[2020-05-20 01:22:16] <Lucifer_arma> Z-Man: I'm ok with it in general, but I'm not sure about using it to replace recently deceased actors.
[2020-05-20 01:24:45] <Lucifer_arma> I'm ok if the actor died during production, and they need to finish the production. It's ethically the same as using a body double and a voice actor, like they did for Rise of Skywalker.
[2020-05-20 01:25:21] <Lucifer_arma> And I'm ok with the use of Tarkin for Rogue One, even though the actor's been dead for decades.
[2020-05-20 01:26:07] <Lucifer_arma> But the specific idea I'm not sure about is this: Using a young Solo, Leia, etc, and remaking the original trilogy and continuing from there as a photorealistic animated flick.
[2020-05-20 01:26:51] <Lucifer_arma> series, I mean, of course.
[2020-05-20 01:28:10] <Lucifer_arma> But I think if they make a photorealistic, but still identifiably cartoony style of animation, like a more advanced version of what's in Borderlands, I think that would make a nice style to use in place of turning animated shows into live action films
[2020-05-20 01:29:01] <Lucifer_arma> upgrade the animation style instead of hiring live actors, use voice actors instead, etc. Like, if Pixar had done the first big screen Transformers, would anyone have complained that it wasn't live action?
[2020-05-20 01:29:41] <Lucifer_arma> But then what happens when the photorealistic animation also eliminates the uncanny valley and it's possible to make videos that are 100% animated and completely indistinguishable from live action?
[2020-05-20 01:31:13] <Lucifer_arma> Does it become ok to make "live action" movies without real actors?
[2020-05-20 01:31:51] <Lucifer_arma> It's the same as the question some people are already asking that's the other way: Can you use a cast entirely made out of motion capture actors to make an animated flick like Toy Story?
[2020-05-20 01:32:50] <Lucifer_arma> Anyway, it's good to hear that some crackpots are admitting that homeopathy doesn't work. I'm still trying to look at the positives. :)
[2020-05-20 01:45:10] <Lucifer_arma> Also, in good-news-thats-about-to-change, Travis county has "flattened the curve". Hospitalizations, new cases, and new deaths have all leveled out.
[2020-05-20 01:46:27] <Lucifer_arma> of course, our idiot governor is still talking about opening more of the state, and it really doesn't help that he lives in Travis county, which is handling it pretty well. Houston and Dallas are getting hit pretty hard, and Texas as a whole is still increasing
[2020-05-20 01:46:49] <Lucifer_arma> So we've flattened the curve locally, but it probably won't last without the governor's support and the rest of the state. :(
[2020-05-20 01:47:18] <Lucifer_arma> (in case anybody missed it, Austin is in Travis county, so this is where I live)
[2020-05-20 14:44:17] <Z-Man> > But the specific idea I'm not sure about is this: Using a young Solo, Leia, etc, and remaking the original trilogy and continuing from there as a photorealistic animated flick.
[2020-05-20 14:45:22] <Z-Man> I would not watch anything involving purely the old movie's characters. There are too many things that can and will go wrong no matter what style of movie they make. Worse if it's a series.
[2020-05-20 14:46:54] <Z-Man> They won't do the characters justice, they won't do the story justice.
[2020-05-20 14:53:23] <Z-Man> Assuming that were not the case: Yeah, I'd rather have them make a real live action movie/series with new actors, or proper animation that is recognizable as such. Then they'd have an excuse to go for cartoonish over the top action sequences. There's just more artistic flexibility in either option.
[2020-05-20 14:55:07] <Z-Man> The third of the new Planet of the Apes movies was pretty much all motion captured CGI with just some human support roles :) Those were all some damn good movies, too.
[2020-05-20 14:59:01] <Z-Man> Heh, speaking of almost photorealistic CGI, we watched the Lion King remake last year. The funny thing about that look is that in my memory, it almost immediately got erased again and replaced by the old look, even though I only saw the old movie maybe twice. Well, and a lot of Lion Guard, the animated series about Simba's son, that probably helped.
