Looks like there were very few action scenes as the codes are now out.

I'm not sure I will squeeze the whole movie in anytime soon, but I did watch one of the more memorable sequences. (The Rocketeer's first public appearance and rescue). It definitely didn't feel rushed or anything less than the full treatment. I can't say it was the best motion code of my life, but it met my expectations.

Great film though. We'll definitely be giving it the full spin here in a little bit, but I didn't want you lot breathing down my neck.

lol, thanks for that feedback. Sounds like it is worth checking out.

So, so good. Such a great movie. Make sure you are comfortable in your ideal movie watching mode. The characters in that movie are awesome, and there is one character who, in my opinion, sits equally with the most cold, menacing movie characters ever played, and his kills are just... brutal.

Give your thoughts on the movie after you watch it!

Man, I had a feeling today was the day and I WAS RIGHT! Drive is up!

So is, um, Star Trek: Generations.

That is all.

Very nice, thanks!

Does anyone know if Hugo is on the list to be encoded? I thought I saw it on the forthcoming list, but now it is not, and is not on the list of recent films. Hugo, in both standard and 3D, is an obvious film for Dbox. Far more than a film like Contagion.

I don't recall it ever being on the list.

I thought I saw it on the list. It was one of the reasons I decided to purchase it. If it isn't on the list, then they must have removed it??

I watched Drive last night and I have no idea why it's been so hyped up. It was a competent film, but the word "plain" sums it up. The MFX were nice for the driving scenes though.

I agree! I could swear it was on the list, and now it is not. I sent an email to Dbox, hopefully they can explain why the status changed, and whether they plan on coding it.

I run a change detection logger on D-Box's website and checking the available logs I could find no mention of Hugo stretching all the way back to the beginning of last December.

Yes,

and as a neurophysiolgist/neuroradiology/neuroscience guy, it is actually closer to 1K... blind people are able to get up to 1.5 kHz

But I think 500 Hz is where we ideally want to be. foam padding makes that a challenge, but doesn't change the goal. In other words, if you were making a tactile suit/clothing, you'd probably want up to about 750 Hz.

I think if you went into Drive with huge expectations, or any movie with huge expectations, it can 'somewhat ruin' the move. I remember people talking about The Hangover (1) ... so many people told me how funny it was and how much they loved it... certainly it fell way short of what I was expecting. That's why I try not to even discuss the most trival aspects of movies with those that have seen it. I can read a few generic reviews on amazon.com to know whether it is worth a purchase. I simply don't talk with people about movies in the commercial theater.

I enjoyed drive.

Hugo was up for sure in the past.

This is weird, codes for Insidious were released today. I don't recall that ever being on the list. Nevertheless, I know someone on this thread was asking for it, so enjoy!
post #4972 of 6359
Thats great to hear about Insidious. I thought it was the best of the bunch in regards to the people who made the paranormal activity 1-3 and also made insidious. I have not seen paranormal 3 yet though.

I think the codes will add a lot of scare factor! Still want to give accolades to the coder who did "Devil" with M. Knight Shamylan movie. The elvevator scenes in pitch black were very creative and simply showed the power of 'ad-libbing' capabilities of D-Box. Could not have coded that pitch black elevator scene any better!!

Scary movies and D-Box, outstanding!!

Three of us saw it on the web site. It was on there, there is no question about that.

I sent D-Box an email asking about both issues -- that it was on the web site, and then removed, and whether it will be coded. I received a vague response -- "Thank you for your interest in D-BOX technology. The motion code director will take good note of your suggestions and see if it’s possible to add support for “Hugo”. Keep an eye on our web site, new D-BOX motion code are being added all the time."

D-Box was historically had strange taste in movies. Hugo is a no-brainer to code. It won five Oscars and was AFI Movie of the Year. So they send me a vague response, and code other strange movies instead.

Hugo will probably be coded in four or five months, as has been the case for other award winning films.

No, I still have a question about that. It's not in the logs, and the logs don't lie. I also personally do not remember that.

If several people witness an accident, and each witness hears the other describe the accident to the police, one witness's testimony can cloud the memories of the other witnesses, thereby turning a red car into a blue car, or in this case, attributing a title to D-Box's upcoming coding list that was never there to begin with.

You just reminded me, The Hurt Locker is still AWOL from the world of MFX. Too bad.

Btw, in other news, it looks like the Czech Republic received another huge batch of re-syncs today.

Maybe you can fill us in on these logs.

What would you like to know? It's through changedetection.com and I've had them tracking the site for me since the start of last year.

Web address works for me. Thanks.

Update on Hugo. I received the following response from D-box:

"Our motion director watched the movie and after evaluation, it’s been decided that there are not enough movements to add D-BOX support to this movie."

Well that is sad.
post #4980 of 6359
So I just watched the trailer to Hugo as it has been a while. The trailer must contain all the action this movie has to offer? Even the train plowing through the station looked like it was enough for mfx. Perhaps I should just see the movie but I think I may wait. Stranger things have happened.
