isbn: 9780385604413 achoo* is the beginning of what will become Philip Pulman‘s (my blog) three book series his dark materials of which Chris Columbus intentionally fucked up after all hollywood dislikes a good narrative.
A simple but enjoyable read although later parts of feel a bit it lets make it easy for hollywood to fuck it up again or turn into a theme park ride – my brain kind of glazed over in part two.
I hope Pullman and agents will be more wary of americans getting the media rights this time round.
I think i once may have blogged (maybe a future post) of a film of young adult book which was awful and rushed as a film and i then discovered that Hollywood discarded it after book one sounds familiar ? (my blog).
Then netflix (my blog) made a tv series of it which was way more developed than the bug budget film was,
I wonder if this shows a disdain by film professionals for the films they think must be made or get money for and that television production has a better feel for stuff say chapters and the depth of the books.
It kind of explains the video game films and board game films and toy films (my blog). Perhaps writers have got wise to Hollywood and others have yet to figure this out?
Your citroen It needs new ice skates
Include Michael Bay* and an attempt by others to have there ‘ip’ used to sell things. As to the payoff it is not all success (my blog).
Being that holywood makes crap some of these more recent not successful films have been sent to streaming sites and as i do not intend to visit a cinema but notice the trend in toy films i thought i should at least sit through one non micheal bay film..
What i saw was the origin story, and despite one humorous shout out to another product line it was bereft of swearing, sex and scary bits, they had a go at f****r but think of the children stopped it.
Since i do not visit toy shops (my blog) i have no idea if you can buy discounted toy lines which was as sold by Hollywood.
Popcorn describes it well, i have no idea if sequels are being made or care.to tell what it was and lets leave it there
*some advertising agency did the idea first
altered carbon (my blog) has a bloke with a chinese sounding name – and was ‘stored on a computer’ for two centuries – apparently if your a sjw journalist that means he will always be chinese regardless of the fact he was not born on earth. That is like the bloke from avatar (the blue smurfs) not needing a mew biology to breath because of the toxic to humanity atmosphere. anybody for smurf wheelchair tree climbing ? – so is it ok for a white bloke to go native, but not a chinese bloke to use a body which is not the correct ethnic stereotype.
Every time i read what a sjw journalist thinks and is contrary to the idea of the author, let alone tv series that shit for brains sjw cant get the idea of perhaps the 4th estate should die being irredeemable retards who either cannot read or grasp that if you transcend time, and planets biology and ancestry is rather moot. Elon Musk will only pack a swim suit when he emigrates to mars wont he.
This ‘problem’ is also seen with rotten tomatoes where mere mortals disagree with these special people and these people seem most upset that we unwashed do not think the way they think.
I would hope that people (not the sjw’s) would also read the original work – i like the adaption so far*
There are other aspects that i have blogged about but i do not think think anybody needs entertainment journalists with liberal art degrees today. I do not think these people are essential** the way they think they are to big corporations and might even be toxic to balance sheets.
Anyhow not my problem
*i will review it properly at a later date. **how dare you not see the star wars film we ‘liked’
The ime, spectre and meltdown are issues that affect most processors not just intel’s since amd have those same flaws or different name for there security ‘engine’ which also may or may not be violating an open source license.
This happened to the pentium in the 1990’s too.
I am sure somebody at the nsa is rather sad that these issues have come to light but as all of us are in the same boat it proves that while gentlemen do spy on each other there efforts to spy mean they are as bad as the others and sod democratic ideals.
Baboons give us a, give a b give us a c
While my monkey house screenplay for superape where a monkey flies and saves other apes from disaster is no doubt probably not weapons grade wmd at least the nsa have read it. (my blog) – is it bird ? no its super ape how dare hollywood not contact me*
It will be interesting to see what happens to hardware post these design flaws, doing an nvida seems the wrong approach so perhaps we might see hardware with open software on the processor something your friends at the nsa wont like
But if they kept mum on the issue perhaps there mission to protect democracy is an false mission and as long as spies seek to undermine all for there career then a rethink is in order.
I kind of doubt that open source processors will become popular, or open firmware will become a thing by looking at routers will tell you that.
I would buy an open processor, being the zoo runs open firmware on its routers, and non fucked up gpus and pci slots (my blog) It shall be interesting to see if it happens. It would be nice to upgrade a video card without throwing away all it if you think about it.
First off i saw intestellar on dvd compared to the cinema (my blog) the sound was better than in a cinema and that set off my ape brain about stuff. Better with subtitles but great music.
