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.

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.

I am not sure what was more disappointing - the fact that the Bakshi version ended halfway , or that years later Rankin Bass steaming shit pile was the weak attempt to finish it.

This is the opening scene of Bakshi version if you haven't seen it. Looks like can watch most of the movie split into smaller clips. While it has a lot of drawbacks, there are some good elements to it IMO.

I agree that not filming both halves of the Dune movie at the same time seems like a terrible logistical mistake.

I wonder if it was a deliberate choice to allow Chalomet to age between films? Sorta like Tom Hanks taking a break when filming Castaway in order to lose 50 pounds and grow a beard. It just seems like Villaneuve is a smarter director than that (not to mention the studio not wanting to leave things to chance).
