        I’m so interested in Mr. Knoll’s “Hall of Fame / Hall of Shame” VFX examples that he keeps handy on his computer.

        I looked up the “shame” example he mentions (Indy Last Crusade biplane fight) — not only is the lighting off, but also very funny that they are both wearing hats, flying around the skies in an open cockpit, with no wind.


          Flight Sequence Defender: I love the scene and think Ford and Connery sell it hard enough to work even if Knoll is 1000% right about the obvious staginess.  Plus it still looks better than the rafting sequence in Temple of Doom.
