"How'd they do that?" Well, here's the chance to find out
This is a special feature found on the 2-Disc Special Edition DVD of Batman Returns, released in 2005, and, as the title suggests, deals with the visual effects of the film. It consists of some interview bits with three people who worked on the creation of said FX(Fink seems to do most of the talking herein, and he takes you through it all quite well), some production stills, footage from the work(behind the scenes, as they make it, as well as more finished material), and, yet again, inter-cut clips of the movie. The viewer is taken through the many(if not by today's standards... that's something they address, that for the time, it was considered a lot, and how today, it could all be accomplished by CGI) effects of the film, from the very first to the very last(you know the one... though you may be surprised by what the very first is). This is well-paced and interesting, and certainly had me marveling over how they did it all, appreciating the film even more. This comes in at about eleven and a half minutes, and is rather informational and well-edited, all entirely sharp and to the point. This is worth watching for anyone interested in visual effects, and anyone who likes the movie, and doesn't feel that their enjoyment of it would in any way be negatively impacted by knowing how the FX were done. I recommend this to anyone who finds themselves in either or both aforementioned groups. 7/10
