Popular Mechanics’ Top 10 F/X Scenes in Movie History
Popular Mechanics “asked industry insiders to pinpoint the biggest breakthroughs in digital F/X history.” This is the list they came up with.
Top 10 F/X Scenes in Movie History
- Star Wars (1977)
- Tron (1982)
- Terminator 2 (1991)
- Cliffhanger (1993)
- Jurassic Park (1993)
- Forrest Gump (1994)
- The Perfect Storm (2000)
- Lord of the Rings (2001)
- The Polar Express (2004)
- The Day After Tomorrow (2004)
Some of these look suspicious…The Polar Express was just plain creepy. And the only thing I remember about Cliffhanger‘s special effects was how they forgot to digitally erase the wires that help the upside-down helicopter to the side of the mountain. Also, as noted by Cinema Blend (the link source), The Matrix is nowhere to be seen.
