Remember in 1993 when Jurassic Park was like…the end all, be all of special effects?

not gonna lie that still looks intimately real

I’m still somewhat convinced that someone sold their soul to create the special effects in Jurassic Park because that shit is over 20 years old and it still really, really holds up, better than the stuff in a lot of current movies, even.

Fucking witchcraft, man. 

A lot of the effects in closeups you see were practical effects. That means they actually built a T-Rex head to lower and bring near the jeeps for shots like this. This was when CGI was just really starting to be felt out, and more used for things like the dinosaurs running, which they couldn’t build a full running robot for. But a lot of the dino closeups were, technically, real. :D

They did, they did! =D I remember reading about it somewhere years ago, that when they did this stuff, specifically the in the jeep stuff i think, they made life sized T-Rex heads. Those reactions are real man. 

idk if they do this anymore, but I went to Halloween Horror Nights at Islands of Adventure one year and on Jurassic Park Island they used the actual raptor puppets from the movie

they were scary as fuck man

there was an exhibit at the seattle science center when i was really little and we went on a field trip to see it and it was super cool!

nah nobody sold their soul to make those special effects, that was Stan Winston and he was just that fucking good

the CG holds up pretty well, I think — it’s certainly better than Syfy original movie shit. the first sauropod is a little off, but people noticed that even at the time. I think the key is that the CG dinosaurs only really interact with other CG stuff, and when there’s physical contact required they use the models.

this video never fucking gets old

Tony walked in the living room. He held himself very straight and his face was a carefully emotionless mask, but Steve could see he was fuming.

"What happened?" Steve asked.

Tony stopped, turned to look at him and took in a steadying breath. “I told you someone wanted to make an Avengers movie.”

He had. It was weird, to think of people wanting to make their lives into entertainment — but the cartoon, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, was harmless enough, and Tony made sure that the majority of income from all such projects went to charity, so Steve thought it was all right.

"Yeah?"

Bruce, sitting in the corner, raised his head. “Another one?”

"Why, it is only normal people want to hear stories of the adventures," Thor said.

Tony looked at Bruce and something flickered on his face. Steve raised his eyebrows. “Tony?”

"I broke the negotiations," he said, very calmly.

It happened. It didn’t explain how furious he was. Steve wanted to ask, but then Tony continued, “They wanted to make it without Jan.”

There was a moment of silence, and then Steve punched the coffee table so hard it broke, a thunderstorm started outside out of nowhere and the Hulk broke loose.

There was no Avengers without Jan.

reblogging mainly for the tiny baby ear protectors, what a good idea

(well, okay, also because of Chris Evans’s burning need to hold babies, look at this fucking nerdlinger)

alright, this Deadpool test footage is GREAT, but makes me really bummed we’ll never get Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool. He’s quickly aging out of the role…

How can he age out of this time anytime soon? The motherfucker is literally covered head to toe.

He is covered head to toe most of the time, but, you know if they get anyone who’s recognizable in the role, he’ll spend a good chunk of time with the mask off, so his face can be seen. 

Now that I’m thinking about it though, if they actually keep him with the incredibly scarred up face, he could still fit the role for a while

See also: Dredd. He doesn’t have to have his face uncovered, it’s just most stars demand it. He could always be awesome and choose to not.

re: the scarring, Robert Englund played Freddy Krueger for damn near twenty years and I’m sure he still could, the makeup covers everything

I know I’ve brought this up before but like

every time I see the word “dudebro” I get a little annoyed

bc my friends coined the term “dubro” over ten years ago to mean the same thing (dude + bro) and “dubro” is just a better word. rolls right off the tongue.

Just to clarify 

and all this means, Thor and Steve WILL be back in their roles at some point. So this is not forever. I can’t believe some people are pissed about it.

wait, did they make Steve Rogers alive again? because that definitely proves no change is forever, I’m apparently behind on the times because I thought Bucky was still Captain America and Steve was still dead
I know some people who’re pissed off precisely because it’s not forever and this is kind of like Marvel throwing us a bone while it goes on to neglect established female/PoC characters and do creepy fucked-up shit elsewhere, but that’s definitely an opinion I can respect, unlike “bluh bluh our white dude faves are GONE”
