I saw Paranormal Activity...
it's okay. Not as bad as I expected. Okay, maybe it is. But for a low budget movie (seriously, it was one normal video camera), it makes you think. I didn't really get scared by anything, just a few thrills here and there, but I think this movie (if you'd call it a movie) scares not like the normal film that just relies on gory effects. This scares you by nothing more than sounds and some few movement and slight effects, which is a more I guess thoughtful way of scaring you. It's a bit slow at first, but the end seem rushed. It's more of a scary thing like "that's freaky stuff" rather than like "disgusting, ah it's so creepy demon bloody whatever". o_O
A lot of people said the ending was really good... it kinda seemed like maybe even the worst part, haha. But that might be because I already knew about the ending, and that I know what's going to happen by my prior knowledge (Supernatural) :D

The Evolved Panda Commandant Rates 'Paranormal Activity': [6/10]

As a common, horror film it would be like a 5. But think of it more like actual paranormal activity rather than just trying to scare you like any other horror movie, and I guess it's better. Funny guy.

While I watched this movie I thought this was the scariest movie ever only because I was under the impression that everything was real. After I found out it was fictitious it no longer scares me. So if you show your friends this movie tell its all real before the movie and break the news to them after =].

Yea pretty sure a snuff film wouldn't be allowed to be displayed on the big screens...

It's not scary, until you see it at 5:30 AM after staying up playing MW2 and Halo 3 with friends, drinking Mountain Dew.
Yeah. That was funny...

Anyway, I didn't find it scary.
But, according to what I read, this was originally made in '07 ('08?) for a movie festival (as an independant film).

Not sure if it's true or not, just what I read (I think it was Wikipedia where I read it).

The movie wasn't super scary, but near the end it was pretty creepy and overall just fun to watch.

Yeah, it was just a little independent film made by some guys that were bored. In 07.
But it caught other people's eyes and so was released again.
As a low-budget movie it's not bad. Just too much hype for it.

Completly true, also the ending from the film festival was banned as it was too scary or something (makes no sense to me), so they added a whole new ending to this version and changed some other minor parts apparantly.

Well, in one of the endings, the girl goes up to the camera and slits her throat (makes more sense if you've seen the movie.).

    You need to buy a laptop that supports external GPUs for this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I'm pretty lucky to get myself an Alienware 15 with RTX 2070.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think I'm moving back up north for the summer, I got offered my job as the tournant chef back and I'm tired of struggling down here, it pays like twice as much too
  • Varine Varine:
    I think imma give four or five weeks of notice today to my boss, and see how much that backfires on me. I know he's struggling to hire anyone though, so it's like, do a couple weeks of interviews with me and then we'll have two or three weeks to train someone to take over for me. Hopefully he doesn't fucking let me go in like two weeks cuz that would really fuck me up right now
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Wouldn't it be better if you give 3 to 4 weeks of notice? So that, at least you are guaranteed for 1 more week of paycheck to hold you over?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    By the way, where are you moving to?
  • Varine Varine:
    Back to Idaho for the summer, then maybe Houston in August or so, my girlfriend or whatever we are loved it there
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm not sure yet, but my parents need some help cuz they're getting older and my mom has MS so can't do much anymore, so I'll be able to get their property fixed up so they can sell their other house. And the resort is stoked to have me back for the summer, cuz they always struggle with staff.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think it'll be alright, even if they cut me loose a bit early I do have some money and I know plenty of people that will lend me the few hundred bucks to get up there. I'm just catching up after last year still, if I have to kite some bills for a couple weeks it'll be fine.
  • Varine Varine:
    I hate my job but I do like one of my bosses, he does try really hard to get me what I need, and I want to make sure I leave with them comfortable with a new manager
  • Varine Varine:
    I like my coworkers for the most part too as much as I bitch about them, they just aren't reliable. As kids tend to be, I was a shithead at 19 and 20 too I'm sure, so
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Good luck on getting things going.
  • Varine Varine:
    Eh, it'll be fine, I got it mostly planned out already. Roommates know, boss will know in about an hour when I go to work, I'll have a plane booked once we decide my last day, and I have a place to stay up there lined up for two or three months
  • Varine Varine:
    That all came together surprisingly easily
  • Varine Varine:
    I think I'm going to give 4 weeks, so that'll give me 2 more full checks probably, and then one more coming after I leave.
    +1
  • Varine Varine:
    All that shit came together really well suprisingly. My boss was upset cuz I am really good at my job suprisingly, but he's stoked that he got 4 weeks, plus one or two if he needs it, my flight's book in mid June, but I start my new job almost immediately so it'll be nice to have some time to chill and pack and get my rooms cleaned out. He actually gave me a dollar raise right after I gave notice to thank me for not being short or just leaving and making sure I can help interview and train someone to replace me. He is really cool, his food truck has just been a nightmare to run. I get my vaccine next week finally, allegedly Idaho will let me have my license back when I get there, and I have all my bills up to date so it should be an easy move this time around.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is anyone else getting server timeouts in the chat? I think it's on my end, my wifi adapter has been acting up recently
  • Varine Varine:
    100% my end, idk what it is though.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Just woke up. No idea.
  • jonas jonas:
    sounds great :) have fun in Idaho
  • The Helper The Helper:
    freaking Idaho
  • Varine Varine:
    Yeah it sucks up there, but it'll be a bit easier for the summer probably.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    When you get to Houston you will have your pick there is a huge shortage of good people to work in your field here. They are hiring everywhere and Texas is pretty much fully open.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    for anyone else following this yes I am in Houston so Varine and I will RL meet gotta love it! Looking forward to it!
  • jonas jonas:
    awesome
