Default Science of the Movies

Hey Guys,

Just having a flick throught the TV channels last night and noticed a programme called the Science of the Movies on discovery Science.

Pretty good as an overview and well worth a watch as an insight.

I have seen it but the guy who presents it is someone I find distracting in an annoying kind of way, sorry can't help it.

Love Discovery and National Geographic channel however, it's always better than dancing with morons or reallife crap

The host can be somewhat annoying sometimes but the places he goes is awesome. There was one episode where he went to ILM and they showed how they did the whole ocean fighting scene in Pirates of The Caribbean, another showed how they did the helicopters that exploded in The Day The Earth Stood Still. Really neat stuff at how the big studios are doing 3d/vfx.
