Marvel Studios is Doing Human CGI Better Than Anyone Else & Here’s Why: Lola VFX

Marvel Studios is Doing Human CGI Better Than Anyone Else & Here’s Why: Lola VFX

As wonderful as Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is, I still can’t wrap my head around the CGI characters of Grand Moff Tarkin and a young princess Leia… They just don’t look real to me and I think it’s because the eyes are too damn shiny, which gives the face this glossy mannequin look. Marvel on the other hand just delivered a de-aged Kurt Russell in Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2 and I could not tell that he was CGI. Not one damn bit. Why is Marvel making better CGI faces than anyone else? Turns out it isn’t the technology, but rather it comes down to plain ol’ hard work and artistry from Lola VFX. Read more

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2: Action Packed & Also The Funniest Movie of The Year! (Review)

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2: Action Packed & Also The Funniest Movie of The Year! (Review)

I’ve been looking forward to the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel for a while now.  I loved the first one and the second one looked awesome.  And I’m here to tell you:  it was.  And that was even after the whole ordeal that comes with seeing something everyone else wants to see right away – we had long waits, the line cutters, the seat savers (actually that one was almost me), the guy with the crying baby who wouldn’t leave.  Even with all those, I still had a wonderful time.   Read more

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Lovable Characters Help Propel Robust Sequel (Review)

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Lovable Characters Help Propel Robust Sequel (Review)

Three years after coming out of left field and becoming everyone’s favorite group of superheroes overnight, the A-holes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) are back in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The first entries in these superhero outings from Marvel Studios are usually “fairly good.” But that was not the case with 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which is arguably one of the very best movies to date in the MCU. So, going into Vol. 2, the expectations are fairly high. Vol. 2 hits all the right notes as a sequel; it’s bigger in every aspect – from scope to characters and action. Bigger can be better in many cases, but Vol. 2’s plot keeps those bigger things rather slender and rangy at times. But still, director James Gunn’s usage of these characters we’ve all come to know and love help propel this robust, entertaining sequel.

Sean’s Most Anticipated Movies of 2017: Logan, Beauty and the Beast & Star Wars

Sean’s Most Anticipated Movies of 2017: Logan, Beauty and the Beast & Star Wars

Let’s be honest – 2016 was the most underwhelming year at the movies in recent memory. While there was a fair of number great and entertaining movies, the wait between seeing memorable ones felt longer than usual. And while, as the trades have reported, it was another record-breaking year at the box office, inflation diminished the return of some of the biggest movies of 2016.

Thankfully, 2016 is out of the way and 2017 has arrived and studios are doubling down on tentpole movies. It’s exciting to consider what 2017 has to offer, as many movies scheduled for release throughout the year look very promising. As such, it was difficult to pick five movies I’m most looking forward to in 2017.
