    I saw it for the first time a couple of months ago and really enjoyed it. I was simply entertained by it. But the Hitchcock I'd never seen before and LOVED which I also saw recently was Strangers on...

    Yeah, sometimes things don't make sense. Other things to try, change the system frequency from whatever it's at (24hz to 59.94 or vice versa). If you're in AVCHD, switch to MOV recording. If all else...

    Hmm, not sure what the problem is but it definitely shouldn't be doing that. I have an Aputure VS-1 Fine HD that does not exhibit that behaviour. Did you make sure HDMI out is 8-bit not 10-bit? Also...
  4. The predictive rotoscoping tools in After Effects are insane!

    These new tools are amazing and can fix the most challenging shot. Unreal. You almost don't need green screen anymore.

    This one might be too "mainstream" for your taste Patty, but few scenes are as dependant on lighting for their effectiveness as this one from Close Encounters.

    Any scene from Barry Lyndon. There are of course the famous scenes lit only by candles and shot with an f .7 lens provided by NASA. But also many of the interiors, which appear lit by natural light,...

    Isn't that stuff worked out though before the writer starts? On a typical sitcom, in the writers room they hash out plots and beats, maybe come up with some gags, and then send the assigned writer...

    Definitely a valid approach for a sitcom, as they are mostly people talking in rooms anyway. The same room. Week after week. And maybe a feature comedy. I never wrote a funnier script than the one I...

    My issue with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood isn't pacing, it's the aimlessness of the narrative. There is nothing much at stake for nearly two thirds of the movie and the scenes don't build on each...

    Since we're complaining about network TV, it seems every sitcom nowadays is just non stop sex jokes. I'm no prude but it's obnoxiously relentless. Especially the Chuck Lorre shows. I don't really...

    Barry Lyndon is glacially paced by modern standards, often composed of nearly motionless frames. Yet I find it totally riveting and am never bored. Meanwhile, the latest Michael Bay extravaganza...

    I don't know why you're wishing me luck, I'm not involved. LOL. Maybe the easiest would be if the TV detects a 24p signal it automatically disables the motion smoothing.

    Filmmaker mode isn't enough. It has to be idiot proof. There needs to be metadata shared between the disc player, or streaming file, and the display device so it automatically disables the feature.

    When I was in college I saw Apocalypse Now in 70mm at the Cinema Dome in Hollywood. Gorgeous images and sound that shook the whole theater. One of the top five movie going experiences of my life.

    I've always been able to see them on the ships, and on the camera snaking through the house. The filmmakers did their best to try and hide them with lighting and smoke, so I think it's fine to finish...

    War of the Worlds (1953) 4K Remaster!

    Any fans of vintage sci-fi should check out the latest remaster of this movie. It's only on streaming sites, but it looks and sounds phenomenal. I watched it on iTunes (both the HD and 4K are the...

    I have a 106" screen and sit about ten feet from it. I want to be enveloped by the image to a degree, and look around some. More absorbing to me. You also learn more about how a good director,...

    Getting an uncanny valley feel from some of that de-aging. Hopefully they work it out by release.

    There was also not a single n-word. Actually, there were no black characters in this either, which I guess accounts for that.

    After mulling the film overnight, I've come to the conclusion that this is probably Quentin Tarantino's least successful film from a writing standpoint. I HATED Hateful Eight, but I don't think it...
