Welcome to MONSTERLAND FORUMS! We are a casual and friendly online community of movie fans who like to talk about giant monsters, horror and sci-fi in cinema, on television and on Blu Ray/DVD. There are forums for sports, casual chat and video games as well. For those of you who like making art, writing stories and creating videos, our community includes a forum for these submissions as well. Check out our main index page and other board forums! Anyone is welcome to join our community!

MONSTERLAND FORUMS was created on January 29, 2006 for the purpose of giving fans of giant monster films and other sci-fi/horror movies a friendly online meeting place to discuss all of their favorite films and other things of interest like video gaming and sports.

MONSTERLAND FORUMS has 315 member registrations and over 177,000 posts. This online community is Zetaboards' sixth(6th) most active online community among over 383 similarly categorized message boards.

Fall is finally here!

Our online community is fairly small but I think it's the best group with which to discuss all the movies we love to watch and also talk about other shared interests! For those of you checking out this message board for the first time give our forums a look: I think you'll like what you see!

GODZILLA(2014), produced by Legendary Pictures and directed by Gareth Edwards, has generated over $521 million in worldwide box office receipts and is currently available on Blu Ray/DVD! A sequel, "Godzilla 2" is planned for 2018 which feature Rodan, Mothra and King Ghidorah! Toho's new Godzilla film called "Shin Godzilla"(2016 - intl title) was released to theaters in Japan this past summer and is a hit! This movie will see a limited theatrical run in the U.S. from October 11th - 18th and hopefully a Blu Ray release will follow by the year's end.

Legendary Pictures is planning a "Pacific Rim" sequel film for April, 2017 and "Kong:Skull Island" hits theaters next year so fans of giant monster movies have a lot to look forward to between now and 2018.

I recently got a Canon Digital EOS Rebel T2i 550D camera so I could learn photography. Does anyone else here do photography?

I myself am still pretty new at it so some of the shots I have don't look that great. I'm still trying to learn my camera as well since it's pretty advanced.

Here are some shots I did.

http://s264.photobucket.com/albums/ii192/gvamp/Canon%20T2i%20Pics/

The shots of the piranha are me testing out the various camera settings and various shoot styles. The shots of my dogs where basically using the camera as a point and click. Nothing was changed setting wise.

Like I said above I'm pretty new to this so before I start taking more creative shots I'm going to read the manual that came with the camera so I can get an understanding of it. I've downloaded a documentary tailored for my camera. Finally I'm going to see if my school offers a class on photography, if not then there's a school like place that offers various class types for people I might see if they have one, or if not then my old college I know has classes so I'll just enrol there in time.

So who else here does photography? What type of camera are you using?

Yeah she looks mean in that picture but in actuallity the reason she looks like she's snarling is because she's old going to 10 this year and is missing some teeth.

I've got a camera on my Samsung Freeform cell phone but I get a compatibility error message when I try to download the software into my computer that's necessary to upload images from phone.

Odd do you have an older computer? Might be an OS issue. Maybe trying going to Samsungs website and download the software there.

I have a Compaq desktop computer I bought from Office Depot in March, 2009. I paid $309.99 plus tax for this computer. I use Windows 7 home premium as an OS(it was already preloaded in the computer). I have a USB cable that came with my cell phone that can used for uploading pics from my phone to the PC. The problem is I get an error message whenever I have tried to download the software(from the CD I got with the phone).

That's a good idea, Tom about talking with Samsung. I recently entered into an online chat with a Samsung rep at their SamsungMobileUSA website regarding my cell phone: I was getting a weird white screen and "download mode" text on the screen. The rep suggested I remove the battery and then put it back in and power the phone back up. It worked but the Samsung rep also suggested I buy a new battery also which I did.

Good news Lee.

I should have some better more creative shots coming in the next few weeks once I learn the camera controlls and settings a little better.

I will be posting my setup (TV and PC) later this weekend once I get my new desk.

Here's the latest photo I took earlier tonight, it's my first dusk shot and I think it turned out pretty good.

http://i264.photobucket.com/albums/ii192/gvamp/Canon%20T2i%20Pics/IMG_0026.jpg

I was in a hurry getting settings changed because I forgot I wanted to do a shot like this, but thankfully everything turned out okay, yeah it could have been better but it also could have been worse. The only problem is that it's a little bit darker than what it was acutally outside when I took the picture.

That's in the process, going to be getting a new computer desk later this week from my brother in law so after that I plan on posting pics of my entire set up.

So here's my setup
http://s264.photobucket.com/albums/ii192/gvamp/My%20Setup/

These where taken on the Full Auto mode of my Canon T2i so nothing real fancy. I know the TV picture has a bad angle and looks crowded with cables I plan on fixing that soon. The bad angle is from the bed being in the way.

Computer photos coming soon. Still waiting for my lazy brother in law to get my new desk to me.

No I haven't but it looks like something similar you can do with Macro photography.

I just got back from a trip up to my Uncle's cabin in the middle of Michigan's Upper Pennisula what we Michiganders dub the U.P. expect plenty of pics of various wildlife and scenary shots I took VERY soon.

Also expect shots of my other photography efforts over the past few months. I really need to get around to editing my photos, convert them to JPEG and upload them up to my Photobucket account.

And here's a link to the album with the rest of the mantis pics as well as many other pictures that I took since my last posting in this thread.

I really wish I had a macro lens for this but I'm pretty happy with the shots. I had to use my 55-250mm which is a telephoto lens meaning it's used for taking pictures at a distance. Going to be investing in a macro lens soon.

He hasn't but it would be a total disaster if he got out. Big boys have got to eat lol

I do have to say that I would be scared to death if the other two female lion sisters get out. Now they are true bitches!
These sisters killed their mother when they were cubs for the shear fun of it. There was no reason to do it, they weren't
hungry at all, they did it just to do it. They have also killed other male lions for the shear fun of it as well.
There was one that they killed and they ended up playing with his severed tail . . . shifty eyes
