How hard could it be to replace all the monster shots apart from the octopus in the movie Warlords of Atlantis.

Aside from having the longest title for a discussion ever, What do you think. A possibility? Video below is one such creature already replaced with a stop motion one I did a few weeks ago.

I agree about the consequences of reworking an effect for the plain sake of reworking an effect. It is far from consequenceless when it comes to cultural education. I'd say let the past be and do something of your own while honoring what you find honorable in said past. 

I think your  right there actually. I'm pretty sure I've already proved my point with this short video anyway.

Stan - You don't even have to go as far as switching to CGI for any replacement for the effects in either Kong or 7th Voyage... even if you were to replace them with new and improved stop motion, I would still disapprove strongly.

i agree. youre ignoring the fact that the charm of the flaws is what keeps people coming back to these movies.

Would one even THINK about going into the Louvre and "retouching" the Mona Lisa?  Well actually a few years back that is exactly what the then-Director of the Louvre was suggesting, along with many other masterpieces!  Get a grip, people!  No one has the moral right to go back and fiddle with a work of art just because they can technically, except the creator of the work.  Although I agree that Lucas damaged his work, he was the only one who had the right to change it.

So I'm guessing you're against the idea of remaking 'The Wrong Trousers' into CGI-S3D? You don't think it would be improved if Wallace looked like a real man and Gromit looked like a real dog?

DON'T PANIC!

Nobody's even suggesting that, I'm just joking - calm down.

But Ron, you've planted the seed now. Pray Hollyweird doesn't read that.

It's only a matter of time before Lucas does Star Wars in 3D and gets yet another theatrical release.. Then there will be the disco soundtrack versions, then the version with Jabba as skinny and Luke with ginger hair. I say that because the only other place Lucas could go after 3D and disco is the very bottom of that barrel.

Oh dear Gromit!!!

That's the first time I heard that one.

Don't overlook this part of Ron's post:

I was just trying to imagine what a photorealistic Wallace might look like. It was the weirdest thing when I heard Wallace's voice coming out of Peter Sallis for the first time in one of his live action roles.

Mouth gapes open like a muppet!

This is awesome.

Your work is awesome.

Got to be rtro. Muppets are good. However the mouth area could be distorted digitally around the back jaw points to create stretch. on something a tad more up to date.
