    • Rogue One

      1 week ago

      Radius55 Site Admin

      Finally got to see it yesterday. Even going late, I managed to walk in with nothing in the way of spoilers and in fact had managed to get by without having even watched more than bits of the trailers.


      I walked out with my faith that a Star Wars movie produced after the 1980's could be good.


      A good movie has to be interesting. That sounds simple enough, but simple things end up being the hardest. In order for the movie as a whole to be interesting, the parts have to be as well. Story. Characters. Settings. They don't all have to be uniformly spectacular, but if one fails to make the grade by too much, it's noticeable and disproportionately drags the end result down. For example, the settings in the prequels were excellent and the story was, if a bit predictable, decent. Yet the characters were terribly executed from Jar-Jar to Anakin, to the silly love story with Padme. While a bit better, the Force Awakens also suffered from a Mary Sue main character and a recycled story. It did better than I through III, but missed the bar set by the original trilogy.


      Then Rogue One came in and nailed it. First, the settings. Obviously, I've never had a problem with the settings in any Star Wars movie (except on a scientific level, but I can suspend disbelief). But R1 showed a simply amazing variety. Everything from space stations besides the Death Star to a beautiful atoll. And then there was the actual space combat. For a series called Star Wars, the prequels didn't have all that much, well, space! A couple of short scenes in Phantom Menace and then the Chancellor rescue in Sith, and that's it. R1 had an honest to God fleet battle! One we actually see from start to finish.


      Next, story. Again, I have to applaud Edwards for it. Obviously, there were a few parts that felt forced (no pun intended). I'm looking at you giant rebel "Let's Surrender" conference! But it's hard to be perfect, and it helped make the rest of the story better, so net gain. Every action had a clear purpose behind it, and there weren't any moments that jumped out as defying reason. The movie also had arguably the hardest piece of the timeline to fill. Cannon before and after R1 is well defined, so the writers were restricted on both sides. A prequel can fill in an unlimited amount of backstory while a sequel can always invent something new. Rogue One had to work inside of a confined section of time, and did it brilliantly.


      Finally, the characters. Oh, god the characters. I guess after 4 episodes with (in my opinion) very poor character design, Rogue One only had to be halfway decent for me to love it. But they managed to go beyond that. The original trilogy had five of what I'd call "Main Characters" and did a great job of showing their growth and development over three films. The prequels had just three (and some minor ones that nearly cross the line) and were awash with unrealistic motivations and no not much in the way of worthwhile development. Rogue One had six and managed to give every one a distinct personality and set of consistent motivations. More than that, actual growth. From Cassian's heartless beginning to eventual redemption to Jyn's determination and acceptance of the Rebellion as a cause worth dying for, the writers did an amazing job of making relatable and interesting cameos. The cameos were well done, but didn't distract from the main show, and the use of CGI for Tarkin and Leia was superb. Not perfect, but there wasn't enough screen time for the bit of Uncanny Valley to be a problem. Oh, as can I take a second to talk about K-2SO. Because I want to say how truly amazing he was as a character. That's how comic relief should be done. Not with poop and fart jokes. And the writers never took that humor an inch too far. When push came to shove, K-2SO did an amazing job walking the line between humor and competence.


      And no list of characters is complete without a villain. The original trilogy knew this. The prequels screwed up and had a single one for each episode, making them flat and boring (Yes, Darth Sidious was there, but not as a person the characters interacted with). Episode VII looks like its trying to imitate the originals, but has Darth Emo leading the Legions of Evil for Evil's Sake. A good villain has a motivation beyond destroying the world. The Empire in the original trilogy wanted order. A fascist order, but still order. And after the Clone Wars and the Jedi "Treason" the public and military could conceivably be behind that sort of thing. The New Order of VII decided to throw that out the window and create an army built around random acts of evil. A villain's army can't think of themselves as evil. It just doesn't make sense. But the New Order had too many people being too unrealistically evil for me to really respect them as a legitimate enemy. But enough Force Awakens bashing. The original Empire is back, and just as good. Vader also makes a return in a major supporting role, and plays it beautifully. Finally, there's Krennic, the main bad guy for the whole endeavor. I personally liked him, and I'm going to borrow a quote from Brad Torgensen's review that I wholeheartedly agree with: "[Krennic] was actually composed, and sympathetic. Not because he’s not bad—he is. But because you can see how the pressure cooker at the top of the Imperial pecking order breeds, and then grinds down and uses up, capable men. I didn’t root for him, but I didn’t actively root against him either. He was . . . necessary."


