Film & TV / Re: Current TV Boxset Addiction

Did you buy it on disc? I've been wondering if Crunchyroll is worth a look, I think its like a Netflix for Anime.

I remember the Patlabor trailers at the beginning of any anime VHS that put out by Manga, I thought those trailers were pretty darn cool. I never got round to watching any though, I might track some down!

I wonder if Ian McKellen will make a cameo now they're best chums! I'd love to see him as a Romulan or Vulcan

The recent Lost in Space, which I presume had a healthy budget, still decided to do its robot mostly as a man in a suit (to its detriment I thought). This should be a clue that fully CG characters are still an expensive proposition for TV.

You may very well be right! I was just saying why I think it's fundamentally cheaper to cgi robots and machines than organic characters and animals. I would hope that the budget at least stretches to flying vehicles and perhaps the occasional low-quality background robot in city scenes though!! I wonder if any of the 3d modellers at Rebellion will find themselves doing some paid overtime to help out?

Star Trek Discovery was on CBS All Access in the US and on Netflix over here so I think they'll do that again hopefully

Ahh, I'm a TNG fan but I've not seen all the Trek films. I'd watch an trippy show about Picard's space alzheimers though!

It all costs, but at the level of adding CGI, robots are at the cheaper end.

E.g. the facial animation can be more basic, or it could even be a puppet/person in a suit.

Yeah I bet animation is easier with a robot, you don't have to think about musculature or nailing human realism as they move, and there'd be much less need for  unnecessary movement compared to an animal like when idling for example. They're also probably quicker to model and get to look right too, often having much more simple geometry compared to organic things, and being made of materials that reflect light in easier-to-reproduce-convincingly fashions

Whaaaaat! Awesome! I wonder if it's a continuation of his time on the Enterprise, or a different genre of show where he's now a civilian. Perhaps a political drama set on the Atlantis project? An odd-couple sitcom about him and his brother trying to save the vineyard maybe

I don't think they *had* to bus everyone at all, I would've very much liked to see Luke playing a bigger part in the new arc.

Ah, if only we could get Patrick Stewart to play the Chief Judge...

Oh man, I LOVE a bit of Patrick Stewart, that'd be amazing.

With Walter I totally agree that he might be too cheesy for a modern Dredd TV show. Perhaps he could have a small cameo though, as I do like him lots. Dredd runs out of ammo and throws him at a perp

Games / Re: Anyone going to play Strange Brigade at launch?
« on: 27 July, 2018, 12:55:08 pm »
I saw an interview around E3 with one of the designers, where he said the game had been designed so it can be played solo.

found it:
"it’s very much a single player game with co-op support."

I will hopefully be playing day one, money allowing!

Whoever that bloke is what made the Jeepers Creepers movies.  After he got out of jail for noncing, Disney waited a whole two years to hire him to make Powder.


Woah, I just looked that up, Victor Salva. He's made 11 films, nine of which were after he was exposed as a paedophile and jailed for molesting kids. What the hell?

Cheers for the info! So it is just a side-effect right? It doesn't serve any function?
