Wasn't this movie based on a bunch of Soviet hikers who wandered onto a missile range and likely died of radiation sickness or some such?
User avatar #24838 - thedudeistheman (09/05/2014) [-]
In the movie they say only one person died of radiation sickness, but I haven't looked into the actual event.
User avatar #24840 - scowler (09/06/2014) [-]
Okay...
#24731 - lungeroy (08/31/2014) [-]
I've also seen this, I agree with the acting in the first two acts, and in the third act the movie impressed me. The twist was, to say the least, cleverly done.
User avatar #24736 - thedudeistheman (08/31/2014) [-]
I also liked the twist. I still don't understand the camera thing where it just loops over them watching themselves.
#24737 - lungeroy (08/31/2014) [-]
yeah, that was a bit weird
User avatar #24704 - thedudeistheman (08/30/2014) [-]
In the final moments of the movie, it's shown that by using the portal, the two main characters turn into the deformed monsters that were tormenting them in the present day, which is a very nice twist, and wasn't obvious (at least not to me). When the monsters are shown, it's very clear that it's the two main characters, as they're the first people shown post-teleportation, and you see their bodies getting moved around. For some reason, despite the fact that anyone who had watched the movie could tell that these were the main characters, there's a shot where one monster turns its head, revealing a tattoo that had been shown on the main female character earlier in the movie, thus continuing the trend of being force fed everything there is to tell.

Now, why am I explaining this? In the trailer to the movie, there's clearly a large emphasis on the monsters, and they don't even show up until the last 25-30 minutes of the movie, and even then a good chunk of that time isn't spent focusing solely on them. It would lead you to believe that the monsters play a bigger role in this movie than they really do.

Additionally, there are two moments (there may have been more, but considering how things are shoved down your throat in the movie, I doubt I missed any) when you can see the monsters crawling in the background. In one of these scenes, it's hard to believe the cameraman wouldn't have noticed the creature crawling around (it's a found-footage movie). That may just be nitpicking, but if it was that obvious to the viewer, it probably would've been obvious to the guy who was there, even considering how tension and adrenaline could've affected him.

As for the grandma, there's an interesting plot point where, right before the military officers recover the main characters' bodies after they travel through time, a couple who had been hiking stumble upon the bodies.


More spoilers continued in the next comment.
User avatar #24705 - thedudeistheman (08/30/2014) [-]
This is a nice nod to the grandma's story about how she had found eleven bodies when she was part of the search team, when there were supposed to only be nine. I mention this because it's another moment that the viewer gets to figure out on their own. In fact, I didn't realize it until I was writing this out.

Warning: DO NOT WATCH THE TRAILER BEFORE WATCHING THE MOVIE. From what I can tell, the trailer just plays events from the movie in order up until the twist. Before watching the movie, I didn't know this, so it didn't really ruin it for me. It might not ruin it for you either, but if you'd prefer to have at least some surprises before the twist, don't watch the trailer.

I know

I was just making the point that 60fps can make a big difference.
User avatar #14798 - thedudeistheman (08/26/2014) [-]
I'm not denying that, but the difference is less significant (overall) on PC and console games then on the Oculus Rift. Yes, it does look considerably different than 30 FPS on PCs/consoles, it doesn't really affect the experience of the game (if 30 FPS ruins a game for you, then maybe you need to re-evaluate why you're playing games. Not you specifically, just a general "to anyone reading this").

However, the frame rate situation for the Rift isn't comparable because it's much different than the experience had while playing on PC/console because of the positioning and the way your movement affects the camera on the Rift. It's like trying to argue that going at plane's speed while driving in a car makes a big difference. Obviously yes, it does make a difference, but the means of transportation is so different that you couldn't even attempt to make a logical comparison of the situation.

Setting an oculus rift to 30fps can induce vomiting.
User avatar #14783 - thedudeistheman (08/26/2014) [-]
The Oculus Rift is still technology that needs to be perfected, whereas PCs and consoles have been developed to the point where any experimenting done isn't to make the platform bearable.

Well typically a person that games on consoles wouldn't use a rift....
And if someone had a Rift but their PC could only game at 30FPS then they need to get their priorities straight
User avatar #14782 - skiskate (08/26/2014) [-]
True that.
User avatar #14775 - istartedthewar (08/26/2014) [-]
I totally agree, you can adjust to the FPS difference quickly, and it doesn't get in the way of gameplay.

