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.

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.

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..

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.

The new iPhone has just been out for a few days and someone's already made a short film with it. Shot and edited entirely on an iPhone 4 over 48 hours, "Apple of My Eye" is a gripping tale of ice cream and model train nostalgia.

Creative Movie Ideas: Youtube

I wanted to ask for some advice and feedback on my youtube channel as well as some new movie ideas. First off my Youtube Channel is very special to me and i think with the right work and attitude i cant get to to go farther: my youtube channel is http://www.youtube.com/user/Thelostrolo. Why the name Thelostrolo? well i created the channel when i was 11 (now nearly 15) and i thought i might as well keep the name! (I am working a big hunger games related project which will be uploaded to another channel) I am not sure if i should create a new channel. but that would mean starting from scratch and trying to get recognition again, but maybe you guys could help!? Anyway back to my idea: I had a phew ideas and of course ill need help as i cannot film on my own! The first idea is a simple idea called: 'The Confrontation" which is a simple action thriller type movie with gun movie effects and explosions! THe other on was: "Never look back"  a more serious film in which there is a kid who is bullied and one day is knocked out. He wakes up at home, but no-one was at home, so he decides to go out for a dog walk, he then comes across the bullies except they're afraid of him. etc etc and it ends with him finding out that he is not who he used to be! I could really do with some peoples feedback... not just because this took me a long time to type up! Also if you did check out my channel post your below and i might subscribe :D Thanks for the help Rowan Prosser- Rowans Movies - Thelostrolo RATE, COMMENT AND SUBCRIBE!

re-use of movie posters?

* hello, this is my first post on the forum, so i apologize if my comments are in the wrong place (just redirect me and i'll do what i can to fix it). however, if this is the right place... i snagged some movie posters when the apartment neighbors were moving because it seemed a shame to just trash them. originally, i thought it would be fun to turn them into envelopes of various sizes. when i tried it out however, they were not very durable. i tried using the search engine for the site, but only came up w/ ways to MAKE posters or put posters on furniture. i'm wondering if there is something small that i can make OUT OF these posters that is relatively simple. the posters themselves are probably of little value due to having tac holes or tape rips. any comments/suggestions would be appreciated. i'd like to make something i can send to others as i have no use for even more stuff in my life. thank you again! *
