The Top Five Worst CGI Effects in Movie History
In the tradition of ScreenCrush series like You Think You Know Movies and You Think You Know TV comes a new YouTube series: Top Five! Each week (or so; we’ve got a lot of other stuff going on), ScreenCrush editor and critic Matt Singer will count down a particular topic from the world of movies (and probably write these introductory posts in the third person).
A couple of very ugly recent stinkers got us wondering: What are the worst CGI effects in history? That question inspired the new Top Five, with one major caveat: We decided to exclude anything that premiered on DVD or cable. After all, Syfy movies about mega sharks and giant octopuses are supposed to look bad; that’s part of their kitschy appeal. All of the movies in this episode were supposed to look good. They just didn’t.
Top Five is a ScreenCrush original series that ranks all kinds of cool stuff from the world of movies. This is our 14th episode, so check out some of our past episodes below. Plus, we want your feedback, so be sure to let us know what Top Fives you want to see in future episodes! And don’t forget to subscribe to the ScreenCrush YouTube channel below to catch all our future episodes. Until next time, keep your eyes peeled for “FAKE DEER XING” signs, and make sure you learn to properly harness your animality.
