Free Films To Download Legally

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Can you suggest the best way to use limewire?
    I want to download free films and music but want only those which the artists allow to download.
    Can it be used legally?

    • ANSWER:
      Agreed, Limewire is full of viruses, and since the uploader can change the file name easily, you never really know what you are getting unless you preview the filed during download.

      Rather try using a torrent client of sorts eg BitComet, and get your files from a torrent site. Most torrent sites allow for comments to be posted on all files and follow strict rules regarding content.

      Hope this helps.

  2. QUESTION:
    Which is a good site for downloading free educational films/documentaries about wildlife?
    Especially about elephants and African wildlife. I need them for class and my family enjoys them too, I need to be able to burn them onto a DVD. And I only want to do it legally, not violate any copyright laws. I may get some videos about animal slaughter and vegetarianism too at these sites as well, if they are available.

    • ANSWER:
      teachertube.com

  3. QUESTION:
    What do you use to legally download music?
    I'm talking about a good youtube video converter, or a good program that records the external audio output of your computer. I used to use Freecorder, but now they're all spammy. Any ideas?

    And before people get all butthurt about legality, downloading music this way isn't illegal unless you distribute it in any way.

    • ANSWER:
      You CAN legally download musical tracks and films of independent artists. The whole idea stands behind Open Content License.

      www.jamendo.com/en (+radio broadcast)

      vodo.net/

      www.youtube-mp3.org/ (stands for itself)

      audacity.sourceforge.net/ (free, open-source, cross-platform software for recording and editing sounds)

      www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html (free and open-source cross-platform multimedia player)

      Hey........, no points for you...

  4. QUESTION:
    What are some good foreign animated films?
    What are some good animated films that were made outside of the USA? I am wanting to watch them dubbed in English; even if it's anime.

    I relish watching Disney movies, for example, dubbed in foreign languages. I want to experience what it's like to see a film translated and slightly altered for a foreign audience. Especially if there is music involved.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated. Best answer will go to the person whose recommendations are most helpful.

    • ANSWER:
      Triplets of Belleville (not much dialogue though)
      Persepolis
      Osamu Tezuka's Metropolis
      Akira
      Grave of the Fireflies

      There is also an American movie called Sita Sings the Blues. It's an American perspective of an Indian tale--it kind of fits your theme. You can legally download it for free (or you can donate, if you wish).

  5. QUESTION:
    Where can I find FREE piano sheets or tabs for Ecstasy of Gold?
    I want the more preferred tabs or sheet music for Ecstasy of Gold without having to download any sketchy. Basically if i have to download something i dont want to have to download a program to go along with it.

    P.S Ecstasy of Gold is the song in The Good, Bad, and Ugly. It's also the intro song for Jackass 2 and alot of Metallica's intro when there playing live.

    • ANSWER:
      Nowhere.

      Ennio Morricone, the film's composer, is still alive, and as such no music of his is legally available for free.

  6. QUESTION:
    What are some of your favorite horror/slasher films?
    I love horror and slasher films - even the silly ones and remakes. I'm always looking for new ones to see - both good ones and campy/silly ones.

    What are some you've seen that you would recommend?

    • ANSWER:
      All 3 Evil Dead films (more the first two though)
      - If you liked them, Bubba Ho-Tep and maybe My Name is Bruce
      All 3 Re-animator films
      Braindead (called Dead Alive if you're in the US)
      Texas Chain Saw Massacre (original)
      Hellraiser 1 and 2
      Pet Sematary
      Audition
      Black Christmas (original)

      Some of them are a bit silly, but for more silliness, try Troll 2 or Satan's Little Helper.

      And if you're into older ones, you could try The House on Haunted Hill with Vincent Price. It's public domain now, so can be watched online or downloaded for free legally here: http://www.archive.org/details/The_House_On_Haunted_Hill

  7. QUESTION:
    Can i purchase films for the ipod video?
    I want to put proper films for example star wars. I don't know how to because i have gone to the apple store and cannot find anything. All i can see is music videos or pixar short videos...I have tried them but they are not movies. I saw in the argos catalogue a Pirates of the Caribbean picture from the movie on the ipod but cannot see anywhere to download/buy it.

    • ANSWER:
      UK iTunes do not include movies for download yet. there are a couple of ways that you can legally put your films on your iPod.

      if you have a DVD put it on you computer and convert it (there is software out there that is free, unfortuantley I don't know what it is) you must compress it as well.

      you can also try www.lovefilm.com they are a DVD rental company but you can also purchase films to download. only problem is that they're no cheaper than going to HMV and buying the DVD, then again there are better deals at the DVD shops anyway. I have downloaded my DVD films onto mine.

  8. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know where I can pay to download Spanish language films legally from the UK?
    I have been looking on itunes, but they don't have a very big selection. There are a few sites in the US, but they won't let you buy anything from the UK. I have tried doing a search in Spanish, but have not found anything yet! I just want to pay to watch or download the film on my laptop rather than have to buy a DVD every time! Thanks!!

  9. QUESTION:
    If I were to make an animated film using open source software, legally, what does that mean for me?
    -If I created an animated film from scratch through the use of an open source software:
    What does that mean for me in legal terms?
    What license can I attribute to it?
    Do I *have* to tell people what software I used?
    Do I *have* to allow others free access via downloads to that information for any purpose?
    Can I make money off of the film, legally?

    Any responses will be greatly appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      It depends on the particular open source license used - you need to read the exact terms of the license to be sure.

      Generally speaking, most open source *software* licenses, do not claim any ownership or control over work ("output") produced using the program - unless the work incorporates elements of the program itself.

      So for example, most open source licenses, will only place requirements on the output, if the output includes a listing of the program, or something like that.

  10. QUESTION:
    can anybody tell me what is the best web site to download movie or film?
    I want to download movies but most of the site require me to pay. Is there any website that i no need to pay to download the movie?

    • ANSWER:
      You mean to watch movies illegally that someone illegally bootlegged for free?

      Please.....if you can't illegally watch them, legally purchase them

  11. QUESTION:
    Can I use stock photos for a short film?
    I'm planning to make a short film that needs some photos. Can I use those in sites like sxc.hu?

    • ANSWER:
      It depends on the license agreement for the stock photo website. Most are royalty free and would allow you to publish in a film.

      Legally you cannot use a photo you find on the web with out the photographer's permission.

      Stock photography websites contain thousands of existing photographs that can be licensed for specific uses. A customer who uses stock photography instead of hiring a photographer can save time, effort and money. Typically publishers can either purchase exclusive rights to a single image or they can purchase a subscription of sorts. The subscriptions allow publishers to download a limited number of photos over a specified period of time.

      Stock photo websites allow webmasters, marketers and publishers to locate pictures for their marketing and promotional materials without the hassle of organizing a photo shoot. With copyright laws businesses must be very careful in using unlicensed photos.

      There are also risks to using "free" photographs. Many of the free websites contain collaborative works from multiple photographers and artists. While the websites attempt to monitor the images in their collections in violation of copyright laws, there are no guarantees. If you opt to use photographs or images from a free portal, it is important to keep this in mind.

      If you are looking for sources for stock photos with different and flexible license agreements give some of these a try.

      My favorite stock photo website is http://www.photo-wizard.net

      Here is where you can find some other inexpensive stock photo directories:

      http://www.small-business-software.net/stock-photography.htm

      Another site list can be found here:

      Goodluck

  12. QUESTION:

    Living in OZ without a PC. Would like to be able to buy films and shows online and watch them LEGALLY! What is the best site in terms of price, selection and efficiency.

    Thank you

    • ANSWER:

  13. QUESTION:
    What Programme/website for downloading films?
    What programmes or websites do people use to download free films? Can i just use Limewire or is it just for music files?

    • ANSWER:
      As 99% of current movies are copyright, that would be infringement, which is ILLEGAL

      You can watch free movies online LEGALLY, at 'Blinkbox' or 'Moviesalot' to name but two

      Search on Google for "free movies online" there are lots of sites

      Don't use Limewire at all, EVER, is my advice, there are too many corrupt and virus ridden files.

  14. QUESTION:
    Is there a program similar to iMovie that is available to download online for free legally?
    I need to make a movie for a project that incorporates clips, and I cannot get iMovie working.

    • ANSWER:

      http://free-download-films.com/

      you can download any other movie you'll EVER want to see. Regardless of whether that movie comes out next year or it came out last year or even 10 years ago. As soon as a movie is available for download you're able to access it.

  15. QUESTION:
    Do you know of where I can download movies legally from the internet for free?

    I would like to download gothika but other movies will do if I can't get hold of gothika.

    • ANSWER:
      This is the only place I know of that is legal and free to download from:

      http://archive.org/details/feature_films

      There are a few places you can go to stream movies free (and legally):

      http://www.hulu.com

      http://www.crackle.com

      Youtube used to offer a large number of free (recent & old) movies, too, but they seem to try and hide them from people, even though they're legally available to watch so far as I can tell:

      http://www.youtube.com/movies

      I last watched a movie on Youtube about 3 months ago.

      If you don't have a USA ip address - find a free VPN service, like VPNbook or there's others, to get a US IP to watch these shows. Maybe even a free proxy server would work like the one mentioned here:

      http://premiumaccount.info/1401/free-proxy-tool/

      I watch UK TV semi-frequently from the US, but I've never tried watching full movies from UK sites.

  16. QUESTION:
    Are there any websites where I can watch GOOD movies LEGALLY, WITHOUT DOWNLOADING and for FREE?
    All the Blockbuster Video Stores are closing down and my mom won't give in to Netflix. I just checked out Flixster and saw maybe two good films, but the majority of the watchable ones on there are really crappy B-movies.

    So can you suggest some reliable sites? And don't say Youtube.

    • ANSWER:
      i am using this site to watch movies and it is the legitimate out of all i have tried till now.

  17. QUESTION:

  18. QUESTION:
    How do you save a DVD to your lap top hard drive?
    Want to put some films on to save taking originals with me on a trip. Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      You must use a program that will a) Strip the DMR/Copy Protection and b) Copy it or Reencode it to your hard drive. (I paid for mine but the Free Version is good, too, the Free Download is at the bottom of the page, above the Wallpapers.)

      I use DVDFab HD Decrypter http://www.dvdfab.com/free.htm but there are other free programs that do similar jobs.

      As apposed to what almost everyone above has said, most Purchased DVD's have copy protection that won't allow you to just 'Copy' them. You must "Crack" them FIRST and then save them to your hard drive.

      After you crack them, you can do different things with the cracked DVD Files.

      1. Save them as an ISO, a FULL copy of the DVD, that will take up about 7GB of space on your hard drive.
      2. Encode the WHOLE THING to a different format, like .avi, .mkv, .mp4, etc.
      3. Encode just what you want into different formats, which allows you to fit the most content onto a single drive.

      You can learn how to do this on sites like Video Help http://www.videohelp.com or After Dawn http://www.afterdawn.com

      If it is LEGAL to back up your content is a subject that is in dispute and it depends upon your view of things.

      Did you purchase a piece of plastic that happens to contain copyrighted content or did you purchase a single use license to copyrighted content that happens to be contained on a disk?

      As it stands, it is currently legal to make a single user backup copy of your Legally Purchased content. It is in dispute if it is legal to break DMR and for things like eBooks, it is not legal to strip the copyright protection from even legally purchased files.

      Before I got DVD Fab, I used DVDDecrypter and DVDShrink to take a double layer, retail DVD and back it up to a single layer, 4.7gb DVD+R disk or file folder.

      After that, you can use a number of programs to convert the files to digital format.

      The "Average" size of a converted, standard length film is between 700mb to 1300mb and in that size, you can fit almost 1800 films onto a 2tb hard drive.

  19. QUESTION:
    Where can I find english or american movies with subtitles in english too?
    I'm Italian and I'd like to improve my english, so I thought to watch films in english with subtitles in english too, can you recommend me a website with this kind of movies which I'm looking for? thanks

    • ANSWER:
      I'm not sure about streaming movies with subtitles, unless you can find a website that is for deaf people or the hard of hearing.
      If you can legally download a movie it is fairly easy to find free subtitle files online, which you can then display while watching the movie in most computer video players.

      Corrections to your English (your English is pretty good already so I hope you don't mind). I would rephrase it this way:

      I'm Italian, and I'd like to improve my English, so I thought of watching films in English with subtitles in English too. Can you recommend a website to me which has the kind of movies I'm looking for? Thanks

  20. QUESTION:
    What are the advantages of a mac over a pc? Are they worth the difference in price?
    Am i going to be disappointed with a 13" macbook, if my home pc monitor is 20"?

    • ANSWER:
      The only advantage (and not much of one, read below and look at the links) of the Mac is being able to run OS X LEGALLY (PCs for the most part can do it illegally).. I would avoid the mac.

      PC=Variety of specs, options, quality, prices, vendors, support
      Mac=One vendor, limited options, still more expensive. Look below for more information..

      Today, Macs use a subset of PC hardware. Why spend extra to get the same CPU chips, graphics cards and OS X isn't as secure as you think..

      Don't believe the lies that Macs are better than PCs at graphics/animation.. Dreamworks Animation http://www.dreamworksanimation.com/ under studio click on Technology of Animation, an independent film maker I know uses PCs, a graphic artist I used to know uses PCs also.

      A number of PCs can also run OS X (Mac OS) http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=os+x+on+pc&btnG=Google+Search&aq=0&oq=os+x+on+ as well just that Apple makes it illegal in order to get Market share.. The reason why Mac can run native Windows is because it is using a subset of PC hardware,

      If you decide to buy a Mac for running Windows, you will still have to get the same virus/spyware protection, and run into the same issues as a regular PC.

      Now is a Mac worth buying for OS X?

      I say: NO... for the following reasons...

      ADVANTAGES WINDOWS :
      Aprox 90% of the market is Windows and most PCs have windows already pre-installed.
      1) Some websites require Internet Explorer, to run IE on Mac you really get ies4osx which is the Windows version of IE running really buggy and illegal if you don't have a legitimate copy of Windows.
      2) Supports more devices (printers and other things you hook into the computer).
      3) More business software/games
      4) Want the dock on OS X (Mac)? google/yahoo rocketdock, objectdoc.
      5) Used by businesses.

      ADVANTAGES LINUX :
      1) FREE (most versions are)
      2) Install software by either 1) Synaptic Package Manager, 2) Add/Remove 3) Opening a .deb or .rpm file (depending on distribution)
      2) Like the Mac OS X effects? go yahoo/google COMPIZ FUSION which can do any cool effect a Mac can do and many ore....

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3gkX9HDfEE (there is no flickering when you use it like on the video, not sure why the person has the flicker)
      3) Mac OS X Doc? google/yahoo Avant Window Navigator.Cairo Dock, http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x3rf5q_cairo-dock-mac-os-x-leopard-dock-on_tech

      4) It is FASTER/MORE SECURE to surf on the internet
      5) Some Windows programs work with Wnehq/Crossover (also avail on Mac, but why pay $$$)

      SECURITY
      Mac OS X was hacked in 2006 less than 30 minutes, and within 2 minutes in a contest in 2008, and within 10 seconds in 2009. In 2008, Linux and Vista were not hacked until another day when restrictions were lowered. Vista was next, and then Linux. In 2009 Windows 7 fell shortly after the Mac but Linux was unscathed.
      Macs are standardized with Cameras, if your Mac gets hacked, the hacker can turn on your camera with more ease.
      Please Note: All OS's have vulnerabilities.

      VIRUSES
      Mac OS X has viruses (and significantly on the rise), a friend of mine has a virused Mac. As more users use Macs, more viruses will come out for it. Especially when users think "they are safe".

      QUALITY/PROBLEMS
      Contrary to belief, Macs are not better quality. Apple also has been changing suppliers to try to "lower the price" and thus lowering quality. Even with the lower prices, Macs still cost more, they spend a higher percent of budget trying to make it look pretty, and marketing.

      Sample of problems: Overheating Macbooks, OS X- not responding to keyboard, some units with 16bit screens, etc. Apple statistics are misleading since Mac users with problem machines are more likely to go out and buy a new computer than PC users. Apple is lowering prices which means you can expect lower quality than in the past. Apple had switched the manufacturers producing parts. OS X also has problems slowing down.

      Repairs are more expensive than PCs since the IMac, Mac Mini are compact units, and Apple charges a premium for their services. Some repairs can be done by another repair service but the compact design of the computer causes problems.
      With an IMac, if the problem is with the monitor, the whole computer would have to be brought in.
      IMac and Mac mini lack expansion.

      PRICE
      A similar equipped PC is much cheaper to purchase than Mac. Lets use Dell (but you can compare with another PC Brand if you like)

      PLEASE NOTE: I compare Apple Mac's vs Dells best deal. If you really want an all-in one the Dell all-in-one has more ram, wireless keyboard and mouse and equivalent to 0 for free making the Imac still more expensive when you matching specs. Personally I don't think the All-in-Ones are a good choice, and consider them overpriced, lack expandability and repairs both more expensive and require the entire computer.

      PS: Apple knows that they need to make Macintosh look different than PC so all Macs except the Mac Pro will not have a tower option. Apple's low end lacks expandability but it makes the Mac "look different", if Mac had a tower for low-end, more people would realize the similarities between the two.

  21. QUESTION:
    How many books are there in the John Carter Series?
    I've recently discovered the film adaptation of the John carter of mars books and after enjoying the film decided I wanted to give reading the books a go, I really got into the books but I'm finding it hard to figure out what to read!

    I downloaded "Barsoom: John carter 1-7" on the ibook app for my ipad which as the name suggests contains the first 7 books. how many books are there in total and if possible could I get a list of the books and their titles in chronological order?

    Thanks for the help!

    • ANSWER:
      There are eleven books in the Barsoom series (John Carter) written by Edgar Rice Burroughs. The eleventh book is a novella collection containing two stories.

      1. Princess of Mars
      2. The Gods of Mars
      3. The Warlords of Mars
      4. Thuvia, Maid of Mars
      5. The Chessmen of Mars
      6. The Mastermind of Mars
      7. A Fighting Man of Mars
      8. Swords of Mars
      9. Synthetic Men of Mars
      10. Llana of Gathol
      11. John Carter of Mars - containing 'John Carter and the Giant of Mars' (John Coleman Burroughs) and 'Skeleton Men of Jupiter'

      It's worth noting that at least the first title, 'Princess of Mars', is out of copyright and therefore you can get it legally for free.

  22. QUESTION:
    What is the best choice for a laptop?
    I'm getting ready to start my freshmen year of college and need to decide between a PC or a Mac. All of my friends own PCs so they're pretty biased. Are there any Mac users that can tell me the pros and cons of having a mac?

    • ANSWER:
      PC would be the better choice..
      The only Pro for the Mac: LEGALLY run OSX (PCs can do it illegally) [links provided to back up facts]

      PC=Variety of specs, options, quality, prices, vendors, support
      Mac=One vendor, limited options, still more expensive. Look below for more information..

      Today, Macs use a subset of PC hardware. Why spend extra to get the same CPU chips, graphics cards and OS X isn't as secure as you think..

      Don't believe the lies that Macs are better than PCs at graphics/animation.. Dreamworks Animation http://www.dreamworksanimation.com/ under studio click on Technology of Animation, an independent film maker I know uses PCs, a graphic artist I used to know uses PCs also.

      A number of PCs can also run OS X (Mac OS) http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=os+x+on+pc&btnG=Google+Search&aq=0&oq=os+x+on+ as well just that Apple makes it illegal in order to get Market share.. The reason why Mac can run native Windows is because it is using a subset of PC hardware,

      If you decide to buy a Mac for running Windows, you will still have to get the same virus/spyware protection, and run into the same issues as a regular PC.

      Now is a Mac worth buying for OS X?

      I say: NO... for the following reasons...

      ADVANTAGES WINDOWS :
      Aprox 90% of the market is Windows and most PCs have windows already pre-installed.
      1) Some websites require Internet Explorer, to run IE on Mac you really get ies4osx which is the Windows version of IE running really buggy and illegal if you don't have a legitimate copy of Windows.
      2) Supports more devices (printers and other things you hook into the computer).
      3) More business software/games
      4) Want the dock on OS X (Mac)? google/yahoo rocketdock, objectdoc.
      5) Used by businesses.

      ADVANTAGES LINUX :
      1) FREE (most versions are)
      2) Install software by either 1) Synaptic Package Manager, 2) Add/Remove 3) Opening a .deb or .rpm file (depending on distribution)
      2) Like the Mac OS X effects? go yahoo/google COMPIZ FUSION which can do any cool effect a Mac can do and many ore....

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3gkX9HDfEE (there is no flickering when you use it like on the video, not sure why the person has the flicker)
      3) Mac OS X Doc? google/yahoo Avant Window Navigator.Cairo Dock, http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x3rf5q_cairo-dock-mac-os-x-leopard-dock-on_tech

      4) It is FASTER/MORE SECURE to surf on the internet
      5) Some Windows programs work with Wnehq/Crossover (also avail on Mac, but why pay $$$)

      SECURITY
      Mac OS X was hacked in 2006 less than 30 minutes, and within 2 minutes in a contest in 2008, and within 10 seconds in 2009. In 2008, Linux and Vista were not hacked until another day when restrictions were lowered. Vista was next, and then Linux. In 2009 Windows 7 fell shortly after the Mac but Linux was unscathed.
      Macs are standardized with Cameras, if your Mac gets hacked, the hacker can turn on your camera with more ease.
      Please Note: All OS's have vulnerabilities.

      VIRUSES
      Mac OS X has viruses (and significantly on the rise), a friend of mine has a virused Mac. As more users use Macs, more viruses will come out for it. Especially when users think "they are safe".

      QUALITY/PROBLEMS
      Contrary to belief, Macs are not better quality. Apple also has been changing suppliers to try to "lower the price" and thus lowering quality. Even with the lower prices, Macs still cost more, they spend a higher percent of budget trying to make it look pretty, and marketing.

      Sample of problems: Overheating Macbooks, OS X- not responding to keyboard, some units with 16bit screens, etc. Apple statistics are misleading since Mac users with problem machines are more likely to go out and buy a new computer than PC users. Apple is lowering prices which means you can expect lower quality than in the past. Apple had switched the manufacturers producing parts. OS X also has problems slowing down.

      Repairs are more expensive than PCs since the IMac, Mac Mini are compact units, and Apple charges a premium for their services. Some repairs can be done by another repair service but the compact design of the computer causes problems.
      With an IMac, if the problem is with the monitor, the whole computer would have to be brought in.
      IMac and Mac mini lack expansion.

  23. QUESTION:
    Can i download foreign movies for free?
    so i heard that there is no international copyright. so if a movie was never released in america, it has no american copyright. Right? If this is true, does this mean that anyone could legally download the films as long as they were never released in america? i know that Pirating is for copyrighted works, but if they are foreign do they still apply to our laws? i tried to look this up but could not find anything.
    and your source? i was hoping to get some proof.

    • ANSWER:
      Although there is no "international copyright", under the Bern Convention, anything copyrighted (i.e., created or published) in one county is required to be treated as copyrighted in any other country that is under the Convention (i.e., in the "Berne Union"). In other words, you can certainly be sued in the USA for infringing copyright of a foreign work copyrighted in some other Berne Union country, and vice versa.

      Also, for compliance with the Uruguay Round of Agreements, the USA modified the US laws in 1994 to actually "restored" US copyright for "foreign works" that had been published in the USA prior to 1978 without the necessary "formalities" (i.e., copyright notice and US renewal filings), provided they were still copyrighted in their "country of origin", thus giving "better" copyright protection to foreign works than to US works published in the same period. 17 USC § 104A.

  24. QUESTION:
    Name The movies Which are free to download on the internet?
    Name all the movies you can that has no copyright restrictions to be downloaded.

    Any Old movies is ok too. Only Legal Movies that are free to download.

    please DO NOT PUT ILLEGAL STUFF. I DONT DO ILLEGAL DOWNLOADS AT ALL. ONLY LEGAL.

    • ANSWER:
      Many old films are in the public domain and can be downloaded from www.archive.org. If you google "public domain movies" I'm sure you could find some other sites, too.

      There are films available for free streaming legally at www.hulu.com, but most other "streaming" sites are illegal.

      Edit: "John Crisp, TOP CONTRIBUTOR" is wrong and clearly inexperienced in the realm of copyright. Movies released after a certain amount of time enter the public domain and can be downloaded legally. For example, Night of the Living Dead is in the public domain and can be watched and downloaded legally.

  25. QUESTION:
    i got a zune and want to put video on it but have no money and no dvd on my computer. any sugestions?
    I bought a zune recently and want to put some movies on it. I have no money to buy any online, no dvd player on my computer, and basicly need someone to tell me the best site or free program to download from.

    • ANSWER:
      Commercial films (i.e., those with copyrights) are, obviously, not available online (legally). However, there are plenty of sites with public domain movies. Do a Google search for "public domain movies." You'll find many.

  26. QUESTION:
    How can I watch movies when they come out in the theaters at home. legally.?
    A while ago I was watching MTV cribs, this person had a home theater and he was able to watch movies the same day that they came out in the theater at his home.I think he was paying a monthly fee. It wasn't apple tv or anything like that. I've tried watching movies on those free wed sites, the quality is really poor and they are not legal. I been trying to find something like that on the web for days ,but I haven luck. Does any body knows where to I can find something like this? thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      There are no such offering of a monthly charge to see current movie theatre features, even on a professional level from major studios. What that person is viewing is illegal downloads of streaming movies which are often of poor quality since the original master is an in theatre pirated video which has been uploaded onto an off-U.S. shore file sharing server.

      No matter what the quality of the film that is streamed, these pirated operations are totally illegal and are subject to severe civil and criminal penalties once they are found and prosecuted.

  27. QUESTION:
    Where can I find free background music for video/film projects?
    All I want is to find free instrumental stuff (classical, electronic, hard rock, soft sounds, sound effects) underneath clips I'm putting together to upload onto YouTube. Don't want to "steal" anyone's stuff without permission...just want easy-to-find public domain material or creative commons stuff without running around all over the place. Would like to find sites where you can listen first without downloading. Thanks in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      Nothing really polishes a podcast or video more than background music or theme music. In the music world, these music segments are referred to as intros and extros. While many enjoy streaming Internet Audio and recording songs they like over the Internet, these songs cannot legally be used in a podcast.

      Podsafe music refers to music specifically for podcasters or video publishers. The music is licensed in such a way that podcasters can purchase a license to include the music in a podcast without incurring additional fees or expenses. In order to use traditional music that is heard on the radio in a podcast, podcasters may have to pay royalties for each time the song is played. Some music files licensed under public domain or creative commons are exempt from royalties and these songs are available for use in a podcast, but generally when searching for music to include in a podcast it is probably best to stick with music that is specifically designated as "podsafe".

  28. QUESTION:
    how do i start downloading music on ipoddownloadspro.com?
    i dont see any links or anything and i just payed for my account and downloaded all the software.

    • ANSWER:
      you've more than likely just been scammed into paying for software that is available for free (presumably limewire/frostwire/a bittorrent client), but it is still illegal to use that software (whatever it is) for downloading copyrighted content/music/films:
      [quote]

      You will find all of the latest tools for accessing the largest file networks on the planet. Members have access to the necessary tools to search and download all kinds of files for your iPod or computer.
      [/quote]

      by all means contact them about the 'satisfaction guarantee':

      http://ipoddownloadspro.com/contact.asp

      but i can tell you that they aren't providing anything more legal than any piece of filesharing software out there and mcafee's site advisor doesn't have good things to say:

      http://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/ipoddownloadspro.com

      legitimate, legal, trustworthy sites do NOT operate on a one-time-fee-download-as-much-as-you-want basis because they would not be making enough to pay the artists and movie companies the royalties they're legally entitled to.

  29. QUESTION:
    What is your motivation for illegally downloading a movie online?
    This question is genuine and is not trying to pass judgment. It's simply to answer a question that has been bothering me for some time.

    I am in my mid 20's and I have never watched a film online. I wouldn't even know how to go about doing it. I guess I'm wondering if all this online piracy is because people don't want have to go to their car drive to a Blockbuster and rent the film? Is it because people don't have the money to pay for a rental? Is it because the concept of ethical behavior has been so watered down, that people no longer consider it stealing?

    So, if you do download them or stream them, or whatever, why exactly do you do it?

    And if you don't do it, why have you refrained from partaking in the wave of illegal movie downloading?

