    Putting it out there again: Dredd (2012)'s Slo-Mo FX! It's a lot of basic slow-motion, but they tweak it with VFX to such a pleasing and iconic aesthetic that it DESERVES to be reacted to!

      Such a shame that movie didn't do well. It was amazing and I really wanted a sequel.

    what gets me in the breaking bad scene is the explosion itself. it's so realistic and raw, no intense fireballs or any of that stuff. just plain power and awesomeness

    • TheAthens619
      TheAthens619 8 days ago

      The unrealistic thing from it is that he gets up and walks out, fixes his tie, and then dies. That's not how that works, he would have been knocked out from the shockwave , concussed and died quickly after; 0% of getting up and walking out. Don't care if you're a bad ass villain, you're still human and obey the laws of physics

    I would love to see y’all discuss the hunger games! As the series progressed, the cgi became better and better. Additionally, much of the cgi was creating environments which were very stylized, and I would love to hear y’all discuss how to create convincing environments while keeping a specific style

      The 2nd one was filmed partially at the Atlanta Beach, which was an artificial beach constructed for the 96 Olympics, to have the circular beach in the arena. The VFX in those shots is incredible, I think the only thing that isn't created is the beach itself. The entire background and I'm sure lots of the stuff in the water is CG.

  • AJ

    i really liked the jankiness of the NPH slow-mo sequence. it was an affect i hadn't seen before and felt unique and jarring which i think was the intended result

    • Mark Colville
      Mark Colville 3 months ago +5

      @RetroRad The mismatched framerate is the intended part, the terrible rotoscoping, bad exposure and lighting is not the intended part. Unless the goal is to make it look like low budget cgi, in which case they succeeded.

    • RetroRad
      RetroRad 3 months ago +4

      It IS the intended result and Its so frustrating that they don't realize it. It's a stylized attempt at portraying latency in like an online video game. I think its super cool, and exactly what they were going for. They wanted to try something different than just re-doing an old effect that they already proved they could do perfectly, even back then.

    crosina 4 months ago +106

    Yes!! I remember watching those scenes in the Witcher and praying you guys would break it down. My brain kept going “That’s CG! Wait, it’s not CG, no, that’s CG! Wait? That’s not CG?” Glad to finally have some closure 😂.

      this but also in Silent Hill there's a scene with dark Alessa hugging Rose and then just kinda "integrates" herself into her.

  • Meris
    Meris 3 months ago +2

    The problem with the NPH scene is that we're inexplicably getting both character's perspectives of the same event, which led them to use effects which make no sense. Choose a viewpoint and stick to it; bullet time is already stretching the rules of cinematography for a specific effect.

  • Aidan Zieres
    Aidan Zieres 4 months ago +18

    Ahhh, I'm so disappointed they didn't talk about the VFX that needed to be done to cover the track in Gus's last shot. They had to digitally replace the debris on the floor in order to cover the camera track. That was also a very impressive feat.

  • D3DS3C
    D3DS3C 4 months ago +2

    I just came back to say that yesterday I watched The Matrix Resurrections and that scene with NPH where he uses "Bullet Time" was really distracting for me. I agree with Niko it did feel really janky. Also, I didn't like that it was so Meta.

    That gus scene, when I first saw it, gave me a heart attack. So convincing. So realistic.

    • Nathan Haines
      Nathan Haines 4 months ago +1

      The heart attack from me was knowing he *had* to be dead, and then seeing him walk out. Impossible! There's no *way* he could've survived! But, if anyone *could* have, it would be Gus... And there was nothing else in the show to suggest that kind of VFX budget. It was absolutely amazing filmmaking.

    Watching this episode it finally clicked why I liked this show less than a few years ago: The episodes featuring guests who break down their own work are becoming more and more like a reel or teaser for their films. (And I am actually quite certain that Corridors range on TheXvid definitely has a lot of influence on the decision to accept the invite. There must be some marketing thoughts.)
    This episode is again typical for the beginning of the show. Without someone who participated in making the scenes which are reviewed the analysis is much more honest and much less buttering up.

    Thank God y’all talked about the matrix. My friends could understand why I wasn’t happy with this movie. Whole thing felt like it didn’t really need to happen. Some stories just don’t need to be told. As far as these “requels” (sequel/reboot) this one missed the mark.

