  • What you’re seeing with the ships and planes are called wingtip vortices. Like wren said it’s caused by the pressure differential between the air moving over and under the wing at the same mass flow rate. The top of a airfoil is actually a longer distance for the flow of air to cover and the underside of the airfoil is relatively straight. The flow over the top must leave the trailing edge the same time as the flow from the bottom. This causes the air on the top to speed up and create a zone of low pressure. The air on the bottom of the wing wants to equalize the pressure but is stopped by the wind itself. With the tips of the wing we see a flow resulting in what we call wash out. Where the flow on the underside of the wing desperately attempts to get to the top of the wing and thus takes an angular path outwards. When it comes off the side of the wing, it rushes to the low pressure zone. This happens at ever position of the wing tip relative to its position in space. So as the wing moves forward it leave a spiral of air in the process of equalizing pressure. With faster speeds we see the spiral become smaller in radius and thus create more lift for the wing. This is actually a phenomenon that is impossible to see in 2-D airfoil calculations and created a bit of paradox in the aerospace community when flight and flight calculations were in their early stages. Because in calculation when using the thin airfoil approximations an airfoil would appear to make no lift, but it practice it would, this is do to washout and wing tip vortices. - Graduate Student in Aerospace Engineering

  • IIRC, the Luke cameo literally happened at the last minute. Both Jon Faverau and Dave Filoni thought it would be a really cool cameo towards the end of the production and Kathleen Kennedy agreed.

  • "Theres really passionate people doing things that they love and it really shows" "yeah they're not just doing it for money." ***Smash cuts to Rey*** 🤣🤣🤣👏👏👏 Bravo sirs, bravo

  • Same thing has been done in Zack Snyder's Justice League where they changed Ares' face with an actor of Wonder Woman.

  • Do the league of legends world championships

  • Please do Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba episode 19 - Rui vs Tanjiro

  • It's my theory based on fact Favreau admitted INSANE secrecy about Luke showing up that NO OUTSIDE professional Deepfake body motion facial CGI production company would be hired and even if the in house Lucasfilm people were used barely 2-3 resourced on the rendering mapping etc to explain the quality, expressions & sharpness being less than the Rogue1 Tarkin, BUT it was tons better than the weird Princess Leia balloon stretch animae face from Rog1. Your Luke efforts of actual face great but using a bad wig gutted it making it worse than the one in the show, Shamooks' was better fit into the scene. btw theory this whole vid was FAAAKKED faces of the hosts!! ☺

  • The spaceships in Star Wars mostly shoot plasma, not lasers.

  • The amount of Potter comments compared to Star Wars comments makes me sad. Star Wars fans, we need to step up our game!

  • Can you guys do a review of Walking with Dinosaurs and the special effects they did?

  • The simulation of the ship in the water is good, but it's not physically accurate. Its believable but not realistic. Like those legs of the vessel would have to be so strong and so rigid to behave like that. But that's reviewing from an engineers perspective. Same with pulling it out of the water, you'd never pull that quickly

  • The level of quality Disney delivered with Mandalorian and even WandaVision makes me wish they did the DC movies and even the MK movie!

    • In terms of violence no they wouldn't but if we're talking about quality then 100% they could pull it off!

    • Disney wouldn’t understand DC and mk.

  • can you do a water sim tutorial

  • Look at vision in Wanda vision that had to redo a big part of his face and it still looks good for a tv show

  • Bro look at vision in any effects in Wanda vision because they had to remake a good part of his face and it’s great

  • You guys should make a competition on who can make the best Bollywood edit of American movies only using footage of the American movies

  • We need a review of the seismic charge from boba fetts ship it’s so satisfying

  • "It's not all about the money" (Shows Rey)

  • You guys should react to the Krayt Dragon scenes from the Mandolorian

  • how could you say that young skywalker looked AAAAHH and pretty damn good? it looked like total garbage! low budget movies have had better cgi than that.


  • Ok but like Disney could have just used Sebastian Stan in a wig and saved money and it honestly would have looked better. For tarkin I don’t mind the cgi but I love Sebastian Stan and the resemblance is uncanny

  • You should watch the blur version of the halo 2 cutscenes

  • Harry potter final shot of the 3rd movie with the freeze frame

  • I think the biggest giveaway in the cgi models is that most of the creases, if not all of them, are folds instead. So when they move, they don't retract and react the way creases do in real life. This might also explain why when they're in still, they look very real, almost indistinguishable from real humans, but in motion the difference is gets very apparent.

  • React to the league of extraordinary gentlemen, there is so must cgi in the movie to talk about!

