re: American Society of Cinematographers 10 Best Shot Films - Ace Midnight on 1/20/19 at 7:33 pm

re: American Society of Cinematographers 10 Best Shot Films - Ace Midnight on 1/20/19 at 7:30 pm
[quote]Don't particularly remember cinematography in this one. [/quote] The slow motion fight scenes (fighting juxtaposed with dancing, etc.) are what brings it to the list. Again, I'm a bigger fan of what Marty did with Taxi Driver (also Marty partnered with Chapman) and Goodfellas (Ballhaus,...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: American Society of Cinematographers 10 Best Shot Films - Ace Midnight on 1/20/19 at 7:26 pm
[quote]You simply can't not have that film on there [/quote] Some of those scenes were lit with candlelight. In the 1970s. Period. Full stop. The technical achievement of this film in particular showcased Kubrick and Allcot's raw, relatively unmatched before or since, technical mastery in...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Is LSU ready to be a playoff contender yet? - Ace Midnight on 1/19/19 at 8:46 am
Even with the woes, a couple of bounces here or there and we would have had a playoff resume in 2018. I mean, we beat aTm 3 or 4 times - but the refs just weren't having it. A single play could have changed Florida's outcome easily, as well. Now, no amount of "what ifs" can change Bama for us...

[quote]Can he play cornerback or safety? [/quote] He's fast enough, but I don't think he has the hips to play corner. If he has to move from offense, his skills would translate best to free safety....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]Bama passed on Kwon. [/quote] Well, that was complicated. Devall was a Louisiana kid(Bastrop, and not included in the OP, either) and a better fit for Bama's system. Kwon was the opposite....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Is there anything people want you to know about more - Ace Midnight on 1/18/19 at 10:41 pm
[quote]Than the fact that they went skiing? Maybe that they’re a vegetarian. [/quote] These are true for more commonly found people. However, if someone climbed Mt. Everest or went to a U.S. service academy (okay, mainly Annapolis and West Point), it will be IMPOSSIBLE for them to not wor...

re: Jerry Miculek weighs in on the bump stock - Ace Midnight on 1/18/19 at 3:44 pm
[quote]I am saying that showing an expert beating a bump stock's rate of fire is not a convincing argument that bump stocks don't increase the rate of fire for the average shooter. [/quote] Would you agree that "training" would increase the rate of fire for the average shooter? And, by that l...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Did This Really Happen? - Ace Midnight on 1/17/19 at 10:26 am
The Media did a lot of introspection after WWII - they felt they were compromised as cheerleaders for FDR. For that matter, most of the press leaned way left even then and were cheerleaders for FDR, the New Deal and the WWII effort. Instead of reporting on the Cold War - they were advocating, ba...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

[quote]A transition to green energy won't be cheap but it certainly does have its positives.[/quote] I'm on record as having no objection to "green" energy technology. However, you must know that it is at least a century away from being able to even nudge us away from coal, NG, oil and nuclear, ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Why we have less minorities voting conservative. From a Black conservative - Ace Midnight on 1/17/19 at 7:58 am
[quote]There are plenty of places in the South where they culturally never matured outside of the 1950s.[/quote] This is part of the problem - when someone is nostalgic or tries to reference back to those times it is assumed that all the bad things about those times are being praised. The 1950...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Holy Chit! CNN is running a story saying furloughed workers have missed $5000 - Ace Midnight on 1/16/19 at 9:59 pm
[quote]Around DC they do. [/quote] I was going to, sort of, call BS on this, but it's not that far off. Due to high as giraffe's balls locality pay rates, D.C. Feds average $115k and MD/VA workers average 6-figures as well. So, with 26 pay periods an average gross check for D.C. is about $4...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
