VES Awards Live Blog: 14th Annual Visual Effects Society Ceremony

The 14th annual VES Awards are being handed out tonight at the Beverly Hilton, and Deadline is covering it live. The Visual Effects Society will dole out hardware in 23 film and TV categories. Patton Oswalt is hosting for the fifth time.

Star: Wars: The Force Awakens leads all films with seven nominations, and the leader on the TV side is HBO’s Game Of Thrones, which crashes in with nine.

Follow the action here.

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20167:57 pm

We’re under way from the Beverly Hilton.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20167:58 pm

The director of the WES just accidentally called Ridley Scott “Sir Ridley Thomas”, which caused much laughter as he was corrected, apologized and embarassingly moved on.

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20167:59 pm

Visual Effect Society Eric Roth onstage: “Without using any special goggles or headsets, just turn to your right or left and you’ll see the most amazing visual artists on this or any planet.”

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20167:59 pm

He began his speech with a boozy (and fun) tribute to the work of visual effects workers throughout the industry. However, he maybe had a misstep referencing the current diverity debate. Saying that the effects industry is diverse because it thinks on a global scale (referencing the dispersed VFX workforce), he then thanked several of tonight’s sponsors from tech and VFX companies around the world.


Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:00 pm

And now, our host the inestimable Patton Oswalt is coming onstage. Cue me freaking out.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:01 pm

“wow! Keep it going for Eli Roth, ladies and gentlemen, the fabulous Sir Eli Roth coming out here. Wow, how do you follow the electric excitement… I keep telling people “don’t let him open”, you can’t have JOhn Denver following Black Sabbath!” – Patton Oswalt, being hilarious and riffing on Roth’s error.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:01 pm

“I”m your host, Imperator Pudgiosa!”

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:02 pm

2015 has been crazy in terms of special effects. The Revenant, my god The Revenant, with Andy Serkis playing Leonardo DiCaprio fighting a real bear, how did he pull that off? It looked so real!”

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:03 pm

“Also straight from their win at the AVN Awards, Anomalisa ladies and gentlemen.” Oswalt then referenced the film’s oral sex scene. Big laughs.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:04 pm

Referencing Mad Max: Fury Road’s feminist themes and discussion of sexual assault and patriarchy and rape, Oswalt calls it “an amazing documentary about life in 2015!”

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:04 pm

“San Andreas tonight… it takes place in LA. You don’t need to have a giant earthquake be a disaster. You could just make it “It’s drizzling out,” people would have the same level of freaking out!” Oswalt, again.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:08 pm

Patton talks at length about Star Wars: “LIsten – I’ve had a lot of harsh things to say about the prequels,… but here’s the miracle that JJ Abrams pulled off. When Star Wars came out in 1977, it was like your amazing party friend who always had great coke and hookers. Then he comes back in 1980 with even better coke, then disappears for three years. Then he reappears three years later and he’s got that crazy 80s coke. But then 15 years later he comes back, now he’s sobered up up, he’s really into religion and government, and you’re like ‘hey man let’s do that coke’, and he’s like ‘no, let’s talk about where the coke came from, let’s get into these hooker’s back story.” BIG LAUGHS by the way. “And now his nephew comes along, his nephew has amazing weed and he’s just fun and you’re like, now we’re in good hands. So thank you JJ Abrams for the great coke. CINEMATICALLY, my God!”

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:10 pm

Oswalt kills it with this line: “There is a diversity problem in our industry, and way more than other aspects of it, this awards show does something about it. We have white shut ins that are abused by their producers, black shut ins that are abused by their producers, Asian, latino, it doesn’t matter who you are as long as you’re being screeamed at and told to get it in a week early. It’s all about diversity!”

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:10 pm

Oswalt wraps it up, and now the first presenter, and it’s Terry Crews!

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:11 pm

“Man, coke and hookers that was funny… I am honored to be here tonight. I owe a lot to the visual effects community. People in hollywood don’t know this but I began my career as a visual effect. Nobody looks this amazing who wasn’t designed by professionals” – Crews.

