Andrei Rublev. It’s truly an incredible film. Words can’t give it the due it deserves.

The 1966 version? (I am not sure if they have remade this - like so many others?)

It is a film I have been meaning to view for a long time, yet have never quite got around to it. I think I really must rectify this as many people say good things about Tarkovsky’s film.

If the recently updated plot leaks are true then TROS will somehow actually be worse than TLJ, at least insofar as the writing of the story and characters.

Can’t wait for TROS to release to DVD, watch it once out of morbid curiousity and then try to forget the ST altogether for the rest of my life…

I think there is more chance that people who won’t / will not like TROS, and some indeed seem to have made their minds up on IX before seeing it, will be endlessly posting about it everywhere.

Much like they have for TLJ or other new Star Wars films they don’t like.
 

Closed minds - closed hearts. Fandom seems to be more about hating on things these days, and letting others know endlessly about it. I can’t see many of the ST bashers forgetting about it just becuase the ST are coming to an end. Hate begets hate.

The Scifi Films and Television of 2019

^ I remember the 1980’s version with fond memories, a really good concept let down by the budget and likely weekly grind of making a lot of episodes back-to-back for tv in that era.

It did have some shonky acting at times too 😉

 
 

Has anyone here seen or can recommend ‘I Am Mother’?

It looks quite alluring - though I hope it is not in the vain of an expensive Sy-Fy channel ‘movie of the month’ type film…

In ESB when Han says “Then I’ll see you in hell.” that line used to be “Then I’ll see you in HELLLLL!!!” with the “hell” part really screamed and loud, later on they seemed to mute that down a lot.

Is this true, a fact?

Well at the least it is true that I heard it in theater way back with the “hell” sounding a lot louder. I suppose there is always some chance it could just be that some theaters had speakers that had some sort of spikes that matched his voice and the way he said that and it made it sound more boosted, although that seems far less likely and reasonable of an explanation than that they just dampened it down a bit to not stress a semi-swear word as much or something.

This seems a little anecdotal to be included as a change here? Maybe it is more likely to be an issue with the theater you were viewing the film at, with nobody else apparently having this experience?

My little town cinema struggled with some TLJ scenes - there was pixelation during key scenes with explosions. At the larger cinemas there were no such pixelation problems.

‘Blizzard bosses reduce gamer’s ban and release prize money’:

https://www.bbc.com/news/newsbeat-50026401

It appears too little too late to be of any honest intention from Blizzard, the damage has already been done, to what signifcance, who knows?

 

Is there a reason why not many people post in here? I thought a tech news thread would be more popular on a sci-fi site like this?

<em>Star Wars: The Clone Wars</em> To Return With New Episodes
Time

I hope this doesn’t suffer from a lack of awareness or publicity due to the prominance and publicity drive for Episode IX. I haven’t seen or heard much about this series returning other than the initial announcment, and was hoping for a trailer or series of interviews for the return of The Clone Wars by now.

(Patience, I must learn patience 😉)

‘The media push for Space Movie 9: The Risening starts this week. Even if you’re sticking to quote-unquote “official” sources, you may want to consider drawing your online curtains to avoid seeing something you’d rather not. Tastes vary.’

He does later clarify…

‘(Before some clickbait movie site runs too far with this, I meant magazine covers and interviews and Force Friday this week)’
 

So it looks like we’ll be seeing some more publicity, and possibly some spoilers within later this week.

(and maybe an official trailer sometime soon too!)

They are lovely trailers, but for that the price being asked for the the blurays, they should be! 😃

I will wait until they come down in cost.
 

Many thanks to whoever posted the link in here to the official Doctor Who youtube channel - https://www.youtube.com/user/doctorwho/videos - if is fantastic, so much content on there for all fans of different Doctors, and fun moments as well 😃

The Rise of Skywalker box office results: predictions and expectations
Time

770m US
930m ‘Foreign’
1.7b total

I think it will do better than some belive. I mean, all the haters for TLJ and ‘Disney Star Wars’ will have to go watch it if only to endlessly complain and nitpick over and again for years to come.

Especially the clickbaiters, and the toxic and negative channels = more money made for the film they will hate or bullshit on. Some of them will no doubt be so hateful they will need to go see it multiple times to write down everything they will be angry about, find fault with, or dislike about it to make money themselves 😉
