As you say. Just understand the we delete most of the posts as SPAM that you accept as desperate number-building and yet we amass more posts than you collect in every single day. None of you would be welcome on our forums because you are chatroom fodder and highly worthy of deletion. All you jokers are capable of doing is resurrecting this place with the only thing you know how--SPAM. Keep it up. You are all hilarious to watch. http://pages.suddenlink.net/raven_image/smileys/tard.gif

Accept your useless status. You are jokes amongst the internet community and are laughed at every single day. The same goes for everyone at the Telltale forums. Jokes and spam, all.:lol:

We need a new Monkey Island game, that would work. Das, I assume you will be taking care of this. Chop chop. At least there is a new Finntroll track based on Monkey Island (oh yes there is...)

Das Mole
04-11-2007, 07:15 PM
i'll be sure to get right on that.

and for your INFORMATION. this is not useless spam. it's an earnest attempt to rally forth the masses and bring back a jolly old place that used to be so full of life but is now a quasi-rotting corpse of a forum.

It's no use to use the spinnaz here, because Davinq doesn't hang here. I don't even know why his teeth are even a smiley? and making fun of his mouth is kinda mean.

I like how my mind unintentionally stresses the phrase "hard to pass".

So far I can abstract this chart to the following:

A normal day - Type 2 or Type 3.
Like a ton of hot, hot, hoooooot AZN/MXCN food - Type 4.
A beer night - Type 6.
A weekend on several drugs like Cocaine, Ecstasy, MDMA, maybe Ketamine oh and lots of weed - Type 1.

Type 7 usually has the odd weird soft lump and its always very hot. I hat e type 7 but when you experience it, you know you're ill. Or have a very poor lifestyle. Probably both.

YES! I was a wee lassie, and I first puked in an asile full of creepy soccer moms with starbucks and crap. Puked all over their ugly ass sweaters. :3 Than I was really not feeling well and I crapped myself. I was like 6 at the time, and my mom made me a burrito at midnight that didn't pass till then.

Yes, he has... but to be honest, people are getting knighted for a lot of silly reasons now. Granted, Rushdie wrote a number of pretty decent books (apparently, I haven't read them so I couldn't say, but I've heard he has), but... well... isn't that it?

I swear, the moment David Beckham get's a knighthood, I'm leaving the country.

Sorry, but I'm afraid my book list is getting a big large at the moment, I've got a number of Neil Gaiman books to read and apparently I simply must read Dawkins, (although I'll be doing that with a complete open mind because unlike some I don't feel everything he says is absolute truth and I should praise the ground he walks on).

I've also got a number of other books to read and no time for Rushdie... perhaps later.

I've joined the masses i'm afraid.

Whats your opinions, i'm a very lateral thinker and reckon that Rowling will kill off Harry and Voldemort mainly because if she dosent for the rest of her life she'll be hounded to make another book.

I doubt it, there's a Harry on Ron sex scene in the new films. Only about three minutes, but it's pretty full-on apparently. Some people are criticizing Rowling for forcing new scenes onto the films to boost income.

You may not believe that, but it honestly is true.

Joshi
06-26-2007, 03:33 PM

I still stand by my claim.

Warner Bro's wont let her anywhere near the film set or writers room since what she did with the first two films... well that's not true, but she certainly doesn't have as much influence anymore after they found out she knows nothing about film.

Don't lie, you're also going to read it because all the other 6 were dead good and the 7th will likely be aswell. Just cos it's a kids book, doesn't mean we have to have shame!

itchythesamurai
06-27-2007, 07:55 AM
If you pre-order the new book over at the Amazon.com, you get a free $5 certificate for the month of August! I do the Amazon Prime so I get free two-day shipping, and there's no tax, so it's a pretty good deal for me.

I'm a casual HP fan. Read all of the books once, each one was good enough to warrant reading the next. Watched the first fifteen minutes of the first movie and decided that it was bollocks.

Ray Jones
06-27-2007, 08:05 AM
Bollocks as in testicles? Does that mean Potter is, in fact, first class and excellent performed PORN?

She definately has some sort of influence. Apparently she was given an early screenplay of Order of the Phoenix, in which a certain character had been cut, and she basically told them that if they did that they'd have problems in the seventh movie.

Ray Jones
06-27-2007, 09:42 AM
A good reason for not making the seventh!

Joshi
06-27-2007, 09:49 AM
Which just goes to show that she really doesn't know anything about movies. By the time the seventh movie comes out the majority of audiences (the majority being made up of non-fans and casual movie goers) will have forgotten about whatever chatacter was introduced here and would need to be introduced again anyway. If said character wasn't needed in OotP, they shouldn't have been included, it's just dead weight (my guess is, she's talking about Grawp).

