If you had infinite resources to film it and an army of robot Joeys to splice it together, what video feature would you create for Screened? Go as outlandish as you'd like.
Here's to Screened becoming even more awesomer in 2012.
re asking this becasue of the Lost Podcast
Why hello there
With the recent release of Modern Warfare 3 and complaints about how its the same,why don't we hear the same complaint about movies like Mission Impossible,James Bond or something. Conversely what films have manged to make drastic changes over the franchises life span and stay popular.
So, I was watching Valkyrie the other day (the Tom Cruise Hitler-assassination flick by Bryan Singer), and quickly remembered that one of the things that really put me off in movies is when the actors don't speak the language of the country the movie is set in - when all the characters are natives, mind you. Instead we get characters who either speak perfect English, has half-assed accents, or actually are natives but trying to speak English. It really breaks the immersion for me, and I was wondering what your opinion is on this. Hate it? Don't mind it? Another great example would be Memoirs of a Geisha. Or even Takashi Miike's Sukiyaki Western Django, where we have Japanese actors trying to speak English. Yes, one would think it makes sense seeing as it's set in a western town, but the characters themselves in the movie are Japanese also, so it doesn't. Then again, it's Takashi Miike, so, yeah, 'sense' is perhaps not something one should look for there.
Thanks for the hard work on the site, and keep on making it awesome!
Did you get a chance to review the freelance articles users submitted a few months back? I believe at last count you stated many of them were bad, some were OK, and there were several you hadn't touched yet. I also wondered what your thoughts were on cut-scenes in video games? I enjoy them, as a game's story is just as important to me as the actual game's mechanics. For me, games like Uncharted and Alan Wake are some of the best examples of how cut-scenes enhanced the game experience. What are your thoughts on cut-scenes and do you find "story" in games important? Or at the end of the day, would you rather just watch a movie for a good story?
Keep up the great work and Merry Christmas!
Given your lukewarm opinions on biopics, especially this year's batch, is there anyones life and deeds you would want to be turned into a movie?
Personally I would't mind a movie adaptation of John Billington, Amerca's first murderer. I recently read about him on HowStuffWorks and, man, what a weird mess of a story.
Dark Knight Rises question:
There seems to be a lot of frustration/confusion over Bane's voice, and although I could definitely tell what he was saying, I can see where there's concern. What do you think is the reason for this issue not being addressed before the release of the highly anticipated trailer? Someone at some point had to have brought this issue to Nolan's attention. Would you say this is a case of Nolan and the producers/actors etc. being too close to the material? I don't know, maybe the consensus on their end is that being just shy of indecipherable is ok?
Thanks. Awesome job holding down the fort, Rorie.
