  1. Hello forum, It seems there is no thread about The velocity of Gary* (not his real name) until now so let's create one I'd say. I may be biased but to me Tom's performance was excellent in an "ok" movie. His juvenile insolence is getting at you in all the scenes. He is irresistible, which is the goal here. Salma Hayek is good too, she makes her character believable and injects much of passion. I'm not so sure about Vincent D'Onofrio. Difficult to say because I don't know which material he got from the script but in comparison to the others he's pale. I had wished the movie to be a bit more realistic concerning the emotions they are feeling. It's ok to reduce some aspects and not fall into "full drama" ("Philadelphia" was already released 6 years before) but especially towards the end of the movie I think the way chosen by the writers was way too simplistic. I also had the impression that the scenes were all attached to one another sequentially without any transition. It probably sounds harsher than it really is but I don't know how to express the feeling of "incompletness" of this movie. Hung fans: alone the entry scene of the movie will knock you down. Tom is unbelievable, unleashed like a wild feline in the jungle, sure of his body strength, his seductive power. I enjoyed very much the group of friends around the 3 main characters. Here it reminded me of "Priscilla queen of the desert", a movie I love with awesome Hugo Weaving. Also released a few years before Velocity of Gary. And as a nice side effect I got to train my player to read DVDs from region code 1. Could come in handy Conclusion: must see movie for Tom's fans but not a masterpiece.
  2. Awesome this little sneak peek
  3. Just looked his hashtag in Instagram up. There are incredible masks there... looking so damn real. So he's not only good at VFX but also at SFX
  4. Thanks Gail, then I'll keep on posting around here I have some crazy shit in my head. Sometimes it spills over. *disclaimer* I honestly don't care what people wear and I'm not a fashionista at all. The explanation below is a gut feeling. To me it seems the knitted piece of clothes comes from a girl. We do not know much about this movie. Just that the sheriff is called as a rescue by three sisters and the malevolent thingy is chasing boys. So my guess was that one girl gave it to the sheriff so he smells like a girl and wouldn't get chased down. Or the malevolent thingy really has a bad sight and thinks the sheriff is a girl. Or the three boys have a bad sight (or an excellent smelling) and wouldn't chase the sheriff down. Or... You get the point. I was so busy with my thoughts that I didn't think that maybe the piece of cloth (what's the name for this kind of pullover?) was his. Or lent by a friend. Or... Sorry people please bear with me
  5. And won't I feel silly if I'm not !!!
  6. See! There's always an explanation
  7. Isn't the knitted sweatshirt part of the character's design? I thought it was intentional to combine a cop's uniform with a knitted cloth in order to create contrast. But maybe it's Tom's ?
  8. The wardrobe is intriguing... there will probably be an explanation when we get to see it!
  9. Thanks Al ! Where you there when Steven answered the questions? I remember you did help interview Shoreh? The Expanse S4 can come, I'm ready! And by the way preparing my trip to Dortmund ComiCon on December 8th in case any other RAWarrior will be present.
  10. What I learned tonight (no rocket science once it's been clarified): The Difference between SFX and VFX Don’t worry, you are not the only one wondering what the difference between SFX and VFX is. Trust us, film production companies use a wide variety of unique terminology that film students still struggle to understand. It’ll take you two minutes to learn the difference between these two abbreviations. VFX – stands for video effects. That may not seem too challenging and that is because it isn’t. Video effects are additions to the actual graphic/video/shot. Scenes that include green scenes rely on VFX in the post-production stage of the film. This can be a shot of background scenery, the hammer Thor or even a character that is embodied by CGI (computer-generated imagery). Not to difficult, right? SFX – is the abbreviated way to say special effects. Now, there is further confusion for some because SFX is sometimes termed as sound effects—an aspect that film production companies work on in post-production as well. However, typically, SFX refers to special effects (an acronym that might be used to better represent sound effects is SE, but that is not the most common either). This means that when film production companies use SFX in a sentence, they are talking about the added effects on the set rather than in post-production. Things like animal suits, prosthetic makeup, animatronics and other effects that are on a character or used on a scene are categorized as special effects. While some SFX (special effects) are now being done by VFX (video effects) like explosions, there are still some examples of VFX and SFX that you would likely recognize. An obvious one to all generations is Yoda from Star Wars—he falls under the category of SFX. The magic that floods out of Harry Potter’s wand is a recognizable video effect (VFX). With many film production companies turning to CGI for their unique and high action scenes, VFX are being used more than ever and the trend seems to rely on SFX less and less. Yet, CGI is a highly advanced aspect of video production that is usually done at major studios. For videos on YouTube or company websites, SFX still plays a large role. Whether you were simply curious about the two abbreviations or you are looking for something more, to reiterate, VFX are added effects created digitally in post-production and SFX are used on the actual set.

    Wait... let me grab my foldable pocket Hubble telescope!... Just kidding, thanks Geoff!
  12. I don't share your opinion here. I don't know anyone with a cat named Cat. So it's different, if not inventive. It has a second degree humor to it that I enjoy. If the Monty Pythons had done it in a sketch, the world would say genius! Don't you think?
  13. Ok thank you for your help! The reason is, I'm finding my way within French and Belgian graphic novels (OK maybe not the "new" stuff of the past 10 years) but I honestly don't know much about what has been done in the US. I have the feeling these podcasts are more than just recommendations about what we should read. My guess is that Tim explains a lot about the art, the background story, the connections and the history of it all. It's not urgent... but maybe you'll find something.
  14. Hello Geoff, Poor you I have a new question... Any idea why this announced podcast isn't where it should be? Meaning: when I click on the link I get a RAW page saying "go to hell" (well actually it says nothing has been posted yet). Thanks in advance!
  15. Hello "all you need is ... pie" @lsiltari_, don't know if you're lurking around here. I would like to thank you for answering this question on Twitter and pointing at the RAWsome forum. Maybe this will help one more person. I have started my "film noir retrospective" now. Watched "Le doulos" first, as planned. Unsurprisingly it was fantastic. TJ said he wouldn't reveal the twist, it would be "criminal to do so". I thank him for that, but actually there were several twists (I also don't want to reveal them or even write here their real amount... I just wish to make you all needy). It is indeed gorgeous and I'll stop here because there's nothing TJ hasn't said already. Looking forward to see the next crime movies in the pipeline.
  16. Oh right, you're also from UK. I didn't remembered that. So I guess a good place for a RAWunion would be London I truly love being in UK, so I'll use you all as an excuse
  17. Here it is: (do I need to say there are spoilers in it?)
  18. had the same issue here. When Cat's on screen I have to admit I get furrily and softly distracted. You'll discover how the interview ends That's for sure! I discovered recently the daily diary written by Tim during the Dark Country shooting. I recommend it to you too. Needed several days to go through it, it's so fully packed with information, anecdotes, personal insights. I still have to come back to it one day. It is so well written you can feel the tension, the long discussions at night, the exhaustion, the successes and the cold. I learned a lot about techniques. I wish I could understand more. I'm learning and having fun here, it's great! feel the same way. It was a milestone for me to meet Chris Sue and Al. I've the feeling we will meet again at some point. And my current dream would be to meet you, Geoff and maybe some others during the Lycan signing in Europe. Be it Paris or London.
  19. Ha! Is "shooting ambidextrously" a better word than "shooting bi-handed"? Bi-handedly? Stereo-handedly?
  20. The time David took to show the butler and the glass scene: putting the glass straight to his lips would have been plump. Instead he's mentally stroking her hair or caressing her throat. TJ shows it with his fingers playing on the table. How delicious. It's a perfect short for me: this Angelique is also daydreaming and projecting so much out of this painting.
