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.

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

"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— Tim Robey (@trim_obey) July 7, 2019

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.

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?
