Nice Podcast Guys. I skipped the G vs K bit as I haven't seen it yet, but was back for the CGI chat this morning. The Lion King I think is the best CGI I have seen if you ignore tghe talking animals. Otherwise, I could easily have believed it was footage of real Animals

Great podcast guys, while most CG is thankfully above the level of the Scorpion King in the The Mummy Returns these days, I'm always in awe of the invisible CG, especially in Fincher productions. The VFX breakdowns on Mindhunter where outdoor locations are rebuild in CG to made them period accurate are jaw dropping.

For the people complaining about the lack of human characters in Gozilla Vs. Kong, Colossal from a few years ago finally combined a Kaiju with a depiction of alcoholism.

Listening now and @Casimir Harlow calling Kong the 'John Wick' of the monster world has to be the comment of the podcast for me :)