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20168:13 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Supporting Visual Effects in a Photoreal Episode

Vikings; To the Gates
Dominic Remane
Bill Halliday
Paul Wishart
Ovidiu Cinazan
Paul Byrne

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:14 pm

You know what Erik? I’m good with this. Vikings is awesome.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:14 pm

Appropriately, one of the winners onstage is wearing a kilt. YES I KNOW KILTS ARE NOT NORDIC. I mean manliness.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:16 pm

Crews is presenting the second award – “Here are the nominees whose work stood out for not standing out, he says.” Well put. In other news I stayed up too late watching Bridesmaids on Friday night (rockstar life here) and had completely forgotten Crews is in that movie. And is great BTW.

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20168:17 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Supporting Visual Effects in a Photoreal Feature

The Revenant
Rich McBride
Ivy Agregan
Jason Smith
Nicolas Chevallier
Cameron Waldbauer

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:18 pm

They are keeping these acceptance speeches as clipped and speedy as the Oscars. Waiting to see who the first winner will be to get played offstage.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:20 pm

And now, next presenter, Erika Christensen. 

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20168:22 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Compositing in a Photoreal Episode

Game of Thrones; Hardhome
Eduardo Díaz
Guillermo Orbe
Oscar Perea
Inmaculada Nadela

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:23 pm

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20168:25 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Compositing in a Photoreal Commercial

SSE; Pier
Gary Driver
Greg Spencer
Grant Connor

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:25 pm

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20168:28 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Compositing in a Photoreal Feature

The Revenant; Bear Attack
Donny Rausch
Alan Travis
Charles Lai
TC Harrison

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20168:28 pm

That’s two for the Revenant already

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:28 pm

The Revevant is cleaning up tonight. Could this be the film that finally ends the “Whoever plays Leo in a biopic will win an Oscar for the role before Leo wins one” meme? 

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:29 pm

For his sake, I hope so. But I will miss that meme so so much.

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20168:29 pm

They’ll find a way to snub him and give it to the bear.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:30 pm

That would be the greatest ever Academy Awards.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:30 pm

Next presenter is Michael Pena! He comes out to the Star Wars fanfare.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:32 pm

“OK, teleprompter time! Every industry has its foundation myths, areospace has the wright brothers and kitty hawk… and visual effects has Gweorge Lucas and Industrial Light and Magic… it was their job to make the impossible, possible. I think most of you know by now they pulled it off. And that’s what they’ve continued to do over and over again for over 40 years.” He mentions several ILM effects film, including “The Martian – thanks for the job Ridley. and Ant-Man. Both of those are really good.” And now cue the tribute to ILM.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:33 pm

OH I realize I dropped the lede. Pena is presenting the tribute to ILM. Knowledge is power, Deadline readers!

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:35 pm

and now the Chairman of the VES to present the award for Outstanding Models. He makes a very… politely received joke about fashion models. Ahem.

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20168:37 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Models in a Photoreal or Animated Project

Star Wars: The Force Awakens; BB-8
Joshua Lee
Matthew Denton
Landis Fields
Cyrus Jam

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20168:37 pm

My kids will get a kick out of that. 

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:37 pm

The winner of outstanding models goes to the clear, obvious winner. BB-8 is one of the most incredible practical effects I’ve ever seen up close. So much personality in a ball with a hat. 

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:39 pm

Separate from any narrative criticisms reserved for The Force Awakens, the puppetry, props and modeling was almost tear-inducing for me. It’s absurd to talk about how something took you back to childhood, but it did.

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20168:39 pm

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:39 pm

Portia Doubelday now presenting outstanding created environment in an episode, commercial or real time project.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:40 pm

Erik clearly knows the way to my heart. I LOVE YOU BB-8!

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20168:41 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Created Environment in an Episode, Commercial, or
Real-Time Project

Game of Thrones; City of Volantis
Dominic Piche
Christine Leclerc
Patrice Poissant
Thomas Montminy-Brodeur

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:41 pm

Those of you not here can’t hear it, but the music supervisor for the evening has amazing twee taste in dance pop and I love them for it.

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20168:42 pm

By the way, Ross, I’m taping the hockey game — so no spoilers.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:42 pm

YOu clearly think I’m someone who likes Hockey. I’m sorry for misleading you ;)

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20168:43 pm

Walked right into that one. 

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20168:45 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Created Environment in an Animated Feature

The Good Dinosaur; The Farm
David Munier
Matthew Webb
Matt Kuruc
Tom Miller

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:47 pm

I’m kind of surprised that the Good Dinosaur beat out Inside Out. The world of The Good Dinosaur is expansive and gorgeous, but I felt more connected personally to Imagination Land in Inside Out. Obviously this is why I don’t work in the VFX industry. And I suppose considering the lackluster response Good Dinosaur got upon release it’s great to see it recognized among its peers.

