Dont tell me, you're more of a Pearl Harbor fan?

Sorry!


Pearl Harbour...

'' I think World War 2 just started ''




I'm afraid the line is actually "I think World War 2 just hit us" and gets misquoted all the time! The actual line is perfectly acceptable IMO, if it had been the above, then yes, that would've been annoying.

Are you sure? I always thought it was "just started". Tom Sizemore's line, yep?

Can anyone who owns this dreadful movie verify?

Josh Hartnett says the line! Yeah it's "just hit us". It's when he's on the phone to Tom Sizemore's character

Shouldn't that be a bottle of Hellman's Mayonnaise?

I actually sat here thinking of possible semen substitutes I could use. Mayonnaise, certain hand creams, hair gel, squirty soap, custard etc.

In the end I decided to keep things simple and go with the initial shock factor of something wet hitting your face when watching porn.

[EDIT]

I've also now got an image in my head of someone sitting down and watching porn, and suddenly being hit in the face with an actual bottle of Mayonnaise

I just checked my Pearl Harbor blu ray and Josh Hartnett definitely says "I think World War 2 just hit us". It happens at 1.38.40

My gawd, you're right. Well, that makes a bit more sense now. And just a teeny-tiny bit less offensive overall.

Whoa, whoa, easy up there, mister, I checked it out on Youtube.

By the way I was in Curries today and I felt my eyes surreptitiously drawn towards a big ole 60" 3D telly and I was actually thinking, "hmmmmm...." Your fault, damnit.

Quick question DK, how big is the screen on your 3D set up, and is it LED or Plasma?

The missus' brother in law's 3D set up is very impressive and is (I think) around the 55" mark, maybe 52" or 57", I don't know for sure. The TV I'd been looking at was an LG Plasma, 50" I think, but some people I'd spoke to at work said the 3D effect doesn't work on smaller screens. I can imagine that to be true and I don't want to get a set too small to really get the effect. It certainly works on the brother in laws, but again, I'm not 100% sure how big that is. Anyone know if the Plasma or LED screens are better for 3D and Full HD? I know when HD took off years ago it was mostly LCD screens, but it looks like this has moved to LED and Plasma. Can someone light the DPP signal??

Did some reading up on this and it turns out that in the american release version, Hartnetts character does indeed say '' I think WW2 just started ''.For the european release, they had came to realise that people might, just might, be offended by that line so it is changed to '' I think WW2 just hit us ''.

Still an almighty shit film though.

Is there a verified source for this? Cos I can't imagine the studio's or Bay would really pay attention that much. So, where exactly did you read this info of two different cuts using two seperate lines, cos I'm intrigued.

Apologies for keeping wildly off topic.

I'd be interested to hear more on this too. It's certainly not an ADR line as you can see Josh Hartnett saying it, so they wouldve had to do two different takes.

Hey Porntrooper. My TV is a 46" Samsung LED. The 3D looks great on a screen that size, so anything bigger is gonna look even better! One thing i will say is that i was tempted with a plasma until i saw a demo at the store. Plasma TVs are only really good for rooms with very little light/ sunlight. The picture looks very washed out (please DPP come and cite some technical stuff as washed out isn't a very good description and makes it sound like plasmas look bad, which isnt the case) and the blacks arent nearly as strong as LED or LCD, unless you're seemingly in a pitch black room. LED is best for long term power consumption and IMO the screen is way better than my previous model which was LCD. I'm no technical expert though and someone like DPP would be perfect to give us all a proper breakdown on the merits of each.

Yeah, I find it hard to imagine that Bay and Fox (was it Fox) would've given a crap about potentially offending Europeans when they had already offended scores of their own countrymen what with the movie's litany of historical innaccuracies.

Thread took an odd turn.

Even back then Michael Bay cranked out offensive garbage. Who da thunk it?

Hang on....I just found footage where he DOES say "just started". HERE About 6:48 in. Sounds dodgy but it's there. So there are two versions.

And if you look closely at the "just hit us" version HERE at 1:34:38 you can kinda see his mouth saying "just started".

How odd that someone seemed to give enough of a crap to change it. Fallout from the U571 debacle? Maybe.

But yeah, erm...3D, yeah....

I just think it's amazing that someone somewhere actually gave enough of a crap to say "maybe we should loop the line in case we offend the Europeans". And it's definitely Hartnett's voice in both versions.

Now all Spielberg needs to do is re-loop the Monty line from SPR and I'll be happy.

Oh, and here - CLICKY

Cool Breeze is always right ( even when hes wrong )

So back to 3D.You already know where i stand on it ( It stinks ).After watching Dredd last weekend,the film was so dark already that one of my eyes was slightly bloodshot after the show due to eye strain.Im sure glad i didnt see Prometheus in 3D!

I will say however,that i am undecided on the prospect of 3D viewing at home since iv never seen it.I may ask for a demo in some tv shop sometime soon out of curiosity.I still dont think ANY film needs 3D to be enjoyed however.I enjoyed Avatar more after watching it at home on regular 2D blu ray and thought Prometheus looked beautiful in 2D at the cinema.

LED is best for long term power consumption and IMO the screen is way better than my previous model which was LCD. I'm no technical expert though and someone like DPP would be perfect to give us all a proper breakdown on the merits of each.



Just to address and refine this point (at the risk of DPP showing up and making me look like a wally), Plasma's generally have a glass screen, hence they're susceptible to screen glare from light sources in the room (particularly sunlight), most of them have anti-glare coatings but this doesn't alleviate the problem completely. Obviously with a matte finish and no glass to speak of an LCD or LED TV doesn't have this problem, aside from some models that have a gloss screen that is. That said I even think there's the odd Plasma knocking about with a matte screen these days, but I have no idea how these perform.

As for black levels not being as good on a Plasma unless you’re in a dark room, yes and no. If black levels on a Plasma are seemingly lacking in a well lit room, it's only because of the screen glare you may or are liable to be suffering, chances are if the glare is that bad black levels will be the least of your worries, you won't be able to see bugger all anyway. Discounting the glare issue for a second however, generally speaking black levels and contrast ratios are where Plasma has always excelled in the past; it's one of their main advantages. That said LCD's have come on leaps and bounds in that area over the years, my early 2005 Samsung LCD is a nightmare in that regard, but my brother's recent Samsung LCD from last year is a testament to how much they've moved on. With LED backlighting they're supposed to have improved even further, but aside from viewing in store I've had no real hands on experience with LED TV's.

Viewing angles was always something else to consider with LCD/LED TV's but as the technology has progressed it's become less and less of an issue, just as screen burn for Plasma's is no longer a real bugbear. LCD/LED technology also consumes far less power than a Plasma, so expect to see a few pounds knocked off your electric bill also.

Personally I'm of the opinion that other than the screen glare issue mentioned above there's very little to separate the technologies to the average laymen who doesn't care about such things.

3D performance between the technologies I'm not overly familiar with so can't comment beyond what I've read, like Plasma's having better 3D veiwing angles or less cross-talk because of their higher response times etc, but I've also read opinions to the contrary as well.

No matter how good/what your opinion of 3D is, either in the cinema or at home, the biggest question I would like answered is:

WHY CAN'T THEY CRACK THE PROBLEM OF EVERYTHING BEING SO FUCKING DIM ALL THE TIME?!!!
