So Far This Century: Visually Stunning But Terrible Films


With an ever-expanding toolbox of visual trickery modern cinema has the ability to captivate audiences quickly with stunning looking films. The ubiquitous nature of CG, both the tidal wave of imagery and the more subtle enhancements, has given rise to a reliance on these tools and can leave us with a hollow film, orbiting an utterly redundant narrative populated with thinly fleshed-out characters.
Visuals are obviously a defining part of cinema and they matter a great deal – there’s probably an article waiting to be written here about visually bad films which are good films – but today  HeyUGuys have decided to bring out the films, So Far This Century, that are visually impressive or beautiful but are ultimately bad films.