      None of this praise is to say the movie is perfect. I thought the romance at the end between Cassian and Jyn was unnecessary and shoehorned in. The aforementioned Grand Surrender Party was silly, and the Empire's final destruction of Scarif seemed pointless. I think a capture and execution or Cassian and Jyn jumping from the tower to avoid capture by a squad of stormtroopers would have made more sense, not Tarkin firing on the base (with very poor accuracy compared to Jedha) when the Rebels were nearly all dead. But that's small beans compared to an otherwise excellent movie, and gets an 8.5/10 in my book. That puts it tied for second in my overall movie lineup. For those keeping score at home, that would be:


      1) Empire Strikes Back (9/10)

      2) A New Hope (8.5/10)

      2) Rogue One (8.5/10)

      4) Return of the Jedi (7.5/10)

      5) The Force Awakens (6/10)

      6) Revenge of the Sith (5.5/10)

      7) Attack of the Clones (4.5/10)

      8) Phantom Menace (3/10)

    • RT Mafia Game

      2 months ago

      Radius55 Site Admin

      Anyone who's interested, I'm hosting an RT Mafia game in the next few weeks. Sign ups are here.


      If you've never heard of Mafia (or Werewolves) it's sort of like D&D Lite, with a PvP element introduced. Players are assigned to be either civilians or a smaller number of mafia. The goal of each group is to eliminate the other. Days are broken up into Investigation, Lynch, and Whack phases. During an investigation, the Cop selects one player who will have their role revealed. Then during the lynch phase, the group votes on a player to kill. Finally, during the whack, the mafia decide on another player to murder. But if they do manage a successful whack, they leave behind clues to their identities buried inside of the stories I'll be writing for each day.


      It's a bit more complicated than that (there are a few other roles and abilities) but that's the general gist of things. You really don't need to have any experience to play. So feel free to sign up if you're on the site regularly and want to have some fun.

    • New Mexico

      4 months ago

      Radius55 Site Admin

      Hey All!


      Those of you who have known me for a long time may remember I used to go dark for a couple of months every summer while I went up to New Mexico. What with college, internships, and now jobs I haven't been able to go up there in a while, much less spend a whole summer there. But last week I managed to take a week off to have some fun. Description below, though I've linked the images instead of embedded them to save space.


      When most people think of New Mexico, they think of deserts and heat. Well, that may be true of the southern part, but the north is in the Rocky's, so mountains, forests, and cool weather. That last part was really nice, going from the 100 degree Houston humidity to dry highs in the 70's.


      Anyway, after moving my sister into her new apartment in Austin, the family headed out for the 13 hour drive from Waco to northern New Mexico. Listened to an audiobook most of the way, and I have to say that the Monster Hunter International series is a seriously good set of books. Great narrator, too. But, eventually, we got to our destination over here.


      Monday the family went hiking in a little place in Southern Colorado called Platoro. It's an old mining community north of the Cumberland Pass (not to be confused with the Cumberland Gap over in Kentucky) that now has some lodges and closes down every winter. It's also at 10,000 feet and goes up from there. So, obviously, on our first day after coming up from basically sea level, we climbed this. I'll admit that the original plan was to just go a few miles. Instead, we ended up hiking four and a half miles of trail and about a thousand feet up to the peak and the little pond up there. So a nine mile round trip. Worth it, though, and got some cool pictures.


      Early in the Climb

      Valley 1

      Valley 2

      Obligatory Selfie

      After the Hike


      The next few days were mainly rest and recuperation. Went on some hikes, hunted for deer antlers, ate some of the (very good) local food. That sort of stuff. Then a few other relatives came in and we went to a little town in Colorado called Pagosa Springs.


      If you're ever in the area, I highly recommend it. Beautiful country, rafting and tubing in the summer, near the Wolf Creek ski resort for the winter, good people. And then there are the hot springs it's named for. They're a bit pricey, but definitely worth it. Oh, and the Malt Shoppe (conveniently located next to the local Pot Shop) is pretty awesome. Didn't get to go this year, though. Good hiking, too, but unfortunately we didn't get to do much for a few reasons. We did end up stopping at a small waterfall with a short trail. Of course, it decided to rain (and hail) while we were hiking, but there was a convenient cave, right next to where it came down. After that it was a soak in the springs and then a trip back to New Mexico for dinner at a steak house called Cliff View with some really excellent food and a view of the Brazos Cliffs. I've also come to find out they were filming some Wolverine stuff right there the week before. Sorry to have missed it, but at least there weren't any crowds.


      After the other family left, I went back to hiking some of the other areas. Here's the view from the fishing lodge I used to work at during the summers years ago. Then I climbed a nearby ridge and got another view of the same area. Behind the ridge ended up being a hidden plateau and the river feeding the lake. Bit of a drop, though.


      There's also a lot of wildlife up there. Throughout the week I saw turkeys, deer, a grouse, more deer, and even a fox. The last I'd never seen up there before, and I'm pretty sure it was a mother trying to lead me away from her den. She'd run a ways, stop, and make the strangest yipping noise until I walked over, then repeat. It's hard to describe the sound, but let's just say I now know exactly what the fox says. Aside from those, I heard coyotes (very annoying at 3 am) and some family saw a mountain lion.