    • ANSWER:
      ...being the passionate movie lover that I am, the only true place to see films, is on the motion picture screen...bigger than life; in that cathedral, the film being featured has my complete 100% attention, and most worth of my time, attention and investment.

      I DO watch film on video at home, of course, having an estimated film collection of something in the arena of 13,000 titles...70 to 75 percent of which are original, personally purchased treasures; to me, collecting films is not unlike collecting art.....it's just worth more to me, at least personally; in this way, I have further invested myself into the film, and afforded any respect and appreciation deserved of the film.

      Candidly, I HAVE 'duped' or acquired copies of a great number of films in my collection, but this is specifically because they have long not been officially released, and yet have still been made available through various covert venues. If I was savvy to the concept of downloading films, it would be for that very reason, and that very reason alone why I would do it.....that someone online has the film I would be looking for, which hasn't been officially or legally released. Bear in mind, I'm talking about rarities and classics, which might be on just about every interested film collector's want list, and have been long sought after.....not just so I can have a scot-free copy of "Spider-Man 3", months before it's official video release.

      ...again, it stems right back to the attention, respect and appreciation deserved of the film.

      Point in case, one of the films, which has been on my want list for years, is the sci-fi chiller from 1974, "Chosen Survivors"; I remember seeing the film at the drive-in theatre, a long way back, and when video became a collectable venue, I knew that one day, I would have to have the film in my collection. About three years ago, I happened upon a collector connection in Europe, who had the film dubbed in Swedish, but had English subtitles; it was a third or fourth generation copy, and barely watchable, but damned if I didn't have the film in my collection, finally....a sense of personal accomplishment. The good thing about this particular film, as with just about every film eventually, is that in October, Fox Video is finally releasing the film commercially. Like a collector of fine art, devotedly seeking out a true blue collectable, and temporarily settling for an acceptable substitute, we're talking satisfaction finally sated...barring more than a little patience.

      It's also a matter of respect and appreciation for the film maker, the film making process, and the hundreds and hundreds of people responsible for putting out the product, irregardless of how good or bad the film is; knowing the overall process of producing a film, and the hard work expounded, as a result of the production of that film, I would be most hard-pressed in finding satisfaction in downloading or copying a film, which is know to be, or is readily anticipated to be available.

  30. QUESTION:
    Where can I watch "How To Be" online?
    Does anyone know where I can watch "How To Be"? It's a UK indie film staring Robert Pattinson and I really want to see it. Any thoughts?

    • ANSWER:
      i got lucky and found a link for the movie and you can download it for free from this file sharing site:

      http://www.gigasize.com/get.php?d=3fk9l21ywrf

      someone recorded the movie off that IFC channel. quality is pretty decent.

      -its about 700MB mp4
      -its a zip file so you'll need to unzip it using win rar or something similar
      -ignore the "_macrosx folder" and just click on the main mp4 file "how to be"

      i totally recommend it if you cant wait for the dvd
      i live in australia so i probably wont be able to see it (legally) for ages!

      (by the way, it takes about 15 secs for the movie to get started, and the annoying recording timing thingy on the screen at the start goes away after the opening credits)

    What Filming Software Should I Download For PC Gaming?
    Hi,
    I would like to record me gaming on my laptop so i can post the videos on YouTube, but I don't know what software I should download. I have a built in webcam with a built in mic on my laptop. For my gaming, I want to be able to record what's happening on the screen, the sounds from the computer (<-- this one i can do without) my face, and my voice. I've looked at CamStudio, but I don't know if it meets those requirments. Could someone please either confirm it does, or recommend another software that does all of these things? (Preferably a LEGALLY free download)

  34. QUESTION:
    Downloading movies for free and legally?
    I was wondering if there are web sites where you can download movies for free without breaking the law?

    Would using web site like this one be considered breaking a law? - http://stagevu.com. They do have disclaimer saying that if content posted for download illegally, they would remove it, but I still would like to check with someone.

    • ANSWER:
      There are legitimate free downloads. Usually it is either stuff that is in public domain like archive.org or making money from advertising like hulu.com.

      Thank you very VERY much for respecting the life and livelihoods of artists that work in the film industry.

  35. QUESTION:
    what are the good sites to use when downloading films legally and free?

    • ANSWER:
      Don't think its possible for there to be such a site that you can get the films 'free' from legally, any that say free normally are referring to there being no download charge but these sites require a paid membership.

  36. QUESTION:
    Can I get/buy the DVD of any movie before it has released ?
    I don't think I can even download any movie (Hollywood or Bollywood) before the movie has released !

    • ANSWER:
      No. At least not legally.

      Most movies have a specific schedule. They start out in movie theatres, then come out on DVD, then come out on pay TV, and finally wind up on free TV.

      The studios don't want to change it, because they're afraid that if people could get the DVD early, they might not bother to go to a theatre to see the film. And Hollywood makes billions from ticket sales to movie theatres.

  37. QUESTION:
    Where can I watch free movies on iPad ?
    Other than YouTube where else can I watch?

    • ANSWER:
      Sandra, in answer to your question "Where can I watch free movies on iPad", I have 3 recommendations for you.

      DOWNLOAD FROM THE INTERNET MOVIE ARCHIVE

      1) You can download free movies for your iPad from the International Internet Movie Archive at archive.org. These are movies which have fallen into the public domain because their copyrights have lapsed.

      Now, true, there are a lot of mediocre films here, but if you sift through them, you can find some real gems among the some odd 500,000 movies they have.

      And they're all available in mp4 format, which is what your iPad likes to play. The file sizes of the mp4s are relatively small, too, which is good for the limited space of your iPad.

      But the quality of these downloads are not like DVD quality, so that's an issue.

      To download these direct to your iPad, may I suggest the free version of the Download Manager Pro (LITE) app.

      WATCH FREE MOVIES ON THE IPAD FROM iTUNES U

      2) Another little-known place to download free movies for the iPad is iTunes U.

      Go into iTunes and on the top menu bar, click iTunes U. Then search for free movie collections.

      Now, the free movies you find here are not Hollywood movies or theatrical features. These are smaller movies that never got distributed, but you can still find some good films here.

      DOWNLOAD UNLIMITED MOVES FROM A MOVIES CLUB

      3) This is not an entirely free option, because you have to pay a membership fee, but you can join a "movies club" where you don't have to pay monthly fees or per-movie charges.

      Out of their licensed movie library, you can download unlimited movies and watch as many and as much as you want. These are Hollywood movies in DVD quality that are entirely legal to watch.

      Just be sure to go with a movie club that provides its movies in mp4 format so that you know it will play on your iPad. The best kind of movie club to go with is one that will let you download or stream the movies, let you play them on all your devices (iPad, computer, TV), and that will allow you to burn them to DVD, too.

      Again, the downside is that its not an entirely free option, since there's a one-time membership fee, but you're getting unlimited movies legally without having to pay for each movie.

      DO NOT DOWNLOAD MOVIES FROM ILLEGAL MOVIE SHARING SITES

      Finally, Sandra, I would not recommend downloading from one of these illegal movie sharing sites. The government is really cracking down on these and shutting them down right and left.

      Plus, most of the movie files on these sites won't even play on your iPad. You would have to download the movie and then convert it with conversion software. That takes a lot of time and extra disc space, and you wouldn't be able to download them directly to your iPad and play them.

  38. QUESTION:
    Is downloading films off the internet a sin for a christian?

    • ANSWER:
      Gee Nathan,

      Do you really have to ask this question?

      If you download a pirated version of a DVD or anything like that that is not legally down-loadable for free then you are breaking the law and that is stealing.

      People spend many months and millions of dollars making movies and you are stealing from them and the producers of the movie - it is not good enough to say that they are making millions .... it is still stealing and that is WRONG - whether you are a christian or not.

      regards Mike D

      PS I just read Steve Watkins comments - I am appalled by his attempt to justify stealing and then to blame God by saying if he gives you the opportunity then you can use it - a little stealing is still stealing - go ask you Priest/Minister or Pastor what he thinks - I am staggered by Steve's comments - I wonder if he downloads pirated versions too?

    Downloading The Nightmare Before Christmas DVD?
    I want to download The Nightmare Before Christmas on DVD but cant seem to find out how...could someone send me a link and how to do it?I have a windows xp and it does have a burner on it.

    • ANSWER:
      You can't download a DVD! If you mean you want to download the movie and not have a DVD you can buy or rent here:

      http://www.amazon.com/Tim-Burtons-Nightmare-Before-Christmas/dp/B003SI9WYG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1330296365&sr=8-1

      If you mean you want a DVD you can buy it here:

      http://www.amazon.com/Nightmare-Before-Christmas-William-Hickey/dp/B00447L4JG/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1330296365&sr=8-2

      Don't think "Oh, downloading it for free won't hurt." Yes, yes it will. Think "hey, they're rich and it's not a real job so who cares?" The movie is 75 minutes long. At peak production of TNBC, one week of work yielded 60 seconds film. Don't be a jackass and criminal (yes, it is a crime) just because you don't want to pay the 2 bucks to get it legally.

  41. QUESTION:
    Where can I find full footage of game film (NBA, NFL, etc.) availble for download?
    I'd like to download tapes of full games for both NFL & NBA. I don't think YouTube allows you to download the video.

    • ANSWER:
      Most professional organizations (if not all) do not legally allow you to download their footage for free due to copyright issues.

  42. QUESTION:
    does anyone know where I can download previous episodes of TV shows?
    ...like Life on Mars or the first season of desperate housewifes? Ive tried Limewire(does not have UK tv shows or only has the current season of US tv shows, bittorrent(cant work out how to use it!) and youtube (only has clips not the full episodes).
    Thanks
    PS the downloads should also be free!

    • ANSWER:
      Life on Mars is a great show..... I can't wait for the second series to start next Tuesday.

      The BBC haven't launched iPlayer yet, but when they do (in May hopefully) you should be able to download BBC programmes like Life on Mars for free and legally. At the moment there is also Channel 4's 4OD (4 on demand) some shows are free and others you will have to pay for... So I'm guessing you'll be able to get the latest episodes of Desperate Housewives and Ugly Betty there.

      Illegal downloads of these copyrighted shows would be from torrents.... Have a look at torrentspy, isohunt, piratebay
      There's a few programmes which will help you download these once you've found the torrent, try utorrent, bitcomet, bittorrent.... Actually some films are currently trialing a legal download via Bittorrent or so I have just found out from wikipedia...

      But for legal free downloads they'll be the BBC's iPlayer (out in May) and Channel 4's 4 On Demand for those two specific programmes you're looking for....

  44. QUESTION:
    Where can I download free films?
    How long does it take and what is the quality like ?

    • ANSWER:
      Someone else mentioned bittorrent: my favourite site for Bittorrent files is ISO Hunt, which connects hundreds of thousands of files being shared. However ,there may be copyright, ie legal issues with this, and so I am not suggesting you engage in any illegal filesharing! You can download a backup of nything you already legaly own, and that is all I suggest!

      You can also try Atom Films, which is tons of short amateur work, and I've always found very funny stuff on there, tho' truthfully I've never tried ownloading from there since its there all the time.

      There are a couple other web sites and I'm sorry I don't recall the names, but they do offer legally downloadable old movies and TV [out of copyright], if you're into classic stuff.

  45. QUESTION:
    Sites for free music to use in a video (background)?
    Do you guys know of any sites where I could download free music (legally), to use as a background track for a short film for school. It's for a course, and I would be presenting it. Also, the videos might be saved to the school's site or some other database. Any possible sites where this would be possible?
    I'm talking about the kind of music that has the kind of licence that it can be used in my purposes.

    I'm thinking of basic normal guitar/other instrumental tracks. Thanks for any help.

    • ANSWER:

  46. QUESTION:
    Is downloading music from LimeWire legal?
    I know this question has been asked a million times but I want to ask for myself. I just want to download songs, real songs that you can buy but are free on the program, for my OWN personal use. I do not use it to sell music.

    • ANSWER:
      No, downloading songs that cost money on other sites for free through LimeWire is illegal. It is the equivalent of stealing a product from someone trying to make their living by producing that song.

      Imagine if you had put alot of effort into finishing a school project. You're really glad at how it turned out. You get to school, and it ends up that someone who just downloaded a very similar project gets a better grade. Wouldn't you be pissed off?

      So no, LimeWire music is not legal. Completely illegal.

      As an added note, even if you have legally purchased the song on iTunes or a CD with said song, downloading an "archival" copy off the internet as a backup is technically illegal too. This goes for all media content, including songs, films, and video game ROMs.

  47. QUESTION:
    Is there any point downloading Frostwire?
    Just wondering, since Limewire is being sued and shutdown, will the same thing happen to Frostwire soon? Is this like a big "crackdown" on all these music sharing sites or is this a rare one off?
    Also, will I personally get into trouble for using these sites?

    • ANSWER:
      bill m - how do you work that one out ?

      frostwire is open source, which means that anyone can change the code,
      frostwire is released under gpl, general public licence - so its free to use, modify, break, whatever you or i want to do with it,

      if a killbit was added to frostwire - how would that work on linux ?
      anyone is free to modify the code, so you just delete or modify the file holding the killbit code

      frostwire is a fork of limewire - but its a different program,

      frostwire (and limewire) do not connect to sites, they connect to the gnutella network - its a separate part of the whole internet,
      it's not a one off - its happened before and it will happen again,

      its not illegal to use file sharing programs, most linux operating systems are recommended to be distributed this way, personal, home-made music and films can be legally distributed this way, free, open source programs can be distributed this way

      its copyrighted music and films thats illegal - people get caught and heavily fined,
      you may think there is not much chance it will be you - but i bet the people who have been caught thought the same thing,

      one interesting thing is, if you download from sites then they have your ip address - they have to have it, or where do they send the file ?
      a letter can only get where it needs to be with an address,

      limewire must hold your address - its just a matter of time
      (if you believe that limewire is a site)

      download illegal files and take your chance

  48. QUESTION:
    Can I use a music piece by Johann Sebastian Bach recorded in 1951 for my short film?
    I was able to download some Bach for free since it's a public domain and the copyright of the recording from 1951 has expired. I was just wondering if I could also legally use it in a short film?
    This is the recording: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iSEA0q4IRYM

    thanks

    • ANSWER:
      All recordings are still under copyright - period - unless there are special circumstances. If you use public domain music, and YOU play it - that is fine. If you use someone else' recoding - no. So - the composition is public domain, the recording is NOT - you cannot use the recording. How do you KNOW - or think you know - that the copyright from 1951 has expired? Have you researched this correctly - or are you just guessing, becasue you WANT this?

  49. QUESTION:
    Where can I legally pay for and download movies in Canada?
    Every place that I have found that allows a person to pay nominal prices for and download movies is only available to Americans in the United States. Where can I download movies inexpensively and legally in Canada? Note that I already know about iTunes, but that is a bit on the expensive side.
    By the way, I need them in HD.
    CinemaNow is not an option for me.
    Free things tend to be illegal.

      Happy Watching!! :-)

      Edit: LOL. Actually, I don't watch many movies, I just know where to FIND them.
      I don't think that you can watch Inception legally right now. :-(

    How much money do I need to go to Sheffield,England for a week?
    I'm planing to go there to visit my Girlfriend, I need to know about airplane, Car hire, Hotel, and food, And for a few Dates kinda fancy but just for a week, At least give me an estimate please :DD I live in Mission, TX

    • ANSWER:
      Fly to Manchester, there's a direct train from the airport to Sheffield city centre. Look at www.thetrainline.com for ticket prices, as they vary depending on time of day and ticket restrictions.

      Sheffield has pretty good public transport, so I wouldn't bother hiring a car unless you're planning to do a lot of travelling.

      There are lots of city centre hotels, including international chains like Novotel, Hilton and Jury's Inn. I recommend going to www.laterooms.com, www.booking.com or www.lastminute.com to get the best prices unless you're in a loyalty scheme. Expect to pay around £50 per night for 3* up to £90+ for 5*, but you may get better deals as prices are volatile.

      Not sure what you want to know about food, but there are lots of restaurants in Sheffield. Big chains like Zizzi and Waggamama are clustered around Leopold Square, while London Road is great for all kinds of ethnic food and Eccleshall Road has smart pizzerias, tapas and Indian restaurants. Prices vary massively, but a 3 course meal in a decent mid-range restaurant will be around about £30 each, plus drinks.

      Dates: depends what you and she like to do! There are two theatres - the Crucible and the Lyceum theatres are in the city centre, check out www.sheffieldtheatres.co.uk for listings. There's also an Odeon cinema (which is a bit tatty, to be honest) and the Showroom cinema which shows a mix of art house, foreign and mainstream films - www.showroomworkstation.org.uk

      Bigger cinemas, bowling, laser quest and more restaurants are at Centertainment (www.valley-leisure.co.uk), which is a 5-10 minute tram ride from the city centre.

      Sheffield has lots of parks, the Botanical Gardens just off Eccleshall Road are worth a visit for a romantic stroll and picnic if the weather's nice (and it has a pleasant cafe if not!) and are free to visit. At the far end of Eccleshall Road is Endcliffe Park - you can walk through this, cross a quiet road into another park and walk right out into the Peak District. There are also regular trains and buses out into the Peaks if you like walking or pretty villages - Grindleford is a good stop. Again, thetrainline.com will give you rail prices.

      Hope you have a good time!

  3. QUESTION:
    Can the Sony SLT-A33 be used for astrophotography?
    I was considering purchasing a new SLR camera and I've been interested in the Sony SLT series of cameras, mainly because of their high fps rate. I wasn't planning on using it purely for AP, but I was wondering if it could be used for AP at all because the actual SLT tech only allows 70% of the light to reach the sensor. Would this make the A33 a poor choice for AP? Anyone ever used it for AP? Any suggestions for AP SLR cameras in the same price range?

    • ANSWER:
      Don't anything about that camera.

      However, a few things to think about -
      1) The camera has a native limit of 30 seconds. which is not unusual for DSLR's, but you will need a shutter controller like this to run the camera for minutes at a time -

      http://astronomyonline.org/solarsystem/solarsafety.asp

      2) You have zero need for auto anything when it comes to AP. See if you can turn off stuff like the autofocus, exposer control and anything else that sucks up power.

      3) Speaking of power, see about either getting more batteries, running an external power supply or other power source. If you use this camera in cold weather, the batteries are going to drain quickly.

      4) Noise. All DSLR's add electronic noise to the image. And it gets worse with the increase of exposer time. The effect is called "Amp Glow" and is caused by the CCD element itself emitting light. The only way to see how bad it is for this camera is to try taking a picture with the shutter cap on for minutes at a time.

      http://www.darkerview.com/CCDProblems/ampglow.php

      And here are some other imager defects that are common to DSLR's -

      http://www.deepfield.at/articles/ccd/

      The other source for noise is the ISO setting. Which for DSLR's is the gain set on the imaging element on it looks like film grain. The higher the ISO (like 1600), the noisier the frame looks. I usually shoot at around 200 to 800 ISO on my Canon 400D for best results.

      5) Shutter life. All DSLR's and especially the lower end ones, have a limited shutter life. sometimes as low as 10,000 cycles. This may seem like a lot, but you can burn through dozens of shutter cyces in a night, just getting things like the telescope focused, setting up the image, timing and so on.

      So of this can be removed, if the camera has some sort of Live View function. This keeps the shutter open so you can do the focusing and so on.

      6) Dark frame subtraction. With the increase of shutter time and ISO, the image does collect a bunch of noise. Most DSLR's have a function called auto dark frame or auto noise reduction. What this does is the camera takes a picture without tripping the shutter - for the same length of time that the main image was taken, then the two frames are subtracted. This is a significant reduction of camera noise, but is time consuming. Example - If your image is 60 seconds long, you'll need a dark frame of 60 seconds as well. this is two minutes of active camera time. which leads to...

      7) Image stacking. Take lots of shorter exposers and let the software sum up the whole mess. the nice thing about this is that instead of just taking one picture for 30 minutes, you take 40 at 5 minutes each. What this means is that at some point, you will have something get in the way (airplane, bumping the scope, clouds, power failure) of getting the picture. so instead of wasting one, 30 minute picture, you might only loose one, 5 minute picture.

      Programs that doe this spiffy function -

      http://www.astronomie.be/registax/

      http://deepskystacker.free.fr/english/index.html

      And there so much more, but this is getting way to long winded already. For more information -

  5. QUESTION:
    Anything to see in and around Columbus, OH ?
    We might be visiting Columbus, Ohio sometime in July from one of the southern states. So would like to know if there is anything to look around this place ( around 150-250 miles of columbus is ok)

    • ANSWER:
      Almost all of Ohio is within 200 miles of Columbus, which is located in the center of the state. This includes Cleveland, Cincinnati, Dayton, Toledo and Akron.

      Cleveland, Cincinnati, Dayton and Toledo all have art museums superior to those of Columbus, as all four of these cities were leading cities during the industrial revolution and were immensely wealthy for most of the 20th century relative to Columbus. Cleveland's art museum, currently undergoing a 0 million expansion, is considered one of the five best in the nation. It still has free admission and contains one of the best collections of Japanese art outside of Japan (this collection may not be on display due to construction).

      The Columbus (recently ranked #1 by USA Travel Guide; you can get within several feet of a manatee) and Cincinnati zoos are considered among the ten best in the nation, and the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo also is excellent, with the nation's largest primate collection and a top ten zoo exhibit in its Rain Forest building.

      http://www.wrsol.com/usatravelguide/the-top-10-zoos-in-america/

      Cedar Point on Lake Erie is the Roller Coaster Capital of the World and has been ranked as the world's best amusement park for ten straight years by Amusement Today. It also has a great beach where football's forward pass was perfected by Knute Rockne and Gus Dorias in 1913.

      http://lake-erie.com/

      Nearer Columbus is Dayton, the aviation history mecca of the world. It was in Dayton that the Wright brothers perfected and flew the first airplane. The Wright Flyer hanging in the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C., was only a powered glider. The first real airplane is lovingly preserved at Dayton's Carillon Historical Park. Try to visit on a Sunday to hear the Deeds Carillon.

      http://carillonpark.org/tourthepark.html

      http://files.asme.org/ASMEORG/Communities/History/Landmarks/5661.pdf

      Dayton also hosts the largest and oldest military air museum in the world -- the U.S. Air Force Museum. It's spectacular and includes in its collection most presidential airplanes, which visitors can walk through, and everything from WW! fighters to B-52s, stealth fighters, atomic bomb casings, missiles, etc. Allow at least a day just to quickly walk through this mammoth museum, which contains billions of dollars of historical artifacts. Admission to the museum is free, but visitors must pay to enter the Imax theater.

      And don't miss visiting the Hoffman Prairie Flying Field, just a few miles from the Air Force Museum. Surprisingly few Americans can say that they stood where the first airplane was perfected and flown. The federal government has done a great job of preserving several Wright Brother historical sites in Dayton.

      There are several other IMO superb attractions relatively near Columbus:

      1) Malabar Farm State Park is both a working farm and a spotlight into an historical chapter of American film history -- home of a prominent novelist and screenplay author and a Hollywood getaway frozen in its mid-20th century splendor.

      http://www.bookthink.com/0078/78brom1.htm

      http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/8825/malabar_farm_an_ohio_treasure_and_lovely.html?cat=16

      2) The Tecumseh outdoor drama is stunningly memorable.

      http://www.tecumsehdrama.com/

      3) The 10,000-acre "Wilds" in Cumberland is the best kept secret in Ohio. The sunset Safari must be booked well in advance, but supposedly is worth it. Otherwise, try to visit on a cool day when the animals are active during the afternoon.

      http://www.thewilds.org/

      From the Wilds, it's not far to see (and stand in for a great photo memory) the "Big Muskie" bucket.

      http://www.roadsideamerica.com/story/2184

      Columbus possesses a leading Ohio shopping mecca in Easton Town Center, the often top-rated science museum in the U.S., German Village (especially Schmidt's), the Ohio Capitol building, and Ohio State.

      http://www.statehouse.state.oh.us/

      If you need more to fill your Ohio journey, you could add the world class cultural attractions of Cleveland, which in addition to Cleveland Museum of Art include the Cleveland Orchestra or other summer events at the spectacular Blossom Music Festival, Playhouse Square the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Museum., the U.S.S. Cod, the only intact U.S. WWII submarine; the William J. Mather lake freighter, a superb Natural History Museum with an excellent planetarium, the Indians at Progressive Field, one of the largest and best arboreta, the renown West Side market and many other attractions. See links below.

      BOL for a fun and memorable visit!

  6. QUESTION:
    What is the definition of humanity in this 21st century ?

    • ANSWER:
      Who is to give it definition?

      Humanity is a race of beings, with a level of sentience, with the following capabilities: communicate by electron processors from any two or more points on the grid, read from all books written and browse billions of electronic-articles, travel via car, train, bus and airplane, to markets, jobs, or homes of relatives, create mobile machines to do monotonous jobs, remedy diseases and look for cures, build high-tech smart houses with free energy systems, watch, film, direct, and write, screen plays and video game stories, from the imagination, breed, walk upright, fart and defecate, eat: meat, veggies, fruits, pasta, breads, sugar products, dairy and eggs, and do I like eggs; and that's just Japanese society. xD

  9. QUESTION:
    Does anybody have any proof to back up the official 9/11 stories?
    I'm tired of trying to defend my views that 9/11 was an inside
    job. Can somebody please show me hard evidence that the
    official 9/11 stories are indeed all geniune?

    For example, give me links to photos that show:

    1. Pancaked floors sitting in a pile, one of top of each other,
    because those Twin Towers collapsed due to a pancaking
    floor-by-floor collapse. Where are the solid concrete floors
    of the Twin Towers?

    2. Show me photos of the aeroplane fuselage, wings, large
    jet engines at the crash sites for Flight 77 and Flight 93.
    Surely 757 jet planes should leave behind some wreckage
    when they crash, right? So show me proof that this happened!

    3. Prove to me that air fires can indeed cause steel to fail
    catastrophically, resulting in steel-framed buildings collapsing
    at near free-fall speeds. Show me an example of a high rise
    steel-framed building that caught on fire, and completely
    collapsed right down to the ground level (except the 3 that fell
    on 9/11)
    Here is strong evidence that what we
    were all told by the corporate media
    about 9/11, was mostly false:

    http://www.911weknow.com

    (Watch the 9/11 Mysteries movie)

    http://www.truth911.net

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bx1E2B5oAEs

    Don't believe anything until you have
    done your own fact-finding research.

    Even the London 7/7 attacks appear to
    be an "inside job". Do your research.

    It appears these fabricated attacks were
    designed to manipulate public opinion,
    to garner support for wars and create
    bitter hatred and racial prejudice toward
    Muslims and Arabs... to make it much
    easier to invade and permanently
    occupy oil-rich middle eastern countries
    all in the name of 9/11... The world's
    leaders keep telling us: Remember 9/11
    and remember that they attacked us
    first!

    So why has the US forgotten about the
    search for Bin Laden, and why is Al
    Qaeda still at large?

    What if you had been lied to all along?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bx1E2B5oAEs

    Thousands of professionals, engineers
    and scientists are suspicious about
    what really happened on 9/11. Here is
    a list of distinguished Professors and
    Academics who do not believe in the
    official stories:

    http://patriotsquestion911.com/professors.html

    Why? Because the physical evidence
    for "controlled demolition" of the 3 WTC
    buildings is undeniable and simply
    overwhelming. Any person with half a
    brain or an ounce of intelligence, can
    recognize "explosive events", demolition
    squibs shooting out of buildings, and
    near free-fall (zero resistance) collapses
    of very very strong materials after such
    a long delay period. These things are
    simply unnatural & cannot be explained
    due to air fire damage, because even
    very hot temperatures will only cause
    steel to bend, sag or droop, but not
    break apart or explode suddenly.

    And watch the 9/11 Mysteries movie:

    http://www.911weknow.com

    http://www.truth911.net

    I know these things are very difficul to
    accept because to believe that 9/11
    was all an "inside job", means that you
    have to agree that the corporate media
    and the US government has been lying
    to you and deceiving you for so many
    years, and it means that this war on
    terror is all fake.

    Could it be that those who don't even
    bother to look at the facts and physical
    evidence are in a state of cognitive
    dissonance? Denial of reality?

    FACT: Steel melts at 1532 C.

