New Favorite Thing: Bad CGI

Over on reddit they’ve created a new subcategory that is nothing but videos of the worst examples of CGI from TV and film, anywhere from 5 to 30 years ago. It’s my new favorite thing because most of the videos are something I saw at the time and thought it was okay, but now today it looks absolutely absurd by comparison.

Some was obviously bad at the time (Wolverine’s claws in X-Men Origins) but others like the Scorpion King above didn’t seem all that awful at the time. But now? Yeeesh.

Watch the clip above, and see the whole collection here.
