Quite interesting but flat presentation
20 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

A series of short films looking at how the creatures and aliens within MIIB were designed. Many were thought up cold but the film looks at the impact of the script on some characters as well as the impact of Rick Baker and his team on the bigger design.

The subject of the creature design is of some interest to anyone who watched MIIB and was amazed by the numbers and scope of aliens that were doing everything from being major characters down to just being in the background. When I watched these shorts I was sort of interested and gave it a try.

However the presentation here is pretty flat - pre-recorded interviews and stock footage edited together. There isn't as much passion as you'd want, but it does have some interest. The design process is pretty interesting, however the process is similar for each alien, even if the detail is different. The problem is that once you've seen two of these shorts then the rest are very similar apart from the specific requirements.

Sonnenfeld and Baker try to bring out some interesting detail but it is clear that they are talking as part of a much bigger interview as opposed to having their brains picked on this subject in particular.

However this is quite interesting for monster freaks or anyone in design, but to be honest they tended to run together in my mind and I didn't learn anything new that stuck in my head.