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20168:49 pm

Agree, Ross. Sometimes Good Dino wide shots looked like live-action.

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20168:49 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Created Environment in a Photoreal Feature

Star Wars: The Force Awakens; Falcon Chase / Graveyard
Yanick Dusseault
Mike Wood
Justin van der Lek
Quentin Marmier

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:50 pm

The Force Awakens becomes tonight’s second multi-winner. Now if we can get Kylo Ren to fight that bear.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:51 pm

Previous post is hilarious because the final act of The Force Awakens takes place in an icy waste just like the Revenant! 

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:51 pm

Oswalt is back: “Folks we are one eight of the way through the show, we are blazing through, the doors are locked, try to conserve water.” 

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20168:51 pm

How about Chewbacca vs. the Bear in a cage match?

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:52 pm

Oswalt once again mocks Roth’s error. Mentioning the tribute to ILM, he says “I hope you put together as interesting a package for Ridley Scoot. Mr. Ridley Scoot, he has so many amazing movies.”

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:53 pm

Chewie would win, hands down. He has thaty bowcaster. Though the bear might be Chewie’s mitochondrial eve. 

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20168:54 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Visual Effects in a Special Venue Project

Fast and Furious: Supercharged
Chris Shaw
Alysia Cotter
Ben White
Diego Guerrero

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:55 pm

Fast And Furious Supercharged acceptance speech was played on by the latest from Tame Impala. This DJ has excellent taste people. Excellent. Also, I hope this comforts Vin since Fast Seven wasn’t nominated for Best Picture.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:56 pm

Now it’s time for the nominees for virtual cinematography. 

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20168:58 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Virtual Cinematography in a Photoreal Project

Star Wars: The Force Awakens; Falcon Chase / Graveyard
Paul Kavanagh
Colin Benoit
Susumu Yukuhiro
Greg Salter

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:58 pm

Star Wars winners played onstage by The Weekend “I Can’t Feel My Face”. God dang I love this dj so much. 

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20168:59 pm

Star Wars now has the most wins of any film tonight, and given the loud cheers in the room every time it’s mentioned, I’m not shocked. Also, I saw the movie so I’m also not shocked because of that.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20169:00 pm

Sadly, they missed the opportunity to have Anthony Daniels come out to trash-talk The Revenant in character as Three P-0.

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20169:01 pm

What is this “Star Wars”? I can’t keep up with your little French indie pics, Ross.

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20169:02 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Visual Effects in a Real-Time Project

The Order: 1886
Nathan Phail-Liff
Dana Jan
Anthony Vitale
Scot Andreason

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20169:03 pm

GIven how abused and exploited in terms of pay versus hours, time and job security – it’s rough work people – the creative side of the video game industry is, I’m glad to see The Order win this one.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20169:04 pm

Oswalt is back, making yet another joke at Roth’s expense by mispronouncing Ridley Scott’s name. Honestly, it never gets old.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20169:05 pm

Now the student award is being presented.

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20169:08 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Visual Effects in a Student Project

Citipati
Andreas Feix
Francesco Faranna

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20169:09 pm

The nominees for student projects were CitipatiSkål, Jagon and Korser.

Huh?

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20169:09 pm

By the way, I haven’t been quoting from the acceptance speeches very much. Suffice to say, these people really value their team members and humbly acknowledge the sheer number of people who help this work come together. (Not snark by the way, just saving time.)

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20169:13 pm

Scott Ross just introduced the tribute to Syd Mead before they give him the VES Visionary Award. “The oracle from Saint Paul Minnesota has designed movies… luxury automobiles, consumer products… theme parks, and you get the idea. Pretty outrageous,” says Ross. “Often times his only brief was to design something that no one had seen before. And time after time, he’s done just that… I’ve personally had the pleasure of watching this man give so much of his time to young artists… and while his creativity takes him to other worlds, he has his feet firmly planted in the here and now.” 

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20169:14 pm

Scott Ross goes on: “The best advice I’ve heard him give young artists is this — “If they don’t pay you, it’s a hobby.” Don’t we all know that. This man is the whole package, he’s brilliant, talented, caring, funny, and practical.”

