Twitter Weekly Updates for 2009-12-28

  • @devincf I have to disagree with your argument that the creature work was on par with AOTC, all of the creatures of Pandora clearly have… #
  • @devincf … traits that lead to a common ancestor. Time was taken by the folks at Weta in designing them from the inside-out. #
  • @devincf While they may be similar to animals on Earth, the actual design work, in linking them together by common traits, shows effort. in reply to devincf #
  • @devincf It shows much more effort than what went into those three beasts shown at the end of Attack of the Clones. in reply to devincf #
  • @devincf It's not as simple as taking an animal that exists, and then trading parts with other animals. in reply to devincf #
  • RT @CriterionCast: [Blog Post] The CriterionCast – Episode 017.6 – Disc 3 – [The 11th Annual Butt Numb-A-Thon] http://bit.ly/8WQcpT #
  • Listen to us geek out with James McCormick about this years Butt-Numb-A-Thon, & discuss some of the films. http://bit.ly/8WQcpT #
  • @devincf probably the same reason that mammals have different characteristics from reptiles, or fish. in reply to devincf #

  • @Rudie_Obias @vactor possibly, we may still be doing family stuff. I only have my iPhone headset with me, so the audio quality may be iffy. in reply to Rudie_Obias #
  • Who would have thought explaining what podcast is to their grandparents would be so hard? #
  • @StarBlush yeah, I tried that, but it still took time for everyone to absorb what that entailed. in reply to StarBlush #
  • It's an interesting feeling, being made aware of what kind of bubble you live in, be it a film or tech geek community, when you visit family #
  • About to head to Ranchos in Ocean Beach for some incredibly delicious Mexican Food. Then maybe to Target for gift card usage. #

  • What is it about the Lloyd Center theatre that always brings out the most annoying movie-goers in town? Seriously, shut the eff up. #
  • @Vactor I would love to join you on your Batman podcast one day. in reply to Vactor #
  • Just back from the Cartopia, to fill us up after seeing Up in the Air. George Clooney could sell ice to eskimos. #
  • It's interesting to think of all of Jason Reitman's primary protagonists, and how similar they are. #
  • Sweet, just got my passes for tomorrows Avatar screening at Bridgeport. Let's hope this txtmovieclub thing is legit. #

