I kinda think it is though. If you make satire and it ends up as propaganda for the people you're satirizing, maybe your movie isn't good.

yeah maybe the life aquatic has less of a cg doesnít hold up issue and more of a ďshmaltz that the cg features prominently inĒ issue lol

yeah the cgi still works fine because the whole vibe of fake 60s nostalgia and to me that makes it less cloying since it is making a thematic point about how people reflect on history and regret missing something that never really existed

in season 3 do they explain how nobody notices one of the project leads at the park just happens to look sound and act exactly like the co-founder of the park who got killed by one of the robots

didnít they say in season 1 that no humans knew what Arnold looked because heíd had his history wiped and everyone assumed he killed himself before the corp took over

I realized why I enjoyed west world season 3 more than most, in my brain I just started treating each episode like it was anthology series and ignored the bigger plot. So yeah the last two episodes still were boring as gently caress, but like the episode about AI PTSD therapy or the Crime App, etc were far more enjoyable disconnected from the idea that the plot mattered. Dolores was just a different take on the idea of robots each episode rather than the same character with constantly changing powers

I would usually say (and double after seeing the Black Widow trailer) yup all done with Marvel trash but I can't deny the charm of the Hiddleston - See how the first couple of episodes shake out.

Also I would put cash on there being a VARIANT tshirt available to buy as merch very soon.

edit: I never even bothered to pick up WandaVision or the current Falcon/WinterSoldier - I saw enough positive chatter about the first to maybe give it a spin, is the latter any good so far? From what I've read it's not 'concept' like WV was.

i might just watch this for the time cop sets

I posted about a fun-to-see foreign 'The Hobbit' TV adaptation years back which seems to have been removed from YouTube since. No :smith: though, because there is now a (piece of) a Russian adaptation of The Lord of the Rings! No subs, mind, but you all know the story well enough to follow along.

with some refinement and programming i'm pretty skeptical that most people would be able to pick out a robot vs a person as lifeless without knowing which was which biasing the decision.

and this gets into the other reason you don't see this sort of stuff (anymore) you have to do a lot of work to build and maintain the library of adapted content

back before sound recording and playback was dominant that effort was more worthwhile, so you got the player pianos and automatic harps and the like

i was thinking not of a one-off prototype but of something that when sold at scale offered something reminiscent. iím not talking about building a box that holds a violin and a cello and whatnot and then configuring how to play, but something that has a few sets of strings and some resonance cavities built to suit. sorry for considering such laughable ideas in your special real world subjects only posting forum

yes people have already done it except without the ML magic and instead made out of wood and paper taper. it probably cost less than $4,000 at the time too.


just no one wants one now because either you're really rich and so the point is hiring the people or you're fake rich and you'd rather get a sonos that can do more poo poo as you try and keep up with the jones
