You forget with current movies how nice it is to see things really destroyed on screen, and stunt men in flame-retardant suits on fire, jumping through windows
@Louisa love that shit, practical effects are awesome
@phillyis I'm watching a mummy-related bus crash, and it's great! They really fucked up that bus!
@Louisa I want things to go boom, but for real!
@Louisa practical effects fun to watch even when they're bad, cgi is boring to watch even when its good and especially when its bad
@Taweret exactly— really destroying one room with squibs to make it seem like machine gun fire is more compelling than a superhero "destroying" a whole building that isn't real
I like the _quality_ of modern effects, but it's too EASY now.
Directors are just doing all the stuff that used to be too expensive, even though that makes all their movies the same. (Destroy the Enterprise EVERY time! Why not?)
Solution : CG effects, but filmmakers are required to donate to charity what it would have cost to actually blow up that thing.
@baturkey there it is!
@Louisa this is one of the reasons we love watching fury road. Good ole practical effects and real vehicles tearing up a desert
@nautilee yes! Very satisfying effects in that movie
@Louisa can you imagine being the stunt guy who had to come at Kevin O'Connor on the boat while his body was on fire? Just wild!
@infernusgoatus I don't know who that is!
@Louisa He's Benny the ferrety henchman guy in The Mummy!
@infernusgoatus ohhhhhhh yes I see
The fire stunts are so wild in that movie, I don't see how they did half of them