It was her idea to include the Whomping Willow scene in Chamber of Secrets, a scene that most people wondered what the hell was doing there as it did nothing for the story, plot or characters and just seemed to be put in gratuitously. She probably argued that it was an important story point in Prisoner of Azkaban, but Curˇn had to re-introduce it there anyway in the form of the small insert of the bird being killed by it, so it really was unecessary.

There's no doubt JKR gets a little input, but she gets a hell of a lot less than she used to, the studio's learned the difference between a decent book adaption and just plastering everything from the book to the screen to please the fans (which is essentially what the first two movies did).

Ray Jones
06-27-2007, 10:18 AM
Ah-ha, and you know everything about movies or what? You know, you cannot just cut out important scenes from a porn movie without ruining the whole story.

Joshi

If said character wasn't needed in OotP, they shouldn't have been included, it's just dead weight (my guess is, she's talking about Grawp).

Your guess is wrong (if what I've read is true) ;) The character isn't particularly important in OOTP, but does become slightly more important in HBP (if I'm remembering correctly), by which time - I'm guessing - they would be awkward to introduce due to the circumstances. Does that even make sense?

the studio's learned the difference between a decent book adaption and just plastering everything from the book to the screen to please the fans (which is essentially what the first two movies did).

But there are times when too little is included. Have you seen Eragon? It's like someone glanced at a synopsis of the story and decided to make the movie based on that.

I didn't think the book was that bad, as long as you keep in mind what it is. The author was only in his late teens/early twenties when he wrote it, so you can't really expect too much. I thought he did quite well. I mean, if I tried writing a fantasy novel I'd have probably given up by chapter two.

As for the film, it was way too rushed. There was hardly any explanation for anything. And certain parts of the book were cut that make it practically impossible to make the second one (which is probably a good thing, considering what they did to the first one). It could have been so much better.

I'm avoiding Book seven spoilers, the OotP movie I'm fine with... i mean i've already read the book.

As for Kreacher, that's not actually that bad, they can put him in the film and still have him serve some sort of a purpose, but I feel JKR's treating these films as a series of films in the same way her books are a s eries of books, but book fans and movie fans tend to be quite different and as a vast majority of the movies takings are going to come from casual movie goers who haven't read the books and only saw the last film once a year ago, it's a mistake to think they should hang guns up in one film only to be fired in the next one.

Not wholy sure if I'd like to meet him in person, love his books, but I've seen interviews and well, he's a bit dissapointing compared to what I pictured in my head. Otherwise though, as far as his persona goes, I feel he's just able to speak his mind more than most people.

I'm not talking about dumbing stories down, I'm talking about tightening up the plot and leaving anything out that's completely irrelevent to the main plot. Movie making's about balance of plot, storylines and characters, it's not about including your favorite scene from the book simply because you liked it. If you want a movie that's a page by page translation of the book then be prepared to go see a 6 hour movie at minimum.

You generally have about 2 to 3 storylines going at once in a movie. If you include things that are irrelivant to them, there's no point to it.

If you want all that read a book. Depending on the type of movie anything longer than about 2 and a half hours tends to tire people out and they lose interest. And yes, I know you're about to argue about people with short attention spans again, but then not everybody has a decent attention span. I personally am able to sit through an entire season of 24 in one sitting (that's 16 hours) without getting bored and yes, I could sit through a 6 hour movie, but only if it was engaging. Most movies longer than about 2 hours tend to just drag on for no reason.

And making the movie seem real isn't as important as you think. Making it seem believeable and somewhat realistic is important, but actually real? Real life is boring. People go to the movies to get away from that.

You can sit down and watch an entire season of 24 without getting bored? Jesus. In my experience 24 works in sort of four-episode cycles - for three episodes a plot runs along and ends on major cliffhangers making you pull your hair out, but by the fourth episode it kind of resolves and something new starts up which allows you to get away before you get sucked in again.

The thing with the Harry Potter series is that they would make seven excellent mini-series of about ten or twelve hour-long episodes each (the same goes for Lord of the Rings, really.) This would be far too expensive for anyone to really do of course, and as it would make much less money than a single movie it's bad business too. Order of the Phoenix, compared to Goblet of Fire, is really a less eventful book. I'm sure they can fit quite a lot of what happens in the novel into the movie without having to cut entire storylines (like the 'SPEW' thing in Goblet) just by converting three separate scenes/conversations into one.