    The Breaking Bad scene is what finally made me watch the show. I kept seeing the ending of each episode on recordings of other shows I was watching, but never watched the show because I could not see how a show about a Meth dealer could be good. Then I saw him walk out of a room, with half his face blown off, and I said "Okay... I have to see what leads up to this." I am so glad I finally watched the show.

  • ethai1

    I'd like to see you guys react to:
    -Silent Hill (2006) - the otherworld transitions, and Monsters designs
    -Sam Raimi's Spider man 1 and 3 (sandman effects, Venom and symbiote effects)
    This one is more of a technical question, but in Spiderman No Way Home, they obviously reused footage of the lizard and Sandman from their original films. But they had different effects, which requires, I assume, the original footage that was caught on camera. Is it common practice to save raw footage for that long?
    Edit: I can't believe I forgot this but also in Silent Hill there's a scene with dark Alessa hugging Rose and then just kinda "integrates" herself into her.

    The Expanse. Masterful practical + digital effects throughout the whole series, immersing the audience in zero gravity. They just finished their last season, the finale was a work of art (if nothing else, the cargo container sequence).

    The 80's TV show "Amazing Stories" Season 2, Episode 8 "Go to the Head of the Class." The decapitation shots of Christopher Lloyd are really awesome for the time, and I'm not sure how they did some of them. Starts around 35:50 mark.

    For me that Nivellan (The Witcher) effect is so great due to the eyes being real, that ties it together and the performance so well.

    • Iain McClatchie
      Iain McClatchie 4 months ago +1

      The lip movements didn't look right. His lips needed to form a momentary seal when he speaks a "p". That's not actually possible when you have adjacent exposed teeth (in this case going both up and down). Nivellen's lips don't conform around his teeth, and we expect to see that when he talks.
      I realize it's a lot of work, but lips don't just go up and down when we talk. They are so agile that deaf people can tell what you are saying from looking at your lips! Watch Nivellen again -- you can't do that, his lips are too stiff. Human lips are more compliant, and we actively use our teeth to support them. People missing front teeth have speech impediments that you can hear.
      There's another problem, which is that teeth can't be exposed all the time, because they'd dry out and then shatter. Water isn't enough -- dentin requires saliva to maintain toughness and mend microfractures. Even the big canines of a lion or tiger or the protruding lowers of a hippo are covered and kept wet by loose lips that fold over them nearly all the time. These long lips are pulled back when fighting or eating, leading to the characteristic wrinkles that we associate with fierceness.

    The creature work in The Eternals was really good, but there's a specific shot I think you'd like. In the fight at Druig's compound there's a moment where a deviant gets killed and they just toss the tail away after they kill it and the weight of it feels so real

      @Lyubomir Grigorov Indeed, it also kind of sucks that they only made 6 episodes. The Season was solid but felt pretty compressed.

    This just reminds me how much I love breaking bad. If anybody here hasn’t seen it (even though one of the best payoffs in the whole show was just ruined) you should still see the show!

    Good to know about mirrors:
    If you put one finger on a mirror, there will be a little space between your finger and the reflection of said finger. Now you know, that it's a real mirror.
    If there is no space between the finger and its reflection it is a fake mirror where on the other side is most definitely some kind of space, as seen as in the Matrix shot.
    Important to know, if you're trying on or changing clothes in fitting rooms, public toilets, etc.
    Because if it is a fake mirror there can be a chance of a camera lurking behind it.
    Stay safe, in various aspects.

    Corridor Crew should definitely react to The Chronicles of Narnia. Both the Disney (and Fox) films, but also the older BBC TV show that has some rather crazy effects.

    Since you reviewed NPH Bullet Time and showed Witcher S2, I thought you would parallel how well they did the disjointed movement of the Bruxa with how they handled NPH

    I'm almost 65 and love what you guys do. A brief history, I was part of of a improv group in high school and eventually ended up in Second City Toronto. Back in the day we would volunteer at our local cable TV station to learn how it all works and then come in with our skits/material and film it ourselves. That was decades ago and during the past few years I've enjoyed your Saturday at noon drops and during Covid you have have inspired us to get creative again. My thanks (Hey I know you need the bucks and understood, some of us can't afford another internet cost but at least ya still give us the TheXvid)

    I would love to see your guys' take on the vfx in Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City because some of them (namely Birkin's final G-Virus form) look a little bit off and would like to hear how you might do it better, as well as some of the other vfx in the movie because some of them look solid. Just try not to think about how wrong they did Leon in it.

