Today my dealing with the Unreal Engine 5 - a prototype of an ultrasonic energy weapon with control of the power of a directed energy beam. I'm not an effects master, so it doesn't matter at this stage. The stronger the impact of the projectile, the more energy it needs

Though mostly light-hearted, has been known to delve into true horror. This Sunday, your weekly monster movie watch party will be featuring just such a film.

SON OF GODZILLA (1967), featuring perhaps the single most terrifying creature ever put to foam rubber; Minilla.

Against all reason and good taste, this film is still available on Tubi, or you can download from Archive.org: https://archive.org/details/son-of-godzilla

There's also a subbed version: https://archive.org/details/Godzilla-Showa-Era/08.+Son+of+Godzilla+(1967).mp4

"There is only one way to get the attention of the Jedi. Slaughter of the innocent. Mercilessly and without compromise".

All shot practically using figures and miniatures only digitally added element was the light saber beam.

Hrm.

Interesting choice. I can think of a few other people who have some Trek experience that might be able to produce a Star Trek film, but ok.

I'm sure up at the top there's totally different chiefs in charge of TV versus film and they don't interact with each other at all and don't want to. It's a bummer.

@virtualbri I am not a fan of prequels. Why does the Star Trek franchise continue to make prequels for an audience that is interested in futurism and exploration??

In Our Stars (The Doomed Earth, Book 1) is Jack Campbell's new series, separate from his Lost Fleet novels (which are a staple of my summer reading list).

For all the wonderful writers contributing to this shared-world anthology, it really reads like so many extra yards of the Jerry Cornelius novels. The best writing is by Hilary Bailey, who turned a lovely sentence.

I'm not feeling well today, but I have a rule, every day I learn something new in Unreal Engine, so I played with the materials, this is a forest for me, in which I get lost very quickly, but the topic is interesting. My goal is to make energy weapon like in the series Beacon 23

Here's a good one: Phantom Menace Theatrical versus 4K release.

Does the digital noise reduction hammer the details, especially in faces? Is the new color shift to blue better? You decide
