Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Edit Suggestions
Time

Hi - it's been a while since I've posted.


I'm still interested in knowing if anyone doing any editing of this film would be interested in changing the title from "Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" (too long and clunky in my opinion) to just "Marauders of the Crystal Skull."

I've always felt that my idea for the title sounded more in keeping with the Indy movie titles, particularly when you consider it's likely the last Indy movie. It would be a nice way of book-ending the series with the first movie's title ("Raiders of the Lost Ark").

Recovering Data From A Dead USB Pendrive
Time

So, my 8 GB pendrive died on me. My computer does not recognize the USB drive when I plug it in. The light on the drive does not light up to indicate a connection. My pendrive starts getting warm while it is plugged in. I am thinking that there is a short somewhere in the wiring that provides power to the drive. Does anyone have any recommendations for how I can recover my data? A local company says they can attempt to repair it but that it will cost ~$70. :P

Help With A Small DVD
Time

I am helping my wife edit a video/photo collage from her school. In all, it is about three minutes long, one video completed in Womble, burned with DVD Lab Pro. It plays fine on the computer and our home DVD player but a) won't load in one at school and b) appears black and white and has audio glitches in another. I used Verbatim discs, so I'm not sure what the issue is, unless it is the small video size. What can I do to fix this?

The new Clone Wars movie
Time
lordjedi said:

Second, it was not a pretty good film at all. I found myself wincing everytime Ahsoka said "Skyguy". What the hell kind of way is that to respect the Jedi that's been charged with teaching you? At least Anakin always referred to Obi-Wan as "Master". And I find it hilarious that Jabba simply takes Dooku at his word that it's the Jedi that have kidnapped his son, rather than send his own cronies out to find out for sure.

This movie was laughable.

As you guys have noticed, I've not been around much lately at all. I came here to get reaction to the new movie that came out this summer. I had been thinking "Maybe this time things won't be so bad. Maybe this time a new SW movie will be okay."

This post made me realize that I never want to see The Clone Wars animated movie.

"Skyguy?" Seriously. That makes me puke.

A plot involving Jabba's son? What? WHAT?!?

This whole thing sounds like a bottom-of-the-barrel fan-fic written by a 13-year-old girl with a crush on Hayden Christensen.

At least I didn't miss anything.

I hope all is well with all of my old friends here. Talk to you again soon!

I actually found SSW:TESB to be much easier than the first SSW. I've not played SSW:ROTJ, though. It's so great when Vader says, "All too easy" in the fights.

Yeah, I'm still stuck on SNES and Super Mario World. I'm still plugging away on my own hack of SMW. When I get a demo out, I'll let you guys know here so you can play.

It is nowhere near finished yet, unfortunately. When I finish World 2 (hopefully in a few weeks), I will probably put out a demo.

Just out of curiosity, how come you're using the SMB3 (All-Stars) Goomba instead of the SMW Goomba? Just a personal preference of look, or is it because the SMW Goombas don't die when stepped on?
It is a combination of both.
Originally posted by: Nanner Split
Maybe I'm misinformed, but isn't SMW the only Mario game where the Goombas were like that? Because from my understanding that's the only game that didn't have them as angry walking mushrooms, so it may have something to do with continuity.

Originally posted by: Gaffer Tape
Well, technically, they're designed as angry, walking chestnuts, not mushrooms, as their original name, Kuribo, implies. Semantics aside, yes, that is the only game where stomping on them doesn't kill them, so I was wondering if he personally didn't like the unconventional SMW version, and maybe that's why he replaced it.

I really always hated the unconventional SMW version of the Goombas, so in my version, they are stompable and look "normal" again. In SMW in Japan, they were called "Kuribon," which may be implying that they were a separate sub-species. Who knows? I'm just aiming for consistency. That was pretty much the only game where they were like that. In Japan, they've always been chestnuts, sure, but in the US at least they have always been mushrooms. And SMW had some other issues with enemy continuity (see above, I also changed the Amazing Flyin' Hammer Bros. and Sumo Bros. to be more like SMB3-style Hammer Bros.).

I and a lot of other folks are making games by editing the Super Mario World ROM. A GUI-based program called Lunar Magic makes it as easy as dragging and dropping. By using other programs, you can insert new enemies, music, etc. - it's pretty fun.

And, since you are just editing the ROM, it is compatible with most or all emulators - I can play mine on my PS2.

I was wondering about that too - around Christmas, there were figures for Biggs in his naval uniform and the mantis-armed thing from (I think) SW.

I love the old switcheroo - I do that all the time. I hope I'm not blacklisted at Best Buy/Wal-Mart!

FFIX is a PS1 game. You can only save PS1 games (for some dumb reason) on a PS1 memory card.

If nothing else, there are great PS1 emulators around now that can play your games from your CD-ROM. Buy a controller for your computer, and the experience is fairly similar.

Looking for a good torrent site...

I've not been doing much torrenting lately, but I really miss Demonoid. What are some good torrenting sites out there right now, particularly any that are like the Demonoid community was?

There Will Be Blood...

"DRAINAGE!!!"

So, what was up with Eli/Paul? Any ideas?

One of my favorite parts was when Eli went to visit Daniel near the end and is trying to wake him up. He tries several different ways to wake him - all unsuccessful. Finally he screams, "Your house is on fire!" but still, Daniel sleeps on, snoring heavily. Eli leans close and says, "Daniel, it's Eli." The snoring stops.

Did anyone else find it interesting that Daniel had zero relationships with women and never was found sleeping in a bed? He was always "camped out," even indoors.

Any interpretations of the final line?

Also, who else thought that as dark and serious as this was, there were also some hilarious parts?

Finally, was I the only one to see some Kubrickian echoes in (at least) the beginning and end of this movie?

Has anyone else watched this yet? I would love to see what others thought of this movie.

If you've not seen it yet, I would highly recommend it. It is one of the best films I've seen in a long time.
