Stan Winston dies at 62

Oscar winning special effects guru Stan Winston died Tuesday, June 17th at the age of 62, after a seven year battle with myeloma.

How I did not hear about this until today is beyond my ability to comprehend. You may recognize Stan from, oh, EVERY big SFx movie made in the 80s and 90s. (Terminator 2, Jurassic Park, Aliens - all of which he won Oscars for - among numerous others) Sadly we will never experience his work again.

Rest in peace, Stan.
