    He should do a video about some of the effects they got in Star Wars, like the scrolling opening or the land speeder with mirrors. I bet theres a whole bunch more cool stuff going on that im too lazy to learn about and I think hed do a good video on it

      that didnt look like 88 mph even though DeLorean was not a fast car, not by any measure. The sprint from 0 to 60 mph took 9.5 seconds with the manual transmission, and a plodding 10.5 seconds with the automatic transmission. Top speed clocked in at just 110 mph.

        back to the future is a film that pushes the point of VFX home

        If the film is based around VFX... it's never going to age. In 2020, I've already watched through all three parts twice. It proves that a good story told will suspend the disbelief for the VFX that aren't perfect, and let the VFX that come out flawless fade into the backdrop where they are appreciated as a real shot.

            Mark Hamel: this is the compactor scene, shouldn’t my hair be full of smooch (paraphrasing)
            Harrison Ford: Hey, kid. It’s not that kind of film. If they are looking at your hair at this point of the movie; then, we’re in big trouble.

            Freddie Wong of Rocket Jump in his essay video on vfx: (paraphrasing from memory) if your audience is notice bad vfx; then, your story was boring to begin with.

                                    I healthily envy "Back to the Future" fans. You didn't have everything fucked up by some stupid greed-driven mongoloid. As it happened to us fans of... Star Wars... Star Trek, Alien, Mad Max, Blade Runner, Ghostbusters, Superman, Batman, Terminator, Indiana Jones, Total Recall, The A-Team, GI Joe, Transformers, and Robocop, to name a few. Yeah, Robocop, too, because wtf was Clarence doing in "That 70's Show" anyway?

                                      I am huge fan of back to the future... but you get 1000 minus points for not having the Captain crash into another time machine.

                                                                                          Old-school effects are (like many arts) unnecessarily difficult but worth the effort to get good at. I once filmed a chess game against a ghost in high ISO (grainy) Black & White, using double exposure and all the ghosts's pieces being connected to thin grey thread that wouldn't show on film. We had several people 'controlling' the board, a chess game planned that avoided crossing the threads and an actor trying to ignore the craziness hiding just out of shot. Immeasurably more fun than CGI.