Also, on PS4, there's more games that run at 60FPS then 30 FPS.
www.ign.com/wikis/xbox-one/PS4_vs._Xbox_One_Native_Resolutions_and_Framerates

Also, a console displaying 900p that is upscaled to 1080p looks much better than a PC outputting 900p.
User avatar #14785 - thedudeistheman (08/26/2014) [-]
I think the only time FPS is a problem is if you're dropping frames or if the game runs at a rate that makes it choppy or causes screen tearing.

Theres something you have to do to an apk after you make it, that makes the phone install it, but fuck me i cant remember what its called. One time some friends made an app and wanted to test it on my phone, thye put the apk on without doing this thing and got the same error you are getting, then they did the thing and it worked. this is like no fucking help at all i know, if i remember ill tell you.

Okay. Thanks for this information though. All this time I'd been thinking I messed up the creation of the APK itself (which is very possible), and I won't have access to the code for another couple of weeks, probably. But if I was just missing a step post-making the file, then I might be able to take care of it from here. Either way, I'll do some searching too.

superscore, so they'll take my best scores in each section spanning both tests to create a composite score. I recommend picking up this book:

www.amazon.com/The-Official-SAT-Study-Guide/dp/0874478529/ref=cm_lmf_tit_1/192-5399030-1948859

I think most major bookstores should have it. It helps give you an idea of what the test will be like. There's also a self-scoring thing in there to give you an idea of what you would've gotten for that section on the real test.

- If you're taking any AP classes this year, the AP test is going to be somewhat different than other tests you've taken, assuming you take the AP test and haven't taken one before. I took an AP English class in my Junior year, and you really have to pace yourself through the whole test. Whereas your teacher might give you benchmarks like "fifteen minutes left" or "you should be moving on to the writing section/multiple-choice section," the AP test proctors don't do that. I've heard you can't really study much for AP tests because the whole year up to that point is essentially prepping you as far as material goes, but I don't know if that applies to all subjects.

- If you're not already, get involved with clubs. It looks good on college applications (or so I've heard. I'm going to be a Senior in high school) and it really helps get your mind off of things when you're stressed out from the workload. Aside from those two things, it's just a good way to keep yourself socially healthy. You've probably heard similar stuff before, but it's the truth.

That's all I've got for now. As I said, I'm going to be a Senior, so my memory of Junior year is still pretty clear. If you have any questions now or later, chances are I'll probably be able to give some advice if you need it.

User avatar #106 to #105 - instalation ONLINE (03/28/2014) [-]
I'm pretty okay. It's been nearly a year but I think I'm finally about to actually drop him. I've decided on it now, and I'm pretty okay with the idea.

I just feel like I should have thanked you for your help and stuff.
User avatar #107 to #106 - thedudeistheman (03/28/2014) [-]
I wish you only the best of luck. You deserve happiness, and especially to be treated well.

I appreciate that, but you really don't have to. We shouldn't have had to talk about that, but unfortunately, there are people in the world who abuse others. I just wanted to lend a hand. I'm glad I could help.
User avatar #108 to #107 - instalation ONLINE (03/28/2014) [-]

User avatar #112 to #111 - thedudeistheman (03/28/2014) [-]
Okay, no problem. I'll be here if you do decide to come back for a chat. Again, it was really no trouble at all, but I appreciate the fact that you came back after nearly a year to thank me for that. It does mean a lot to me.
User avatar #109 to #108 - thedudeistheman (03/28/2014) [-]
That's okay. It's sort of hard to transition from the previous topic. I understand you might have planned to just stop by quickly, so if you'd like to go, I just want to say it was nice hearing from you again, and that you're okay. Again, best of luck to you.

I've watched it.

It was interesting. Being that it's experimental and has come from the creativity of your own mind, I can't even begin to imagine what it could represent, if anything at all. But I like it.
User avatar #91 to #90 - tvfreakuk (11/03/2013) [-]
At the moment what is there means pretty much nothing in terms of the visuals meaning.
But as the original premise was coming from my fear of procrastination, what I'm wanting it to be is that it's simply something I've made, that I can say I've made and can be proud of, show people, and have actually achieved something... And I guess that's the meaning
User avatar #92 to #91 - thedudeistheman (11/03/2013) [-]
I understand what you're saying. Good luck with the rest of the video. Judging from this, I'm sure it'll turn out very well, even if it's nothing like this part.
User avatar #93 to #92 - tvfreakuk (11/03/2013) [-]
Yeah I'm currently working with Paper Mache in stop-motion of a moving eye with the lighting superimposed on top.
In a way, it's going to be about the procrastination thing again (with the eye being "distracted" by the lights) but it just makes it interesting visuals, rather than the narrative I had before about the computer that was just getting a little complicated
User avatar #94 to #93 - thedudeistheman (11/03/2013) [-]

never played any of the feed the beast mod packs? have you played tekkit before?