    Look at all the evidence of molten steel
    found in the basements of Ground Zero,
    including WTC 1, WTC 2 and WTC 7.

    Explain the molten metal which stayed
    red hot for up to 8 weeks after 9/11!

    How can an air fire, whose fuel source
    was depleted almost entirely during the
    initial impacts of the jet planes, cause so
    much heat build-up and keep the rubble
    hotter than air fires for more than 6
    weeks after 9/11 ?

    Firefighters and 1st responders even
    described the basements as being
    like a foundry!
    Please study these research papers:

    http://www.journalof911studies.com/

    Look at these photos:

    Page 17 of this PDF file by Professor
    Steven Jones:

    http://www.journalof911studies.com/volume/200609/Why_Indeed_Did_the_WTC_Buildings_Completely_Collapse_Jones_Thermite_World_Trade_Center.pdf

    http://www.members.shaw.ca/truth911/truth911/steel.htm

    http://www.911research.com/wtc/evidence/moltensteel.html

    EXPLAIN ALL THE MOLTEN STEEL!

    Steel melts at around 1532 C. Air fires
    do not get hotter than 250 C in still air
    due to insufficient oxygen. In fact, paper
    burning in air burns at Fahrenheit 451,
    or around 233 C. (due to lack of oxygen
    availability in still air )

    Air fires do not burn hotter than 650C,
    even under strong winds and with the
    best possible fuel burning conditions...

    But there is so much physical evidence
    that molten metal was found at Ground
    Zero, on 9/11 and during the clean-up.

    EXPLAIN THE MOLTEN METAL!

    http://www.truth911.net

    Do yourself a big favour, watch the best
    documentary I have seen this year:

    http://www.zeitgeistmovie.com

    Keep an open mind, and prepare to be
    thoroughly blown away by all the facts...

    • ANSWER:
      There was no "inside: conspiracy on 9/11

      All the experts in the world have endorsed the "official" explanation as scientifically correct, & they have done so in print.

      See
      -- The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) http://www.asce.org/pressroom/news/display_press.cfm?uid=1057
      It’s useful to see the investigation team & their credentials at: http://www.asce.org/responds/wtc_team.cfm

      -- Scientific American. See

      http://www.sciam.com/article.cfm?articleID=000DA0E2-1E15-128A-9E1583414B7F0000

      -- Massachusetts Institute of Technology. See http://web.mit.edu/civenv/wtc/

      --FEMA: http://www.fema.gov/rebuild/mat/mat_fema403.shtm

      --NIST: http://wtc.nist.gov/pubs/factsheets/faqs_8_2006.htm

      -- Popular Mechanics published a huge article attacking the conspiracy nuts using over 300 renowned experts in http://www.popularmechanics.com/technology/military_law/1227842.html

      -- World experts in demolition have attacked the 9-11 conspiracy theory. See:

      http://www.implosionworld.com/Article-WTC%20STUDY%208-06%20w%20clarif%20as%20of%209-8-06%20.pdf

      --PBS/NOVA http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/wtc/

      -- Purdue (http://www.purdue.edu/UNS/html4ever/020910.Sozen.Pentagon.html), and others

      -- Columbia University has permanent seismographic recorders that was running on 9/11 which clearly show no explosives during the collapse of Towers 1 & 2, or of WTC7 . See page 2 of

      http://www.implosionworld.com/Article-WTC%20STUDY%208-06%20w%20clarif%20as%20of%209-8-06%20.pdf

      "Explanations" of the WTC collapse by laymen & film-makers are frivolous when compared to what true, world-recognized experts are saying. The above essentially ends the conspiracy theory.
      ======================================
      IMPORTANT ADDENDUM:
      The list ( http://patriotsquestion911.com/professor... ) of “thousands” of so-called experts who doubt the official explanation of 9/11 is worthless for two reasons:

      1. There is no way to verify that these people are real, that they are experts in the correct field (civil engineering, demolition, etc). If they are real, do they even know that their name is on this list? How can anyone check this??

      2. More importantly, the doubting scientists in this list have published NOTHING at all. Not one article. On the contrary, the real experts have printed dozens of real articles, in peer-reviewed journals, technical journals, and trade journals explaining how the jets caused the Towers to collapse. This is the way real science is done. You publish it in a science journal, sign your name. People know your credentials and they review the article & then publish IF it’s good. Given that THERE IS NOT ONE SINGLE THING PUBLISHED BY THE “EXPERTS” WHO THINK 9/11 WAS A FAKE, that ends this argument completely, utterly.

      ==> THIS MEANS THE CONSPIRACY THEORY HAS NO SCIENTIFIC VALIDITY

      Also, all the pseudoscientific arguments given above can be dismissed since noone supports them in the real literature.

      Here is a partial list of technical articles on how the Twin Towers fell:

  11. QUESTION:
    Family vacation ideas?
    I need ideas for a family vacation. But I don't want to have to pay alot to entertain the kids and husband once we get there. We live in Indiana and would rather not go too far from here...maybe Tennessee or Myrtle beach? We would also like to get a hotel room or chalet/cabin....?? But again, we are open to suggestions. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      It would help to know something about your family's interests and ages, but I would consider a tour into Ohio.

      1) Dayton is one of the most unknown tourist destinations in the U.S. The U.S. Air Force Museum is free (if you don't go to any of the IMAX movies, etc.) and it's spectacular. It's the largest military air museum in the world. E.g., it has most of the presidential airplanes, which you can walk through. Carillon Park has the world's first real airplane (the Wright Brothers plane hanging in the Smithsonian is only a powered glider), and the nation's oldest surviving locomotive. It's one of the most interesting little historical parks that you'll ever visit.

      http://files.asme.org/ASMEORG/Communities/History/Landmarks/5661.pdf

      http://www.carillonpark.org/index.html

      It would be neat to schedule your trip to Dayton so that you could hear the Carillon play!

      And don't miss visiting the Hoffman Prairie Flying Field, just a few miles from the Air Force Museum. This is where the first airplane was perfected and flown. The federal government has done a great job of preserving several Wright Brother historical sites in Dayton.

      2) From Dayton, you could visit King's Island, or, as part of your loop, you could visit the best amusement park in the world and the roller coaster capital of the world, Cedar Point in Sandusky. Sandusky also could serve as a gateway to Ohio's Lake Erie Islands.

      http://www.lake-erie.com/

      You could enjoyably spend a vacation just in Sandusky if your family likes roller coasters, water sports and water parks. Cedar Point offers many acres of parks and rides for kids in addition to its adult-sized roller coasters. If you visit Cedar Point, be certain that your stay includes a Wednesday, as that typically is one of the slowest days of the week.

      3) Cincinnati offers one of the best zoos in the nation, the Ohio River, a very kid-friendly Natural History Museum and Children's Museum at its Museum Center at Union Terminal, and the Reds during season.

      http://www.cincinnatizoo.org/

      http://www.bbriverboats.com/dining.html

      4) If your family likes camping (cabins are available) and hiking, Hocking Hills State Park often is considered one of the most beautiful locations in Ohio and is located southeast of Columbus. Some of the hiking trails (Rock House if I remember correctly) are dangerous and are not for toddlers or the unfit, but many are easily accessible and lots of fun for pre-teens.

      There are many other activities in the area, from the spectacular "Tecumseh" outdoor drama (enjoyed by kids of all ages), to a scenic railway, horseback riding and canoeing.

      http://www.ohiodnr.com/parks/hocking/tabid/743/Default.aspx

      http://www.hockinghills.com/parks/parks.htm

      Hocking Hills has many water features which are more spectacular in the very early summer or after a period of significant rainfall.

      5) Mohican State Park has a beautiful lodge. It's popular for its canoeing. The Mohican River is dam-fed, so it doesn't dry up in the summer. This is very safe canoeing, at least most of the time.

      http://www.mohicanstatepark.org/

      Malabar Farm State Park is nearby and is both a working farm and historical chapter of American film history. It's a major Hollywood getaway frozen in its mid-20th century splendor.

      http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/8825/malabar_farm_an_ohio_treasure_and_lovely.html

      6) The "Wilds" in Cumberland is the best kept secret in Ohio. The sunset Safari must be booked well in advance, but supposedly is worth it. Otherwise, try to visit on a cool day when the animals are active during the afternoon.

      From the Wilds, it's not far to see (and stand in for a great photo memory) the "Big Muskie" bucket:

      http://consumer.discoverohio.com/searchdetails.aspx?detail=41438

      Also nearby is Zanesville's Y bridge (best viewed from a park with an overlook above the bridge) over which you can reach Tom's Ice Cream Bowl, a 1950s ice cream parlor, which even features a working Campbell soup machine.

      7) If you need more to fill your Ohio journey, you could add the world class cultural attractions of Cleveland, including the Cleveland Orchestra or other summer events at the spectacular Blossom Music Festival and the Cleveland Art Museum, which still offers free admission. Cleveland also has the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, the U.S.S. Cod, the only intact U.S. WWII submarine; the William J. Mather lake freighter, a superb Natural History Museum with an excellent planetarium, the Indians at Progressive Field, beaches and many other attractions. See links below.

      BOL for a fun and memorable vacation!!!

  12. QUESTION:
    Montel Williams the anti-Al Gore?
    Montel Williams said on his show that he has invented a product for cleaning the stewardess buttons on Airplanes, that is 35% chlorine. Doesn't he know that chlorine is damaging the environment, that is why they are banning Freon, because it contains chlorine which deplets the ozone layer. Is he Al Gore's worst enemy?

    • ANSWER:
      Gore is a hypocrite - he uses the environment as a money making opportunity - that's all. Gore is nothing more than a sleazy "rich" lawyer.

      http://tennesseepolicy.org/main/article.php?article_id=764

      NASHVILLE - In the year since Al Gore took steps to make his home more energy-efficient, the former Vice President’s home energy use surged more than 10%, according to the Tennessee Center for Policy Research.

      “A man’s commitment to his beliefs is best measured by what he does behind the closed doors of his own home,” said Drew Johnson, President of the Tennessee Center for Policy Research. “Al Gore is a hypocrite and a fraud when it comes to his commitment to the environment, judging by his home energy consumption.”

      In the past year, Gore’s home burned through 213,210 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity, enough to power 232 average American households for a month.

      In February 2007, An Inconvenient Truth, a film based on a climate change speech developed by Gore, won an Academy Award for best documentary feature. The next day, the Tennessee Center for Policy Research uncovered that Gore’s Nashville home guzzled 20 times more electricity than the average American household.

      After the Tennessee Center for Policy Research exposed Gore’s massive home energy use, the former Vice President scurried to make his home more energy-efficient. Despite adding solar panels, installing a geothermal system, replacing existing light bulbs with more efficient models, and overhauling the home’s windows and ductwork, Gore now consumes more electricity than before the “green” overhaul.

      Since taking steps to make his home more environmentally-friendly last June, Gore devours an average of 17,768 kWh per month –1,638 kWh more energy per month than before the renovations – at a cost of ,533. By comparison, the average American household consumes 11,040 kWh in an entire year, according to the Energy Information Administration.

      In the wake of becoming the most well-known global warming alarmist, Gore won an Oscar, a Grammy and the Nobel Peace Prize. In addition, Gore saw his personal wealth increase by an estimated 0 million thanks largely to speaking fees and investments related to global warming hysteria.

      “Actions speak louder than words, and Gore’s actions prove that he views climate change not as a serious problem, but as a money-making opportunity,” Johnson said. “Gore is exploiting the public’s concern about the environment to line his pockets and enhance his profile.”

      The Tennessee Center for Policy Research, a Nashville-based free market think tank and watchdog organization, obtained information about Gore’s home energy use through a public records request to the Nashville Electric Service.

  14. QUESTION:
    what does the term "tounge in cheek" mean?

    • ANSWER:
      Tongue-in-cheek
      From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
      (Redirected from Tongue in cheek)

      *Tongue-in-cheek*: is a term that refers to a style of humour in which things are said only half seriously, or in a subtly mocking way.

      Origin of the term:
      The term first appeared in print in 'The Fair Maid of Perth', by that inveterate coiner of phrases, Sir Walter Scott, 1828:

      "The fellow who gave this all-hail thrust his tongue in his cheek to some scapegraces like himself."

      The first known appearance of the term in print is in the book, "The Ingoldsby Legends," by Richard Harris Barham, published in 1845. The author uses the term describing a Frenchman:

      He fell to admiring his friend's English watch,

      He examined the face,

      And the back of the case,

      And the young Lady's portrait there, done on enamel, he

      Saw by the likeness was one of the family;

      Cried 'Superbe! Magnifique!' (With his tongue in his cheek)
      Then he open'd the case, just to take a peep in it, and
      Seized the occasion to pop back the minute hand.

      Tongue-in-cheek humor in fiction:
      Tongue-in-cheek humour in fiction often takes the form of gentle parodies. Such stories seem to abide by the conventions of an established serious genre, while in reality, they gently poke fun at some aspects of that genre. A tongue-in-cheek work still relies on these conventions and is not the same as a farce. Good examples of films that are made in a tongue-in-cheek way are Scream, South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut, Shaun of the Dead, Demolition Man, True Lies, or Hot Fuzz. Note that these films are still faithful to their genre (slasher, musical, zombie, action, spy, and police-thriller respectively) and are not out-and-out parodies such as Airplane! or Scary Movie. Tongue-in-cheek humor does not typically breach the fourth wall.

  16. QUESTION:
    Do you think RJ Reynolds is promoting more young people to try tobacco with their new dissoluvable products?
    Camel has several new products. One is Snus but those are chewing tobacco pouches. The newer ones were tested out last weekend during the Indy 500 along with 2 other sites and the release date isn't known yet.

    The dissolvable products -- a pellet (Camel Orbs), a twisted stick the size of a toothpick (Camel Sticks), and a film strip for the tongue (Camel Strips), are made from finely ground flavored tobacco. The products melt in the mouth within three to 30 minutes. RJR said the Strips melt fastest, the toothpick-like Sticks dissolve in about 10 minutes, and the pellet-size Orbs last the longest.

    The nicotine delivery of the products is said to be high: whereas a cigarette smoker typically takes in about 1 milligram of nicotine, the Camel Dissolvables are said to deliver about 0.6 to 3.1 mg of nicotine each.

    That's from this site:
    http://tobaccoproducts.org/index.php/Camel_Sticks,_Camel_Orbs_and_Camel_Strips (this shows what they look like as well)

    Anti-tobacco organizations are strongly speaking out against these products saying they target kids and they reseamble candy like tic-tacs. Here's what they have to say:

    http://blog.shapingyouth.org/?p=5614

    I'm 36 and have been smoking since 17. I wish I had never picked up a cigarette in the first place. I've tried to quit but just find it impossible. I'm also a recovering drug addict. In spite of the terrible withdrawls, it was easier to stop doing heroin than it is to give up smoking. The product does appeal to me as I can use them in airplanes and smoke-free environments. However, if enough teens and kids say that they would like to try these products then maybe they should NOT be available. Also, people forget but you can still get mouth cancer (which is deadly if not disfiguring and painful) even though you won't get lung cancer from them because you aren't inhaling the carcinogens. YOUR THOUGHTS???
    THANKS!
    note-sorry for any misspellings, my spell check won't work lately!

    • ANSWER:
      It's a free market (theoretically). I find it irritating that people get away with suing tobacco companies over things like getting cancer. I mean it's a well known fact that smoking can and does cause cancer. If you want to risk getting it by smoking, that's fine, it's your body you do what you want with it. But take some personal responsibility for your actions. Be prepared to deal with the consequences of your actions.

      I smoked for about 10 years, about a pack a day. I didn't find quiting particularly difficulty. I just went cold turkey and exercised a little self-disipline. Frankly I don't see why people say it's hard to quit. If you just muster a little self restraint, anyone can do it.

      As for the new smokeless tobacco products; no matter what they do, the tobacco industry's products will always be demonized. People will always find something to piss and moan about. Again if people took more personal responsibility there wouldn't be a problem. Nobody puts a gun to your head and demands you use tobacco products.

Dorothy Dandridge was the first African American to appear at the Las Vegas frontier. She played roles in The Big Broadcast of 1936, Easy Street in 1941, and most notably; Carmen Jones in 1954. Lena Horne, still living, made her impact in films like “The Duke is Tops”, and also on the Broadway musical “The Wiz”, also contributed to the civil rights movement.

    Bessie Coleman, for being the first African American woman to become an airplane pilot, and also the first to hold an international pilot license, paving the way and making it possible for black women to follow in her footsteps if they desire.

    Althea Gibson..being the first African American woman to compete on the world tennis tour, she was a pioneer in sports for Black Women, breaking the color barrier in tennis.

    Harriet Tubman & Sojourner Truth…Tubman, born a slave, we all know her for the famous “Underground Railroad”, in which she helped free many slaves, but during her lifetime, she also fought for women’s suffrage. Sojourner was also born a slave, and a women’s right activist & abolitionist, her most famous speech being “Aint I a woman” http://nostalgia.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aint_I_a_Woman

    Rosa Parks & Coretta Scott King..Rosa Parks, who would’ve thought her refusal to give up her seat on a bus would launch one of the biggest movements in black history, she remained an advocate for black rights in much of her lifetime, same as Coretta Scott King, who kept her husbands dream alive after his death

    Oprah Winfrey…..one of (if not the first) black woman to host her own talk show. She’s contributed to film, in movies like The Color Purple, but she’s gone on to become one of the most influential figures in modern day black history. She has her own book series, and has created foundations to help those less fortunate across the world, her show is watched daily in over 100 countries.

    These women are more than just names in a book, they are icons…All of their achievements rank with the best, but it doesn’t stop there…Black females are adding to Black History everyday, in fields of sports, entertainment, and politics, this is a salute to those who fought, and set the standards for the influential females of today.

  19. QUESTION:
    What EXACTLY do you think happened at the Rolling Stones Altamont incident?
    There are many accounts of what exactly happened in the events that led to the murder of Meredith Hunter.

    Do you think that there could be reasons that it happened (despite the immediate circumstances on the ground, or "directly involved in" the incident? One witness said:

    24 - Olga
    Sep 14, 2009 at 6:52 pm
    I was there also, all of sweet 16. By the time the Stones played, the huge mass of drugged out young people started pushing forward, there was no place to move. It was dusk and bonfires lit up around the hills like a scene out of hell when they began Sympathy for the Devil. Mick Jagger even said weird things happen when they play that song. Well DUH! Don Mclean was right when he wrote in Bye Bye Miss American Pie, "I saw Satan laughing with delight the day the music died". Most of us were churched kids back then, not realizing we were switching worship songs from Jesus to Lucifer and yes there was a blood sacrifice. After that California life got darker and people got more perverse, deeper into drugs, abuse and despair. Hunters blood flowed during the song, "Under my Thumb" and if you believe in Satan, that's exactly where he's had California's youth after that day when so many of us stopped believing in God.

    WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS?
    **Thanks for the answer. I have seen Gimme Shelter many times in my day (i'm 44). What I am getting at, is the question of, is it possible, like the commenter said....whatever the events that led to Hunter's death (he had a gun, he was with a white chick, the Angels were busting heads already...") Besides the events on the ground and in the fight, do you think it happened for a reason, like the commenter I posted implied.

    • ANSWER:
      What happened was:

      1. The Rollings Stones' collective ego ran amok. They wanted to have a free concert "to rival Woodstock", they wanted it filmed, and they wanted it released before Wooodstock's movie came out. The Stones were good at taking other peoples' ideas at that time, just ask the Beatles.

      2. The Grateful Dead suggested they hire Hell's Angels as security.

      3. Hell's Angels were duly hired, and paid with all the beer they could drink.

      4. Drunken, hopped-up Hell's Angels clash with stoned fans. One guy gets stabbed (he may or may not have provoked the attack, we'll never know. But many of others beaten up that day, including Marty Balin, singer for Jefferson Airplane, did not provoke the attacks)

      I actually happen to know the author of the article you linked personally; he's a moron. So take whatever the article says with a grain of sand. It certainly had nothing to do with Satan, if that's what you're getting at...

      Watch the movie; that's the best way to understand it.

  20. QUESTION:
    Please write a list of the best comedy movies?

    • ANSWER:
      Everybody has their favorite movie comedies, but if you want “the best,” a good place to start is with a list compiled by a large group of film lovers.
      The American Film Institute announced the 100 funniest American films, as selected by a blue-ribbon panel of leaders from across the film community, in 2000.

      Here is the AFI's top 10:

      1. “Some Like It Hot”
      2. “Tootsie”
      3. “Dr. Strangelove”
      4. “Annie Hall”
      5. “Duck Soup”
      6. “Blazing Saddles”
      7. “M*A*S*H”
      8. “It Happened One Night”
      9. “The Graduate”
      10. “Airplane!”

      AFI, a non-profit educational and cultural organization, distributed a ballot with 500 nominated comedy films to a jury of 1,800 leaders from the film community, including directors, screenwriters, actors, critics, historians and film executives.

      Here is a link to the list:

      http://www.afi.com/100years/laughs.aspx

      Time Out London compiled a more recent list, publishing its selection of the “100 best comedy movies” in 2011. “This is Spinal Tap!,” which finished in 29th place on the AFI list, topped the Time Out list, which was chosen by “more than 200 people whose job it is to make you laugh," including comedy writers, comedy directors, comic actors and stand-up comedians.

      Here’s the Time Out top 10:

      1. "This Is Spinal Tap" (1984)
      2. "Airplane!" (1980)
      3. "Monty Python's Life of Brian" (1979)

      4. "Annie Hall" (1977)
      5. "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" (1975)
      6. "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" (2004)
      7. "Withnail & I" (1987)
      8. "Groundhog Day" (1993)
      9. "Some Like it Hot" (1959)
      10. "The Jerk" (1979)


      Time Out London is a well-regarded, weekly listing magazine containing information about events in film, theater, fashion, literature and eating out.

      Here is a link to its comedy movie list:

      www.firstshowing.net/2011/time-out-londons-best-comedy-movies/

      Another way to look at the question is by awards won. Only six comedies have won the Academy Award for Best Picture, according to Filmsite, a website under the umbrella of American Movie Classics, a cable television channel known for showing classic movies and creating shows such as “Mad Men.”

      Those movies are:

      “It Happened One Night” (1934)
      “You Can’t Take It With You” (1938)
      “Going My Way” (1944)
      “Tom Jones” (1963)
      “The Sting” (1973)
      “Annie Hall” (1977)

      Here's a link to the Filmsite page (once there, scroll down to the "Comedy Films" section):

      http://www.filmsite.org/bestpics2.html

      Looking at the three lists above, only one comedy won Best Picture and made the top 10 on the AFI and Time Out London lists: “Annie Hall.” Of course, there are many more lists of great comedies on the Internet. To find others, you could enter the phrase “lists of best comedy movies” (without the quote marks) in a search engine like Yahoo or Google.

      You might also consider going to your local library, which is not only likely to have many comedy classics available for free borrowing on DVDs and/or videocassettes, but also librarians who would be happy to help with any questions you might have.

      Happy viewing!

  21. QUESTION:
    skydiving. please help?
    yeah i dont know what this means but i looked up skydiving and it said the rates are
    Rates:
    AFF: 250.00 USD
    S/L: 145.00 USD
    Tandem: 150.00 USD
    Video: 45.00 USD
    Jump Ticket: 14.00 USD to 10k ft

    yeah kinda confued please help

    • ANSWER:
      AFF is accelerated free fall. this is a training program to teach you how to skydive. you will take ground training courses and then jump with two jump masters and your own parachute. You will have time in free fall and then will be helped to land the parachute via radio instructions.

      S/L is static line, another training method where you exit the aircraft and your parachute is deployed by a static line. Very little if any free fall in this training method for a while. you get on progressively longer static lines and longer delays.

      Tandem is a jump were you will be connected to a tandem master. The tandem master is a highly experienced and highly trained skydiver. The two of you will go through free fall together and land under one parachute.

      Video - if you want video of your tandem or AFF jump it will cost you an extra for another experienced skydiver to jump with you and take video of the jump. They will be in free fall with you and can film the landing as well.

      The jump tickets prices are for experienced and licensed skydivers.

      There are a few websites you need to check out to get good info on skydiving.

      http://www.uspa.org is the website of the United States Parachute Association, the governing body for sport parachuting in the United States. There is a list of member dropzones on the website along with all sorts of great info on the sport.

      The official site for the British Parachute Association is: http://www.bpa.org.uk/links.htm
      The official site for the Canadian Parachute Association is: http://www.cspa.ca/
      The official site for the Australian Parachute Federation is: http://www.apf.asn.au/

      http://www.dropzone.com is another great resource for everything about skydiving, including dropzones in the United States and the rest of the world, and some BASE too.

      http://www.bigairsportz.com is the web site for Brian Germain, one of the best people on the planet to get information on canopy flight from.

      http://www.skydiveradio.com is just fun and a good place to feel like you’re at the drop zone when you can’t physically be there.

      http://www.azarsenal.com/ is the website for the top vertical relative work team right now. Arizona Arsenal won the 2007 USA Nationals.

      If you’re not sure about skydiving but want to fly you should look at the vertical wind tunnels. http://www.skyventure.com/ is the website for skyventure which operates many tunnels in the United States, Europe and Asia. I love flying in the tunnel. I don’t do it very much, I’d rather spend my money on skydives, but it is a great place to learn, work on my flying skills and just have a lot of fun!

      Make sure that you contact the drop zone you want to jump at directly. There are a few scams out there, one of which is 1800skyride. They will take your money and send you to any dropzone they want too but only about three dz’s in the country except skyride tickets. So please, please, please contact the dropzone directly.

      What does skydiving feel like? -- Freedom. For 45 to 60 seconds there is nothing but me, the air and my friends. Flying your body in the sky is the greatest feeling I have ever experienced. Flying and landing a parachute is a lot of fun too. I'd say it is kinda like driving a race car and landing an airplane all at once.

      For me I find relaxation in free fall. I know no better way to relax then jumping out of plane and back flying solo.

      It is very easy to breath in free fall. There is a lot of air up there. Being relaxed and just flying and having fun.

      By the way, if you are afraid of heights you have nothing to worry about for skydiving. After about 2000 feet of climb it will all look the same. When you are in free fall you do not have the feeling of falling because there is nothing to tell you how fast you are falling. Think about as driving down the interstate and looking at an overpass two miles away. You’re doing 100mph towards the overpass but it does not seem to be getting any closer until you’re right up on it. Same thing in skydiving, the ground is far enough away that there is no ground rush. It took me about 100 jumps before I could see the difference between 12000 feet, 7000 feet and 3000 feet.

      The length of a skydive depends on the type of skydive. a low altitude jump I may have 5 to 20 seconds of free fall. Full altitude I can have 45 to 60 seconds of free fall. If I’m free flying then less free fall because the speeds are higher. If I'm on my belly then more time because the speeds are lower. The canopy flight time depends on how you fly and the type of canopy. It can be anywhere from less than 60 seconds under canopy to 5 or 6 minutes for a normal jump.

      My first jump was a tandem and I don't remember being in the door, but I remember the rush and how i felt like i was floating during free fall. My first jump as a student I remember climbing out of the plane and getting the shake from my instructors telling me they are ready. I thought, "What the F am I doing?" then I just took a deep breath and gave the exit count. Letting go of the plane and starting the dive flow. What a rush! It was so much fun to fly my own body!

      Now when I jump I think about the next point to turn. I think about flying faster in a track. I watch my friends’ body position and try to help them get in a better position with hand signals or I get coaching from someone else and work on my body position. Under canopy I think about my set up points and how and where to enter the landing pattern and where I want to land. But more than anything I think about how much fun and wonderful this sport is.

      The tandem is a great jump. I’d get video too. I made one tandem in June of 2005. If you are looking at skydiving as a one time thing, something to check off your life’s to do list then go right for a tandem. If you know you want to be a skydiver right now then go for a tandem or start student training. Either is great. I started skydiving by going for a tandem, thinking it was a one time thing and loved it so much that I have made it a major part of my life. In August of 2005 I started student training (good info about student training at uspa.org) and got my license. I’ve been jumping as much as I can and have a few hundred jumps. I have earned the USPA Coach Rating and plan to continue to jump for fun and help teach others how to fly and be safe in the air. There is nothing better than flying your body through the sky with your friends. The canopy is a lot of fun to fly too. It only gets better and better. Every weekend seems to be more fun than the one before. You will get into the sport for the rush, but you stay because of the people. I love this sport and I sincerely hope that you’ll become a full time skydiver and I’ll be able to make some jumps with you at a boogie!

