When the economy tanked, it fell to money-starved governments to bail everyone out. Today’s youth had nothing to do with that profligacy, but are being called upon to “grow up” and shoulder the adult responsibility of paying the debt off.
Today’s youth face a grim future not of their own making. Is it any wonder that they’re angry about it? What they are asking for is what previous generations so eagerly gobbled up for themselves. If those generations now believe their entitlements were too generous, then, perhaps, in the spirit of sharing the burden, they might want to give some of them back.
Interesting way of looking at it…
My parents and their friends certainly wouldn’t see it that way. Of course they were all born in the ’50s.
This Engadget article contains a comparison between 48fps (50p) and 24fps. Sure, your 48fps looks “smoother” but to my eyes, as well as anyone who grew up watching films it looks unnatural, like a soap opera. It’s that same look that lots of Sony TVs add with their damned Motion Flow (which is the reason I cannot watch movies on my parents large 50” screen at home).
To those who prefer video games, it probably looks great.
Let’s also not forget they they didn’t even shoot 24p, the just down-converted their 50p video and added a bunch of filters so it’s not a true fair comparison.
I absolutely love this alternate remix that appeared on 45 RPM singles of Off the Wall. It’s more than just a simple edit, it’s a whole new mix. There’s lots of added guitar bits and it has an overal brighter and more exciting sound.
Sorry guys, I don’t care about your theories for Hitchcock’s “original intentions”. There’s a reason that, in the end, the film was shot flat. It’s how Hitchcock intended it, and to mess with the master’s work is sacrilege.
3D retrofitting is no better than the colourizing of black and white films, and to argue otherwise is sheer ignorance.
I’m all for a re-release of Rear Window, it’s one of my favourite Hitchcock films. But in 2D. The way it was intended.

Batman is the narrator. Fucking Batman!
Shut down the internet. This is the greatest video ever.
