Terminator Endoskeleton creator Stan Winston dies at age 62.

Instead, with makeup, animatronics and robotics, the four-time Oscar-winning pioneer, who died Sunday at 62, persuaded filmgoers to believe in a relentless Terminator, a razor-fingered Edward Scissorhands and a ravenous T. rex in Jurassic Park.

This was the greatest man in special effects today. He worked with Lucas, Spielberg. Created the real live robots for the terminators and the Jurassic park animatronics. This guy was a robotics engineer who would make things work on film. He would not accept CGI and prefered to build the lifesize robots for his work in the films. He died last week and I saw no other mention about it here.

His work was wonderful. Rest in peace Stan

Oh, I see it, my bad. And I wasnt trying to discredit Winston's life, more of a Dick-Cheney-is-evil musing.

Winston had vision. SOmeone might say he had Illuminating vision (as in Illuminati for those who are half-asleep) but I dont think this is the case. The power brokers in Hollywood, maybe, Winston just had amazing talent.
