According to wiki and google, they used the USS Halsey and USS Dewey for the Nathan James and also filmed aboard USS Iowa (most likely for the Ruskie ship). For interiors there is recreations of the interiors of the boats the pilot was filmed in but enlarged to handle the cast and crew.

Top Gear trio Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May have signed to present a new car show on the Amazon Prime streaming service in one of the biggest coups in TV history.

The programme will air for the first time next year and be produced by former Top Gear executive Andy Wilman, an old school friend of Clarkson’s who is credited with revamping the format and turning it into the world’s most successful factual TV show.

The deal ends months of speculation about the future of the most bankable star on British TV following Clarkson’s spectacular departure from the BBC after 27 years.

BBC director general Tony Hall refused to renew the 55 year old’s contract after a notorious “fracas” at a Yorkshire hotel in March when Top Gear's frontman hit producer Oisin Tymon during a row about catering arrangements.

I'm very excited to announce that Hammond, May and I have signed a deal with .@AmazonVideo

— Jeremy Clarkson (@JeremyClarkson) July 30, 2015

Co-presenters Hammond and May also bowed out saying that working with Clarkson’s replacement - later revealed to be Radio 2 DJ Chris Evans - was “a non-starter.”

The new Amazon show will not feature Top Gear’s mysterious driver The Stig. Jeremy Clarkson, who previously spoke of his sadness and deep regret at leaving the BBC said today: “I feel like I’ve climbed out of a bi-plane and into a spaceship.

  The Praça da Figueira or" Square of the Fig Tree" in Lisbon, Portugal is a bustling place filled with shops, hotels, and cafes. But tucked near one of its corners is a very special shop that is easy to miss: Hospital de Bonecas, also known as the Dolls Hospital.

Established in 1830, the Hospital de Bonecas has been fixing broken, dirty, and disheveled dolls for 185 years. It's far from the only hospital of its kind—there are hundreds of doll hospitals around the world—but it's definitely one of the oldest. It seems that even in an age of disposable and mass produced merchandise, people still have special relationships with their dolls. How can you throw away a friend, after all? And the Hospital de Bonecas clientale is primarily adults. Many older customers in their 50s and 60s come to have a beloved doll from their childhood give a new life.

At another well-known doll hospitals, "un’ospedale delle bambole" in Rome, Federico Squatrito and his mother Gelsomina sit in a minuscule workspace and help nurse ailing dolls back to health. In Sydney, Australia the "Original Doll Hospital" was started back in 1913 and says it has has healed over two million dolls.

Many famous doll companies from American Girl dolls to Madame Alexander dolls have specialized doll hospitals. In Cleveland, Georgia Babyland General goes one step further. Both a store and museum of the famous 1980s Cabbage Patch Doll, it has doll delivery unit complete with nurses and doctors in full scrubs. During a "delivery" it is announced that the mother cabbage is fully dilated but will need "10 CC's of imagicillin, stat!" to deliver the new Cabbage Patch baby.

However Babyland General, has nothing on the fast growing doll movement of "Reborning." In this process a standard vinyl doll is painted, sculpted, and transformed to look as much like a real human baby as possible, often in honor of a child who died. Also known as "unliving dolls," the customers are almost all adults who are willing to pay many of thousands of dollars for an incredibly lifelike human replica.

The dolls are so realistic there have been a number of incidents where the police have smashed windows to rescue a Reborn doll from cars in order to rush them to the hospital only to find they were a doll. (Of course, the police could have taken the Reborn doll to a hospital, just not the one they were thinking of.)

I was 5 years old when I was first exposed to Bruce Campbell in Evil Dead 2, seeing him in Congo later that year and then Tornado in '96. Then unknowingly seeing him in Escape from L.A. when I watched it with my grandparents. Then I saw Army of Darkness shortly after I moved back to Kentucky.

Been a fan since I was a young'un.

The Evil Dead 2 was fantastic. Saw it in the theaters in 1987 after enjoying the Evil Dead (1981) in a video tape rental. It was a close remake of that prequel, but a really good one.

I ain't saying it was the greatest movie ever, because Deadpool and Star Wars 7 haven't came out yet, but so far it was the best and most enjoyable movie ever.

It was fun. It was action packed. Oh, what a movie... what a lovely movie! It respected the franchise while doing its own shit.

>> No. 32856 ID: f2c4ed
It's the only movie I've ever gone "ehh, it's probably the extra three bucks for a 3D ticket" and then gone back a week later to watch it again in 3D. So by now I've spent nearly $30 to watch this movie, and had it not left theatres the day before, I'd have taken a buddy to see it last Thursday.

