What happened to getting off? Is “getting on” the post-millenial term, or are we not talking about the same thing?

They’re little red kiosks at supermarkets or drugstores where you can rent a movie or game for a couple bucks a day (it charges your card every day until you return it). They’re usually pretty convenient and carry Blu-Rays, too.

I hate when people expect everyone to automatically like their stupid and unlikable girl- or boyfriends.

Holy shit this.

Or when they split up finally and you have that cathartic talk with your friend about how much of a piece of shit the gf/bf was and you’re happy they finally saw through the bullshit and dumped them…

…and then two weeks later they’re back together and expect you to act like you were rooting for them all along when you two just had a whole conversation about what a piece of shit that person was.

…What? I’m not bitter at all.

Ranking the Star Wars films
Time

I will never understand not ranking AOTC as the worst Star Wars film.

Unless you’re including the Holiday Special. Or maybe the 2008 TCW movie, but even that is better than AOTC for me.

No, I tried to rent a PS4 copy from a Redbox kiosk and got a piece of paper in the case with a scan of the disc printed onto it.

I will never purchase this game, unless I get it used for like $10. EA is getting no money from me for it - I justified Redbox since a $3 rental can’t get them more than a buck or two and I wouldn’t be spending any money on microtransactions.

I tried to Redbox it for the campaign after hearing how short it was. I got a piece of paper with a Xerox of the disc printed on it. Couldn’t find a way to report it stolen, so I reported it as an unplayable disc, put the piece of paper back in the sleeve and returned it to the kiosk, and…got a credit for a free rental rather than a refund.

If they try to blame and charge me for the stolen disc I’m gonna be fucking pissed.

So what is the best way to capture Hulu video? Do you have to do a capture over HDMI or is there software to rip the stream itself? If it’s the latter and someone can point me in the right direction as far as capturing/ripping/downloading software goes, I’ll get myself a Hulu subscription and get these over Thanksgiving while I’m at my grandma’s with decent wifi.

Then I’ll probably rip my Blu-Rays of movies 3 and 4 and do a high-quality reconstruction of episodes 9-16 - too bad movies 1 and 2 are only out on DVD…

Eh, I guess I could’ve done that, but the mobile hotspot seemed like a better idea than getting a separate phone just to use as a hotspot.

Though the unlimited data (which you can’t get with the hotspot, 7GB is the max amount of data you can buy at a time) would’ve been a nice perk.

Related: I just spent $125 on a Straight Talk mobile hotspot and 7GB of data for it because I’m sick and fucking tired of my apartment complex not fixing our internet (which I mercifully haven’t been asked to pay for in months).

Can’t wait until my lease is up so I can move somewhere where I have the option of going with Comcast or AT&T or whoever else services my area instead of being stuck with the leasing company’s private ISP…

JEDIT: Oh, and in 2 days I’ve already used 3GB of the 7GB plan I paid for…ugh. Better than going over on mobile data on my family Verizon plan and having to explain to my mom why the bill jumped up $30 at the end of the month, I guess.

Oh, that’s good info! It’s not quite detailed enough to do a proper reconstruction using the DVDs/Blu-Rays, unfortunately, and there are quite a few TV-cut-only shots that would require a capture of the Hulu versions, but it might be a good reference to make sure the Hulu versions are the initial broadcast cuts and not, for instance, syndication cuts that are even shorter than the original broadcast cuts.

Having said all that, I think Whittaker’s costume is a little bland for me, but there’s a big difference between promo pictures and seeing it in action - just look at how Capaldi’s costume(s) turned out during his run compared to the reveal promos.

It looked the same as the promos(when he was actually wearing the costume seen in the promos).

That’s what I mean - he very rarely wore the “full” costume as seen in the promos. It’s entirely possible that Whittaker’s Doctor won’t wear the “full” costume all the time, either, and that her alternates might look better than her primary.

Eh, costumes for the Doctor generally trend toward “silly.” I mean, look at Tom Baker’s mile-long scarf, Peter Davison’s decorative celery and cricket outfit, Colin Baker’s…everything, Sylvester McCoy’s umbrella and question mark sweater-vest, et cetera.

Granted, new series Doctors have been a bit less “silly” (unless you consider Matt Smith’s tweed, suspenders, and bow tie silly) outside of Capaldi’s frequent hoodie and frock coat combination, and even that was a bit understated compared to, say, Jon Pertwee’s frills and velvet.

Terrible DVD/Blu-ray Cover Art
Time

Haha, I saw those “ugly sweater covers” myself today. Sometimes the holiday season brings some nifty “limited time” sets, sometimes it brings some hideous ones. These are kind of in the middle for me, in that the novelty is amusing, but they’ll look dumb a month or so after Christmas, with some exceptions (something like Christmas Vacation or Home Alone, for instance).

I saw this Godfather set today, too, which bugs me simply because the logo is wrong - the bar on top of the “G” doesn’t come as close to the “D” as it should. The art itself is alright, but the incorrect logo really grinds my gears. (The first DVD set that came out back in the day had the same problem for some reason.)

I think its your phone Ash, the ambient noise is there.

The first clip is great, really good editing and like the narrative based on your edit.

I will say I do agree with all what Chainsawash has said on his previous posts. I appreciate you want the air time for Saw, but it would be better to take out those scenes … especially the Gullett scene…

Lastly, having K2 silent with the bag is genius. I like it better this way!

Thanks for the input! And I’m glad you like the K2 change!

Yeah, and it seems there’s no redemption with the Bor Gullet scene. The next cut I’ll probably remove those scenes, and if people are willing to watch the first 20-30 minutes, see how it flows.

Count me in to check out the first act after cutting those scenes. If it works and you decide to go that route, this honestly might negate the need for me to do my own edit of RO when I get my new PC built around tax time! (More time for me to finally finish my Hobbit 3-in-1, I guess!)

I’d love that Dolby poster without the logo as well. Really hoping a giant official textless version of that is released like they did with the main poster…

True, but wouldn’t a Hulu capture be a better source if it is the TV edits of the movies than SyFy, which would have station logos and ads plastered all over the screen the whole time?

I watched Blade Runner again recently…and it’s still just meh. I don’t get why everyone loves it so much.

It’s a movie that grew on me with each viewing. I didn’t like it much the first couple times, but now it’s one of my all time favorites.

The DVD versions are four 90-minute long movies. The TV/Hulu versions are sixteen 22-minute long episodes, which are edited differently, with some jokes cut, some added, and new opening credits “tagline” jokes that aren’t in the DVD versions (since they have one opening credit sequence for each film, rather than four for each when they were edited into episodes for syndication).

I haven’t seen all of the episodic versions, so I don’t know what all is different in detail.
