film history 11

In a certain sense, cinema began as an optical “trick.”  The initial appeal of the Zoetrope, for example, was that it made flat, static images appear to move.  Film, therefore, has always owed a debt to the public’s fascination with special effects. As we move through the 1930s, King Kong, the Wizard of Oz, even Dracula, all rely on the appeal of making the impossible seem real. Nevertheless, there are drawbacks to special effects. Think about it; have you ever seen a film or part of a film that was heavy with miraculous special effects that you found “silly,” or actually bored you?  Name that film, the special effects presented, and try to explain why it bored you.  Why do special effects sometimes spoil a film?
