carne asana (clouds), Monday, 4 May 2015 15:56 (five years ago) link

a few things:

1) I completely....completely forgot that McG was talking about a 'surreal' Terminator film in the early going until I re-read this thread. And I even remember the early trailers bearing that out. Then the film comes out and there's NONE of that at all, and it's just an action film with straightforward narrative and shots. What happened here? Did McG abandon the surrealist approach midway through? Does he not know what "surreal" means? idgi

2) Rewatched the first Terminator flick and although I've always loved it, the thing I appreciate the most is how it manages to be epic in scope w/out being epic in length. I've always enjoyed car chases in 60s-80s films more than today's because they overengineer them, but the car chases in this film are fantastic in their unhinged nature. I loved the chases in T2 as well, but they had a feeling of being more choreographed (a la Die Hard choreography w/ vehicles), which, while it was cool and all, paled in comparison to the off the wall recklessness of the chases in the original.

What was also cool is how it was believable in context. Reece has driven cars before, obviously, but only in battle. He's only used to driving recklessly, presumably he wouldn't even know what the traffic signals meant. and he grabs for his shotgun when he gets out of the car to face the cops not as a suicide mission but because he has no clue how the police operate and he's so battle tested, it's reflexive!

3) Unless I missed it, the term "Skynet" does not actually appear at all in the original Terminator. It's weird as I always remembered it being mentioned in Reece's monologue, but he only describes it in a roundabout way as being a project for NORAD.

4) The first Terminator was the best sheerly because it was the only film of the tetralogy not to have cyborgs exceeding their scope. T2 had Arnie acting like a curious robot trying to be human, which aggravated the shit out of me (oh yay, family friendly Terminator), whereas T3, while Arnie's robot was more grounded (except for the cringe-inducing humor and the psychoanalytic bullshit), you had the damn Loken-bot orgasming at John Connor's DNA, and having a look of fear upon her termination. bulllshiiiiit.

5) MVP for the first Terminator really goes to Arnold's facial expressions. Dude was never a great actor, but his face work in this film is actually pretty amazing - never over the top, always believable in the context of a cyborg attempting to assimilate into a society it's never seen before. the way his eyes bug out when he's processing something always wigged me out as a kid.

6) in a way, the later Terminator films kind of stretched the suspension of disbelief to the breaking point with the extra-sophisticated newer model Terminators. I get that they did this because hey, we have this big special effects budget now, let's Manhattan Project flex our muscles to the world, but i nthe context of the first film, you found it somewhat believable that humans could mount a resistance to the machines. The T-101, while difficult to destroy, was destroyed in the sense you'd expect - organically, through much wear and tear. It wasn't invincible, it was merely difficult to destroy given its extra-sensory abilities, and powerful chassis. In the future, against plasma weapons, I could see humans picking them off.

The T-1000 and the T-X, though, with their liquid metal bullshit? How the hell would the humans of the future stood a chance against an army of them? They could imitate more than voices, they could outright imitate other people!! In a way, it bugged me because my strategic brain enjoyed thinking of ways Hamilton and Biehn could off the T-101 in the original, and comparing it to how they actually managed to...whereas in the 2nd and 3rd, I was kinda like "idk what teh rules even are, how the hell WOULD you destroy one of these?"

I hope the additional films never get made.

Inspector George Gently (titled George Gently for the pilot and first series) is a British television series produced by Company Pictures for BBC One, set in the 1960s and based on some of the 46 Inspector Gently novels written by Alan Hunter. The series features Martin Shaw as the eponymous Inspector (later Chief Inspector), Lee Ingleby as Detective Sergeant (later Detective Inspector) John Bacchus, and Simon Hubbard and Lisa McGrillis in supporting roles as police officers. The series moved the setting of the stories to North East England, centering on Tyne and Wear, Northumberland and County Durham as opposed to the Norfolk portrayed in the books. As the series begins, the death penalty is still in effect in Britain and is used as a plot feature in some early episodes; the penalty was abolished in 1964, a change noted in the series. The earliest episodes are set in 1964 and the series progresses in approximately real time, with the closing scenes of series 7 taking place on 1 January 1970.

Production history

In January 2010 it was announced that the BBC had secured funding from the North East Content Fund to produce further episodes of the detective drama. Series 4 was filmed from early to mid-2011 and shown that autumn. On 26 March 2012 the BBC announced that four new feature-length episodes were being produced to air later the same year.[1] Series 5 ended on a dramatic cliffhanger, with the fate of both leading characters uncertain. However, in September 2012, the lead writer confirmed that a sixth series consisting of four episodes had been commissioned.[2] This sixth series aired from 6 February to 27 February 2014 on BBC1. A seventh series containing four episodes has been commissioned by the BBC and has aired on the same channel beginning 29 April 2015.[3]

The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry indulged in a spot of brotherly rivalry over who was handier at DIY in a televised project to turn a derelict Manchester street into homes for ex-service personnel.

The pair donned their personalised hard hats and steel-toe boots, rolled up their sleeves and got stuck in after William declared it was “game on”.

expression "get stuck in" new to me

drash, Wednesday, 23 September 2015 18:39 (four years ago) link

the sort of phrase an aggressively 'commonsensical' middle class person or pretentiously unpretentious aristocrat would say when they find themselves doing (or more likely exhorting others) some banal task

nakhchivan, Wednesday, 23 September 2015 18:45 (four years ago) link

I think it was very tastefully done. The overall look does not scream cartoon. The men's outfits are great, bridesmaid dresses cute, and bride beautiful. Just enough minion but not to much. Love the creativity and overall thought. Glad you had super fun and lots of love throughout your marriage.
