The Morning Watch is a recurring feature that highlights a handful of noteworthy videos from around the web. They could be video essays, fanmade productions, featurettes, short films, hilarious sketches, or just anything that has to do with our favorite movies and TV shows.
In this edition, the visual effects artists at Corridor Crew take a look at the question work done during a chase sequence from Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Plus, find out how Kingsman: The Secret Service compares to the comic book on which the movie is based, and take a retrospective look back at the Earthworm Jim animated series inspired by the video game.
First up, the gang at Corridor Crew sits down to take a closer look at the visual effects of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, explaining why some of the green screen work looks so bad, not to mention the goofy effects of Spy Kids 3D: Game Over, as well as the digital alteration made to Splash on Disney+ and more.
Matthew Vaughn brought plenty of violence to Kingsman: The Secret Service, but did he stay true to the comic book that inspired it? In a new edition of “What’s the Difference?” from Cinefix, find out how the movie differs from the comic, starting with the fact that Kingsman and the round table of secret agents is a creation for the movie, and isn’t part of the comics. Find out more in the video.
Finally, Earthworm Jim was a hit video game back in the 1990s, and it was so popular that like many properties back in that decade, it got its own animated series. In this look back at the show with Syfy Wire, you’ll be reminded how it broke the fourth wall, almost like a sci-fi Deadpool with lots of odd comedy sprinkled throughout zany sci-fi action and worlds.
