It takes a fucking year before the Avengers come out. My god that's a long time.
Sometimes it's two years before a film get's in theaters. By the time some indies get in the theater, I've lost interest.
You know its a huge global industry with tons of different parties involved? Not even accounting for the time involved in such a production that is special effects laden and has huge set pieces.
For a huge film like Avengers, it takes 3-5 months to film, about 3-5 months to edit and add post production effects. Then the last 2 months for screenings, pick ups, more editing and marketing.
That's the problem with those big-budget special effects extravaganzas, it takes forever to make the cool stuff look that cool.
Hang in there, OP. That's rough!
Some movies are made in two weeks, OP.
Cassavetes took years and long breaks sometimes to make his films because he would run out of money and he and Gena would have to land more acting jobs to pay to get the production back up.
The Avengers isn't anything worth thinking about at all.
Why the hell does it matter to anyone when a film is released?
"I refuse to see it because I read in Entertainment Weekly that it went into production 18 months ago."
Animated movies take even longer.
You're 15, right OP?
I agree with R7. Who cares how long a movie takes to be made, unless it's dated upon release. All I care about is the finished product. Regarding "Avengers" and other franchises, Hollywood sometimes holds them back for a suitable amount of time, thinking no one wants to see a sequel four months after it's predecessor. Such happened with the last two "Harry Potter" movies.
I wasn't talking about big budget films. It bothers me that a small film can take years before it is finally shown. I know big budget films will eventually make it to the theaters but those aren't the films I'm most interested in.
I think that's the OP's IQ, R9.
Go make a movie, then tell me how long it should take. For fuck's sake, OP.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
