December 29, 2009: "Another Decade Bites the Dust"

Post Re: December 29, 2009: "Another Decade Bites the Dust"
I think of Gollum as iconic. Andy Serkis was brilliant and, as someone else has said, owns the role. More than that, Gollum was the first CGI character that genuinely worked. (Jar Jar Binks missed that boat by a long way). As time goes one, Gollum will become more and more recognised as a defining moment in cinema... the moment when CGI learned to act. Exhibit A for the prosecution.... Mr Berardinelli used Gollum as a yardstick when reviewing the Avatar characters... he is the benchmark. He may be surpassed at some point, but that will not diminish the achievement of those who made this brilliant character.

Credit to Jackson, Serkis and all the Weta boys 'n' girls. They made the decade's icon.

So sez me.

We will see where Gollum stands when the movies have had about 15 years to age.

If you think animated characters never moved realistically and expressed themselves emotionally before that, I've got some old Fleischer animation for you to look at.

Certainly, "Myyyy Precioussss" has been assimilated into modern pop culture.