And I read that Kreacher had to be in the movie, because he still has some kind of important role in the last book. I can't remember where I saw that though so take it with a pinch of salt.

There's no way they can get away with a third of the hour being filled with adverts... Are you sure that this is true?

Actually, Now that I think about it, when I used to watch Lost (when it was good(ish); the first season) the adverts came on before the title sequence and after, with frequent breaks throughout.

I was made to watch the disgraceful Stormbreaker today. Please don't watch it, it will make you cry. The fact the Ewan McGregor was in it was really sad, he was superb in Trainspotting and now... this... :(
Anyway, the product placement in this film is terrible and blatant. One of the "gadgets" given to the main character (a secret agent...) is a "Nintendo DS Game system" given to him by Stephen Fry (Stephen F*cking Fry). The games are all "gadgets" too, utilizing the console's wireless capabilities as a bug-tracking device, and somehow getting the DS to emit smoke by inserting a cartridge into it. The last game presented by Fry, however, is Mario Cart. When asked what benefits this game has, Fry explains that it's just a game for if he gets bored on the flight, doing nothing for the plot or the development; the whole scene cshould have been avoided. There are other instances too, although this one was timed with the release of the DS, boosting the potential income from this scene. I wonder how much money they got from the product placement in that film. That really pisses me off, they knew it would be a successful, profitable film anyway because they had enough money to launch it properly. The obviously didn't have enough to make a good film, though. Arseholes.

Now, On the topic of book to film projects, I was disappointed with the made-for-TV Hogfather (Pratchett). In my opinion, Night Watch would make an epic film; much more potential than Hogfather. As is the way with Thud! in my opinion.

I have 5 seasons on DVD... yes, I'm sure it's true.

Ad breaks in the states are actually quite long compared to ours. It's somewhat ridiculous, I stayed with an American family in Ohio over Christmas and a single ad break (of which there will be about 3 or 4 in one half hour programme, so you can guess how bad hour long ones would be) can last very very long.

Also you should remember, we basically do the same thing here (although with only one ad break in a half hour program and a basic 3 in an hour long one), we don't have as many adverts, but because we get a lot of our programmes from the States, we have to have basic fillers, most if not all hour long TV shows from America are about 40 minutes long without ads. As an example, here in the UK, we used to show Buffy the Vampire Slayer (a US hour long TV show) on Sky One and BBC 2. As the BBC don't air adverts, it filled a 40 minute timeslot on BBC2, but because Sky did, it could fill an hour.

Actually, Now that I think about it, when I used to watch Lost (when it was good(ish); the first season) the adverts came on before the title sequence and after, with frequent breaks throughout.

Yeah, that's kind of how they did things, it annoyed the hell out of me in the states. The program would start with a cold opening and then as soon as the opening credits sequence passed, they'd go into advert for a good 5-6 minutes (no joke), back to the program for a while, another couple of ad breaks and then a final adbreak before showing the closing moments of the show OR just showing us the credits outright at which point it'll launch straight into the cold opening or opening credits of the next show on and then once the credits are over, go to ad break where it'll start all over again.

And we thought we had it bad.

Every so often good people do bad films. :|

As for product placement, the same happened (although not as bad) in iRobot... so much so in fact that I actually own a pair of Converse All Stars now. Same happens with loads of other films, but none so much as actually making me buy the damn things (yes, I was suckered in). I seem to remember the game Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory having a thing with Airwaves Gum...


Now, On the topic of book to film projects, I was disappointed with the made-for-TV Hogfather (Pratchett). In my opinion, Night Watch would make an epic film; much more potential than Hogfather. As is the way with Thud! in my opinion.

Agreed, Hogfather only worked for people who'd at least read the book and even then, it was fairly poorly executed. Night Watch, like Thud, I don't think would work that well, both excellent books, but Thud in particular came under scrutiny because to fully enjoy the book, you'd need to know about the past of at least the 4 main characters out of Guards! Guards! (not so much Carrot in Night Watch). I figure Mort would work well, but the only problem there's been so far with the screen adaptions is that no ones yet been able to capture Pratchett's humour on screen properly. Hogfather in particular took a very childish view of the humour which annoyed me, and Death wasn't done as well as he could be (please bring back Christopher Lee for Death, he did him wonderuflly in Weird Sisters and Soul Music). If they can do that, they've got it made.

In my experience 24 works in sort of four-episode cycles - for three episodes a plot runs along and ends on major cliffhangers making you pull your hair out, but by the fourth episode it kind of resolves and something new starts up which allows you to get away before you get sucked in again.