No and no. At most I've messed around with some Bukkit plugins, but the server I used to host was either Bukkit or Vanilla with some client-side mods (TMI, any number of flying mods, maybe OptiFine).

well your in for a world of confusion then

I've seen in-depth Tekkit stuff before, but I have no idea how to do or use any of it. But hey, you can't learn if you don't mess around with it.

The following events took place on what I believe was the first server I ever hosted.

> Myself, Scooby Doo, and another kid are playing (we'll call that kid Goaty)
> Goaty is doing something far away from the town we built up (this was probably around Beta 1.2 or very close to that, so we couldn't hijack pre-built towns)
> Scooby Doo and I decide to have some fun
> Go into Goaty's house
> Place TNT under one single block in his house
> Put pressure pads on every single block in his house to trick him
> Goaty comes back
> "What is this?"
> Tell him it's just a game
> "No, you guys put TNT under my house."
> The jig is up but he still hasn't activated the TNT yet
> Goaty starts breaking all the pressure pads
> **** , we didn't anticipate this
> Get nervous that he won't blow up his own house
> He breaks the pressure pad he was supposed to step on
> I replace it
> At the time, he would always hit you the same number of times you hit him
> I punch him once
> I turn around and start running
> I step on the pressure pad to activate the TNT
> Scooby Doo sees this
> **** is going down
> We both rush out of the house
> Goaty just barely makes it
> Kaboom ************
> His house explodes
> Turn around to observe the damage
> 95% of it is gone
> Only some of the sides remain
> "WHY DID YOU GUYS DO THAT?"
> Tell him he stepped on the pressure pad and blew it up
> Goaty rages
> Scooby Doo and I head off somewhere else
> Goaty destroys the museum we made and some other stuff
> Looking back on it, we did deserve it
> To this day, whenever it comes up, I still tell him that it was his fault
> Don't know if he knows the truth or not

Kinda short, but still one of my favorite experiences in the game. If wanted, I have one last story I could share.

The following events took place on a server I used to run but unfortunately lost the world file for.

> Myself, Scooby Doo, HGA, and Friend A are online
> It's pretty much always just us
> We all wanted to try messing around with Bukkit, so I boot up a Bukkit server with a few plugins
> Have this one plugin that has a ******* of commands
> Scooby Doo and I decide to try them all
> At the moment, only he and I are OP-ed
> Go out into the desert to mess around so it doesn't affect the town
> Find one command that lets you spawn huge balls of material
> Let's try it out
> Spawn a huge ball of sponge
> Neato
> Decide to spawn an even bigger ball of water or ice or smething
> Probably has a radius of 50 or larger
> Entire server lags out
> Less than 1 FPS
> Even the town gets a lag spike for a few minutes
> After eventually getting back to town, the lag dies down
> Call that area "The Forbidden Lands" and never return to it
> Don't let it stop us from ******* around
> Move to unpopulated jungle-like area (jungles weren't a biome yet)
> Find a command called "delchunk" or something
> Gee I have no idea what this could do
> Decide to test it where Scooby Doo is standing
> Nothing happens
> "Maybe it doesn't work or something."
> Suddenly entire chunk disappears and he falls all the way through the world
> We share a hearty laugh for a minute or two
> Have no way to undo our mistake
> Have to block up missing chunk
> Only do top layer
> Wait for some poor soul to dig over there and find the horrors that lie below
> Go back into town after testing some less fun commands
> Find some commands that appear to cause large explosions
> Go to HGA's house
> Decide to test the explosion stuff practically right next to his home
> "But thedude, we don't know how large the explosion radius is."
> "Please, I know what I'm doing."
> Use a nuke command or something similarly destructive
> Aim the cursor fairly far away from HGA's house
> Press enter
> ************ .everywhere
> Massive explosion lags out the server for a moment
> The edge of the exploded area can't be more than 5 blocks away from HGA's house
> "WHAT THE **** WAS THAT?"
> HGA is visible distressed
> "Don't worry about it, it was nothing."
> Keep dicking around in town, yet more cautious of seemingly explosive commands
> Find a fireball command
> "It can't be that large."
> Fire one off near HGA's house because we clearly know what we're doing
> Let me tell you, this was not a small fireball
> Strikes the impact crater the nuke left
> HGA can see it from his house
> "GODDAMMIT WHAT ARE YOU GUYS DOING?"
> "Don't worry, we're being careful."
> Suddenly notice HGA's roof is on fire
> Initiate game type Firefighter, difficulty = insane
> Fire is spreading like STDs in a sex ed video
> Quickly make our way to the roof of his house
> Put it out quickly somehow, but don't question it
> Replace blocks before he notices anything
> Eventually finish going through commands in a less destructive manner

