Well... that was unexpected... Just started watching a movie that I worked on the casting for... and the main character is an actor I know really well... and the opening montage includes him (a portly guy in his late 40s) pretty much naked, having sexytime.

Q: Alien invasion movie where the protagonist is invisible to the aliens

user1803551Details of what I remember, some of it could be off: I saw this movie on TV at around 2009. It's a horror-ish small-scale-alien-invasion movie. I believe abduction was involved (for once they weren't trying to blow up national monuments). It is not an action movie. It's not a found footage film...

Q: Identify this older anime about black-clad children from a dark, suspenseful scene

spikedboardanimeI watched this anime on German TV in the 1990s. I think it was older, from the 70s or 80s, because the animation style was similar to anime from that time period. It looked similar to Cat's Eye and especially to Attack No. 1. Maybe it was produced by the same studio. The main characters were two...

Q: Why Chief elder not allowing people to even see the colors in "The Giver"?

Roshan TharunIn The Giver (2014), It is world-building where people lack feelings etc, Why Chief elder not allowing people to even see the colors in "The Giver" ? Actually people taking injection at every morning.

 
@DrRDizzle Bahuuballi is not really bollywood :P
 
10:57 AM
That just proves how little I know about Bollywood lol

@FranciscoV. hello o/
 
Baahubali is originally made in telugu. But all claim it as an Indian Film.
 
@SreeCharan It was made in tamil and telgu simultaneously and dubbed in Hindi and malyalam
So calling it Indian film seems better
 
I don't think I've ever seen an Indian film. I've seen British films and Irish films and French films and Korean films and Japanese films and Chinese films and Hong Kong films and Australian films and Swedish films and Brazillian films and Mexican films, but never Indian films.
 
@DrRDizzle that's disappointing
 
A J
11:11 AM
yes pretty much
 
Obviously, I've also seen American films lol
 
I have seen american, Japaneses, french, South African, Chinese, British, Korean , Brazilian, Mexican, Argentine and ofcourse Indian
 
A J
I have seen american, Japaneses,Chinese, British, Korean, spanish, and of course Indian.
 
I think Canadian too but not sure
Can I count The Others as spanish?
 
A J
dunno
 
11:20 AM
I have Russian film in my pending list too
 
@AJ No British?
Oh wait lol, you did say British
 
But to be frank I have no British film in my good list
 
@AnkitSharma :O
 
A J
James Bond and HP
@DrRDizzle Is Johny English also British?
 
@DrRDizzle In my defense, I can say I watch way less British films due to accents
 
11:23 AM
Some of the best films ever made are British films.
 
@AJ I don't like HP much and not into spy-fi
@DrRDizzle name??
 
I watch english movies. Dunno if they are canadian, british, American. Only language is what I see.
 
And I say that as a film fan, not as a British person.
 
@SreeCharan lol
 
@AnkitSharma So, so many dude. Far too many to actually name. Hell, some of the best directors are British.
 
A J
11:25 AM
@DrRDizzle Like Sam Mendes?
 
Next message from @DrRDizzle: "Man, Some of the best singers are British." He says it is as a film fan. Not as a British person. :P
 
Alfred Hitchcock, Ridley Scott, Christopher Nolan etc
 
Edgar Wright, Matthew Vaughn, Danny Boyle, Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, Christopher Nolan, Ridley Scott, Guy Ritchie, Steve McQueen, Terry Gilliam, Ben Wheatley, Gareth Evans...
Hell, Charlie Chaplin himself was British.
 
Nolan is half american
 
@SreeCharan To be fair, some of the best rock bands that have ever rocked are British.
 
11:28 AM
@DrRDizzle bleh
 
See ^^ I said so.
 
@DrRDizzle Is it not Stanley Kubrick american?
 
@AnkitSharma Original one is in Telugu. Songs and dialogues are written by tamil writers. But original one is in telugu. But I think it is an Indian film whose original is telugu.
 
@SreeCharan original one was made Tamil and Telugu simultaneously
@DrRDizzle and Danny Boyle is good but not that good
 
@AnkitSharma Don't bleh me. The Beatles, Queen, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, Muse, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, Fleetwood Mac, Motorhead, AC/DC...
 
