Do you love special effects? Perhaps this is the wrong question to ask, perhaps we should be asking, who doesn’t? Special effects have come a long way in the past 20 years, and some of the new movies that have come out in the later decade have proven to set the bar yet again for what good special effects are supposed to consist of. So, here are a few movies to look to for some of the best effects to date.
Transformers 2 has ushered in a whole new era of visual beauty with the dramatic, yet intricate design of it’s main characters, huge autobots that Transform into different kinds of vehicles. The special effects in this movie are seamless, natural, and easy to watch, which is part of what makes Transformers 2 one of the best special effects projects to this day.
Iron Man included some amazing special effects that, once again, were seamless and natural. Nowadays, it is not the goal of special effects to look good, but to look like they are not special at all! And Iron Man meets this goal with a gold medal. After all, if Iron Man can fly through the air and make it look very believable, then there has got to be something good about it. Oh yeah, and some good explosions never hurt!
Original star wars trilogy
Ok, they might not be new, but in a list of super special effects movies, you cannot leave out the original star wars movies. They are amazing, and they were the beginning of a whole new era of special effects technology. To be quite honest, they are still better than a lot of stuff that came after them, which just goes to show how these movies were way ahead of their time.