    Nivellen was SO well-done in that Witcher season 2 episode. Could’ve fooled me that it was all prosthetics, but nope, the whole face is CG. Now that’s some masterful VFX work that doesn’t overdo it while also allowing the actor to not be bothered by makeup and prosthetics for his facial performance. Also, Kristofer Hivju did it brilliantly. But man, is it weird to see him cleanly shaved after seeing him with a full beard for so long, lol

    Can you react to Archive 81, specifically the Kalego scene where the blood goes around the sculpture? A great example of how simple effects can have a big impact. Another series that would be really cool for Corridor would be a sound design artists react. Shows like the Archive 81 or the new Dune music have such great scores.

    I was just kinda thinking throughout the matrix that the reason for the obvious weirdness in the VFX at times is because this guy is intentionally screwing with the simulation and as such they allowed things that were a little jank to sip through. Ya know because he's intentionally glitching it

    Would love to see a breakdown of the ghostbusters movie vfx, starting with the charming if slightly outdated effects of the first movie and pulling through to how they brought a certain character into afterlife. Think it would be an interesting breakdown as those movie are filled with both great (the books floating and the first ghost scene in the library, first movie) and some less great effects, (something about the terror dog chase scene in the first movie doesn't feel right when I watch it at least)

    Can y'all redo the neo bullet time shot roughly 1 hour and 20 min into the movie. I'd love to see it done the same way it was done before with the bajillion cameras, regardless of how jank it ends up looking it'll be an improvement on the current shot

    On the same lines as matrix, you guys should try out the matrix’s game! All the physics are amazing! There is also a few things I have noticed that need some work, like the crash physics, everything seems too light. But also a ton of amazing things, the green tint, the lighting, all of it is pretty cool!

      Tbh I think that the crash physics are the best ever done, only complaint I have is that the car doors and stuff don’t fall off. Cars, when in high speed crash, do seem very light irl. Cars don’t weigh that much in the grand scheme of things when talking about 100‘s of miles per hour

    I know y’all just did a review of a scene from Breaking Bad but I was wondering if it may be worth it to see the scenes of a de-aged Bryan Cranston from the flashbacks. Idk whether or not there’s any CG or filters, or if it’s just makeup and the specific lighting situation the scene takes place to hide Cranston’s age. When I watch those scenes something always feels just a little off.

      Oh my gosh! I just posted a comment about this and then happen to see this comment. Yes! I loved the show for the most part and still kinda pissed at Netflix for canceling the show, they did Jim Henson company and all the people who worked so passionately on the show dirty fr. The director and producer was told by Netflix the show was canceled 60 days after the show was released but were told not to say anything publicly for another few months from what I've heard.

    As much as I love Breaking Bad, I always felt that scene where Gus walked out and adjusted his tie, just felt so out of scope for the realistic grounded tone that the rest of the show has. Great effect, but a bit gratuitous I feel.

    • Knives
      Knives 3 months ago

      @Brian Grussing I can believe it, shock and trauma in wartimes can cause the brain to totally short circuit at the horror it is trying to adjust to, but a bullet to the brain is very different to a bomb to the cranium when a good portion of it is missing.

      @Attila Puzder I mean, yes I think it's quite badass that he maintains to his character likeness through and through, but I still feel like for the show, it's a moment that could have been displayed with a little less gratuity and flair. Absolutely great episode nonetheless, Face/Off remains one of the greats.

      You wouldn't believe how far a legless torso can crawl if in shock. Or people with multiple bullets in the brain can live for hours & even days before the brain bleeding kills them. They might not even know they have a bullet(s) in their brain & if the shot(s) enter either next to the eye or in ear, it could require close scrutiny by highly experienced to tell.

    • Attila Puzder

      I had the same feeling when I've seen it for the first time. It was just so ridiculous and out of the style of the series. However it's pretty awesome how the character stays consistent even during his death. He also adjusted his tie after getting something done and he does the same in this scene showing that he always knew the risks of what he was doing. Walt was able to outsmart him and he accepts it without any hesitation.