  • They put an insane amount of effort into that shot of Razor Crest especially considering they arguably didn't need to tip into water. They could've just as easily designed a sequence where the ship lands on a hard surface. So much time and money for a kind of ancillary shot which is what makes it all the more impressive.

  • PLEASE REACT TO ANIMUSIC! (Also, maybe try and revive it as well 😜) #React #VFX #Animation #CGI

  • star wars sucks right now but luke could be a new hope... again ;)

  • I will subscribe but only when Wren learns how to use his inside voice 🤷🏽‍♀️

  • Hey, have you ever thought about what the loss of physical media will mean for movies? One example, you know the changes to the Original trilogy? In (probably) less than ten years they'll be able to do that to any show the choose and they'll be able to do it to all copies of the film so even if you notice something strange you won't have anything to compare it to! And this goes for physical media as well, all they'll need to do is requiring you to have an internet connection that automatically download the updates! :/ Edit: Among the pros, I guess is that they'll be able to (practically) patch/bugfix movies, was there something wrong with the effects, did some program update to their VFX software make something so much cooler/realistic or was a staffer in view for a third of a second (nip slip in a bed scene) etc.

  • waited a month to watch this video to not get spoilers.... worth it

  • The more I watch these the more I feel like Clint just doesn't watch anything anymore, lol. He feels like he's my mom when my brothers and I watch sci fi and we show her a cool scene and she just nods and smiles with zero interest. 'uh-huh' lol.

  • We want to see Shrek

  • Critique the The Dragonslayer VFX. Some great stuff from 1980.

  • blizzarddddddddd cutscenes

  • He called me out for being the bathroom with my phone so hard. And I didn't just get in here. This is my 3rd video now. I feel... ashamed :(

  • Those lasers are plasma blasts, so yes, the would expand upon the magnetic containment failing on impact

  • No one uses lasers in Star Wars. In universe, It's all bolts of plasma and superheated metal fragments. All the ranged weapons in Star Wars fire projectiles with mass.

  • Again star wars uses energized plasma bolts that have a charge with tibana gas. They are bolts of pure energy.

  • Bad vfx suggestions. 1. League of extraordinary gentlemen, the fight with geckle and hide

  • I can’t think of more examples offhand but there was definitely a “rag doll epidemic” in 2010s comedy’s and the scene that comes to mind is the Air Bag Prank in Neighbors. Not necessarily bad but I remember it being obvious on the first watch. I know there’s more in recent movies, if anyone can help me out

  • Harry Potter scenes requests: - Basilic scene - Harry and Buckbeak - Lupin turns into a werewolf - The dragon task in the goblet of fire - Dumbledore vs Voldemort

  • Please react to King Kong

    • By the way I'm talking about the newest one not Godzilla vs Kong by the way

  • multi billon dollar company vs little guys with office movie actors

  • I think Darth Vader is the face (or rather mask) of Star Wars. He is a big part of the original trilogy, in the prequel trilogy it is about Anakin (kinda) who became Darth Vader, he is also in the newer trilogy (kinda), there’s a comic series about him and who can forget his “Luke I am your father” and his breathing.

  • Can you guys react to Ready Player One?!? Any scene would be awesome. Or The Shining sections!

  • I feel like im the guy growing up seeing all this newer stuff and thinking "Thats so amazing, it would be a dream to do this stuff" which makes me wonder just how much farther this technology will go in my time.

  • You know CGI is good when its so subtle that you dont even think about it. It gets to a point where they look so natural you have to do a double-take and really see these shots for what they are, otherwise you'll just gloss over it because it seems so natural to your brain. Very weird, and even more interesting.

  • This episode made me watch the entire series first so it wouldn’t spoil anything lmao thanks it was amazing

  • My bro was in those movies, so I spent some time on set. I'm not a HP fan but there was a set with a ton of mirrors in it! Sorry, I don't know the scene., lols Crew were completely removed from it in the final print though. I was super impressed with that! I'm guessing a LOT of roto work! Poor buggers.

  • I would love to hear your take on Shin Godzilla.

  • Harry Potter Scene request, When Ron and Harry Get the car stuck in the tree (in The Chamber Of Secrets)

  • train system from HP7.2

  • Call Ian Hubert for upcoming VFX react

  • For Harry Potter scenes Dobbys first appearance Troll scene from the first movie And the quidditch scenes

  • One of the most obvious things about Luke being deepfaked is that Mark uses his eyebrows A LOT when he acts. I don't think Luke's eyebrows budged once.

