I'd love to watch a film which was CG heavy without the CG. I think it would be interesting.

I think the first picture is scarier with Davy Jones.

This is somewhat unfair if you think about it. If there wasn't any quality, computerised effects, then the actors/actresses wouldn't be covered in sensors and standing in front of green-screens and look stupid like that, they would have make up and costumes/outfits made by top professionals and would ultimately still look quite good, like they did in the past. So yeah, I'd probably still watch the movies without the 'top' effects.

I really hate thinking about movies this way anyone else agree with me?

they should release effects-free workprints as a separate release
they'd make more money for less work and I'd enjoy that so much more

Looks like Warner bros put Peter Jackson on a serious leash with the set building.

I was in the middle of this and just started thinking, "What the **** am I doing with my life." Long story short, I guess I'm here to stay. Is there a welcoming ceremony?

The point of this post is saying "This is how dull movies would look without VFX artists"
I doubt they would use greenscreens if VFX artists werent around and would use practical effects
But it still shows how much VFX artists do

Except it wouldn't look like that.

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...

Would watch 'Life of Pi' if there were no special effects and it was a real tiger.

I'd watch anything with Scarlett Johansson in it.

I would still watch films. The cinematographic works which I consume are valued by me for their stories, not their blasting.
User avatar #34 - trogdorrules (08/08/2013) [-]
I love watching behind the scenes stuff, so yeah I would totally watch a full movie with no special effects.

I just gained much more respect for actors/actresses

I didn't care for Avatar or Avengers, even with special effects.
User avatar #11 - kuroryuuhime (08/07/2013) [-]
Am I the only one who thinks it'd make for an awesome extra feature to have a version of the movie on Blu-Ray or whatever with all the special effects removed? Like just watch The Avengers, then right after watch Low-Budget Avengers with green screens and sound stages galore?

I can't even tell the difference
