Well  ... since eveyone else has gone to bed, I can't get one of the color sighted people here to tell me if this is red, but she does have a bow:

Looks more brown with just a hint of coppery-red, but dang, she still looks hot!

Well, it's now 2018, and it sounded like one of Kim's nukes just went off outside... It's like 1 degree here... Those folks are nuts.  :explode: I'm celebrating inside!

The truck said that it was 14° when we got back in.  I think you're smart to wait.  My son has to work tomorrow and I have to return to work the next day, so this was it.

The movie had the best effects yet, at least in my judgment.  I liked the original for the gritty feel.  This is leagues ahead of that.  I'll withhold evaluating the plot until it's more settled in my old head.  It's no longer 1977 and the world is quite a different place.  (I know, profound, right?)  Some characters seemed more complex and some substantially thinner.  I could not judge if that was the acting, the editing or the script without more thought.

Know what you mean, they are trying desperately to keep their films at or under 2 hours in length now.  Why, I don't know.  Avatar is 4 hours and still the top grossing film of all time.   To do that they are cramming SO MUCH into so little time it gets bewildering!   Novarian is a bit that way, though you can follow the plot as you go, it has over 2,700 special effects.  Means lots of them share the same screen time space!   It is also saying that it is probable every second of the two hours has special digital effects in it.  Astounding to think about.   I feel they should keep everything in these movies, just stretch it out a little bit so our minds can digest it a little easier!  LOL!  I can't wait to see Last Jedi, will buy it unseen!   Same with Jumangi 2 !!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR Sir Knight and Family!    :Hi5: :crazysmile: :happydance: :yippee: :smile: :thumb_up: :0704:

I just got up about 2:20 am.  I think the fireworks (totally illegal up here on the caprock, severe dry land fire hazard!) and resulting sirens started the long slow process of waking this tired old goofus up.  Yup.  Its so cold (7°F) and I was so cozy!  But I'm UP.  And it is now 3:32 am, expecting to see about 5°F with a high around noon at 20°F.   This is gonna be a cold week man.   If I feel I've had too much coffee I will be sipping hot water!  LOL!

Are we talking about Tauriel, a completely film added character?  Played by a brunette actress?

erm the term Bailey is less known, and played by the same person in a very different Steely Reality movie!
I like her too!   I have from the first time I saw her on one of those real dumb "reality" TV shows.  WHY are we whispering anyway?
That lady has Got a WALK man!  Whew!

What do you mean "completely film added character" ?  I get the brunette  actress bit, totally  :haremdance:


I note that nobody wants to mention a working Actor/Actress' name.  Evangeline Lilly or Mary Crosby just two such examples.

Yesss I KNOW whom you are talking about.   She has played a couple of really wonderful characters (only SUPPORTING roles dammit!) and I do enjoy seeing her work.   She also appeared on a couple of nite time talk shows like that Craig Ferguson's show. That was fun.   It was right after she gave birth to her son.  Wow what a WALK!  And the bunns to hold those legs ON buddy! HA!

That be the one!  :hubbahubba: Love watching her run and jump and jiggle...oops, I need to stop that!

WHAT for !?!!!!??  THAT shows you are actually HUMAN (oops!)!!!!!    And they DID include those scenes just to pique our interests, now didn't they?   Like Kari Byron's very first episode!  The Silver BUM!  Woooooooo!   Gorgeous thang!  :crazysmile: :hubbahubba: :yippee:

Yep - that's the one... Completely not in the books, but I worship at Peter Jackson's altar for finding her and putting her in there. Woof, woof!

Ahhhhh OK I see now!   Took me a while, but I'm with y'all now.   I am with you in gratitude to Jackson for putting her in the films, even if he had to create the character just for her!   I think he is as fascinated with her as we are Rod, and he just happens to have that kind of ability and used it to PUT her in his films!  Yaaaay!

LOL....Got two here.....

I gave up watching the New Years Specials they have on.   I've been watching the "11 Days of Mythbusters" Marathon


Me too!   From the beginning.  I have NO idea how many or which ones I have slept through and missed doing errands.
But I DO remember learning that "Perfect Silver Butt" is actually Kari Byron on her very first episode appearance.   That was her job, to pose for a butt scan.  Ha!  It was for the Myth of the woman getting vacuum stuck on an airliner toiled seat till it landed.  I think that whole episode was made for FUN.  Happy New Year TL!

Actually, I don't..... I've got characters that look like Galadriel (Cate Blanchett), Daenerys (Emilia Clarke), Padme Amidala (Natalie Portman), and of course 3 or 4 Angelina look-alikes... (all from RR marketplace - I didn't morph them myself..LOL). I'll see if I can snatch a few photos of Evangeline Lilly and see what I can do in Blacksmith and FaceGen. She's gonna have to stand in line, though. I still need to do - uh I mean morph - Daisy Ridley (Rey) and Felicity Jones (Jyn Erso). My list grows long....  :OMFG:

If you follow my T.N.A. story, one of the villains - Edmund Snowzem - was morphed by me, using Edward Snowden as the model.  :tearlaugh: I've really gotta get back into doing more of that - it's fun!

Hey I LOVE Felicity Jones!   Jhen Urso was a good character too.   I liked the movie where she was wearing the black babydoll dress.  And very skimpy whites under!  You'd see a bright flash every step, and she has great legs too!
There ARE some E.L. lookalikes still around.  I am sure one of the best is still in RMP!  I have it in here somewhere.  grrr!

It is 5:30 am on New Years Day.  I slept from about 5pm to 2am as usual, messing up any celebrating. I see also I have missed out on a conversation I would love to have caught LIVE!  HA!  Guess that means I am the only live one up and at em on New Year DAY.  Oh well, I could do worse I s'pose!  LOL!

Happy New Year to you ALL folks!   :yippee:

Good MORNING Sir Knight!  It is a whopping sweltering (to Yeti maybe!) 2°F and ought to hover there a bit, then begin warming with daylight.  But I would not count on it.   I've just finished my first hot tottie for the year, and it actually helped me feel a bit warmer.  Already had breakfast, meds, said hi to the cats, made my bed since I won't be getting back in it for a while yet.  And have decided I don't need to get all bundled up and go anywhere today. HA!   
Surely you won't have to get out and work today?  Hope not!   The wind whisked any snow we had off to the South somewhere.  Hope they enjoy it.

Now, pertaining to the discussion a bit ago, there are free morphs of the individual asked to play a certain Woodland Elf (while she was pregnant no less!) floating around.  And they look pretty good likenesses too.  I also have one bookmarked and one bought.

Here's a link to the most realistic headmorph I've seen yet.   Arriah81's.
http://www.sharecg.com/v/25277/browse/11/Poser/Catherine-morph-POSER

that's it.  No texture, no body, no clothes.  I think its a good one.
