I said PotA.
ILM is the only good thing about JP3. I doubt I'll even buy that one. Well, I might. It would be interesting to see a "behind the scenes" featurette, so you could see what kind of crack they were smoking when they made the movie.
Yeah, I probably won't pick up JP3, unless it's jamn-packed with feautures!
I probably won't get POTA either, cuz I think that 're-imagining' should've stayed in Burton's head
Pearl Harbor is a toss-up. I hated the movie, but that 3-disc set with R-rated director's cut is tempting...
I'm definately picking up A.I., and if the rumors of the Spielberg commentary are true... Excellent
I thought Planet of the Apes was a good movie. How about you guys?
Yeah, I really liked it. Out of those on the list, I'd say it's the one I'm most likely to buy.
Yeah it was cool. Did you get the ending?
JP 3 was entertaining. But both JP 2 and JP 3 were horrible compared to the original Jurrasic Park. That movie was awesome!
BTW I haven't seen The Mummy Returns but I thought The Mummy was pretty cool.
IMO, PotA is the only one up there worth buying, regardless of the extras. I'd only see those others ones again if I got paid.
Since the question was about effects, I said AI.
Teddy was awesome, and some of theose things(I don't wanna be spoilerish) were really cool.
However, I'm gonna pick up PotA.
Nowadays we pretty much know how they do the effects for every film...CGI. It used to be that FX guys had to be inventive to figure out how to make something work. Now it's mostly just CGI.
Oh yeah, Planet of the Apes is my favorite out of all of those movies but I doubt I'll buy it.
CGI or not, the FX team at ILM is pretty amazing.
That's a good point, EagleI. Teddy looked so natural, that I really hadn't thought much about just HOW they did that (I know, CGI). But still, that would be interesting. Worth a rental, at least.
I thought Teddy was actually a robot built by Stan Winston for the entire film. When someone told me several scenes of him were CG, I was shocked.
So let's see... ILM has created realistic CG water and fur... Now what?
Bra, do you have a clue what you're talking about? "It's all CGI." If you knew anything beyond quotes like the one above you would know models are being used in more movies today than at any time in film history.
Here, answer this : Name one scene in TPM that is entirely CG.
Gungan/Battle Droid Battle
I agree with you mostly, Shane, but there are a few completely CG scenes.
Well, there're actually completely CG shots in the Naboo Battle. But, some scenes contain eigth-scale models from the model shop. Also, explosions were shot practically and digitally composited into the battle. There is a big difference between compositing a practical element digitally, and creating it completely with CG.
I would have picked the original SW-trilogy.... I WANT IT ON DVD!!!