      Blue Skies! Black Death! And EFS!!!!

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Which is the best solar panel set up?
    I have doing a little research on costs etc of solar PV and they seem to vary to a large degree.
    I understand that you don't get much choice of the make etc with free solar panel deals but wondered what you guys would install on your own home.
    We are looking at funding it ourselves, though still trying to work out the best way to do it.
    I am trying to really find a good solar system and the makes and models then i will be able to compare prices/services a bit more easier. Is there a big difference in quality of the solar stuff or is all pretty much the same? Is there any i should avoid?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Eric,
      There is a vast quality diference between products on the MCS approved list. All solar equipment is not the same. Your best advice is to use companies such as http://www.bopp-film.net/products/synthetic-paper-1.htm you might have heard of and who are very likely to still be around in 25 years. Sharp, Sanyo, Mitsubishi from Japan , Schott and Sunny Boy from Germany , Fronius from Austria and Mastervolt from Holland are all high quality. Obviously this equipment is higher priced with Sanyo HIT240 twice the price of some of the modules on the market.

      If you use some product just because it is cheaper, what will happen in ten years time when one module fails and the company is long gone ? There are a lot of Chinese start up module producers with billions of pounds of debt , common sense says they will not all make it. Lucky dip with a 25 year investment seems risky. "

  2. QUESTION:

  7. QUESTION:
    Is the documentary ZEITGEIST factually correct?
    This is a very compelling documentary and I have watched it all. I am a non American and I am not completely familiar with American history but what I saw makes a great deal of sense.

    How factually correct is this in the most part?

    If you have not seen this here is a link where you can watch it for free. I skipped the dull musical introduction though

    http://www.documentary-film.net/search/watch-now.php?&ref=113

    • ANSWER:
      I consider it to be an intellectually dishonest documentary, not because of the filmmakers personal bias, but because of its disregard for the truth. There is so much questionable statements that can easily be refuted, or controversial points that have legitimate opposing views that should have been presented.

      - Regarding part 1: Jesus

      The "Mythology of Jesus" theory was an obscure and generally dismissed theory.
      It has gained exposure due to author "Acharya S" and her collaboration with the Zeitgeist filmmaker. (She is also author of the films companion guide). But even the casual but astute viewer will find considerable silliness in the some of the conjectures where practically any numerical or astrological connection 'proves' mytholical derision. Son=sun? Three stars in Orions belt = three kings? Virgo = Mary because the astrological sign sort of looks like an M? Who buys this stuff?

      Some other views:

      " The idea of Jesus as a myth is rejected by the majority of biblical scholars and historians. In 2004, Richard Burridge and Graham Gould stated that they did not know of any "respectable" scholars that held the view today. Robert E. Van Voorst has stated that biblical scholars and historians regard the thesis as "effectively refuted"."

      For more rebuttals, see http://webskeptic.wikidot.com/zeitgeist-story-of-jesus

      - Regarding Part II: 9/11

      It should be noted upfront that being skeptical of the 'official version' of anything presented by the government or media, is a good thing for society. And it should also be noted that questioners of 9/11 'offical versions' range from genuine intellectual pursuits of greater truths, to bizarre interpretations specifically intended to support a unwavering point of view.

      The Zeitgeist filmmaker is part of that spectrum that has bought into the theory that the government orchestrated the whole thing. Unfortunately the evidence they selected and presented was sloppy and much of it easily disproved, even by members of the Truth movement. (I've heard some speculate this may have been a red-herring to discredit the 'truth' movement).

      For a point by point analysis, see http://www.conspiracyscience.com/articles/zeitgeist/part-two/

      - Regarding Part III: Men behind the curtain

      As a liberatarian, I found this part to have had the most potential in exposing abuses of government and men in power. Instead, it trots out tired long disproven conspiracy theories.

      "Income Tax law Doesn't exist" theory - Very stale. Consistently disproven over-and-over again. No new information, just new victims going to jail that fall for these arguments. Very sad.

      "Federal Reserve System is owned by international bankers" - Still a common conspiracy theory. Still wrong. The Federal Reserve System, is headed by the Board of Governors, a Government Agency (look it up - http://www.whitehouse.gov/government/independent-agencies.html ). The Federal Reserve branches can definitely be considered tightly regulated corporations owned by their member banks, all of which must be American-owned by law. It is receives regular audits, and is overseen by congress.

      Other views:

      "There is no shortage of information which refutes this viewpoint. But this type of conspiracy relies on two elements common to web surfers: First, they're only willing to check facts at the most superficial level, which usually means they'll read a message or watch a clip just once before forming an opinion and moving on. " Ref:

      http://media.wildcat.arizona.edu/media/storage/paper997/news/2008/01/28/Opinions/Internet.Idiocy.The.Latest.Pandemic-3171363.shtml

      "...(a) common problem in the film: presenting something in such a shallow manner without further corroboration or scholarly evidence." - Ref:

      http://gauntlet.ucalgary.ca/story/12284

      There are those who defend the film because they believe that agenda+motive is more important than truth. There is a certain irony here since the films overarching thesis is to be wary of those who would obfuscate the truth in an attempt to persuade others to their point of view.

    Thanks!!

    • ANSWER:
      If you have a report or just want to impress or scare the crap out of your classmates read up on "global dimming"

      This documentary scared the sanity out of me. It was on PBS a couple of years ago, and is now hosted at this website. The film is free to watch, but you have to sign up on the site, which is a bummer but is free as well.

      http://www.documentary-film.net/search/video-listings.php?e=4

  14. QUESTION:
    Getting an apartment with a poor credit score and joining AmeriCorps?
    My credit score is about 544, which I know is awful. I just paid off one card, and by the end of the month the last one I can pay off as well, which I know will help a lot. I have joined the AmeriCorps, and will be living in a fairly rural, small community that is fairly low income, but I was wondering how hard it may be to get an apartment. I'm not going to be getting anything for a few months, so I will have the chance to pay off the last card, make VERY small purchases and pay them off immediately to help rebuild my credit rating. Thoughts?? Experience??
    I meant that I'm not going to be moving for a few months*

    • ANSWER:
      Not much you can do except brace yourself for months, years of difficult times. Sorry, accept that the huge economic diaster brought on by the banking industry is over. The banksters have the gold and they will soon have title to all the real estate for which the loans were made.

      They have received all the bailouts plus they have the "derivatives" which is millions of homes, farms and commercial real estate. Just like the last crash and depression. Just like J.P. Morgan did in the Thirties. There must be a monetary reform or we will be slave labor soon.

  9. QUESTION:
    Can someone help me find a local film project I can participate in during the summer?
    I used to be part of a student film project one year ago and it went very well for me. It was a great opportunity and in Portland. But now its over and I want to do another project like that over the summer. I've been searching the internet and I can't find any locally that I can afford to be in because they charge fees. I want to be in a project that I can do during the summer and is located in Portland, Oregon. Any kind of help would be appreciated greatly.

    • ANSWER:
      you can volunteer at a few of the film production companies, tell them you want to be a PA (production assistant) or whatever else you can do to help out. I know Portland has some good companies, check food chain films, picture this productions, limbo films, OMPA guide book will give you a list of all the registered production companies here is the link to the companies http://www.ompa.org/directory/OMPD_search.php
      then just a matter of getting your foot in the door. Wont cost you anything, most likely you will work for free on one or two shoots, then average PA rate is around 150-200 day after that.
      Good Luck!!

  10. QUESTION:
    what are the best free video editors and effects software?
    i want a free video editor for film, but i want it to be halfway decent.

    i also want to be able to use masking and things but pay a very low price. whats the cheapest editor like that, free would be best?

    • ANSWER:
      There's several editors you can use....

      Take a look at the tutorials for Windows Movie Maker at
      http://www.windowsmoviemakers.net/Tutorials/ - it may be WMM is all you need. It really is foolproof except that it's picky in what file formats it takes and the lack of native support for multiple video and audio tracks are a definite disadvantage (but there are workarounds).

      The version 2 series were probably the most versatile, you can find them here - http://www.brothersoft.com/downloads/windows-movie-maker.html - but you'll have problems installing the older versions on Windows 7. Windows Live Movie Maker is still good, but not so versatile.

      Other free video editors are...

      Wax - http://www.debugmode.com/wax/ - this is also a compositor - a bit like Adobe's After Effects - - unlimited video and audio tracks
      VideoLAN Movie Creator - http://videolan.org/vlmc/ - up to 64 audio and video tracks
      TrakAxPC - www.trakax.com/software/pc/
      VideoSpin - http://videospin.com/ - just 1 video track so you may as well use WMM
      VideoPad - the free version - http://www.nchsoftware.com/videopad/
      Lightworks - http://www.lightworksbeta.com/ - I like this one - unlimited tracks ?
      Serif MoviePlus - http://serif.com/free-video-editing-software/ - unlimited tracks ?
      Ezvid - ezvid.com/ - 32 video and audio tracks

      Another is Zwei-Stein. This is a good editor but I found the interface to be absolutely horrible.

      VirtualDub, RAD Video tools, AVITricks and Avidemux are also good tools you should look at. Although not full editors like the others they have some useful features.

      Lightworks and Wax together are a very good video editing system for free.

      All are safe, at least from the sites I've linked to.

      If you want to spend some money then there are reviews of 14 video editors under 0 at http://video-editing-software-review.toptenreviews.com/

      More costly are video editors like Sony Vegas and Adobe Premiere. Both of which are very good. Premiere is probably more advanced but harder to learn everything it can do.

  11. QUESTION:
    How can my husband build a web site to display film scripts he has written?
    He has finished his sixth feature-film script and wants to display all of them on a web site that would allow a viewer to read and download them...He's not worried about theft since they are all registered with the National Screenwriters Guild (West), a common practice. He has registered a domain name and bought a do-it-yourself website kit, but realizes he's way out of his league. He's a "techno-dummy," in his own words.

    • ANSWER:
      I sure hope you mean Writer's Guild of America is who he is registered with, because if not, some wannabe company has your husbands material.

      I would actually tell him he is wasting his money building a site of his own, because there are several others out there that he can post each script, safely and securely, without spending a dime.

      http://www.greenwriter.org

      The above is a brand new site, dedicated to reducing the consumption of paper in Hollywood. Your husband can create a free account and post all of his material. Producers and Agents will have to pay to use the site and view the material, but it will always be free for the screenwriter.

  12. QUESTION:
    Is there a program that can film what you are doing on your screen?
    Ok so i want to be able to film what I am doing on my screen and I found this program http://camstudio.org/ but It doesn't work on my macbook.
    I want a free program so I can film my screen.
    Does anyone know of another program that may do so?

    • ANSWER:
      There's a great screen recording program called Screenjelly (www.screenjelly.com) that lets you record a video of your screen from a browser window and then share it with your friends through Facebook or other social networking sites.

      Oh, it's also free :)

  13. QUESTION:
    where can I find a free newspaper archieve?
    I'm trying to find the grave of my great grandfather. Where can I find a free, no subscription needed newspaper archieve. He died in 1948 in Seattle, WA.

    • ANSWER:
      You won't find 1948 newspapers from Seattle online. You'll have a couple of options. One is to go to the library and pull the newspaper films from that month and flip through until you find it. The other is to visit the King County GenWeb site and find a volunteer who will go pull it for you. There is much more genealogy offline than there is online. Hook into GenWeb and you'll find your search much easier.

  15. QUESTION:
    How do you unload film from an Olympus OM-1 35 mm film camera?
    I know how to load it but not unload. The last time i tried i ripped the film out of the cartridge.

    • ANSWER:
      Hey Nicole, if you ripped the film out of the cartridge, both you and possibly the camera are at fault. The camera's advance should lock up at a certain tension at the end of the roll, not allowing you to rip the film. If this is not working, the camera needs to be sent to a repair shop for a Clean Lube and Adjust. And be sure to tell them about this problem. KEH.com will do this for around 0.

      The way you are at fault is for forcing the camera. When I was growing up, my dad always told me not to force things when they aren't working (turns out that's good advice for life in general, not just technical things!) When you felt that much tension on the advance lever, you should have not forced it, looked at your frame counter and see, oh, I'm out of film!

      So two lessons there.

      Next lessons can be taught in the manual for the camera:

      http://www.butkus.org/chinon/olympus/olympus_om-1/olympus_om-1.htm

      and a basic 35mm photography guide:

      http://www.amazon.com/Basic-35mm-Photo-Guide-Photographers/dp/1584280301

      Without having read both of these manuals, you're going to have far too many questions as you continue shooting for all of us to answer here! So educate yourself, and then ask detailed questions if you still have some. And feel free to email me any tyme, with anything film related at JohnnyMartyr@Hotmail.com

      Anyway, to unload:

      1--rotate the rewind knob on the top front of the camera
      2--open the rewind crank on the rewind knob
      3--rotate the rewind crank in the direction of the arrow on the inside of the rewind crank, you may want to hold the rewind button down, sometymes they will release before you finish rewinding
      4--wait until you hear/feel the film get sucked all the way into the canister and then pull up on the rewind knob to open the door
      5--remove the film

      If you ever rip your film while rewinding, it's a good idea to have a film changing bag on hand. I carry a very small one in my camera bag and have a nice, large one at home for processing. If something goes wrong such as I rip my film as you did, I can remove the film and load it into an empty, reusable 35mm cartridge (another thing you should keep on hand.) Then the film could be taken to a professional lab and processed normally without much harm (besides the ripped frames!)

      Good luck! Take care of that OM-1 and learn to use it well!

    What are some of your favorite horror/slasher films?
    I love horror and slasher films - even the silly ones and remakes. I'm always looking for new ones to see - both good ones and campy/silly ones.

    What are some you've seen that you would recommend?

    • ANSWER:
      All 3 Evil Dead films (more the first two though)
      - If you liked them, Bubba Ho-Tep and maybe My Name is Bruce
      All 3 Re-animator films
      Braindead (called Dead Alive if you're in the US)
      Texas Chain Saw Massacre (original)
      Hellraiser 1 and 2
      Pet Sematary
      Audition
      Black Christmas (original)

      Some of them are a bit silly, but for more silliness, try Troll 2 or Satan's Little Helper.

      And if you're into older ones, you could try The House on Haunted Hill with Vincent Price. It's public domain now, so can be watched online or downloaded for free legally here: http://www.archive.org/details/The_House_On_Haunted_Hill

  19. QUESTION:
    Cheapest way to get 35mm film pictures onto the computer?
    I normally go to wallgreens and I get the negatives and the pictures onto a cd for 10$ but 10$ each roll of film really adds up. Is there a cheaper easy way to get my film pics onto the computer?? Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      Get them developed, no prints, just the negatives, and scan the film yourself. Obviously you'll need to buy a scanner that can scan film, but over time - it will pay for itself.

      There is absolutely no need to buy expensive software like Adobe Photoshop CS5. You could edit the scans if you need to with GIMP, which is free http://www.gimp.org - if you need to scan at higher bit depths then you could always get some free software such as Photivo http://photivo.org to do the main editing, and any pixel level editing could be done in GIMP once you convert to an 8bit image.

  20. QUESTION:
    how much should I sell my n65 film camera for?
    Its a film camera with a samsonite bag, a good lense and manual, that has been used only about five times and is in good condition.
    Im putting it up on ebay. should i put it up for only three days or seven. i dont think people even see it until about the second day because it shows the cameras with the time ending soonest first.
    Iooked on ebay already and i saw prices ranging from 2 to like so i dont know what to do.

    • ANSWER:
      Checking my local Craigslist, I found an N65 with a Quantaray 75-300mm zoom for . Checking the SF Bay area Craigslist, I find them listed from to 0.

      http://sfbay.craigslist.org/search/sss?query=N65

      Unless you really want to risk getting stuck with a low reserve price and enjoy paying fees, I'd suggest using your local Craigslist for free ads. As for price, you might post some ads at the local high school or community college where they have photography classes.

      The N65 is a nice little film camera and is a good value. I still have mine. :)

    What are some of the best computer screen filming software?
    Im looking for some software that will film my screen and record my voice. The software needs to be good quality, and i would prefer HD. I want the videos to be smooth. Ive tired some free software that was pretty laggy and choppy in the play back. The main use of this software will be making gaming videos. if you know of any free software that fits this that would be great, but i dont think there is so ones that cost money are great too.

    • ANSWER:
      There are some very good free ones...

      BB FlashBack Express - http://www.bbsoftware.co.uk/BBFlashBack_FreePlayer.aspx - good screen video capture program. Captures to AVI and SWF formats. The problem with this one is it puts a halo around the screen cursor which cannot be removed.

      Expression Encoder - http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=5c3c5f97-678c-4c99-a7fc-f84f320c626f - An advanced audio/video-encoding and live-broadcasting application. A huge program but the video capture is great. Captures to WMV format. The free version is good enough for most things but can only record 10 minutes at a time. The full program is 0 but it really is a good program.

      Screen to Video - http://www.koyotesoft.com/indexEn.html - great screen video capture program. Can capture screens to AVI, SWF, FLA and WMV formats. My favorite free recorder.

      Wink - http://www.debugmode.com/wink/ - A tutorial and presentation creation software. The screen capture is great. Captures to SWF format.

      The most common free one is CamStudio - http://camstudio.org/ - but I stopped using it some time ago after I found it could not capture subtle gradients and even changed some screen colors. It was was seaching for a replacement for that that I chose the previous 4 as good replacements.

      Camtasia - http://www.techsmith.com/camtasia/ - is just great. The reason being it can handle all sorts of screen recording - especially from commercial video which some other programs have problems with. This is not a free program (0).

      Fraps and Bandicam are OK, but use a lot of resources but both are less than .

  25. QUESTION:
    Do I need to film in a studio or can I do it from home?
    I am making an educational video. Do I need to rent a studio or can I film in my home. I do not need a lot of space. Just a green screen in the back!

    • ANSWER:
      The real question is if you can light your subjects well. None of them will work if you don't use good lighting and right camera setting. You can ask a Director of Photography to do it for you at home and cut so much of your precious budget from the location expenses which you can use for more important things (as in cast and crew transportation, props to make your picture look good, nice costumes for the cast, all of which,will make your video more interesting)
      You can just post a free ad on Craigslist.org (in the link for your city) or the local colleges or film schools. There are always very talented people who are willing to do it for free and use the experience in their resume.

    What video and photo editing programs work best for my budget?
    I have a decent camera not a special one, and I REALLY good video camera (films in HD). What programs are good for these? I mostly want it for green screening. I currently have the windows programs and want to upgrade. I'm only 15 so I only want to spend like a small amount so no programs

      and then theres www.sampleswap.org where people all over the world upload clips of songs, people talking, ANYTHING. im sure you can find some great suspenseful string on this site, id go here first. of course youll have to register, but its free and they dont send you a crap-load of annoying emails.

      and for the 'ZHOOM' (zoom?) part, id probably just cut the sound over to whats called a hit, or an orchestral hit.

  30. QUESTION:
    I want to create a website on my own documentaries of animals, where to start?
    I have a passion for animals and I am 19. I go around filming wildlife in nature somewhat to what Steve Irwin did and in the past I've raised money to go to certain areas of wildlife need. I am interested in making a website for my pictures, filmings, and my own findings of animals but also in combination with my artistic wifes painting and creations. I would eventually in the future life to become a big activist for wildlife. My main question is once the website is created and updated, how do I go about advertising and gaining an audience; where do I start? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      First you need to create a website and then just start adding great content. Thats the best way to gain an audience. It just takes some time. After a few weeks Google and other search engines will start to index your website, so people can find you organically just by searching through Google. You just need to create a website and add a few pages of content for starters and build on that.

      In order to create a website you just need:

      1. A domain name (like something.com)
      2. Web Hosting (the place where your actual website files are hosted)
      3. A way to build your website (either manually if you know HTML and CSS, by paying someone, by using a built in website builder from your web host, or by installing WordPress or similar CMS software).

      Most modern web hosts include all three, so all you need to build a website like www.something.com is to get web hosting.

      I recommend one of these: http://www.webhostingdiscounts.org/

      iPage is currently on 63% sale for just .95/month!

      Their hosting plan includes:
      - Free domain name (.com, .net, .org)
      - Unlimited storage and bandwidth
      - Unlimited email addresses per domain name

      They include a free point & click online site builder, so you can create your website without any programming (easy, just by drag and drop) or you can install WordPress (they include an easy, one click install of WordPress from their control panel), choose a theme that you like, and start adding content.

      They also have a great custom control panel with OneClick installs of all the popular software like WordPress, Joomla, Forums, Chat, Galleries, Online stores and a lot more.

      P.S. They also include free advertising credits (0 for Google AdWords, for Facebook, and for Yahoo/Bing), so you can advertise your website for free.

    The Camera is a Gopro Hero HD 2 and i shoot in 720p and 60 fps. If this matters.
    Thanks !

    • ANSWER:
      Nearly every video editor ever made can do this - that's what they do.

      How the various editors visualize what you're doing is different though.

      In editors like Windows Movie Maker you import the longer video into your project. You can preview it and split the video into chunks which appears as separate pieces of file. You then drag those down to the timeline and put them together.

      In others, like Adobe Premiere, you import the longer video into the project then in the preview pane add in and out markers. When you drag the video from the preview pane into the timeline only that part between the markers is used. You can add the longer original video to the preview and add more markers as many times as you like.

      Once you've got your viedeo clips put together and added your transitions, effects and titles you then render the finished video. All this means is that the editor takes all the clips and creates a ingle new video file. This is very intensive work for a computer and if you're using an older or middling one, this could take a while.

      You can upload that file to Youtube or whatever or even burn it onto a DVD that you can watch using a TV. This usually means another piece of sofware that is capable of DVD authoring. Again these range from free like Windows DVD Maker and DVDFlick to the 0 Adobe Encore.

      If you go to http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbWLzF5mVVFYQGxqZ_GCThA/videos you'll see a whole bunch of videos (11 of them) of a guy in a solo concert. All of those came from a single video file that was originally over an hour in length.

      The Opal Book Club, The Bronconator, and My Beautiful SUV (one of my hobbies is off-road driving) are made from multiple video files that were edited together.

      If you want to explore video editing then there's no reason to spend anything as there are some very good free editors around. Most compete very well with the sub-0 commercial software.

      Take a look at the tutorials for Windows Movie Maker at http://www.windowsmoviemakers.net/Tutorials/ - it may be WMM is all you need. It really is foolproof except that it's picky in what file formats it takes and the lack of native support for multiple video and audio tracks are a definite disadvantage (but there are workarounds)

      The version 2 series were probably the most versatile, you can find them here - http://www.brothersoft.com/downloads/windows-movie-maker.html - but you'll have problems installing the older versions on Windows 7.

      Other free video editors are...

      Wax - http://www.debugmode.com/wax/ - this is also a compositor - a bit like Adobe's After Effects - - unlimited video and audio tracks
      VideoLAN Movie Creator - http://videolan.org/vlmc/ - up to 64 audio and video tracks
      TrakAxPC - www.trakax.com/software/pc/
      VideoSpin - http://videospin.com/ - just 1 video track so you may as well use WMM
      VideoPad - the free version - http://www.nchsoftware.com/videopad/
      Lightworks - http://www.lightworksbeta.com/ - I like this one - unlimited tracks ?
      Serif MoviePlus - http://serif.com/free-video-editing-software/ - unlimited tracks ?
      Ezvid - ezvid.com/ - 32 video and audio tracks

      VirtualDub, RAD Video tools, AVITricks and Avidemux are also good tools you should look at. Although not full editors like the others they have some useful features.

      Lightworks and Wax together are a very good video editing system for free.

      All are safe, at least from the sites I've linked to.

      If you want to spend a little more then there's reviews of 14 editors under 0 at http://video-editing-software-review.toptenreviews.com/

      Once you've explored the basics and think you've reached the end of what you can do with the free or low cost editors then there's software like Sony Vegas (0) and Adobe Premiere and After Effects (,700)

  34. QUESTION:
    What films/tv shows can you copy and burn onto DVD and sell?
    A friend of mine apparently found a few films and TV shows from the 'black and white' era where the copyright was done in such a way where it made it legal to burn copies of them onto dvds and sell them on.
    A) Is this possible?
    B) If so Why?
    C) What examples of this are there?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes it possible and many make money off it such as movies like McLintock! (1963) being one of the best examples http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0057298/
      When a Copyright expires and no one renews it the film is called "Public Domain"
      This site is the best one for good videos

      http://www.archive.org/search.php?query=%2Fmetadata%2Flicenseurl%3A%28http*publicdomain*%29%20AND%20mediatype%3Amovies

      another example

      http://www.publicdomainflicks.com/

      Just do a search of 'Public Domain movies' and you will see a lot of films that are free and legal to download and some sell them yet there are some legal hurdles you have when you release them.

  35. QUESTION:
    What is the length of film, in inches, that is the legal amount to use in a documentary for free?

      Know that you're ONLY going to see at most 30% of the work out there. ONLY agents have access to the serious jobs or the other 70%.

      To get an agent, you need to get GREAT headshots, a good resume, and training from the best. These are enough to get you a commercial agent at least. Getting a GOOD theatrical agent (Film/tv) takes longer. Most good theatrical agents won't see you unless you're SAG, have a polished resume, and a demo reel. Commercial agents are more lenient about that. What the best Commercial agents want to see on your resume are good commercial classes, improv, and cold reading.

      You can get an agent multiple ways. Here are a few common ways:
      -Mail in an unsealed manilla envelope with a CONCISE coverletter and headshot with the resume stapled on the back. If you have a demoreel include that too.
      -Attend a showcase and impress them. By showcase I do not mean scammy conventions like IMTA, IPOP, Proscout, or Best New Talent. I mean legit ones like at Actor Connection, Reel pros, Network Studios, etc.
      -Get a referral from a friend who is with the agency that you're interested in

      DON'T
      -Email them unless they tell you to. IT'S UNPROFESSIONAL!
      -Call unless they tell you to. ALSO UNPROFESSIONAL!
      -Walk in and ask for a meeting. UNPROFESSIONAL THREE!
      -Sign with them if they ask for upfront money, make you take new photos with THEIR photographer, or take THEIR classes. Agent's ONLY make money when you do. Agents usually make 10% on film/tv and commercials and 20% on commercial print.

    How do you change an RAR file into one that is accepted on windows media player?
    Hi, i have a film on my computer but its an RAR file and is not accepted on media player. Is there a way to convert it into one that is playable?? Also would this type of file be playable on an ipod (4th generation)?
    Thanks x

    • ANSWER:
      I use 7zip to open rar files. It is easy to use and free. You won't know for sure what kind of file the film is until you open it. To play on an ipod it would have to be an mpeg4. Chances are it is an avi file, just a guess, and there is a program called Videora that will convert that too. Videora is easy to use also and is free. Here are the links. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

  42. QUESTION:
    How to hold an open casting call?
    I need some actors for a short film my friends and I are shooting during the summer. We've already gotten some of our friends cast but we need more people.How do I put the word out that we're holding an open casting call? What info do I put? Where can I put it up? How do I audition people?
    Sorry, I live in the US.

    • ANSWER:
      Here are the steps on hosting an Open Call.

      1) Create a list of breakdowns (description of characters that you are still looking for).

      Here is an example:

      "DETECTIVE TOM" - Any Ethnicity. Male. 40-50. Not balding. Dark Hair. Not skinny, not too heavy. He is an obsessive, nerdy, borderline-autistic who had his lunch money stolen as a child and is now taking it out on the bank robbers.

      2) Depends on where you want to host the Open Audition. If you have access to an empty studio, a class room at school, that would be ideal. Otherwise, you can yahoo-search any Dance/Acting studios that's local to the area for rental. Determine the Date(s) and Time that you want to do the Open Audition.

      3) Creating an Open Casting Call Note. On your note, you should include a brief description of your project, the story line, compensation, production dates and production location, and open call date, time, and location. Then after that, you should list the character breakdowns that you are looking for.

      Here is an example:

      Open Casting Call for Short Film “Thanks Mom”

      "Thanks Mom" it is a film that tells the tale of two young filmmakers who make it through all the obstacles of producing an independent film only to face their greatest challenge yet: their mother.

