    What Do You Still Like About JWfan?

    I remember you saying that Goldsmith was better. More than once.
  2. I'm sure most Gen Zers don't agree! Not really. You kept saying that the filmmakers wanted more than they achieved.
  3. And that's exactly what looked like from the perspective of 1984. Which is what counts. The filmmakers intended you to see it as perfect as the technology allowed back then. Shimmers and all. Period. And that's what they achieved. You don't want the 1933 King Kong effects to be fixed with modern technology, do you?
  4. It was the exact effect they wanted. It didn't look "fake" at all back then (although a minority may disagree). AND, most importantly, EVERY effect that you guys consider to be perfect today, will look like garbage in 20 years or less... It's all about perspective!
