Gore Verbinski was attached to the Bioshock movie so that's super interesting. Baby Driver is an interesting movie to compare with Ant-Man in this regard, and Del Toro has been injecting his movies with the DNA of failed projects

There was a Bioshock movie? And I assume it's been cancelled, or still in dev Hell? Aw... and Ant-Man was actually pretty fun without Wright's direction, but I can only imagine that's because of his contributions to it that Marvel kept, and whatever Yesman they replaced him with just trying to bite his style anyway; I can't imagine how much better it would've been if Disney had just kept him on, and let him do with it what he wanted.

Yes, you can tell Verbinski salvaged some of his Bioshock adaptation for that movie. If you watch (especially twice or even three times and then also watch Tron Legacy) you'll notice there's a lot of bioshocky stuff going on.

A Cure For Wellnes was a mixed bag of a movie.

Stu I also remember DaMU's Lone Ranger thread. It's still funny.

Lady Bird isn't perfect and perhaps a bit overpraised but still is an effective coming of age film. I approve of all you watching this fine movie. Tomorrow I might probably watch The Shape of Water.

I particularly remember his running gag of listing how many minutes the movie had left in its running time at whatever point he was on, which started off as accurate, but then increased steadily as he went to an absurd amount, haha...

Yes, but you need to learn how to make a Battle Royale game because that's all people play nowadays. Have you even heard of a little thing called PUBG? It's like Bitcoin in video game form

Recommended System Requirements:
Nvidia GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 7870 equivalent DX11 GPU
2 GB VRAM
Core i5 2.8 Ghz
8 GB RAM
Windows 7/8/10 64-bit

Minimum:
Intel HD 4000
Core i3 2.4 Ghz
4 GB RAM
Windows 7/8/10 64-bit + Mac OSX Sierra

Unreal 4 is a very efficient engine, the development software needs a lot of power. The game is a good blueprint for modern game mechanics, it's very "new" and clean in doing so. I'm impressed by how easily they let you switch up between building and combat where building is a viable combat mechanic (building walls and whatnot when peeps start shooting at you)

Unity and the UNREAL ENGINE have video tutorials explaining how they work. They're quite overwhelming. I'm bailing on this again and going to focus on screenplays and finding Steve, or whatever that guy's name was.
