Short Cut to Remote Gaming Forum (29 Aug 2020)

Since remote gaming has now become a significant part of how we play board games, we have added a short cut to this forum in the menu on the left.

× Talk abut Movies & TV here. Just tell us what you have been watching. Have hyper-academic discussions on visual semiotics. Whatever, it's all good.

People's excitement for this trailer has me thinking I should read the first book and remedy that.

Everyone on this site should play the boardgame.

There are many, many things I like about this trailer, so count me among the eager.

However, two things I didn't like:
-Jason Momoa - He's fun and cool and all, but he's always Jason Momoa. I miss the days when he used to act.
-Dark Side of the Moon - I'm so, so tired of slowed down covers of rock songs in trailers.

Villeneuve has been my favorite director for the past few years and I've been smitten with Dune since reading the book and playing the game a couple of years ago. So pumped for this.

The Pink Floyd is pretty incongrouous. Maybe it's because I grew up with it, associate it with different things.

Is there no one left writing music? And at what point does the film industry start pulling its music from a time period other than 1973 to 1978?

The advantage of the older music has been that a wide swath of the audience is expected to recognize it. Music in the 21st century, aside from some very transient top 40 crap, is less of a monoculture and so many listeners are finding their own favorites in small niches.

Its also possible for them to still be working on the films final score and the PF sountrack is just a placeholder.

That rules out 1980?

No, the '80s and even the '90s get some screen time in plenty of movies. Look at Atomic Blonde, or the upcoming Wonder Woman 1984, or various nostalgic movies like Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion. It's just that Napster punched a giant hole in the way the music industry operated in the second half of the 20th century, and now people are more likely to listen to music that a lot of other people aren't hearing.

For an analogy, imagine if there wasn't a dominant tastemaker site like BGG but we were still getting an avalanche of new games every year. Instead of most gamers obsessing over BGG's greatest hits list of Euros plus a few major newer hits each year, we might seem a lot more creativity in new designs than endless waves of deckbuilders and worker placement games right now. It's often hard to sustain a good discussion about a game that isn't a classic or the current hotness, because so few people have played a given game, or played just a couple of games and moved on without reflection.

We used to have a "What MUSIC are you listening to?" thread that was the most crystallized example of people talking past each other that this site has probably ever seen.

I love that thread. It's still around but people rarely post in it anymore. I have listened to a lot of the music there, and really enjoyed some of it. But yeah, talking about music these days is either talking past each other or taking a trip down memory lane. And that, in a nutshell, is why movie music tends to not be modern music.

I've been driving less, so I've been listening to music less, so I've been posting there less. Every now and then a discussion would start or I'd find something interesting that someone posted and I liked.

There the Thanks Yous could mean, "I listened to this whole album on your suggestion and enjoyed it, thanks."

Since the start of 2016, I have had a daily roundtrip commute of at least an hour. I'm lucky that there are two local radio stations that play a very wide range of music, and I rarely hear the same song twice on the college radio station. Even so, I am often digging around in YouTube to find different music. I like to burn mixes and probably have about 50 hours of music in my car right now, but it's always neat to hear what other people love.

I've decided I'm going to ignore this until the 2nd half gets made. Maybe I'll re-read the book.

If it is true that NOTHING has been done on part 2 (principle photography wise at least) then I wouldn't hold my breath. Getting that cast back together is gonna be ROUGH. How/why this wasn't a Kill Bill or LOTR style (endgame as well?) film 'em both together deal is foolish, especially since filming the actors is probably the cheapest part once you have them together on a set compared to all the CGI done in post.

The original movie treatment of LotR is a great example of what can go wrong when you don't do the whole project with the same team. The first half of the trilogy was Lord of the Rings, a 1978 movie with nice (for the time) animation by Ralph Bakshi. The second half was a 1980 made-for-tv movie by Rankin-Bass called The Return of the King. Rankin-Bass is best known for their Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, while Bakshi is best known for either Fritz the Cat or Wizards.
