|5 ||Thank You Empire.|
|Well done Empire for dedicating an article to someone who actually deserves the praise. This is a very nice piece and a suitable tribute to one of the genuine genius' that work in Hollywood.
My personal favourite work has to be the Tim Burton remake of Planet of the Apes. The make-up in that was incredible. I watch that film just for the look of the Apes.
Thanks you Rick Baker for all the many hours of entertainment you have provided us.
Now how about an article on a cinematographer or composer? More|
