Watch ILM Completely Digitally Create the Planets of Rogue One 

5 days agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

The best visual effects are the ones we don’t even see. In Rogue One, we know Tarkin isn’t physically there and that the Death Star doesn’t really exist. So it’s the landscapes that are the true magic: entire worlds created in a computer to build out and expand a little sliver of actual filming, or nothing at all. Read more...

Does Something Have to Be Canonical to Be Good?

5 days agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

Halloa and well met, people on my post-apocalyptic mail route! Not gonna lie, this week’s group of questions forced me to think extra hard about canon vs. quality, why America doesn’t care about Judge Dredd, if Back to the Future’s Doc Brown is a time-traveling hypocrite, and more.
