Episode 223 :: Ultimate Movie Magic: Films that Perfectly Pair Practical Effects and CGI
The impact of computer generated images on the film industry has obviously been monumental - especially for nerd genres like sci-fi and fantasy. The impossible can come to life! But, despite the words of famed mathematician Dr. Ian Malcolm, "life" doesn't always find a way. Now that CGI is common place, cinema is littered with less than lifelike animation and even what was once glorious doesn't always hold up under modern scrutiny. Cinephiles agree: the best way to use CGI is sparingly and in tandem with old fashioned effects like miniatures, bigatures, animatronics, and stop motion.
In this fan-requested Nerdy Show microsode we discuss films that, like Jurassic Park, blend computer graphics and practical effects for a seamless (and timeless) viewing experience. Thanks to BigBadShadowMan for the episode topic!
