The only way to make that more terrifying is to deepfake Carrey's face on to Shelley Duvall too.

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

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.

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

the crossed eyes at the end are pretty creepy

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.

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?

You think I'm joking, but wait until you see the Fight Club one.

"DIOT"?

"Deserves Its Own Thread"

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

Today, quite literally, the twins from THE SHINING (right) told me to buy this ring (left) during a craft fair on Kubrick's estate. I feel like I've completed some kind of boss level pic.twitter.com/Zq6ZMDeZC1

The green bathroom set is great!

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.

two months pass...

lol 12 years ago I called this Kubrick's second worst movie (after Eyes Wide Shut) although after watching most of it over the weekend in a hotel room (lol) I feel a bit more generous towards it.

Which makes uh Full Metal Jacket his second worst movie, I guess? The back half of that is a slog.

Do people just not count Fear and Desire when making statements like that?

in my case yes, it's the only one I've never seen
