And why not
I don't know if it will bust any blocks, but could be interesting from a human socio-psychological perspective if the two 'lives' are juxtaposed. Can't see Disney picking up the tab for it though
It's natural in Hollywood that if you have a big hit as a director, you pretty much get to make whatever you want, but this is one artistic conceit too far. Pirates of the Caribbean helmsman Gore Verbinski has reportedly acquired the rights to make a film about a Second Life obsessive who "cheats" on his wife. Sadville: The …
CSI: NY did a terrible episode/advert for Sadvile (ok, *more* terrible than most CSI:NY episodes) that featured this same basic plotline.
It was as terrible and cringe-inducing as you would expect.
My non-techie girlfriend was (justifiably) utterly bemused by the whole concept of Sadville.
A movie about people that leave inane comments on Youtube?
Or perhaps a tense courtroom drama about someone unjustly accused of downloading 3 dollars worth of songs via bittorrent?
They aren't just scraping the barrel - they have scraped all their way through and started digging.
... I hope there will be plenty of cinemas showing it in Sadville, after all, I won't have the time to return to the real world, fight my way over the avelanche of junk mail in my hall and step out of the house.
"Life is like a box of crayons. Most people are the 8-color boxes, but what you're really looking for are the 64-color boxes with the sharpeners on the back. I fancy myself to be a 64-color box, though I've got a few missing. It's ok though, because I've got some more vibrant colors like periwinkle at my disposal. I have a bit of a problem though in that I can only meet the 8-color boxes. Does anyone else have that problem? I mean there are so many different colors of life, of feeling, of articulation.. so when I meet someone who's an 8-color type.. I'm like, hey girl, magenta! and she's like, oh, you mean purple! and she goes off on her purple thing, and I'm like, no - I want magenta!" - John Mayer.
Sadville version: "Life is like a box of crayons. Except it's empty but for black, and red. Oh, and red is broken and somebody nicked the pencil sharpener"
The only people sadder than the Sadville fanbois will be the ones who go to see the film...
Actually its called "world of warcrack".
@ everyone else. I have been in SL for about two years now. I enjoy it. Stop by broo sometime, say you saw it on the reg. Maybe I will get out my penis gun.
As for a movie about the real people behind some of those avatars, some things I can do without knowing.... Next you'll be telling me about seeing clark kent in a phone booth changing clothes...
I think the implication here is that since one of the major contributory factors towards developing type II diabetes is excessive consumption of sugary foods and lack of exercise, it's another way of saying 'fat and lazy'. You may as well ask what being a chain smoker has to do with it.
What would you rather people who are unable to interract socially do? I'm interested, because most of the people I meet socially in "meatspace" are socially ept, good-looking, or both.
So, rather than sitting in front of a computer, or being shunned or patronised for being "ugly" or "weird" what would you have people do?
That said I've met a fair few people in SL who have "real lives" too but want to extend that social and creative aspect.
Wouldn't be suprised if it just turns out to be an update on you've got mail where the ineraction method isn''t really crucial to the story just the fact there is anonymous interaction.
After all you've got mail is based on a shop around the corner where the plot device was letters.
Bet any 'in-game' graphics shown are CGI'd to be a lot smoother and realistic than actually exist in Second Life though, wonder if it will have one those little disclaimers 'not actual game footage' on it?
2nd Life = No Life Squared.
giant willies attack all idiots. must have. Must be cartoon scrawl for kiddies. Charlton Heston put his vest on. 2nd coming shud happen in 2nd life.
Film must involve Russell T. Davies. Homo-schlock substitutuion 4 real life and dr. who, wot were u finkin? Worse than altern8 endins to Lotr. It'll be 2 camp 4 wurds.
No narrative - just burble. Random interactions & my avatar is a pink cube inta-secting wiv ur elf.
No story, just feel the sleeze quotient. M,furries. m'infantilitisirts. M' pink cube obscurantics. Flyin nobs d-send on us all.
blearrrgh. i iz sick on mi shorts.
After seeing it mentioned in the Reg a few times, I downloaded SL about a year ago and tried it out. It's pretty user-friendly; easy to figure out how to get around, equip objects and such. However, once you've learned all that, you realize there's nothing interesting to do. There are plenty of friendly people around to offer advice and even free crap, and surprisingly, some of them aren't into the sexual side of the game. I was never assaulted by flying penises in the entire three hours I spent wandering around, nor did I come across any place where they could be obtained (nor did I have the initiative to create them). Unfortunately, those three hours of teleporting around looking for something interesting are gone and I will not get them back. Boredom reigned. In short, SL = lametastic.
Movies about lame things, however, can be entertaining. Has anyone seen W.?
If an Aussie who had a temporary lapse in his sheep bothering activities can be prosecuted for possessing pics of cartoon characters, %deity% help the poor hack who laid out the last paragraph of this article because 'two thumbs up the kiddies' is just asking for trouble....
Gets popcorn, sits back and waits for the Wacqui police to turn up at El Reg central.
Paris, because you know two thumbs up would be a good thing.