It's a 2-hour car wreck, with a subtle underlying anti-Islam message, mixed in with a note of sympathy for people who are pumped full of a message and sent off to kill for the cynical fuckheads who indoctrinate them for their own gain.

It's probably the best new movie I've seen since Avengers, and I definitely must own whatever DVD option gives me the most special features.

Also, now I randomly say things like "V8!" when I start up my truck, or call things "Shiny and chrome". The next chance I have to do something stupid, I'll probably shout "WITNESS!".

I only found out about this due to an article about a 24-year-old black woman shoving over an old lady in Chinatown and killing her. The author went out of their way to mention that the altercation happened near where the film was being shot, and to finish the piece by stating when the film would be coming out.

I'm not going to say I hate this movie before it comes out but I certainly ain't excited for it.

The dude making it is a fucking hack for one. Paul Feig's entire thing is to take a male dominated movie and Rule 63 it and shove Melissa McCarthy's fatass in it. Even has the secretary played by Thor to fully make this a gender swapped version. Can't wait until we get Stay Puft Marshmellow Woman and Slimer with tits (and I'm sure somebody will fap to that).

I hate reboots. Their are the occasional good one, Dredd if you can consider it a reboot, but most suck.

I hate Melissa McCarthy. She is a raunchy unfunny cunt. She I think tries to be the female version of John Candy but fails hard.

Half the cast is too pretty. The Ghostbusters were a bunch of normal guys, not really attractive or handsome. Kristen Wiig and the blond chick are way too cute to play a Ghostbuster. I will say the blond chick is really fucking cute though.

I kinda dig the jumpsuits and boots and the car. I however hate the fucking stripes. I understand the reason for them, high visibility strips to work safer, but they just look ugly.

I really don't have high hopes for this movie. I ain't saying that getting ancient Bill Murray, insane Dan Ackroyd, a barely aged Ernie Hudson, and the corpse of Harold Ramis together to make a movie would be better then this shit but it honestly wouldn't surprise me.

I think the boots look pretty dumb with that front cover really, like some kinda raver-goth thing with the striping. Way too stiff and too high, not really suited to terrain negotiation in a damaged urban environment, they look more like a douchy version of parade jackboots.

The hi-vis orange on the uniforms themselves makes a damned lot of sense though when you're throwing around particle beams and otherwise wearing neutral gray which blends in with fucking everything, very safety conscious.

Now someone get these girls to put some fucking buckets on before they end up with a cracked skull from being pushed down the stairs by a ghost or something.

The outfits look the same. The car looks the same. Since its a reboot, the plot will be mostly the same.

The only differences are that it will have vaginas instead of penises, and won't be funny.

They probably won't even have the balls for an obvious bukkake joke.

  So I was bored and started watching this on netflix.

It is very very good.

However, if gay people being gay piss you off I would suggest not watching it since two of the characters are gay.

Essentially 8 people around the world are linked together and can basically hop into the bodies of others or converse with em n shit. Hard to tldr it really. Done by the wachowskies.

The two Matrix sequels were shit. The Matrix was good but retroactively bad (kinda like the opposite of the Star Wars prequels for me) though I won't actually call it a bad movie just because its sequels made its flaws all too evident.

The Invasion was assy as all hell despite having Nicole Kidman's hot ass and Daniel Craigs equally hot ass (or so I'm told).

Speed Racer was crap. Colorful crap but crap. Though I will say this might be the fault of the source material. Even Christina Ricci's hot ass couldn't save that movie.

Cloud Atlas was high concept sci-fi that was kinda okay. I personally did not enjoy it but ain't going to call it bad, just meh. Plus it had Tom Hanks and I really can't think of an actually bad movie he's been in despite his lack of hot ass.

I haven't watched Jupiter Ascending but it sounds like shit from all the reviews. The plot synopsis makes its sounds like a higher budget version of the old Sci-fi Channel fodder B movie Lazerhawk starring but not really Mark Hamill.

The only good movies they made were The Matrix (and maybe the Animatrix but last time I watched it it didn't hold up really but like The Matrix that might just be because of the shit later movies pulling it down), V for Vendetta, and maybe Cloud Atlas.

Not quite the level of fail that M. Night Shyguysmelonfuck fell to but still pretty bad.

The Star Wars prequels, Episode 3 in particular, were okay bordering on good. They certainly weren't what everyone was expecting but then there was no way they were going to live up to expectations or the fan fics people spent 20 years getting in their heads about the rise of the Empire. Its like what Robert Zemeckis said about his own sequels "When you make a film that no one knows about, its your baby. When you make a sequel, everyone has an opinion, and you can't please all of them."

Most of the people who think they are bad are fatty nerds who have this nostalgia golden cow view of the OT as being this perfect sacred movies or just whores who jump on the "Prequels suck" bandwagon because people can't form their own opinions.

