I love practical make-up effects. The men and women who work in this industry are some of the most creative and artistic people in the business. I think that without them movies would not be the force that they are today. I applaud them and their had work. If you think that the oscar they give to best make-up effects in a motion picture is just some place filler award until you can get to the best actor and actress award, then you don't get the fact that without the make-up effects these actors could not do their jobs. Movies don't revolve around one part of the process, it takes a combined effort to pull off a Hollywood film. So, thank you to all the make-up effects artists. To quote Will Smith, "You make our movies look good."

I say all that to say this, today pictures from the production of Ridley Scott's Prometheus were posted online by Creatures Inc.'s Conor O'Sullivan on his Facebook page "Here". Can I just say "WOW"!!!! When I saw the film, I was sure that the Engineers were at least partially done with CGI. Boy, was I wrong. These are fantastic and where did they find a dude as big as an Engineer (Ridley Scott has someone breeding giants in a secret facility in the Nevada Desert)? Look at the detail on those suits (looks awfully like a Xenomorph to me), just absolutely beautiful in their design and execution. I could go on and on... (Wait, please don't, we can only take so much before we become extras on the set of "The Walking Dead", and yeah, that's a good show).

But the reason that I've brought you all here, tonight (I've always wanted to say that), is to show you a very special picture that may hint at things to come on the home video release. The picture in question is of the Engineer at the beginning of the film as he prepares to sacrifice himself to seed this planet with life (we assume it's Earth, but Sir Scott ain't sayin'). If you look behind him (I'm making this sound like its hard to see him, it's not), you will see what is being called an Elder Engineer. That's awesome on so many levels. Engineers can grow old and maybe not sacrifice themselves to create life. Maybe some of them are the facilitators of the ritual? Who knows? But this is just great to think about. If you have not seen this movie, Go now, so it can pimp slap that smart mouth "Madagascar 3: Electric Boogaloo" into a completely different universe (sorry, that was over the top and I must contain my feelings, for I am Vulcan). Nevertheless, go go go go go, NOW!!
