guy was put in a medically induced coma, and his physical rehabilitation took over a year. And all because he "offended" him!

Wait, wait. What? Someone at OriginalTrilogy ... was ... BANNED?!? Shocked No-o-o-o! How can such things happen in this day & age? It's a sign ... of the jAyPOCALYPSE!!
avatar
@zoidberg - lol! Tongue
avatar
And I'm too cheap to buy another one.
avatar
Nothing, it's just such a clunker!
avatar
The hell happened to your computer, that it would do such a thing?
avatar
Well this marks the end of my fan restoration adventures. My computer overloads when I try to build an HD remix.
avatar
Sorry Silverwook, I had to express my inner feelings somewhere Undecided ...
avatar
It's a Festivus miracle!
avatar
@SilverWook: It is like Jaws .. in the Sequel it will follow you even to places normally won't be associated with it... Smile
avatar
I just love it when my job follows me over here. Undecided
avatar
^ ^ I know exactly how that feels...
avatar
lmao, sounds like someone i know
avatar
Only because he claimed he was "offended". I had an admin on another forum tell me in private that Americans are the worst when it comes to complaining about being offended at things other people post.
avatar
Seems funny, seeing as he was the one who could always provoke other users without getting the mods interfered.
avatar
It's a temp ban, appearenly the guy flies off the handles anytime someone uses the word "retard". Sad.
avatar
So after all those years a certain member at OT got finally banned. But I do not know what is more worse: that it took so long, or that people go mad about the decision and defend him...
avatar
Happy Festivus to all
avatar
HAPPY FESTIVUS!!

Happy solstice... Winter or Summer... Just depending,but doesn't matter...

"Merry Christmas from the American Bar Association (restrictions apply)" @16m53s https://omnystudio.com/d/clips/dae91041-.../audio.mp3
avatar
Both Guardians, Fantastic Beasts also did Frame Breaks
avatar
Guardians of the Galaxy 3D occasionally made the black bars thicker so things could appear to leave the frame. So did Life of Pi, I think
avatar
That's right! Did any other film do that?
avatar
sent
avatar
@OogieBoogie: send me a PM
avatar
spoRV, on the off chance you know, back in the days of blurg there was a fanres dude, cant remember which, that had a thread trying to fund raise for a 35mm print of Disney's Beauty and the Beast, do you know if anything ever happened with that?
avatar
avatar
I know the 3D BD should.
avatar
@FrankT the remake?
avatar
Does the Ghostbusters BD really have the SFX flying out of the frame?

(cue Darth Vader theme https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xRRtOJqB8PU) "Search your feelings. You know it to be true." -- Mark Hamill (AKA Luke Skywalker) crosses light-sabres (AKA Twitter) with Ted Cruz (AKA U.S. senator), loses his (typing) hand, and discovers he IS his father's son -- @ 35m52s of https://omnystudio.com/d/clips/dae91041-.../audio.mp3
avatar
You remember/saw the movie "Kentucky Fried Movie"?
avatar
Is 4DX like smell-o-vision?
avatar
I'm going to see The Last Jedi tonight in 4DX, decided to go with it over IMAX.
avatar
Jedi is locked AR
avatar
Question is, where can I find a 7276 grainplate?
avatar
I'm presently working on preparing materials for my 16mm black-and-white restoration of Reservoir Dogs. Obviously, a 16mm grainplate will be used this time around.
avatar
It's probably VAR on IMAX showings, like TFA, but the BD wasn't.
avatar
Maybe in 3D. In 2D it was regular 2.39:1 all along.
avatar
Star Wars: The Last Jedi = VAR! Hope to see it on BD...
avatar
^ ^ True ... true ... Smile
avatar
Actually I think I'll need to sync this video to the audio first.
avatar
I was actually mocking Bronzie's question about what a "movie theater" was. Tongue
avatar
avatar
What are records?
avatar
What's a "movie theater"? Undecided
avatar
avatar
Thanks poita ... that was a cool watch.
avatar
^ ^ Awesome find! Loved the scene creations. So why didn't they match the look (balanced the lighting) more exact?
avatar
@ FrankT - DrDre was working on an super-resolution-algorithm upscaler & tested it on Star Wars (laserdisc).
avatar
avatar
^ ^ ... better than a Utopian dictator hellscape (communist China was the last attempt -- they executed 80,000,000 of their own in peace time) ... just sayin'
avatar
avatar
The FCC just voted to repeal Net Neutrality on the same day Disney announced they're aquiring Fox. Dystopian capitalist hellscape, anyone?
avatar
Regarding movie critics: https://www.thoughtco.com/sony-fake-film...ry-4062655 - it's not the article I remember reading a while back but still quite telling
avatar
@FrankT Have you tried SuperRes in AviSynthShader? https://github.com/mysteryx93/AviSynthShader
avatar
I need to upscale the video and sync it to a DTS track I have.
