When the mind melter slips through a CS platoon in the night, apparently taking over minds and being invisible by making minds blind to its presence.

Then you see the CS troops firing on their own kind latter...and you just think 'Oh, mind controlled, meh'.

But then latter you see some of the platoon just walked away, weapons dropped to the floor.

And then the movie continues on from the perspective of one of them, who is struggling with the sense his own mind has been contaminated, and yet the idea that Prosek is simply waging a campaign of fear wont leave his mind, not for some outside power forcing it there, but for it making horrible sense...the only thing he'd been forced to do, was consider...

The end of the moving climaxes with him facing the mind melter again...probably on top of a erupting volcano (yellowstone, prolly)

That's why it is called "the present".
After the climactic battle against the CS is won and the heroes are doing their victory dance, cut scene to Emperor Prosek in his war room with all his generals entering into a brilliant monmologue of how the war is not over yet and humankind shall overcome any and all obstacles in its path despite any setbacks they must endure. Just as the speech seems to be reaching a climax, a blaster pistol goes of with a brilliant flash of light, leaving Emperor Prosek lying on the floor with a smoking hole in his chest and Joseph II standing over his body with a smoking gun and a black expression. Close up to Joe's face as he speaks: "Alright gentlemen... here's the new plan...". Fade to black, roll credits.

I loved the whole setup at the begining of the movie, where Erin Tarn's ancestor was actually in one of the Glitter Boy's who fired the fateful first shot, during the time before rifts, that was the trigger for all things to come.

Beeing an fx fan, I was drooling through the entire sequence of events, from the first nuke explosions, to the giant tsunami scenes, to the leylines ripping around the earth like really fast giant zippers. The planetary view was fantastic.

However, I was absolutely dumbstruck at how the first rift that opened actually looked more like two ginormous drops of water, blended together, one pointing up, the other down, surrounded by crackling mystical energy; and as the camera panned sideways keeping focus on it, the 'other world' was visually warped as if looking at it through a crystal ball. I always pictured those tears in space and time to be two dimensional. (I guess it wouldn't be a tear in space then, would it!) Then of course, the Xiticix swarm came through. Awesome!

:love: :ok: :-D :D

Comment: Mondos non cogitarus, Consilium!
The scene near the end, in the CS Chi-Town throne room, with Prosek Sr. partially hidden in shadow; a soft sigh leaves his lips. There's a quick pan to just over his shoulder, looking down to the floor where there is now a slightly smoldering burn-spot on the carpet & a few bits of CS armor.
Back to Prosek's hidden face. Someone in black CS armor steps up to his right side, but we don't see his face.
Prosek Sr.: "Do not fail me, my son."
Prosek Jr.: "As you command, my Emperor."
Cut to black. Roll credits.

I loved the scene where the main hero, flying in his Triax Predator, had a huge dogfight with a trio of Coalition SAMAS's over the ruins of old Denver. All that dodging and weaving through old buildings as railgun rounds trace through the sky... it was awesome! And the fight was like gun fu meets air combat!

Comment: At long last....I am FINALLY free of my wonderful addiction to the online Flash game "Bloons."
Well, mostly.....
There was this one scene in the movie, where a single Triax X-5000 Devastator, one of the last surviving pieces of NGR tech on the field, had each and every one of its secondary weapons and missiles blazing away and flying off, demolishing massive Gargoyles with relative ease.

Suddenly, from off-screen (many of us in the theater jumped in our seats a little), a barrage of missiles strikes the massive mecha from behind.

Staggering it slightly.


In a supreme show of arrogance and confidence, the Devastator turns around, slowly, not even bothering to try and shield itself or show that it has anything at all to worry about.....


...as its Main Gun flips over its back and onto its shoulder, targets the missile batteries, and lets loose with a mighty blast (in the theater, the noise of the energy beam was at least as loud as the Seismic Bombs were in "Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones" and the Fell Beasts in "Lord of the Rings: Return of the King;" it was awesome to hear in Dolby™).