11:33 AM
@DrRDizzle I bleh rock genre, so not interested :P
 
@AnkitSharma Hmmmm, TIL.
 
@DrRDizzle wikipeida say Steve McQueen is american actor
 
@AnkitSharma The actor is. The director isn't.
 
@DrRDizzle ohhh
 
Steven Rodney "Steve" McQueen CBE (born 9 October 1969) is an English film director, producer, screenwriter, and video artist. For his 2013 film, 12 Years a Slave, a historical drama adaptation of an 1853 slave narrative memoir, he won an Academy Award, BAFTA Award for Best Film, and Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture – Drama, as a producer, and he also received the award for Best Director from the New York Film Critics Circle. McQueen is the first black filmmaker to win an Academy Award for Best Picture. McQueen is known for his collaborations with actor Michael Fassbender, who has starred...
 
11:35 AM
Terry Gilliam is not fully british either
Never heard about Ben Wheatley and Gareth Evans is welish and not that big name either
 
Terry Gilliam was a Python. That makes him the most British.
 
@DrRDizzle ohhh
@DrRDizzle bleh whatever
 
@AnkitSharma Wales is part of Britain. Ben Wheatley directed High Rise and Free Fire and Sightseers and Kill List.
 
@DrRDizzle yeah I know it's part of UK but I refer British to England only
 
@AnkitSharma Also, some not being a big name doesn't mean that they aren't great. He's one of, maybe even the, best action director working today.
 
11:39 AM
@DrRDizzle then you can list 100 more director who made 2-3 good film according to you, I though you was listing top ones only
 
@AnkitSharma Well, you're wrong. Great Britain is England, Wales and Scotland.
 
And I count Nolan American, he came out of american womb
 
@AnkitSharma But he was born in London lol
 
@DrRDizzle His mom is american and he make american films, how much more american he can get
 
@AnkitSharma Considering that he has dual nationality and was born in London, he could be a lot more American.
He's even married to a Brit.
 
11:42 AM
@DrRDizzle then I will count his children 3/4 british
 
@AnkitSharma lol
 
But he is 1/2 British
 
Yes, but I'm still counting him as British for this. I would also class him as one of the best American directors, if that helps.
 
It's too easy for me, I am born in India to Indian parents and grand parents and grand grand parents and I don't have passport :p
 
A J
@AnkitSharma lol
 
11:45 AM
@DrRDizzle If you count nolan as one of the best director then I can forgive half of your sins
 
@AnkitSharma Well he is one of the best directors working today, so....

Evening @iandotkelly
 
@AJ .. looking at the history, when the post is deleted, the "Community" user clears the comment flags. I presume this is essentially the same as the 'dismiss' result.
Morning
:)
So if a post itself has flags on it - those are accepted as helpful. Comment flags are dismissed at the same time.
 
A J
@iandotkelly by dismissal you mean decline?
 
Comment flags have 2 results presented to reviewers ..... delete / dismiss

12:55 PM
@iandotkelly The one my flag was declined for.
 
The comment wasn't deleted - the entire post was deleted
And the system clears any outstanding flags so (presumably) they don't appear in review queues
The developers seem to have chosen to err on the side of declining/dismissing the flags

You can see that who/how it was deleted.

Is some part of movie in Giver B/W?
 
3:27 PM
@SreeCharan most of it is
for story reasons
 
@DForck42 You mean grey scale?
 
@SreeCharan did you mean B/W as in black and white?
same name for grey scale as far as I am aware
 
I meant the picture in the frame turns totally b/w or is it only people who can't see it?
Inspite of presence of colors @DForck42
 
@SreeCharan I'm not quite sure what you're asking. the movie starts out in black and white, but as the main character progresses, he starts to see more and more things in color. at the end of the movie I believe everything is in color
when the main character sees something in color, we as the audience also see it in color
am I answering your question at all?
 
@DForck42 okay i understand now. Thanks

11:12 PM
@steelersquirrel No.
Someone asking a question about it and it getting votes doesn't make it site policy until it's officially adopted... and, to be honest, I don't think we'll ever "officially" adopt something like that.
Particularly in the case of answer comments... there's no consensus... the question is sitting at 4, -4, the top answer is explaining why someone does it and asking "what should I do"... there's no policy change there.
