Verified on phone - no changes from previous version.
It is on mine. It’s not the whole movie and the IMAX scenes are not 4:3. Its slightly more rectangular. It’s 1.43:1 and not 1.33:1, which is also known as 4:3
It really helps make the fight look more epic. Even comes with enhanced colour to make it pop more.
I tried to take screenshots but it wouldn’t let me.
Exactly--and that includes those who invest too much of themselves into fictional characters, so if a version is not being All Things to their eyes as only they have imagined it, such a person or groups spew unfounded accusations at a filmmaker, as if he took something away from them (that they have never had control over in the life of the character).
Quoted for truth.
I little off topic, but I find interesting on the subject of toxic fandom. Katie Lucas (daughter of George) wrote this on Twitter about the "raped my childhood" thing:
Well, for curiosity I went to the most famous Star Wars board to read the comments on that and people there were actually offended by Katie's words. Didn't she know what his father did!?! "Rape" was the right word to use!
Edit: err, it seems that people got offended on Trekbbs board too...
"George Lucas raped my childhood" was always intended to be a phrase loaded with hyperbole. Explaining why it's not correct isn't going to stop anyone from using it. Not to mention, rape doesn't only mean sexual assault.
That's not to say I would defend fans that seek out and attack someone personally. I do not like those people.
Edit: Ah jeez, she wrote that a decade ago. Talk about dredging up old news.
This particular expression could be a little out of fashion now, but if anything the fandom only gotten worse since then. Just look what happened with the more recent movies. And even here, where fortunately we skipped the worst excesses, we had infinite discussions on why Rey is such a "Mary Sue" (that means she did the same things that the other SW main characters had done before, but since she is a female, this thing is bad for nebulous reasons).
Just started watching the Snyder Cut - and TBH, I’m loving it! I especially love the redone visuals of chapter 2: Age of Heroes - and overall, it visually appears more interesting than the Joss Whedon release, IMO.
PS: I’m not finished yet, so my comments are a WIP, but my initial impression of s positive, and I’d like to see more!
Now someone add this back into the movie
Save for the times I heard it used genuinely.
Shame they cancelled the New Gods movie. I wanted to know more about Darkseid and how he “lost” Earth.
It's always in the last place you look.
A lot of universes have an Earth.
I get that but you would think his ship would have some sort of tracking software that would Monitor what planet they were on and what universe.
His map app sucks.
The space bridge only works if the mother boxes achieve unity.
Locking down a constantly moving point in spacetime.
Earth is spinning on it's axis, the axis is revolving around the sun, the sun is revolving around the galactic core, and the galactic core is spinning around the centre of the universe (which is New Genesis and Apocolips!!!) which is spinning around the Multiversal core, which may be where the DCU new Gods are living.
Oa is at the canter of the universe. Maybe the Center of the multiverse?
Could have used a few more lines to explain that plot hole.
I think Oa is just in the Prime Universe.
I know people use the phrase for sexual violence exclusively these days, and take offense when it is used in any other way but the word rape means to take something forcefully and it has been used that way for many years. The Rape of the Lock or De Do Do De Dah Dah by The Police as two examples.
In that sense the George Lucas accusations mean exactly what people are saying--and that is not to say I, in any way, agree with that accusation--it is still bullshit.
Separate names with a comma.
