    1. Quite possibly one of the most interesting and most useful references to typography and symbology in the movie Alien.

      Okay, one of the only.

    1. I wanted to try something very different. So, I use another writing system to write my original thoughts. I use the Wakandan writing system to write my thoughts because I already know how to write in it and I virtually know almost no one else who knows how to.

      An example of someone (u/Nervous-Deal7560) using the Wakandan writing system to distinguish their ideas from those of sources!

    1. You know, I haven’t been to the movies in over three years, and at this point I’m not sure what would bring me back.

      @benwerd Having kids makes the value proposition even worse... (and I'm saying this as a movie addict whose run a theater before).

    1. So what you're trying to do is like in the movie Contact with Jodie Foster, where they built the contraption to go to outer space, and then it was sabotaged by some religious fanatics. Unbeknownst to everyone else, they had something also in Hokkaido, Japan, another version that 00:42:26 no one knew about. You're trying to build this parallel system, do the research and the thinking and the Overton window of this new system simultaneous as the super-organism tries to continue business as usual.

      !- in other words : Arcadian project - Movie contact is a metaphor to Michaux's project, try to build the framework for the new system even as old system continues operating with all its dangers

    2. Eventually I figured out that the spiral was created from a single ellipse that rotates and scales at an exponential rate. The shape spends a lot of time small and slowly rotating, but as it accelerates, it spins and grows faster.

      This is the sort of trivia any film buff should research and know.

    1. James Whale’s Frankenstein (1931) and Bride of Frankenstein (1935) explored both the hubris of the male scientist described in Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus (1818) as well as the repressive sexuality of Western culture. Robert Wise’s The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951) advocated for a liberal belief in the collective submission to a technocratic elite.

      I initially found this article by searching for "alien movie hubris" and the search results did not disappoint. This essay does a great job weaving several themes about creativity, automation, intelligence, biology, culture, ambition, power, delusions of grandeur, human spirituality and sexuality, and a few more I'm probably forgetting. It's definitely worthwhile reading.

    1. Asian countries

      Another movie that exploded with viewers in Asian countries was "Crazy Rich Asians."

    2. Love, Simon

      I believe Love Simon was a great way to incorporate the expression of the LGBTQ+ community into the romcom world.

    1. simple Japanese characters because otherwise Ichiro could not have read it.

      as we saw in the videos, a lot of the Japanese-Americans interned didn't even speak Japanese, only about 3% did. Even people who were 1/16 Japanese were interned

    1. docs the calf regard the bleating of the shee

      Well Mr. Sheridan, what would you say about a big crazy dogbear thing that screams like a woman?

      Seriously, Annihilation (the movie more than the book, but the book, too) is interested in the blending of species and how the human responds when the nice, neat categories of existence are muddied.

    1. Great overview and commentary. However, I would have liked some more insight into the ethical ramifications and potential destructiveness of an ASI-system as demonstrated in the movie.

    1. It was not easy to make the music of the film which belongs to a 3000 years Old civilization and which have very few evidence and things available which belong to that time so for the film maker the most challenging part was the film's music.

    1. Kodak is making a new analog/digital Super 8 camera, to be released in fall 2016. The price is expected to be $400 to $750. Film cartridge purchase, $50 to $75, will include developing and transfer to digital.

      The new camera has quite a few interesting features that set it well apart from Super 8 cameras made in the past. It is a digital/analogue hybrid product that records digital audio to SD cards alongside the film and will have a digital viewfinder.<br> . . .<br> The camera will also feature a "Max 8" gate which uses the space that used to be reserved for a magnetic soundtrack to capture a wider image. This makes it possible to film for a 16:9 aspect ratio with much less cropping and makes even more efficient use of the film available in a standard super 8 cartridge. It has a range of shooting speeds which are all crystal locked: 9, 12, 18, 24, 25 FPS.
