Rainy Day Conversation

This afternoon, I met my friend and schoolteacher Shade and I learnt several things about films, anime and authors.

1)    IMAX films in 3D are the highest quality, so book cinema seats as far back of the screen and in the centre of the hall, whenever possible. This is due to the parabolic design of the screen and you do not want to lose peripheral details. Plus, the spectacles are expensive and therefore capture all the clarity and details.
2)    The production and standards of musical soundtracks in animated films are as elaborate as a mainstream Hollywood film. Here is singer Angela Aki doing her song ‘Kiss Me Goodbye’ for PlayStation 2’s game, Final Fantasy.
3)    There is some lack of clarity about the Harry Potter films, as it would take more screen-time to explain the reasons behind the motivation behind the key characters like Professor Dumbledore and his death.
4)    There is tremendous detail in each of J.K. Rowling’s seven Harry Potter books; The Order of The Phoenix is not her best work among the collection. The books can be described as adult fantasy-fable.
5)    Many of the latest role-playing games (RPG in another time) are rated for adults, like M-audience only. Be warned that some have strong adult content and language.
6)    Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon is best seen on an IMAX theatre. The new girl, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is hot; Megan Fox is hotter!
7)    Steven Spielberg directed The Adventures of Tin Tin: The Secret of the Unicorn (2011); the next film would be directed by Peter Jackson. Andy Serkis is the link between the two directors as he provided the voice talent in The Lord of The Rings (Gollum) and Captain Haddock. Serkis will reprise his role as Gollum in the 2-part The Hobbits film in 2012 and 2013.
