The NeverEnding Story III: Escape from Fantasia (1994) (part 2 of 8)

The film opens with impressive CGI landscape shots of Fantasia. They’re pretty and all, and I won’t take that away from anyone, but it’s obvious this movie was made around that time when Hollywood was still feeling the whole “computer” thing out. It’s not as bad as Spawn, but none of this looks A) real or B) like any other background in this film or C) anything like the Fantasia we saw in the first two films. I almost feel bad making fun of it, knowing that it’s not really their fault—it’s just the technology (and budget) they had to work with at the time. I’ll just marvel at how pretty it is, and move on.