After a protracted lazing which takes two seconds and which turns everything on the screen into black-and-white shadows as if a Nuke had just gone off, the Devastator turns off its Main Gun, and it flips back into place on its back. It then casually turns back around and continues on its way.

There are no further attacks against it. :twisted:

Comment: caressing the downfall..outstretched arms on your knees crawl. filthy and feeling low, dancing in the undertow...
when the 'slinger carried his mojave lover, a spirit warrior who'd been bitten by a vampire, deep into the sacred pyramid of Atlantia, rumored to be able to cure vampirism, while the rest of the party went on looking for the lost atlantean oracle.
As wild vampires began flooding into the pyramid, he lowered her into the curative sarcophagus, loaded his golden age pistols with silver bullets and fought them off as long as he could.
Exhausted with but a single bullet left and his back to her holy chamber, he put his pistol to his head, unable to bear the thought of joining her in undeath.
As the wild vampires swarm around him, seconds before he pulls the trigger, she flings the top of the sarcophagus off and it sails over the 'slingers head and lands in front of him, squishing afew vamps and slowing their approach.
She rises into the air, hovering behind him.(she chose air powers :wink: ) He turns, his face bathed in the light of her purification. She looks down at him, smiling.
"C'mon," he says, bolting for the passage taken by the rest of the party, heading deeper into the pyramid. She zips past him, still hovering just off the ground. He turns back at the entrance to the passage and uses his last silver bullet to blow one of their heads off.
"Mother******." (all pg-13 movies are allowed one F bomb and still keep their precious pg-13 rating)
i was the only one in the theater who jumped out of my seat and screamed "**** yeah!!!"

i know i know, i'll vomit if the Rifts movie is based on anything vampiric. id be willing to make a sacrifice if it made the movie successful enough to warrant more being made. only problem i see at that point is the vamp-groupies will expect every movie henceforth to be based on vampires, not understanding they are just one minor menace in this world.

That's why it is called "the present".
A small group consisting of a 'Slinger, a Preacher and a Crazy wandering through a desert night, apparantly lost as they come across a blasted sign by the road.

Crazy: Where the heck are we, anyway?

Preacher: Sign here says Arizona.

Slinger: Arizona? Hmm... Apaches...

Preacher: <nods>... Vampires...

Crazy: Cool... Vampire Apaches... <giggles and starts jogging along>

Preacher and Slinger both look at the Crazy, then each other as they both suppress a shudder and keep on trekking.

Comment: Never underestimate a player who likes options.
Can't forget this scene:

*scruffy-looking man shuffles along small town's dirt street, his tattered clothing still retaining bits of color here and there under layers of road dust and dirt, his tired eyes surveying the seemingly empty town as he rubs at his week-old facial hair growth. suddenly a flurry of motion as three grubby-looking juicers and a beat-up-looking borg leap out from behind nearby buildings and close on the man, weapons ready. the man moves so fast he seems to flow like water as he lands devastating blows on all three juicers, knocking them off their feet and back multiple yards. he then turns to the borg just in time to take a full-on blast from its particle beam arm weapon. when the flash clears, the scruffy-looking man gets up slowly, turns to the borg, and the view cuts to the borg's cyber eyes as it tries to track the man's movements while he dents and dings the borg with every blurred punch, eventually crunching a hole in its chestplate before kicking it backwards through a water trough."

Injured Juicer on the ground: "Take what... you want... just don't... kill us..."

Scruffy-looking man, shaking his head in disgust before looking wistful: "I don't kill. I'm still a hero."

Oh yeah, that scene gave me chills. Can't wait to see more of the anonymous "hero" from beyond the Rift.

