So, I hear mixed opinions about him being in it.
Personally, didn't bother me one bit. Thoughts?
I loved it. I was preparing for it, but it did not distract me at all, I thought it looked great.
Technology definitely advanced since Tron: Legacy. It wasn't perfect but it was good enough not to break the suspension of disbelief. I especially thought that [blackout]Leia[/blackout] looked great.
Tarkin looked fantastic. I was shocked at how well rendered he was, and the filmmakers did a great job incorporating him into the narrative.
He looks great, I couldn't believe that technology had advanced that far. Though he is the bad guy so I didn't feel anything even if his face looks menacing and unsettling/ a bit unnatural.
OTOH the CGI at the end made me close my eyes in secondhand embarrassment, may be that person is considerably more familiar than Tarkin so I immediately feel cringed (while I barely remember what Tarkin looks like so I didn't feel that he was a bit "fake").
I thought he looked great. My Dad who went with me didn't even realize he was CGI. I noticed, but it didn't distract me at all.
He looked amazing, very lifelike. Best use of that technology I've seen in a film in my opinon. One of my friends was surprised to find out that wasn't a real person.
You think this'll continue to be a thing moving forward? Disney seems to be the main leader in this, starting with Tron: Legacy, and then Ant-Man, and this. Here, it makes a ton of sense. But, lets say they decide the next spin-off movies, and a couple take place between 6 and 7. Now I doubt they do a full movie with these CGI characters, but do you think we should expect CGI/de-aged Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher for significant roles going forward? What about in say another 30 years, when there's a good chance we may have lost these actors to old age. True, 30 years could be a huge leap to the technology, but still, it's clear this is a thing Disney is comfortable with. Do you guys think it'll continue and in a larger capacity?
He looked great but he was still just CGI. He didn't feel like a real character.
Such a great use of the tech. Very fluid and seamlessly integrated concerning the character's presence. It's not a stretch to believe there are those who'll be unaware that Tarkin was a digital creation.
I wish the Leia spot at the end was done as well.
I was thrown off at first, but I ended up liking it a lot.
I was really surprised at how well he was done and it didn't distract me. If I hadn't known ahead of time that they were going to do this, I wouldn't have doubted anything. However, I hope they don't overdo this going forward
It was significantly better than Tron: Legacy, but not quite as good as young Tony Stark. Overall, didn't bother me.
I was suprised when he appeared. I heard the rumors a long time ago but don't remember hearing more about it after that. I thought they were probably false so I was really suprised.
I'm assuming Disney would have had to have gotten legal permission to use Peter Cushings likeness in this. You'd think they'd have to.
The CGI they used to bring Cushing back to life was the only CGI in the film that looked "off" to me. Don't get me wrong, it was amazingly well done. It just didn't fit seamlessly, is all.
The CGI won't hold up. I'm sorry. It looks fine. But when CGI looks "fine" in a movie now, it takes about 5 years to look like crap. I feel the same [BLACKOUT]about Leia[/BLACKOUT].
Sigh... Apparently they didn't learn their lesson from the prequels.
Peter Cushing's estate is mentioned in the credits.
It is just weird after watching a bunch of Hammer movies.
What they did with Tarkin was nothing short of amazing...
General look was pretty damn amazing, don't know if it was the timing or the animation of the mouth, but when he talked it was a little weird... that part felt dated. But yeah his overall texture mapping and all that and the tone of the voice itself was amazing. Felt similarly about the other character.... though the model on that one looked to have a little too much weight in the face.
The guy that played Pius Thicknesse voiced Tarkin.
I thought he looked great. A certain character near the end looked a lot worse.
My dad didn't even notice that he was cgi. And I thought he looked very good. I'm surprised they used him so much, but I'm not complaining.
