GEEKERY: When Movie Effects Go Bad

scorpion king

For all of the mind blowing effects in movies there are multitudes of hilariously bad ones…

Be it a practical effect or CG these are… special. Some of them don’t deserve a lowly participation award.

Submarines don’t do this outside of James Bond movies… hopefully…

The explosion is totally awesome… uh-huh…

Speaking of dinosaurs, never let Ed Wood near them. (Note: contains censored cave lady chest.)

Troll 3 + Helicopter Crash =

These monsters are scary… in how horribly rendered they are.

What are some of the worst special effects you’ve seen?

  • Gotta love the Halo Shotgun-sound from the last clip.

  • Some these weren’t great but were okay for them time and only really suck now.

      No, some of them were VERY bad for the time….

      • Well yeah, but not all of them is my point

  • Aezeal

    I didn’t think the Die another day things was that bad.

  • LordKrungharr

    I disagree that things suck because they don’t look 100% real.

    Glad there was the Die another day inthe first, it was sooooo bad…

  • fabiobile

    Please don’t ever mention anything from The Asylum or SyFy from now on. Their poor special effects are usually done on purpose or for exploitive reasons.

    The really sad part about the star wars one – is it was a creative failure. There could have been a bazillion other ways to handle the shot (where han walked behind jabba). They could have used a tight shot of someone else’s face, a pic of the docking bay, a pick of chewie, a pick of boba etc. I am stunned no one in the room had a better idea.

    • Orblivion

      The better idea would have been to not reintroduce that scene. Not only did it deliver a terrible special effects performance in a series renowned for its special effects, but it also no longer fit the character of Jabba that had been established in Return of the Jedi.
