At CinemaCon, Peter Jackson debuted ten minutes of footage from the upcoming movie. The movie is being shot at 48 fps, which is double the normal rate that film is shot at, 24 fps. The clip of the film that was shown was criticized for looking so real that it looked fake. Jackson just shrugs off the criticism and says that people aren’t used to it and that ten minutes is tool small of a sample to get used to. I am waiting for the film and I am anxious to see what all the buzz is about.
The piece talks about much a nice guy he is. A former coach named his son Durant, he is hard not to like. They spend a little too much time talking about the whole black nerd thing. He isn’t that nerdy, he said that he just likes the look. So he is a hipster then.
An op-ed about how folks are not used to talking to each other face to face. Instead we turn to the internet, the mobile phone and technology to communicate to each other. People can sit in the same room and all be on the phones, we can all be alone together. I miss talking and just being around folks and telling stories. Nowadays people aren’t willing to sit and chat. People are unable to stand still for a few seconds without grabbing their phone. Its all about appearances and how you can’t look alone.
And I am not talking about The Walking Dead ones. Here is an article that is the start of a larger piece, about walking. How did America stop walking? Why do we walk? There are a lot of questions posed as to why walking has fallen out of favor with a lot of people. I find it extremely interesting, since I don’t have a car and I bike, longboard or walk everywhere I need to.
It still exists, in sports, in life and on twitter. Joel Ward scores the overtime goal to knock the Boston Bruins, the defending Stanley Cup Champions, out of the playoffs and twitter explodes with these tweets. I would say something but these tweets speak for themselves
An article describing why, they think, it rules so hard. Cabin is just enough Whedon to hold me over till the Avengers finally Assemble, see what I did there? (Avengers Assemble is the international title of the film).
