Compare Warm And Cool Scenes In Movies, Side By Side

Video: Movies can show so much just from tweaking how a scene looks. Steely, icy, blue, colder looking scenes can mean something much different than bright, warm, golden scenes. Pixels & Frequencies put the two type of visual temperatures right next to each other from various movies in this video below.


How The Thing's Gross Defibrillator Chest Chomp Scene Was Made

Video: John Carpenter’s The Thing is a masterclass on the use of practical effects. The makeup effects team worked for seven days a week for 57 weeks to create the realistic alien creatures, gore and viscera we see on the film. This neat video by Cinefix explains how they made it.


The Beautiful Ancient Art Of Making Sake

Yoshida Brewery in northern Japan is a 144-year-old family brewery that makes sake the old-fashioned way. That is, they make sake in a way that preserves a 2000-year-old tradition. Erik Shirai made a beautiful short of the people at Yoshida and the process of making sake in his film The Birth of Sake, and it looks like it will be an incredible watch.


Watch The Most Ridiculous Used-Car Ad Ever With A Drone

So you’re selling a car on Craigslist. You’re probably planning to take a few photos in your driveway and write some generic descriptions. “Runs good,” you’ll say. “Daily driver.” Amateur. Real Craigslist Pros film their car ads with drones.


How Movies Use The Beautiful Fade To White Scene

Fading to black means stopping. It’s a period mark. An end point. The story is over. Fading to white? It can be used to mean so much more. It could be the end, but it also doesn’t have to be. It could be hopeful and enlightening and happy. But it could also be sad. Here’s a compilation of fade to white scenes in movies.


This Movie's Realistic AI Scared The Shit Out Of Me

When I watched the trailer for Ex Machina, I was excited. It wasn’t just the uncanny and attractive robot Ava, either. There were androids, AI, Turing tests! This looked like the scifi movie of my dreams. But when I saw Ex Machina recently, I was terrified. Because it told the truth about what AI might become.


All The Close-Up Shots From The Matrix

I think this is my new favourite way to re-watch movies that I have seen a million times already: just follow the story through the close up shots. It works surprisingly well! As in the of The Matrix, you can see Neo’s progression from outsider to The One and all the things that happened in between with just close up shots.


How Captain America Got Deleted In The Avengers -- And Six Other Factoids

Video: If you’re excited for The Avengers: Age of Ultron to come out next month, congratulations and welcome to the human race. It’s going to be crazy. But before that superhero spectacle begins, it’s always fun to look back at the original movie. Here are some things you didn’t know about The Avengers.


The Beautiful Whimsy Of Spike Jonze Movies

I love to watch movies by Spike Jonze because he always tells interesting stories with even more interesting characters. But what I may love more is the look of his films. Jacob T. Swinney edited together this video to show the aesthetics of whimsy and you’ll see interesting camera angles, lens flares and more.


Interstellar Honest Trailer Rips Apart Christopher Nolan's Space Movie

I love watching Honest Trailers’ takedown of movies because they highlight actual problems, they’re actually really funny and they have no sacred cows. They can skewer Michael Bay right next to burning down everyone’s post-Dark Knight shrine to Chris Nolan. Here they are hilariously ripping up Interstellar.
