Since roughly the s, Godard has been a full-bore avant-garde filmmaker, working in what practically qualifies as a different medium from the one he helped reinvent when he initially burst onto the scene. That said, this is easily my favorite Godard film in a long time—since Weekend , in fact, which was made before I was born. That ranks high among the dumbest things a smart person has ever said. Some of this is just unusually creative placement of foreground objects, which obscure the ostensible action, or just distract the eye from it. Godard does things here that, as far as I know, nobody else has ever thought of, and one effect is so singular and bizarre that I actually briefly lifted my 3-D glasses so I could figure out what the hell I was even seeing. I spent most of the excessively lengthy film two hours, 15 minutes trying to determine what this ratio achieves, apart from a general sense of constriction. That should be something to see.
BROOKLYN, New York, Tuesday, July 6, - Over the past 30 years, the use of glass- and carbon- fiber reinforced composites in aerospace and other high-performance applications has soared along with the broad industrial adoption of composite materials. Key to the strength and versatility of these hybrid, layered materials in high-performance applications is the orientation of fibers in each layer. Recent innovations in additive manufacturing 3D printing have made it possible to finetune this factor, thanks to the ability to include within the CAD file discrete printer-head orientation instructions for each layer of the component being printed, thereby optimizing strength, flexibility, and durability for specific uses of the part. These 3D-printing toolpaths a series of coordinated locations a tool will follow in CAD file instructions are therefore a valuable trade secret for the manufacturers. However, a team of researchers from NYU Tandon School of Engineering led by Nikhil Gupta , a professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering showed that these toolpaths are also easy to reproduce -- and therefore steal -- with machine learning ML tools applied to the microstructures of the part obtained by a CT scan. However, since the fiber direction is difficult to discern with the naked eye, the team used ML algorithms trained over thousands of micro CT scan images to predict the fiber orientation on any fiber-reinforced 3D-printed model. The team validated its ML algorithm results on cylinder- and square-shaped models finding less than 0.
The film centers around Master Shake , Frylock and Meatwad , better known as the Aqua Teens, as they join forces with the Plutonians and the Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past from the Future to prevent a one-eyed robot from destroying the world. The movie also brings a never-before-told origin story of the Aqua Teens. Maiellaro would also describe the film as "an action piece that leads into the origin story that unfolds in a very 'Aqua Teen' way. On April 1, , Adult Swim premiered the movie just a week before the main release; however, in honor of the block's annual April Fools' Day traditions, the film remained in a small picture-in-picture box at the bottom left corner, with no sounds. It marks the first and only time an Adult Swim series was adapted into a feature film, and is the second Cartoon Network -owned property to receive a theatrical feature film adaptation after The Powerpuff Girls Movie A sequel , entitled Death Fighter , was announced, but was ultimately scrapped in Before the main feature, a faux theatre concession stand advertisement plays. A group of anthropomorphic theater snacks, The Soda Dog Refreshment Band, sings a spoof of Let's All Go to the Lobby until they are interrupted by another snack band performed by Mastodon. They proceed to loudly sing their own bizarre theater rules before finishing on a guitar solo. The film starts properly in Egypt in a purposely indeterminable time, where Master Shake , a milkshake , Frylock , a box of french fries , and Meatwad , a ball-shaped ground meat , break free from within the Sphinx and are attacked by an oversized poodle who kills Frylock before Shake defeats it.