Sort of an anticlimactic conclusion, but not all stories have the best endings.

I have two more stories I remember that I can share, if there's still interest.
#62 to #61 - BlakHoleSun (08/11/2013) [-]
Another good story.
User avatar #63 to #62 - thedudeistheman (08/11/2013) [-]
Will do. I've been saving one of my personal favorites for last.
User avatar #64 to #63 - georgeojffs (08/12/2013) [-]
love these so much
User avatar #65 to #64 - thedudeistheman (08/12/2013) [-]
I shall mention you too. I think this next one will be one of the better ones. Probably on a similar level to the Hunger Games story.

The following events have taken place on various server. I think this particular story was on one of my servers.

> Scooby Doo, Hunger Games Addy (we'll just abbreviate that to HGA from now on), and I are messing around on the server
> HGA is working on his house or something
> It's primarily wood-based
> Scooby Doo and I decide to have some fun and play firefighter, a "game" we made up
> The game involves setting someone's house on fire, turning around (or watching) for five or ten seconds
> This server was made after fire spread was nerfed in one of the updates, so we decide to give it a full twenty seconds before stepping in
> See HGA's house is mainly made out of wood
> Tell him we're going to have some fun
> Responds with something along the lines of "Okay, just don't **** around near my house"
> He has no idea what we're doing
> Perfect
> Scooby Doo and I go to the front of his house while he's working on the back
> We each set one block on fire
> Turn around and count to 20
> Turn around to face the house again
> Oh dear Lord what have we done
> Entire front of the house is one fire and spreading inside
> We both start to half-panic, half-laugh in that panicky sort of way\
> Both start punching out fires as fast as possible
> It does virtually nothing, as the fire just re-spreads to the blocks
> Start breaking blocks to prevent fire spread
> It's no use, blocks are breaking from fire anyway
> "WHAT THE **** IS GOING ON?"
> Oh no, it's HGA
> He is not a happy camper
> "Don't worry, we have this under control
> Entire second level of house practically gone at this point
> Suddenly, I have a genius idea
> Just fill entire house with water
> Go inside and place source blocks covering at least half the house
> Well the fire's gone
> Scooby Doo and I spend next ten minutes blocking up the source blocks and other pesky water leaks
> Spend next five minutes replacing floor
> Front of the house takes another five minutes, spruce it up a bit as an apology gift
> Scooby Doo and I wander off and HGA gives us no thanks even though we repaired his house
> Jokingly say "You're welcome."
> "YOU BURNED DOWN HALF OF MY HOUSE."
> "Yeah, sure we did."
> Scooby Doo and I bored again
> "You wanna play firefighter again?"

I'm pretty sure you can guess what happened next, although we turned around for a much shorter period of time. Only ten seconds, I think.

Anyways, should I tell another?
User avatar #58 to #53 - hammarhead (08/10/2013) [-]
always. always.
User avatar #59 to #58 - hammarhead (08/10/2013) [-]
I love hearing these. youshould invite other people, maybe make some OC. These are good.
User avatar #60 to #59 - thedudeistheman (08/11/2013) [-]
I don't think they'd do well as OC. More of a short story kind of thing.
User avatar #56 to #53 - georgeojffs (08/10/2013) [-]
sorry, i only just woke up, I love these more please
User avatar #57 to #56 - thedudeistheman (08/10/2013) [-]
No worries. I never expect anyone to comment right away.

