The day before yesterday I finally got around to watching one of my birthday presents, the new release of THX 1138. I remember liking it the first time I saw it but I was truly amazed that it looked so good this time around. Imagine my surprise when it turned out that George Lucas has inserted lots of CG.

I feel pretty stupid not spotting that in the first place but it’s a tribute to how well the building extensions, etc. fitted in. My sense of betrayal is probably best expressed in nerd terms as “Oona Goota, Solo?”, a phrase that I constantly find myself groping for but can never remember on the spot. You can read more about it here. A comparison with the original shots are here
