Maltin On Movies


Wearing motion capture. Yes. What is that? Like. Looks super comfortable, and it's just not even a delight for John carber. I was I was on like stilts this high. And been can't be camera on my back and the dots and the ridiculous unflattering, you know, Mushin capsule apps you in the desert for practically five months, all my. And then when they when the review comes out someone says, you know, ours carcass voiced by Willem Dafoe. How did I thought? Okay. Oh how movies? They don't and they don't they don't have to. I don't know how cards made but I can still drive in. It can get me someplace. But what's that? Like, it's. Pretending it's task. It's task. It's it's challenge. You know, we used to play basketball on stilts to try to get good with them. You know, I like it. I mean, I I'm like doing structured actions and having something come out of it. It's.
