Idris Elba makes a stand
Action, villains and more
Universal postpone production in wake of Paul Walker's tragic death
The Make-Up: Director John Huston came up with the wheeze of having Hollywood A-listers Kirk Douglas, Burt Lancaster, Frank Sinatra, Robert Mitchum and Tony Curtis appear in heavily disguised cameos.
Created By: John Chambers, recently immortalised by John Goodman for his part in the real-life events depicted in Argo.
Cleverest Detail: The end of the film, in which the stars wipe off their make-up to reveal their identities.

I had no idea Denzel Washington was in so many of these films.

Rick Baker for the win! Also, the cleverest thing about "Looper"'s makeup, I thought, was that the majority of the prosthetics applied were minor (lips, nose, cheeks), but it was still enough to make you believe that Levitt could potentially age into Willis. Just for those two hours, at least.

No Terminator? HOW? HOW DO YOU NOT HAVE AT LEAST T2? But is see Hostel made the list?Hostel? REALLY?!?!? Absolutely some of the WORST Makeup FX I have seen in ANY Modern film, regardless of who did it.That whole torch Eyeball? Yeah does not belong on this list. I have seen Sy-Fy movies with better FX.

Oh yeah Braveheart had great makeup. 'here's some blue paint.' 'Thankyou'. Er...

No offense, but where the hell is Star Wars? That should be number one, wether it be the prequels or the originals

Wasn't American Werewolf in London animatronics not make-up???

If its all about prosthetics, then its got to be the fire extinguisher scene from Irreversible. I know its fake, but I still find it too distressing to watch again...

I thought the Hostel "eyeball" was hilariously bad!

Looper at #12? OMG Total film you really suck lately.

How can you do 50 greatest movie make up effect and not include the original men in black...
Jan 22nd 2013, 20:03
I agree about the 'Richard' Tracy one, Madonna looks youthful.

I'm suprised to see (having only just watched it for the first time) that Ghandi was not listed in here - the way they age him through the film is utterly convincing and to say he's playing am Indian as well...

Ray Park - Darth Maul (Episode 1)
Jan 23rd 2013, 12:27
Tim Curry as Pennywise the clown in IT. If Benjamin Button is in the list well then every other film that utilised CGI should have a chance.

What about Darkness and Meg Knucklebones from Legend!???
