Re: Avatar: The Way of Water (2022, D: Cameron) S: Worthington, Saldana

There's an app called RunPee that will let you know when's the best time to take a bathroom break during a movie. You can even start it when the movie starts and it will vibrate your phone when a...

Re: Why do so many streaming services encode video at the wrong frame rates?

Yes, in the behind-the-scenes video, he does mention he's shooting 50hz.

Also, conversion of 60/50i material to 30/25p is a much bigger problem, since...

Re: Why do so many streaming services encode video at the wrong frame rates?

You actually didn't mention that it also stutters on the Shield. You mentioned it stutters on the FireTV stick, then checked it on the Shield for "more details," but didn't mention any stuttering on...

Re: Why do so many streaming services encode video at the wrong frame rates?

What do you mean by "original framerate," and how do you know which one is original? Theatrical films are 24fps, and have always been altered for TV to 23.976 for legacy NTSC reasons. A show that...

Re: Why do so many streaming services encode video at the wrong frame rates?

Film isn't shot at 23.976, but 24fps. It's projected at 24fps, even for digital cinema. The SMPTE DCP standard has only straight integer framerates:...

Re: The General Star Wars Discussion Thread

OMG, you haven't seen Attack of the Clones? How can you call yourself a fan without seeing every Star Wars movie, even the bad ones? You should watch AotC in its entirety just to confirm it's...

Re: The Official "3D" Blu ray Thread. Now with Smell-O-Vision.

Boss Baby 2: Family Business was released on 3D Blu-ray in a number of countries, including Korea and Hong Kong, which are region A.

Random Space Media is releasing it as well on June 15, region...

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

That's just for first-party titles though, right? Third party studios may opt to release a PS4 version for longer.

Also, that's still almost 2 1/2 years away, and will be a little over 4 years...

Re: The Beatles: Get Back (2021, D: Peter Jackson) -- documentary series (Disney+)

All indications, including the few copies that got out before Disney recalled the discs and postponed the release date, is that the set is extremely bare-bones.

Also, that Amazon listing is crazy...

re: Star Wars: Skeleton Crew -- from Jon Watts / S: Jude Law

I mean, Iron Man was successful and launched a franchise, as well as establishing a good portion of the "house style," but even in that film was anyone looking it and marveling at the direction?...

re: Star Wars: Skeleton Crew -- from Jon Watts / S: Jude Law

I mean, you saw the two Marc Webb directed Spider-Man movies right?

I guess Jon Watts isn't a flashy director, but there's something to be said for competence and core understandings of story and...

Re: Doctor Who (BBC America) -- Series 13 Discussion Thread -- premieres 10/31/21

Regarding audience burnout, maybe, but the complaints from the audience seems to be "the show was bad recently," not "the show is as good as it ever was, I'm just not interested anymore." Maybe...

Re: Doctor Who (BBC America) -- Series 13 Discussion Thread -- premieres 10/31/21

That seems like such a weird place to revert back to though. Are you saying you don't like any of the show from 2005 on, and want it all replaced? Like, what's the point of replacing the part of the...

Re: Doctor Who (BBC America) -- Series 13 Discussion Thread -- premieres 10/31/21

What do you mean by "reboot"? Like, start from scratch, with a new First Doctor? Because with a new showrunner (albeit returning) and new actors, it's pretty much as close to a reboot as the show has...

I thought you just were being snarky, but they did just cast someone to play a new Rose.

Re: Doctor Who (BBC America) -- Series 13 Discussion Thread -- premieres 10/31/21

Well Davies does seem to be interested in fan service. The article doesn't explicitly state it, but it seems likely they'd be part of a 60th anniversary special.

Re: Avatar: The Way of Water (2022, D: Cameron) S: Worthington, Saldana

They literally filter out half the light going to each eye (the opposite polarization meant for the other eye). Theaters can compensate for this by turning up the brightness on the projector for 3D...

Re: Avatar: The Way of Water (2022, D: Cameron) S: Worthington, Saldana

There's clip on filters you could buy and bring to the theater. My wife uses them with her glasses. The "circular polarised" work with RealD and Disney 3D, while IMAX and Dolby 3D use...

Re: Doctor Who (BBC America) -- Series 13 Discussion Thread -- premieres 10/31/21

I haven't seen the show, but my understanding is that Sex Education is rated TV-MA and deals with frank discussions and depictions of sex, but it isn't pornographic.

Also important to remember...

Re: Westworld -- The News, Rumors, Casting, Discussion Thread [Possible Spoilers]

My understanding is that there's a time jump of only a few months between S2 and S3. S1 was vague about the dates, due to trying to hide there being two different time periods during that season, and...

Re: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (2023, D: James Gunn)

I think the logic is that Tony's wish for the snap was "dust Thanos and his minions," but by that point in the film Gamora II was no longer Thanos's minion, so she didn't get dusted.

Re: The Official "3D" Blu ray Thread. Now with Smell-O-Vision.

In the blu-ray.com forum, others are reporting Amazon giving them a delivery estimate of June 10. Apparently some Best Buy orders have already shipped.
