          But it’s not the same as creating something from nothing. It was probably mind blowing and holds up better now, but at the time seeing CGI like Lawnmower Man would be insane

    I showed the trailer for this to my coworker because I recommended him RRR and he said he couldn't make it more than 20 minutes in because the CGI was too bad and it was taking him out it. I remember people being so blown away by this CG that they were showing clips from it on the fucking news. When Jurassic Park dropped, everyone shit their pants they were so impressed, and then Toy Story was a phenomenon too. People are super jaded now.

      Tbh I always just found the CGI in this movie to be scary and I think it holds up because it’s still scary in how strange it looks

      It's a movie about virtual reality. No shit the CGI looks "fake". It's not meant to portray reality, it's portraying an environment that in the fiction of the movie is artificial and computer-generated. How can a person not get this?

        It’s also taking place in a time when computers weren’t as good.

          Yes but that's a nondiegetic reason rather than a diegetic one like the one in

    They have audience reactions to famous movie scenes like when Darth Vader reveals he’s Luke Skywalker’s father in the Empire Strikes Back so it had me wondering if anyone remembers audience reactions to this scene since it was so ahead of its time

    >The plot of Stephen King's 1975 short story "The Lawnmower Man" concerns Harold Parkette, who hires "Pastoral Greenery and Outdoor Services Inc." to cut his lawn. Parkette later spies on the serviceman, discovering his lawnmower mows the lawn by itself while he crawls after it, naked, eating the grass. The serviceman is actually a satyr who worships the Greek god Pan. When Parkette tries to call the police, the mower and its owner ritually kill him as a sacrifice to Pan.

      Movies didn't used to need to be mega blockbusters to be considered successful. There were much fewer entertainment options so more small movies got made by studios.

    When I saw this scene back in the day, the graphics looked as weak as they do today.
