Cross-posting from the Ask LV thread. Short watch, but pretty interesting if you have an interest in cinematography.

While I've never loved Toby McGuire, after seeing him portrayed by Michael Cera in Molly's Game, then reading about Mcguire's antics that Cera's character was based on, I've decided I hate him.

That was a difficult sentence to process until I read the Wikipedia article.

Did you see Molly's Game. She claims the actor character (based on McGuire) told her that he doesn't need the money, he just likes destroying people's lives.

I did not, hence why I had to read the wiki. It's not really on my radar.

I was surprised too....but yeah seems Tobey is a real fucked up human being. Kinda enjoy that his career seems to be over these days.

For my money, the T-Rex in the rain sequence in Jurassic Park has got to be the best special effects sequence ever. Practically seamless, almost always photorealistic, intense AF, constructed immaculately. Tippett’s animatronic work is astoundingly good. The moment when the animatronic Rex jerks its head downward after Tim slams the car door is just unbelievable. How they got something so big - and soaked with water - to move so quickly without displaying any unnatural, mechanical juddering is mindblowing. Leave it to a visualist like Spielberg and a DP like Dean Cundey to figure out how to perfectly light and color time a scene to blend CGI in a way that is almost undetectable - WHEN THE TECH WAS BRAND NEW. That’s an art that is STILL not well understood.

Yeah that scene is awesome. One of those movie scenes where all the time and money involved actually made something perfect.

I would actually totally agree with this.

its very well documented in the Spielberg doc..not the scene itself for how important that movie was in that moment.
I remember as a kid going to the movies and feeling exactly what those characters felt in the movie.

I would agree with this too. Staggering. As much as the movie overall leaves me cold and wanting so much more, the effects are breathtaking and there are a couple of individual scenes that still blow me away.

It's amazing how well those effects have held up too! Movies that came much later look far more dated than Jurassic Park. They still look amazing. What a great movie too.
