We Are Here For The Movie

lol there is nothing wrong with your opinion.

The Only thing I have a problem with regarding Blu-ray and the Plasma Screen TV's is the Price.

Standard definition is 480i, meaning there's 480 rows of pixels, the i meaning 'interlaced'. Interlaced video is where the even rows are drawn on one screen refresh, then it goes back to the top and draws the odd rows on the next screen refresh, effectively halving the resolution. 'Full' HD is 1080p, 1080 rows of pixels, and the p means 'progressive', where each row is drawn every time the screen refreshes. Standard definition is not 'almost Hi-Def'.

As to the difference not being noticeable, that is a matter of personal opinion. To me, the differences are immediately obvious. Also, how far away you are from the TV matters greatly. If you're too close, you can start to see the pixels, and if you're too far away, the pixels start to blur together. See THIS to calculate the optimum viewing distance for a given TV.

As to the cons... New formats are always more expensive than their older counterparts. This is to be expected of something new. Give it time, and the prices will come down as manufacturing costs decrease and the technology becomes more commonplace.

The fact that it requires an HDTV is a con for those that don't already have one, yes, but HDTVs are becoming more and more common, and will only become more so in the coming years.

DVDs are also region coded and DRMed. See THIS for more on that. Both the DVD and Blu-Ray region coding and DRM can and has been worked around and/or broken for your choice of purposes.

Disc scratches have always been a problem with optical media, and probably always will be(Unless you want to pay for diamond discs?). Yes, Blu-Ray is even more susceptible to them, but if you are careful with your discs, you're not likely to have problems with them.

As to digital downloads, Netflix and other businesses are already very successful. And what these sites are doing is not letting you download these movies, they are letting you stream them. You don't wait for the whole thing to download before you watch it, it is downloaded as you watch it and deleted as soon as you close the window. Also, I don't see how this is a con to Blu-Ray...

They're not forcing you to buy Blu-Ray. If you'll notice, new movies are still being released on DVD, and probably will be for years to come. I don't know anyone who has bought a Blu-Ray player yet, due to the price. But the price will come down, and more and more people will buy them as it does. They are not cutting off DVDs and saying "All our future releases will be on Blu-Ray". They would lose money that way, because most people don't want to(Or can't) shell out $200 for the 'basic' player. They would be asking for bankruptcy that way. There will be a gradual switch to Blu-Ray, same as with VHS, DVD and HDTVs.

That's my two cents on the matter, and you're welcome to point out any errors you find in it.

Sorry I'm adding another comment, haha. I just got to watch it (since yours is no longer available)

Here's my first impressions:
I am somewhat impressed. Of course, the overall feeling of the original comic is lost, but as an adaption - well, I'd see it. You mentioned product placement: There was ONE nice car, so there isn't much to complain about. The jeep and such are part of the original comic. It will be a fun kung-fu movie, but that's about it. Also, it's nice to finally see Emmy Rossum again!

Akira Toriyama is done with DB. You don't mind that the people who created the Watchmen movie are making it DESPITE one of the creator's disagreement. Same thing with the live action Cowboy Bebop. The reason most directors don't work with the original creators is because they flat out A.) Don't care or B.) Think its a stupid idea. The politics of Hollywood are a lot more complicated than simple yes and no.

You know, with Universal rejecting the Tintin budget (http://news.toonzone.net/article.php?ID=26147) It makes you wonder how many other big movies will be sidelined in the future...

Toby must have a good agent to pull that one off. 50 million? Just for the actor? That's ridiculous! Entire movies are made with a lesser budget than that

Is The Goblin-Man of Norway Real?

The answer of course is no. Unless by real you mean a really a well done hoax meant to increase excitement about a video game for XBox titled Too Human. The Goblin-Man of Norway is said to have been made in 1999 and is somehow connected to the Norwegian Film Committee. Suspiciously Goblin-Man of Norway is the only thing on the site. Even more suspiciously a whois search of norwegianfilmcommittee.org reveals that the domain was created on Feb 14, 2008 and is set to expire in only one year. What makes this suspicious is that the site claims the film is from 1999. Goblin-Man of Norway GoofBut the biggest goof is that there is a Toyota Prius in the driveway of “Rob Niosi” the “self-proclaimed ‘Goblin Man enthusiast’” which is exceptional considering the model of Prius hadn’t been introduced until 2004. Even more damning is the location of the server— Canada, where the game developer, Silicon Knights, is located. Taking all the above into consideration along with the fact that the film’s director “Howard Byrackk” has no bio or credits on IMDB or Wikipedia.

The “film” is trying to build a mythology around the game. The developers are claiming it is the opposite of course (saying the game is built around the film) to make things interesting. An interesting marketing campaign, but that is all it is.

It's very important to do full research of a subject before making any accusations of its true nature - whether truth or fiction.
