    Yeah, a LOW CGI budget.

    I thought the blowing up of the building looked horribly bad.

    (..and this is from someone who likes old videogames and definitely thinks that cardboard special effects in orig Dr. Who, Blake's 7, and Star Trek is perfectly acceptable... But if you're trying to be high tech, don't do it horribly.)


    I laughed at the psych! moment too.

    (Oh, and while I am correcting something else, here's probably an error on my part, and probably one I made in other threads.. Didn't we learn that the mother is the roommate of one of his former girlfriends??? or what am I mis-remembering?)

    lamp selection (the real name for a "light bulb") would be the responsibility of the electrical engineer on a project.

    An architect in some cases may work with the engineer on selecting specific lighting fixtures if he is after a certain look, but even that is generally left to the engineer.

    An architect or interior designer would be involved in choosing lighted for aesthetic reasons. An electrical engineer would be involved in making sure the building could handle the load placed by the lighting. Or something like that...

    One thing i know for sure is that you don't ask an engineer how something looks.

    If the architect is trying to make the building LEED certified, wouldn't lighting be one of the areas he'd be concerned about, to make sure the power consumption meets the requirements?
