Has anyone seen Tenet yet? I went to the theater for the first time since Leap Day this past weekend. Saw it in 4D as well (where the seats move and fans blow on you, etc.). What a rush! I miss going to theater so much, and this was a great way to break back into it. I'm a huge Nolan fan, so have been looking forward to this movie since Dunkirk. It was very complex and kind of hard to follow, but his dedication to in-camera effects made it truly a treat. Great to see Hollywood blockbusters that are actually intelligent.
Also, does anyone else have any experience with watching movies in 4D? It's not for every movie, but when pulled off well (like when I saw Ready Player One), it is worth the extra cost.
Send me a message if you're looking for a voiceover, I'd love to gain some experience!
For the majority, he'll always be James Bond. But his initiation of that character on screen gave others the chance to add to it, and at the same time he portrayal of that character gave us the brilliant chemistry which he brought when portraying the Father of a renowned archaeologist. But he also gave us the voice of a Dragon who is certainly quite underrated these days in Dragonheart that's certainly quite forgotten about in some ways when we've had the likes of Game Of Thrones.
But however you'll remember him, Sir Sean will certainly be remembered as one of the greats who like so many leaves an unforgettable legacy. Rest in Peace, Sir Sean Connery.
It is sad about Sean Connery. He lived a good life and had a good carerr. He was a good James Bond and Indiana Jones Last Crusade is one of my fave films and that's down to his chemistry with Harrison Ford. I was very sad when he didn't come back for Crystal Skull but that was a bad Indy movie. I even liked him in Leage of Extroadinary Gentlemen even if Shean Connery himself didn't like it. I thought it was an entertaining movie and Sean Connery was great in the leading role.
Mr Connery has left a huge legacy and has proven what a great actor he is. Rest in Peace.
PercyFan1998: I think for me the issue is one of inconsistency. They took down the restored versions that have the highest quality image but will leave the lower-quality uploads all over the place.

zeldatheswordsm: Except that if you put it that way, it is consistent: They're specifically targeting the higher-picture-quality restored versions. Because gee, what's up on the streaming services and for sale on new-pressed disks? The restored versions
May 7, 2021 1:07:23 GMT
zeldatheswordsm: They're trying to force you to head to the paid options if you want to get the good picture quality.
May 7, 2021 1:09:31 GMT
zeldatheswordsm: Of course, in some ways the joke's on them because a lot of those restorations have worse editing and/or use inferior takes compared to the broadcast/VHS versions.

zeldatheswordsm: IMO Mattel would profit a lot more if they slashed the merch licensing fees. They were damagingly high even by the time of buyout, and have gotten worse since. And the bloated price tags have been definitely hurting sales from what I've seen.

zeldatheswordsm: Sales of a lot of the Bachmann Thomas rolling stock seemed to plummet as the prices jacked up based on the discontinuations (And I suspect the same hit the Hornby range even worse). And the Wooden Railway range had vanished from non-TRU bigbox stores (tbc)

zeldatheswordsm: in my area by 2015, and its shelf presence had been shrinking leading up to then. Thomas' shelf presence in general seems to have diminished a fair bit, and I imagine this is the cause. HiT and Mattel failing at distribution of the show can't have helped
May 7, 2021 1:24:55 GMT
toadthegwrbrakevan: HiT actually distributed the show very well in my opinion, good merchandise, Thomas was definitely more popular and well-to-do during the Miller era than during BWBA or today. But I agree for everything else, I'm curious about what you say about TWR,
May 7, 2021 2:53:36 GMT
toadthegwrbrakevan: growing up, the bigbox store never sold TWR, I could only get it at Barnes & Noble or Toys'R'Us, it was too expensive for Walmart or Target, that was Trackmaster territory.
May 7, 2021 2:54:29 GMT
zeldatheswordsm: For a while, Target and Mall Wart actually did stock it and decently. At least where I am. But that was in decline. Probably didn't help that Thomas-size engines were around $15
May 7, 2021 4:35:16 GMT
zeldatheswordsm: And I mean that HiT did a poor job distributing the show itself - the actual episodes. They got complacent about seeking alternatives to PBSKids even as viewing there (and govt. support) slipped into decline - and Mattel continued this complacency.

LNERandBR: Well, personally I think it's time to draw a line under all that and concentrate on better things. Speaking of, we have a new ERS volume for you all Check out who's returning: sodorislandforums.com/post/388698/thread

alexander876: Hey, Harperman, what did you think of Last of the Crewe Engines?
May 7, 2021 15:39:19 GMT
harperman: I Thought it a very good ERS Volume
May 7, 2021 15:45:56 GMT
harperman: I Am reading the entire ERS Library to gain a better understanding of it and its universe before attempting to try my hand at becoming an ERS Writer myself : D
