    This is Ed, a super realistic face digitally rendered using Lightwave, Sculptris and Krita by Australian artist Chris Jones. I say super realistic, but you can easily tell it's fake because it's just a floating head -- there's no body. Nice try, but that's a dead giveaway, Ch... / Continue →

    This is a video from Stan Winston Studio of creature designer Stephen Norrington discussing how the chestbursting alien was made and operated for the iconic movie scene. It's actually fairly simple and required zero CGI. Remember when movies didn't use CGI and the special eff... / Continue →

    This is a computer graphics clash between the forces of Star Wars and Star Trek in and above San Francisco. Who wins? I'm not saying, that would be a spoiler. I'm joking, the video's called 'Death Star Destroys Enterprise'. It's a special extended re-release of this crappie... / Continue →

    I don't care what anybody says, I liked the first Dead Island. I had a lot of fun slicing through those undead f***ers with my electrified machete. Sure the gameplay didn't have anything to do with the cinematic trailer they made for it, but that didn't really get my panties ... / Continue →

    You ever been wandering through the desert, so dehydrated you've considered drinking your own urine until you actually pee and it looks like motor oil? Me neither. But if we had, one of us may have seen a mirage. A beautiful pond of fresh water, just beckoning you to frolic ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a couple trio of bros throwing paper airplanes off the roof of a college building. One guy's plane, the 'Odin Raven', manages to make its way into a trashcan in the parking lot below. Sure he didn't mean for that to happen, but it's still kind of impressive... / Continue →

    This is a fake-ass video of a whole bunch of those Chuck E Cheese ball pit balls allegedly floating around in mid-air thanks to a giant electromagnetic and some iffy electronics stuffed inside each one. You can send it to your friends telling them it's real if you want, but it... / Continue →

    This is a 1:00 commercial for kitchen sinks or something made by Alex Roman entirely with computer graphics. I know you want to believe it's real, but it's not, just like the SPOILER ALERT!: tooth fairy. Under-the-bed goblins are real though, and they will grope you in your ... / Continue →

    Remember the 30-seconds of cellphone footage from the fan-made Pokemon trailer? Well here's the whole three minute video (available in HD!). Now I'm not a guy who normally cries at movies, but watching Pikachu get beat up did make my eyes water a bit. Just kidding, I was huf... / Continue →

    This is a little Transformers movie made by a couple shirtless Ruskies. Ha, I didn't even know they had special effects in Russia! I thought it was all nesting dolls and vodka. That probably sounded racist aside, in Russia robots transform you. My new video experiment, base... / Continue →

    I don't really keep up with movie news because that's IWatchStuff's job, but I did hear somebody's making a live-action version of the 'Lord of the Ring' series, so that's pretty exciting. I like turtles. But not this one, which is allegedly for the new Teenage Mutant Ninja T... / Continue →

    This is a picture of part of a Star Wars invasion of Dubai taken by photographer Cédric Delsaux and CG-ified by Pierrick Gueneugue. I posted a couple more after the jump but you really need to go the website and see them all in high-res for full appreciation. And speaking o... / Continue →

    NOTE: No real spoilers. Thinking about going to see Avatar this weekend but don't feel up to climbing the basement stairs? I'm with you. Thankfully, this five-panel comic sums up the entire movie. BOOM, just saved you $10! Don't worry, no need to thank me. Well, there is ... / Continue →

    This is a German commercial for something I have no idea what is (saturn.de?) that shows the evolution of technology in robotic form. It confused me in my pants. I definitely felt a little twitter at the part with the t-rex, but the rest of it just scared me. And the chick f... / Continue →

    Nice try buddy, but you're no Star Wars kid. Youtube Thanks to Andy, who once beat Bruce Lee at nunchuck ping pong.... / Continue →

    This is a video of Macs and PCs transforming into little robot people and battling to the death. Who wins? You'll have to watch to find out! Read: I stopped watching halfway through to go scavenge for food. Well sandwiches don't make themselves! *ahem* Ladies, that was a h... / Continue →

    A Star Wars fan and culinary artist wanted to make a Star Wars-y dish, but was reluctant to eat any of the cool characters. The solution? You guessed it -- Jar Jar. Jar Jar Binks was easily the worst thing about The Phantom Menace. If I could create a scrumptious salad out o... / Continue →

    You see that chick? She's not real -- she's a CG version of actress Emily O'Brien created by facial animation studio Image Metrics. And let me tell you, she definitely kicks the shit out of last week's CG facials. Using (USC's) Institute for Creative Technologies' special sc... / Continue →

    This is a viral video for Samsung's new touchscreen Omnia i900 phone. I don't want to ruin anything, so you'll just have to watch it. I thought it was cute. Well, not like bunny or kitten cute, but still, it's neat. Just not as neat as my bedroom. I'm OCD. Youtube Than... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Galactic Empire invading San Francisco. There's the Death Star, Star Destroyer, some AT-ATs, and a bunch of other vehicles. While it's not the best CG I've ever seen, I still felt it was worth a viewing. I especially liked the part at the end where the t... / Continue →
