LotR movies aged like milk

So I'm rewatching the movies during my meals and I couldn't think about how bad the movies look now.

If it's the bad editing, weird slow motions, awkward close ups, bad CGI, some bad acting moment, Elija's screams.

Like when Galadriel go crazy, the scream, music, the cgi all is awful in one single shot, makes you wonder how the hell it was approved.

Or when Frodo wakes up when he got healed, this dreamy-like part, wtf is this lol

I can understand why it was ahead of it's time and a masterpiece in 2001 but 19 years later, it looks pretty awful compare to other movies in that genre (or CGI-based) during those years.

 

Going to sleep, plz don't eat my head, I'm sensitive after a user personal attacked me yesterday :fatcat:

Are you watching something else entirely? The LOTR movies have aged extraordinarily well because they DIDN’T rely too much on CGI, (the orcs and uruk-hai for example). Every time I watch them, they still feel like they were made recently, and I completely forget that these films are nearly 20 years old. They’re absolutely timeless.

No. They aged very well. Most movies and TV shows wish they could be them. Star Wars aged poorly and had horrible sequels

I mean, you can't tell me that this scene didn't age bad:

I mean I still love the movies, it's just some scenes looks very bad now

Nope. Still looks fantastic. How else could they have done it in 2001?

Okay but that video quality looks like it was filmed on a flip phone from 15 years ago :laughga:
