The 2012 Holiday Movie Round-Up!

So I saw a crapload of movies during the holiday break and just wanted to write a short bit on each one!

The Hobbit


I watched The Hobbit in 3D and at the high-frame rate (HFR) screening.  Did NOT like!  The high-frame rate takes away from the cinematical magic feel with the traditional 24 fps frame rate.  As a result, everything moved too quick (and in some cases more jerky, because you can see every little motion) and seemed more live than what you’re used to seeing in a movie.  It makes it all very disconcerting and it feels like you’re watching soap opera style filming.  In addition, as a gamer, the HFR really reminded me of something that I’m used to seeing out of a video game and not from a movie.  So in my head, it was almost like a translation or processing error.  “Wait a minute, I’m not supposed to see that there!”.

Gaming and God: An Ongoing Conversation With My Pastor (Part 4)

It has been nearly a year since the last time I've posted to this topic!  Wow, the letters that myself and Matt have exchanged have been queued up.  I wish that I could fast-forward to what we've been talking about now, but alas, it can wait.  The following letters were originally written in Fall of 2011, so a while back!  That's pre-Gangnam Style!  Much has changed since then.  But please enjoy the conversation.

If you're missing out on past letters, you can find part 1 (here), part 2 (here) and part 3 (here).

My response letter to Matt:


Hey Matt,

I have to do a big rewind, I need to get on top of this as I feel it was a meaty discussion!  It’s been many months since our last correspondence on this topic, with different discussions sure to sprawl.
