    1. One of these days I'm going to have to sit down and watch all 6+ hours of the documentaries!

  2. There's something viscerally satisfying about this old-school modelmaking that CGI often fails to capture. The griminess, the detailed, cluttered spaceship interiors (and exteriors) that are a testament to a thousand model kits raided for gubbins. "Alien" was a grimy movie about everyday spacers on a grimy spacecraft and I think the remarkable FX suited it perfectly.

    I don't remotely have time to watch the videos yet, but I will bookmark this for later perusal (in about 18 years...)

    1. I agree... Model making in movies seems to be a dying art.
