I don't have any real love for Star Wars. I watched the original trilogy a fair few times as a kid and enjoyed them a lot, but they never really stuck with me that much. I saw Episode 1 in theaters and I guess that's kind of where I stopped caring. Never saw Episodes 2 or 3. I like the idea of Star Wars, but actually getting into it is a whole different thing. I can definitely appreciate that it spawned the whole Expanded Universe and has now become this fully fleshed out, sprawling entity with limitless possibilities. I think that's all really cool, especially for people who are super into it. But for me, my appreciation of it is basically where my investment ends.

That said, I am honestly really excited for The Force Awakens. The trailers look excellent. I'm positive it will turn out much better than any of the prequels.

Your sentiments mirror mine exactly. I loved the hell out of this movie, and it was definitely one of the best theater experiences I've ever had. The end was emotional in a way I never expected from this series and it couldn't have been more perfect. I really want to see it in theaters one more time before it's gone, preferably in IMAX, but I just don't know if I'll have the chance. I know I will watch the shit out of it once the Blu-ray comes out, though. Either way, I can't wait to see it again. The movie is like 90% action and it's absolutely spectacular to watch. Also, the amount of extremely cartoonishly dumb shit that goes on exceeds every other film in the franchise, especially with all of The Rock's scenes, and with shit like Dom lifting up a car while Brian works under it for like five minutes. I love that stuff.

@cakebomb: So do the benefits of a camcorder outweigh the cons? Specifically talking about the usage of filters and lenses in this case. I'm aware of adapters for camcorders that allow for this, but is it really worth it? I'm still leaning heavily towards DSLR, but I thank you for your suggestions of both.

TIME PARADOX!

Seriously, this looks really dumb. Possibly so dumb that it will be fantastic. I mean, shit, old Arnie vs. young Arnie essentially playing rock 'em sock 'em robots has the potential to be the greatest thing ever filmed. Wondering how in the hell robots "age"? Who cares, fuck it! I'm weirdly into the way this film clearly does not give a flying fuck.

It's because the Terminators are living tissue over metal endoskeleton. The skin on the surface still ages, just way slower than that of a human. They may not give a fuck about anything else, but that is something that definitely makes sense in the context of the Terminator universe.

I chose the Seaside Soiree just because I like the word "soiree". I'm good for Goomba's Greedy Gala, though. The Bowser one looks alright, too. These maps seem pretty straightforward compared to the incomprehensible clusterfuck of the map they played in 3.

@i_stay_puft: I'm pretty sure everyone hated DH5. Nobody I've talked to who has seen that piece of shit ever had anything nice to say about it.

I also didn't really hate Salvation. It's a fairly entertaining movie, it just feels nothing like a Terminator movie. It's still better than T3. It also has one of the absolute best trailers of all time. Too bad it never stood a chance of living up to it.

As for Sam Worthington, he was in Avatar, the highest grossing movie of all time, which came out after Salvation. You may have forgotten about that part, haha. He's also going to be in however many more of those there end up being, and they're all guaranteed to make obscene amounts of money. So he at least has that going for him.

I've been trying to get into filmmaking for awhile now, seeing as I'm majoring in it. I'm finally ready to buy my first camera. Thing is, I basically know jack shit about cameras. I've gotten some advice and recommendations from friends and fellow students, but nothing solid as of yet.

I'm looking for something of decent quality, obviously. Nothing super fancy, but something versatile and intuitive. My budget is between one and two thousand, but I'd like it keep it in the $1,500 range if possible. I've been told by some to go with something slightly cheaper and focus on lenses and filters, as that's where the most noticeable quality changes lie when shooting. In that case I'm likely to go with a DSLR over a camcorder. I've had some recommendations for some of the better Canon gear, and I've looked into those a bit. I'd like to explore some more options, though.

Any advice or information anyone here can provide me is greatly appreciated!

The Unseen Village makes me want to set a fucking nursing home on fire. While the game hasn't exactly been a walk in the park up until this point, I haven't had that much trouble getting anywhere. This level is brutal, though. I really want to see this game through to the end, but at some point I'm just not having fun.

I for one can't get behind this film cause Jai Courtney is freakin terrible. I still blame him for Die Hard 5.

Don't. Die Hard 5 would've been a fucking mess with or without him. He was honestly like the least of that film's issues. I really wish he wasn't in this, though.

I'm going to see it regardless of how it turns out. I can't believe they would spoil a huge twist in the trailer like this. Perhaps there's an even bigger twist they're hiding with this one, but I don't know if I should give the writers that much credit just yet.

I've been fed up with them for awhile. I'm sick of buying a game one day and not being able to play it until late at night or even the next day because of some massive patch that takes an eternity to download.
