Wish this type of VFX was still around. Well, maybe that's not fair. I'm sure VFX artists could absolutely nail this today if not better, but they're overworked and underpaid and constantly rushed to move onto the next project.

As much as I don’t like these movies, I gotta admit that, yes, it does have the best VFX. Like some others are saying, it also just LOOKS the best in general thanks to the cinematography.
