2014 in Review: The Year's Best Film Effects

This was a lot of fun: For Popular Mechanics, I (and Lauren Bans) wrote about some of the most impressive technical feats in cinema from last year. That includes The Grand Budapest Hotel, Foxcatcher, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Edge of Tomorrow and Under the Skin. We chatted with the wizards who brought these effects to life, which was plenty illuminating. I hope you enjoy.
