With state of the art technology at our disposal, we know that visual effects in feature films are pretty much always going to look good. That’s why the bad special effects seem to stick out even more like a sore thumb nowadays.
But in the world of television, smaller budgets still make it a little difficult to create convincing special effects, even on bigger budget, sci-fi shows that require effects to immerse the audience in the story properly. That’s why it’s impressive to see how good many of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD visual effects have turned out to be on the small screen.
Check out a VFX breakdown from the show after the jump, but beware of potential spoilers since this is from the second season of the show. Watch below! Read More »
A couple months ago there was an effort to develop an Agents of SHIELD spin-off series starring SHIELD characters Bobbi Morse (aka Mockingbird) and Lance Hunter, played by Adrianne Palicki and Nick Hunter, respectively.
That spin-off effort died, or was at least wounded, as there was still talk of it having a future. The big issue seemed to be frugality on the part of the network brass, who wanted to get a little more blood out of the characters on SHIELD. Now the two characters are indeed getting their own spin-off pilot. This incarnation is called Marvel’s Most Wanted, and it will feature the two characters on post-SHIELD adventures. Read More »
It says a great deal about Kyle MacLachlan‘s work in Pixar’s Inside Out that I didn’t even recognize him at first as the voice of Riley’s father. I just accepted the character as exactly who the film presents him to be, without thinking of the actor behind the role. Some of that comes from the fact that MacLachlan isn’t part of the group of actors who regularly do voice roles, so I don’t expect him in animation. But he’s no stranger to animation (he was Superman!), and the strange rhythms of voice work clearly agree with him.
“Strange rhythms” could be a description for the actor’s career overall. After the David Lynch films Dune and Blue Velvet, MacLachlan created the unforgettable Special Agent Dale Cooper for Twin Peaks, and has gone on to build other memorable roles, from The Hidden to Portlandia, Sex and the City, Desperate Housewives, and even Showgirls. “Predictable” is not a word anyone could apply to MacLachlan’s choices.
In person, MacLachlan is exactly the thoughtful and attentive, quirky guy one might hope he’d be. Our conversation, prompted by his work in Inside Out, revolved around his personal quirks and rhythms, and touches upon a diverse set of career milestones, from his Pixar work to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and, of course, Twin Peaks.
