With the advent of computers and technology into the making of motion pictures, CGI has equipped directors with tools to tell the stories they could have never imagined to tell. The ideas and vision transcend the black and white of screenplays, and get ensconced into the psyche of the audience. These remarkable achievements in science and technology has paved the way for unfathomable concepts, with incomprehensible characters. Now a days, almost all movies use the “green screen” to create some scenes, which we have no idea are done that way. But despite it clouding under the realms of banality, some moments just stand out and are vividly solidified in our memories.
We decided to take a fun ride through the transient pages of CGI’s evolution and perfection. Here is the list of top 10 CGI moments in movies.
10. Matrix (1999)
The Scene: Neo dodging bullets from the agents.
Is it the greatest sci-fi action movie ever made? I actually have a funny anecdote regarding this which I would like to share. In my school, I had this computer-science teacher, who was really weird. Different, perhaps is a better word. One day, we got to discussing “the impossible” attempted and achieved in CGI in the class. As usual, being the smart-mouth I am, I started to spill out gibberish which seemed to make quite an impression on my peers. But my teacher seemed unimpressed. I went on, ignoring his dire state, until finally he couldn’t take more, and shouted: “Have you never seen ‘The Matrix’?!”.
