Ex Machina
show user profile  Lazmo67
Anyone seen this. I loved it. watching some "making of" stuff on youtube and they say they didn't use green screen. Any thoughts on their process. CGI seemed truly faultless to me.

Thanks for the suggestion,Lazmo.
In Facebook somebody posted an article on low quality of digital effects in modern movies. I agree on a lot of points,though I didn't find chromatic aberration, which I think is the worst and most misused crap in almost every cg derived image).

Seeing the ExMachina trailer I feel some very natural sensation(maybe, infact, it's the lack of green screen) . It looks like we're witnessing to a backtrack of visual fx. We're going back to real models, maquettes and hand made props. I strongly suggest to check out Interstellar making of. They've built almost everything. And the ship you see in the movie it's 1:1. Lighting and texture of a real model is still ubeaten. That's why BladeRunner(1982) still looks cool.

Yeah, it's good. Very good. That dance scene alone is worth the price of admission. Also you get to see the chick fully naked. And she's hot.

[edit] though, Chappie's better.

[edit] oh, and since Joey mentioned the low quality of vfx today... Jurrassic Park's vfx look better than Jurrassic World's!? WTF??!!?

I loved it - watched it 3 times in 1 day (at home) - it really did make me feel strange after watching it the first time

It was alright. Without spoiling it all I'll say is that I'm glad the plot didn't turn out the way I expected it. basing speculation off the trailer I thought it would of gone a different way. Good flick. I think I will always dislike the idea of AI regardless of if it goes good or bad... The idea freaks me out some and it is my opinion that seeking such technology out as we currently are is a huge mistake.

fokken prawnz.

Neil Blomkamp is a genius. Not seen Chappie yet.

Related, I read a really interesting article about exactly why VFX in modern films is, well, shit.

Can't find it now.

edit: Oh, it came up in my news feed - maybe it was another MFer who posted it originally.

There goes the "practical FX" label. P.S. Finally saw the film, man it's not good.
