Gamers, prepare to be amazed. After you pick your jaw up from the floor, allow Lewis Hilsenteger to walk you through his insane gaming PC setup. It starts with a 42.5-inch 4K LG Display, flanked by a pair of 24-inch portrait displays to completely immerse you in the action. It's powered by a Xidex PC with a PlayStation input. At the heart of the station is an Imperator reclining chair, fitted with a refrigerator and snack stand for those long nights of Far Cry 5. But playing in a throne fit for a gaming king doesn't come cheap. Altogether, it'll set you back about $30,000.
Although the CGI in Black Panther has received some flack from critics, it was still a piece of what made the movie the ninth highest grossing film of all time. The man overseeing it all was Method Studios' Visual Effects Supervisor Daryl Sawchuk. In this behind the scenes look, Sawchuk breaks down the digital work that went into creating the suits for both Black Panther and Kilmonger as well as their intense final fight scene.
In 1910, Russian composer Igor Stravinsky invented what would become known as the orchestra hit. Fast-forward to 1979, and Peter Vogel and partner Kim Ryrie would introduce the Fairlight CMI to the music world — and launch the orchestra hit into the pop music lexicon. The Fairlight was a synth with a built-in sampler, allowing musicians to record a sample and play it back at any pitch. The sampler would go on to become a mainstay of pop, from Peter Gabriel to Michael Jackson to Bruno Mars.
Bourne. Jason Bourne. Although many of you are yelling at currently yelling at your screen, making a case for why the Bourne trilogy is one of the greatest action franchises of all time, the problem with these films aren't the plot or acting, it's the camera work. Before 2004, action scenes were crisp, wide-angle shots. Now, many of the films you see today are full of shaky cameras and fast cuts inspired by the series. Although the films revolutionized the genre, they also spawned many poor interpretations of the style of filmmaking found in modern films today.