      Filming Duration: July 9 thru July 13
      Filming Location:Chicago, IL
      Compensation: No Pay, but will provide Meal, Credit, and a Copy of the final film.
      Open Audition Date: June 19 from 5:00pm - 8:00pm
      Open Audition Location: Champion Dance Studio, 12345 Yahoo Street, 5th Floor, Room 1280, Chicagoo, IL.
      What to Bring:
      Prepare to read sides. Sides will be provided at the location. (if any of these characters have lines, then you can extract those lines from the script onto a seperate piece of paper. These are call 'sides.' Give the actors at least 5 minutes to look them over, and then call them in to perform those lines) If you don't have any sides, you can simple ask the Actor to prepare a 1-2 min. monologue.
      Please bring a copy of your headshot and resume.

      Character Breakdowns:

      "DETECTIVE TOM" Any Ethnicity. Male. 40-50. Skinny. Dark Hair. He is an obsessive, nerdy, borderline-autistic who had his lunch money stolen as a child and is now taking it out on the bank robbers.

      "SUSAN" Caucasian. 20-25. An eccentric young mother who is a bit too overbearing, but loving and caring to her core. Good comic ability a plus.

      4) Depends on where you are located, you can post an Open Casting Call notice online. Mandy.Com and Craigslist.Org are two most popular internet resource for free postings. I would also recommend you to include an email address that you feel comfortable with exposing to the public on your notice. Just incase if any of the actors have questions. They can also email you their headshot and resume, so you will get an idea WHO and how many people are actually coming to the Open Audition.

      5 - A) Setting up the Audition. Arrive at least 30 minutes before the Open Call time. Outside of the room, prepare a 'sign-in' sheet (Name, Name of Role, Telephone Number, and Email Address) - so when the actors arrive, they can sign in. (You will call them into the room to audition in the order of arrival) You can also leave your sides outside, the actors can study them.

      5 - B) Inside of the audition room, like American Idol, the 'judges' should be sitting behind a table. It's ideal that you have 2 - 3 people hosting the casting session. If you are using Sides for the audition, make sure you assign someone in your room to be the 'reader' (the reader will read lines of other characters than the auditioning actor)
      The director should focus on the Actor's performance. (Have a pen and note pad ready to take notes) The coordinator can Film the audition, monitor the session (making sure everything is on time and on schedule), calling people into the room, sending people out of the room after they are done.

      5 - C) After an Actor comes into the Room, here is a typical list of things that will take place.

      a. Director ask the Actor if he/she has any questions about the Sides/Characters.
      b. The Reader will start reading with the Actor. The Coordinator films the process (Optional)
      c. If needed the Director can give adjustments on the Actor's performance. (Example: "That's a good read. Let's try it again, 'Susan' is actually very sad in this scene, because her husband left her for another woman....")
      d. The Director/Coordinator explains the production schedule, location details, and see if there are going to be any schedule conflicts. At the same time, answer any production-related questions that the Actor may have.
      e. Tell the Actor by what day the casting decision will be made. Either the actor will be informed by phone, or by email. (Example: "We will be making the decision by Friday via Email. Thank you for coming.")
      f. The Coordinator walks the Actor out, and call the next Actor into the room.

      5 - D) Bring an envelope to collect Actors' headshot & resumes. (Keep them in file, incase you are planning to cast for any future projects) And make sure that the Actor's contact information are indicated on their resume. If they don't have a resume, make sure their Phone Number and Email address is clearly written on the back of their picture. The purpose of the taping of the audition, is that later, the Director and everyone else who's involved in the production can review their audition, and then make their choices on who to offer the role. If you are not planning to film the audition, make sure the Director take REALLY GOOD notes on each actor's performance. So after you seening 60 people's audition, you can still remember who gave a better audition.

      7) Upon offering the part to the selected actor. You need to provide the full script, wardrobe options, and the day & time for rehearsals or production meeting.

      Final Note: Always be friendly and open minded. You want the actors to do their best at the audition.

  45. QUESTION:
    What do people find interesting in the hunger games anyway?
    Book and film theres one killing after another. How is that not disturbing?

    • ANSWER:
      It's supposed to be disturbing and unfair -- that's one of the things about it, so you get the message. You really need to read the books -- Book 1 "The Hunger Games" is practically just and introduction.

      Possible spoilers:
      Even though I disagree with the author about some parts of it, I think it is one of the best book series to come out in a while, and it seems to have become a very popular choice for English / Literature assignments and for a few reasons I like it, as a whole. It is about women and men working together to change their world and they win, except, just like life, that win is at a terrible cost in lives and peace of mind and property.

      Katniss is a kick-a$$ female hero, almost goddess-like:

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artemis

      that undertakes the hero's journey:

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monomyth

      in a dystopian and sci-fi story universe along the lines of many of the great works of fiction that warns us about what our society could, all too easily, become, like these books:

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fahrenheit_451

      and

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nineteen_Eighty-Four

      and there are many allusions to the Roman Empire (some of whose characteristics we do not wish to copy) with the names and the provinces:

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Roman_Empire#Provinces

      And, even though she is just a “Coal Miner’s Daughter” she can sing and make the birds listen, just like: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loretta_Lynn

      It's all about love the Hunger Games, almost like Harry Potter, so if you look beneath the depressing surface, it is all about the kinds of love:

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Love_styles

      Katniss loves her sister with Agape - K volunteers in place of Prim.
      Finnick is a good-looking, desirable victor and is required to use love (Ludus) as a weapon that he turns to his advantage, over and above the designs of Snow.
      K and Gale have a Storge or Philia kind of love.
      K is required to love Peeta at first in a Pragma way to stay alive in the Games.
      Peeta loved K in an Eros kind of way.
      I think in the course of the book, there is little or nothing of the Mania kind of love, except maybe the people of Panem have a mania for the Mockingjay / Katniss, possibly evidenced by her visit to the field hospital in D8.

      Even though there is no religion apparent, Katniss’ sacrificing herself for the sake of an innocent and the whole bread thing is Christ-like:

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bread_of_Life_Discourse

      So, even though the body count was high and some of the events horrifying, in the end it is about people risking all they have (even more than their life – they risk their whole world) to defeat a totalitarian police state:

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Totalitarianism

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Police_state

      What is the moral of the story? Freedom is not free -- there is a price to be paid in blood and gold and even horrible memories for the survivors. We must be ever vigilant that we do not create a society that is oppressive like that one was.

      Sorry to drone on about it, but I think that is why it is so appealing.

    • ANSWER:
      You are burning the future of the American Film industry!

  2. QUESTION:
    What are your opinions on watching pirated movies?
    I really want to watch New Moon on the internet but i want to wait. What do you think about watching movies illegally on the internet. I've never done it before.

    • ANSWER:
      Look at it this way. If you created a film you spent much time and money on writing, producing, directing, staring in, building sets, costumes, props, make-up, special effects, advertising, music and so on, would you like some pube to pirate it for free? Would you not want to hunt that waste of oxygen down?

      Yeah, watching a film in a movie theater has become pricey- but it's still one of the cheapest forms of entertainment out there. I'm all for cracking down on video or audio pirates of any kind. We all want to be entertained, but where do people get off thinking that should be free? You want free, go to the library. They may not have the latest thing, but they often carry or can get a hold of anything else.

      Best buy does have the cool steel cover, but I would prefer to have the trio on my DVD.

      So with that all said, I believe Target has the best package out there.

  8. QUESTION:
    How do you get your cats to not jump on your counter?
    Someone suggested packing tape, which I did and it works. I put it up and they try it once and then wont go back but as soon as I remove the tape they might wait a day or 2 and the paw prints (dust from the litter box) are back. Any other suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      Here are several things you can do to keep kitty where he belongs:

      Make sure that your cat has other places to climb so that the countertop is not his only vertical challenge. Climbing frames positioned by a window, providing a perch with a view, may divert some attention from the counters.

      Make sure that your counters never have food items lying around on them. Always clean up properly by putting unused food away. A cat that finds morsels of food once in a while will keep looking for more for many moons.

      Make counters unattractive. Cats, generally, do not like the smell of citrus or disinfectants. Try using a countertop cleaner with a citrus odor or wash the countertops down with Pinesol® after use.

      Train your cat - preferably using "click and treat" methodology. Train your cat to jump down to the cue word "off." First train the cat to touch a wand (touch-click-food reward) that later serves as a target. When the wand is positioned over the counter, the cat will have to jump up on the counter to touch the wand and get the click and treat. (You can't teach a cat to jump off unless she is up in the fist place!). The wand is then lowered to floor level. The cat jumps down to touch it (click-treat). Finally the word "off" is interjected as the wand is lowered to the floor. Of course, you do not always need to use the wand once the behavior (jumping down) has been put "on cue." But rewards are necessary from time to time if the cat is to stay trained.

      Booby traps/mild punishers. Various booby traps have been invented to deter cats from counter surfing. Some of these deterrents include: putting cling film over the countertop, making a shallow tray out of aluminum foil and filling it with water, various springing devices (upside-down mousetraps or proprietary plastic jumping frogs), or attaching a black thread "trip wire" across the access to the counter and attaching it to a nearby pile of shake cans.

      More severe punishers. Sounding an air horn (boat horn/fog horn) at exactly the moment the cat's feet touch the countertop. You should hide when doing this. The idea is that the cat thinks that the counter made the noise, not you. Some people have resorted to electric shock pads that give the cat a mild shock when he jumps on the counter tough these can cause considerable distress to some cats.

      The only alternative is to teach yourself not to worry so much about your cat being up on the counters. This is the cognitive approach to therapy – for you.

      My cats free range across my countertops while I'm watching them because they know I don't care. I could yell at them and chase them off, as many people do, but why bother? All you teach your cat by this approach is that you are unpredictable, mentally unstable, and should be watched carefully for signs of sudden behavioral meltdowns. Then, when you're not around, your cat will cruise and patrol the counters as if nothing had changed. The only thing punishment teaches an animal is how to avoid the punisher ... you. With the remote punishers, the situation's a little more acceptable in the sense that it's the counter that they avoid.

  9. QUESTION:
    What are some of the easiest and most effective ways to be eco-friendly?
    I want to help the environment, and I don't feel I'm sufficiently informed. Help?

    • ANSWER:
      There are many ways to be Eco friendly it just depends on how much time and money you want to invest. Now some of the easiest ways an individual can start is by first NEVER littering, another is keep your car tuned up and recycle what ever you can.including used oil from your oil change.

      Use organic pesticides or introduce the natural enemy of a pest into your gardens and flower beds don't use commercial pesticides which end up in the water table you or someone else will drink from.

      Never burn anything other than wood or paper products in your bon fires and home fires.

      Use a brick or two in your toilet tank to conserve water.

      One that really gets me mad is to see someone throw trash and especially lit cigarettes out their windows of their cars.

      If you go hiking pack your trash back out from your camping or hiking and dispose of it in trash cans or dumpsters.

      DO NOT BUY SMALL FLORESCENT LIGHT BULBS! By LED lightbulbs because the mercury in the small twisted florescent bulbs will end up in the land fill even though they are being pushed on you by the media and advertising saying it saves energy, but it pollutes the land and water later down the road and besides LEDs use even less energy than florescence.

      Use manual can openers instead of electric one's in fact if you can do it by hand don't use an electric version of what ever tool you may use.

      Then there's the old if you turned it on turn it off, or if you opened it close it, if you raised it lower it, if you used it up replace it. If you can think of it do it.

      Use water wisely. Water your plants and garden in the evenings or mornings. Mulch your land waste from leaves and small branches to help your gardens.

      Then buy solar generators which can power most of your house without being on the grid and using oil.

      Ride a bike if you can instead of driving and make those driving trips count when you go out by doing multiple things in one trip.

      Also watch "the great global warming swindle" on Google for free and view some real science that doesn't involve Al Gore's folklore which by the way is totally debunked in this film.

      Do not fall for the ol' carbon footprint crap because that's just an elite agenda meant to tax you for breathing and expelling what the plants need to live so they can return to us oxygen that we breath, And the worst offenders like China won't pay a dime in taxes so there is really no benefit to the planet but rather to the globalist wallets.

      Remember global warming is a natural cycle controlled by the sun which is much more in control of our weather than we could ever be. Polar caps are melting on the moons of Mars and other planets without any SUV'S being there. It's the sun!

      Man is not the enemy of this planet he's just ignorant of how to properly exist along side nature. We need to return to the science of nature not the science of politics.

  10. QUESTION:
    How do you live life to the fullest if you are significantly constrained by your financial situation?
    I was just wondering if anyone has any ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      Ah!

      Nice one.

      Living life to the fullest in our modern day society appears to be linked to finances.

      But the TRUE meaning of life is not found in those green bit of paper, you know...

      Living life consciously and with intent and purpose is the TRUE fullfillment.

      Sound like an advert for a cult, so I do.

      What I mean is that the simple pleasures of life are those which, often, fullfill us more than those we pay for.

      Take the full moon the other night- watching it while driving home after a nice day having a cheap lunch with my friend and window shopping rounded off a perfect day in a perfect way. Had I spent money (have had an addiction to spending already- not nice) and just bought loads of stuff I'd not have had nearly as nice a time! I would have felt the adreniline for a moment and then crashed.

      So, yes, cheap and cheerful and FREE pleasures can make life very fullfilling indeed.

      Appreciation for nature (and doing something for it can even save you money!), art and socialisation are cheap and rewarding ways to "better" your life.

      Get out more. Enjoy the trees, the snow, the wind. Go to galleries and museums and appreciate the beauty you see.

      READ. Reading books can teach. LEARNING is a brilliant way of reaching fullfillment.

      Socialise. Join real life groups for stuff like dance, poetry, philosophy, politics (hehe- I get great fullfillment wishing I were world leader and teach our lot a lesson or two!) to challenge yourself.

      Art- ooooh! It is a lovely fullfilling thing. Go to galleries, museums and exhibitions. Go to the movies and see challenging, thought provoking films!

      :-)

      And remember- few things are as fullfilling as being a good person. Volunteering at your local charitable organisations is a good thing. I am a parent- THAT is a WONDERFULLY fullfilling occupation. And I work in my vocation- designing environmentally friendly lifestyle accessories. OK- it is my own company so it is doubly "satisfying".

  12. QUESTION:
    Is it right for religious people to be worried about porn becoming more violent?
    I heard this briefly mentioned on the radio the other day and I’m not sure if I’ve got all the details correct. But it seems that some religious person, probably a Catholic, spent some time studying available porn and was worried about the trend of porn becoming more violent. Is this really happening? Was porn in the 70’s more peaceful than today’s porn?

    • ANSWER:
      Porn in the 1970s was in movie theaters Desiree. Often at drive-ins. If you deployed to Vietnam in the late 1960s, when you got back, there were suddenly these ratings on movies: G, PG, R, X. The last one was for porn. R movies had some sex, but not graphic penetration scenes on a 50-foot-long screen. Soldiers were amazed. Never underestimate how low Americans will stoop to make a buck.

      Society looked the other way because hedonistic love was an even higher form of love than the hippies mythologically practiced in their cultish communes. The 1970s were great, don't get me wrong. But you have to realize the context (AGAIN) before you look at the event. There were no videocassettes -- do you remember VHS and Betamax? Porn fueled that technology. No one thought it would take off. Today we have Netflix DVDs and buck rental Redbox vids. The Japanese consumer electronics business was built on rock 'n' roll, but it skyrocketed with porn. You no longer go down to the bijou to sit in a theatre and watch Marilyn Chambers dress up like a chambermaid and play find the cobra with Jack Holmes. Debbie does everything today, anytime anywhere. I remember when I learned about these free porn sites on Foxnews a couple of years ago and finally realized what the nephew was referring to when he talked about porn. It's available two clicks from your screen in ways we never dreamed of in the 1970s. Back then, having a Playboy magazine in your mattress was a big deal. Mature men kept them in the bathroom. We were big time by golly. Free of repression.

      Sadomasochism, punk rock, bondage, cocaine, Judas Priest heavy metal, gang bangees and snuff films became more widespread in the 1980s it seems. Today, it is just another market segment. Violent porn has been around, but it is more prevalent and more available because people have not heeded the message of the Catholic Church. The industry -- while suffering from the pirate DVD trend -- is still producing. There are enough people looking for personal gratification to support porn AND Bible thumping. Even religious people are hedonists, and religion is their drug, not coca leaf, a vicarious double life or deviant sex. The gay pride movement has made hedonistic sex even more acceptable. Abortion -- don't get me started. All of these things are temporary movements. AIDS was a huge scare in the early 1980s. It was bizarre. But porn flourished even while the actors died left and right of the disease that rocked the fashion and entertainment industries. Funny, you didn't have very many priests dying of AIDS, but a few did. Psychology may one day provide answers, but it is a new science that is still working itself out. Quantum physics probably holds the key, but that may be another moon in Galileo's telescope. Reason never works as well as simple faith, and we need more of that than ever.

      Religious people, that is people who sacrifice for the Church (priests sacrifice earning money, having their own family, vast amounts of private time), have an obligation to speak out against events that obvioiusly put their fellow man's faith in peril. The truest love for you fellow man is to want them to get to heaven and to do everything in your puny power to help that happen. Porn can be very disgusting if you look at it with mature, critical eyes. If you've ever known anyone in the business or seen a porno filmed or been friends with a porn star, believe me, you realize just how fake it is. Fluff girls, penis pumps, Viagra, tape editing, lube, sound engineering, asynchronous scene framing.... all of these tricks of the trade make sex a cartoonish scene that is mimicked on these amateur sites without all the props. So porn has become a sport where individuals now attempt to replicate the fantasy world sex scenes they've so vigorously enjoyed on DVD or the net. It is only appealing to the immature or those who adopt an immature mindset to achieve some temporary emotional surge. If you are a grown up, or sexually mature, you know the transitory nature of sexual pleasure. As a woman, you're in gender culture that has used sex for centuries as a bargaining chip, and that's no different even today. Sex becomes the partner or husband's reward. When all we guys want is a beer, ESPN 1 and 2 on separate HDTV screens and chips. ......lol just kidding..... Ignoring the woman in your life is often what leads them to stoop to sex reward/refusal as a tactic. Men need to follow women on many issues, and I do believe most women wish porn was nonexistent. The porn industry would not exist without women willing to demean themselves, trust me. The gay porn biz would not be a big deal; there is no volume in that. At some point, the knowledge that hedonistic sex is transitory makes it extremely unfulfilling. At that point, you're growing up young'n. Keep the faith. We need you in the Catholic Church.

    What is a good (and free) website to watch movies?
    i'm looking for a free website that doesn't want me to fill out any surveys or that junk. I want all types of films ranging from Dracula to Thirteen (I realllly wanna watch that) and even new stuff like 2012 or New Moon. please just post a link, dankeee :)

    • ANSWER:
      I've seen dozens of working links online to both New Moon and 2012, too bad so many of them are crap quality. If you check out http://www.GRAB0lD.com , they add better copies as they become available. As soon as somebody sneaks a copy of the projection DVD out of the booth, Graboid should have it.

      Just don't use a torrent, you can be sure they will be logging IP addresses from all New Moon torrents.

    Sorry for any bad spelling!

    • ANSWER:
      You asked 2 questions. As for where you can find good Asian drama romance and TV shows:

      - http://dramafever.com - I'm not sure whether you can get dramafever.com in Australia, but that is an excellent website. A basic website is free and if you subscribe to one, the site will keep up with everything you have watched and let you go back to the exact spot in any episode where you last left off. You can also see other subscribers ratings of shows and you can sort shows by genre. The majority of the shows and dramas on this site are Korean. It has numerous other cool features, as well.

      - http://mysoju.com - great for finding dramas from different countries. It has some really good Japanese dramas and movies, which are a plus because Japanese dramas have less episodes than Korean ones

      - http://dramasub.com - comes out with eps quickly, and often the subbed eps show up in no time

      - http://dramacrazy.net

      - http://viikii.net - can be tedious to deal with at times, but is a faithful supplier to other sites

      - http://todou.com - this site is great because a lot of times you can see an entire episode as 1 file here

      - http://youtube.com - lots and lost of movies and dramas are on the tube.

      - http://veoh.com - This is where I found Hana Yori Dango

      - http://wiki.d-addicts.com - great place to read a synopsis of a drama, review its official tv ratings, find out who the entire cast is and review actors' and actresses' backgrounds. You can also download unsubbed files, find out what dramas will be coming out in the future and when and in which countries. Several other sites pull their synopsis from this site.

      - http://asianmediawiki.com - I recently discovered this site and I love it. It has some of the features of wiki.d-addicts, but it also shows past, present and future Asian movies and has trailers. It also allows members to submit reviews on movies, dramas and actors.

      Now for what to watch. If you want to see some dramas partially filmed in Australia the watch:

      - Creating Destiny (Korean) - The interesting thing about this one is that it shows some of the dating differences a couple run into b/c the guy is raised in Korea and the girl was raised mostly in Australia.
      - One Fine Day (Korean) - It has its moments, but I wouldn't rate it as a 5.
      - Sorry I Love You (Korean) - I tried to watch it but couldn't sit through it.

      As for Sekai no Chuushin de, Ai wo Sakebu, Diamond Girl and Attention Please, I have not watched them but I went to wiki.d-addicts and searched on Australia.

      As for absolute must-see dramas, here are my picks (I rated these as 5's on a scale of 1 to 5):

      Korean
      - Mischievous Kiss/ (called Playful Kiss on dramafever) this is funny and lighthearted. I don't rate it a 5, but I listed it because I make reference to it below.

      - Goong (Comedy, Romance) if you liked Playful Kiss then you will love Goong.

      - We Got Married Season 1 (Reality Show, Romance) this is the only thing on my list that I rated as 5+. I don't think I've ever laughed this much. I've seen bits of Season 2, but Season 1 was so good that I know I will absolutely watch it again

      - Painter of the Wind (Historical, Romance, Gender Bender) I have a thing for historical dramas and Moon Geun Young did a great job in her role

      - IRIS (Action, Romance) I didn't believe the hype and stayed away from this for a long time. When I finally gave in and watched it I was glad that I did

      - Chuno (Action, Romance, Historical) Every time I think of this drama I want to watch it again

      - Sungkyunkwan Scandal (Historical, Romance) The last ep comes out today. My Korean is great, but I watch this one without the subs as soon as its online so that I can find out what's going to happen next. Yes, it is THAT good!

      Japanese (are typically 12 episodes or less)
      - Boku to Kanojo to Kanojo no Ikiru Michi (Melodrama) this is a heart warming story. No one dies, which is a plus for me,

      - Kaikyou o Wataru Violin (Melodrama) this one is a true story and only 2 or 3 eps.

      - Koizora (Melodrama, Romance) you can watch the movie or the drama of this. They are both equally good. The drama is just more info, of course, and the characters are different in each.

      - Shokojo Seira (A little of everything) A Little Princess is one of my favorite movies from when I was a kid and this version was an excellent rendition. Even my mom watched this and was glued to the screen

      - Last Friends (Romance, Melodrama) I saw that someone else recommended this on Y!A to someone so I checked it out. I am glad I did.

      - Majou no Jouken (Romance, Melodrama) Not quite rated as a 5, but it is definitely a must-see.

      I have a few more 5's on my list, but this is a good start.

  15. QUESTION:

    • ANSWER:
      Pan's Labyrinth here's the plot for the movie:

      The film opens with a fairy tale. In it, Princess Moanna, whose father is the king of the underworld, becomes curious about the world above. When she goes to the surface, the sunlight blinds her and erases her memory. She becomes very ill and eventually dies. The king believes that her spirit will come back to the underworld someday.

      The story cuts to post-Civil War Spain in 1944, after Francisco Franco has come into power. Ofelia, a young girl who loves fairy tales, travels with her pregnant mother Carmen to meet Captain Vidal, her new stepfather and father of Carmen's unborn child. Vidal, the son of a famed commander who died in Morocco, believes strongly in fascism and was assigned to root out any anti-fascist rebels.

      Ofelia discovers a large insect resembling a stick insect which she believes to be a fairy. It follows her to the mill where Vidal is stationed and leads Ofelia into an ancient labyrinth nearby. Before Ofelia can enter, she is stopped by Mercedes, one of Vidal's maids who is spying for the rebels. That night, the insect appears in Ofelia's bedroom, where it changes into a fairy and leads her through the labyrinth. There, she meets the faun, who believes her to be Princess Moanna and gives her three tasks to complete before the full moon to ensure that her "essence is intact". Meanwhile, Vidal's cruel and sociopathic nature is revealed when he brutally murders two individuals who had been detained on suspicion of being rebel allies and who may merely have been farmers.

      Ofelia completes the first task of retrieving a key from the belly of a giant toad, but she becomes worried about her mother whose condition is worsening. The faun gives Ofelia a mandrake root, which instantly begins to cure her mother's illness.

      Accompanied by three fairy guides, Ofelia then completes the second task of retrieving an ornate dagger from the lair of the Pale Man, a child-eating monster who sits silently in front of a large feast. Although she was gravely warned not to consume anything, she eats two grapes, awakening him. He eats two of the fairies and chases her, but she manages to escape. Infuriated at her disobedience, the faun refuses to give her the third task.

      Meanwhile, Vidal becomes increasingly vicious, torturing a captured rebel and then killing the doctor who euthanized the tortured prisoner to stop his pain. Vidal catches Ofelia tending to the mandrake root, and Carmen throws it into the fireplace, where it then begins to writhe and scream in agony. Instantly, Carmen develops painful contractions and dies giving birth to a son. Vidal discovers that Mercedes is a spy, and he captures her and Ofelia as they attempt to escape. Ofelia is locked in her bedroom, and Mercedes is taken to be tortured; however, she frees herself, badly injures Vidal, and flees into the woods, where the rebels rescue her.

      The faun returns to Ofelia and gives her one more chance to prove herself. He tells her to take her baby brother into the labyrinth. Ofelia steals the baby after sedating Vidal; although disoriented, Vidal continues to chase her through the labyrinth while the rebels attack the mill. The faun tells Ofelia that the portal to the underworld will open only with an innocent's blood, so he needs a drop of her brother's blood. Ofelia refuses to harm her brother, and eventually Vidal finds her, seemingly talking to herself as the faun is not visible through his eyes. The faun leaves Ofelia to her choice, and Vidal takes the baby away from her, shooting her immediately after.

      When he leaves the labyrinth the rebels and Mercedes are waiting for him. Knowing that he will die, he calmly hands Mercedes the baby. Vidal takes out his watch, and tells Mercedes to tell his son the exact time of his fathers' death. Mercedes interrupts, telling him that his son will never even know his name. Pedro, one of the rebels and Mercedes' brother, draws his pistol and shoots Vidal in the right cheek, killing him.

      As Mercedes enters the labyrinth and comforts the dying girl, drops of Ofelia's blood spill onto the altar that is supposed to lead her into the underworld. Ofelia is reunited with the king and queen of the underworld. The faun is present too, and the king reveals to her that by shedding her own blood instead of the blood of an innocent, she has completed the final task and proven herself to be Princess Moanna. In the mortal world, Ofelia dies and Mercedes mourns her death. In an epilogue, a narration dictates that Princess Moanna ruled the underworld with a just and kind heart, but left behind "small traces of her time on earth, visible only to those who know where to look."

    What is your favorite Pink Floyd album?
    Feel free to list multiple favorites. I won't say mine till the end.

    • ANSWER:
      My top five. Sorry, The Wall is a fantastic, epic album, but I can't resist the purety, the clarity and the absolutely perfect, pristine sound on the first two. My inner music critic says, "The Wall is the best", but the pleasure center of my brain says, "let's listen to the pretty ones first".

      Dark Side of the Moon
      Wish You Were Here
      The Wall
      Meddle (Echoes tranports me to other worlds)
      A Momentary Lapse of Reason (It proved there was still life after the mad genius, Waters left)

      Animals and Umma Gumma come in off the bench. Animals gets playing time if I am in a dark or pissed off mood. Umma Gumma gets in the game when..... Oh damn it! That's right, I forgot, I don't do that anymore. Oh well, it's still a good album.

      I remember spending the night at my friend's house, 13 years old, On the spur of the moment, we went to the midnight movies to watch the film, Pink Floyd Live at Pompeii (1972). Seeing those guys playing in the ruins of Pompei, hearing them on a great new sound system in a darkened theater. By the end of month, we convinced all of our friends to go see it. I must've seen it six times. I've loved them ever since.

      starring Michael Pare, Mariel Hemingway, Mason Gamble, Primo as Thor (amazing animal!)
      IMDb synopsis:
      The film is about one man's struggle to contain the curse he hides within and his last-ditch attempt to free himself with the love of his family. When it looks as if he is losing his battle and endangering all he holds most dear, the family dog, Thor, is the last hope for his family's survival and the end to the curse. // NOTE: He does chain himself to a tree in the woods in an effort to keep from killing again.

