The Movies of Your Childhood Look Like Crap Now [VIDEO]
It's easy to talk about how movie effects have improved over the years. But seriously, just how much better have they improved?
If it's been a while since you've seen your favorite childhood movie--especially one that had a fair amount of action in it--it might be good idea to just go ahead and leave that one in your past. I can't tell you how many times me and my movie nerd friends will reminisce about films we used to love and then as soon as we share that movie or clips from it with those who haven't seen it... well there's a certain level of embarrassment and sheepishness. You end up doing a lot of "Uh, well, uh, y'know, it uh... it looked a lot better in 1994."
Nothing proves that better than this supercut of just how bad certain movies' effects look. Of course, there are the films that are godawful from front to back, but there are a few in here that might surprise you if you haven't seen them recently.
