Video Blog: Reader Questions Answered #1

by     Posted 4 years, 130 days ago

As you know by now, I regularly record video blogs with Peter from Slashfilm. This past weekend, we found ourselves at the New Orleans airport hours before our flight home, and decided it would be a perfect time to record a video blog.

However, we didn’t have a topic in mind, so we reached out to our twitter followers and asked for some ideas. After just a few submissions, Peter and I realized we would love to talk about a variety of these submitted topics, and changed the idea to a reader q & a. We told everyone that we’d answer every question submitted, however we were only able to cram 25 or 30 questions in before we had to board the plane. We even answered questions about Prop 8 and eating competitions. That’s enough, right?

Sadly, that video blog will never ever be seen by the public as Peter recorded it on his new iPhone 4 and somehow it failed to record the audio. As you might expect, it was very frustrating. But we moved on. So during our layover in Denver we decided to rerecord the Q&A using some of the same questions and we also mixed in a few new ones. Hit the jump to check it out and please leave your questions for potential future video blog Q&A’s in the comment section.

    Nice Video Blog.

    I agree about CONTACT, really underrated.

    I also think that movie theatres will never die out. People like to be entertained and going out to the movies is something to do. Plain and simple.

    My question is: What's the movie you've seen the most? It might not be your favorite but you've seen it the most.

    AWesome Q&A

    My question: Hollywood seems to be pumping out remakes, sequels, and prequels, and reboots like there is no tomorrow. Do you think this craze will eventually subside and we will begin to see more original films again, or are we doomed to have to sift through the unoriginal to find something truly original as far as mainstream hollywood goes.

    Question: Please to explain why there are so many bald/facial-haired and thin/scraggly duos in geek culture? Works cited: Collider/Slashfilm, Mythbusters, Penny Arcade, the Matrix dudes, etc.

    dear Collider, could you remove that google search on top? everytime I visit your site, it asks me if I wanna translate it (see, I'm from a spanish speaking country) — and it won't go away — no matter how many times I 'deactivate' it..

  • http://www.collider.com/ Steve 'Frosty' Weintraub

    I'm confused. We have a search area and we also added google translate for the people in other countries that want to read collider. But it shouldn't impact you reading the site. It's just there like any part of the website.

    oh, it doesn't 'impact' — it just bothers to see that bar slide down everytime I check the site — that's all ;·)
