    Perhaps it was the more obvious movement between 'alternate universes'... I don't know if that worked as well as it was intended.

    My comparison of 'then and now' is the Bolex Windup 16mm camera, which was $300 at the time i was considering going in the direction of cinematography vs. still photography.

    I believe I've read that there is a 'write the story' plugin, that not only writes the story, does a 'Turing Test' on the results, and gives a score of how indistinguishable the result is from what a...

    Every single 'TV' show I have ever seen, there is 'talking'... far more than many films. 'TV', even from modern examples of say "Game of Thrones", there is 'talking'... there sure isn't 10 minutes of...
