Topic: I hope Van Helsing isn't gonna be another CGI disaster

Let's bring back old fashioned make up!!

I'm tired of the overuse of CGI. Often horror films look more like animated Disney stuff than the real thing.

Re: I hope Van Helsing isn't gonna be another CGI disaster

Often ? More like all the time. CGI ruins horror movies all the time. Cant be scared of a monster that doesn't look real. Maybe of Sci-Fi was creating monsters instead of using cgi their movies wouldn't s*ck so much.

Re: I hope Van Helsing isn't gonna be another CGI disaster

The art of horror movie make up is being lost. 

I'm bored of seeing computerized vampires and zombies doing absurd acrobatic movements, jumps, etc.


It's lazy and very boring.

Re: I hope Van Helsing isn't gonna be another CGI disaster

Tom Cruise?!?  First I'm hearing about this.

Re: I hope Van Helsing isn't gonna be another CGI disaster

I truely ENJOY the CGI and appreciate all that's done. Screw old school we LIVE IN 2013 man, NOT in the 50-80s anymore so do your time guys. tongue
But I still respect your views. SOmehow... lol

Re: I hope Van Helsing isn't gonna be another CGI disaster

Tom Cruise might work, but not as Van Helsing. I really see him playing the Count, probably because i really liked him as a baddie in IwtV. But for VH i'd rather see a new face, age appropriate also.

On topic:
I agree with the kid. CGI is the future, whether we want it or not. There are 2 major problems though: quality and setting some limits.
Quality is restricted by budget, so improvements there will come only in time, as better and cheaper techniques are developed.
The second part can be changed though. With CGI you can do virtually anything, but you have to set some decent limits, for God's sake! At least respect the laws of physics!

Sry dude, I guess you're not as young as I presumed you were:D

DON'T be sorry, I'm still young, I'm 44 but in my head I'm definitely 16. lol

Don't let him fool you.....kXnPunk is immortal.

Re: I hope Van Helsing isn't gonna be another CGI disaster

also, just saying...Tom Cruise is still not back to being cool for me, yet...How much does he pay his PR teams?....it's like the last 10 years of whackiness have been instantly erased from our collective conciousness...

Re: I hope Van Helsing isn't gonna be another CGI disaster

The only recent one I liked him in was Knight And Day with Cameron Diaz. But aside from that, urgh...

And a good morning to you fellow canadian, sir dad JackBurton power. smile

Re: I hope Van Helsing isn't gonna be another CGI disaster

I'm a huge unashamed Cruise fan.  My wife has accused me of being in love with him, which I deny.  I think he is one of the coolest dudes ever.  There have been a few of his movies I avoid (Reacher for instance).  However, I think he has been in some of the greatest movies ever.  That said, I know he has a lot of haters.

I'm just surprised this movie is being made.  What was it, 2006, the last Van helsing came out?  Actually, thought that was pretty entertaining, if a bit long, but it was a definite CGI fest. 

I will be very interested in this one though.

His Oprah thing was the best thing he ever did and I'm serious. lol

But yes, I DIG the first, normal, Kate Beckinsale is in so... smile

Make it happen. Go, go, go!!!

Damn RIGHT I AM!!! lol

Re: I hope Van Helsing isn't gonna be another CGI disaster

Tom Cruise? I'd still do him. Total whack job, but a damn fine looking one, and a decent actor to boot.

But more on topic, With CGI in horror I think less is more. I'm a fan of restraint in these kinds of deals, unless there's there's an obvious call for it, but in a horror movie that's going to be pretty much never. The original Van Helsing was one of the worst offenders of CGI over-use that I have ever seen. Bloody terrible movie. If they want to be succesful with the remake their going to have to use practical effects, there's no other way around it.

I totally disagree, man, the Vamp girls flying or burning was badass but the most impressive one was the Dracula and Werewolf fight. If that is overused and bad then I'm gonna watch ONLY that kind of stuff from now on. IT RULES!!!

The flying babies were great too.

Ah well, to each his own right??? So THAT is my own. lol

Luckily, we'd live in a sick world if everything I want becomes true.

Re: I hope Van Helsing isn't gonna be another CGI disaster

I had an idea for a horror movie, set in Spain, about a man who is seeking out a secret evil cult.

But it's so secret he never finds the cult.

The end.

Rather boring but it seemed like a good idea at the time. big_smile
