‘Best Visual Effects’ is the Academy Awards category that’s most accessible to casual moviegoers. It’s the only category that regularly features film series like Harry Potter, The X-Men, The Marvel Cinematic Universe, Star Wars, and Lord of the Rings. It’s the only category that’s judged on the basis of “oh my god, how cool was that?!” That’s why I was pretty excited that supercut maestros at Burger Fiction have put together this compilation of every Best Visual effects winner from 1927’s Wings (not the sitcom) to 2015’s Ex Machina.
Apparently, with all of the snapchatting and whatsapping, some people just don’t have 6ish hours to watch classic movies. That’s what’s so great about the Indiana Jones recap above, and the Back To The Future recap below.
