Movies Stopped Working
UnluckyNoob posted a topic in The Work BenchHey guys! I don't typically use forums, so I apologize if there is a better place for this or if I'm overlooking something that might already answer my question. So I have KOTR on Steam and played it several months ago without problems. I disabled the Steam overlay and the intro cutscenes in order for it to work, but from there everything went smoothly. I started playing again yesterday and though the game itself still works fine, all the 'movies' are just skipped. There isn't a crash or a blank screen, but it seamlessly moves on to whatever gameplay is after the cutscene. If I try watching them from the 'Movie' section on the main menu, clicking the buttons just makes the normal beeping sound and nothing happens. The credits still work though. So far I've tried messing with the resolution, compatibility modes, and a couple of other small things, but nothing has worked so far. The game itself is still fine, but it would be nice not to have to look up all the cutscenes manually. Any ideas?
Marvel Cinematic Universe
HED posted a topic in Ahto Spaceport CantinaSDCC 2013 came and went recently, and as has become a trend one of the most exciting panels was the Marvel Studios panel. The big announcement was that the sequel to the Avengers will be subtitled Age of Ultron. In addition, Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch are set to join the Avengers. Personally, I'm excited. Thanos is cool and all, but to me he isn't much of an Avengers villain. Ultron is the quintessential enemy of the Avengers. Marvel also showed off footage from Thor: the Dark World, Captain America: Winter Soldier, and surprisingly Guardians of the Galaxy. GotG seems to be the riskiest film in Phase Two, with a cast lacking in superstars playing some very obscure characters. But I think that if James Gunn can pull it off, it could be the best superhero movie in a while.
Well, as you might have guessed by some of my other posts, I love this movie! Here are 10 reasons that you have to see this movie if you haven't already! 1: It's Indiana Jones... - No other film series is as beloved as Indiana Jones (with the obvious exception of Star Wars) 2: Harrison Ford - He proves that he can still crack the whip and kick some serious @ss even at 60+. "It's not the year, it's the mileage." 3: High adventure - No other movie can compare to the action and adventure seen in Indiana Jones, and this one does not disappoint 4: Humor - The series never took itself completely seriously, and it's a credit to it's quality 5: Soundtrack - John Williams, the mastermind behind Star Wars and the other Indy films soundtracks has done an excellent job with the music in the new installment (be ready to hum it all day long). 6: Bad Dudes - With the Nazis long gone, a new sinister force is ready to try and take down Indy...can you say "comrade?" 7: Artifacts - With all of the movies, each artifact held a powerful secret. However, there were also real facts to back up each artifact, and this movie follows suit 8: Sidekicks - Indy always likes to take some people along with him in his adventures, and he takes a few interesting ones this time, and they each add something new and fun to the story 9: Same places, some new faces - A lot of locales that we have seen before are present in this movie and they definitely bring some nostalgic feelings back, but in the end, they help to add depth to the film. 10: Final Fight? - Let's face it, Harrison is getting older (shocked right?), and if not definitely, it's probable that this is the final Indiana Jones installment, so it may be your last time to see Indy theaters... Well, I hope that this could convince at least some of you to go see the movie because it really is great to see the man in the hat back in action, and it is an exciting thrill ride most definitely. Enjoy!
The Dark Knight...
urluckyday posted a topic in Community DiscussionWell, it's finally here. Saw it this morning at midnight...The Dark Knight. The continuation of the Batman series with Christian Bale (spelling?). And let me be the first to tell you, it was well worth the wait. Ledger is golden as the Joker and he creates a truly believeable insane villain with chilling results. The joker, in the first place, is the greatest comic book villain ever (opinion of course), and I don't feel that he was given true justice in the old "Batman" film. Now, he is shown as a schizophrenic mad man who has a very sadistic view on criminals and crime fighters. Anyway, as for my ramblings on, these are just my opinons. Please use this thread as a place to review the movie, ask questions, etc. Just ask yourself... "Why so serious?"
IG-64 posted a topic in Yoda’s SwampI'm a huge Pixar fan. I just watched this last night, and it's shaping up to be one of my favorites. I don't know if it's the kind of movie kids will enjoy as much, but I certainly did. It was much slower paced than most kids films these days, but to me that's partly what made it so great (a la 2001: A Space Odyssey, to which it acknowledged in several different ways). It wasn't perfect, there is one thing that bothered me: However, once I got over that, the movie was awesome. Great characters, interesting plot, amazing visuals. Despite some smudges on the sheen, it was another amazing experience from Pixar, and up there with my favorites.
