This week, Brian and John try to analyze the age old conflict between nerds…..Star Trek vs Star Wars…..I mean Practical FX vs CGI. Yes a war that has been waged on between cinephiles in the lobbies of movie theaters across the world since 1993. But why do these techniques in creating the fantastical have to be polar opposites? Why is there so much love for what arguably are less realistic and more expensive practical fx and so much vitrol and critique over computer generated visual effects? Is there room in the big tent of filmmaking for both of these camps? We’ll find out today! Fair warning, we’re gonna go deep into filmmaking lore and there may be a bit of an unscheduled political rant as well. So grab your hard drive and air bladders as we dive into the ultimate slugfest between Practical FX and CGI!
