Epic special effects. Great producer and director. Abrams said it is not connected to Cloverfield (2008) at all. If you look closely at the trailers and whatnot, there's so many hidden things there. Weird.

Read the text at the end, it tells you to go to http://www.scariestthingieversaw.com/
Can anyone figure it out?
And there's some weird pictures, such as this one:

Will wait until it comes out on dvd, then wait for someone else to rent it.
I'm going into it thinking it will be bad, mainly because everyone said Cloverfield was so damn good, when It absolutely sucked (my opinion)

Why, it's not connected to Cloverfield, :p
Think of this as like Star Trek, MI:III, and Lost, lol.

special effects remind me of a blizzard cinimatic.

Yeah, I know what you mean.

Looks awesome. I love everything J.J. Abrams has done (well, except for Mission Impossible), and having Spielberg on as producer certainly doesn't hurt (deep, deep pockets). And just like Cloverfield and Lost, the fake sites/media is always awesome to uncover.

Well, isn't MI:3 one of the only two movies he has directed? And apart from that, hasn't he only done a few episodes in some various shows?

He gets things moving and the movies he directs generally end up good. While I didn't like MI:3, it was given the highest rating in the series. His other projects, Cloverfield, Star Trek, Lost, Fringe, and Alias, have all been great successes. Although he has very limited involvement with the TV shows later on, he helps them get started with solid pilots (Lost had one of the best pilots ever), and every project he's been on has had great viral support.

So yes, he's not exactly a veteran, but he's a big name in the industry with good reason.

Plus he plays the keyboard.

Any guesses on why it's called Super 8?

8 monsters, 8 heroes, 8 days?

The website is weird, lol.

I can't exactly figure it out, if you keep saying Y, you eventually get to a point, where you suppodeslesly have to execute a new function or something.

The Super 8 was an unlicensed peripheral for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES, known in Japan as the Super Famicom) video game console designed to allow the system to run games developed for the Nintendo Entertainment System (known in Asia as the Famicom).
Super 8 mm film, also simply called Super 8, is a motion picture film format released in 1965 by Eastman Kodak as an improvement of the older 8 mm

lol, well the trailer says its about Area 51.

    Signatures can be edit in your account profile. As for the old stuffs, I'm thinking it's because Blizzard is now under Microsoft, and because of Microsoft Xbox going the way it is, it's dreadful.

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though