      But all good things come to an end. So we drove to Albuquerque (HA spell check! I didn't need you for that one!) on Saturday night, had some really good Greek for dinner, and flew out on the 7 am to Love Field in Dallas. I'll say one thing about Southwest Airlines, they're a lot better than American. I've mostly flown the latter for the last few years, but SW was cheap, right on time, professional, and Love Field (their hub) has a Whataburger! Plus I got an exit row, which is awesome for tall people like me.


      Then it was a 4 hour drive back to Houston with my insanely ticked off cat who's currently sulking in the other room. I guess he's just mad I put him through the drive and deprived him of the playmate he was staying with. But now I'm home and tomorrow's work. I'm a bit bummed that vacation's over, but I have fun memories and decent internet access again, so there's that.

      Hey Austin, is there an efficient way for us to flag an obvious spambot account, not necessarily a specific post? Some accounts have the blatant spam in their "About Me" and I'm sure they're posting spam in video comments somewhere (it used to be easier when sponsors could see the log of where they've been posting). I have been flagging their profile picture (which has all the hallmarks of spambot accounts: stock photo, questionable links in the 'About Me', and/or photo of a scantily clad model) which would hopefully draw the admins' attention to the profile itself. How should I proceed? Thanks!

        Flagging any post they make works. If it's a spam post we just delete the entire account. But flagging the post where they spam is best.

        I've seen the flags on the profile pictures and that's a great way to get us to those accounts quickly. Outside that and posts, there really isn't a way to flag "accounts" per se, but if you ever got a list of them you could just DM one of us, which would also be effective. Thanks and keep up the hunting!

      Well there appears to be a cluster going on in Barb's comments. Looks like you and Daniel have taken care of that. It got me wondering, between Jack's Clap-Trap give away and Barb's, what percentage of users follow directions. I can see how many comments the original post got. I suppose I could count each comment on Barb's profile to figure out its percentage relative to the journal post comments. Do you think it's fair to say that for each user who posted on Barb's profile, they would have gone ahead and posted in the journal once either of you two corrected them?

        Rough guess is 99+% follow directions based on the number of journal comments vs number of user comments. I'll also note boost of the user comments were by new our rarely used profiles that probably didn't know their way around the site and thought the comment tab was the same as the journal comment link.

      You would see the biggest gift would be from me
      And the card attached would say thank you for being a friend!!!

      Radius55, Hey don't know if you remember me from RTX 2014 but I'm back and I'm here to stay (an active member of the community). I was going through some tough times and had to take a break. But now I'm back and I wonder if you would be ok with me adding you on Xbox and if you have Steam it would be really cool if we could try some games together :). I just wanted to give you a head's up my GT is FierceShade (so expect a friend request to you from this account) and when I looked you up on Steam I either couldn't find you or the closest account to yours that I did find was Private so I just wanted to give you a heads up in advance alright. My steam is ShadeKing like my name and has a tobi icon as its profile pic

        Works fine for me. Try logging out and back in, switching browsers, and restarting your computer. If none of those works, it's probably your ISP or something particular about your computer. The episode is also available on youtube.

        Tell them to log out and in again. Adam recently tweeted to do that to solve the issue.

        Oh I know, I was meaning like trying to relieve my stress I went through this whole week from getting my work for this week as well as next week done. Anyways I suppose I'll speak with you later. Again good to meet you.

        You, too? Just finished one for my embedded systems course. Fun class, but building a prototype and writing about 250 lines of code a week gets rough, especially on top of other stuff and documentation.

        Noticed you're a PE. Haven't you realized yet that weekends aren't for relaxing? They're just for doing all the work you need to for the next week? God, I can't wait to graduate and go to set hours. I don't even care all that much if I'm working 9-10 hour days. At least once I go home, my time is mine.

      • IndiaRT28

      Hey, man. First of all, sorry about the duplicate RvB thread, I didn't see the other one when I made it. Second, since X-Ray and Vav is official, and we have a general release time, I figured it was about time for a forum (here). I wondered if you would be open to "sticky-ing" it along with the other AH Show topics. Thanks!

      I really feel like I'm being persecuted here. Just because I don't have an extra chromosome doesn't mean I should be excluded from the festivities in the S12 thread.

      If anything it's the last night's skeleton crew's fault I was banned. I would like the ref to check the fucking tapes on this one, what else was I supposed to do?

      Seriously though, I promise I'll be chill.

        If you know the approximate date and location of the comment, just keep scrolling down in a person's comments section. The comments section automatically loads as you scroll down. Beyond that, I've got nothing.

    Have you named your ban hammer?

    The Banhammer needs no name. It is known by action alone.

    How long have you been a site admin?

    | Asked by: SRob 9 months ago

    Became one October 2012, so about three and a half years.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "Audio Pockets". Podcasts? Sorry, can't help you there. Don't have any control over the technical aspects of distribution.