In all fairness, I can sit through an entire season of anything (as long as it's good, mind) without getting bored. I went through 2 seasons of House in a weekend, I can do about 3 of Family Guy in one sitting and all of Futurama.

The thing with the Harry Potter series is that they would make seven excellent mini-series of about ten or twelve hour-long episodes each (the same goes for Lord of the Rings, really.) This would be far too expensive for anyone to really do of course, and as it would make much less money than a single movie it's bad business too.

I'm sure they can fit quite a lot of what happens in the novel into the movie without having to cut entire storylines (like the 'SPEW' thing in Goblet) just by converting three separate scenes/conversations into one.

I also had the same idea with the mini-series, this way you can deal with individual storylines per episode and a year per season. As for the cost thing though, considering the budgets of a lot of TV shows these days it wouldn't be too bad. Simply put, as long as it's picked up after it's first season, it shoudln't do too badly. There are loads of long running effects ridden TV shows out there.

I don't think SPEW was needed in Goblet of Fire, it would have slowed things down tremendously. As for not much happening in OotP, granted, there aren't a lot of events, but I think there are a lot of emotional cues, especially for Harry that need to be put down and the story is quite rich. Myself and a group of people on another board did actually attempt to adapt this and the Half Blood Prince to screen (us all being major fans of screenwriting) and found that whilst you're right, larger book, not as much story, there was still a lot we had to try and get into 2 hours.

And I read that Kreacher had to be in the movie, because he still has some kind of important role in the last book. I can't remember where I saw that though so take it with a pinch of salt.

SeaTurtle already linked to that a few posts back, yes it's true. The thing is, whilst I have nothing much against Kreacher being in the movie (in fact it's just easier to have him in anyway from a plot point of view) I don't like the reasoning given here. Whether they'd have had difficulty introducing him in the seventh movie or not is irrelevent, you can't include scenes in a movie purely for the purposes of a movie that will, in all likelyhood come out about four years in the future, by then most of your audience have forgotten about it (movies like the LOTR or POTC don't fit into this because the sequels came out only a year after each other with the exception of the first POTC which was meant to be a standalone movie anyway, and even still, LOTR made a few small mistakes in that area... not as much in the last POTC, but it had it's reasons and they're not good ones).

Kreacher works because he actually has a purpose in this film (Chekovs gun will be mounted on the wall in the first act and fired in the third, if you don't know what Chekovs gun is, look it up), but if he didn't (like the Howler) he shouldn't have been included.

Man, anyone who gave up on Lost after that admittedly slow second season is too flippant. The third series - especially the final ten episodes or so - was some of the best Lost since it began, and it's certainly heading in an interesting direction. Now they've plotted out exactly how many more seasons/episodes there are going to be (three seasons, sixteen episodes each) they can really start answering some of the big mysteries. It should be great!

I just couldn't handle the gradual downplay of realism and the obvious fact that the writers either hadn't come up with an ending or were still tinkering with ideas, the story got progressively more far fetched as new exciting twists and turns were being added and played around with. They should have quit while they were ahead.

Joshi, were the adverts in the States like that on all channels? I don't know how they could cope with that, it's bloody rude. I have to say that I too bought a pair of black Converse All Stars trainers after watching iRobot, although to be fair it was probably the work of other films too; In my experience, Converse All Stars are easily the most advertised shoe in films. I still love them, though. And how could they fit chewing gum into a game about being a secret agent? There is such a thing as going too far and making your film/game look cheap.
Having said that, I can't help but watch films with a lot of product placement in them and noticing a more true-to-life feeling, making me feel more at home. I know this is what they want. It's working. I don't care.

Edit:
Oh, and while we're on the subject, does anyone know whether product placement can exist in song form? I remember watching a film (although I can't remember which one) with that annoying Pizza Hut song in it.

Um....first time was at the book signing where i said he had an interesting watch. Was about the size of a sundial and had more gadgets than Q and Batmans utility belt put together. He replied "alot of deep sthea divfers haff them"
being the old guy he is i wondered why he had one and asked. Apparently i was taking the "pith".

Second encounter - he had a gaggle of bearded geeks and smitten female fans with too many bangles on clustered around him. He was gloating that "in the offith we listhen to the thong (I love that he said this) FISTHCE HEADS (Fish heads)." Apparently by Reel big fish.
Me being a panikity sod corrected him saying it was Barnes n Barnes. He also took offence to this and told me i was wrong repeatedly (much to my amusement) so i emailed proof to his agent.

