Out of the Blue

After living together for eight-some years, last night MrsBlue and I broke an annual tradition of talking about getting a Christmas Tree and decorating it, by actually getting a tree and decorating it (we're pretty non-denominational around here, but religion aside, we're both into the festive side of this). We could have gotten one cheaper by waiting until after the holidays, but waiting until a week before Christmas, we still managed to get a bargain on a tree, and so with A Charlie Brown Christmas appropriately playing in the background we had our little soiree.

That's the Blue's News logo used in the winter of '98
You are repeating yourself. But the logo is repeated indeed, being used in the holiday seasons of 2000, 2001 and this year. What's your point?

>>> Anybody able to find it to let me know where it is?

I'd do a search of the drive w/ *.*, and then sort by date and time. It should be towards the bottom (or top depending on how you sort it).

I've never like the search function under XP, it seems a bit flaky.

>>> Could you fill us in on what the commentators said about it? Did they say how it was leaked?

I wish I could! I support (hardware, software) a group of stock traders. Since they follow the markets and news they have about 10-15 tvs, all running news. I happened to glance over at one and noticed that the footage looked REAL familiar. As I approached the tv (it was muted - since the traders are usually yelling to each other about deals) Fox news popped up their logo at the bottom with a caption that said something to the effect of "AC130 Gunship attack".

It was about 4pm cst, if that helps...

Here's a link w/ an excerpt:
http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,31465,00.html

The might of American firepower is coming to light in some pirate video showing an AC-130 gunship engaging the enemy in Afghanistan. FNC Correspondent Major Garret will have that story.

If anyone else happened to catch it, I'd love to hear about the reporters take on it and how it got released.

25. T3 Trailer Dec 19, 2002, 23:46 Trey
 
Some technical help from someone wiser than me this evening. I am trying to save this video to show to friends. Usually I can go into my Temporary Internet Files and find the .mov extension and save it. This time it does not appear, even though I am watching the trailer in a browser window. To me this means it was downloaded to my machine, but I am still unable to find it. Anybody able to find it to let me know where it is? I have done a search of the hard drive with a *.mov but still no luck. I am running XP Pro if that matters. Thanks

>>>I do believe they always intended for the Matrix to be a Trilogy of movies, but wanted to see how the first one would do (kinda like Star Wars when it came out). I seriously doubt that it'll have the "taked on sequel" feel, considering that both new movies were always part of the overall story. I'm really looking forward to them.

<<<MATRIX SPOILER ALERT?>


Keanu has said something to the effect of "The first movie is about birth, the second is about life, and the third is about death." I think that explains what happens to Neo in 3. It's my understanding that part 2 and 3 take place in a single 24 hour period, with 2 being mostly in the Matrix, and 3 being mostly in the real world.


<<<END SPOILER>>>


Edit: trying to make it swipeable, so it won't ruin it for everyone...

Depends on weather they sent the T-1000 back BEFORE Kyle went back...I agree, it's a stretch, but that again, so is time travel in general. And we all know how sequels like to exploit loopholes.

And to answer another poster (whose name I missed) I also heard that Ah-nold was signed for both parts 3 and 4.

Oh, and in the T3 trailer: "She'll be back."

HAHAHAHA.... how lame can they get?

I'm sure it'll be a decent action movie, but...ugh...
I agree. I want a future Terminator movie.

Course, didn't Arnold already agree to doing T4?
I swear I heard that a couple months back.

I don't have too high hopes either. I had been hoping it would take place during the future wars as the whole time travel gimmick has been used twice and does not need to be used a third time. Besides in the first one I recall Reese saying that the time machine was destroyed after he went through. Wouldn't that make the whole T2 plotline difficult let alone a T3?

Anyway not like this matter as I, like everyone else, will probably still go see it.

I have to say the T3 trailer disappointed me a bit. Especially the "She'll be back" line.

After seeing 2 movies from the Lord of the Rings trilogy, I find myself expecting a lot more from movies. LotR raises the bar quite a bit and movies that looked like they would be good a couple years ago just don't seem to be that exciting anymore. I have yet to see Star Trek Nemesis, but I'm not expecting much from it.

And T3 does look like a lot of been there done that. Probably would have been good if they released it 2 or 3 years after T2.

And what are they thinking making a sequel to "The Matrix"?

So Blue, does this mean you'll have HtwD dancing on your piano?

I thought it actually looked pretty good. If the story is put together correctly (which I thought they have been floating around this story and idea for a good 6 or 7 years so ample time), and the action scenes are all as elaborate as they were in that trailer (I mean look at all that destruction at most of those parts, that costs money), I think this movie might be one of the better ones of the year.
