I managed to get in and am waiting for it to begin. Any other HTF'ers participating?

Also, I think it would be nice if some of us who have participated in the various threads over the past several months could schedule our own Home Theater Forum community screening.

Nicholas,

I'm in. Is this a text commentary only?

Great idea about the HTF screening.

I'm in for tonight's screening. The text box at the top is a little too small for my liking but this seems like a neat experiment and I love the idea of a HTF screening some time soon.

I'm watching now.
It's a great use of the BD Live tech although I expected a video feed of some sort.
It all seems so off the cuff.
I thought Nolan was going to a standard commentary and field questions every now and again.
It seems to be 100% questions.

Too bad most of them are of the cringe worthy variety.
If I see one more "Whose idea was it to..." queries, I'm going to bail from embarrassment.

Why no Batcave? How about watching the first film????

Go to "Express Yourself", then "Live Community Screenings". It should be in there, headed by c_nolan. Join that one.

To be fair, it was more about "Why wasn't it rebuilt yet?", wasn't it? It was definitely an artistic choice as to whether it was rebuilt or not, at least in the film's universe, as TDK isn't exactly a day after BB.

Shame he hasn't replied to my question about the recent mention in the UK's "The Sun". Would love to hear his response to their bullshit casting rumours.

I am waiting for someone to ask about the Eddie Murphy thing.

I'm sure someone is filtering those out.

"Who came up up with the line, "Why So Serious"?" oh brother
Ummm, a screenwriter?

There are some terrible questions getting through. Some are definitely questions I don't give a toss about, but many are ones that are just redundant - answered in Focus Points on the disc, answered in many interviews.

Damn good concept of a live chat though. I hope there's a log of it somewhere, and generally speaking, it seems to be working pretty well. I keep seeing c_nolan is dropping out occasionally, but that might be my connection, and not his (hey, I'm on the other side of the world!)

He drops every 10 minutes for me also, but gets right back on.

One of the first good questions, about having no origin for Joker.

Ahh, technical difficulties at their end. Hope everything gets back up, it's quite a fascinating idea. Anyone else got any thoughts on the whole thing so far?

Looks like there will be a transcript up later. Was on the site for the event after it started and it had a link to a transcript but obviously it wasn't active yet.

I wonder how they're screening the questions. There has to be a better question out there than "How's life on the set?".

Yup, text only as mentioned here long before I had a chance to return to the thread Posted Image


Every question I've had (legitimate, I promise!) has been overlooked so far, ranging from modifying the AR for Blu-ray (preserving the intent and composition of the image) to the deliberate exploitation of the new Batsuit's weaknesses.

I'm there as "nlmartin".

I really think we should organize an HTF screening.

Thoughts on that?

Same here. This whole chat experience has me feeling a little underwhelmed.

Check out the question about directing the first movie to have Batman turn his head!

c_nolan: "It was very exciting to finally see Batman turn his head. This was the result of years of research and millions of dollars."

Best response of the night so far.

Nicholas, did you ask that question? I didn't check out the screen name.

Here is a question that I bet doesn't get through...

Will you ever learn to direct a proper fight scene? Posted Image

Good questions Nicholas, I think he answered the aspect ratio thing. IMAX intrigued him and it was too expensive and technically challenging to shoot the entire film that way.

Please, someone ask him about the Mayor's distracting black eyeliner. I'm too embarassed to. Posted Image

"Why a gigantic penthouse?" That got through? Really? I'm out, I'll read the transcript later.
