Video: BTS of “Edge of Tomorrow” Reveal Amazing Practical SFX

With Edge of Tomorrow now available to stream, it’s a great time to revisit the making of the film, and just how many practical effects were used. Watching the video above, it’s impressive to see so many real effects and explosions going on around the actors. While more and more effects are being done with computer graphics, there has been a bit of backlash to fake-looking CGI, and a number of filmmakers (like Christopher Nolan) have bucked the trend and have attempted to get as much in-camera as possible (J.J. Abrams is also doing this on the new Star Wars film).

It takes a lot of skill and professionalism to make sure these practical effects are safe, but getting more in-camera means actors have a lot more tangible real-life objects to react to (and hopefully better performances as a result).

I found this film to be a pleasant surprise as was too quickly dismissed in the flood os summer blockbusters.  Give this film a shot and I’ll be you end up enjoying it!

The Hungry Gamer Reviews Tzolk’in

One of the more highly anticipated games from 2020 was Pendulum, a game that had a core conceit of time, the longer the worker stays out on the board the more powerful it is. Whether or not that game worked is a different article, but the concept of time being part of the mechanic for the worker placement game had been done previously, and if popular opinion can be believed, had been done very well in Tzolk'in, a game which has been around since 2012.
