Watch Metropolis, the height of Silent Film.
Watch Singing In the Rain, notice the transition to “talkies;”
Watch Batman (1989) and see how it borrowed from Metropolis;
Watch these 3 to see how technology makes anything possible:
- Forest Gump
- The Matrix
- Jurassic Park
James Cameron has an Ace.
- See 3D go Big Time in Avatar and notice how this story robs Ferngully and Dances with Wolves (I think, I wrote something at the time but can’t find it now).
- Watch Titanic and see how badly Leonardo DiCaprio handles an accent for example but this movie still sets records. A handpuppet could have done that role apparently.
