5 THINGS THAT ALWAYS LOOK FAKE IN MOVIES
I'm omitting common logic snafus and bad CG. This is basic stuff that continue to elude most films:
- •Old age make-upSee also: young age make-up. Exception: Max Von Sydow in THE EXORCIST. For years afterward I'd see Von Sydow in movies and think, "he's still alive?"
- •Composite "old" photos of the castException: the prom pic of Rosamund Pike and Neil Patrick Harris in GONE GIRL.
- •Actors' body language during greenscreen driving scenesThey're not looking at the road, their hands are just resting on the steering wheel, which they never turn. No stops at intersections.
- •Severed headsThanks to Snopes.com, I had the misfortune to see an actual severed human head. It looked fake too. Game set match, heads.