  20. QUESTION:
    Why does everyone hate Twilight and Justin Bieber so much?
    Not, "Just cuz they suck" but why? Or if you love them, why?
    WTF Granger? I didn't say I was bothered. I was just curious. Why the hell did you even answer this question anyway. Your answer was just a waste of space.

    • ANSWER:
      Because both are not deserving for the popularity they are given.

      For the past two years (and without a doubt the next two) the movies have been nominated in nearly every category at the MTV Movie Awards, and winning every one of them. Because MTV doesn't monitor IP addresses and allows people to vote multiple times, New Moon beat out Alice in Wonderland and Avatar (both of which grossed over a billion dollars), The Hangover (the highest grossing comedy ever which, like Avatar, won Best Picture at the Golden Globes), and Half-Blood Prince. Got even worse in 2010, when Eclipse beat Inception Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Black Swan and The Social Network in categories like Best Film, Best Male Performance, Best Female Performance, and Best Fight (Yes, the films with wizards blowing up a restaurant with spells and two guys fighting in a rotating hall got beaten by vampires)

      But there’s more reasons to why Twilight is so hated-

      here: http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Do-The-Math-8-Reasons-Harry-Potter-Is-Greater-Than-Twilight-13981.html

      and here: 
      Edward and Bella's relationship as twisted, controlling and abusive due to things like Edward breaking into Bella's home, watching her sleep, stealing her belongings, breaking her truck so she can't see other people, putting her under house arrest, threatening, talking down to and manipulating her. Not to mention when he leaves her in New Moon–he (seemingly) wipes all traces of himself in her house, including photographs she took of him, and with zero emotion or pain whatsoever tells Bella he doesn't love her anymore.

      Bella has Borderline Personality Disorder, she has very variable moods, black and white thinking, idealization (like when she describes vampires and especially Edward)), unstable interpersonal relationships (Edward or Jacob), unstable self-image (she describes herself plan but it doesn't seem like it), no identity of her own, very insecure (that's actually what causes the "plot"), she's suicidal etc. Also, Bella is a selfish, heartless sociopath who has zero empathy for anybody else. Jacob is content to let Bella use him and manipulate him into doing things for her while getting nothing in return because he's nursing the vain hope that Bella will eventually forget Edward and fall in love with him.

      Yet so many girls just squeal over how cute Edward is and that Twilight really interesting..... I have read Fanfic for FREE and they’re more orginal than Twilight. Also if you look through a cliche Shojo Manga, the similarities between the Genre and Twilight are cannot be ignored.

      As for Beiber, Teen girls make him more popular than he should be. Go to YouTube search "Baby" and haters will tell you it's annoying as "Friday" By Rebecca Black.

      http://www.anime-planet.com/anime/tsukuyomi-moon-phase

      The story is about the relationship between freelance photographer Kouhei Morioka and Hazuki, a teenager who descends from a royal vampire lineage. At the beginning of the story, Kouhei travels to a castle in Germany to take photographs of paranormal phenomena for his friend Hiromi, who is the editor of an occult magazine. At the castle, Kouhei meets Hazuki, who feeds on Kouhei's blood and claims him as her unwilling servant. Although this "blood pact" is supposed to bind Kouhei to Hazuki as her obedient slave, her act has no effect on Kouhei. Following an action-packed sorcerers' battle in which Kouhei and his cousin manage to free Hazuki from her captivity in the dreary castle, Hazuki travels to Tokyo, and takes up residence with Kouhei in his grandfather's house in Japan. Hazuki claims that, because she fed on his blood, Kouhei is now her servant, but Kouhei continually refuses to obey her, especially when he thinks her requests are unreasonable. Despite their fighting, the relationship between the duo progresses over time - even in the face of repeated attacks by opposing vampires - until Kouhei becomes determined to protect Hazuki from the vampire servants of her family, who are determined to retrieve her by whatever means necessary.

  27. QUESTION:
    Do love triangles and serious history movies mix? I do not think so. What are your thoughts?
    I would like to know what you history buff thoughts are on History movies, that take themselves seriously and they add love triangles. Does this mix? I just finished watching the movie: Enemy at the Gates and found myself frustrated and disappointed. The first 30 minutes I was saying to myself, I am buying this movie and by the time I was half way through it I was fast-forwarding the DVD player (and glad I did not buy it) to get through the love story. They did the very same thing with the movie, Pearl Harbor and it distracts from the seriousness of the history content of the movie. Lets look at some other great classic war movies as well: Patton, Saving Private Ryan, Platoon, Apocalypse Now (this movie had Playboy bunnies but no love triangle), Full Metal Jacket, Dirty Dozen, The Deer Hunter, The Bridge over the River Kwai, all these classics had no love triangle and most of them won academy awards.

    My question is, am I the only one that finds annoyance in this?
    Edit update: The reason I wanted to point out those other war movies with no love triangles is they were for the most part, hits. That point being made, Hollywood does not need to add the love story to make the war movie a hit. Jack if it is only about demographics then why were the other movies I mentioned with no love triangles hits? Personally, I think it is a few (not all thank goodness) miss-guided studios that think they must have a love story to make a war movie work. For example, one could argue that Dr. Zhivago is a war movie with a love triangle but lets face it we all knew that it was a love story when we went to see it. By using Dr. Zhivago the movie industry should see that there could be a clear dividing line between love stories and a good historical war movie. Personally, I have enjoyed a few good love story movies and I understand the need for telling them, however, not when you are telling an important part of history as it distracts form the story.
    Serving Jesus, I totally disagree with you. You do not need a love story to show that we need to make the characters more real. Could you image the loss of respect movies like Patton, Platoon, Saving Privet Ryan would have had to endured if the directors had decided to put in a love story right in the middle of those movies. These three movies are major academy award winners and speak for themselves. Enemy at the Gates was another one of those war movies that had no business getting a love story thrown in right in the middle of the story. It was as if the director threw the love story in to slow down the pace and that ended up making the movie to long. Ron Pearlman saved the movie with his performance for about 10 minutes then he was shoot and we where right back to the love slop again. What a disappointment.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Shellback,

      EDIT PER ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:

      You ask a good follow-up. The fact is, all of the movies you point out (but one) were made 30 to 40 years ago when a totally different demographic was in play. Look at your list -- the only modern film you have in there is Pvt. Ryan, and that's easy to explain -- Steven Spielberg. When your name is Spielberg you get to write your own ticket -- remember, the guy has his own studio "Dreamworks."

      But in general, it has to be said, yeah, of course, every once in a blue moon Hollywood will produce a genuinely historical drama and leave out the sentimentality -- but those films are very rare. So when I speak of the power of demograhics, The best I can do is make a general statement about the way most people behave most of the time. Obviously there are going to be exceptions that pop up from time to time; but as you well know, the trend isn't toward greater accuracy, but to taking greater liberties with the subject matter.

      I haven't seen the film yet, but there's a new film coming out about the "Zodiac Killer." And from what I've read, the real meat of this film doesn't deal with the murders or even the killer, but with the marital problems of the reporter focusing on this case. Go figure!

      And also -- please note -- when I say these things, I'm not disagreeing with you. I actually DO agree. I think there always has been, and always will be a big market for quality, historically accurate films that have the confidence in their material to tell a story without adding any romantic fluff. But I don't work in Hollywood.

      Unfortunately, the people who work out there are slaves to the demographics, and because of the great cost of making films, tend not to want to rock the boat. There can be no doubt but that the powers-that-be out there continually underestimate the intelligence and taste of movie goers. So they continually go with "Formula Plots." And whether you and I like it, "romance" is now considered an integral part of the formula.

      P.S. As I said above, most of the films you mentioned were made 30 to 40 years ago. Did you notice that that's when the C&W singers I mentioned were all doing their thing as well. The demographics back then were different for everything.

      ========================================

      I know what you mean, I payed good money to see "Pearl Harbor," and was so turned off by the gushing sentimentality that I walked out halfway through the thing. Honestly, I did. The same with "Titanic," a certified piece of god-awful dreck that girls of all ages turned into a box-office bonanza.

      As one who knows something about the science of demographics, I can tell you for sure, it's all driven by statistical analysis.

      Many aspects of the entertainment world are driven by demography, and nothing more so than movies. Detailed analysis of consumer tendencies reveals that the biggest determiners of movies are teenage boys and women. Slasher films, and ridiculous pseudo-historical monstronsities like "300" are made for teenage boys, and a great deal of the rest of films are made because of women.

      Outside of the lucrative "Teen Market," the boyfriend or husband defers to the woman's choice of what films to see. This gives women a disproportionate power in what kinds of films get made. And as a previous answerer stated, most (but by no means all) women are turned off by straight historical film-making.

      You didn't ask this, but I'll throw it out for free anyway. The same phenomenon is true in Country music. Many years ago, I used to be a fan of Country Music. These were the days of Kristofferson, Cash, Paycheck, Jennings, Haggard and Jones.

      At THAT time, Country Music used to be known as "White Soul," and it was a period when men were the majority listeners. But NOW, women make up the majority listeners to C & W, and you can hear it in the cheap, sentimental, smarmy crap that gets that put out by singers today.

      There was a time when Country was biting, and cutting edge; and now it's about love-sick cow-pokes moaning about how much they love and miss their wives. Sorry to seem so misogynistic, but I hate to see a great art form ruined.

      I'm sure your answerers will give me pleanty of "thumbs downs" for this, but the "Feminization" of the arts (movies included) makes me sick.

      In any event -- cheers, mate.

  28. QUESTION:
    Isn't it the best when you see a movie you anticipated to be JUST NOT FOR YOU, only to end up enjoying it?
    With a title like Eat Pray Love
    I thought it would be either
    sickeningly contrived
    or
    painfully simplistic.

    Turns out it is fun, sweet, balanced and gently profound.

    So, yay to them! (yes, I'll watch it again sometime.)

    • ANSWER:
      Having grown up in the Fifties, I've never judged movies by their titles (for example: "I Married a Monster from Outer Space" is much better than anyone might guess). But, I've heard of movies or the avid praise for them and expected to not like them. Films that surprised me, several of which I was *figuratively dragged to the theater* to see, are:
      *One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
      Unconditional Love (2002)
      A.I. Artificial Intelligence
      *All the President's Men
      Ruthless People
      Pumpkinhead
      *Paper Moon
      Encino Man
      Zoolander
      Clueless
      All are on my list of favorites!

      I must note that my younger sister was the one who dragged me to those three movies. On the other hand, she was grateful that I dragged her to "Tommy", "The Little Prince" and "Butterflies Are Free".

    How was your first same-sex experience?How did you feel afterwards?
    Well for me I felt like it felt right.I didnt feel like it was wrong or like I felt guilty.And I was obviously nervous lol I would like to hear your story keep it PG jk

    • ANSWER:
      experience as in sex or just any kind of experience? i kissed a girl when i was around 6 at summer day camp. we met up i the bathroom and kissed over and over during nap time. then we got caught. :

      as far sex...i was in high school. yeah okay PG...

      i felt like i had just discovered an entirely different universe from what i had known up to that point and i wanted to go back as soon as possible!!

      i was only a little nervous but not too much. it wasnt like my first time with a guy. i mean both times i did it because i really wanted to have a new experience and i wasnt necessarily in love with either of them. i really liked both of them and i felt a connection with both. the first time with a guy was way too quick in comparison ( i mean the dynamics are a bit different of course lol) and there was a bit of blood and afterward i just kind of had this feeling that i had done what i wanted to do. more of a "mission accomplished" feeling and not so much "i really enjoyed that" feeling at all.

      it was perfect with my first time with a girl because my parents went out of town for three days to celebrate their anniversary- kind of like a mini second honey moon. we actually planned on doing it before then but i convinced her that this would be much better! i had the house to myself for three whole days so i invited her to come over and stay. i think there was something so cool about being able to walk around my parents house with the beautiful funny smart girl that i really cared about kissing her and dancing with her just as if we were free and open and living on our own. so we did the whole candle light thing. no music. we waited until around midnight/early morning and it was so perfect...until we tried the strap on. lol

      i ordered this strap on online because i saw one being used in a porno. XD that didnt go too well the first time around...it was really awkward and kind of impersonal like a barrier between us plus we hadnt used one before so neither of us knew what to do. plus we had no lube or anything! it was like a scene from a comedy film. that part was a disaster lol so once we ditched the strap on and we started over it was great. though we didnt just jump into it. we decided to wait until the next night and set up everything the exact same way but just do it naturally. we went out to eat first, came home and had a snack and watched some tv and we laid in bed talking for a while getting more and more relaxed and then it just happened naturally. it was amazing and we just connected so well. again the fact that i was alone at home pretty much made it that much more amazing. we cuddled after and just laid in bed. then we did it again during the day. lol very intimate and ideal. i never told my parents even after i just recently came out to them (im in college). i kind of feel like that is something secret from them that they dont deserve to know because they would kind of try to impose their beliefs on it and take away from how important it was to me. they wouldnt try to understand it.

      i have never really been ashamed about my sexuality even when people try to make me feel that way. sexuality is something beautiful and sex is a way of connecting on different levels - something raw and primal or spiritual and intense. its all good and not wrong at all.

      now that you know my life story ill be going...lol

  31. QUESTION:
    Where did the term, "Brother sun, sister moon," come from?
    Sounds Pagan, but I just heard a Christian minister say it.

    • ANSWER:
      Francesco Bernardone (Graham Faulkner) comes back home to Assisi in 1200 A.D. nervously exhausted by the wars. His well-to-do parents are quick to assure the townspeople that he is not a coward. The young man languishes in bed with nightmares of battle while his loving mother pampers him. His father, a brutish merchant obsessed with success, cannot understand his son's malady.

      One day, Francesco alights from his bed at the chirping of a small bird. He follows a ray of sunshine to the balcony and then walks across the roof to fetch the bird. It is the beginning of his awakening to a new life. He spends days in the lush fields near Assisi. Claire (Judi Bowker), a pretty young neighbor, tells him that the villagers think he's berserk — after all, he loves flowers, chases butterflies, and sings like a bird. When he went off to war, he was judged sane and bright.

      In the Roman Catholic church, the wealthy sit jewel-bedecked and passive while the poor are huddled in the rear of the church. During the Mass, Francesco sees the eyes of the kingly Christ on the altar cross open. He screams "No!" and is removed from the church. Later when he flings his father's silks and fine clothes to the poor of the streets, he is beaten and taken before the Bishop. There, in front of the authorities and the poor, Francesco makes his break with family and wealthy community. Quoting John 3:6 — "that which is born of the flesh is flesh and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit" — he takes off his clothes, giving them to his weeping father, and tells him that there are no more fathers, no more sons. He will become a beggar like Christ and seek happiness and peace of mind. He will be as free as the creatures of the earth.

      Francesco's retreat is the beginning of a life of self-sacrifice. His friends eventually gather around him, and together they restore a ruined chapel in the fields near the city. There the poor, the physically scarred, and the weak find a home. Francesco and his community of brothers beg for food to survive and worship the Christ on the cross who died with his eyes open, a poor man. The simple folk come by droves to the community. But their church is burned by the Bishop in hopes that Francesco and his followers will be reconciled to the city. Instead, he goes to Rome to obtain a meeting with Pope Innocent III (Alec Guinness). Francesco is blessed and told that he puts the rich holy men to shame. He returns to Assisi renewed.

      Franco Zeffirelli, Suso Cecchi D'Amico, Kenneth Ross, and Lina Wertmuller co-authored the screenplay with some fictionalizations added to the true story of St. Francis of Assisi. Brother Sun, Sister Moon is a gorgeous piece of filmmaking with opulent outdoor photography and stunning views of Assisi, the towers of San Gimignamo, and Monreale's great basilica. The folk songs — written and sung by Donovan — give the film its parabolic beauty and emotional impact. The fresh good looks and remarkably sensitive acting by Graham Faulkner and Judi Bowker (who joins Francesco and his brothers) most likely will draw many young people into this very touching account of the early life of St. Francis.

    • ANSWER:
      Mary Lou Maynard, the farmers daughter, had decided to break free from her father's tyranny and get a job away from home! She felt her current existence was between two lost worlds and had dreams of Islands in the sky!
      At 19 years old all she had ever done was work on her dad's farm and in the past year go on a few "supervised" dates with Big Jim McClain, the strapping cowboy from the neighboring Mclain Farm. She wanted more!
      Although she enjoyed Big Jim's attentions, she hankered to see what the world outside had to offer!
      As luck would have it the new Iron Man Bar and Grill had advertised for a bartender and Mary Lou had applied for and gotten the job!
      When the Macahans brothers, who owned the bar, had seen her walking in they had nearly dropped dead at their good fortune!!
      Mary Lou was GORGEOUS!!!
      Counting their blessings they hired her on the spot!
      As they expected Mary Lou was a BIG draw!
      Within a week business had tripled and the bar was filled with cowboys vying for the attentions of the heart-breakingly beautiful Mary Lou.
      One man in particular, a man from Texas, named Hondo Honcho was truly smitten!
      Night after night he sat at the bar in his big white cowboy hat mooning over the lovely lass.
      This did NOT sit well with Big Jim McLain, who had also been spending every night at the bar watching the fools drool over HIS gal!!
      One night things came to a head.
      Hondo was semi-smashed and had written a poem for Mary Lou, which he recited at the bar:

      "Roses are red, violets are blue
      Can you give me a kiss
      When your shift is through?"

      Big Jim had heard it and not liked it a bit!!
      "Well, well well...So the Lone Ranger is also a poet....sounds like you need to try out that sorry ass poetry on your horse"
      Hondo was non-plussed by the barb and was in fact feeling very philosophical and non confrontational!
      "I see you have many rivers to cross my friend before you can understand my gifts"
      McLain was NOT amused!
      "I'll cross your river RIGHT now!!"
      He lunged for Hondo who deftly sidestepped him.
      Big Jim wound up on the floor and Mary Lou was immediately at his side!
      "I see stars in my crown" was all Big Jim could say!
      Mary Lou scowled at Hondo.
      "You're cut off!!"
      She motioned to the bouncers who quickly removed Hondo.
      As she ministered to Big Jim he laughed to himself thinking,
      "One up for me, one down for the Lone Ranger!!!"

    where can i download movies for free on my laptop?
    i just wanna be able to download movies and watch them on my laptop:)

    • ANSWER:
      Legal?

      The Internet Archive - This is the motherlode for all kinds of free media (it's even got video games). The Archive has loads of old movies, foreign films, documentaries, and more. There's even a couple of movies about ice cream (hey, we just blog about this stuff -- we can't explain it either).

      Emol - If comedy and cartoons are what you're after, Emol.org is the place to go. Here's where you'll find Charlie Chaplin, The Three Stooges, Bugs Bunny, and Popeye.

      AngryAlien - Just because none of these sites are likely to have the latest box office blockbuster available, that doesn't mean you can't still watch Fight Club, Pulp Fiction, or Star Wars. In less than 30 seconds. Acted out by bunnies.

      PublicDomainTorrents - Head here for B-movies "Like Attack of the Giant Leeches", "Jesse James Meets Frankenstein's Daughter" (wonder what that love child looks like?), and "Track of the Moon Beast". On the other hand, you'll also find "Night of the Living Dead" on this site -- so it's not all bad.

      AtomFilms - There are some very creative films on this site made up of mostly user-created content. AtomFilms is a service of MTV Networks that serves up content to mobile phones and Web sites, but since they're partnered with Comedy Central and Spike TV there are a few gems on here if you poke around a bit.

  37. QUESTION:
    Is there a movie character you can strongly identify with?
    In some way or another... this question feels a tad cheesy... but a character you think you have a lot of common with or something. If not, is there a movie that you can really connect with?

    Feel free to say something humorous, serious or sarcastic- whatever you feel like. I'm a bit bored, anyway.

    BQ: Smashing Pumpkins or Nine Inch Nails?
    BBQ: Unoriginal, I know but last 5 films you watched, and can you rate them out of 10?

    • ANSWER:
      "cheesy" you say... i like cheesy.

      Well, here goes: I'm a John Cusack fan, i really connect with some (not all) of his characters he plays.
      High Fidelity (2000) is one of my favorites from Cusack, not because of his story with multiple girlfriends because i have never been that 'lucky', but there is something about this particular film that i simply cant narrow it down to why. Basicly when i see him on screen i feel i am living it.

      Music: anything that makes me feel good about my self.(sometimes its instrumental - like chill out mp3's )

      Last 5 movies: (wow, the test of memory:)

  43. QUESTION:
    Did Neil armstrong really step on the moon..or was it another hoax like the UFO?
    I dont believe he's really been on the moon or he was the first person to land on the moon.It was just the way NASA spread this false picture which was shot in the arizona desert to collect funds for research.

    • ANSWER:
      How can the flag be fluttering," the 47 year old American kept asking himself, "when there's no wind on the atmosphere free Moon?" That moment was to be the beginning of an incredible Space odyssey for the self-taught engineer from New Jersey. He started investigating the Apollo Moon landings, scouring every NASA film, photo and report with a growing sense of wonder, until finally reaching an awesome conclusion: America had never put a man on the Moon. The giant leap for mankind was fake.

      It is of course the conspiracy theory to end all conspiracy theories. But Rene has now put all his findings into a startling book entitled NASA Mooned America. Published by himself, it's being sold by mail order - and is a compelling read.

      The story lifts off in 1961 with Russia firing Yuri Gagarin into space, leaving a panicked America trailing in the space race.

      At an emergency meeting of Congress, President Kennedy proposed the ultimate face saver, put a man on the Moon. With an impassioned speech he secured the plan an unbelievable 40 billion dollars. And so, says Rene (and a growing number of astro-physicists are beginning to agree with him), the great Moon hoax was born.

      Between 1969 and 1972, seven Apollo ships headed to the Moon. Six claim to have made it, with the ill fated Apollo 13--whose oxygen tanks apparently exploded halfway--being the only casualties.

      But with the exception of the known rocks, which could have been easily mocked up in a lab, the photographs and film footage are the only proof that the Eagle ever landed. And Rene believes they're fake. For a start, he says, the TV footage was hopeless. The world tuned in to watch what looked like two blurred white ghosts gambol threw rocks and dust. Part of the reason for the low quality was that, strangely, NASA provided no direct link up. So networks actually had to film "man's greatest achievement" from a TV screen in Houston--a deliberate ploy, says Rene, so that nobody could properly examine it.

      By contrast, the still photos were stunning. Yet that's just the problem. The astronauts took thousands of pictures, each one perfectly exposed and sharply focused. Not one was badly composed or even blurred. As Rene points out, that's not all:

      The cameras had no white meters or view finders. So the astronauts achieved this feet without being able to see what they were doing.
      There film stock was unaffected by the intense peaks and powerful cosmic radiation on the Moon, conditions that should have made it useless.
      They managed to adjust their cameras, change film and swap filters in pressurized clubs. It should have been almost impossible to bend their fingers. .
      Award winning British photographer David Persey is convinced the pictures are fake. His astonishing findings are explained alongside the pictures on these pages, but the basic points are as follows:

      The shadows could only have been created with multiple light sources and, in particular, powerful spotlights. But the only light source on the Moon was the sun.
      The American flag and the words "United States" are always brightly lit, even when everything around is in shadow.
      Not one still picture matches the film footage, yet NASA claims both were shot at the same time.
      The pictures are so perfect, each one would have taken a slick advertising agency hours to put them together. But the astronauts managed it repeatedly.
      David Persey believes the mistakes were deliberate, left there by "whistle blowers", who were keen for the truth to one day get out. If Persey is right and the pictures are fake, then we've only NASA's word that man ever went to the Moon. And, asks Rene, why would anyone fake pictures of an event that actually happened?

      The questions don't stop there. Outer space is awash with deadly radiation that emanates from solar flares firing out from the sun. Standard astronauts orbiting earth in near space, like those who recently fixed the Hubble telescope, are protected by the earth's Van Allen belt. But the Moon is 240,000 miles distant, way outside this safe band. And, during the Apollo flights, astronomical data shows there were no less than 1,485 such flares.

      John Mauldin, a physicist who works for NASA, once said shielding at least two meters thick would be needed. Yet the walls of the Lunar Landers which took astronauts from the spaceship to the moons surface were, said NASA, "about the thickness of heavy duty aluminum foil". How could that stop this deadly radiation? And if the astronauts were protected by their space suits, why didn't rescue workers use such protective gear at the Chernobyl meltdown, which released only a fraction of the dose astronauts would encounter? Not one Apollo astronaut ever contracted cancer--not even the Apollo 16 crew who were on their way to the Moon when a big flare started.

      "They should have been fried," says Rene. Furthermore, every Apollo mission before number 11 (the first to the Moon) was plagued with around 20,000 defects a-piece. Yet, with the exception of Apollo 13, NASA claims there wasn't one major technical problem on any of their Moon missions. Just one defect could have blown the whole thing. "The odds against this are so unlikely that God must have been the co-pilot," says Rene.

      Several years after NASA claimed its first Moon landing, Buzz Aldrin "the second man on the Moon"--was asked at a banquet what it felt like to step on to the lunar surface.

      Aldrin staggered to his feet and left the room crying uncontrollably. It would not be the last time he did this. "It strikes me he's suffering from trying to live out a very big lie," says Rene. Aldrin may also fear for his life. Virgil Grissom, a NASA astronaut, was due to pilot Apollo 1. In January 1967, he baited the Apollo program by hanging a lemon on his Apollo capsule (in the US, unroadworthy cars are called lemons) and told his wife Betty: "if there is ever a serious accident in the space program, it's likely to be me."

      Nobody knows what fuelled his fears, but by the end of the month he and his two co-pilots were dead, burnt to death during a test run when their capsule, pumped full of high pressure pure oxygen, exploded. Scientists couldn't believe NASA's carelessness--even a chemistry student in high school knows high pressure oxygen is extremely explosive. In fact, before the first manned Apollo fight even cleared the launch pad, a total of 11 would be astronauts were dead. Apart from the three who were incinerated, seven died in plane crashes and one in a car smash. Now this is a spectacular accident rate.

      "One wonders if these 'accidents' weren't NASA's way of correcting mistakes," says Rene. "Of saying that some of these men didn't have the sort of 'right stuff' they were looking for."

      NASA won't respond to any of these claims, their press office will only say that the Moon landings happened and the pictures are real. But a NASA public affairs officer called Julian Scheer once delighted 200 guests at a private party with footage of astronauts apparently on a lunar landscape. It had been made on a mission film set and was identical to what NASA claimed was they real lunar landscape.

      "The purpose of this film," Scheer told the enthralled group, "is to indicate that you really can fake things on the ground, almost to the point of deception." He then invited his audience to "come to your own decision about whether or not man actually did walk on the Moon". A sudden attack of honesty? You bet, says Rene, who claims the only real thing about the Apollo missions were the lift offs. The astronauts simply have to be on board, he says, in case the rocket exploded. "It was the easiest way to ensure NASA wasn't left with three astronauts who ought to be dead," he claims, adding that they came down a day or so later, out of the public eye (global surveillance wasn't what it is now) and into the safe hands of NASA officials, who whisked them off to prepare for the big day a week later.

      And now NASA is planning another giant step--project Outreach, a one trillion dollar manned mission to Mars. "Think what they'll be able to mock up with today's computer graphics," says Rene chillingly. "Special effects was in its infancy in the 60's. This time round will have no way of determining the truth."

