I love the look of Earthquake.  I know it doesn't always look realistic, but just imagine the amount of time that was spent on the models used for the movie.


Well maybe we will get a remake! However  movies about Earthquakes only seem to get made for TV  
TRON ?

Firefox is so outdated now as to be irrelevant, the Cold War is long over and the notion of a pilot having to "think in Russian" in order to pilot the plane was just "bunkum" to begin with.
I can't think of any films I'd like to see get a CGI update, I think Hollywood should be concentrating on new and original storylines rather than re-visiting old ones.
I agree!  However the cartoon blood is what I would fix in the elevator scene in the movie "earthquake"
Can't we just accept that those films were made before there were any cgi? Can't we just accept them as a piece of cinematic history and leave them alone?
CGI is overrated.So none.
Just wait for the inevitable remake for "Earthquake".

The only film I can think of that needs a CGI make over is Star Wars!!! Oh wait....no.......
Just thinking about this now and Firefox comes to mind. I think it's a great cold war thriller that, on viewing now, is let down by the effects towards the end of the film.

Poor John Dykstra. His work in the 70's and 80's does get a good kicking doesn't it? The effects for Star Wars and Firefox were, at the time, the best that could be acheived. The challenges on Firfox were that all of the dogfight sequences took place in daylight and over ice flows. Star Wars at least had the comfort zone of having the blackness of space as a background to help hide the matte lines. Firefox had no such luxury and it's to John Dykstra's credit the effects ended up as good as they did. However, even back then, they stood out as effects with problems.

Today, it would be really useful for the movie if a small budget could be raised to re-do the end sequence (like the Death Star battle of Star Wars was) with CGI so as to not have the viewer taken out of the film so much at it's climax.

It hopefully goes without saying that in the unlikely event such a restoration takes place any resulting DVD is packaged with the original unaltered version.

Ghostbusters is another one.
I've got no problem with the majority of the effects in the film but the stop motion 'devil dogs' could do with replacing. I'm not suggesting they be erased from our collective memories, (Mr Lucas) the originals should still accompany any updated version the way Spielberg did with ET. Although he was quite vocal about the changes he wanted to make and the reasons behind them, he still packaged the original untouched version along with the Spec. Ed. That's the way to do it in my opinion. There's less wailing and gnashing of teeth with fans of the films that way.
