“Venom”: back in the nineties

The genre of motion picture comics continues to gain popularity, but in recent years it seems Marvel and its disney stories have virtually become monopolists in this market. Yes, DC is slowly winning back a place in the sun among the series, but in full meter with the marvel pipeline, it seems, there is little that can be compared. And the Sony company, having thought strategically, tries to join this conveyor, for a start – by means of “venom”(“Venom”).

“Detective Pikachu”: the highest quality digital fur

Video game movies are usually unlucky. The writers are struggling to connect what is happening in the games sur with the real world and real logic, because of what they have a complete mess. The creators of “Detective Pikachu” (Detective Pikachu) went the other way — they drew a completely new, almost detached from our world and did not try to cram into it the whole history of a huge franchise. And so they succeeded.

Everything in “Detective Pikachu”, except, perhaps, a couple of people and a few objects-digital, unreal, lovingly drawn by animators to the last hair, to the smallest scratch on the building. Most often, studios offer to put digital animals in a real environment, but in “Detective Pikachu” the environment was drawn for these very animals, placing people in it. Continue reading
