I know nothing about web page design, so I ask: Is there a reason NOT to put everything on one page?

In print media, it would make sense not to have one page 4 feet long, but what is the reason for having to turn virtual pages? It's much easier to scroll than to click and wait for pages to load.

Well, if you don't have a lot of memory, a browser will kinda flip out at a page full of big images. So splitting the photoshop entries across pages actually serves a purpose, unlike articles. What, you've never pointed your browser at a Fark photoshop page and watched it crawl?

What is that one that is the dunebuggy with lasers? I remember as a kid that movie poster was on the back of every comic book for MONTHS

Something "force". It's a Chuck Norris film, so googling him will probably get you some answers. And a roundhouse kick in the face.

someone remind me... what happened at the library in Ghostbusters??

Megaforce
with Barry Bostwick.

Yep, that Barry Bostwick.

Dammit, all those '80s films bleed together in my head. Right, not Chuck Norris.

Thank you for the explanation. Yeah, I have had that happen in PS threads. I think I would still rather have it on one page, though.

THAT scene was right out of some messed up Japanese comic book. In retrospect, there should be tentacles.

I'd place the Large Marge scene from Pee Wee Herman over that one. In a movie called Ghostbusters, you expect something that to happen. With Pee Wee Herman, there was not one kid out of a thousand who expected to be hit with...

Starship Troopers was the greatest movie ever made... until I turned 15 and realized it was a terrible farce. HOWEVER, Dina Meyer still gets naked twice, and THAT is deserving of piles of Oscars.

//The book was better, even though Dizzy Flores is a guy.
///Now where's that VHS?

The director was trying to both make a satire of jingoistic propaganda and an action movie at the same time, and they didn't mix well.

Seriously - when I was a kid I thought this was quite possibly the coolest thing ever. I seriously wanted to get involved with that group of commandoes as I was convinced they actually existed.

If I could've gotten a hold of one of those outfits, I totally would've worn it to my 4th grade class.

QFT all around. Would have taken Dina as Dizzy over Denise as Carmen the Slutbucket.

I agree! That movie was AWESOME.

Remember the stealth technology in the dune buggies? They put a hat on it and when they picked it up the paint had turned black where the hat had been. That = stealth?

The Godfather poster was full of win.

I remember being a kid thinking "Christ.. wont this ever end? Some kids mom got shot and now they are talking for the next 4 hours"

Even more true since I was in an Italian household where if that movie came on TV, the whole farking house would stop what they were doing to watch it.

As for Dr. Strangelove, half of the adults I know who have watched at with me didnt get it.

...probably same people who hate The Big Lebowski

The director did the moral equivalent of grinding up school children into hamburger, and then serving them to school children as hamburgers when he made that movie, kept the same name, etc.

I remember a thanksgiving as a child where my mom and here friends watched Strange Love and an old Sean Connery movie where he was a monk investigating some murders. Rose was in the name, man I didn't understand either movie but boy were they fun.
 
2008-05-05 10:17:37 AM
The story is broken in to 10 pages not to save bandwidth or memory but to increase ad impressions (which equals more $$)

The name of the Rose? WOW sounds painful, we watched that in Western Civ in High School... It sucked (I think, was probably asleep?)

In that vein, anyone else see Iron Man?

I could not get past Jeff Bridges as what's-his-face. Every time he talked all I could think of was, "It really pulled the room together, man." Someone needs to video edit that movie and replace all of his whiskey drinks with white russians.

The Total Recall poster was spot-on.

Cracked up at "Time for a Nap" ("Sense & Sensibility"). I LOVE that movie... but, no, not if I had seen it at the age of 10.

(Odd to think that it's much more engaging and exciting than Ang Lee's snoozefest "Hulk" film.)

Dang! SA is filtered here...

Still, Large Marge, the librarian ghost, and the Grim Reaper from the 1972 version of A Christmas Carol freaked me the hell out.

Megaforce came out about the same time I got my first real computer. That is when I started writing software. I remember that movie well because I was so hyped up on programming and that movie kicked ass.

Pan's Labyrinth would have gave me nightmares if I was a kid.

Donnie Darko is the only movie to give me nightmares as an adult, I'm surprised it's not on the list.
 
2008-05-05 10:29:19 AM
The Monster Squad one was right on the money. That's pretty much the only thing I still remember about that movie.
