Science and sci-fi geeks come out of the government closet!
from a poll conducted by wired magazine: http://www.wired.com/underwire/2011/01/sci-fi-vfx/
Sometimes it’s the little things that send the mind soaring. Take the pen that floats, weightless, before being plucked from the air by a space stewardess in 2001: A Space Odyssey: It’s a simple scene, but it feels real and sends the imagination into hyperdrive.
Still, when Wired.com asked its readers to name their favorite sci-fi visual effects of all time, we got plenty of over-the-top nominations, from Alien’s vicious extraterrestrials to Avatar’s groovy bioluminescent trees. The conversation that unfolded in the comments section of our Monsters giveaway post was surprisingly thoughtful — and surprisingly long. We received more than 1,300 comments.
Here, in no particular order, is a sampling of the best sci-fi visual effects of all time that readers recalled.
