MONDAY MOVIE MEME
Today's movie topic is special effects! Yesterday was the 4th of July a day which often ends with Fireworks, those awesome light displays that shoot up into the sky and then burst into beautiful colored patters of lights! The movies are filled with amazing special effects - what are your favorites? If you can think of any great special effects movies jot them down in your blog and then head on over to The Bumbles Blog and post a link there!
Molly and Andy came up with some wonderful special effects movies, here are a couple of others:
Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) a science fiction film about unidentified flying objects! There are some wonderful scenes in this movie and , although they may not be as "big" as some of the special effects in today's movies, the way the scenes were done and the lights and special effects for the UFOs were great.
Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) This movie used many new computer-generated effects in the area of visual effects and the first partially computer-generated main character was seen in this film! The T-1000 is a new Terminator sent to kill John and his mother, Sarah, and it is made of a liquid metal that allows it to take the shape of anyone or anything it touches. It can also mimic the voice and appearance of humans and can shape parts of itself into knives and other similar weapons, although not into guns or bombs.
The Fly (1986) a science fiction horror film in which Jeff Goldblum, playing an intelligent but eccentric scientist turns into a fly after being merged with a fly during a teleportation experiment! It's a fantastic movie that will make your skin crawl!
