DailyDirt: Movie Magic For Everyone

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Making significant changes to digital images with software is getting more impressive all the time. As we've seen before, Photoshopping isn't just sticking to still-life, either. It won't be long before feature-length movies can be made with just some scraps of existing video clips (which has been done before) -- but it could be a bit better than What's Up, Tiger Lily? Or not. After you've finished checking out those links, take 10% off any $50+ order from our Daily Deals using the promo code DAILYDIRT.

    To fix the prequels you would have to rewrite the second and third to what they would have been if Lucas didn't chicken out and stick in the count.

      Actually, there's already a 'fixed' version of the prequels. If you can find them, the Magnolia Fan Edits make the prequels worth watching. A few cuts, some sub-titles, and a little editing makes the story lines coherent and much more dramatic than the official versions.

      Re:

      No, the Count was essential. Otherwise who would have been the dark apprentice? Certainly not JarJar Binks, who certainly was not essential to either movie. And except for the battle scene wasn't essential for the first movie.

    Neo's on Line 1

    It may get more difficult to determine what's real on TV, . .


    Just take the red pill already. You're so much better off right now if you simply assume every last bit is make-believe.

      easy,

      if it has been authorized to be released to the sheeple via tv then it is propaganda

      *truth can be used as propaganda, too
      specially with clever timing, and croping

      I remember when Tron (the original) came out I read an article where they predicted that also.

      We've come a long way since then.

    Disney only put the video out so they can claim copyright and patent rights, Disney's one and only driving force.
