Best Practical Effects in Film

Visual and special effects in a movie can make or break it. A movie with solid acting that looks terrible might one day become a cult classic, but most of the time, if there’s bad special effects, people are turned off. This week, we take a look at our favorite practical effects in film. What are practical effects? These are special effects created with real, physical objects and no CGI or animation. Practical effects include puppets, robots, scale models, giant moving sets, prosthetics, and more.

What are some of your favorite practical effects? Did we miss anything you think deserved to be on our lists? We want to know!
