“The Hobbit” Set Tour

This video is just a ton of fun. (Sorry, can’t embed it.) It’s a tour of the New Zealand studio where Peter Jackson is making The Hobbit. It’s long, but make sure you watch it all the way to the end. Catnip for nerds. [Read more...]

Greydanus on Avengers

Cameron commissioned a specially-designed sub, Deepsea Challenger, to make the journey and return with 3D footage, but the potential for [Read More...]
