re: American Society of Cinematographers 10 Best Shot Films - Ace Midnight
[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,...

re: American Society of Cinematographers 10 Best Shot Films - Ace Midnight
[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...

re: Is LSU ready to be a playoff contender yet? - Ace Midnight
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]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
[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...

re: Did This Really Happen? - Ace Midnight
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...

[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, ...

re: Why we have less minorities voting conservative. From a Black conservative - Ace Midnight
[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...

re: Holy Chit! CNN is running a story saying furloughed workers have missed $5000 - Ace Midnight
[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...
