    I think this one was my favorite of season 2. And if this wasn't in it, then I'd be forced to go with Drowned Giant. What put this one over the top for me besides the incredible realism in the graphics and animation was the confluence of sci-fi elements, human emotion, and ultra violence. It was very "Heavy Metal" esque for me and I liked that over the pure sci-fi existential musings of Drowned Giant.

    I tried watching Love, Death + Robots, but even though I love sci-fi, it was too dark and violent for me. The only episode I really enjoyed was the one about the evolution of a civilisation in a fridge - I thought that was really good

    As an experienced 3D artist, over time, I lost the ability to watch films with CGI, not thinking at this moment about how it was made. And for the first time in a long time, watching this episode, from the first second I was a simple spectator and, like a child, enjoyed the incredible story and visuals. These are precious moments! Thank you!

    Beyond the Aquila Rift is a bit too dark but still, it’s my #1 favourite in Season 1. It deserves a sequel/prequel/sidequel. Snow in the Desert could be a sidequel IMO.

    This and Pop Squad are why I can't be as mad as everyone else about how Season 2 turned out, truly beautiful. I really can appreciate all the work that must have gone into it and it left me in a state of awe. These two had everything, and I loved the variety everything else brought. Even though it was only half as long, I feel like this batch was stronger because these two episodes brought such a strong emotional core we never felt in that first volume.

    The "realism" was exactly why I didn't like the episode. Why do you CGI real people? It must've been very very very difficult to make, but unnecessary. Same goes for all of the episodes with fake realism.

    I really believe that Netflix should focus more and should alot more resources to such content rather than their trashy coming of age romances. The genre of dystopia/thriller/mystery/mind-games/witty is still not tapped to the potential it pursues. There's whole lot of audience they can attract just by adding those sorts of shows, I can guarantee that. Black Mirror, I believe, has topped in that zone and so should other shows. So I really plead in some way to Netflix to be a revolutionary and bring in more shows like Black Mirror, Love, Death + Robots and so. Thank you

    My favorite episode by all means. But, was there no way to confirm that GnRH comes from hypothalamus, and Gonadotropins (FSH & LH) from pituitary and Testosterone from Testes. If the story book had that mistake, the show would have corrected it. It's so bad, when a Scifi doesn't follow science.

    I was a bit bummed we didn't get a lot of 2D animation this volume but it couldn't have been easy to get these projects done during covid especially with global talent. Snow in the Desert was definitely a highlight and I'm still wondering if it's connected to Pop Squad since those people can extend their life which is why they wanted Snow in this episode.

  83. jmalmsten

    jmalmsten8 päivää sitten

    @Mahmoud Fekih If you want to see Unreal in the movie sets you can look at what Favreu has been doing in Mandalorian. The backgrounds that are on the ginormous Volume LED screens behind the actors in most shots are Unreal... Though I think they mostly have been using UE4 since UE5 is a bit too new and unpredictable as Ive understood it. Especially for when they shot S2. I'm guessing they'll have moved to UE5 for S3 or whatever the next flagship Volume production ends up being. So in general. Yes. Post-rendering will be preferable for a lot of occasions. But for live-action composites where the aim is to do as little post work as possible. Realtime rendering engines will pop up more and more as both hardware and software mature in the coming years. If the assets are ready during the shoot. Then it makes a lot of sense to use LED screens for stuff that used to be rear-projections and similar stuff. I'd love to see what could be done with an LED dome screen for miniature effects like was done extensively for the first two Terminator films.

  85. OverDev Modding

    OverDev Modding9 päivää sitten

    no why should they? UE only makes sense if you do something in real time. UE 5 looks great yes but it will not reach the realism of a proper offline rendered scene
