indiana-jones.jpgIf you sit through a viewing of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and feel the whole thing looks a little, well, fake, that’s because it is.

As an AP story notes, “(Indiana Jones) hasn’t been around for 19 years, a time in which special effects has mostly migrated from soundstage to server.” Although Steven Spielberg considered going back to this old-school approach, a visual effects supervisor says, “we realized we could serve the story better by using our digital tools.”

Of course, if there are any more Indiana Jones sequels after this one, the biggest special effects will be making an geriatric Harrison Ford appear to walk without a cane.