Comment: Dear life, when i said "can my life get any worse" it was a rhetorical question not a challenge
The intro of course. All we see is dense foilage and a forest, a gentle breeze moves the plants slightly, its night and the music is soft, gradually building. Besides the woodland is a clearing and in the clearing is a small camp of refugees, from all different walks of life. Human and inhuman in appearance, they are jovial, talkative and numerous. Equipped with a varying assortment of equipment, from the high tech to the clearly magical to the mundane. The music begins to rise slightly, and the camera cuts to a HUD view of the group. It is a thermal imaging view and a computer scanner begins to allocate targets in order of priority. Cuts back to the group, the music rising in crescendo, the refugees seemingly getting louder/laughing. And then suddenly several members of the group stand very quickly to attention, a slight pause and then they duck behind cover/jump to the ground. A split second later, numerous deadly streaks of silent laser fire shoot forth from the woodland into the group. Bodies explode in blood, while others cry out in pain. A moment of confusion before the refugees react. Half begin to scream and run away from the shooting fire, the other half go to grab weapons/find cover. And then emerging from the woodlands we see various figures in heavy deadboy armour charging forward, vibro claws extended.

When Nxla and the Lord of the Deep grappled with each other against a backdrop of their combined followers fighting a losing battle against the Splugorth and their minions, and if you look closely enough at the horizon, you can see the deaths head transports bolting out of there as the Coalition go back home to have a lie down.

My favorite scene was when the god Zeus appeared in Lemuria and warned them (and the Coalition spy) that the Splugorth were mystically within range. When the Lemurians teleported away they appeared in Antarctica!I never really understood what Zeus had in mind till they met up with the hot looking priestess who was his secret mistress!

Comment: "Your inferiority complex might be justified."
The opening scene where the guy goes out into his backyard and sees a huge rift forming, getting sucked into it and landing into the middle of a dogfight between some glitterboys and a tank battalion? No clue, don't really play Rifts so much as PFRPG and Heroes Unlimited. Now, "Heroes Unlimited", there's a movie...

My fav scene would be the final battle in the CS Tolkeen war and at the very hight of the final battle the in the heart of Tolkeen the sky grows dark and everyone stops and looks up to see nothing but Xiticix bloting out the sun then the bugs attack en mass, could you imagen the death, destruction and pure chos that would take place if that happened?

Comment: Fortune favors the bold.
RIFTS would never satisfy its fans as a feature length film. It couldn't. What we need is a miniseries that runs for like ten years. That would scratch the surface.

That scene at the end where the trio of juicers are just blurring by CS troopers in the imperial hall trying to escape with their lives while saving the emperors daughter from prosek barely making it out with their lives as the chamber explodes.

Then as the smoke clears, prosek is there under the rubble. Dead boys are there distraught not knowing what to do, magical energy begins to crackle and the demon possessed prosek rises with a smile, drains life out of the soldiers, dusting himself off, a reptilian tongue licking the blood off of his brow.

Comment: At long last....I am FINALLY free of my wonderful addiction to the online Flash game "Bloons."
Well, mostly.....
The Day Is Saved.
The Heroes Have Won.

****************************************************


The camera pans out from their victory scene, going up....and up......and up........until it rises well above the Earth.

Then a series of Earths appears, and the camera quickly flash-dives into, and out of, each Earth.

The audience quickly realizes that these places are actually alternate Earths with wildly differing points in history -on this world, Luftwaffe planes fly unopposed over a New York in flames and a destroyed Statue Of Liberty; on that one, the truly unsinkable Titanic celebrates its 50th anniversary cruise; and on yet another Earth, Abraham Lincoln's decision to create the Secret Service pays off as his would-be assassin is thwarted before even getting close.


Finally, the camera slows down as it homes in on one particular Earth.

****************************************************


On this Earth, a man named Kevin Siembieda, along with Wayne Smith, Alex Marciniszyn, and a whole host of other Pallaidum Books longtimers, is attending the world premiere of the Rifts Movie.

At a gaming place not far away, newly reinvigorated by the movie's release to rave reviews, a new generation of players are discovering this thing called a "Pen and Paper Arr-Pee-Gee" for the first time.


