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...

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?

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.

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?

Torrenting a movie you own (Legality)? Answered

So, i have been wondering this for a while now, and thought to ask here before I did something stupid and got the feds at my door :) Is it legal to torrent a movie I own? For example, I have an old copy of the Incredibles, but since it was released in 2004, the movie has seen its fair share of use, and at the moment is too scratched to be played (Unfortunately I did not rip a backup...).  So under these circumstances, would it be legal to torrent the movie file, as I have the actual, physical disk of the movie? What about VHS tapes (got my fair share of those). Getting these on my computer would just be some $70 software/recording equipment... it would be faster and cheaper to download them instead of getting shoddy quality off of a 15 year old VHS.  What about for a disc that has been solen? We had our car broken into at one point, and got some 10 DVDs stolen out of it (around 8 of which didnt have a backup)... I would like to be able to get those back, legally, without having to spend $150 re-buying movies already purchased...

ADAM: 2009 movie about the realionship between a boy with Asperger's and the girl that moves in next door (upstairs) UPDATED....

Adam chronicles the relationship between a normal woman and a man with Asperger's Syndrome...Those with Asperger's, ...look at the world in ways that are fundamentally different...The easiest way to tell this story would be to resort to stereotypes and short-cuts and, to his credit, Mayer largely avoids these. A review Another review Update: The way I learned about this was through an interview on PBS radio in my area. UPDATE #2:  I have seen the movie, and I find a lot of it very accurate....but if you are looking for a nice neat "happily ever after" ending, it might not be for is realistic, and life doesn't always deal us "happily ever after". Just saying....

My friend Josh and I considered making an action movie, mostly just for kicks and giggles. however, I need a good, solid Idea in order to write the script. I already tried facebook, but got nowhere. anyway, I was thinking something along either a James Bond style or a Matrix style.  in the paraphrased words of Neo, "it's going to need guns. lots of guns." also any tips on cheap (safe?) stunts, camera tips, and other helpful hints are welcome and appreciated. I have access to some high-adventure equipment , so heights aren't much of an issue on the stunts point. Thanks in advance! Ciao!