      Space oddities:

      Apollo 14 astronaut Allen Shepard played golf on the Moon. In front of a worldwide TV audience, Mission Control teased him about slicing the ball to the right. Yet a slice is caused by uneven air flow over the ball. The Moon has no atmosphere and no air.
      A camera panned upwards to catch Apollo 16's Lunar Lander lifting off the Moon. Who did the filming?
      One NASA picture from Apollo 11 is looking up at Neil Armstrong about to take his giant step for mankind. The photographer must have been lying on the planet surface. If Armstrong was the first man on the Moon, then who took the shot?
      The pressure inside a space suit was greater than inside a football. The astronauts should have been puffed out like the Michelin Man, but were seen freely bending their joints.
      The Moon landings took place during the Cold War. Why didn't America make a signal on the Moon that could be seen from Earth? The PR would have been phenomenal and it could have been easily done with magnesium flares.
      Text from pictures in the article show only two men walked on the Moon during the Apollo 12 mission. Yet the astronaut reflected in the visor has no camera. Who took the shot?
      The flags shadow goes behind the rock so doesn't match the dark line in the foreground, which looks like a line cord. So the shadow to the lower right of the spaceman must be the flag. Where is his shadow? And why is the flag fluttering?
      How can the flag be brightly lit when its not facing any light ?
      And where, in all of these shots, are the stars?
      The Lander weighed 17 tons yet the astronauts feet seem to have made a bigger dent in the dust.
      The powerful booster rocket at the base of the Lunar Lander was fired to slow descent to the moons service. Yet it has left no traces of blasting on the dust underneath. It should have created a small crater, yet the booster looks like it's never been fired...

    What animes similiar to Fate/stay night?
    Im tryin to find anyme that similiar to fate stay night
    i like action romance
    please dont suggest anything that have robot or a lot of technology
    i like sword or that kind of stuff
    i watched Buseo Renkin and Kaze no Stigma
    i really like these kind of anime please help

    • ANSWER:
      I recommend Kara no Kyoukai since it's from the same writer: Kinoko Nasu. It's a series of seven films, each about murders that are taking place through supernatural means. The protagonist is Ryougi Shiki, a girl that has been raised in a family of demon hunters and has the ability to see the death of everything through her Mystic Eyes of Death Perception. She also has an almost insatable urge to kill. It also has some amazing art and animation:

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nwk74t0QoUM

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6Gh51LsrKI

      I also recommend reading the Fate Stay Night visual novel. There are three routes. The anime only covers the Fate route which is only one-third of the story. There's also the film which covers the UBW route but cuts out about 90% of the depth it has, but the best and final route Heaven's Feel was never adapted. You can download it from somewhere if you google it. English patches are available for free from Mirror-moon if you want to buy it.

    I KNOW THE BOOK AND MOVIE ARENT EXACTLY THE SAME. BUT UNLESS SOME INTENSE MAJOR PART HAPPEND IN THE BOOK THAT THEY DIDNT SHOW IN THE MOVOE. LET ME KNOW AND ILL READ THE BOOKS. BUT IF NOT.. I HONESTLY JUST WANNA KNOW IF THE BOOK LEFT OFF WHERE THE MOVIE DID

    • ANSWER:
      Main differences you should know about (many more though if you want to see the rest go to the website in "Source" its near the bottom of the page on tht website) :) <3

      The ending of the movie is possibly the biggest difference from the novel. With his memory of Lena gone and free of any ties to Gatlin, Ethan is more than happy in the final moments of the film (which takes place six months after her 16th birthday). He prepares to leave for a college campus tour to New York and stops by the library just before he leaves to say goodbye to Amma. He runs into Lena there, which sparks his sudden lost memories of her, and the film ends with him screaming out her name just as he and Link pass the county line. In the book, the sequel is completely set up in an entirely different way - taking place directly after Lena's 16th birthday (instead of half a year) after she accidentally caused Macon's death and is more than guilt ridden and broken, therefore setting up the events for Beautiful Darkness.

      Ridley plays a major role in attempting to kill Ethan in the film than she did in the book. In the film, she seduces Link into accidentally shooting him with a real bullet instead of a blank during the town’s annual Civil War reenactment. However, Link instead kills Macon who was disguised as Ethan. In the book, Ethan actually misses most of the reenactment and neither of these events ever happened.(He was actually stabbed by Sarafine and then Lena does the spell to bring him back and Macon dies in his place)

      Lena casts a spell and wipes out Ethan’s memory of her so he won’t possibly die in order to break her family curse (only to have him regain his memories at the very end of the film). This never happens in the novel.

      Link discovers the Caster world at the end of the novel when he and Ethan become involved in the final showdown between Lena and her mother, Sarafine. In the movie version, both Link and Ethan are knocked unconscious before Lena's confrontation with her mother.

      In the movie, Lena discovers she must kill someone she loves in order to break her family curse, a detail that isn’t part of the book.

      In the novel, Ethan dies when he is murdered by Sarafine after she fatally stabs him. Lena and Amma then ressurrect him by making a deal with The Book of Moons by trading his life with someone else's. This, therefore, setting up the major plot line for his needed sacrifice (as well as his severed soul which plays a large role) in Beautiful Chaos. However, in the film his death and murder never happen.

  46. QUESTION:
    WOMEN ONLY - What are your favourite selection of great films?
    I am attempting to write a book about films for women - not chick flicks as such but a good variety of films that women enjoy, including some of my personal favourites. I would really appreciate your input of favourite films and why you like them. Many thanks

    • ANSWER:
      It's easy to list films, but how do you explain why you like a film? For me, that's practically impossible to explain in a few words, a few paragraphs or even a few pages why I like a particular film. That could be asking too much. I've been a film buff throughout my life, and I love many genres. I can give you an enormously long list of movies that I have watched multiple times; I mean that many of these I have viewed 100+ times.

    • ANSWER:
      NEW MOON is filming on March 16, 2009.
      The movie will be released into theaters on November 20, 2009 in the United States.

      The confirmation for NEW MOON was sent through email on November 22, 2008:

      "... We just heard from Summit that we’ll be moving forward on New Moon. We look forward to sharing this next chapter with you!

      Kristen & Rob"

  49. QUESTION:
    where can i watch new moon online for free...?
    no surveys, no downloads
    and where the movie isnt filmed so that half the screen is cut off?!

    • ANSWER:
      www.davidmovie.com

      its free and no surveys!!

      you will get a pop up to try and get you to download a dumb toolbar but just hit cancel on it and it will take u right to movie!!

      Its the bad version right now with the heads cut off but usually takes a couple days to get good copies of any movie anyway on there...im hoping maybe by latest tomorrow night or monday they will have a better one on there...keep checking though!!

      enjoy i loved it!!

  50. QUESTION:
    Where can I watch the movie Moon online for free?
    The movie came out June 12th in selected theaters. I've been looking everywhere and I can't seem to just WATCH the film. There are sites that would ask me to fill out surveys, then they end up trying to sell you stuff.
    So in short, please send me a link that goes directly to the movie without me filling out surveys, that would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.
    please, also, can you give me a DIRECT link to the movie. I'll find a way to give more points if someone does!

      luv it!!!

      2. Download the subtitles of the film from http://www.opensubtitles.org/

  10. QUESTION:
    How do people find out about movie auditions?
    I've always wondered how people previously unknown to the "business" get into movies. I mean I know some people have connections to people who know people who know..(You get what I'm saying.) How on earth would someone go about catching wind of auditions for TV shows or movies?

    • ANSWER:
      Here are THE ONLY LEGIT online sites that you can get work from. ALL SITES NOT LISTED ARE SCAMS!:

      In LA:
      -Actorsaccess.com
      -LACasting.com
      -NowCasting.com
      -Backstage.com (they have a weekly newspaper that you can get at stores that lists castings)

      In NY:
      -Actorsaccess.com
      -NYCASTING.COM
      -NYCASTINGS.COM
      -Backstage.com (they have a weekly newspaper that you can get at stores that lists castings)

      Other markets:
      -ActorsAccess.com
      -Backstage

      Free but proceed with Caution:
      -ModelMayhem.com
      -Craigslist
      -Mandy.com
      -Castingcallsearch.com

      Know that you're ONLY going to see at most 30% of the work out there. ONLY agents have access to the serious jobs or the other 70%.

      To get an agent, you need to get GREAT headshots, a good resume, and training from the best. These are enough to get you a commercial agent at least. Getting a GOOD theatrical agent (Film/tv) takes longer. Most good theatrical agents won't see you unless you're SAG, have a polished resume, and a demo reel. Commercial agents are more lenient about that. What the best Commercial agents want to see on your resume are good commercial classes, improv, and cold reading.

      You can get an agent multiple ways. Here are a few common ways:
      -Mail in an unsealed manilla envelope with a CONCISE coverletter and headshot with the resume stapled on the back. If you have a demoreel include that too.
      -Attend a showcase and impress them.
      -Get a referral from a friend who is with the agency that you're interested in

      DON'T
      -Email them unless they tell you to. IT'S UNPROFESSIONAL!
      -Call unless they tell you to. ALSO UNPROFESSIONAL!
      -Walk in and ask for a meeting. UNPROFESSIONAL THREE!
      -Sign with them if they ask for upfront money, make you take new photos with THEIR photographer, or take THEIR classes. Agent's ONLY make money when you do. Agents usually make 10% on film/tv and commercials and 20% on commercial print.

    • ANSWER:
      Get into classes and start building your resume with theatre credits, then student and indie film roles.

      Check out backstage.com and actorsaccess.com both of which are industry standards, but not completely free. See if they have good audition info for your area then subscribe for backstage, or pay for the electronic submissions for actorsaccess. You can also subscribe to Showfax giving you unlimited electronic submissions for a year on actorsaccess, totally worth it.

      Whils in class and working on shows and projects you need to network. Ask people who they're with (agent wise) and get referrals. Use that to get your foot in the door at legit agencies. Find SAG franchosed agents here: http://www.sag.org/sagWebApp/application?origin=page1.jsp&event=bea.portal.framework.internal.refresh&pageid=AgentInformation RossReports.com also has a list (and you can get a combo subscription with backstage.com) but it's not cheap in my opinion, however if you're serious about getting an agent and you're at a place when you are actually ready to do your mailings, it's worth it. They have more information on which agents are accepting submissions and for which types. They also have non-franchised agencies listed giving you more choices, however non-franchised agents may take negotiate comission.

      If you're in Los Angeles, look here for classes http://www.workingactors.com/cgi-bin/page.cgi?g=Training%2FACTING%2F&d=1 or for an idea of what to look for.

      Otherwise you can do a search for your state name and the word film and check out the sites that come up. Each state's film commissions and alliances often have info on local auditions and classes etc.

      good luck,
      Marianne

    • ANSWER:
      Look no further!
      A little background information, iPod Touches use a specific type of file for movies and videos. The mp4 or "mpeg-4" file is the select type. The following websites I am going to provide allow you to download free mp4 movies. All you have to do is click the given link, enter the 4 letter code (if it's at megaupload.com), and download. Once you have the file saved, just drag it onto your itunes and sync.

      Just to let you know, each move is about 300mb on average. And 1000mb = 1gb. So make sure you have enough space to save them and also to put them on your iPod Touch.

      http://tysiphonehelp.com/?page_id=147

      (at this website there is a video that shows you how to download them directly to your ipod, ignore that because that is only for jailbroken ipods, a whole nother topic)

    How can i submit my pics to movie casting withought going thru the crazy online stuff?

    • ANSWER:
      I'm an LA Actor giving you the REAL DEAL!

      Casting is now done ONLINE. Envelopes are a thing of the past and will most likely get shredded.

      Here are THE ONLY LEGIT online sites that you can get work from. ALL SITES NOT LISTED ARE SCAMS!:

      In LA:
      -Actorsaccess.com
      -LACasting.com
      -NowCasting.com
      -Backstage.com (they have a weekly newspaper that you can get at stores that lists castings)

      In NY:
      -Actorsaccess.com
      -NYCASTING.COM
      -NYCASTINGS.COM
      -Backstage.com (they have a weekly newspaper that you can get at stores that lists castings)

      Other markets:
      -ActorsAccess.com
      -Backstage

      Free but proceed with Caution:
      -ModelMayhem.com
      -Craigslist
      -Mandy.com
      -Castingcallsearch.com

      Know that you're ONLY going to see at most 30% of the work out there. ONLY agents have access to the serious jobs or the other 70%.

      To get an agent, you need to get GREAT headshots, a good resume, and training from the best. These are enough to get you a commercial agent at least. Getting a GOOD theatrical agent (Film/tv) takes longer. Most good theatrical agents won't see you unless you're SAG, have a polished resume, and a demo reel. Commercial agents are more lenient about that. What the best Commercial agents want to see on your resume are good commercial classes, improv, and cold reading.

      You can get an agent multiple ways. Here are a few common ways:
      -Mail in an unsealed manilla envelope with a CONCISE coverletter and headshot with the resume stapled on the back. If you have a demoreel include that too.
      -Attend a showcase and impress them.
      -Get a referral from a friend who is with the agency that you're interested in

      DON'T
      -Email them unless they tell you to. IT'S UNPROFESSIONAL!
      -Call unless they tell you to. ALSO UNPROFESSIONAL!
      -Walk in and ask for a meeting. UNPROFESSIONAL THREE!
      -Sign with them if they ask for upfront money, make you take new photos with THEIR photographer, or take THEIR classes. Agent's ONLY make money when you do. Agents usually make 10% on film/tv and commercials and 20% on commercial print.

  16. QUESTION:
    what are the best free video editors and effects software?
    i want a free video editor for film, but i want it to be halfway decent.

    i also want to be able to use masking and things but pay a very low price. whats the cheapest editor like that, free would be best?

    • ANSWER:
      There's several editors you can use....

      Take a look at the tutorials for Windows Movie Maker at
      http://www.windowsmoviemakers.net/Tutorials/ - it may be WMM is all you need. It really is foolproof except that it's picky in what file formats it takes and the lack of native support for multiple video and audio tracks are a definite disadvantage (but there are workarounds).

      The version 2 series were probably the most versatile, you can find them here - http://www.brothersoft.com/downloads/windows-movie-maker.html - but you'll have problems installing the older versions on Windows 7. Windows Live Movie Maker is still good, but not so versatile.

      Other free video editors are...

      Wax - http://www.debugmode.com/wax/ - this is also a compositor - a bit like Adobe's After Effects - - unlimited video and audio tracks
      VideoLAN Movie Creator - http://videolan.org/vlmc/ - up to 64 audio and video tracks
      TrakAxPC - www.trakax.com/software/pc/
      VideoSpin - http://videospin.com/ - just 1 video track so you may as well use WMM
      VideoPad - the free version - http://www.nchsoftware.com/videopad/
      Lightworks - http://www.lightworksbeta.com/ - I like this one - unlimited tracks ?
      Serif MoviePlus - http://serif.com/free-video-editing-software/ - unlimited tracks ?
      Ezvid - ezvid.com/ - 32 video and audio tracks

      Another is Zwei-Stein. This is a good editor but I found the interface to be absolutely horrible.

      VirtualDub, RAD Video tools, AVITricks and Avidemux are also good tools you should look at. Although not full editors like the others they have some useful features.

      Lightworks and Wax together are a very good video editing system for free.

      All are safe, at least from the sites I've linked to.

      If you want to spend some money then there are reviews of 14 video editors under 0 at http://video-editing-software-review.toptenreviews.com/

      More costly are video editors like Sony Vegas and Adobe Premiere. Both of which are very good. Premiere is probably more advanced but harder to learn everything it can do.

  17. QUESTION:
    How Do I find out about Free Events in NYC Before they happen?
    I'm always finding out about cool stuff in NYC that are either free or low cost after they happen. I get Time Out Magazine and that helps a little, but is there something better? I especially am interested in things that are going on in Times Square or movie filming's or anyplace to spot a celebrity.

    • ANSWER:
      Here are some of the best website suggestions for general NYC events. I'm not sure about the movie filmings. Also, celebrities, unless performing, normally don't want to advertise where they are. However, you can read the NY Post each day to find out which celebrities were recently spotted in NYC.

Basically i just want to know how people get into those movies and how do they even find out about it.

    Thanks, anything would help to clear it up..

  23. QUESTION:
    what are the best websites to download free films?
    i want some new films to watch, i'd prefer to download them instead of watching them online. & i don't really want to become a member of anything?

    any sites youve heard about/used would be appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      OK! I know the answer. U can also download blu-ray movies. Ok. first of all, download a torrent software thingy. For example VUZE or Utorrent. There both good. Then, after u install it, go to either:
      www.thepiratebay.org
      www.isohunt.com
      www.mininova.com

      and seach in the box for what movies u want (u can even download software or games etc. u can download ANYTHING and u can get ANY movie). Then download the torrent file which then opens up on ur torrent software. Then it starts downloading and ur download will automatically go to the Downloads folder:)

      P.S! Dont forget to check the comments on the torrent to see if theres any viruses! If it dont say it just download it:D

  24. QUESTION:
    Can I switch a film from widescreen to full screen with the right software on my computer?
    I know it sounds odd to ask however I like to watch some of my movies in full screen but they are being shown in widescreen. Does anyone know what kind of software I can use to fix this problem of mine?

    • ANSWER:
      there is an alternative media player, totally free, called vlc media player. http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ down load it there. it will play your movies. When you are playing it, you double click the movie to make it go full screen ( meaning your looking at just the movie) To get rid of the letter boxing, right click on the movie, select crop, them 4:3 ratio. this will make the movie fill the screen, but you'll lose some of the stuff going on on the sides. If you buy a dvd in "full screen" your getting the same effect though. To make it go back, right click, crop, default.

      VLC blows Windows Media player away, btw. It has ten times as many features.

  27. QUESTION:
    What type of computers do professional movie makers use?
    What kind? And how much? Do they use mac? Do they use PC? And what is the most common pogram used among movie maker (professional) not home video, but something like tv shows or real bigtime movies. Anyone know? thx

    • ANSWER:
      An Independent Film Maker I Know uses a Toshiba AMD64bit 3gb laptop 2ghz. and a PIV Dell. Pixar uses Macs (and some PCs like Dell). Dreamworks uses HP's.

      I would recommend getting a PC such as a Dell XPS system http://www.dell.com/content/products/category.aspx/xpsdt?c=us&cs=19&l=en&ref=dthp&s=dhs http://www.dell.com/content/topics/segtopic.aspx/xpsdt_gaming?c=us&cs=19&l=en&ref=dthp&s=dhs (of your choice) or Laptop: Toshiba Qosimo http://explore.toshiba.com/laptops/qosmio?cm_sp=TopNav-_-Laptops-_-Qosmio (of your choice)..
      I would not recommend a Mac due to the much higher prices. Anyone who says that "Macs are better than PCs" does not know what they are talking about Macs just use a subset of PC hardware. To make that claim is totally lacking in understanding hardware...

  28. QUESTION:
    What editing software to use for taking a bunch of clips out of longer videos and put them together?
    I use a Gopro when driving motocross, and want to put the "highlights" together. The films are about 20-40 minutes long and i want to take out bits of maybe 10-15 secs and put them together ?
    What will be the easiest way of doing this ? A tutorial of some sort would be great !

    The Camera is a Gopro Hero HD 2 and i shoot in 720p and 60 fps. If this matters.
    Thanks !

    • ANSWER:
      Nearly every video editor ever made can do this - that's what they do.

      How the various editors visualize what you're doing is different though.

      In editors like Windows Movie Maker you import the longer video into your project. You can preview it and split the video into chunks which appears as separate pieces of file. You then drag those down to the timeline and put them together.

      In others, like Adobe Premiere, you import the longer video into the project then in the preview pane add in and out markers. When you drag the video from the preview pane into the timeline only that part between the markers is used. You can add the longer original video to the preview and add more markers as many times as you like.

      Once you've got your viedeo clips put together and added your transitions, effects and titles you then render the finished video. All this means is that the editor takes all the clips and creates a ingle new video file. This is very intensive work for a computer and if you're using an older or middling one, this could take a while.

      You can upload that file to Youtube or whatever or even burn it onto a DVD that you can watch using a TV. This usually means another piece of sofware that is capable of DVD authoring. Again these range from free like Windows DVD Maker and DVDFlick to the 0 Adobe Encore.

      If you go to http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbWLzF5mVVFYQGxqZ_GCThA/videos you'll see a whole bunch of videos (11 of them) of a guy in a solo concert. All of those came from a single video file that was originally over an hour in length.

      The Opal Book Club, The Bronconator, and My Beautiful SUV (one of my hobbies is off-road driving) are made from multiple video files that were edited together.

      If you want to explore video editing then there's no reason to spend anything as there are some very good free editors around. Most compete very well with the sub-0 commercial software.

      Take a look at the tutorials for Windows Movie Maker at http://www.windowsmoviemakers.net/Tutorials/ - it may be WMM is all you need. It really is foolproof except that it's picky in what file formats it takes and the lack of native support for multiple video and audio tracks are a definite disadvantage (but there are workarounds)

      The version 2 series were probably the most versatile, you can find them here - http://www.brothersoft.com/downloads/windows-movie-maker.html - but you'll have problems installing the older versions on Windows 7.

      Other free video editors are...

      Wax - http://www.debugmode.com/wax/ - this is also a compositor - a bit like Adobe's After Effects - - unlimited video and audio tracks
      VideoLAN Movie Creator - http://videolan.org/vlmc/ - up to 64 audio and video tracks
      TrakAxPC - www.trakax.com/software/pc/
      VideoSpin - http://videospin.com/ - just 1 video track so you may as well use WMM
      VideoPad - the free version - http://www.nchsoftware.com/videopad/
      Lightworks - http://www.lightworksbeta.com/ - I like this one - unlimited tracks ?
      Serif MoviePlus - http://serif.com/free-video-editing-software/ - unlimited tracks ?
      Ezvid - ezvid.com/ - 32 video and audio tracks

      VirtualDub, RAD Video tools, AVITricks and Avidemux are also good tools you should look at. Although not full editors like the others they have some useful features.

      Lightworks and Wax together are a very good video editing system for free.

      All are safe, at least from the sites I've linked to.

      If you want to spend a little more then there's reviews of 14 editors under 0 at http://video-editing-software-review.toptenreviews.com/

      Once you've explored the basics and think you've reached the end of what you can do with the free or low cost editors then there's software like Sony Vegas (0) and Adobe Premiere and After Effects (,700)

      http://www.sag.org/content/find-agent

      To get an agent, you need to get GREAT headshots, a good resume, and training from the best. These are enough to get you a commercial agent at least. Getting a GOOD theatrical agent (Film/tv) takes longer. Most good theatrical agents won’t see you unless you’re SAG, have a polished resume, and a demo reel. Commercial agents are more lenient about that. What the best Commercial agents want to see on your resume are good commercial classes, improv, and cold reading.

      You can get an agent multiple ways. Here are a few common ways:
      -Mail in an unsealed manilla envelope with a CONCISE coverletter and headshot with the resume stapled on the back. If you have a demoreel include that too.
      -Attend a showcase and impress them. By showcase I do not mean scammy conventions like IMTA, IPOP, Proscout, or Best New Talent. I mean legit ones like at Actor Connection, Reel pros, Network Studios, etc.
      -Get a referral from a friend who is with the agency that you’re interested in

  32. QUESTION:
    How much you get paid to create movie trailers?
    How much do you get paid to create movie trailers?

    • ANSWER:
      Trailers are made by companies, not individuals. You would be working as an editor for the company. Sometimes you would be editing movie trailers. Other times, you would be editing TV commercials, industrial films, training films, etc.

      "The people who create trailers often begin their work while the movie is still being shot. Since the edited movie does not exist at this point, the trailer editors work from rushes or dailies. The trailer may be created at agencies (such as The Cimarron Group, MOJO, The Ant Farm, Aspect Ratio, Trailer Park) while the movie itself is being cut together at the studio. Thus, the trailer may contain footage that is not in the final movie, or the trailer editor and the movie editor may use different takes of a particular shot. Another common technique is including music on the trailer which does not appear on the movie's soundtrack. This is nearly always a requirement, as trailers and teasers are created long before the composer has even been hired for the film score — sometimes as much as a year ahead of the movie's release date — while composers are usually the last creative people to work on the film. For instance, Forrest Gump used music from Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story for its trailer while the 2008 superhero film Iron Man featured the song of the same name by Black Sabbath in its promotion."

    What is the horror movie that features an evil television show?
    What is the horror movie that features an evil television show?

    • ANSWER:
      stay tuned (1992)
      with john ritter and pam dawber
      A husband and wife are sucked into a hellish TV and have to survive a gauntlet of twisted versions of TV shows they find themselves in

      http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0105466/

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stay_Tuned_(film)

      John Ritter (of Three's Company fame) plays Roy Knable, a couch potato and struggling Seattle plumbing salesman, and Pam Dawber (of Mork & Mindy fame) plays his neglected wife Helen, a senior Vitamin product manager. After a fight (which involved Helen throwing one of Roy's fencing trophies into the family television, smashing the screen and matrix as a wake-up call to reality), Mr. Spike (Jeffrey Jones) appears at the couples' door, offering him a high tech new satellite dish system filled with 666 channels of every program you can't get on the four big networks (CBS, NBC, ABC, and Fox).

      The dish soon sucks Roy and Helen into a hellish television world, full of satirical shows and movies. In some shows, the Knables are transformed into various roles and forms that fit the plot of the movie they happen to be in at the time. If they can survive for 24 hours, they're free to go, but if they get killed, their souls will go to Satan. They are pursued by Mr. Spike (also known as "Mephistopheles of the Cathode Ray") who enters some shows along with the Knables in order to halt their advance; he too takes on alternate forms that reflect the themes of the various shows. Roy and Spike continue to fight throughout several shows, even in a cloak-and-dagger scenario where Roy displays a long-buried talent as college fencer.

      Salt-n-Pepa make a cameo appearance near the end of the film in a "Hell TV" (MTV) segment. Mr. Spike, the DJ in that segment of the film, throws bladed-records at Roy Knable (dressed in a satirical Prince outfit). However, Roy dodges them all and confronts Spike, winning back the remote, and uses it to save his wife from being run over by a train. At the end of the movie, Spike is succeeded in his soul-gaining job by a new upstart employee and gets torn apart in one of his hellish TV scenarios for punishment. Roy, who had learned a very valuable lesson after his adventure, has dramatically cut back on his TV viewing time and has taken up teaching in a fencing class.

      To get an agent, you need to get GREAT headshots, a good resume, and training from the best. These are enough to get you a commercial agent at least. Getting a GOOD theatrical agent (Film/tv) takes longer. Most good theatrical agents won’t see you unless you’re SAG, have a polished resume, and a demo reel. Commercial agents are more lenient about that. What the best Commercial agents want to see on your resume are good commercial classes, improv, and cold reading.

      You can get an agent multiple ways. Here are a few common ways:
      -Mail in an unsealed manilla envelope with a CONCISE coverletter and headshot with the resume stapled on the back. If you have a demoreel include that too.
      -Attend a showcase and impress them. By showcase I do not mean scammy conventions like IMTA, IPOP, Proscout, or Best New Talent. I mean legit ones like at Actor Connection, Reel pros, Network Studios, etc.
      -Get a referral from a friend who is with the agency that you’re interested in

      DON’T
      -Email them unless they tell you to. IT’S UNPROFESSIONAL!
      -Call unless they tell you to. ALSO UNPROFESSIONAL!
      -Walk in and ask for a meeting. UNPROFESSIONAL THREE!
      -Sign with them if they ask for upfront money, make you take new photos with THEIR photographer, or take THEIR classes. Agent’s ONLY make money when you do. Agents usually make 10% on film/tv and commercials and 20% on commercial print

    What is the best low-priced video editing software out there?
    Something to edit my game film. I'd prefer it to look kinda professional like some of the compilations on youtube.

    • ANSWER:
      I use Windows Movie Maker 2.6 because it's as good as you can get (for free). Pinnacle VideoSpin and VideoThang are two alternatives, but they don't offer as much, believe it or not.

      Don't skimp with some random company's movie programs... I don't know from firsthand experience but I don't trust them. If you're looking to buy them try something like Sony Vegas. It's made by a reliable company and has gotten good peer reviews from my old high school. And its price isn't outlandish.

  40. QUESTION:
    What is required to show a copyrighted movie in public?
    we're a nonprofit org. raising money to build a new city playground. thought movie night would be good. can we charge admin fee. or does it have to be free admin to diplay with out special permission?

    • ANSWER:
      it is illegal for you to charge admission to the film without paying the film rights owner/making arrangements with them. (however, if it's a very old film, and is in the public domain, that's different. but mostly that means you're not likely to be showing it as a fundraiser.)

      however, there is nothing wrong with asking for donations FOR YOUR ORG (making clear that you are not charging for the film) at that event, which would be a way to fundraise.

  41. QUESTION:
    Where can i find book notes on the book The Motorcycle Diaries?
    I need notes for the book but can't find a website with book notes on this book for free. Can someone please find me the notes for this book?

