Infantile Relationship to Basic Physics
December 25, 2018
The special effects may very well have been written by a three-year-old. Case in point: to even the simplest of minds, (Spoiler Alert!) the ferry would have sank instantly had it been cut in half as in footage, Spidey or no Spidey to pull it back together with the strength of Superman. Some relationship with reality needs to be maintained in order to possess any tension for viewers. If a film requires a total and complete suspension of reality to watch, it has no staying power and becomes instantly irrelevant. Special effects departments (and directors) should be versed in basic physics
and materials behavior as well as psychology in order to make films that give viewers a sense of effort, of enormity, of pain or pleasure or what have you, otherwise it falls utterly flat and dull.
