This Hand-Drawn Big Hero 6 Trailer Is So Simple But So Lovely

CGI is wonderful, and I love it when excellent animators use it for their films, but there’s something about the ol’ trusty pen and pencil way of hand drawing (even if it’s not done with a pen and pencil) that always makes me smile. It’s like doing things simpler is sometimes better.


Recreate Raiders' Goriest Scene With A Melting Nazi Candle

Die-hard fans of Raiders of the Lost Ark will finally be able to recreate what is certainly the most unsettling scene in the movie, and one of the creepiest uses of practical effects ever to hit the silver screen. But instead of multiple layers of melting gelatin, this Major Toht candle is of course made of wax — so it doesn’t melt quite so quickly.


How Interstellar's Robots Were Made With Hardly Any CGI

If you’ve seen Interstellar, then you know that the best characters are the wise-cracking robots. Unassumingly boxy and faceless, they somehow end up stealing the show.

Stanley Kubrick was a genius of suspense and drama, but maybe one of the lesser explored facets of his filmmaking is his use of colour. Thankfully, Rishi Kaneria crammed some of the auteur’s most beautiful crimson scenes into a single 1:25 cut.


How Guardians Of The Galaxy Should Have Ended

Guardians of the Galaxy was one of the best movies of the year and probably one of the funnest movies I’ve seen in a long while but it also had its fair share of logic gaps that were glossed over. HISHE hilarious fixed the movie by changing some scenes in the movie so it all makes sense. Spoiler alert: the bad guys win.


Behind The Scenes At The Best IMAX Theatre In America

Since 1994, as far as movie theatres go, the IMAX at Lincoln Center in New York City is the best there is. With films projected on an enormous 100-foot screen, any viewing experience there certainly fits the bill as “larger than life.”


How Do You Feel About Peanuts In CGI?

Same Snoopy, same familiar “Linus and Lucy” theme music, but the look is a little bit different. Your old favourite cartoon, Peanuts, is hitting the big screen for the first time in 2015, and here’s the first trailer. How do you feel about the gang going 3D CGI?


Of Course Hollywood Is Making A Playmobil Movie Now

As they say in Hollywood, “if at first you do succeed, try and try again with the exact same premise.” So hot on the heels of the incredibly successful Lego movie, Paris-based ON Entertainment has revealed it will produce an $US80 million animated featured based on the Playmobil toy line.


The Top 10 Chase Scenes Of All Time -- Or At Least Some Of Them

Video: I like to watch Cinefix’s top whatever whatever because they always prompt me to rewatch something or watch something new. But then I don’t like them because they are inevitably unfair. They could have done 10 lists of the top 10 chases scenes of all time and all of them would have been different.
