With a healthy dose of "I’m way too sophisticated to enjoy something pumped out for the masses by the corporate machine. Most people like it, but I’m better than most people. "

Absolutely not saying everybody who dislikes it is that way , but anybody who gives it a 1/10 is.

And about Luke not actually being a great pilot because he gets helped a couple times, agree you forgetting he and wedge are the only ones who even survive?

Well since we seemed to be bound and determined to keep talking about it just thought of state the obvious.

A plan: Despecialization. We know it can be done. Now the question is... Can <em>Molly</em> do it?
Time

I wouldn’t say any one filter.

Ive only used it on anime that was already DVD quality but just wanted it to look better on a bigger screen. My general experience is that it will make it look as good as a DVD will on a crt except on a much larger hdtv screen. (Meaning no extra detail or anything magic like that but also no jaggies, no pixelation, little rainbow and no blocky lines or edges like you would get if you just played the DVD on a large hdtv screen)

Getting thrown into a bar table is being beaten up?

If you put someone on the floor, whether via a punch, push, or throw, and they show no indication of being willing or able to fight back, what do you call it? Legally it would be considered assault and/or battery. He was still on the floor until Obi-Wan helped him up after cutting the guy’s arm off, about 30 seconds later, more than long enough to have been “counted out” had it been a refereed fight, which is considered a “knockout”.

Either way, regardless of what you call it, it doesn’t change the point.

30 seconds? I’d be surprised if it was even 10, and he’s already up and okay.

Given that my laserdisc rip is made with poor quality equipment, I think I’d rather hold out for a better source than that before trying to despecialize Mewtwo Strikes Back… as big as the difference would be between a 1080p and 372i source, that would be exacerbated by a cheap laserdisc player and a bottom-of-the-line DVD recorder. 😦

Completely off topic for this thread as a whole but there are some really good avisynth scripts for upscaling specifically anime, which is a totally different beast from upscaling live action footage and can actually have worthwhile results.

Why are we bringing up the National Anthem protests again?

There’s no reason we should cower up about just because of one incident that happened. You should be able to have an appropriate discussion about it.

Given what has happened when we discussed it in the past, I don’t think I can. We have already made our opinions on the issue clear enough anyway. Also, I just understand why mfm decided to bring it up now, we hadn’t been talking about it at all.

I was telling a joke.

To be fair you seem to feel that way about all humor.

no, sometimes I just suck at a getting the joke.

Fair enough

This is a real statement by the President of the United States.

Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail!

I got one better for you:

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/932388590344196096

Sen. Jeff Flake(y), who is unelectable in the Great State of Arizona (quit race, anemic polls) was caught (purposely) on “mike” saying bad things about your favorite President. He’ll be a NO on tax cuts because his political career anyway is “toast.”

“Donald” Trump is a “cunt.”

That’s an offensive term no matter the context. I expect better from you guys.

*sigh*

I honestly don’t understand what this sigh is for. Do you approve of using that word as an insult?

If you need to B*tch about something... this is the place

I just have a straight talk unlimited phone plan and can just use my phone as a hotspot with no extra charge. It’s great. Obviously no substitute for real internet but it’s good enough to watch YouTube or Netflix in reasonable quality if you’re some place without WiFi and just looking to pass the time.

The first 10 GB are at a higher speed, but after that it still works with no fees but it’s a little slower but I’ve never even noticed when I’ve gone over do it must still be good enough to do simple things like that.

Are The Prequels That Bad?
Time

I’m pretty sure it was actually “I don’t like sandwiches” and was original meant to be a middle finger to quiznos for charging too much to cater to them on set. The bread was course and rough and the contents always spilled out and got everywhere. Then they realized sandwiches weren’t specific to quiznos and they just dubbed out “wiches” so as not to hinder a future friendship with subway.
