About that Jurassic World thing...

Unread postby pentium » Sun Nov 23, 2014 9:42 am

So a preview for a movie trailer (this is already raising flags for me) came out. It's about 10 seconds long. Most of the scenes were okay, then there's THIS.

Yeah, sure, MovieOS is the future and everything has to feel high-tech and stuff but COME ON. At least show a little realism. Even the old one looks a bit more realistic than monkeys using touchscreens in a blue themed.....eugh.

Anyways, that's my rant for the year. Back to you hamei. ;)

Monkeys using touchscreens. You mean these guys?

Touch screens and MovieOS are the real world now, Pentium :-)

Please, don't say such terrible things in front of my innocent 90's ears.

That, Sir, is not a movie. That is the Fox News news floor. All the fair and balanced stories originate from those giant touch screens.

Oh, I try to avoid the news. It's too depressing. Besides, I don't have any TV service (cable, satellite, antenna, etc).

Normally, I only get to spend a few hours a week watching TV (either streaming through tunnelr, bittorrent+rss, netflix, etc) and that's if I'm lucky. I'm not going to waste my TV time on news.

We're 100% Netflix and Amazon video now, with the odd torrent. We do have cable TV, but never watch it for the reasons you cited; depressing and idiotic.

I used to be a news junkie but have done a reasonable job of de-linking myself to quite a degree from the happenings in the world. I am getting to the age where I realize I cannot change anything outside of my immediate sphere of influence (if there!) And while I am aware of the suffering in the world, the constant assault of negativity, paid-for by insurance and drug ads, serves only to cause despair. Not worth it.

Part of me was hoping there would be a scene in the new movie where they go to the original building and have the original computers, including a big Crimson, etc. Pretty unlikely though.

The trailer is out.

It does respect the books a fair amount apparently but the plot feels kind of flimsy.

Wait, how and the heck does this respect the books? Having read all of them I can tell you that nothing in that movie seems legit from a canon point of view.

Regardless I will see it, just for dinosaurs eating humans. 8-)

One of the requirements for movieOS is of course a monochromatic screen...

Fyi: Kvaser Canking with Woodward's Mototune in background, in vmware fusion with f.lux running for good measure. I actually use this setup regularly especially now that the daylight hours are scarce, it matches our dashboard lighting at night.

A LOT of people ask what program is that, what kind of computer is that, etc, etc when they see f.lux working in darkroom mode..

Reminds me of Temple OS.

I won't post the animated screenshots here because they're a couple of MB each, but you've got to see this.
