Paul Scheer sheds some light on The Room, lets us in on a secret in The Disaster Artist, and answers your questions. Plus, we explore the origins of midnight movies and take a look at IMDb's Top 10 Stars of 2017.
This is a six minute featurette on the Region 2 DVD of Man of Steel(no,
you read that right...don't ask me. I guess they had to put *something*
on? Well, there is one of the FX that I've reviewed by the name of
Krypton Decoded. And a nifty 2 minute 75th anniversary animated short),
concerning, yeah, it's there in the overlong title. As I watched this
from a copy from my library, I can't say for sure if there's supposed
to be another disc to it with more, well, any other, extras, but it
didn't come with here. And the cover text doesn't suggest such exist.
So, real cheapo, this one. Not even about this. See, this is why
special feature hunters should always look carefully what it says about
Anyway, it goes into how the country was the only place they could
possibly shoot, focusing on Hobbiton: filming it from the air now that
that's possible, building and reconstructing sets, how it's really
there with no FX enhancements necessary(...no, really. They said this
about arguably the most over CG-ed movies in recent memory), the beauty
of nature(unintentionally making a strong case for environmentalism,
actually respecting nature, you know, crazy notions like protecting
what's keeping us alive, if for no other reason than to, y'know,
prolong our own existence). It consists of a series of short interviews
with crew and cast(some of whom are all but unrecognizable out of
make-up, costume and character, clips of the films, behind-the-scenes
footage, pre-visualizations, green screen footage, and the effects are
further gone through as we see partially complete ones.
There is a nothing objectionable in this. I recommend this to anyone
interested in the subject, as it's quite concise and detailed on it.