Will most likely post another story tomorrow.
User avatar #54 to #53 - BlakHoleSun (08/09/2013) [-]
I don't know why noone else is commenting, these are great stories man.
User avatar #55 to #54 - thedudeistheman (08/09/2013) [-]
Thanks. I'll probably post another one tomorrow as well. Some people are probably offline.

The following events took place on the FunnyJunk server

> Connect to FJ server with friend (the one I won the Hunger Games with, we'll call him Scooby Doo)
> FJ server is notoriously laggy at this point, but whatever, we still play without much trouble
> Decide to create base of operations
> Get as far away from spawn as we possibly can
> Start digging into the side of a mountain, think it's less noticeable
> Don't use a door, just block up the entrance with dirt
> Plant seeds inside base to reduce need to go outside
> Start mining downwards
> Eventually create living area further underground, reduces the need to go up to the top of our base
> Soon realize we're quickly running out of wood, friend and I go back upstairs
> find all of our crops missing and chests looted (thank Notch it was just basic material like dirt and stone)
> There's a sign where the crops used to be
> It says "Black Midgets" (I don't remember if there was anything else written, but it can't be more important than that)
> Wonder why the Black Midgets never went down the mine shaft, but I don't question it too much
> Fear the Black Midgets for the rest of the game
> Block up entire upstairs area and permanently move underground
> **** , we still don't have any wood
> We get another friend to come on (Friend A, who was unjustly eliminated from the Hunger Games match)
> After a few deaths, he finally makes it to us, brings wood with him
> We live happily for probably an hour
> At one point during this time, Scooby Doo mines his way into an adjacent mine shaft
> Follows it, finds some other guy's loot, and steals most, if not all of it
> I get paranoid for two reasons
> 1 - He's going to find our mine shaft because we're so close together
> 2 - He's going to be super pissed that Scooby Doo stole all of his stuff, and he's going to seek revenge
> Scooby Doo dismisses the idea
> After about an hour, I'm still concerned, but not as much
> About 30 minutes later from that point, we all decide to go get pizza (we usually play
at someone's house, so we're all together when we play)
> Our underground living area was dug into the side of the mine shaft, so we block it up with dirt so it's not noticeable if you're just walking down the corridor
> Keep in mind that this is not the same side Scooby Doo dug into that separated us from the other guy's mine shaft
> Also place all valuable items into our inventories so they can't be looted while we're not online
> Maybe 30-45 minutes pass
> Scooby Doo and Friend A are playing other games
> I quickly log back on to see what materials we had in our chest
> There is a guy standing in our living area
> nope.jpeg
> Quickly log off, tell Scooby Doo that the guy whose stuff he stole was in our base
> Don't know if it was actually that guy, but who else would it have been, there's virtually no other way to know we were there
> Give it about two minutes before I log back on, figure this guy could do whatever he's gonna do in that time span and be out
> Log back on
> I'm dead
> Must've lagged out when logging off, he killed me while I was lagging
> Stole at least 20 diamonds, countless stacks of iron and gold, etc.
> Also broke our beds
> The coordinates we had were for the upstairs area we blocked off to avoid more Black Midget attacks
> We have no way of getting back
> Notch, why have you abandoned me

It's been a couple of months, and I still have not logged back on to the FJ server since that day.

So, what do you guys think? I have more stories to share if you guys are interested.
User avatar #48 to #39 - BlakHoleSun (08/08/2013) [-]
WE NEED ANOTHER!
User avatar #50 to #48 - thedudeistheman (08/09/2013) [-]
Question: Is there a space between "Hole" and "Sun" in your name? I don't think FJ allows that, but the formatting makes it look that way to me, which is why I listed your name twice in the comment, one with and one without a space.

Also, it seems like there will be another story tomorrow.
User avatar #51 to #50 - BlakHoleSun (08/09/2013) [-]
Ah, I've also noticed the "space". It is all one word. Also, great!
User avatar #52 to #51 - thedudeistheman (08/09/2013) [-]
Okay, I'll keep that in mind, thanks.

that was great. I love anarchy servers, I've got a few stories of my own. Even made a labrynth once.
User avatar #46 to #45 - thedudeistheman (08/08/2013) [-]
The FJ server is beyond any hope. You should share your stories as well.
User avatar #42 to #39 - zaxzwim ONLINE (08/08/2013) [-]
ANOTHER!

Nice, okay, so I can just mention people in a profile comment for those who want to see.
