I'd still watch without visual effects. It just means that film makers would have to actually.....i don't know...MAKE FILMS?!

Just look at the original Star Wars. Minimal visual effects, still had people ******** their pants at the premiere.

i would.
because then they would probably just go to locations and make props.
**** . i remember when Yoda was a puppet.

I certainly would not watch these movies.
But there are great movies without special effects.
Have you ever seen "The man from earth"?
That's a great movie and it's basically shot in a single room.

I watched the X men origins wolverine story without the finished visual effects, it was ******* hilarious.

I don't mind special effects
but I hate it when a movie relies too much on them that it ignores/drowns the story.

there are also good movies which don't need that amount of special effects, just sayin

Look at the original trilogy of Star Wars, look at all those amazing special effects. Not a single bit digitally inputted, all well timed shots, with special effects that you had to be skilled in, not to mention real built sets.

It was pure genius, now it's just computer input, restraining the actors from being able to interact with their environment.

This post makes a good point, but there's plenty to be said about filmmakers who go with a full physical set. It depends on the kind of movie you're looking to see.

I wouldn't watch Avatar again even with special effects

Wathcing the first movie about Wolverine when it leaked without special effects adedd was fun. It didn't feed my hungry eyes, but I got insight on the pre-production phase and some behind the scenes stuff.

Anyone post a pic of an oribinal Start Wars behind the scene!

And yes I DO watch films without special effects! The people today just got lazy, cause it is possible to do good films without them!
User avatar #16 to #3 - qazsa (08/08/2013) [-]
"they just got lazy" you are implying as if all the special effects are piss easy to do.
User avatar #127 - piketchup (08/08/2013) [-]
yes, because it would be ******* hilarious

respect to the visual artists!

but at the same time: shame on them!
even though the computers have so much more ressources than 10 years ago the animations have gotten worse.
just look at the t-rex from jurassic park. damn, it looked like it was there! and it still does! than look at the new animations and you just clearly see they are animations... why did they degrade the animations in the past few years? i just dont understand... back when i watched jp i thought "damn... soon all movies will look 100% realistic and have a lot of **** going on!" but instead all these animations are clearly animations... it's really a shame!

and then again, take aliens from ridley scott. it was great even without computer animations... so who says you need them?
nowadays they are mostly used to compensate the lack of originality and plot... and the bad actors. (just watch any movie on mute and in most cases you wont be able to tell what emotion the actor is playing. they have become that bad at mimic) i think it has taken a turn for the worst even though there's so much more potential nowadays...
