His whole exchange with Luke literally brought me to tears (one of many times in the movie that did)
avatar
Yoda's quote about failure being the best teacher is really great.
avatar
The film isn't even saying that (as killing the past is reckless and prevents learning). It's saying have respect, but not be so slavish that you don't see the flaws and failures for what came before. Don't let it bind you to a destiny, and take what inspiration you can.
avatar
A lot of ppl are taking that Ren quote as being the thesis of the film.

Hmmmkay
avatar
I stopped counting when I stopped celebrating
avatar

avatar
Tom, are you in your 60s? The only Jethro I know is the one from NCIS! Tongue
avatar
Big Grin I know they sound similar to you, but I actually love this band. They'll be releasing a remaster of their Heavy Horses in February, that's why the memory is so fresh
avatar
Awesome choice Tom ....
avatar
I'm waiting for you... but only few hours, not more! Big Grin
avatar
Which reminds me of this great song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2YymGJKhGgY

To the ones who's living in the past: I live in the future, I live in the year 2018... hope to see you soon here Happy
avatar
Happy New Year!
avatar
Happy New Years to everybody ... be safe and have fun if you're celebrating.
avatar
I was perfectly okay talking in the thread but then nobody here would see how proud Oogie is about how he made me pay a price about blowing off steam. That is why he posted it in chat and not the thread. He's looking to be congratulated for striking down the evil me, lol.
avatar
Happy New Year to the fanres community!
avatar
It does indeed Synnove.
avatar
This whole exchange comes across as asinine to your average 3rd party observer
avatar
I hope your pleasure pie was worth it. Now maybe they'll see your worth and promote you to admin for such a wasted burn.
avatar
For the record, you cannot say something behind someone's back when your option to respond personally has been taken away, for no good reason. You actually could have posted in the thread you gleaned the info from instead of posting here.
avatar
Of course it is.
avatar
my pleasure
avatar
Well then, I guess I owe you a hearty thank you for adding your two cents, Thanks Oogie. So kind of you to help me out.
avatar
okay jetrell, i cant respond to your pm as you have me on an ignore list, so you basically only leave me here, yes I did tell Vinnie what you said here, you said it behind their back and openly doing what you do. you do have the right to say what you want to say, but understand that there is no such thing as free speech, everything has a cost, one i made sure you paid, I hope that was clear enough for you. Have a Happy New Year
avatar
So I've a rip of the Star Trek TMP SLV japanese laserdisc that includes the PCM audio track. Also have a rip of Koyaanisqatsi's LD track. Whats the preferred upload place?

