    For smooth motion, i.e. most cinema like blur on moving objects, a 180 degree shutter has been traditional for over a century, and is considered the norm. What 180 degrees really is - is one half of...

    My wife asked me if this was the Last Jedi Film. I said "God I hope so." But given Disney's purchase of Lucasfilm, I highly doubt it. Will it be a good movie? Well, I still don't understand where the...
