Movies

I looked through the FAQs and Help, and did a search and I am still lost. I can not view any movies. Do I need to download a viewer of some sort? Be gentle, I'm new to most of this computer stuff. Thanx, S.

Movie Recommendations?

My friends and I all realized that there are a lot of relatively recent movies that none of us had seen. We're now trying to watch as many of them as we can. For example, last night we watched Fight Club. We were wondering if anyone on Instructables has any good recommendations, or anything similar to discuss.

Movie Error

I was watching the first part of Generation Kill, its about a group of marines during OIF 1, and I was getting all into it and I noticed an error, a Major error. Well just look at the picture. Normally for a vehicle to go, the engine has to be RUNNING. Tactical vehicles have switches to start them. You have off, run, and start. He has the engine off, but yet the vehicle is making noise and its going down the road. Now i know the vehicle is being pulled by a trailer, and the engine is "off" because if it was "on" it would be a crap load louder and everyone would have to scream at each other just to talk, but come on guys at least rig the knob so that it points up right when driving. What movie errors have you noticed that made you upset?

Instructables the movie

I'm calling the attention of all the Instructables Team and Community, together with your suggestions and comments, we can make a very beautiful, suspense, breath-taking movie. I know that Macgyver blockbuster film is coming and it has a very big budget. I'm hoping that Steven Spielberg will help us in this regard. Let's make an exciting story. This movie is about invention, innovation, recycle, gadgets, espionage, robots, gizmos, diy, computer whiz, Macgyverism, hacking, satellite, homebrew, offbeat/sneaky/wacky uses of everyday things, problem-solving, strategies, smartness, creativity, etc. Let's start for example with a fourteen-year old boy who is an instructable freak. He unexpectedly witness a crime scene where the "big brothers" (mafia, yakuza, terrorists, NSA, CIA, etc.) are involved. A conspiracy came out to eliminate him. He is now running for his life. His only tools are his "mossad" skills/talents and the "smartest instructables." We can develop further this story by the following steps: 1 - Identify the problems which he will encounter to survive 2 - Select smart solutions from instructables 3 - Integrate and converge those situations in each scene 4 - Choose characters for the movie 5 - Let's make a script 6 - Finalization 7 -Dr. Eric Wilhelm, please contact the Hollywood... Are you with me? List now the links of your favorite instructables that can be used in this movie! And join the forum... http://www.perixgenius.co.cc

Older Movies

I've started watching some older movies that I sorta missed because I was the wrong age when they came out. Right now I'm watching Good Will Hunting again. It's one of my favorite movies. Elliott Smith owned on the soundtrack. Does anyone else have older movies that they liked a lot?

Sneaking into movies?

Well today i went to the movies with my friends and we saw "get smart" and it was good but then my friends said lets go see another movie and sneak in. They say it is not illegal but i think it is. Also it goes completely against my moral values. Is just getting one ticket and sneaking in illegal? What do you guys think about it?

Trash movies

Did anyone else notice the flood of extremely bad movies this year? Zombies, Nazi-Zombies, deadly virus that turns people into zombies... And then there are these "creature films".... Sharknado (1 to3 !!!), Three headed shark attack, Sharktopus VS Whalewolf, Lavalantula, Megashark VS Kolossus .... Of course we also have a lot of adventure films in the lord of the ring style... What is it that all these movies have in common? They all take at least 90 minutes from your life LOL Not sure where to start, the bad acting, the boring dialogs, the special effects - some are below high school level. So what is it that makes companies produce such crap? I admit I can quite enjoy a trash movie every now and then, but the level of trash is now higher than anything. Do you think it is the fun of making it that drives the people, desperation to at least make a movie once or what it is? Can't be to satisfiy the people buying those movies ROFL

Halo Movie

While i was looking around the internet, i found out that there was a movie called halo, and then i looked at the news, the movie was based on halo. its production has been halted, due to the fact that the two studios backed out before the production could be finish, because like the Tome Raider, they think that i will not be as good as the games. if you have any opinion about this, post away, and ect.

Movie Glasses

I had an idea the other night, but no idea of how to go about it. I Want to take two small screens probably about one to two inches big, then mount them on sunglasses and somehow input movie from an HDMI or an HDMI micro. like This: http://www.chinavasion.com/cool-gadgets/60-inch-virtual-video-screen-glasses-for-iphone-ipad-ipod/ but for anything that can output HDMI. i thought about this when i was on the plane and was tired of the people behind me asking to tilt the monitor -.- i have a Thrill 4G that uses a Micro HDMI to HDMI so im sure it would work with my phone and many others if we did it(although users without that HDMI port would need the adapter that makes Mirco USB to HDMI aswell) so basicly..

The Inkheart movie!

So, lots of people read inkheart, right? Well the movie is coming out in about three weeks, January 23. I was thrilled. However, I don't like the character choices. The main problem is they have this girl, Eliza Bennet playing Meggie who is 16, probably 15 at the time of filming. However, in the book, Meggie, is only 12. The 2nd problem, which isn't really a big one, is that I did not see Paul Bettany playing Dustfinger. To me, dustfinger was older, and in the promo pictures he doesn't have scars all over his face. That's all I have to say, but I digress. What do you guys think, I also think we need inkheart instructables. I'll think of one!Edit: Noone is an inkheart fan?

Interstellar (movie) ScienceFiction

Spoiler alert. The butler did it!!  Just kidding.                 Category: Weird Planets! Water Planet-  How'd they know that the sea was shallow enough to land in? The ship's engines apparently can't run if wet. So landing here was pretty risky. Would you land a plane in a foot of water not knowing if it was 1000' of water? You can't take off if the engines are wet!                         When a big wave hits, (on earth) one of the signs is that the water in a bay will recede. Why didnt this happen when the big waves hit in the film?   Ice Planet-  80% of earth's gravity (IIRC)  Yet a "frozen cloud" can hold up it's own weight. Fun world, very sculptural. Is there any way these shapes can hold themselves up?  Might be more believable if planet had 10% of earth gravity.  Those jump jets also more plausible in low G.                 Category: Black Hole Appearance-  At first, this seemed pretty artsy- bizzare. But i'd read that lots of research + computer modelling went into it. So here's my assumtion explaining the visual:  The black hole has a simple ring of hot debris orbiting it like the rings of saturn. This stuff isn't close enough to have it's light sucked in. Looking above, or below the "hole", Light from the backside of the ring is bent around to our "eyes" by gravity. This causes the illusion of a second ring perpendicular to the first one. If we coud "look"  with some means unaffected by gravity, we would "see" a single ring.                 Category: Demise of Earth IIRC, the crop  blight is "using up" the N2 in the atmosphere??  um...  Overall, a really good flick, addressing big human questions. Of course the human story is the most important, tough decisions face these characters....  but chat on sci should be fun, too.

A sweet Idea for a movie!

Ok, This Idea is either really cool or the dumbest one Ive had yet! What if They made a movie about aliens coming to destroy earth by infecting us with an alien virus that makes us turn into zombies, so the Worlds military makes Super advanced robots to fight them! and because all of the military personnel are fighting aliens The world erupts in mass anarchy and pirates start to sail the sea and attack coastal cities! So chivalrous ninja protect the people from the prates and aliens. But then the Anti-virus the Drug companies makes to stop the virus in the infected mutates and causes certain people to turn into vampires! I think it would be cool but it might also be a bit much! :)

The new iPhone has just been out for a few days and someone's already made a short film with it.