I'm sorry to say despite being a massive fan of the original trilogy they weren't perfect either. Some spots were downright boring, the characters weren't written as clever as people think, and Episode 6 was worse then Episode 1 and 2 with its only real redeeming qualities the battle porn, Vader's bullshit, Palpy hamming it up, and Boba Fett going down like the bitch he is.

People who grew up with the Prequels, people who watched them like people in my generation did with the OT, don't have a problem with them and at times think the OT is shit. People who aren't such fat ass nerds who can't handle change and can't just enjoy themselves like yourself enjoy the prequels.

People like myself who have read through the old EU know what really bad Star Wars is can honestly say the Prequels are goddamn masterpieces compared to shit that writer like Karen Traviss, Kevin J Anderson, and Vonda McIntyre shit out with the Star Wars name on it. Go read Legacy of the Force, Crystal Star, any fucking thing with Karen Traviss's name on it, The Jedi Prince Series, Planet of Twilight, Darksaber, or watch the Ewoks cartoon and then come tell me about something being bad.

I know I'm going into dickish territory and I do apologize in advance because normally I like and respect you, but seriously go fuck yourself with that tired ass Prequel bashing. It gets fucking old after awhile.

It's not that they're gay that bothers me, it's that I didn't like how they were introduced. How a writer introduces a character, and what that first couple scene portrays them as (what sort of character traits are shown, etc) says a lot, and the first meeting we had with the lesbians was them being naked lesbians.

I'm of the opinion that just like violence, sex in a film can enhance the story (Watchmen) or cheapen it (Game of Thrones), and it comes down to the writing. Game of Thrones has a fantastic storyline, but there's just gotta be that fan service moment where so-and-so (and five nameless hookers) are naked, and this show felt similarly cheap.

There just wasn't much art to it, even though the opening had me very interested in the show. I wanted to know more about the DJ chick, and the cop seemed like he could be interesting, but the two lesbians were already boring, because they felt like a writing hack.

Like >>32914 eloquently stated "I like tits but if I want to see tits I'll watch a porno."

(or in my case, I'm about to pop in the movie Sin City, because I haven't watched it in years, and it's awesome. It's got tits, of course, but they're not a puerile addition to the script that don't really fit in to the flow of the story.)

>>32914
Full frontal and a sex toy made it "way past R" and more purely pornographic. Wondering if I'm supposed to pull my dick out is a distraction from the story, and unlike the other characters, where a sex scene could be the culmination or high point of a story arc, having it right in the first episode for the two lesbians made it feel very "inserted because we want to push tits into every episode."

>2 and 3 weren't as good on their own as the first movie was on its own, but as a trilogy it's more cohesive and intelligent than most trilogies ever dream of being

There was alot of bloat in the movies, the two movies could have been compressed into one movie without losing any story and being stronger for it. I know the same thing could be said about the first two Prequel movies and I acknowledge I give them less shit because I enjoy them more though. But still, Reloaded was almost pure filler. It only served to set up Revolutions. Its the same problem more recent "Part 1" movies like with Harry Potter or Twiright suffer from, they are only there to pad out the series.

And the Architect was bad. He of course failed the movie adage of "show don't tell" with his wall of text speech. Just some dude who spouted alot of convoluted nonsense that added nothing to the plot and story but added plenty to the confusion and mess that was in the world they had created. The whole "humans are batteries" thing from the first movie was dumb, no doubt, but its easy to overlook it (and one can assume the humans are mistaken, the human farms may actually have other purpose such as processing power or just their version of a zoo, ideas that aren't much better then batteries but are still slightly better).

The later movies continue the battery theme but add on more shit like earlier Matrixes, controls and so much effort expended to keep the wool over the eyes of the humans. Effort that is apparently unneeded considering the Architect says they can live without the humans, whats the points of expending ungodly amount of time, effort, and power on creating the Matrix? Revenge? A zoo? A vacation spot for wealthy 1st world machines? None really make much sense for them to build the Matrix and keep rebuilding it.

They had created the Matrix 6 times and all had been destroyed. Things like the One and Zion were put into place as outlets to try correct a glitch pretty much. The agents hunting human's who are awaking and all that is kinda pointless considering they were wanting people to wake up and leave the Matrix to continue the cycle. Were the agents even aware of the masquerade? Smith didn't seem to be.

The Zion shit was terrible in every way, it was bland and not compelling at from the setting to the characters. Plus the defense was probably the dumbest thing ever. Completely unarmored mechs with machine guns against flying squid bots who soak up gun fire and only attack by slashing people to death or stabbing them.

>I think the latter movies got sidetracked by full-CGI battles between Smith and Neo that haven't aged well at a all
