Damn. 28 years later and that special effect still looks cool af.

level 2

My first thought too.

Those were REALLY well produced. More so for a deleted scene. Guess the bad guy couldn’t be “weak”

I remember seeing this in the theater and thinking that he was just “refreshing” his image – like a defragmentation thing or something. I just thought it was such an awesome extra little detail on Cameron’s part. Had no idea it was connected to any deleted scenes. Thanks for sharing.

If you can get the Blu-ray, I highly recommend it. The deleted scenes are all in the movie and it holds up so well that the whole thing, not just the cgi, holds up to look as though it was shot yesterday. Not only does it look good, it sounds great. The sound design is fantastic in this one..

28 years later and that nuclear explosion in the city in Sarah’s dream is still unbelievable, and I’ve had a career in computer graphics… and I still don’t know how they did it.

I for one can’t understand how some of today’s CGI is so shitty looking yet T2 still looks ahead of its time.

I’m so glad they stopped making Terminator movies after T2. End on a high note, you know.

At the time, it felt like this was the start of a new era in movies. It was suddenly clear that with a big enough budget, there was no longer a limit to what could be shown on the screen, and made to look real.

this 1991 CGI is weirdly better than 95% of 2019 CGI

level 2

That’s the magic of practical effects. These early “CGI” movies like T2 and Jurrasic Park are almost entirely practical effects. Practical effects, when pulled off correctly, will always look great. It also helps that they really only needed to CGI a shiny metal surface. If they tried to do hair it would have looked awful b
