Timeless Classics: Star Trek Into Darkness

J.J. Abrams did a great job reintroducing Star Trek to the big screen and eventually created Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) that publicly addressed a post-9/11 world in a science fiction universe.

Practical Effects Vs CGI: Smaug

Peter Jackson's Middle-earth film adaptations had a lot of great visual effect shots. One of the more memorable ones was Smaug's first appearance in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013). Benedict Cumberbatch did the motion capture and voice for Smaug in the film to an amazing effect. Had Peter Jackson made The Hobbit trilogy … Continue reading Practical Effects Vs CGI: Smaug
