I saw a Stephen King-approved Carrie TV movie. That was TERRIBLE.

Dan Selzer (Dan Selzer), Thursday, 29 April 2004 04:29 (fifteen years ago) link

can't wait for the "stand by me" mini-series with jonathan lipnicki, jonathan taylor thomas, brian austin green and the guy who played jonathan in buffy!

s1ocki (slutsky), Thursday, 29 April 2004 04:31 (fifteen years ago) link

Watched the last thirty minutes of the Shining miniseries. Yep, now I remember why I hated it in '97.

Eric H. (Eric H.), Thursday, 29 April 2004 04:48 (fifteen years ago) link

I dropped it to watch some Dawson's Creek reruns. Jen was mega-hot the last season.

Stephen King isn't very scary so there

Frank Swedehead, Wednesday, 5 May 2004 20:33 (fifteen years ago) link

Its pretty amazing that although the whole film is very brightly lit, its still creepy as hell. Whats up with that ghost in the wierd bunny outfit!?

-- Ehh, I rewatched this a few nights ago. When Shelley's running through the Overlook at the end of the film there's this sudden snap-zoom and all of a sudden a fat man in a bear-suit giving a bloody blow-job fills the frame. It lasts for about four seconds, and it's creepy as shit. I was with watching this with Jon William in Rochester a few years ago and I was stoned as could be and thought I was hallucinating the scene. No dice, though.

"pet sematary" was a piece of shit too but he loved it because it followed his (admittedly pretty good) novel almost to the letter.

One good scene (the funeral argument) does not a good book make! I found the whole thing boring and stupid.

no one buries pets in a graveyard thats just stupid, mosta the time they are put into stew

i watched the movie and thought it was really bad as i was reading the book i got really scared! its so descriptive ...

CAss (CAss), Wednesday, 5 May 2004 22:06 (fifteen years ago) link

I liked how the book put you in the kid's head more than Kubrick's film, but the end was (in typical King fashion) pretty weak.

miloauckerman (miloauckerman), Wednesday, 5 May 2004 22:10 (fifteen years ago) link

Made it through the first 1:50 before I started nodding off tonight.

Compared to the book, now, the only thing I miss is any sort of balance to Jack - even the minor moments of being a loving/caring human being. Everything else Kubrick changed or eliminated seem right on, though.

Seriously one of the most chilling movies right up through meeting Grady in the ballroom/bathroom - that kills all the momentum and drama (poss. I just know what's going to happen). The disassociation caused by the overacting music and framing create tension even in innocuous scenes, but it doesn't work when Kubrick tries to be more traditional, you just start noticing that Shelley Duvall has huge fucking eyes.

The naked black women in Scatman Crothers' bachelor pad are almost as great as the masked biker men in The Royal Tenenbaums.

miloauckerman (miloauckerman), Sunday, 9 May 2004 08:14 (fifteen years ago) link

Didn't scare me the first time I saw it, but it gets worse and worse on every viewing, and last time I tried (couple of months ago, on a tuesday afternoon) I had to stop halfway through. For me, it's scary cos having somebody be angry with you is scary, and...Jack's angry with me.

And yeah, the aniaml-outfit-fellatio thing is really really freaky. In the book, it turns out the guy he's sucking off is the owner of the hotel. The owner of the hotel is called Horace Derwent. He's got the same (not particularly common) surname as me. So I shat myself when I read that.

"And yeah, the aniaml-outfit-fellatio thing is really really freaky. In the book, it turns out the guy he's sucking off is the owner of the hotel"

yeah, i think it actually works better in the movie because its so inexplicable.

Well, I just disagree. I liked it because it was just a really creepy update of the monkey's paw. the parts with dead children and the nightime journey to the indian burial ground were really effective to me.

ANYWAY, miloauckerman OTM.

Apparently it came from here : http://www.ps260.com/

Also, this made the rounds WAY fast... everyone's seen this today (not on ILX, I mean)

Servers are getting totally slammed now. I just IM'ed a friend about it, and as I was typing to her she said "wow, another friend of mine just emailed me about that now!"

Douglas (Douglas), Thursday, 29 September 2005 20:28 (fourteen years ago) link

Yeah, I got another link to that site just before it first showed up on ilx.

wow, this is really good. the only thing it needs is slightly better production on the voice and a title card listing all the credits

(The Titanic one is okay but the West Side Story one is great.)

Ned Raggett (Ned), Monday, 3 October 2005 01:05 (fourteen years ago) link

the west side story one is pretty good but the others don't match up IMO. (the west side story one suffers from added SFX which i think is a little unfair). & the titanic one doesn't make that much sense when all of the footage it uses is of people running for their lives in the original movie; there's no real difference in meaning.

s1ocki (slutsky), Monday, 3 October 2005 02:52 (fourteen years ago) link

Yeah, but the end results!

Ned Raggett (Ned), Monday, 3 October 2005 03:00 (fourteen years ago) link

I don't think much of the other two, at all, but the shining one is v. v. v. clever

Anyway, it's fucking brilliant. I still almost had a heart attack when he opened the door to 237 though.

Please explain what a deepfake is. I love that clip, but I'm confused as to what's been done.

clemenza, Thursday, 11 July 2019 01:38 (four months ago) link

Using AI to CGI humans, is how I understand it - instead of painstaking work to change faces frame to frame they use machine learning to do it faster and better.

Greta Van Show Feets BB (milo z), Thursday, 11 July 2019 01:42 (four months ago) link

That's the original movie with Jim Carrey's face wrapped around Jack Nicholson's head.

pplains, Thursday, 11 July 2019 01:46 (four months ago) link

the crossed eyes at the end are pretty creepy

calstars, Thursday, 11 July 2019 02:05 (four months ago) link

Thanks--read a little bit online. That clip is...quite amazing.

The Stallone Terminator 2 clip has some transitions where it's clearly still Arnie's face, I couldn't tell if it was done on purpose or a function of the angles/lighting in the bar scene.

Greta Van Show Feets BB (milo z), Thursday, 11 July 2019 02:58 (four months ago) link

You can now just about watch the last act with Ace Ventura as Jack Torrance:

Stuff might DIOT but these deepfakes are wild. It's one thing to add the dead guy back into Fast and Furious or the dead guy back into the new Star Wars movie. You still need some anonymous stand-in to drive the car or whatever.

What about All the Money in the World, replacing Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer? Seems a little less ethical though likely cheaper to downgrade an actor's performance to just being a stand-in. Though is that much different than, say, overdubbing Andie Macdowell's voice in Tarzan the Ape Man with Glenn Close?

The more I watch these, the more I see where they're not so accurate. It's crazy how well they fit into the lighting and shadows, but kinda lose their luster as soon as something partially hides the face, like a chopped-up piece of a door.

idgi why they didn't put his face on the wife and kid also?

"Deserves Its Own Thread"

Acronym's been around for at least 12 hours since I came up with it two posts ago.

Can't help wondering how many innocent people are about to be framed for crimes they didn't commit while we work out the particular bugs of this acid trip technology

That said, I look forward to seeing myself as Spock

The Shining seems like particularly fertile ground for this dumb tech. Would like to see Halloran’s face on the Grady twins, or Ullman’s visage on the old woman in the bathroom.