Question for Aussies and Star Wars enthusiasts, I was reading this Wikipedia article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cinema_Int...orporation (partially taking it with a grain of salt) and saw that CIC had a joint venture with 20th Century Fox and Buena Vista/Disney back in the 70s. If this is true, I wonder if anyone saw Aussie prints of Star Wars having the CIC logo before the memorable Fox/Lucasfilm tag?
avatar
Fair enough. Smile
avatar
It's a collector's forum, their rules. I'm not sure how it would be bad for collectors. Anyway you don't have to post anything and then no one will ever know who you are haha. Tongue
avatar
If it wasn't for the random people you'd be talking to yourself lol
avatar
Well I did end up using my real name, but I think it's irresponsible towards the users. Why should some random people on the internet know my identity? I see why a seller needs to know who I am, to send the package, but there's no reasonable need to expose who I am in general. Even if they wanted to identify who I am, they could make a separate name field besides the display name
avatar
@TomArrow why does that seem wrong? If you use an alias and they find out (which will probably happen the first time you use PayPal to buy a print) you will get kicked off the forum. Ebay is different, you can have as many ebay accounts as you like one for each day of the week if you want.
avatar
OPEN registrations at Blutopia until new year. If you want an account sign up now!
avatar
They are not like eBay, lol.
avatar
Big Grin
avatar
How about something close but ironic, like ... Thomas Shaft ... (with your theme song --> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nFvRvSxsW-I )
avatar
Well, they're bound to figure out eventually. I'm just not gonna tell anyone who I am. Tongue
avatar
Just use an alias that sounds real?
avatar
That's kinda ridiculous. Even eBay allows you to use a nickname. Besides, I hate my real name.
avatar
They do actually. It is due to the fact that collector's offer trades and sales and keeping an eye on these is easier and safer if people know who you really are.
avatar
@ TomArrow "Do they really expect you to use your actual real name on that forum?" -- Even my actual name doesn't work for them. What, they're too good for BronzeTitan? (Hmmpf! Where's my sword?)
avatar
It's also where I got my Daredevil Theatrical print for $100.00+shipping.
avatar
It's a good forum with nice people. I've made some lasting contacts there.
avatar
Hey guys, Blutopia registration is open I think
avatar
Do they really expect you to use your actual real name on that forum? That seems kinda wrong
avatar
Thanks!
avatar
The forum is www.35mmforum.com
avatar
And does anyone have a link to that forum for print owners?
avatar
If anyone knows or hears of a Star Trek The Motion Picture print coming up for scale (or an owner who's willing to let it be scanned), let me know ASAP
avatar
Yeah, I'd like ST5 as well.
avatar
No jonno, you're not. I expressed the same excitement when I saw the listing. Smile
avatar
I can't be the only one who actually enjoys Trek V - a film scan would have been terrific. Here's hoping we have the whole set one day.
avatar
Another thing worth mentioning is that the process varied depending on the negative as well. Super35 was quite popular but that didn't allow for contact-printing in all generations through to release print, whereas filming at the native size of the eventual release print (with sountrack) did.
avatar
Looks like ST5 auction ended ... did anyone here get it?
avatar
Yeah IB prints are not made using photographic dyes, but regular "prints" are.
avatar
Thanks for the vid link! Tried the YT link for the website but it's gone (or rearranged). Fortunately, Internet Archive has it here: https://web.archive.org/web/201604211704...echnicolor (all the YT vids & lots of PDF docs)
avatar
Cool video, Valeyard. I wasn't aware prints were actally printed. I somehow had this idea in my head that they were exposing each print separately and then developing it.
avatar
But it's only part 5. I'd be more interested in part 2.
avatar
I would be willing to donate to such a project .... like it's any secret that I love Star Trek. LOL
avatar
Video on the IB printing process: https://youtu.be/g9S76vtk4Ro
avatar
^ Color looks great!
avatar
ST5 complete 35mm anamorphic print. About 500 USD shipped.
avatar
https://www.ebay.com/itm/STAR-TREK-V-198...2629619052 <- Am I the only one who's seen this?
avatar
I think things are all good PDB. Just a little venting convo.
avatar
Ok I think that's enough guys. Let's try to keep in the spirit of the season
avatar
Maybe I'm just too INFJ to be any good, I don't know really.
avatar
I very much want there to be balance but I cannot do it alone. Smile
avatar
Aw don't do that old friend. Yoda says ... "Balance in The Force, there must be!" Big Grin
avatar
I'll just ignore the shoutbox as much as possible from here on out. Better for everyone.
avatar
Do not try to psychoanalyze me. Wink
avatar
Well then how come you make a point to say to me you dislike coming here because of drama but you're okay with the drama as it happens there? People on all sorts of forums talk about stuff like this. I wasn't mean. I didn't say nasty things. I can't have an opinion on it because you're here? Or is it that you honestly feel bad about some decisions there and don't like being reminded of them once in a while here because underneath your moderator title you're actually a genuinely caring person stuck between a rock and a hard place?
avatar
I'm not asking anyone to walk on eggshells, or resign. I just don't see how dredging OT drama up here benefits this forum.
avatar
If it helps, I hope it's only temporary for DE, he is one of the better site members there even if he can be a handful sometimes.
avatar
That's just my opinion though.
