Jurassic Park (1993) in 4K Blu-ray vs 35mm film

CNXToonami did a side by side comparison of Jurassic Park in 4K Blu-ray vs 35mm film. It’s a bit cliché to prefer the old to the new by default (like vinyl vs digital) but the 35mm version looks really good here in comparison. In another referenced clip in 35mm, you also get to see the CGI dinosaurs and they look more realistic in this style.

Not all films look good in 35mm and, of course, they’re not made for it either but this is an example of good quality in an older format. I’d be intrigued to see how Jurassic World: Dominion would look, although we might end up with an 8K version by then.

(Un)productivity or death?

dinos and comics is “a comic about depressed dinosaurs who find hope in each other”. I follow the Twitter account and find their comics light-hearted and amusing.

Today’s comic was particularly clever with the white dinosaur giving Rainbow T-Rex the mantras of capitalism (productivity or death), COVID (unproductivity or death), and the government (simply death).

Sounds about right.

Tumblr Thinks Everything Is Porn

Welcome to Tumblr

The problem is it seems to be flagging pretty much everything. Gita Jackson of Kotaku profiled some of the stranger subjects deemed inappropriate by Tumblr. They included:

  • Garfield
  • A vase and some plant pots
  • Dinosaurs
  • Some fruit with teeth
  • Mario
  • A roast chicken in a wall
  • A VR prototype

Maybe there needs to be another sub-section for Rule 34. Or it needs to be rewritten altogether.

Check out some of the wildest ones below. Lemme go see what they’ve flagged on my Tumblr account…