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20169:15 pm

Mead has worked on so many projects it’s hard to keep count. 

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20169:15 pm

Syd’s onstage now.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20169:20 pm

“this is phenomenal,” he says to a standing ovation. “Thank you for recieving this award. It’s at once humbling and exhilarating.”

He mentions the first film he worked on start to finish was Blade Runner, thanking Ridley Scott and others, then pays tribute to his life partner Roger, who Mead says, has worked with him “40 years to stablizie our personal, social and business lives.” He ended his speech with a nod to the VES. “So thank you again visual effects society. I admire the expertise in this room. It’s the best in the world.”

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20169:21 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Effects Simulations in an Episode, Commercial, or
Real-Time Project

Game of Thrones; Hardhome
David Ramos
Antonio Lado

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20169:24 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Effects Simulations in an Animated Feature

The Good Dinosaur
Stephen Marshall
Magnus Wrenninge
Michael Hall
Hemagiri Arumugam

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20169:25 pm

That’s twice The Good Dinosaur has topped Inside Out.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20169:26 pm

The Good Dinosaur didn’t connect with audiences but the VFX community loves it. 

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20169:27 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Effects Simulations in a Photoreal Feature

Mad Max: Fury Road; Toxic Storm
Dan Bethell
Clinton Downs
Chris Young

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20169:28 pm

Mad Max finally wins one, and honestly I’m a bit surprised it hasn’t clearned up more. Then again, there isn’t a “HOLY CRAP DID YOU SEE THAT CAR” trophy tonight”

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20169:29 pm

Oswalt comes onstage as Ziggy Stardust is playing off The Good Dinosaur team, and says “Don’t play Bowie! It makes me sad he’s gone. Can’t you guys get together and CGI him back? Too soon?”

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20169:29 pm

Dennis Haysbert and his dulcet tones arrive onstage to loud applause from the women in the audience. And from me (in my heart.)

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20169:31 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Animated Performance in an Episode, Commercial, or
Real-Time Project

SSE; Pier; Orangutan
Jorge Montiel
Sauce Vilas

Inside Out; Joy
Shawn Krause
Tanja Krampfert
Jacob Merrell
Alexis Angelidis

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20169:34 pm

Finally, Inside Out wins one, making three wins total for Pixar tonight. Sorry, every other animated film released this year. We’re looking into the Oscars future tonight, and I hope I don’t look like an idiot for saying that in three weeks.

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20169:35 pm

You won’t.

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20169:36 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Animated Performance in a Photoreal Feature

The Revenant; The Bear
Matt Shumway
Gaelle Morand
Karin Cooper
Leandro Estebecorena

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20169:37 pm

We’re back to a three way tie between the Revenant, Star Wars, and Game of Thrones for most awards tonight.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20169:38 pm

ILM did effects for the Revenant, and for lots of other nominees/winners tonight. Between that and Pixar wins, Disney is basically the top dog tonight.

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20169:39 pm

Looks like a dogfight for most hardware overall tonight.

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20169:40 pm

Star Wars, Game of Thrones and Good Dinosaur all nominated in one more category. Revenant is not.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20169:42 pm

Kate Mara introduced the tribute to Ridley Scott. “In a field not known for longevity, Ridley Scott has now [had] five successful decades,” she says. “We all know his work: Alien, Blade Runner, Thelma and Louise… and most recently The Martian” LOUD CHEERS. “That’s not bad Ridley… Ridley gives visual artists who work with him the chance to work at the top of their game… film, tv, commercials, he’s really done it all. Anyone who has seen or worked on any of his movies knows he’s absolutely fearless. I’ve come to believe there’s only one explanation for this. I’m pretty sure ridley scott is an android.”

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20169:43 pm

Ridley is coming out now to a standing ovation.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20169:43 pm

He comes out to Starman. More Bowie. More sad feels.

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20169:43 pm

Shoulda been “Fame”

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20169:53 pm

“Thank you for this wonderful honor. And thank for for what you just did,” Scott began his speech. He then embarked on a fun, occasionally funny and definitely rambling discussion of his experience using visual effects. (The food was rich and the drinks flowed freely, so we forgive.)

