Re: Favorite Movie Screenshots

Sorry, the actual "Battle Scene" comparison is with Star Trek III, it's direct in places...

Re: Favorite Movie Screenshots

Perhaps for watchers in movie theaters or darkened rooms, but these things are clearly purposely lit & filmed to actively prevent watching on a TV screen during daylight hours.  The problem is pretty much industry wide.  I've just about given up trying to watch movies as a result.  The problem doesn't usually arise with old movies before they forgot how to shoot them. But some folks, me included, have problems tolerating the lighting conditions in movie theaters (consequence of autistic spectrum sensory issues), they leave me with migraine like symptoms.  Aliens, would have been a good movie if they'd bought some light-bulbs, as it was, approx 2 hours movie approx 6 hours post-movie pain, not worth it.  And totally unwatchable in a well lit room.

Since it clearly causes you no issue, you wouldn't consider it, any more than most folks consider the effects of flashing images on epileptics.

It's a real shame so many movies are ruined by being filmed in the dark.

So, not so much jaded, more ticked off that I can't watch the modern industry's output.

interesting, because i have noticed this too.
but i'm not sure it has to do with cinema, because i see the same effect with netflix series and such. i always assumed it's got something to do with the rips i'm watching, it never occured to me that they were made like that on purpose.

in any case, mpv has contrast, brightness, gamma and saturation adjustment hotkeys - usually it's enough to crank the gamma up without making the film look too washed-out, but sometimes i also increase brightness by just one tick, and very rarely i have to reduce contrast a little.

Two Lane Blacktop (1971)
Laurie Bird, James Taylor, and Dennis Wilson
This is a great movie, and probably the one that I have liked for the longest time.

The film also starred Warren Oates, who played the part well

Re: Favorite Movie Screenshots

I was really enjoying this movie until the end, when Harold Faltermeyer served me the worst outro-song in the history of cinema, "Restless Heart/Running Away With You'. The Running Man (1987)

Limitless
one of the greatest sci-fi movies ever in my opinion

short synopsis - guy gets given a pill that makes him into a genius while he is high
he needs more of it - he gets more and more genius ideas and interests