Lastly at the last con i went to i was a crew member filming the convention DVD and needed him in the hall quickly, as 200 people had been waiting 15mins for his arrival. As he presumably didnt like me he then proceeded to take a further 10 minutes adjusting his ****ing hat!! Whilst i waited at the door.

1) Yes, almost all channels, I guess Americans are just used to it.
2) True, but iRobot had the most blatant advertising of it ("What are those things on your feet?" "Converse All Stars, vintage 2005, you know you want em.") May as well have just been an advert. But yes, I also love em, even though they take about 5 minutes to put them on and take them off.
3)The Cutscenes featured them, the first instance of them I can remember is a radio report of something and the camera is focused on the radio where, sitting in front of it, in plain sight and focus is... a pack of Airwaves. Another instance is during the Hong Kong/New York blackout, we see the City go dark together with a giant blimp advertising... what was it again.. oh yes, Airwaves gum. Which leads me to ask exactly why a bilmp would go dark during a blackout.

Having said that, I can't help but watch films with a lot of product placement in them and noticing a more true-to-life feeling, making me feel more at home. I know this is what they want. It's working. I don't care.
As long as it doesn't go too far. Back to the Future 2 had a lot of it, but that just enriched the feeling of the future (I'm still waiting for those awesome looking Pepsi bottles)

Well I suppose any advertising jingle, those are still quite huge in the states, I wouldn't be surprised if they were found in movies.

I just couldn't handle the gradual downplay of realism and the obvious fact that the writers either hadn't come up with an ending or were still tinkering with ideas, the story got progressively more far fetched as new exciting twists and turns were being added and played around with. They should have quit while they were ahead.
They have come up with an ending - it's just that in the second season, they didn't know if they were going to last for another two seasons or another ten. They couldn't exactly reveal all their answers and then find out they'd been re-commissioned, could they? So they had to drag it out a bit instead of getting on with it, like in season three.

And that bugs me. I liked it when they were in a slightly plausible scenario; I haven't watched much of the second season and I haven't watched any of the third season, but if I did, I think it would ruin my experience watching the first one. It's not you, Lost.. it's me.

On the topic of "Let's ressurect," how about something ever so slightly Monkey Islandesque?

Unless we're talking about Game Over, that show tanked. (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0397149/)

Joshi

Very true (actually the one show I thought about when writing that comment as it did tank), created by the same people who created Futurama, so you'd think it'd have been better.

I actually remember two Futurama commentaries that predicted that show, one for the anthology of interest where Fry wished his life was more like a video game and in the commentary David Cohen said he wanted to do a TV show like that, and then the one with the Lucy Lui bot where he said Lucy Lui enjoyed it so much she said she wouldn't mind doing an animation series.

Shame it all fell apart, it was a good concept, just poorly executed.

Fealiks
07-29-2007, 04:41 PM
I've never heard of Ventrure Bros, Patrick Warburton or Game Over. Futurama was pretty good when they were still releasing episodes, but after watching it so much over the years on Sky One (a TV channel in the UK, for anyone who isn't from the UK (the majority of Harbour frequents seem to be from the UK)) there are hardly any jokes which I still find amusing. The 13 new episodes-in-the making should be quite refreshing (if that is still happening..?)
My favourite cartoon is easily South Park which is why I am genuinely really sad that Matt and Trey will probably only do another 10 or so episodes :(

Warburton mainly does voices, but he also does some real life acting as well. You'll probably recognize his voice as Joe Swanson from Family Guy, or Kronk from the Emporers New Groove.

Don't throw have a paddy, but what about Lee Evans?
(At least I didn't say Peter Kay)

Anyway, I heard about Ricky Gervais's new tour, I wanna see that. Animals and Politics were brilliant and it shocked me that he had never done stand up before.

Joshi
08-12-2007, 05:57 PM
Lee Evans is alright, but despite stand up being his job, I always get the feeling he's really uncomfortable on stage. He does some amazing jokes and great routines, but he just always seems really nervous and it usually takes him a while to get into it and become more relaxed.

That said, he has grown in years, his later stuff has been amazing.

Ricky Gervais is funny, yes, and I do enjoy watching his stand up, but really, if you listen to his radio show you get the same thing and neither are on par with any of the great stand up performers.

Peter kay can be funny when he's not stealing other peoples jokes or falling back on tired old routines (Garlic Bread has gotten a little old now).

Fealiks
08-14-2007, 11:00 AM
Peter Kay is really average, though. The main reason for his popularity is his accent.
