    I think they should talk about the environment from The Good Dinosaur. That was the first time I could not tell the difference between real and CG

    I watched the lawnmower man around 1994 at the age of 5, and all I can remember are the scenes inside the "game" (in my mind it was a videogame), and that virtual face was by far the most scary thing I've ever seen at that time. Seriously, that dude haunted me for years. Thank you for bringing that memory back, by the way.

    I was about ten when Lawnmower Man came out and at the time it seemed very cool to me. Probably because before there was no CGI in movies and it seemed so new and different.

    The thing with Lion King 2019 is that it's not live action, it just claims to be. It's all CGI so they had the tools and options to actually give their characters personality and emotion, and decided against it. In a musical, with singing animals.
    The film may look great on a visual level but it's lacking so much in other areas because they wanted to be as real as possible, and I really don't get it how as a director of such a film you deliberately choose to take out all the emotions.

    I didn't get to see Lawnmower Man in the cinema but we got it on video as soon as we could. it was pretty amazing for the time. we were completely enthralled by it from the first trailer. being into videogames, to see this looking so advanced compared to the games of the time, was mind blowing. There was so much CGI in this movie, compared to others of the time. the CGI shots were used sparingly in other movies but this was completely in your face. There was literally no shying away from it. it was computer graphics and it wasn't trying to be anything else. It had to be on the nose.
    It was a phenomenon and all the kids at school talked about it for a long time.

    I'm in animation and saw Lawnmower Man when it came out and thought, even at the time, that the animation looked rough and over-exaggerated but not augmented in terms of acting. It was 2 years before Reboot, though, and as we know, a lot of things happened during that time in terms of development, tools and expectations.

    1:05 and that's why these live action remakes of classics are absolute wank, they are emotionless and lifeless

    Me and my brother were teenagers when Lawnmower Man come out and we thought it was AWESOME. I know it looks crappy NOW, but at the time it really looked great. I didn't realise it came out AFTER T2, which blows it out of the water!

    It is what virtual reality games look like back then. I think lawnmower man is a cult classic.

    Lawnmower Man was just as terrible when it came out as it looks today. This was 10 years after Tron and 8 years after the Last Starfighter.

    REAL lions emote way more than the ones in this frickin' terrible movie, and I don't believe viewers watching wouldn't empathise with them if they didn't express more with their eyebrows, ears and body language. People love animals and they care about them - Heck, I've cried from watching cheetah cubs die in nature documentaries! So, don't me nobody cares about animals!

    i was born in 78, and saw lawnmower man in theaters after I saw T2. My dudes, it was one of the few movies I actually walked out on. The story was stupid and I was into tech stuff enough that I knew how much of it was total bull! The effects being janky as hell was the least of the reasons I didnt like the movie.

    Yeah guys, I was alive and right in the target demo for The Lawnmower Man. It was definitely marketed as being a huge breakthrough in CGI, and as I recall it mostly felt like it delivered. Yes, movies like Jurassic Park and T2 had used CGI, but it was always for elements. The exciting thing about Lawnmower Man was how extensive the use of CGI was. I think this was also an era when people thought VR was going to be like what you're seeing on screen. I recall being disappointed by the movie, but mainly by the story and not the effects. If I remember right, my disappointment with the effects was not how they were executed but what they chose to show. BTW you guys didn't use the VR/CGI sex scene? Because THAT was really something.

    I was a kid when I saw the first time The Lawnmower Man to the theater. It was quite impressive, for the time. For the VFX, but also for the theme of the movie.

    When I saw lawnmower man at the time I thought it looked cool but in no way realistic. More stylized. Looking back of course it looks silly but at the time it was entertaining.

    I was alive and will admit I liked lawnmower man. I knew it was cheesy as hell but it was funny. I actually remember comparing it to Terminator at the time which really set the bar.

  • Blake The Gambling Hero

    I think as somethign that should be looked at, i would probably say the classic Total Recall Airport scene with Schwarzenegger and the disguise he had. Or as another idea, the first Men in Black with the bug transformation

    The CGI in Lawnmower Man wasn’t that bad for the time, but they were attempting shots that CGI was just not ready for and most other movies had the sense not to go down that road just yet. Primitive CGI was great for metal and other non-living objects, but looked like crap for almost anything else (Jurassic Park is an amazing exception). However there weren’t a lot of movies with substantial CGI at the time, and virtual reality was the latest craze, so Lawnmower Man did have a fair bit of hype.

    I was alive for lawnmower man and it looked ridiculous. I also worked on Godzilla 98 building models, and pretty much ALL the settings were models, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Met building, the city, huge models.

    I saw The Lawnmower Man in 1992 in the theater and I loved it. Even watching it a few years later on VHS. You must understand that the CGI in the movie was supposed to have been REAL-TIME in 1992. So, at the time I saw it, me and other viewers could forgive it for not being photo-realistic. The CGI in that movie was also light-years head of any real-time that could be done for less than $100,000 in your own home. No one had an array of 1,000 Pentium 60MHz (1993) computers to do that in real time. A "3D accelerator card"?! WHAT THE HELL IS THAT?! That movie didn't take place in "The Future" like so many other sci-fi movies. Unlike Terminator 2 or Jurassic park, which both only had about 5 minutes of CGI, Lawnmower Man had about 23 minutes of CGI. The CGI was not done by ILM it was by Xaos Inc.

    I'm a CG artist myself and I had seen Lawnmower man in cinemas back in the day. It was Bad! Even back then. The only interesting thing was that CG was actually a new thing and not many were used to it. It was something new and fresh So for many back in those days CG was welcomed, not because they looked good. But cause it was a new thing no body knew how it's being made. Damn it you all forget, not many had access to a computer either. Computer itself was something interesting. So something new thats made with another new cool gadget, was interesting all by itself.
    When it came to some good CG like T2 or Jurrasic park or I donno, Casper for example, those were mind blowing! But the rest were mostly welcomed although we all knew they sucked! But still welcomed.
