There’s a killer on the loose.

    One of the great things about movies of this era: they were shameless about what they were. Blood, guts, slaughter, boobs… like a breath of fresh air. Although I’m not sure what to think about a killer who wants to… er… “surf the crimson tide”…

    And, frankly, I’d put up with all the lens flare in the world if the movies weren’t freaking teal.

      Older movies took more risks. Sure, we get some edgy stuff now and then back back then almost everything was trying to one up the previous guy. Now it’s all “safe actor mixed with safe actress in bland movie”. A depressing paint by numbers the industry has become.

      I had to do some Urban Dictionary hunting to find the name of the Red Robin. Blech!

      Teal and Orange, teal and orange. Frustrating to all hell. Color correcting is fine in some movies but good lord people knock it off already. Every frikkin movie looks like it was filmed on the moon. (not to mention no one knows what a steady cam is anymore) Even the posters are teal and orange. I’ve been meaning to do a show dedicated just to how awesome posters used to be. Now they all suck.

      Oh and for the record, I loved JJ Abrams Star Trek but the lens flares were way to frequent. (even he admitted that he went overboard)

      • Cristiona:

        I liked JJ’s Trek too, but I was never much of a Trekkie, so that might be why. Karl Urban was perfect casting.

        I was thinking about color correction last week, actually. I don’t stress too much about teal and orange (I pick up bad dubs and sound work more easily), but some of them are just… way over the top. Amusingly though, I noticed that Leatherheads did some color correcting too: they did a sepia wash over the film, which I thought was a nice touch.

        • Cecil:

          I’ve been a Trek fan since I was a kid so I was really sceptical about a Trek reboot. It seemed silly that they wouldn’t just do another series or offshoot movie. Thankfully the movie was so good it pleased long time fans and brought in new ones. Others doing reboots/remakes should really take note.

          Color correction isn’t evil on it’s own, it actually is very effective in the right setting. (the opening scene in Saving Private Ryan for example) However when the entire film is color corrected to death, like the piece of garbage Gamer, it’s just lazy filmmaking. It’s a way of making the movie “stylish” without having any actual style.

    This one I’m gonna have to find!!!!

  • bastardjackyll:

    Good lord, the last 90 seconds of this video is one of the funniest things that I have seen all year. SIR FEIVEL!

  • MH:

    A professor told the class this story, and I was the only one who laughed. There is an ironic part to it.
    The story of the directors sounds similar to Laurie Bartram’s, who was a soap opera actress. She became a Christian. Jack Wyrtzen talked with her, and due to the stuff than went on behind the scenes in television or movies, she dropped out of acting. She became a student at what is now Liberty University. What is ironic is its policy on movies and the one last film she had to do because of her contract, while a student. She played Brenda in “Friday the 13th”.

    • Cecil:

      A shame, she could have turned her part in F13 into a recurring scream queen role. Oh well, not everyone is cut out for the game. It seems like she found religion and then all this stuff was evil. Sad she died so young too.

  • Vitus:

    I’ve been meaning to watch this one for a while now. I don’t care what anybody says. I’m back is one hell of a kick ass song. that whole born again christian and greyhound foundation thing was VERY unexpected. You are good with the digging up of info.
