Wondering what you mean about LAST JEDI getting stuff wrong VFXwise, cuz it mostly looked very good to me, except for some slightly cartoony fireballs.Looked very generic to me nothing that the PT did not do way better with flair as well. For example in AOTC the camera zooms in a couple of times in the final battle. Or the Yoda vs Dooku fight some ambitious shots in there as well. Even the final tracking shot of the Dooku shuttle flying over that vast cityscape as he goes to speak to the Emperor contained more scope in it to me than all of TLJ (except for some of the skellig Michael island exteriors).
It's always fascinating to see where movies make their money. China loves Transformers and Fast & Furious, but Star Wars is a big ol' meh for them.Yeah I don't quite understand why Asia is soft for Star Wars.
Like, when I found out that Frozen was Japan's most successful movie in, like, forever...blew my mind.
Glad to see Spielberg get another blockbuster movie. Those dramas just don't pay the bills.
Only 900 shots? they seemed 3000!Well ILM did the Oasis part of the movie, which constitutes the 900 shots while DD did the "real world" portion of the film. I'm their shot count is high too.
Btw, stunning enviroment work , the avatars are stylized , but the performance capture is perfect. Loved the design of Sorrento's Henchman, it looks like a carachter from "The Maters of the Universe" toy line, wich i loved as a kid:) .
Yes, i mean that for me the OASIS only looked more than 2000 shots! It's also true that there are many continuous shots.That's probably why it seems more like 2000 rather than less than half that many.
And it got my money for the "Art and Making Of" book. And it'll probably get my Blu-Ray money (depending on what kind of bonus features it comes with).How are those Art of and Making of books for this? I wont go for them unless there is vfx coverage in them. They do that all the time though. Not including vfx coverage for films like this in books today is like missing at least half of the story.
*Also, mad ups for using Ifukube's original Godzilla theme. I definitely fist-pumped the air when the happened.
