Mysteries of the Unseen World Review

At birth every child is bestowed with a mighty super power – the ability to wonder. To goggle in awe at the wide world before them. But wonder is an ability that dissipates with time, weakened by the Kryptonite grind of maturity, wasting through lack of use. Rather than relying upon YouTube clips, Instagram and annual jaunts abroad to sustain us, London’s Science Museum is offering an exciting 3D IMAX experience seemingly tailor-made to exercise our awe: Mysteries of the Unseen World.

With celebrated time-lapse cinematographer Louie Schwartzberg as our expert guide and the inimitable Forest Whitaker our narrator, this transportive educational exploration becomes a roller coaster ride. Dynamic filmmaking partners with cutting edge science to take us into alternate dimensions of time and scale Gene Roddenberry would applaud. And every last astonishing spectacle takes place right here on earth. The air we breath, the sound we make, the mini »

First, we have the Ves, whose main category to look at is “Outstanding Visual Effects in a Visual Effects-Driven Feature Motion Picture,” where we find Gravity and four other nominees that are just going to have to be happy with the fact that they got nominated. This is perhaps the easiest category to call in the entirety of awards season, and I don’t mean just here, but for the Oscar as well (Last year’s winner, Life of Pi, easily took this category before going on to claim the Oscar).

‘Gravity’ Tops Visual Effects Society Nominations

The Visual Effects Society has announced this year’s nominees for the 12th annual VES awards.

As previously announced, the Visionary Award will be presented to Alfonso Cuarón for “Gravity,” which led all films with eight vfx nominations. “Pacific Rim” received six, while “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” and Iron Man 3” received five each.

Those pics were nominated in the “Outstanding Visual Effects in a Visual Effects-Driven Feature” category. In a surprise, “The Lone Ranger” was nominated in feature supporting vfx. Disney’s disastrous Western was quite f/x-driven, though many of its effects were in-camera practical f/x, which aren’t a major focus for the Ves. Other supporting effects nominees include ”Rush,” “The Great Gatsby,” The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,” “The Wolf of Wall Street” and “White House Down.”
