It’s no mystery that CGI has taken real strides moving forward, but time and again we get some shoddy work as the trailer for the recent Sonic the Hedgehog movie. Corridor Crew from Youtube actually came up with this fun video where they ask CGI experts to react to the best and the worst CGI of modern cinema.
It’s amazing the insight these guys have for some scenes because they can actually look at some effects that you thought were good and tell you where it went wrong. I’m sure a lot of people love it when the Dragons show up in Game of Thrones, but you take a close-up of Jon Snow’s hand petting the dragon, and you come up with some real problems.
It’s also fun to watch them react to great CGI as well. They point out how impressed they were in that scene in Logan where Logan meets his clone and its face is completely CGI. They also point out the masterful use of light when it came to bringing Davy Jones to life in the Pirates of the Caribbean films.
They even gave comment on what made the CGI Leia in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story look so weird—it was the difficulty in animating her mouth.
No doubt there’s going to be several more debates on CGI moving forward, but I thought this was a fun video for anyone who’s into movies and shows in general.
