I'd love a DVD with all these fan commentaries on them
If you want more publicity you could also upload them you youtube and just throw a logo in as the "video."
Yes, for anyone who missed it, DO listen to The Abyss commentary. It's * a w e s o m e * !!
I've listened to it not once, not twice, but thrice!
Well garsh, thanks. I thought me talking for three hours might have been a bit much. And it probably was for some folks, but apparently not those who like DIF with the Cool Ranch Insider flavor.
As it turns out, three hours wasn't enough time - I spent at least another half hour telling tales after we ended the commentary. And that was without telling the one where Cameron got mad at me because something looked too good. Classic.
There are a few other flicks where I could fill most of a recording with True Tales From The Set, Team America comes to mind. I expect we'll get to that one eventually.
Alright, so, I spent a fair amount of my work day listening to DIFs. I am now in a fiercely critical and judgmental mood toward movies.
This does not bode well for the Transformers 2 premiere tonight.
Then our work here is done.
Neither do any of the reviews I've seen so far. But then nobody should really be expecting a "good movie" out of Transformers, I think most will be expecting to see action figures punching each other. Which I'm sure the movie will deliver magnificently, and the target audience will go home satisfied. Which would make it a "good movie" by a certain definition, tho maybe not up to everyone's standards.
David Mamet wrote an interesting essay in which he said modern Hollywood moviemaking isn't about drama anymore, it's more like the circus. Look over here - a scary thing! And over there, a funny thing! Here comes another scary thing! And for our grand finale, the biggest thrilling-est thing of all! Ta-dahhh! The end!
So maybe you could try looking at Transformers II as a movie version of the circus, and just enjoy the mayhem for what it is.
Oh believe me, that's where I'm coming from, and even though I actually enjoyed the first one (for those reasons, essentially... it was entertaining as hell) I'm going into this with no expectation at all. I'm actually expecting it to be a really bad movie... which is a first for a midnight premiere, for me.
Additionally/consequently, for anybody who'll happen to be around the ArcLight at Sherman Oaks tonight... I'll be at the bar at least 30 minutes before the midnight show.
I'd imagine the setup isn't really mobile... but a "Down-in-Front at the midnight premiere" might be kind of cool.
Tho, you might piss off the fans if you talk during the movie. It'd be neat as a special of sorts, going up to the early-bird fans and asking about what their expectations are, then doing a follow-up after watching it. Could be fun.
Have you uploaded the PAL version of TPM and AOTC?
PAL version of AOTC, yes, TPM, no.
If you want to convert an NTSC-fitting file to PAL, pop it into any audio editor (like the freeware Audacity, editing software of choice for Down in Front), change the speed by 4.096 percent (speeding it up), and the pitch by -4.096 (pitching it back down) to make it fit. That's all I do to my final NTSC mixes to make them PAL-friendly.
Cool. Thanks, Fig.
I think you boys need to move "Transformers 2" right up to the top of the review cue as soon as it hits dvd. Very... very... bad, I guess if you review it, it would mean you would have to watch it so you guys are going to have to do some serious discussion on if you want to hurt your eyes and ears that bad. Meagan Fox looks good though!
Just listened to the Phantom Menace recording, very funny stuff, will check out the Attack of the Clones one some time this week.
I'd love to hear you guys do Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
We need to keep you guys well-stocked with wine. The AOTC one was even funnier than the one for Starship Troopers, which definitely had me in stitches at the most inappropriate times.
HA! Funny stuff. I enjoyed listening to you guys.
For those of you who like the show, if you could take the time to rate and review the show on iTunes, we can hopefully start getting some of the attention our parents didn't give us and we so desperately crave ARE YOU PROUD OF ME YET FATHER?!
...Anyway, that'd be awesome of you.
Rated and wrote a review.
Thanks again for your hard work guys!
Are you really going to make me download iTunes? I thought I'd gotten rid when my iPod died.
Gah, silly Windows-using British boy.
It's times like this that I have to remind myself that you're Norwegian.
at least we have proper Carlsberg.
You can keep it, too.
So long as you keep your room-temperature lager, I'm allright with that.
