Matrix was a much bigger breakthrough in Movie special effects.

They could have used a little bit more comparison with older movies.

Like the first king kong and the last one.
And with the star war movies.

Forgetting this small detail, I loved the clip.

; )

Special effects and a green screen is not special effects.

Models of spaceships with plastic explosive in them is special effects.

LAME video.

108 years of special effects would be a good name for this.

Nicely done video, very representative of what have been improved in special effects and CGI in the last century... I'm wondering about what will be next?

#2 I agree about the fact that older movies could have been more represented, like Schwarzenneger's first movie 'Hercules in New York' (1971) when he get's ligthning bolt fired at him then fall down to earth... :D
Also add 'À La Conquête Du Pôle' in 1915, based upon Jules Verne's “The Adventures Of Captain Hatteras” and Willis O'brien genious for 'The Lost World' in 1925! What a shame that the maker of this vid didn't put those in :'(

I also have to agree with #8 about green screen not being special effects, it's CGI but... How dumb can you be to say 'Special effects(...)is not special effects.'? >:)

To be pedantic, the clip of the death star blowing up at 1:49 was from the remastered (1997) Star Wars version - not the original (1977), so it's not in the right place in the chronology.

cg is cool, but play-dough was better