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20169:54 pm

The speech got into details, deep details, sometimes trivial, sometimes illuminating, for instance the fact that they made the forest in Legend look so vast using mirrors, which led to plenty of the pigeons they used in the film smacking into the mirrors. “There were no casualties,” though, Scott says, “just a lot of dazed pigeons.”

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20169:55 pm

“My hat comes off to all you guys and gals, with all your passion and genius and evolving ideas… I love the process, working with you wherever you are,” Scott concluded his speech.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20169:56 pm

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau out to present the next award.

Erik Pedersen February 2, 20169:57 pm

Winner: 

Outstanding Visual Effects in a Commercial

SSE; Pier
Neil Davies
Tim Lyall
Hitesh Patel
Jorge Montiel

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20169:58 pm

OK, so SSE Pier, Game of Thrones, The Revenant, Star Wars, and Pixar are killing it tonight.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 20169:59 pm

Coster-Waldau makes an awkward joke about the possibility of George R.R. Martin running out of books. Don’t worry Nikolaj, GRRM has already been lapped by the show.

Erik Pedersen February 2, 201610:00 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Visual Effects in a Photoreal Episode

Game of Thrones; The Dance of Dragons
Joe Bauer
Steve Kullback
Eric Carney
Derek Spears
Stuart Brisdon

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 201610:01 pm

Annnd Game of Thrones takes the lead. And before you ask, no, the acceptance speech does not reveal the fate of Jon Snow. Sorry everyone.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 201610:03 pm

“We’ve made it people, we’re at the last presenter of the night, you did it, give yourselves a round of applause”, Oswalt says. “This person is the only other person in the room other than JJ Abrams who understands what it’s like to have 100,000 pounds of nerd pressure on you.” Out comes Batman v Superman director Zach Snyder.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 201610:03 pm

“I love you Zach,” says Oswalt. “Do NOT f**k this up.” Big laughs.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 201610:05 pm

“Visual effects allows people to do the impossible,” says Snyder, cracking up. Starting again, he continues “and visual effects in animated features can push boundaries even further… visual effects experts find ways to make us believe.” he says about the nominees for outstanding visual effects in an animated feature.

Erik Pedersen February 2, 201610:06 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Visual Effects in an Animated Feature

The Good Dinosaur
Sanjay Bakshi
Denise Ream
Michael Venturini
Jon Reisch

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 201610:06 pm

During the clips part of this award, the clip for Anomalisa was the beginning of the sex scene. Just as awakward in public. 

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 201610:07 pm

Well, Good DInosaur officially crushed it tonight. I have no idea what this means for Pixar at the Oscars, but this has to feel like vindication of a sort. Congratulations to that team.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 201610:08 pm

Final award of the night. When Snyder said so, “YAY”, literal “YAY” came from the audience.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 201610:09 pm

OK PEOPLE, CLIFFHANGER: Will Star Wars win one last time? The revenant? Mad Max? Or will The Martian get a nod finally? San Andreas? My hope is Furious Seven and no I am not kidding about that.

Erik Pedersen February 2, 201610:10 pm

Winner:

Outstanding Visual Effects in a Photoreal Feature

Star
Wars: The Force Awakens

Roger Guyett
Luke O’Byrne
Patrick Tubach
Paul Kavanagh
Chris Corbould

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 201610:12 pm

Disney was the night’s biggest winner, with Pixar owning all animation categories, and Star Wars narrowly edging out the Revenant for the live action film with the most wins. Does this mean it’ll win in its Oscar categories? I have no idea – I’ll leave that to Deadline’s actual experts. But It does mean that cute robots always beat angry bears. That’s just science, people.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 201610:12 pm

The Star Wars team, accepting their awards, reference Oswalt’s comments earlier in the night about Star Wars, and the party friend with great cocaine. “It’s all true people. I can’t even remember this movie!” Big laughs.

Ross A. Lincoln February 2, 201610:14 pm

That, by the way ladies and germs, is the end. We’re free, we can leave. And you can stop reading, knowing you received nothing but the best possible commentary from a universally acclaimed Genius. I am of course talking about Erik. Thanks man!

Erik Pedersen February 2, 201610:15 pm

Well played, Ross. Extra donut for you.

Good night, all.

    1. bull star wars is just remake crap with crap cgi effects (they said they would not use much, they lied), hammy dialogue, and predictable plot, because you know, it is a damn crappy remake!
