Well if there is a monster you not gonna stand to get a good shot, although thats common in movies this wasn't trying to be a movie. Have you ever turned on a camera then ran with it, as fast as you can go, then watched it? It normally WAY shakier then what was shone in the movie.

You get some good views of the monster irregardless of the shaky-cam, enough to piece it together. I figured out what the thing looked like before the big close up. Speaking of that scene, you mean to say that there's NO WAY that they didn't see it coming? I mean, the OPEN?

Another question I have is when the bridge gets taken out. Again, no one saw it coming? No panic whatsoever? No military warning that it's coming their way? It was a planned evacuation with a helicopter overhead, so no fool grabbed a bullhorn and screamed, "IT'S TRAP!" Which brings me back to my point: you can't disguise a 250 ft. monster. Not without taking certain liberties.

I dunno, you're talking to a guy who liked AVP:R over this this movie so take it with a grain of salt. Let the hate-mail...begin.

I love the rain in Washington. All day we had a light drizzle and a haze of fog over everything. It felt as if a soft, velvety hand was brushing my cheek. Everything was so clean and fresh. And at night when all the streetlights came on, it looked as if the world was glowing.
The fog was so thick that all the people walking by looked like shadows or ghosts, and the Christmas lights still out made everything look so surreal.
Best. Rain. Evar.

Plus, because of the flooding in some areas, the worst student in our class can't make it. No more plagiarism, hurrah!

Ah, so you're saying that there isn't even any realism in the camera work...?

No the movie isn't realistic at all IT A GIANT MONSTER! If you compare it to other movies though is very realistic.

So then you're saying that the threat of the monster never feels real then...?

I've seen that before and neat as it is, I think I'd prefer the Zero Suit Samus...or a classic Varia Suit Samus...Fusion Suit would be pretty cool too, really...

I have the Zero Suit statue with the light up base pre-ordered as well. I already have the Varia suit and lemme tell you, it's pretty sweet.

I love my journalism teacher.

Why?

She assigned to us an assignment involving a microphone. Yay, microphones!

Now, to just figure out how to work them...

Actually, no. Pretty sure the only hot teacher I've ever had was Butterfield, the chemistry teacher. As a plus, I think she's still single!