  • @rejects Dang, I want to visit the set of Predators. in reply to rejects #
  • So which of the March 2010 Criterion releases are you most excited about? http://bit.ly/7jf0y1 #
  • @thefilmtalk I had a phase in high school where I really got into that movie, and read the book, was just obsessed with most spy stuff. in reply to thefilmtalk #
  • Alright I'm here at Bridgeport, in line, ready for some blue aliens. #
  • Alright! Twitter is back, now I can talk about how much I loved Avatar! #
  • So, here are my thoughts: This movie is a proof of concept that a kick ass Thundercats movie is possible. Witty eh? #
  • Yes, obviously the special effects are worth the price of admission, however high they may be. #
  • No, the dialogue and characters aren't anything to write home about, but they are perfectly adequate. Except of course for unobtanium. #
  • Two worst things in my opinion: 1 Giovanni Ribisi's character, cartoonishly evil. 2 Unobtanium, how can you speak that with a straight face. #
  • So, in conclusion, I am going to see this movie at least two more times in theaters, buy the blu-ray, and marathon the special features. #
  • Oh wait, two favorite parts: 1 The animals, especially their sounds. 2 Seeing all the memorable Weta names in the credits. Gino Acevedo FTW! #
  • @Devindra I'm more excited about watching hours and hours of the making of this movie than watching it in 2d. in reply to Devindra #
  • Also, I want LOTR style commentary on this disc release, 4 commentary tracks! Plus a picture in picture of the pre-rendered stuff. #
  • Seriously, unobtanium? I can't believe that made it to the final draft. #
  • @Devindra they can be blamed for using it, when they could have called it something like pandorium, or pandorite. or anything else in reply to Devindra #
  • @FatboyRoberts it just felt like a big wink at the nerdy audience, in a movie where I didn't want to be winked at. in reply to FatboyRoberts #
  • @FatboyRoberts what are you guys showing tomorrow night? in reply to FatboyRoberts #
  • Oh, my other favorite part: Sully's atrophied human legs. Creepy as hell, I want to see some making of footage of those. #
  • @FatboyRoberts what time are you going to the screening? We have the podcast but I might make a late showing. in reply to FatboyRoberts #
  • @FatboyRoberts that sounds like a manageable screening time to me, I'll definitely try. in reply to FatboyRoberts #
  • So, do movie theaters that show 3D films still hunt for people trying to pirate it? They should just point and laugh. #
  • Oh, I get why they used it, but was the whole twin brother thing really worth the exposition? #
  • For all you Wired subscribers, there is a pretty awesome article on The Asylum in this new issue. #
  • I want to change my Twitter name, but all the variations of my name are taken, any thoughts hivemind? #
  • @Instanthunter dang, that ones taken too! in reply to Instanthunter #
  • @headgeek666 We're chatting about Butt Numb A Thon live right now over at http://criterioncast.com/live if you want to join us. #
  • Still chatting about Butt-Numb-A-Thon, over at http://criterioncast.com/live !! #
  • We're broadcasting live right now! Our episode 18, on Blast of Silence. Over at http://criterioncast.com/live #
  • We're still broadcasting, discussing the new Rashomon print over at http://criterioncast.com/live our Disc 2 of Blast of SIlence. #
  • Thanks to everyone who showed up in the chatroom for the first full length live @CriterionCast episode. It was a lot of fun, we'll do more! #
  • So, Avatar is playing at the Roseway at 10:30 in 3D for $9. I want to see it again, are you going too? #
  • @willschiff I don't think it was a gimmick at all. in reply to willschiff #
  • Oh man, do I stay in, watch Inglourious Basterds on Blu-ray again and upgrade to WordPress 2.9, or see Avatar again. Such choices in life… #
  • So have any of you read / listened to the audio book of the new Michael Crichton Pirate book? Any good? #
  • @FatboyRoberts that sucks dude, we're getting ready to head up to the Roseway, see you there? in reply to FatboyRoberts #
  • Alright Portland, we're at the Roseway for a second viewing of Avatar! Get out here! It's going to be epic. #
  • @KarenABorromeo well, I'm at the theater, for Avatar again. Take that for what you will. in reply to KarenABorromeo #
  • Why yes, the second viewing of Avatar was still flipping amazing. I noticed all kinds of little touches that I want to share with you all. #
  • Did you notice the fingers? The human/avatars have 5 fingers, whereas the Na'vi only have 4 fingers… #
  • Also, look closely at all of the species of creatures, they all clearly have similar features, hinting at common ancestors! #
  • I really hope they produce a sort of "Walking with Dinosaurs" style documentary for the bonus materials for the disc releases. #
  • Also, if you're going to the Roseway Theater, don't sit too far back, you want the screen to fill your entire field of vision… #
  • The more screen fills your field of vision, the more immersed you'll feel. The better the 3d will suck you in. #
  • It's also interesting how with the 3D, if someone blocks a section of the screen, or walks in front of you, it breaks the illusion. #
  • It fills me up with so much hope how each time the credits roll, the audience erupts in applause. Science fiction FTW! #
  • So, "the Company" in Avatar is Secfor, is that website "secforinternational.com" a part of the viral marketing? #
  • I think to tide me over until a blu-ray release of Avatar, I'm just going to rewatch the Skull Island scenes from Peter Jacksons King Kong. #
  • @amazon you are failing me today, with this replacement I am trying to get. I don't want a refund, I want to wait until the item is in stock #
  • Amazon is totally failing me today with trying to get a replacement of my 400 Blows @Criterion blu-ray that was damaged. #

  • @DrewAtHitFix perhaps you can drop a few hints, and let the twitter-verse play a guessing game? Maybe 20 Questions-esque? in reply to DrewAtHitFix #
