  2. F 13 : The Origins of Evil screenplay

    ...anyway, feel free to make a fan film (which is not the same thing as an independent film). But you won't be submitting an unsolicited idea. His lawyers wouldn't allow him to read it. And if/when they ever make another sequel, they will hire a known name to pen the script. It's just how the town works.

    That's not how the industry works.
  4. Religious Study Group

    Exactly. It's too reductive to be an actual pragmatic model for a major life decision, simply because life is not a binary probability chart. It dismisses the idea that either choice hosts a wide variety of potential consequences, not merely the ones stated in the original argument. (As you pointed out, it's a bifurcation fallacy.)
  5. Religious Study Group

    As a mathematical model, it seems sound, but in the end it's a false analogy (in that it cannot be compared to such a simplistic mathematical model). One only has to imagine the thought experiment of a Muslim and a Christian in a room together, each trying to convince the other to convert faiths by using the same identical argument, and you quickly realize the nuances.
  6. I recently (like within weeks) put together an 80s playlist on my iPhone and have most of these gems, so this thread makes me happy.
  7. Less WEAPONS???

    Always hated how many weapons there are/were. Felt superfluous and neutered tactical or strategic thinking by making weapons always readily available.
  8. Very excited they didn't elect to omit Roy entirely. One step closer to the ultimate F13 experience (Mrs. Voorhees, where are you....).
  9. Net neutrality gone, online gaming hurt?

    It's just going to be weird that everyone will experience a different Internet with different access to different websites and at different speeds. And it's true that maybe this will allow some of the big players to move into regions currently monopolized by their big-name competitor. For example, if AT&T denies access to Netflix for its consumers, or charges a higher fee (since they want to encourage their free DirecTV service instead), then maybe Comcast will come in to the area and serve the people who want Netflix, since they have a deal with Netflix. Oh, but now your access to TMobile's websites are throttled heavily (or denied entirely), because Comcast has a deal with Verizon. And while Facebook is free to join, you can bet there will be some sort of package to be able to access the site from everyone. Same with YouTube. "You want to be able to log on to Facebook? No problem! Buy your Social Media package for only $4.99 a month!" And then, to your point, there will be competition, as other companies might be like, "Get Facebook, Twitter, and Snapchat for only $4.99 a month!" Or specials, "No charge for the first 30 days!" Etc. And then on top of that, they'll charge a lot more for fast lanes. But at the end of the day, everyone's Internet is going to be different. It's going to depend on who you choose as your provider, and which plans you get. But investors will definitely start pumping money into all these companies, because they're all about to make a fortune.
  10. Justice League is bombing

    Final tally: A 95-million-dollar loss for WB. It's officially a bomb, and the lowest DECU film to date. This article (www.businessinsider.com/how-much-warner-bros-could-lose-on-justice-league-50-to-100-million-2017-11) crunches the numbers, and mentions merchandising at the end. I work in the branded licensing business, and one of my coworkers used to work at WB for their licensed goods, and even if licensing did well, it has no bearing on the film (positive or negative) because those are completely different revenue streams and completely different budgets. (Though I do know that the people working at WB licensing WANT more DECU films, because it's good for THEIR business--but not vice versa.) But will DECU soldier on? No doubt.
  11. Paranoid

    That would be unfortunate. Especially since we saw that they've made the mask in the Virtual Cabin.

    It's pretty astounding, but not at all unpredicted that our policies and culture would take this shift after last year's election. Rise of the alt-right. The abandonment of regulated international trade agreements. Degradation of China relations. A tax reform that will add trillions to debt while absolutely devastating people who live paycheck to paycheck (a majority of Americans), while simultaneously greatly benefiting corporations. Huge slashes to public schools, with large tax breaks, funding, and incentives for private (aka, affluent, for-the-rich-only) schools. Rescinding National Parks' statuses so they can be exploited for natural resources. Adding fuel to the Middle East crisis and going against the will of the United Nations and the entire international community. Escalating tensions with North Korea. Fostering a myopic and xenophobic worldview through the denial of VISAs and imposing of travel bans. The encouragement of Islamaphobia and enthusiastically endorsing hate propaganda on Twitter. And now a corporate-run Internet that will make EA's microtransactions feel like a petty tax by comparison. And that's just Year One.

    Yeah, and he seemed all in at first, with the offer to pen and direct THE BATMAN, but that went out the window in a hurry.

    A re-org in the works over on the Warner Lot. http://variety.com/2017/film/news/dc-films-justice-league-1202632214/
  15. (︺︹︺) EA - helping gaming through greed

    I was okay with it too, but a lot of people hated it because the newer maps had fewer players. Like the ROGUE ONE map, Scarif, only had 10 vs. 10 because not enough people purchased it to consistently fill lobbies. But with that being said, there's no reason they can't do both. Release a primary new map for free, and specialty/alternate maps for a price.
