You could still tell they were fake Apes the entire time. The bear scene at the beginning looked pretty terrible.HorrorBiz wrote:I know it's blasphemy around to say it these parts but I actually think Apes deserves the win.

Christopher Nolan's 2014 grand scale science-fiction story about time and space, and the things that transcend them.
When they did the CGI for the apes features and movement they also had to use equations to get the physics of movement and the environment right.CoolwhipSpecial wrote:I loved DotPotA, but the black hole scene in Interstellar alone should guarantee it a win (even thought it won't).
I mean, they rendered it using an actual mathematic equation. We're talking theoretical physics here, people!
When it comes to these two, I think Dawn deserves it more right now because of how amazingly difficult it is and how realistic it looks and how well CGI creatures were able to showcase emotion.
However, I also agree that Interstellar will clearly stand the test of time better because it uses a lot of practical effects and doesn't do any movement of a person/animal which is the most difficult thing to do in CGI.
I won't be mad if any of these two win, because you can make an argument for both. I'm just saying, if it was my decision, I would give it to Dawn.
Oh yeah, not only should it have been nominated, I think it should have easily won the whole thing. I love Birdman's cinematography. If it was a year with lesser competition, I'd probably give it to Birdman. However, Interstellar was AMAZINGLY beautiful. I'd much rather Interstellar win cinematography than visual effects. Alas the academy effed up on this one big time in my opinion.