****************************************************


An old man at a newsstand is having an unusually good day selling papers. The viewing audience soon comes to realize that this is their Earth, where Rifts is just a fictional game and now a movie, and there's no such thing as Giant Robots or Dragons or Wizards.

The Main Headline of the paper reads, "Pakistan and India on the brink of all-out nuclear war;" observant viewers can also make out that at least seven, and possibly eight planets, are in super-rare alignment from the second-biggest headline on the front page.

The final, long scene goes abruptly to black, and the end credits start rolling, right before the audience is allowed to know whether or not the Indian/Pakistani Prime Minister will authorize a preemptive nuclear strike on their hated enemies at midnight local time........

A streak of light in the night sky resolves into an object falling to Earth, bright yellow and whitish flames surrounding it as it crashes into a shallow bay. A tremendous boom and splash follows, steam obscuring the scene, then movement among the hazy wreckage: a giant 10-foot creature resembling a pumpkin-headed monster with glowing yellow eyes, a scrawny wooden body, and brown vinous limbs steps out of the water and sits down on a nearby boulder. Without warning, two blasts of energy erupt from the edge of the forest just past the shore, striking the creature and doing very little damage. Two scruffy-looking men in patchwork armor step out from behind the trees and shoot again, but the creature moves with blinding speed, running up to them and grabbing them by their armored chest pieces. The two men fire a third time, and the creature huffs a noxious cloud that envelops the men and turns their gear into melted sludge, leaving them naked and defenseless. Just then, a tiny butterfly flits into view, circles the men, who swat at it and curse, then lands on the large creature who only says, "Hello, little one."

The creature leans close to the two men and whispers, "That... was not nice. I believe you owe me an apology." The butterfly flits near the creature's orange ear hole and the creature amends, "And one for the little one, too." The men, both looking terrified, stammer out apologies in a thick brogue as they cover themselves with their hands. The creature nods once, then looks at the tiny creature which turns out to be a faerie, and says, "I am lost. Can you please help me?" The faerie starts flying in the direction of a massive tree that towers above all the others, and the creature follows her. As they walk away from the two naked men, the creature hears them yelling and cursing, their words fading into the distance.

He looks at the faerie and says, "I think your friends found them." The faerie seems to twinkle as she flies ahead.

Did anyone catch the part about the Cyber-Knight mentioned he was a Sea-Titan ?
That explains why he did not have the cyberarmor implants yet survived the punch of that Megajuicer villian.
Or that it the custom full conversion cyborg was actually an Anti-Monster cyborg.

That edited scene where they gathered the 20 extra in full CS armor & re-enacted the Men In Tights number from Mel Brooks' Robin Hood: Men in Tights.

Comment: Don't waste your time gloating over a wounded enemy. Pull the damn trigger.
Best Action Scene: Without a doubt, when the old cyberknight held the pass against a full armored company of CS troops. The power armor stormed in, but they couldn't see him, they tried to shoot blind, but had to pull back or kill their own. He was pressed greatly, fighting deadboys in melee, cutting down dozens with his zen skills until he finally fell heroically, holding on just long enough, but dying ignobly in the end. Ground to bits, stabbed through the heart, then face and neck and left in a field.

Best Funnies: Juicer and Crazy having a staring contest. Juicer claims he wins because he blinks faster and stronger.

The "I can't believe they included that..." Scene: Chain mail bikini girl with goggles and a rune rapier fights a dragon and wins.

The "Hell yeah, they included that!" scene: A group of "heroes" (not the main characters) traipses about, engages deadboys. The skullheads retreat and the party cheers, throwing all kinds of insults. Missiles rain from the sky and kill the "heroes."

At the End: The city of DweomLazlkeen-scape is victorious over the evil Prosek States and Erin Tarn is elevated to deity status, against her wishes as she's very embarrassed by all this attention and Victor Lazlo is revealed to have accidentally started the apocalypse by leaving his time when he did.