    • ANSWER:
      Wikipedia of course!

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Motorcycle_Diaries

      Here's the table of contents so you can see what's covered:

      1 Pre-expedition
      2 Expedition
      3 Transformation
      4 Editions
      5 Reviews
      6 Further reading
      6.1 Film
      7 References
      8 External links

      It's actually a really good book, you should just read it. If you're having a hard time visualizing it all or getting into it just go and sit on a motorcycle, and imagine it wasn't cutting edge but had technology that dated back over half a century. Now imagine trying to ride around a foreign continent about to break into revolution on it.

      If that still doesn't interest you go rent the movie and watch it... and then go buy a damn bike.

  42. QUESTION:
    What films/tv shows can you copy and burn onto DVD and sell?
    A friend of mine apparently found a few films and TV shows from the 'black and white' era where the copyright was done in such a way where it made it legal to burn copies of them onto dvds and sell them on.
    A) Is this possible?
    B) If so Why?
    C) What examples of this are there?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes it possible and many make money off it such as movies like McLintock! (1963) being one of the best examples http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0057298/
      When a Copyright expires and no one renews it the film is called "Public Domain"
      This site is the best one for good videos

      http://www.archive.org/search.php?query=%2Fmetadata%2Flicenseurl%3A%28http*publicdomain*%29%20AND%20mediatype%3Amovies

      another example

      http://www.publicdomainflicks.com/

      Just do a search of 'Public Domain movies' and you will see a lot of films that are free and legal to download and some sell them yet there are some legal hurdles you have when you release them.

  43. QUESTION:
    I want to be a movie extra in chicago, how is this possible?
    I have been looking up information on wanting to be an extra and I just can't seem to find the right information. I live in Chicago and I am looking for work out here. Acting is a passion of mine and I just want to take the first step in being an extra in a movie. Could someone please help me?

    • ANSWER:

      http://www.illinoisbiz.biz/dceo/Bureaus/Film/Events/

      http://egov.cityofchicago.org/city/webportal/portalEntityHomeAction.do?entityName=Film+Office&entityNameEnumValue=15

      You can also set up an account on actorsaccess.com It's free to see what's available and .00 to submit if you're right for anything. You need to upload a headshot and a resume so please have your parents help you so you do not put too much personal info. The phone number should be their cell phone number and they should know what to do if a casting director calls them for an audition with you.

      There's also extrasaccess.com if all you want is background work but honestly most of what comes up on actorsaccess is small time anyway. Decent resume builders.

      You should also try backstage.com Do a casting search and see if they have anything for you. If you want all the info you have to pay to subscribe so I'd just do the free search and see if it's worth it. You may be able to see enough to search the net for the rest especially with theatre auditions. Just find the theatre's own site. Theatre is a great way to build your resume.

      In regards to the atmosphere of Chicago link, I'm sorry but something about it doesn't look right to me. They may be legit, but they do not have a real address, their email is a free account from gmail... nothing looks real solid. I'd be very careful there. Maybe ask the film commission in your state if they've ever dealt with them?

      Good luck,
      Marianne

  44. QUESTION:
    How can you get started as a script wrighter?
    For as long as I can remember, I had always enjoyed coming up with story ideas, comedy, horror, romance, adventure, all kinds. So I figure the best thing to do is make a career out of it and become a writer for shows or movies, but I have no idea how to get started. Where do I begin and how can I get noticed?

    • ANSWER:
      If you want to be a screenwriter, you've got to know how to write a screenplay - formatting and structure. It doesn't hurt to know that it's also "screenwriter" and not "script wrighter." Whatever a "wrighter" is.

      Screenplays are written in a very specific format. The entire document is divided into scenes, and the scenes are structured to be a slug line (the heading of the scene telling you whether the scene is inside or outside, a location identifier, and what time of day it is that the scene is taking place), description (or action) and dialogue.

      My first recommendation is to read screenplays. You can do this here:

      www.script-o-rama.com
      www.simplyscripts.com
      www.imsdb.com

      You'll also need a good book on formatting. For that, I recommend the Screenwriters Bible by David Trottier. He explains all the terms and gives examples. It's a great book. You can pick it up cheapest on Amazon.com

      You'll also need formatting software. There's the professional software packages: Movie Magic Screenwriter and Final Draft. MMS is the industry standard, and - of the two - I find that it's the easiest to use. There's also the free software. It's not a standard, but it's certainly the cheapest way to get going. The software package Celtx is probably the best out there. You can get it here:

      www.celtx.com

      The next thing you'll need to know is how to structure a screenplay. While the story is always up to the writer, it's important to know that virtually every story is the Monomyth. If you include the plot points outlined in Hero With A thousand Faces by Joseph Campbell, you'll be well on your way towards having a marketable screenplay. Joseph Campbell's book is a great reference, but really dry reading. For now, read (and understand) Vogler's breakdown, which was a memo written awhile ago. It's very concise and hits the high points you need to know to create a good story. You can read it here:

      http://www.skepticfiles.org/atheist2/hero.htm

      A screenplay is between 90 and 120 pages for a movie. A TV show is 22 pages for 1/2 hour show or 46 pages for a 1 hr show. Every page of a screenplay equals 1 minute of screen time.

      Once you've finished your screenplay, you'll need to protect it and find someone to sell it for you - an agent or a manager.

      You register your work through the Writers Guild of America West:

      www.wgawregistry.org

      And you get an agent or a manager by picking up a copy of the Hollywood Representation Directory and compiling a list of every agent or manager that represents writers in the genre you write in. Then you send them all query letters (you don't send your screenplays). Interview the ones that respond, and pick the one that you believe will work the best for you and be the best fit. Remember that the agent or manager you pick works for YOU, not the other way around. This person will then shop your work for you.

      NOTES:

      - You do NOT need to know the nuts and bolts of filmmaking to be a screenwriter, you need to know how to tell a good story.

      - You do NOT provide locations, you provide descriptions of locations.

      - You NEVER EVER *EVER* provide camera positions or camera direction. You're the writer, not the director. NEVER EVER tell the director how to direct. You just write the story.

      - The producer isn't concerned with anything other than costs and profit potential.

      - The director is only concerned with story.

      - Writers don't need film school. They need ideas, creativity, a thick skin and patience.

  45. QUESTION:
    What is the first step to becoming an actress?
    There are a lot of things that seem to be the "first step" to becoming an actress. But lots of people say that the first step is to get an agent. My parents aren't totally fond of me trying to get into the movie industry so their not going to pay for an agent, I was wondering if it was allowed in acting for the actress to be her own agent. I'm 13 btw. I've had some experience in this pizza commerical, but other than that i'm pretty much a begginer. What do producers look for in a actress?

    • ANSWER:
      Since you're 13, MAKE SURE YOUR PARENTS ARE INVOLVED AND SHOW THEM THIS ANSWER

      Look up LEGIT agencies here:

      http://www.agentassociation.com/

      http://www.sag.org/content/find-agent

      To get an agent, you need to get GREAT headshots, a good resume, and training from the best. These are enough to get you a commercial agent at least. Getting a GOOD theatrical agent (Film/tv) takes longer. Most good theatrical agents won’t see you unless you’re SAG, have a polished resume, and a demo reel. Commercial agents are more lenient about that. What the best Commercial agents want to see on your resume are good commercial classes, improv, and cold reading.

      You can get an agent multiple ways. Here are a few common ways:
      -Mail in an unsealed manilla envelope with a CONCISE coverletter and headshot with the resume stapled on the back. If you have a demoreel include that too.
      -Attend a showcase and impress them. By showcase I do not mean scammy conventions like IMTA, IPOP, Proscout, or Best New Talent. I mean legit ones like at Actor Connection, Reel pros, Network Studios, etc.
      -Get a referral from a friend who is with the agency that you’re interested in

      DON’T
      -Email them unless they tell you to. IT’S UNPROFESSIONAL!
      -Call unless they tell you to. ALSO UNPROFESSIONAL!
      -Walk in and ask for a meeting. UNPROFESSIONAL THREE!
      -Sign with them if they ask for upfront money, make you take new photos with THEIR photographer, or take THEIR classes. Agent’s ONLY make money when you do. Agents usually make 10% on film/tv and commercials and 20% on commercial print

    How can i make a video without a mac computer?
    I dont have a mac, i have a pc and i want to make a you tube video. not the ones with film and such, the ones with just writing and a song in the background. How can i make one?

    • ANSWER:
      If you want to buy software: Here are the top video editing software for Windows: http://video-editing-software-review.toptenreviews.com/

      There is also always Windows Movie Maker (free)

      More Free Options are:
      OSALT will give you some alternatives... (here are alternatives to IMovie) Please Note: These are all free (in green)
      http://www.osalt.com/imovie (Please note: if the Operating system is crossed off, it means that it is not available for that Operating System)
      If you want to get excellent free software for movie editing, download linux and install as a dual boot. it is a great option if you are interested. Such as Ubuntu Studio Or regular Ubuntu and then install Cinelerra, Kino, Lives, Pitivi

      Installing Linux in general is very simple and much more secure than OS X(Macintosh) and free.
      Also, most Linux distributions have a LiveCD which means you can try without installing...
      UBUNTU, KUBUNTU, FREESPIRE, PCLINUXOS, etc.. all have live CDS.
      All you have to do is..
      A) to download .iso file off the internet from the Linux website
      B) burn the .iso file to a CD or DVD (Make sure your burning software can burn an ISO or get InfraRecorder http://infrarecorder.org/ )
      C) restart the computer with the CD in the drive
      D) As computer is restarting, press on F12 Key a bunch of times to get a boot menu
      E) Select the option to boot from CD or DVD.

    How can I get cheap Iphone movies?
    I have been looking for movies on my iphone for a very long time but cant find anything that really works. is way to much to pay cuz i watch a lot of movies, so what are some websites I can get iphone moviies for cheap?

    • ANSWER:
      stream directly from ipocketTv
      think you have to jailbreack it and download it from cydia..
      if you love free movies that much ...
      or just go to piratebay.org and download movies already in iphone format :)

      if you got some spare time,and you can persuade 20 of your mates to help you out. there is a way to get one for very little... there is a loophole on http://gadgets.freebiejeebies.co.uk/131769 .. you have to sign up with them complete an offer and get 20 of your mates to do the same..
      the cheapest offer there is is with love film for £3.99 a month 2 week free trial and you can cancel after the 1st month. (it still counts as a completed offer)and you still benefit from free dvd rentals :)
      even if you were to pay your 20 mates to sign up for a month you would spend less than £80..and you would get your self an iphone 3gs 32g :)

  48. QUESTION:
    How can I audition for an extra in movies?
    I don't have any acting experience, and I can't join the community theater. But I am a tall, blonde, fit female (though I doubt look matters that much in acting). I have been dreaming about becomeing an actress for a while. Often I improv with my friends and can pretty much act well. I was hoping to build my acting resume by being an extra in a few movies. How can I do this???

    • ANSWER:
      You can do extra work by joining Central Casting. They handle 90% of the extra out there for major films/tv shows. http://centralcasting.org

      Also, you CANNOT put extra work on your ACTING resume. It's NOT acting!

      What if you actually met with the casting director for Hannah Montana, Howard Meltzer, and he sees that you have Hannah Montana on your resume? The conversation would go like this:

      Howard Meltzer, Casting director: Have we met?

      You: No, I don't think so.

      Casting director: How is that possible? It says that you worked on Hannah Montana.

      You: Ummm... I was actually just an extra...

      Casting director: GOOD BYE!

      This DOES happen with a lot of actors trying to make their resume look good.

      Here are the pros and cons of being an extra:
      Pros:
      -One way of becoming SAG Eligible
      -Networking
      -Good way to learn set etiquette and how everything works.
      -Better than waiting tables
      -If you're SAG, it can help you earn enough to qualify for the health insurance benefits.
      -free good food

      Cons:
      -CAN'T put it on an ACTING resume
      -Extra work leads to more extra work, so DON'T expect to be "discovered!"
      -High Opportunity Costs- The time that you're stuck on set could have been used towards training, working out, or doing whatever to seriously advance your acting career. Also, what if you get a call for a SAG National Commercial that could pay k and residuals? You can't take it because you're "stuck on set making a little over minimum wage."
      -Low pay
      -Sometimes shady people. There's a big joke that Central Casting hands out their cards at the exit gates of prisons. Hey, it's a good job for ex-cons. NO background checks and it pays better than McDonald's!
      -Sometimes negative people ie. bitter actors who are doing everything wrong and are complaining about not being successful. These are the WRONG people to hang out with.
      -Get treated like a second class citizen.

  16. QUESTION:
    How do I watch a film properly?
    Hey,
    So usually when I watch films I watch them for pure entertainment, I have never really watched a film to think about the sub means ect. In the past I have watched critically acclaimed films such as There Will Be Blood and found them so boring! My question if how do I approach these films? How do I get more meaning out of films? How to analyze films? And finally how do I tell good acting from bad acting?

    Thanks for your help!

    • ANSWER:
      well, first taste varies so just because a film is critically appreciated shundt necessarily mean everybody shud appreciate it all da same so there is nothing wrong in find a movie boring.. but still if u wanna go deeper here are some tips..for number 1, make up ur mind that if the movie doesnt meet up ur regular taste or expectation or a bit slow or serious u just cant rule dat out as a boring one cause there might be some good aspects of this film as well which can be appreciated,so have patience try to find those,forgetting the pre set stuff,may be first time u wud find one or two or even none, try with some other movie then..u see patience is da key..and preset idea free mind as well..

      for first few occasions it will be harder but gradually it shud sink in so worths a shot isnt it? and when u get past the first tiring phase the analyzying power will improve gradually as well, goes hand in hand.

      and good acting from bad acting? well, u'll know with time..these things are related so when u are improving one the others will be improved as well.

  18. QUESTION:
    How do Netflix distribute money to film companies?
    I'm using the free trial period of movie streaming on Netflix, and I'm considering starting to pay for it next month.

    How do Netflix pay the companies? Is it based on what films / series I watch, so that they pay the makers of for example Doctor Who more than the makers of Sex and the City? Or is it based on some completely different system?

    • ANSWER:
      They pay a negotiated flat rate to the rights holder for the rights to stream a selection of their movies/shows for a set period of time. At the end of that period, the contract for the rights is either renegotiated, or ends up not being renewed (at which point the movies specified in the previous contract would be dropped from Netflix's library).

      The amount paid depends on the individual contracts negotiated with the rights holders. How much Netflix is willing to pay depends on how badly they want a particular set of content.

      That's why you soon won't see any Disney stuff on Netflix. The last round of negotiations fell through, so once the current contract expires, all the Disney stuff will be removed.

  19. QUESTION:
    Any Good Websites That You Can Watch Free Films Online?

  22. QUESTION:
    Where can I get free film downloads online?
    If not downloads, then just watch online.

    I would prefer not to have to sign-up.

    • ANSWER:
      I'd recommend a torrent- there's no sign up; all you need is to have preinstalled a torrent browser (available for free like at utorrent.com)

      Just google something like "[name of movie] torrent" and click :)

      Alternatively, you can go to "www.mininova.org" ; most DVDrip quality is released 2-3 months after the movie is released, and vidcam quality within a few days.

      Hope this helps :)

      Are always the best sites. They are free with no surveys or downloads with excellent quality movies. If you do want to most of their movies or TV episodes can be downloaded using Real player, Divx or the download link on players like Supernova or Zshare.

      Stay away from torrents like Bearshare, Limewire etc as they carry Trojans and nasty viruses in some of their downloads.

    Can i download HD films and watch through my tv?

    Where can i download HD films from?

    • ANSWER:
      yes you can
      vga cable needs to be labeled as hd
      best and easiest way is to use apple tv - supports up to 1080i
      if you have 1080p it does not support it yet - you will not notice any difference between 1080p and 1080i though
      on hdtv you do not need any program - apple tv streams movie from yr computer to hdtv
      where can you download hd films from ?
      CinemaNow web page is
      CinemaNow - Movie Downloads - Online Movies - Download DVD Movies ...An online movie site that allows filmmakers to distribute their films via stream and download.

      Why HD movie downloads are a big lie
      Posted by George Ou
      There’s a lot of buzz lately about the delivery of HD TV and Movie content over the Internet with shows like Lost being delivered by ABC.com and other video download services with XBox360 or iTunes. I even have friends and colleagues telling me that BlueRay or HD-DVD won’t make it because HD will simply be delivered over the Internet. But there’s one dirty little secret that people are forgetting or that they don’t understand, IT’S NOT HD they’re getting over the Internet. Heck it’s not even NTSC 480i (720×480 60 fields interlaced) DVD quality when you really look at the amount of video data you’re getting!

      Oh sure they might call it HD because it happens to be 1280×720 resolution which sounds awfully high, but you’re talking about an audio/video stream that’s 1.3 mbps (megabits per second) at best. You can call it whatever you like and you can even claim it meets the minimum definition of HD because it’s 720p (1280×720) resolution but it ISN’T HD for the simple reason that the bit rate isn’t enough. A regular 480i DVD is either 2, 5, or 8 mbps and most modern dual-layer 8 GB DVD releases are at least 5 mbps but more likely 8 mbps. A typical DVD movie is approximately 6 GBs of data while a typical “HD” movie you download is only about 1.5 GBs of data. Do you honestly believe you’re getting more image information in that 1.5 GB so-called HD movie you downloaded versus that 6 GB DVD movie?

      [Update 3:35PM - I was a bit shocked to hear some people argue that a 1.3 mbps H.264 MPEG-4 based 720p 30-fps video stream can be better than an 8 mbps MPEG-2 480i 60-field DVD stream. I’m going to explain something; it’s impossible. MPEG-4 can compress data in a more efficient manner such that it can have a 1.4x advantage over MPEG-2 in compression ratios while maintaining the same perceived quality. However, there’s absolutely no way that newer compression formats can overcome a 4 or 6 fold disadvantage in bitrate. Compression - especially in the lossy world of video - is more of a subjective thing. MPEG-2 video is already compressed fairly efficiently and you’re really not going to squeeze out any more than a 2 fold improvement at best no matter how fancy the encoder is. There can be marginal improvements in the field of compression but there are never free lunches.]

      The fact that a DVD is only encoded in 480i video is unfortunate but it still has more video information and raw potential than a so-called HD movie download for the simple fact that it has 4 times more data. A 480i video stream can be “up-scaled” to a 1080i or 1080p 1920×1080 display with glorious results and I guarantee you that it looks better than that so-called HD 720p movie you spent at least 3 hours downloading over the Internet while your family complains the Internet connection is really slow.

      But truthfully speaking, the whole Blu-ray versus HD-DVD format war is silly because a regular dual-layer DVD can easily store 93 minutes of 12 mbps 1080i or 1080p H.264 or VC-1 encoded video with bare minimum HD quality that looks much better than normal MPEG-2 480i DVDs. This format would have been extremely easy to produce and the players could have cost less than 0. The only thing that HD-DVD gets you is that you can either store 3 hours of that same quality video or 100 minutes of good quality 20 mbps H.264 or VC-1 video. Blu-ray players for some reason decided to forego the more advanced video codecs like H.264 or VC-1 and they’re using the old MPEG-2 encoding scheme which neutralized the capacity advantage of Blu-ray media. [UPDATE 6/1/2007 - Newer Blu-ray titles have begun using H.264 so they’ve regained the capacity lead.] But instead, we have a format war where no one is really winning since Sony decided to cede their market in the next generation console wars with the PS3 to salvage the BlueRay format.

      Another huge misconception is that people tend to confuse HD movie downloads over the Internet with HD IPTV. While the acronym “IP” stands for “Internet Protocol”, people have the meanings reversed because Internet always involves IP but IP doesn’t always involve the Internet. What I mean by that is that IP could strictly be a closed-network thing on a LAN (Local Area Network).

      Note: It’s also a huge misconception that VoIP (Voice over IP) means Voice over the Internet because the vast majority of VoIP traffic happens on the LAN and gets switched over the PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network).

      IPTV requires 16 mbps per HD Channel and it would be IMPOSSIBLE for it to traverse the Internet in unicast traffic in the near tear or long term. IPTV works on a very localized level within a carrier’s own network where everything travels on local fiber-optic multi-gigabit networks on a multicast (or cached) level out to the DSLAM and only from there does it unicast to the user over a mile of a pair of copper cables. [Update 5:50 PM - Think of multicasting as a massive carpool where data is only transmitted once for everyone whereas unicast means the video bandwidth is multiplied by the number of users. Even a 2 mbps unicast stream turns in to a 20,000 mbps stream with 10,000 users where as a multicast or locally cached 16 mbps stream for 100,000 users is still means 16 mbps of traffic over the backbone.] That’s precisely why AT&T U-Verse wants to install miniature DSLAMs within a mile of their customers so they can support a 20 mbps DSL connection that can support a 16 mbps unicast HD IPTV stream over the last mile in addition to data access to the Internet. Other than U-Verse, Verizon’s FiOS (Fiber to the premises or home) is the only other way that IPTV can be delivered to the home. The Cable Internet companies don’t really care about IPTV because they deliver their digital television over a different frequency over the same coax cable and it’s a broadcast technology that sends out the same analog/digital signal to everyone’s house.

      This is precisely why HD Movie downloads are a big fat lie being pitched to consumers because even the delivery of 1.3 mbps unicast traffic will bring most parts of the Internet down to its knees if enough people use the service. The carriers are in a strategic position to be close enough to the customer that they can actually deliver true HD-quality IPTV with some level of video on demand and that scares the Googles of the world to death because there’s no way an Internet based 1.3 mbps make-believe HD video service can compete with true HD IPTV. That’s precisely why Google lobbied so hard to defeat the Telecom bill last year which would have deregulated the Telcos so they could implement IPTV and Net Neutrality was merely a political “poison pill” to kill the Telecom bill. More on this later …

    Where Can I Watch Films Online For Free?
    Is there a website where I can watch online films for free without registration? I've been on a few but they all take ages to buffer. Do you know any good ones?

    • ANSWER:
      Maybe you can try something called “satellite TV to PC software” which is becoming popular for good reasons. It works by receiving satellite TV signals over the Internet and converting them into a live, high resolution video feed on your desktop.When I first heard of this I wondered if it was even legal. It turns out it is completely legal,because these are FTA (free to air) satellite stations which are being broadcast from all over the world. The software just allows you to watch everything at any time anywhere without a satellite dish or receiver.Once you download the software you can instantly watch 3,000+ channels of movies, local and international news, live sports, TV shows, special events, music channels, kids channels, history, education, nature, special programming… It's much more variety than what I was getting from my local cable company. And it's all free. There's a small one-time fee for the software and that's it. There are no subscription fees or monthly charges… Nothing else to pay for…Ever.Here are the detailed reviews and comparisons of the Top 6 Internet Television Products on the market:

    What website can you watch Hannah Montana: The Movie 2009 where you don't have to pay anything?
    I want to watch Hannah Montana the movie now and I don't want to have to pay anything to watch it.

    • ANSWER:
      Cheapskate! Millions of dollars go into producing a movie and the producers and talent deserve a return on their investment.

      By seeking out a "free" online version of the film, you are cheating the many, many people who WORKED long, hard hours producing what you want to see for free.

      Watching bootleg movies online is the same as copying a CD and giving it away. You are cheating the artists who create your entertainment.

      Respect the work that goes into the movie and go to the multiplex and fork out the seven to ten bucks and see it with a clean conscience.

  50. QUESTION:
    What are your opinions on watching pirated movies?
    I really want to watch New Moon on the internet but i want to wait. What do you think about watching movies illegally on the internet. I've never done it before.

    • ANSWER:
      Look at it this way. If you created a film you spent much time and money on writing, producing, directing, staring in, building sets, costumes, props, make-up, special effects, advertising, music and so on, would you like some pube to pirate it for free? Would you not want to hunt that waste of oxygen down?

      Yeah, watching a film in a movie theater has become pricey- but it's still one of the cheapest forms of entertainment out there. I'm all for cracking down on video or audio pirates of any kind. We all want to be entertained, but where do people get off thinking that should be free? You want free, go to the library. They may not have the latest thing, but they often carry or can get a hold of anything else.

  11. QUESTION:
    Where do you develop your rolls of film in Dublin?
    I have just found out that Spectra don't give out free films any more. Do other places do?
    Why do you answer this serious question if you have got nothing to contribute?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi, I am not sure about Spectra rolls of films but as a photography graduate I can help you with good addresses of photo labs in Dublin.

      I find a great high street photo lab is Gunn's on Camden street, small family run shop with great prices and student discounts on film processing, rolls and all equipment. John Gunn and his daughters offer great and friendly service and are always ready to give you pieces of advise for a shoot or any technical difficulties you may encounter.

      If you're looking for top notch quality processing and printing, then I would advise you to go to professional photography lab, Photolab, on Lennox street, which offers an irreproachable service. You can choose between having your work hand printed or automatically processed. They offer great service at reasonable prices. This is probably the best option for a final year project or work you're going to sell.

      If you're looking for the cheap option and decent quality, then Boots, in Jervis Shopping Centre, definitely does the trick. I've rarely been disappointed and they offer reprints if you're not totally satisfied.

      Good luck with your photography work :-)

  20. QUESTION:
    Can you suggest the best way to use limewire?
    I want to download free films and music but want only those which the artists allow to download.
    Can it be used legally?

    • ANSWER:
      Agreed, Limewire is full of viruses, and since the uploader can change the file name easily, you never really know what you are getting unless you preview the filed during download.

      Rather try using a torrent client of sorts eg BitComet, and get your files from a torrent site. Most torrent sites allow for comments to be posted on all files and follow strict rules regarding content.

      Hope this helps.

  22. QUESTION:
    Can anyone recommend a really great free online film school?
    I want to take some free online film courses. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance

    • ANSWER:
      I would recommend going to youtube or googling this stuff. There are lots of online resources and step by step information available to you. Even documentaries on filmmaking sometimes have great tips.

      I've personally never heard of a free online course... you're not likely going to get professional tutoring for free, especially from a film school. If you really want to learn this stuff, you need to invest the money and time. Definitely better if you want to learn the technological side of filmmaking.

      Here's a list of film schools in the US that offer online tutoring. :)

    I got 2 of the free short films and they are downloaded. My itouch is plugged in already. How do i get the vids on my itouch?

    • ANSWER:
      iPod can only support mpeg4 video,so you must make sure the video is mp4 format ,you need to have a 3rd party tool to help you to convert dvds and video into mp4 or h264 format, add them into itunes library, then sync to ipod.

      Try DVD to iPod + iPod Video Converter Suite,it support convert video to iPod directly. Some other software need two steps: 1. convert video to avi; 2. convert output avi to iPod. That solution wastes lots of your time. We need only one step, direct convert video DVD to iPod. So this converter speed is far faster than others

    How to get random peeps to volunteer for film project? What are good places to find barefoot people for help?
    I'm a free-lance photographer/film artist (soon to be Film student) and I've been working on this short that I call "Idle Feet." Basically, what I'm aiming to do is capture a person sitting in a relaxed state, but with their feet propped up, as I'd be using the soles of their feet as the main point of focus... What I want to do is scout around and ask the help of random people, rather than use friends or family. I feel that by doing this, I get the perspectives of different people... What's really bugging me is how to go about asking random folks for their assistance. I get that people are sometimes uncomfortable in front of a camera, so I was wondering what were some ways that I could go about asking for volunteers, without coming off like a creeper or a weirdo. Plus, the other thing that I'm having trouble with is finding good places to actually find people that happened to be barefoot that I might could work with... Any suggestions on either topic would help... :-)

    How do i get the sims 2 free time film and literature membership?
    my sims has full enthusiasm for films, but no man has come to give his the membership to the secret lot. any help???

    • ANSWER:
      I know why. I've had the same problem!

      You don't have to make his enthousiasm 10, it has to be 5! Make it five and just go on with your life, then after a while the phone will ring and someone will tell you that if you keep up the good work, you'll receive membership. After that the head of the club will visit you and it's done!

      You can change your sim's enthousiasm by entering this code, while you're in the neighbourhood screen:
      >>> Boolprop testingcheatsenabled true
      >>> Now go back to your house and you'll see that you can drag all bars (including mood bars and relationship bars)
      >>> Make his enthousiasm for literature 5

      To set the boolpropcheat off, enter: "Boolprop testingcheatsenabled false"

      Good luck (altough you won't need any)
