Q: Is lens flare shot organically, or added in post-production?

Harper - Reinstate MonicaThe Star Trek series and movies really love their lens flare. Does the organic picture actually taken by the camera have this lens flare in it? Or is it added to the image in post-production? Are there rolls of film/RAW files that don't have it, that would allow a "Director's (well not JJ ...

Q: Is it all meta in Twin Peaks?

ksadjadRecently a video in Youtube is circulating around about Twin Peaks. I mean this, the general idea behind it is something like this. Lynch made the series as a reaction to rapid growth of "consumable tv violence" and he goes on and test his theory on some plot lines of the original tv series, the...

That was a nice game indeed. The level design was a bit repetetive, but the story and atmosphere were neat.
It suffers from the bullshit release policy since Microsoft wanted to make it the X-Box flagship. Had they properly released it for PC at the time it was originally planned, it would have been a lot more ground-breaking, because vehicles in FPS would have been da next big thing.
Also the only Halo I ever played...because console.

@NapoleonWilson you're back! ... and gone.
did you also read its wikipedia, I read the same thing about level design there.
Why the "was".. ? I am playing it now, properly. Though played on an XP in 2011, but then it got virus.
I don't know much about why the fuss over console, X-Box and PC.
Also the only Halo I'd ever play...because Mac.
5:39 PM
@ankii No. But it was a general impression I had.
I think it was also a common criticism I read in the magazines back then.
I still remember the whole library thing, which was an immense drag.
It might all have been better had they released it 2 years earlier as planned.
A nice comparison was Unreal 2 at the time. The story was largely meh and it didn't have vehicles either, but the levels were a lot more beautiful and varied, at least as I remember it.
@ankii Because I played it ages ago. ;-)
Also, I recently watched a let's play of some kind of re-released beautified new version, so it can look quite nice still. But the original really didn't age well.
I'm done for now. ;-)
@NapoleonWilson that's where wikipedia picks it up
> I played it ages ago
meh, Casino Royale.
wait no.. the other one,
~1984 movie
@ankii It was a really big hyped thing back then, especially for having vehicles in an FPS. Then Microsoft baught the developer and made it X-Box only, with the PC coming 2 years later, at which point noone really cared that much anymore.
it is better on PC, than on console. Even though I've never touched console ever.
that's what I read, on steam.
5:49 PM
@ankii Well, duh! ;-)
It's a shooter. You don't play FPS without a friggin' mouse, even in the 21st century.
Ah, I meant pulp fiction above. And 1994.
to make a case for gold olds.
I still don't get the conneection. ;-)
@NapoleonWilson are you being sarcastic here ?
@ankii No, not at all.
(At least not in a "meaning the opposite" sense.)
@NapoleonWilson you can see a movie even if it is from a diff generation, if it's good.
5:53 PM
@ankii Oh, of course.
thus the game,
I wasn't implying it was any less worth because it was old (not that 2003 is old anyway).
I am not an avid player to compare controller, and mouse/keyboards.
Just that I loved it back then, and recently got success in installing it on my Mac.
I'd love if I can find Road Rash too.
vacations right on time.

Q: 1940s movie, about a vagrant (?)

user89108Movie I saw on tv as a kid in 1968; wasn't paying much attention, just recall 2 bits of it. It seemed very old, maybe 1940s. 1. This old guy, a vagrant called "Mr Smith" gets a job as a soda jerk. On his 1st try at making a drink, he sprays himself with soda, and calls it a "[something] Surpr...

I can understand why he did because of having friends like Begbie (who he realized that he just coduldnt excuse him f...

@AnkitSharma I can't help but feel your urge to draw arguments from conclusions
I haven't been able to watch the last few good movies yet.
"uffff", as @Ankit would point out
Haven't seen Once Upon a Tarantino Dreamland, MorallyVagueFellas and Jester
Something about those names doesn't feel right
