So the first 3D animation was... of a 2D figure.

Lasered directly onto the film, no less.

I can't remember if this was the first or second fully CGI character in film. There was a vector animated head in a parking garage in some movie that I think predates this but I forget what. It may have been Gnaw: Food of the Gods 2, of all things.

It was the horror-anthology movie "Nightmares" from 1983, which also featured a giant rat. The segment ""The Bishop of Battle" has, I believe, the first fully CGI character in a feature film.

What about TRON? But maybe that's not officially CGI in the way that yous guys is talking about it.

Jurrasic Park was much better than this and also came out are the same time yet no one ever mentions it's visuals.

Old_Zircon - 2015-07-14

A-, would be an A but saying Jurassic Park came out at the same time as this was laying it on a bit too heavy.

Yeah, Guardians of the Galaxy was in between and was way better than both, at least according to the Wikipedia.. "In 1988, following his mother's death, a young Peter Quill is abducted from Earth by the Ravagers." 1988 was a good year for CGI :)

I remember really liking this movie as a kid. I don't know if it would hold up if I watched it now or not.
Cool effect fer sure.

Old_Zircon - 2015-07-14

I saw it a couple of years ago, it holds up pretty well. The critics who complained that the second half devolves into "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom in Victorian England" weren't wrong but that's still pretty entertaining, and the art direction's pretty great for what it is. It's one of the best big-studio family films of the 80s as far as I'm concerned.

This movie gave me nightmares when I was a kid; it's actually one of my first memories of a movie. I must've been four, or whenever it came out on VHS and we watched it at some sort of holiday party with people that had a big screen. I can't remember what the scene at the end was about but I do remember crying a bunch. I need to watch this again.

I loved this movie so much when it came out.

Jesus, forgive me for making a joke on this super serious website. My folly was to make light of some kind of old animation, which many adult babies would naturally hold dear.
