A really important scene from Snowpiercer.

I have just learned, after some exhaustive searching that there are precisely 4 theatres in all of Canada playing this movie, opening this weekend.

Personally, I think this is an outrage and I really hope that there is enough turnout in all four theatres to prompt more widespread release.

Thankfully, I live close enough to Toronto to be able to go and see it there.

I personally love the Muppet Babies ‘Nanny’ socks on ‘Mom’.  This is my favourite thing today.

Color Classics were a series of Technicolor animated shorts produced by Fleischer Studios as a competitor to Walt Disney’s Silly Symphonies. Many of the cartoons used Max Fleischer’s Stereoptical process, which created an illusion of depth by animating against 3D background sets.

Watch Color Classics

Can I tell you about Fleischer’s Stereoptical process? Let me tell you about Fleischer’s Stereoptical process.

This is one of the coolest things in early animation, because these are not just 3D background sets. These are miniatures that were built on circular discs, similar to lazy susans, with a forced-perspective design (so the objects in the front look bigger than those in the background). They were designed to be rotated, so that it would look like the animated characters were running or walking through a landscape (as seen in the second row right gif).

You know how when you’re riding in a car, the landscape close to you seems to move a slower rate than the area further out? That’s the same illusion Fleischer Studios were able to capture with their Stereoptical process. It is really freakin’ cool.

Fleischer was a pioneer in animation, and not just the techniques that were used but also in the subject matter and thematic elements that were used. 

I need to have these on DVD.

HOW DOES THIS HAVE SO FEW REBLOGS you people are making me feel so old and I’m really not even an adult yet.

we still have one of these in my house… it doesn’t get used, but we still have it.

do people really not remember…..?

*opens arms*

My old friend!

I have one up in the closet for tape conversions if I find them in storage.

Mine still lives, but my husband has outlawed it to the closet.  It gets used only for Dr Who tapes that I haven’t got on DVD.

This is how much I loved Cap 2

I totally just pre-ordered Captain America: The Winter Soldier on Blu-ray. 

It’s not coming out on DVD/BluRay until September.

I NEVER pre-order movies.  Ever.  I wait until they come down from ridiculous and pick them up from the $10 Bin at Wal Mart.  That’s how I picked up Thor, and Iron Man, and that’s how I intend to pick up Iron Man 2.  Even better was finding X Men: First Class in the $5 bin.   

But since this won’t happen as often now that Disney has their hands in the pot, I take what I can get, which in this case means using a ‘perk’ I get at work for 5% off of select merchandise at Future Shop.  On a 26.99 movie that was a whopping dollar and change. 

And then I think, a year ago, I hadn’t seen ANY of these movies. 

Watching ‘The Avengers’s has turned me into a rabid Marvel fan. 

And being a rabid Marvel fan has turned me into a person who pre-orders her movies. 

And apparently it also turns me into a person who starts a random post about something awesome and turns into a rant about how insane she is.  I’m gonna start a club.  We’ll get T-shirts.

YOU DONT UNDERSTAND I REALLY WANT TO MARRY SOMEONE WHO WILL COSPLAY WITH ME AND WE CAN DRESS UP OUR CUTE LITTLE BRATS AND IT WOULD BE A GOOD LIFE

This is already my life, minus the kids.

I wish I could reblog with pictures of me and my husband, but I don’t have any on this computer.  We cosplay The 11th Doctor and River Song, and we have a ginger haired son.  Eventually I’m going to put him in a fez and people will go nuts over Ginger!WhoOffspring.
