Learn What Industry Professionals Say About Star Wars

YouTube Channel “Corridor Crew” has a relatively new, ongoing series called “VFX Artists React to Bad & Great CGI” in which they critique various VFX from movies and tell the audience what’s either great or bad about them. Hearing this from people who work in the field can be highly interesting. A short while ago the Corridor Crew took on the Star Wars prequels. While many here remember bad greenscreen effects or overly CGI looking scenes (even if many of those used traditional models and miniatures) the VFX artists actually have a much more positive view of the effects in the prequels, since they were in many ways groundbreaking, and they will tell you why. They also point out when something didn’t work, but for them the good seems to outweigh the bad.
But then the Corridow Crew also has a brand new series called “Stuntmen react…” and in the video that was released the other day they go through a bunch of movies and tv shows (Mission Impossible, Punisher etc) and they also take a detailed look at the Last Jedi throne room fight. The professional stunt coordinator (he was, among other things, the stunt coordinator for The Punisher show) who analyzes the scene has a few interesting things to say about that, let’s just say he was less than impressed… So click through for two videos today, one that talks about the visual effects of the prequels and another that analyzes the Last Jedi Throne Room fight.

Attack of the Clones

Learn why this scene was groundbreaking

Let’s begin with the Last Jedi Throne Room fight, which is the much shorter video, it’s part of a 14 minute video about stunts from various movies or shows, the Last Jedi segment is about 2 1/2 minutes long, if you click the video it will jump right to the section talking about The Last Jedi (but I encourage you to watch the full video when you have the time):

And then there’s the 15 minute video about the visual effects in the Star Wars Prequels. Quite long, but still worth watching, in my opinion. If you are interested in effects even a little bit this will provide you some great insight:

Do you see the visual effects of the prequels in a somewhat different light now? And what do you think about the throne room fight critique? They didn’t even mention mysteriously disappearing knives here that try to save yet another badly choreographed sequence. But the prequels, despite many great fight scenes, also have a few blunders, like Anakin willingly opening his defence and presenting his outstretched arms to Dooku in Attack of the Clones, just so he can very conveniently cut one arm off.