As you know i avoided star wars in the cinema (my blog) which seemed to be all ‘great’ but no negative views either.
So i rented it on dvd and saw it it, great set design, heavy on women and ethnic minorities, shit story and heavily edited to get a universal rating but the ‘sword’ fights where cartoonish and apart from three drops of red stuff the death was light even by disney’s standards i doubt if an more ‘gory’ cut will be released .
The fascist scum got angry and the weapon seems to designed by the retarded after three attempts at building weapons being an idiot seems to be a requirement.
I suppose it was better than the Jar Jar films which cashed in and sold out, and most of the old cast seemed unwilling combatants but i am sure the pay was good.
Is this not a wisdom of crowds thing where everybody in the cinema had to like it – ‘conditioning’ anybody.
social justice warrior
Another film i saw on dvd but a film industry gong producing machine some months ago and something i know of the source material was again a disappointment. Money tames… and i was reading that children’s film (i write this one summer) and a musician Andre Rieu (my blog) has beaten both a film with women and ghosts, and that star trek film which i have not seen or am planning to.
That’s got to hurt somebodies ego.
anti gay toilet in Sochi Russia
Hollywood’s locals are having a few issues, on Tuesday it became interesting as one gay actor got another gay actors series cancelled. Since the first can be perceived as gay and on a sjw themed tv show i wonder if that will not have a negative effect.
I do not particularly care as to what these darlings do but if the sjw’s unleash there thought police mentality on on the liberal elite then perhaps the rest of you will see the toxic results mirror a certain comic book firm is a good example now.
Whatever the result or the culture allowed it the veneer that it is just pretend is kind of dismantled.
My concern is the continued abuse of copyright not what happens* as one of the two main reasons Hollywood iis where it as in the beginning it had no copyright laws perhaps there is a history of not looking at those who lawmakers and politicians court .
*cottaging is a term for gay sex activities – that dead singer from wham might come to mind.
Star Trek latest incarnation Discovery is a bit of a disaster imho with Americans paying over the odds for it. That is cbs first error but as an non american not my problem.
Does this mean netflix international becomes the metric deemed successful tv series – not sure Hollywood will approve of that. Think on that.
Prelude to Axnar looked better – even if it was on sticky copyright ground.
youtube which was shut down by cds/paramount.ssince the fans appeaar to do star trek better than jj abrams who might have had the cast* but rebooted and failed in film.
First up my criticisms of st:d are:
- an angry vulcan human [woah]
- women*women*women [sjw]
- redesigned klingons [$]
- um did you see that youtube video i linked too?
- Why are cbs doing the Tom Paris [voyager] thing?
- Replacement ships [more voyager] syndrome
It felt like a bad star trek film** [hint jj abrams at the helm] rather than a tv series. So it feels like paramount/cbs are screwing it up aand getting netflix to pay for it. I look forward to seeing the cbs executive who makes the netflix demograhic a thing justifiable.
Many insiders wont like that.
Having seen the first two (second was 38 minutes) long it appears that 12 minutes of adverts can be inserted by others the same reduced running time as st:v. which saw the reduction from 45 minutes to 38 minutes.
Somehow i fear netflix got conned by cbs.
I am still waiting for a tv show – not an excuse for jj abrams to make lost profit on him failing to do star trek right.
*until Chekov was killed by a jeep. ** even i have not seen the last yet
If you want to make a high profit hollywood film better forget it with hollywood accounting (my blog)
Anyhow some films do have a high profit to cost ratio, these are horror films with shit production values which mean two people and half a dog seeing the film equal a profit. Which brings me to the human centipede of which i can happily tell you was on free tv unknown by me one day in the past.
Having heard (my blog) of the nature of this film i decided to have a view although i had missed the start.
The horror was oddly mia – a dentist extraction scene saw a cut from the actors to a prop and then there was the moaning*, and the people pretending to be the thing where wearing underwear.
Prudish ? – having removed teeth and pretending to have surgically glued three people together of something i discover that underwear is a thing.
If this is what shocks your average horror fan then there a bit retarded.
Five minutes of this crap reminded me of midget horse riders (my blog)
I have no idea what happened , but know they made a sequel of which i have no desire to see.
You have to wonder why some choices where made.
*excuse the pun
isbn: 9780718184070 is an odd book since it is written by a film screen writer which means it failed the hollywood test. I am not inclined to rate it as a book since the writer really is not a writer.
It shall be interesting to see if it now passes the hollywood test, i somehow doubt it will. Interesting for its comment on the film industry but not a book
