Ah, that makes sense. Yeah, I'd probably see that movie.

What, "Underslung Shotgun"? That is a pretty good title, but I'd have to see who's directing before committing to it. It sounds like a war flick, but somehow in the "quirky indie" genre.

It's not point and laugh, but when you are on design and want to be a professional you have to be very careful when it comes to grammar. It's very essential and it can destroy your beautiful work completely.

And I'll stand and say, there is no excuse. We can find several tools to help us out with our bad English. We can even ask a native speaker of English, we don't live in then 80's anymore.

That was the original tagline. The original poster's pretty awesome too, though:



In newspapers, they used much different artwork:



They also had a special July 4th newspaper ad:



The first "Gremlins" had quite a few 'special' ads as well:

All those are great. What's a nice touch is they tell you that the tone of the movie is a lot different than the first one. I am still amazed by Gremlins 2 for being pretty much a parody of the first one without tarnishing the first one at all. Both movies are great a the individual level.

Both the Gremlins movies are fantastic in their own right. The direction they took the sequel in was pretty ballsy and it worked out great.

The CGI looked to be about on par with what was in the actual movie. If anything, I found the cellphone in that to be far more amusing. That Nokia clunker was cutting edge in 2001.

It's not so much just in the teaser as it is the teaser. I'm pretty sure there was never supposed to be a WTC scene (or at least not that one) in the movie itself and the whole thing was made as a very early stand-alone teaser, and that's why...

Maybe going slightly off-topic, but using the image data off letterboxd.com and some quick copy/pasting, I made a couple of wallpapers using the posters for all the movies I'd logged on the site. There's probably websites that do this for you, but I thought I'd kill some time.

Well, I'm on Letterboxd.com, and it's awesome - but it's apparent I'd have to create such a wallpaper myself, unless... ?

Yeah, the teaser was shot separately from the rest of the film, although I think I remember hearing that the climax of the movie was originally going to take place on top of the World Trade Center (which was definitely the case for Men in Black 2).

The WTC ending was in the James Cameron script, I believe, not any of the ones after he left and Raimi got on board. I think it's where Spidey and Arnold as Doc Ock were supposed to have their final show down.

drat, it always surprises me to remember that Mirror's Edge actually got good reviews. For me it was just trial-and-error quicktime event gameplay interspersed with terribly-written anime cutscenes.

I don't think you know what quicktime events are, because Mirror's Edge had no QTEs.

I was using it to refer to the fact that Mirror's Edge was extremely linear and repetitive, gave the player very little agency, and basically boiled down to trial-and-error gameplay of hitting the jump button at exactly the right time. It didn't have literal quicktime events but you could replace 80% of the game with them and it would have made very little difference.

Doom is extremely linear, repetitive, gives the player very little agency, and basically boils down to trial-and error gameplay of hitting the shoot button at exactly the right time.

Pac-Man is extremely linear, repetitive, gives the player very little agency, and basically boils down to trial-and error gameplay of hitting the direction button at exactly the right time.

God of War is extremely linear, repetitive, gives the player very little agency, and basically boils down to trial-and error gameplay of hitting the attack and jump buttons at exactly the right time.

I could keep going, if you'd like. Just say you didn't like the game, dude. Hell, I never even finished Mirror's Edge because I got to a jumping puzzle that I had no loving idea how to finish and quit. No one will mind if it wasn't your thing, but none of those criticisms aren't true of a ton video games, right down to kind of being what video games, on the whole, are.

I did say I didn't like the game and started by saying that I recognize the issues I had weren't issues to a lot of people-- I'm not trying to convince people it was bad, just explaining why I, personally, had so little fun with it.
