The birth of digital cinema
15 March 2009 | by higuitamaxSee all my reviews

I think Elileen, here, has her award ceremonies mixed. I have this particular chow on a BETA tape I would watch several times as a teenager (I was the lamest teenager, I know). I only had this show recorded, and the next one. I remember Lucille Ball standing there with Bob Hope, the two Bonds (Connery and Moore) with Michael Caine, the thing with Martin Short and Princess Leia and Robin Williams dressed as a "Big Rat". This year was important for it was the advent of a new era. We now go to the movies and everything is CGI. Hollywood had already toyed with computer effects on movies like Tron (I like it!) or The last starfighter (kind of dumb), but with Willow the era of digital cinema was born. For the first time computer graphics and effects looked real (or at least, credible). We had a good witch, Raziel, who could transform herself into practically every creature imaginable. So, ILM gave birth to a then new technique called the Morph. If you want to see how it was done optically (before digital cinema) you only have to see Krull, from 1980. There, Ergo the magician had the same power exactly complete with the mess-up transformations. Anyway, Willow, for such a breakthrough, it was only nominated for Sound effects editing and best visual effects at the Oscars. I think Die hard got the award.
