WORST: Prometheus
Ridley Scott's huge pale-as-snow bald ''engineers'' could have looked threatening, but nope, they just looked horribly unrealistic, bulky and glassy-eyed. Noomi Rapace ripping that twisty alien baby out of her belly with surgical help? We concede, well done. -Solvej Schou


I believe the Engineers were a practical effect using costumes, not CGI.

sno man: To The Escape Zeppelin!: John Carter wasn't a very good movie but the CGI was incredible. This list had less to do with CGI and more to do with the writer liking or disliking the movie.

I think the author had issue with the believablity of the freakishly huge jumps John Carter was making, even more than the quality or not of the movie, story or the balance of the CGI...


Yes, his complaints were about the jumps. Like most people, he never read the book.

sno man: Earth's greater gravity isn't greater enough for that. He couldn't even pull that off on the moon....


When it was written it wasn't known how it would affect movement, so it was written that way.
My only complaint is that when ERB wrote the surface looked like moss, he meant

vrax: Tsar_Bomba1: And I'm probably one of a few, but I thought CGI Fifield was more terrifying than practical effect Fifield.

Absolutely! After I saw the cut scene I was thinking "WTF?! You guys cut this?!?!" This was definitely a case where the CGI was the better option, in every way, by far! Ridley was wrong.



I believe I read somewhere that they couldn't get the practical Fifield Babyhead to Ridley's satisfaction.

This would have been better. Weta did the cgi.

Mentat: Dalek Caan's doomed mistress: Just whiny fanboy biatching. The movie was actually fairly decent. Yes, it's a comic book movie and it is a Spider-Man reboot, but they handled it fairly well. The Lizard has always been a silly villain, there was never going to be any escape from that, but he worked out fairly well I thought. I actually prefer the new version over the Toby McGuire version, and I hope Sony kills Gwen in the next movie or two. There's no point in introducing her unless they plan to have her neck snap.

My issue with the Lizard in the movie is that they tried to go for the Intelligent Velociraptor version and instead ended up with King Koopa. Otherwise though, I was fine with it. Especially Emma Stone in thigh-high boots.


That should have been the title. "Emma Stone in Thigh-high Boots." I'd have seen it opening weekend, with a ticket to the next showing already in my pocket.

So he has issues with a plot device in a hundred year old science fiction novel? Huge jumps are what he complains about being unrealistic in a movie containing anti-gravity technology? This list is has nothing to do with CGI.

Dumb-Ass-Monkey: WORST: John Carter
Andrew Stanton's Martian mega-flop gets a worse rap than it deserves, and parts of the movie look beautiful. But boy, they really could have done without Taylor Kitsch's super-jumps

yeah, because that's totally not part of the books or anything...


And considering what was left out from the books, like John Carter being a complete badass from nearly page 1, and everyone being mostly to completely nude, we should be happy that Disney left in the super-jumps.

Seriously, that pissed me off so much, Carter doing the usual "wimpy loser slowly becomes competent hero throughout movie" instead of being an amazing hardass from the start.

Ann Coulter's Diiick: Obscure Login: Prometheus was one of the worst? What the hell were they watching?

The movie sucked but the CGI was some of the best I've ever seen. That movie was gorgeous.

I didn't...hate...it when I saw it in theatres. After watching all 8+hours of BTS stuff and watching it again, I had a massive newfound appreciation for the film. It's not perfect, by any means, but it's not as meh as I originally thought. It sits with you for a while and lets you wonder. I actually like that a little bit.




Agreed. About the only shot where the engineer was CGI was when he was in the chair getting ready to take off.

And I'm probably one of a few, but I thought CGI Fifield was more terrifying than practical effect Fifield.

Yeah, and say what you want about the story, but the film was visually stunning which was even more apparent on the Blu-Ray than in the theater (theaters need to get their shiat together).