    • Honestly Luke is so ugly, they dropped a 2D matte with basic deformation. It's not a deepfake, his nose has always the same parallax.

  • Harry potter ridiculous spell scene, also many of the scenes in fantastic beasts and where to find them

  • Guys, love all your work. I'd love to see you react to Star Trek, anything from some of the super-cheap effects from the original series, to the films, to the modern era shows. I don't have any particular shots in mind, but because it's a franchise that has been around for over 60 years, across different media, with all sorts of different budgets, it would make for a cool comparison. Plus if you're aware of anything unusual or groundbreaking they did along the way, that would be great too. Whatever you choose to do, however, just keep doing it! Also, as a huge South Park fan, I somehow had no idea about Sassy Justice until I saw this video, so thank you for that as well! Great work

  • Honestly... I thought that was done with a real prop model they had made, that's how realistic it is. I never once thought it was cgi in the least bit

  • That Luke Skywalker face. Wtf

  • Please watch the exigency

  • For Harry Potter basically any of the challenges from goblet of fire. The Wesley Joke shop scene. Fluffy in Sorcerers Stone. The Basilisk. Werewolf transformation in Prisoner of Azkhban. Sectum Sempra spell and healing in Half Blood Prince. Overall compassion from the earlier movies and the later ones

    • React to the fantastic beasts

  • In Fantastic Beasts 2 there is a scene where the girl turns into a snake and I'd love to see you guys react to it :)

  • No fucking care taken when showing ine of the biggest fucking spoilers in Season 2. Don't you guys ever fucking do this again. I genuinely considered unsubscribing because you were so careless with this.

  • Anyone know the tune under the vpn ad?

  • I love that they using real models in the movie.

    • For the HP video, you should look at the scene from Goblet of Fire where Sirius talks to Harry through the fireplace

  • IT’S PLASMA NOT LASERS!!!!!! My inner Star Wars nerd is killing me right now.

  • Honestly I can’t even tell the difference between 30 FPS and 60 FPS all vfx is good vfx to me

  • The whomping williow scene from harry potter 3. Its so awkward


  • Honestly Luke is so ugly, they dropped a 2D matte with basic deformation. It's not a deepfake, his nose has always the same parallax.

  • Getting spoiled by the thumbnail in my scrolling pissed me off

  • the shot of the razor crest being pulled out of the water is so good i never even considered the fact that it was cg until watching this video.

  • I love you guys but i have to unsub just to avoid spoilers...

  • were able to do that, he also interacts with harry a lot

  • don't tell me Clint didn't see the mandalorian. how further is he up into his own ass???????

  • React to the fantastic beasts

  • no the dragon scene??

  • The troll scene in the 1st movie

    • React to the vfx of The Frighteners by Peter Jackson, staring Michael J Fox

  • Please cover the Voldemort rebirth scene from Goblet of Fire when he first gets his new body. That scene blows my mind when his head slowly grows into its final form

  • For the HP video, you should look at the scene from Goblet of Fire where Sirius talks to Harry through the fireplace

  • Harry Potter Scene: Fifth movie, when Dumbledore and Voldemort fight each other. Fire vs water, glass turning to sand and stuff.

  • You guys should get in make up artists in and break down how you do really complex make up stuff, like fake skin, or broken limbs or crazy prostectics

  • I wish you guys would have done a full deep dive on Kung Fu Hustle.

  • React to velocipastor

  • I have said many times. The Mandalorian is just a big budget fan show. It shows in every single detail. The absolute love and craft for the show is outstanding.

  • 13:38 was that a shot fired at the sequel trilogy lol

  • please please please react to the CGI in the Disney movie Dinosaurs!

  • You guys should do some of the CGI from Sweet Home on Netflix

  • I'd like to see the explaining of the scene in 'HP and Azkaban's Prisoner' when camera slides through the mirror at lesson about the boggart

  • I wanna see you guys talk about Lupin turning into the werewolf in Prisoner of Azkaban

  • Can’t wait for Harry Potter

  • React to the vfx of The Frighteners by Peter Jackson, staring Michael J Fox

  • May the pores be with you...

    • What’s that beat you’re using in the vpn ad? It kinda bangs

  • You guys should react to the whole Sam Raimi Spiderman trilogy!

    • Uncharted - live action fan film (2018) - Nathan Fillon

  • Can you react to the Burton vs. Nola fight scene from Banshee tv series, Season 3, Episode 3?

  • Two minute papers would love this I bet.

  • Harry Potter scenes? Yes.

  • I actually didn't hate the young luke. Yeah it's not the best and the shadows look weird, but at least it isn't Leah from Rouge One.
