I'm jonesin' for some 'memberberries lately. Specifically, 'memberberries with an 80's-90's flavor--you know--before the CGI creep took over the art
formerly known as film.
I've been watching a lot of movies from decades past that I grew up with (for an adult's perspective re-watch,) or movies that came out in my lifetime
but I just didn't see when they came out.
I often find myself impressed with the visual effects and special effects accomplished without CGI. I get that taste of 'memberberries in the back of
my tongue and think, "Yes! This is when movies were films, cinematic art, and elbow grease...not just 200 computer animators at the credits
I love the work that went into building actual sets and models etc.
Can you recommend any movies from this era just before CGI dominated the effects department? It doesn't have to necessarily be about explosions and
stunts. I just watched Spielberg's E.T. for the first time and was very impressed with the use of lighting and shadows to drive the tone of the movie.
So that's all really. I'm looking for 80's-90's movies that had memorable visuals or special effects without the use of CGI.
Let's make a list! Let's discuss! Let's bloat ourselves on 'memberberries!
