R.I.P. Stan Winston
If you’ve seen Terminator, Aliens, Predator, The Thing, Jurassic Park, Edward Scissorhands and even this year’s blockbuster hit Iron Man, then you know Stan Winston’s work. He is an Oscar-winning special effects and makeup genius, and more importantly, has been a staple of my geeked-out movie-going experiences over the years. Sadly, he passed away yesterday at the too-young age of 62, after a seven year struggle with cancer.
Thanks for the memories, Stan! You will be sorely missed.
