R.I.P. Stan Winston

Multiple award-winning special effects and make-up artist Stan Winston died last night at the age of 62.

This is a real loss to the world of moviemaking. Winston's groundbreaking SFX wizardry could be seen in such films as the Terminator movies, Aliens, Jurassic Park, Iron Man and many, many more, a lot of them considered classics of science fiction, fantasy and horror. His work on John Carpenter's The Thing in particular was astounding.

Sad news.

I feel like my blog is turning into the obits page.
