I think its cool and all, but it's not really mind blowing to me. When I'm watching something, I can't tell the difference between what is and isn't real but there is a little voice saying "that can't all be real, I wonder how they did it."

You'd think before-and-after shots of "your favorite scenes" would feature effects-heavy movies like LOTR, the Matrix, Spider-Man, etc. And instead it's a couple shots of people doing mundane things where they photoshopped in exciting effects like "a building" and "water."

A couple of those don't really surprise me (The Walking Dead shots, especially riding the horse into a destroyed Atlanta looked a bit on the fake side).  I was surprised a couple years back when I saw some shots on some show that showed the extent of how they use this on shows like "Ugly Betty" and "Law and Order".  I guess when the scene is relatively common with no real fantastic element, it's easy to just go with it.

I don't know if I'm missing your point, but I think that's the exact thing these scenes were getting right. You didn't even question the reality of those scenes. It never even crossed your mind that the whole farking scene was fake. OK they had a guy on a horse that was real, but did you for one second think, "you know they must have put weeks of post production into this shot to convince me of all of those burnt out vehicles"? No, because they weren't effects driven you weren't looking for the rough edges, the seams, the cracks in the facade. You just accepted the scene as it was presented, as if it actually happened that way. It's actually a really good part of the process of film-making when they don't have to get you to suspend your disbelief, you just openly accept what you're seeing as fact. Sure you might think I'm an idiot for accepting a dude on a horse and NOT questioning all the burned out cars, but I did, I really did, I assumed that they blocked off the highway and put a couple scrap jobs in to hold the place and added the smoke to the skyline digitally, but the WHOLE thing? IT WAS ALL FAKE? He was on a horse is the only real part about it? I was taken in, I was completely lied to. My faith in humanity is at an all time low.

Can somebody list where most of these are from.

The Walking Dead ones I recognized, but the others??

Hey, can any film farkers please tell my why background screens are green and not any other color or white or black? thanks!

From wiki:

Green is currently used as a backdrop more than any other color because image sensors in digital video cameras are most sensitive to green, due to the bayer pattern allocating more pixels to the green channel, mimicking the human eye's increased sensitivity to green light.[6] Therefore, the green camera channel contains the least "noise" and can produce the cleanest key/matte/mask. Additionally, less light is needed to illuminate green, again because of the higher sensitivity to green in image sensors.[7] Bright green has also become favored as a blue background may match a subject's eye color or common items of clothing, such as jeans, or a dark-navy suit.

Bolded part (my emphasis) is probably the most important part.

Don't people need to know where those scenes are from for it to "shatter" dreams?

Seriously, I didn't recognize a single one of them. Maybe the helictoper one is from 28 Days or something?

Also, why do the after shots look like PS1 graphics?

Good it's not just me. I only recognized "The Walking Dead" - not a clue otherwise.

The car pulling up to a security gate looks like an episode of... er... Episodes... to me.

The helicopter was also from Walking Dead.

To double up on that answer it all has to do with keying out the color with computer. Basically it is a huge pain when the computer can't 'tell the difference' between the parts you want to keep, and the parts you don't. The big bright obnoxious green is essentially unseen in just about all situations, so it is unlikely that the computer will mix it up with skin/clothing/backgrounds.

The last set of pics is from "Ugly Betty", being chased by a reporter she walks into a glass wall on a bus stop enclosure.

The funniest thing is, if there isn't another actor to play to in a lot of these scenes, the actors would have absolutely nothing else to react to. If they ever get computerized skin tones and textures right, and get the eyes to appear to focus correctly - and they are very very close now - they won't need actors for anything but their voices.  Ten years form now, absolutely everything will be CGI, and we'll never know the difference.

case in point.  Jennifer Alba's quasi-nude scene in Machete was done via CGI.  compare the before with the after: (link is slightly NSFW)  http://cache.gawker.com/assets/images/7/2012/01/medium_644e394fbc3630 5 f2d2b035b07e1b7b7.jpg
